Hip hop heads?

Today is your lucky day my friend.

The following album is widely considered to be the greatest hip hop album of all time

Nas - Illmatic

But, I will suggest some hip hop songs that I feel would more appeal to those not familiar with the genre

Atmosphere - Yesterday. I'd recommend sitting down and reading the lyrics whilst listening.

Sage Francis - The Best of Times

The Fugees - Fu Gee La

And for some songs by UK based artists

Rhyme Asylum - Poison Penmanship

Jehst - The return of the drifter

Braintax - Don't drag me in

You may hate it, but it's always worth a try :)

Let me know how you get on!

I enjoyed some hip hop from the late '80s to mid '90s, but lost interest in any new output by the end of the '90s. The following albums remain in my collection, and I still consider them to be excellent:

Tricks Of The Shade - The Goats
OG Original Gangster - Ice T
Sleeping With The Enemy, Guerrilla Funk - Paris
The Low End Theory - A Tribe Called Quest
Doggystyle- Snoop Dogg
It Takes A Thief - Coolio
Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) - Wu-Tang Clan
Jazzmatazz - Guru
Paul's Boutique - Beastie Boys
