Fucking hell.I know its all opinion but any serious Hip-Hop fan is going to laugh at this list unless you throw Aquamini and ATLiens in there.Top 20 at least.

the low end theory is way over rated, their first album is way better
and you forgot EPMD Strictly Business

EPMD Strictly Business wasn't in the 90's

I knew i would take some heat for not including ATLiens

I am surprised Ice T, Origianl Gangsta made your list. I am even more surprised Brand Nubian's, In God We Trust did not make your list.

I didn't read it super closely- so these may be on there- but neither digable planets? First L.O.N.S.? Heavy Rhyme Experience? Ed OG? MF Doom? Yes- have to agree on outkast

But word- all my other favorites are on here.

How can you not list Gang Starr's "Moment of Truth?" I'd have it #2 behind only Illmatic. MOT was Premier's masterpiece.

You couldn't put Big L in the top 115? Whats up with that? Lifestylez Ov Da Poor And Dangerous would probably be in the top 10, for me.

You guys are taking me down memory lane with this one. I got ur back with the Outkast argument but i gotta admit that Big L's Lifestyles.... has got to be on the top 50 at least! Only 2 joints i never copped was the Chi Ali and Poor Righteous Teachers. Plus i gotta say that Killarmy album is garbage. i'll send anyone who wants my copy for Free!

Where's Black on Both Sides, Blackstar, and Funcrusher Plus? Three classics that spoke to the freeing auspice of the indie label before they were everywhere.
