I think the first hip hop album I ever owned was..

My brother gave it to me, before that I just listened whatever was on the radio.

The first rap album I got and loved was either Madvillainy or The Cool, I can't remember which I got first.

What got you into hiphop for the first time in your life?

For me, what got me into "hiphop" was honestly Will Smith 'Willenium'. Feel free to laugh, I still do too... however, I don't regret that- because without it I wouldn't have transitioned into the genre, and I wouldn't be where I am today (since I'm constantly improving/discovering new additions for my taste).

I remember, it's 8th grade, and I want to look into this whole "rap" thing, but had NOOO clue where to start. So, I asked for a Will Smith CD because I knew the one song from the movie 'Wild Wild West'. I remember getting made fun of, and deciding I should look into stuff a little more and buy my next album after some research. A bit later I had my sister pick up Dr. Dre's '2001'- and I haven't looked back.

I hid it from my parents- partially due to the chron on the cover, but also because it was the first time I listened to music that had cussing in it.

Since that day it has become my favorite genre and I can say I've come a long way. I still have that Will Smith CD, but I think it's been gathering dust since it hasn't been spun since 8th grade

What about you kind ladies and gents?
That's awesome!
I totally would just Flip the booklet so that the album cover no longer faces the cover to prevent my parents from seeing the parental advisory sticker/logo. Got caught a few times, they made me return some CDs to the store which was pretty lame.
I recently got into hip-hop. I've mostly been into punk and stoner rock pretty much for ever. The artist the really opened up this genre for me was Sage Francis about 3 years ago. One of my co-workers was playing his most recent album. I liked it so much that I obtained all the music by him that I could find.

First rap I ever listened to was Will Smiths Big Willy Style CD back in middle school.. Then I got Willenium too.

Didn't listen to rap again til college. Sophomore year I got an apartment with this kid I met freshman year. We were chillin on our balcony smokin some herb and he put Nas's Illmatic CD on. I was blown away, I'd never heard rap like that before. So I just started jamming to a bunch of old rap music like Wu and Biggie and a ton of other non-radio MCs.

First rapper who I listened to was 50 Cent, back when he was in the charts all the time. The first album I bought was 2pac's Loyal to the Game, on the back of the single Ghetto Gospel which I loved. That opened the doorways to loads of more artists in the world of hip-hop.

Unfornately Lil Wayne was my introduction to Hip-Hop. Soon after I floated away from mainstream and started listening to BB's, BIG, Tupac, and some underground beasts.

YEAH, they were the first big concert i went to see with my friends. we were 13 and felt sooo grown up!

by the end of the alphabet his mic was covered in spit, haha

My first introduction to Hip-Hop was due to Eminem... Yes, it's mainstream, it was pretty cool to listen to him. After that was 50 Cent, not much better. And then I began listening to some serious artists, as 2Pac and so on
