I tried but it turns out despite rumours of "keeping it real" Nas no longer talks to anyone unless they are rich like him

How about Straight Outta Compton by N.W.A.? I always thought that was a classic but haven't seen much of that mentioned.

How about...
The Chronic- Dr. Dre
ATLiens- Outkast
Ready to Die- Notorious B.I.G.
Eternal 1999- BTNH
Marshall Mathers LP- Eminem

Those are 5 biggies from different parts of the country, I think you would enjoy them all.

That's a good list. Bone Thugs don't get enough mention.

A Tribe Called Quest - People's Instictive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm

Why you should start here: This album still sounds like nothing else in hip-hop today. Super smooth beats and shockingly conscious / humble lyrics. It's an album about self-reliance and individuality, and how it can be balanced by depending on the right people with the right state of mind.



Nas - Illmatic

Why you should start here: It's hip-hop's most concise recording - no filler, no skits, no gimmicks - but also its most seminal. Instead of finger pointing, Nas is cool and reflective, smoothly spitting rhymes about living with adversity at every corner. Its production and its style is unmatched, really. And that's no snob talk.

Ghostface Killah - Supreme Clientele

Why you should start here: Get high and listen to this beast, you'll get why I picked it.



Jay Dee J Dilla - Donuts

Why you should start here: Yeah, it's not really truly hip-hop thanks to each joint being instrumental, but still. When I want to explain the energy, the soul, and the magic of hip-hop to people, I point them to this album. Each instrumental is made up of samples, some barely untouched and others unrecognizable. It's alive from beginning to end, and if you skip it you're a fool.



Madvillain - Madvillainy

Why you should start here: The album comes and goes quickly, thanks to most songs being at the 2 minute mark. It's about 46 minutes long, so it's one of modern hip-hop's most concise statements, and it's entertaining as hell. Fat beats, hilarious rhymes, and an attitude that's completely their own. It's short length (relatively) also means you'll have an easier time getting through it on your first couple listens.



Happy listening!

Madvillainy has slipped in my esteem lately (from best to just very good) but I don't think I will ever stop loving Accordion. I will love that hypnotic beat til the day I die.

Plus it has the line "get more cheese than doritos, cheetos, or fritos", which I like.
