I like homecoming.

The John Legend version's better. The hook's still pretty sweet, but the verses are so boring...

American Gangster is actually my favourite Jay-Z album. Although, the only others I own are Reasonable Doubt and The Black Album.

His rapping seems about par with his earlier works, and the production feels much lusher and more soulful somehow.

But I do think it would have been better for his legacy if he had stayed retired. Besides, the guy has very limited subject matter and so many of his songs are going over the same sorta stuff.

I thought American Gangster was okay, had some perks. But to say better than The Black Album and Reasonable Doubt? damnn

I think Wu-Tang has the capacity to release more quality rap, but apart from that I agree with everything else on the list.

I think we need a "25 Rappers the World Should Hear" list happening...any takers?

I could add something like that to my Rap Intro. By the way, anyone want to help with that?

I would love to see this list. I have an appreciation for rap and use to listen to it a lot. I just got tired of hearing every rapper with 1 album out talking about how he is the best in the game. I really prefer a rapper who is the whole package, like Dr. Dre. Someone who can go in the studio by themselves and come out with hit tracks.

Dalek - Absense
Surreal and the Sound Providers - Lost Indeed
The Strange Fruit Project - Soul Travelin'

I wish I knew more obscure rap artists, but most I got from here to begin with. =)

I meant with the whole thing, could you say I'm looking for help in the first post of the Intro thread. I know all those albums, I can handle that part.
