Pre 90's Classic Or Not Albums........

StewStew Rap Music Is My ReligionHTTRPosts: 52,208 Regulator
Aight so we only have a few pre 90's albums that are in the vault....

Paid In Full
No One Can Do It Better
It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back
Straight Outta Compton

This is probably going to be difficult cause I know we dont have a lot of posters that are 30+, hell Im 30 and havnt heard most of the 80's albums, so what I want yall to do for those that know any better is to throw some albums out that you think should be put up for vote to go into the vault. We're just about done with most of the post "Golden Era" albums so lets see what we can get outta of this.

    Here's some more I thought of over the weekend

    42. Grip It On That Other Level - The Geto Boys (1989)
    43. All Hail the Queen - Queen Latifah (1989)
    44. Life Is...Too $hort (1988)
    45. Greatest Messages - Grandmaster Flash and the Furious 5 (1984)
    46. Ego Trip - Kurtis Blow (1984)
    47. Got To Be Tough - MC Shy D (1987)
    48. Comin Correct in 88 - MC Shy D (1988)
    49. Ride the Rhythm - Chill Rob G (1989)
    50 In Control Vol 1. - Marley Marl (1988)


    That's 50 albums. I guess you could call it a "Top 50 80s Rap album list". Truth be told some of the southern and West Coast albums likeToo Short, 2 Live Crew and MC Shy D are albums that I didn't listen to growing up but I was aware of them at the time and I knew they were getting a regional buzz even though it wasn't getting play in my neck of the woods.

    Someday I'll give a brief review of each album.
