5 most listened to of all time? That's pretty easy -

Straight outta Compton - NWA
AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted - ICE CUBE
Enter the 36.. - WU TANG
Dare Iz a Darkside - REDMAN
Music to Drive-By - EIHT/CMW

Most of those aren't horrible as far as holding up, but I probably wouldn't list them as my favorite albums or best emcee list or anything. Well except for Reggie and a few of the Wu guys.

I was trying to convince my co-worker today that Q-tip is worst rapper of all time while we listened to the Tribe station on Pandora. Most overrated at least. Dude has a good voice, that's it, his lyrics are garbage. No content at all, he doesn't talk about anything at all ever. Nobody would jump on board with my side though, and now I feel like an outcast.

I left my wallet in El Segundo? That song isn't about ANYTHING, it's madness!

Yes it is, it's about he left his WALLET in EL SEGUNDO.

All that aside, I have to admit you're right, his lyrics and delivery are really nothing special. He's been getting by on the voice and the fact that Phife Dawg is even worse.

I'M SO SORRY Q-TIP!!!!!

How could I forget about Gang Starr??? The Step In The Arena video was like mad max goes hip hop.  The production on Mass Appeal is A-mazing as well.
I also looooooooooooooooooved anything to do with the heiroglyphics crew back then.  my roommate at the time did the hip hop show at our college radio station so i had access to all his 12 inches with lots of awesome b-sides.

i'm real stupid when it comes to new hip hop. i like SOME busdriver stuff. i'm gonna check out johnson&johnson for sure. 


I traded my Tical CD to someone for the Moment of Truth album, and all my friends thought I was a fool for it. My friends were dummies damnit.

Also, Busdriver is amazing when he's on, but he's really hit or miss for me. Fear of a black tangent is a pretty nice album though.

I think this is the part where we bump fists or some shit, yeah?

They had some really slick production too, which I think was even more important to their success than Tips voice. Just classic beats that definitely still hold up.

Busdriver tries too hard.
Breakfast- I'm havin' a time
Wheelies- I'm havin' a time
Headlocks- I'm havin' a time
Drunk Tank- not so much a time
George St.- I'm havin' a time
Brenda- I'm havin' a time
Bingo- I'm havin' a time
House Arrest- I'm still havin' a time

When he's on he's great: Low-Flying Winged Books

Mos Def - Black on Both Sides
Jay Z - Black Album (along side the Grey Album)
Beastie Boys - Hello Nasty (or anything before that)
RJD2 - Deadringer
Quasimoto - The Unseen (soooo good)
Madvillain - Madvillainy
MF Doom - Mm.. Food
Gnarls Barkley - St. Elsewhere

Quasimoto is my #1 for sure, I think I may have missed some stuff there...

Love Quasimoto, most any Madlib project is awesome.
For instrumental/breaks the Madlib Beat Konducta series is pretty amazing.
Sounds like someone was working as a conduit for nature's natural vengeance.  Just like Jesus.  And some of the others.

The second Quasimoto album was very forgettable, I thought. All I can remember from it is the track with the drunk dude begging for a drink. 'Suck my a$$$ with a straw!'
