I find it hard to believe that so many people have failed to notice the amount of great hip hop albums that came out in 2004/2005.Everyone is bitchin about hip hop being so dull & all that ::) Well yeah,there's alot of that but dont say there aint any good albums anymore.I get the feeling everyone's checking the so called "hip pop" releases more than actual typical hip hop cd's that everyone claims exists no more.Well news flash,these 2 years have been very strong for hip hop,its really funny how people blindly make statements about the latest state of hip hop without knowing any actual facts other than Lil Jon producing this or that song,Eminem releasing another album & so on.Here's a small list of albums that came out in 2004/2005,hopefully this will open some peoples eyes & stop all the hating against 2004/2005's hip hop.Let me also add that this is just a small amount of dope hip hop albums that came out in 2004/2005,there's tons more.

In no particular order:

Masta Killa - No Said Date


Cormega - The Testament


Common - Be


Royce Da 5'9 - Death Is Certain


Masta Ace - A Long Hot Summer


Talib Kweli - The Beautiful Struggle


Ghostface Killah - The Pretty Toney Album


Mobb Deep - Amerikaz Nightmare


Planet Asia - The Grand Opening

I agree with you. Hip Hop has fine. Once people stop being on some Uncle Rico shit and get into the New Millenium, they'll find out, too.

That's actually kinda true, the only problem is that these albums don't get much shine in the public eye. You really got to be putting some energy into looking around for good music, to really find the quality these days. Radio and tv hiphop is just trash overall.

well the difference between 2005 and lets say 1988 aint the quality of the good albums. the main difference is that in like say 88-92 very few wack cds was released. and i could put up 30 wack hip hop albums next to each one of them dope albums that has dropped so hip hop is not in a good state. alltho its not as bad peeps make it out to be but its still in a bad state. and outta the music i listen to only like 5-10% was released from 98-2005. but im not gonna go out a complain in every other thread about the state of hip hop, id rather throw on a G Rap or Rakim album and forget about all the bullshit thats been dropping lately.

Having said that the Kweli, Ghostface, Planet Asia and Mobb Deep albums were far from their best work, I wasn't really feeling the Royce and the Cormega album was unreleased material from the mid nineties. The Masta Killa, Common and Masta Ace albums were real dope though.

took the words right outta my mouth, except what ive heard of commons album didnt convince me THAT much, but i might d/l some more

im not going to demonize. Hiphop is not in a state of emergency (although by saying so an artist contributes to his own credibility nowadays), but im not gonna jump on a counter-bandwagon either. Its hard for me to judge objectively, because Im just past my only- and mainly-hiphop phases. No, i do not think youre inferior if hiphop is your fav music, only thing inferior is ignorance. Still, i find it interesting how most hiphop im still feeling is older stuff and its not nostalgia because that includes 90s shit i hear for the first time. Im bored with a lot of what is coming out nowadays, there is solid material, but the only REALLY REALLY convincing album of the last couple years to me is the Masta Ace. People like Ghostface, The Roots or Mobb Deep have all dropped solid stuff you cant complain about, but in all of these cases i just got the feeling it is not what it used to be. Then theres the indebatably wack like the three beautiful examples right above this post here. And there are many newcomers with talent, but they are dropping albums that are at best.......well, solid.

To sum up, I agree the dramatizing is stupid, but neither can I say I consider hiphop to be in a great state. if thats being on some Uncle Rico shit, then Im happy for everybody else. Im well aware its the subjective point of view of somebody whos not into hiphop that much anymore....peace

This is exactly what dudes like Melle Mel, Afrika Baambaataa etc. would say about the Hip Hop era we all love.
