Less short answer: Definitely listen to them in sequence, but I would recommend even starting with Killer Mike's R.A.P. Music and El-P's Cancer 4 Cure album. These were released prior to the group was officially formed and are the basis of their sound. That Killer Mike album alone is in my opinion better than any of the RTJ albums.

I'm picturing someone coming back from complete isolation into 2020 with Trump as president, a pandemic going on, and trying to figure out smart phones, Instagram, and listening to RtJ.

Without giving it all away.. they had a tough time mixing and recording it and Mike D said it came out badly compared to the original demos and none of them cared for the finished product that was released
