Those two and Longterm 2.
I wouldn't say they are the best by any means, but I do enjoy the creative energy displayed during that time by the label. Also, the production back then was much more "underground hip hop" based as opposed to having a heavy trap influence.
Q also had a smoother, much more subtle delivery on many of the songs..which he still displays from time to time now, but it just seems he is more in that YOCK YOCK mode more often than not nowadays.

Cause, just like someone else said, I got gassed off of Q based on the singles and the album is eh. Still bought it though, but, gotta call a spade a spade.
Come to grips with the fact that most OKP's are of the Nut Hugger lineage, so, if you' re not part of the little cliques that exist 'round here, your posts will probably tank like Souljaboy's album sales.

And I am really into setbacks. I think it's as good as his latest release. OD is really good too but Kendrick was still finding his sound on that I would put it over everything else but Section 80 and GKMC are still definitely better for me.
OD was a really good album but Section 80 blew my mind when It came out. His song making skills expanded greatly on that one and on GKMC he expanded his album making skills. GKMC is basically boys in the hood 2 they should make a movie out of if, it could be better than 8 mile.
I think you may have a case of "he used to be all mine" disease where you stop liking an artist as much when everyone else discovers him.

The first half up until Cycle bangs for me but after that I tune out. H&C is the better album. I don't really have to skip a damn thing. For an album to be that long and you just let it play, that's a big deal. I also love Control System. That was my soundtrack for a minute.
