  1. I was in Iraq in 03 from Jan-Aug and that Freeway joint got me through that deployment like you wouldn't believe! Glad to see ya'll acknowledged it. But i noticed Joe Budden debut didnt make it. figured it would

  2. I salute your service!

    Joe Budden's album was actually 21 on my list :P

    1. What about Dizzee Rascal Boy In The Corner?

  3. Good year. Plus Diary Of Alicia Keys for non-rap highlight.

    Some seriously good music in '03. Maybe the last great year w
    e had...

    Budden was weak as a whole but some good tracks. Focus!

  4. I know this is an old thread here, but my number 1 is The Last Emperor - Music, Magic, Myth.

  5. u people who beleive 50 cent and all that fake ass shit is hiphop are the reason why hiphop is dying ... f*cking fake asses who dunno shit about hiphop should shut the fuck up and not propagand , am offenced to see they placed foolish child's play ''artists'' in same pic square as the PREMIER and GURU ... you gotta learn to separate fake mc to real mc and btw , hip hop started dying in the 2k , give urselves a good f*cking smack in the face and try find out why ... if ur lucky , in 10 years u will have a clue

    1. *Sigh* the Ignorance here is just baffling.
