    Tracey Lee- Many Facez

    [youtube]vRzpuVCuBt8[/youtube]

    this album is so incredible... I could argue it to be the best album EVER... and no one knows... all because he chose the worst song on the album to make the single... smh

    this nigga even had Biggie on his shit and cats slept...lol... he literally rapped as like 5 different cats on this album... thats why its called many faces... and on the last track 1 of the personalities got shot and each personality was questionin each other on who done it... sick

    I thought RA's album was pretty disappointing actually. Dude spends half the time rapping about how much of a legend he should've been, and the other half the time referencing all the dudes who had their shit together and made more out of their careers than he did.

    Not to say he doesn't have a ton of talent, but I thought he could've done a hell of a lot more with a full length release.

    NElly First albums was amazing. Fuck what anybody as to say about that, and blood in my eye by Ja rule was mad slept on too, mostly because he was too busy being bitched up by 50 during that period.

    this..........



    is a great choice......only down south album better is atliens which is one of the best albums period.....and production wise best hip hop album ever to me...goodie mobb is under rated period.....one of my favorite groups ever sometimes i think they even edge out kast because of their consciousness.

    some of my other albums that underrated.

    ANY hell razah album........that motherfucker is so ill with it......

    most all of little brothers albums.

    skyzoo- could nine- the 3 day high- one of the illest albums ive heard in years yet i never hear anybody mention it much. 9th wonder + skyzoo = unbeatable.

    bronze nazareth - the great migration

    j-coles mixtapes.

    ummmmm lot of shit ill come back and add to this....im kinda phaded right now so cant think.......but i like puttin cats on to ill music so ill add. im always give'n friends discs of shit they never heard of besides when they around me.....sometimes i think i should have been a dj instead of a mc/producer.

    The thread's called underrated albums. I would say all of those are underrated, even if most heads know about them, the public doesn't.

    More:

    Kankick - From Artz Unknown
    Kenn Starr - Starr Status
    Damu the Fudgemunk - Overtime
    Damu the Fudgemunk - Spare Time

    I think Leak Bro's-Waterworld was pretty underrated. One of my favorite concept albums.

    This.

    And if you can cop the shit 9th did with Jean Grae that's a good look too. 9th gets along with pretty much anyone lyrical.

    I always thought Chaundon was pretty underrated too. His joints on Dream Merchant vol. 2 were ill.
