Resurrection
Invocation
Time Travelin'
Soul Power
Be
Start the Show
The Dreamer
Joy & Peace

I'd even include The Neighborhood (from Nobody Smilin') and A Penny for my Thoughts (from Can I Borrow a Dollar ?) personally, although I assume those two (and maybe a couple others I *did* list) aren't as praiseworthy to others as they are to me.

In response to Reply # 7


  

          

...cause "In The House" was originally off Eddie F.'s & The Untouchables compilation "Let's Get It On" which came out earlier that year; but I guess me being so into hip-hop at the time I was one of the few who even heard of that album so when "Main Ingredient" dropped it "In The House" was the first time they heard the song while I heard it plenty of times.

I usually skip skits but this Intro is pretty much how skits should be done with the way it blends into the first song which has the sickest beat Wyclef ever made

Also a good choice. The Apocalypse vocal sample always was dope.

I feel like Clef got labeled as corny or something but I dug this album.

I'm also good with The Coming's intro.

The cool kids say that album is dated while talking up some weird, pretentious bullshit that he made later on. I say that CD is easily his most timeless work largely because it’s relatable. We Don’t Care set that album off lovely.

54. "Hi-Tek "Scratch Rappin'""
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I'm a sucker for album intros with instrumentals or a DJ doing some scratching at the beginning, so when Hi-Tek's album "Hi-Teknology" starts off it gets me so hyped with that neck snappin' beat then the scratching montage that Premier would do type stuff is how I always feel an intro to a rap album should start off.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

The intro to their album "1984" is also the name of the intro, with those spacey synth keys is so epic, it's basically sounds like the intro the song "Jump" but it's still a dope way to start off an album.

Such a dope run to start an album. And even more impressive considering the change in tone Stakes is High had relative to their first 3 albums, which were more playful.

that Jam and Lewis were NOT playing around. Then when Janet comes in? Set the scene for the rest of that album (and set the scene for the peak heights of her career over the next couple albums.)
