Name a better album created by a hip hop group. Oh that's right you can't
>All jazz and nerd shit
mfw a rapper tries to add substance to the lyrics and themes of the album and people dismiss it because they think rap should only be about how good ya flow is, how much weed you smoke and how many bitches you fuck.
I love 36 chambers, but don't post this shit if you have no knowledge about hip-hop at all.
The Low End Theory
It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back
I love this album and it was one of the first albums that got me into rap, but I sadly don't listen to it as much anymore as I do other albums like these 3 for example.
>For a genre that started for black people to escape gang violence and culture
That's not why it started. It came about because Black/Latino kids weren't allowed into discotheques back in the 70's due to dress codes and racism.
Not even the best album by The Roots and it's better than Wu Tang debut. Not to take anything anyway from Wu Tang. It's quite good.
Also Outkast, Gang Starr Goodie Mob, and Cunninlynguists are quite good.
see but there is plenty of hip hop that does and has dine without being un-fucking-bearable music, crungeworthy as fuck, and actually impressive when looked at as a hip hop record
Kendrick is a completely average rapper and lyricist
>disrespecting The Roots, the best thing to happen to hip-hop post-2000
>putting Wu-Tang on a pedestal like an entry level pleb who jacks off to Illmatic and Ready to Die
>using edgy ass buzzwords
Nigga, do YOU listen to hip-hop? GZA is in my top 10 rappers of all time, but he doesn't come close to Black Thought.
>Mos Def and Talib Kweli: We Are Blackstar
>Little Brother: Minstrel Show
>any De La Soul album
>The Roots: Illadelph Half-Life
just off the top of my head
that album's decent, but it's so blown out of proportion; meme harder, fucking pleb
>vanilla /mu/-approved list
>v-validate my anonymous, public-facing opinion
why bother posting
