    what's up aak big ups for that graffik battle

    yes fuck the hate, i forever did have some ill tracks on there, i remember listening to that track with beans and nas all the time, beans had one of the illest verses ever, had me aniticipating 'the truth' album so much

    ur right about el nino, actually alot of def squad stuff gets overlooked

    and i still play all the redman albums, my favourite being dare iz a darkside, not only a sick album but crazy artwork too, redman can make dope beats too (i already mentioned the jamal album in the thread starter, redman's beats killed it)

    i don't see how cats are putting Dare Iz a Darkside on there, it's not underrated at all.
    Prolly hailed as one of the top 10.

    Now a good answer is Muddy Waters because i think that one gets way over looked. To me it was better than DIAD.

    But putting DIAD as an underrated album is the same as putting OBFCL or Ready to Die as underrated.

    for real i understand what your saying i just remember that when DIAD came out people constantly compared it to his debut and said it was a weak sophomore effort, i was only really commenting on how ill an album it is not so much on how underrated it is, muddy waters is dope though

    sorry man never really been a nelly or ja rule fan at all but did kinda like some tracks on country grammar

    Nah, never even heard of it, but I'm a Declaime fan.

    I'll trade you something for it if you want to up it for me, I'm pretty sure I have something you'll want.

    Kankick makes some of my favorite beats. That new Opus album is cool too.

    Cosign on whoever said Shad - The Old Prince

    El-P - I'll Sleep When You're Dead (This cat gets overlooked a lot, most creative album I've heard in a looong time)
    Talib Kweli - Ear Drum (very consistent album..from track to track. Both quality and quantity)
    Aesop Rock - Labor Days (no one mentions this everrr..it's annoying cause it's a classic album with original rhyme patterns, style, and lyrics. Has some of the best beats on any hip hop album imo)
    John Cena - You Can't See Me (I know this is weird for some of y'all but damn he's a way better rapper than a wrestler. It's not a great album or anything but I doubt anyone knows it even exists..lol. It's worth a look. It's mostly braggadicio tracks with great beats but isn't that most of these new rappers doing anyways?)

    Awwww shit, I've heard that before on Madlib's Mind Fusion Vol 1 (another underrated hip hop album, even though it's not really an album). Never knew what it was. Dope.
