Shoegaze has Loveless, but that’s kind of different.
To me, Illmatic is definitely the best rap album of it’s time and really of the mid 90s, but the best albums of today are just as good in different ways. Yeah, there are some guys that are fully going after that Illmatic sound, but for the most part Hip Hop is constantly changing and expanding in exciting ways. If “Illmatic” is synonymous with hip hop perfection, then I know a couple albums that could use it as a subtitle.
When I take a shit I listen to Coldplay. They are good shitting music.
Wait… People are mad at Drake for clearing this up and being real about it? Dude is totally right. They should have moved his cover story to a different time instead of what they did. I’m not a fan of dude at all, but he’s not being illogical. They wasted his time, and when you’re big like him, time is lots of money.
Favorite track is always changing, but for now it’s Last Call. The punchlines, the long ass story, everything about it is brilliant.
Favorite line’s gotta be from Through the Wire:
Unbreakable, what you thought, they’d call me Mr. Glass?
Look back on my life like the Ghost of Christmas Past
Toys “R” Us where I used to spend that Christmas cash
There’s not really a punch through all of it but I always like that part.
These lists are just stupid. Everyone should stop making them.
Don’t forget The College Dropout :D
Kanye, Fleet Foxes, Frank Ocean, TV On the Radio, Wilco, Flying Lotus. Das what I’m looking forward to.
