The fact you said new York fell off and only rate illmatic 03.5 is odd as its widely considered the greatest hip hop album ever made.And you don't even have it in your top 20.That's old man sydrome.

no you are wrong because you are stuck in your era aka 90's  . chad vader has good taste & at least respects were most of the music came from.  without the 80's rappers there would be no 90's rappers . also just because you did not groww up on it & were too young to understand the 80's rap does not mean that is not just as good as those 90's classic . that is just you being a baised prick with a closemind   the old school built this. not the 90's.  the only thing chad vader did wrong was put queen latifah on the list because she is from jersey not new york .

I'm not stuck in any era.I still buy albums that come out today and I'm a fan of southern music.Just because they paved the way doesn't make it better music.The lyrics and production were far better in the 90s then the 80s.That's a fact.Doesn't mean I don't listen to music from the 80s because I do.Its just classic old man sydrome.

there is not such thing as old man sydrome &. just baised closeminded pricks who think there is . see your opinion even says you stuck in the 90's by saying lyrics and production were far better in the 90s then the 80s &  because they paved the way doesn't make it better music.. this just proves you are stuck in 90's realize the original old school better then any new school because without them their would be nothing at for you listen to . without rakim there would be no nas.  the original school is always the best not new school. anybody who uses the old man sydrome has no real respect at all .

Any problems with that?

and yeah check the Wild Style movie and the OST....  ;) (CLASSIC!!!!)

Know Your Ledge  ;)



We said your favorite of all time not of the 80s Chad LOL


it's my favorites... ;)


yeah i didn't mean to come across as hating, i can just think of 10 other albums i prefer over that album is all


sure you can,but you ain't me  ;)
I (you) can pretty much see when cats got into Hip Hop trough their lists (and stopped caring  :P)
Saw that you mentioned ATCQ.... they got classics,but personally I hate them (and rest of the suburban ass Native Tongues)
For some reason I could not get into 90īs NYC sound.
I tried at the time,but nah..... I called it quits around "Breaking Atoms" (Main Source) and "Stunts,Blunts and Hip Hop" (DiamonD)
(thank god that the other regions picked up or else I would probably have stopped listening to Hip Hop).

I ain't ignorant,so I peep new shit,but can't say there's much that catch my ear  :-[


You don't rank illmatic


It's a classic,but only a 3.5 album in MY book  ;)


or 36 chambers


again a classic,but only a 3.5 in MY book  ;)


or ready to die in your top 20 from new York?
That's just fucking bizarre


Never cared for that pop ass,so no comment or rating.


So your one of those "old people" who are stuck listening to what they grew up to and can't adapt to music changing. It happens.


Nope,I just moved on to other regions and other Hip Hop generes.
Every artist,place and movement has it's time. I move on when they (IMO) fall off.
Let me ask you then,have you adapted to the ever changing styles of Hip Hop music?
It has gone from Hip Hop to Gangster Rap,Alternative rap,Mob Music,Bass,Bounce,Crunk,Hyphy,Snap and so on.
Are you up all that?
For those that know me here,know that I keep up..... so?  ;)



native tongues weren't boogie pussies
tribe ain't from the suburbs, there from a working class area in south Jamaica, queens and they were street brothers as well, you can work out the rest
DE la are from the suburbs of long island new york, but they weren't no slouches neither, they have been known to slap up niggers that were out of line too, trust
you get the drift


Well,I don't know about that (them being hardcore).
But then again who cares?
All I know is that I care about the music they produce.
At the time I kinda dug their shit.
Jungle Brothers first album is the shit.
Jungle Brothers- Straight out the Jungle
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/K0wVNPWWZIw&amp;hl=en&amp;fs=1" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/K0wVNPWWZIw&amp;hl=en&amp;fs=1</a>
Jungle Brothers-Because I Got It Like That

De La's first album is the shit too. Prince Paul went all out.
But shit their suburban asses dissed the hell out of Hip Hop and Gangster Rap.  :-[ :-X
Fuck,"De La Soul is Dead" is basicilly a anti gangster rap album.  :-[
De La Soul; Me Myself And I (you get the message  :P)
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/e7PAkrbQScw&amp;hl=en&amp;fs=1" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/e7PAkrbQScw&amp;hl=en&amp;fs=1</a>

Other than a few cuts here and there,I can't stand Tribe.  :P :-[



The fact you said new York fell off and only rate illmatic 03.5 is odd as its widely considered the greatest hip hop album ever made.
And you don't even have it in your top 20.That's old man syndrome.

I respect it but that doesn't mean its better.Rap evolved from the old school to more complex rhymes,more musical production etc.Compare the production of today to the 80s its not even close.Musically the 80s was simple.And rhymes?Compare some of the people now to then.Its not even close.Rakim was a one of a kind then.Nowadays theirs tons and tons of rappers that can spit sick shit.The 8 0s get its respect its the beginning.But that doesn't make it better.Your obviously stuck in the past.

you obiviosly stuck up new schools ass to show any true respect for old school . i listen to new school but i don't think any it is better then anything from the 80's & 90's at all . nothing about new school is better at all .instead it is the reason music is so crappy at all & you also the reason hip hop so crappy because you are blind new school follower . the old school created all this & you  & all your new school buddy owe the old school for that . the beginning is always the best because it is original . everybody after originals are clones & bandwagooners. nothing better then old school like 2pac said . remember rappers knew better then you & so did 2pac.

camp lo-uptown saturday night
big-ready to die
jay z-black album
run dmc-raising hell
beastie boys-5 boroughs
kid n play-face the nation
rakim-18th letter double disc, 2nd disc it had his best late 80's songs
kool moe dee-jive collection vol.2
i'm not sure if public enemy is from ny but if they are, nation of millions
i'd put slick rick great adventures but he's from england not ny
