hahaha Dave called you out one greatest ever gangster rap album listicle. Wasn't me. Though I do agree with him. De La Soul is borderline R&B, how are you going to compare that to Tupac?

Not really sure you can compare Wu Tang, Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, The Roots and Mobb Deep (lol) to a solo artist like 2 Pac.

Nas has illmatic and that was pretty much it.

Whereas Tupac had Me Against The World and All Eyez On Me.

I thought the thread was about albums, not solo/group dynamics? It shouldn't matter what entity produced the album. I'm also not sure we segued into what is the best gangster rap album either? Weaksauce poured all over this from a great height, with a side order of bedwetting.

Honestly, I never really gave rap bands too much attention... use to pick out their best ofs and was sorted. You gotta be having a laugh if you think fucking Mobb Deep put out anything that remotely even touches the greatness that was All Eyez On Me. Things Fall Apart was a good shout in fairness millsy.

What's your take on using the term weaksauce, rhousedog?

You watching 4 mins of a random korean girl rave dance in front of a bunch of bewildered school children is weaksauce, dermo.

As is your face.

Although someone will probably say Dre is so much more than gangster rap as well, which I suppose I wouldn't disagree with.

Dre is like the madonna of gangster rap. Absolutely classic albums in the beginning of his career, decent albums followed catering to the pop masses, then one absolute beast of an album with 2001 and the we can forget the rest once he started pimping headphones.

His work with eminem was commendable too. The marshall mathers LP is another one that should be on my shortlist.

Oooh... I should add Atliens to my shortlist of rap albums. That I have on vinyl, mainly so I could play wheelz of steel on turntables as some sort of hipster party trick.

Actually a reasonable shout. A strong case could be made for it being the best gangster rap album ever. Although I'd probably put it Efil4zaggin, The Chronic and Jay-Z's Blueprint above it.

The Chronic, maybe. That being said, All Eyez on Me is a double disc and there isn't one filler on there.

Blueprint not so much - never understood the fascination with Jigga. Some gems here and there but there's no way I could listen to a whole album of him. He's got that talking style of rap, kinda like Kanye that's weaksauce if you ask me.

I'd probably get some hate for this, but it was a tough call between Cypress Hill - Black Sunday, Snoop Doggy Dog - Doggystyle, Beastie Boys - Ill Communication and NWA - Straight Outta Compton.

But still, just on the back of how many times I heard All Eyez On Me in middle/highschool along with it getting constant play time at drink ups at various house parties I attend and still sounding as fresh as ever... it sits on top. Gonna have to pick it up on vinyl one of these days.

Wouldn't be surprised if they're banking on Sasha for their big hitter of 2016 with this sort of 'comeback' gusto.

Little do they know Uncle John has quite clearly taken over the mantle of epic 'location' mixes.

I believe in LVG though. Have a feeling there will be results this year.

Daft Punk - Daft Punk or maybe Alive 2007, it's a toss up.

Yoshiesques and Renaissance Masters Ibiza are <Smallman>supoib though.

This. I rinsed the fuck out of GU Moscow too back in the good ol days.

I thought Moscow was a great release for people who were looking to get started on prog. It was borderline pop prog, for the time. If you listen to it now, it's pretty 1 dimensional and the programming is pretty naff. Yoshiesques came out just before time and I kinda gave it the skip, might give it a listen sometime soon.

I'm not going to lie though, I think Deep Dish were relevant for the era. I have a ton of Yoshitoshi releases on vinyl, moscow sort of popped my cherry and they were decent the few times I saw them live. All went waay downhill with Flash Dance and everything that came after that. I know a ton of the techno heads love the ground Dubfire walks on now, but I find him to be monotonous.

This is yet another example of the nanny state.  I will do what the fuck I like in my own coupe, thank you very much. 

I smoke in the Jag with my kids in the back all the time.   Of course I take precautions, ensuring that the drivers windows is open and smoke/ash is tipped outside. The kids have never once told me that they are uncomfortable with this arrangement.  So fuck you.

lol. They get a go on the trampoline, a bottle of coke and a packet of Salt 'n' Shake each when you get to the pub too.

lol.

This seems like a great idea though, i'm a heavy smoker and i think it's deplorable for an adult to be smoking in the same room as a child, let alone a car.

Was sort of disappointed that this wasn't your "over the hill" thread Dave.

I listen to War on Drugs when I want my Springsteen fix.

I happened upon the "Bitches" thread before it got deleted mono, you scoundrel.

I just want to make clear, I'm not some yank frat boy that refers to women as "bitches", as you had alluded.



Hey man.  I was surprised that thread was deleted TBH.  It was supposed to be a riff no the fact that you may have a penchant for trannys.  No offence meant fella!

I found the tranny part amusing, to be fair. Had a bit of a giggle.

Was kinda surprised it got deleted as well, didn't really find it offensive... but it was kinda sweet being protected by Hannu, BMM and possibly Uncle John. wink
