Actually, I give my mom credit for this. She loves music and has a great collection of records and CDs. My favorite artist is a tossup but some days I'd like to say Dave Matthews, who is also my mom's favorite. So there you go. Music can be in the family.

Also, live shows play a key role in my list. I never liked Justin Timberlake, Sting, or Madonna really until I saw them live. So that helps also -- live shows bring out something special and introduce you to new music, or not. In the prior case I'm usually hooked.

My friend got me hooked on Frank Zappa initially, which led me to explore his other albums, including Bongo Fury with Captain Beefheart. I decided to check out Beefheart's music outside of Zappa and after taking several listens to "get" his style, I've been loving his music ever since.

EDIT: Just noticed what forum this was in, do you mean albums in general or just rap/hip hop albums?

When Notorious the movie came out, my dad got the soundtrack. I was probably like 12 or 13 at the time. There was this one track i really loved, not even because of biggie, it was the people featured and It was Bone Thugs N Harmony. I listened to East 1999 Eternal after and since then they have been my favorites

Being that Eminem is one of my top artists, I'll share my discovery of The Slim Shady Lp.

I had been hearing a few cars go around blasting this retarded song or so I thought at the time "My name is". I thought this song was the end of rap, I couldn't get into it. I mean everywhere you went people were blasting it, black/white it didn't matter. This went on for months and I had even looked at the little video he put with it and I thought "Garbage". To make a long story short- One day, my boy Dave had me listen to his LP on New Years Eve leading into 2000, but the first track he played was "Rock Bottom" and I said OMFG..lol I was like why the heck didn't he come out with this first! Once I heard that track, I was like "Dude can actually rap" and the level of skill he had was mind-blowin at that time. I followed that up with "Bad meets Evil" and you already know how awesome that track is. So from that day on, I was and still am an Eminem fan. Let's just say when the Marshall Mathers LP came out around May 2000, I was at target first thing in the morning ready for the second greatest album of all time.

Welcome to the forum bro, nice post. I was like you at first, didn't rate My Name Is. The first track I liked of his was The Real Slim Shady (I would have been 10-11). Then I bought that single then got the album the month it came out. You would have to have been a kid then to understand how much of an effect that album had. Controversy galore, and of course then there wasn't really a successful white rapper. Beastie Boys did it I suppose but they were a group and quite Rock n Roll with it. You really did have to "be there" in my opinion to appreciate the impact Eminem had at that time. So many other white rappers started biting his style after that.

Wu Tangs 36 Chambers really got me into hip hop as a whole when I first heard it. I remember it so vividly, i was like 14 and mostly listened to reggae and old school rock, just never had an ear for hip hop. So anyway, I was chillin with my buddy and he was like you gotta hear this man!! We listened to the whole thing all in a row and my mind was blown. Instant fan after that moment, of Wu and hip hop in general.
