  4. 12. Cannibal Ox - The Cold Vein

    :| !!!

    Birds of the same feather flock together
    Congested on a majestic street corner
    That's a short time goal for most of 'em
    Cuz most of 'em
    Would rather expand their wings and hover over greater things
    That's what we call inspired flight

  5. Yeah. Listen to Hate In Yo Eyes. My sheeeit.

  6. what about the chronic 2001

  7. That dropped in 1999, homie.... Lay off the chronic. :D

  8. where is jay dee's welcome 2 detroit. this was & still is one of the hottest albums of 2001

  9. Cold Vein is easily one of the best albums of the 21st century.
    Your top 3 should have looked like this:
    1. Cold Vein
    2. Blueprint
    3. Labor Days

  10. Blueprint over Stillmatic? Smh. A Jay-Z fanboy wrote this. Switch that shit up and put the real number one album of 2001 at number one. Stillmatic. Then you got Jada at 14 after The Liks? Sticky Fingaz at 19? You know nothing about hip-hop.

  11. Wow..Cormega??? This I what's wrong with hip hop/rap: how do u include mega and omit ja rule's pain is love? Because of a hate trend or hip hop vs. Rap bs cuz that record dominated radio AND outsold EVERYBODY. TOP 5 AT THE LEAST FOR THAT YEAR. Just a good record. Catch up

  12. Tough choice with Jay-Z & Nas. Possibly a joint 1st place? I prefer the beats on Jay-Z's album but Nas rules with the lyrics.....mash-up anyone? Not sure I'd have had Jay's "Unplugged" in their aswell.

  13. Keep up the excellent work , I read few articles on this site and I think that your web blog is real interesting and Power to the People of excellent information.
