i tried searching for another thread like this but couldn't so hope i'm not repeating anything but just out of interest, does anybody have any hip-hop albums that they think are unfairly slept on and underrated? Here are some of mine- 1) Rampage-Scouts Honor... By Way Of Blood (1997) Rampage (of the flipmode squad) was never a great mc to me but did enough to keep me listening and interested in a song, especially on this album. I have to admit the beats really did help this album out but there are some serious gems on here including 'Flipmode Iz Da Squad', 'Get The Money And Dip' and 'The Set Up'. 2) Jamal-Last Chance, No Breaks (1995) Yes Jamal a.k.a. Mally G from the group Illegal. This album has some of the best production I have heard from Erick Sermon and Easy Mo Bee. Just straight hard basslines and dark tones with some gritty lyrics...and Jamal was only a teenager at the time. Lyrically I thought dude was pretty ill, hardly said anything amazing or new but his flow and voice made it sound so raw believable. 3) Kam-Neva Again (1993) and Made In America (1995) At first I was only going to talk about Kam's second album but both are just as slept on as each other. To me these albums had that great balance of hard hitting west coast beats with some politically aware/conscious but not preachy lyrics. Almost like the bastard children of Ice Cube's 'AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted' and 'Death Certificate' (Kam would actually go on to record a harsh diss towards Cube on the track 'Whoop Whoop') Might add some more later.
