Madvillainy is literally a perfect album.
MBDTF is a modern day classic.

Rap Genius introduced me to DOOM when I thought Tupac was the greatest rapper ever. I listened to Madvillainy and instantly fell in love with the production, and the witty rhymes of the lyrical mastermind.

I’ll post some pictures of my albums later when I can. I thought about making a thread like this a long time back but I saw that MyKro had a “your album collection” thread or something so I didn’t. Pio coming through.

Come on people, post your shieeet

Kinda blurry because it’s a bit dark, but

Jewel Cases

Rolling Papers, Deal Or No Deal, GKMC, Smokout Conversations (Signed), Hell Hath No Fury, and 36 Chambers.

Bought rolling papers because I actually really like it, people hate on wiz and call it a pop album but I still listen to it from time to time, Deal or No Deal is one of my favorite wiz projects and I’d never actually seen a physical copy of it so I had to cop it when I did, Hell Hath no fury for obvious reasons, GKMC because I thought kendrick delivered and I try to support albums I like, Smokeout Conversations I bought because you could get it autographed if you pre-ordered and it was only like 10 bucks, then 36 chambers for obv reasons.

DigiPaks and My Odd Future Stuff

OF Tape Vol.2, Channel Orange, BlackenedWhite, Numbers, Wolf, MBDTF, MOTM2, Indicud, WZRD

Hodgy’s my favorite OF Rapper so I really like mellowhype, I was trying to just get more of a collection going so I went ahead and bought the OF tape Vol.2 while I was at it. WOLF is still aoty for me, Channel orange I bought because I had some extra cash from some stuff I returned to amazon, MBDTF for obvious reasons and then Cudi is my all time favorite artist so I’m still working towards getting all his albums, I need MOTM1 and then I’m set. I’ve also got a rolling papers poster and a kid cudi canvas print in a poster frame but neither of them are currently hanging, I’ll probably post them when I hang them back up.

Am still annoyed that here in England we didn’t get the digipak of WMWTSO, all my other albums (pretty much only OF/Ye) are.

Debut albums of three of my favorite rappers

October 17th, 2013

Sorry for the bad quality but you can make out which albums are there. Late Registration, MBDTF and Graduation are Kanye’s three best album’s IMO, in that order. Obviously there’s no Graduation in the picture, but there’s also a lot of CDs I have that aren’t either.

Anyway, top left is Isolation by I/O, I think some of you might have listened to that and I figured I’d buy it because the dude’s independent and only just starting out really. I think it’s a great project really, and the mixtape game has worked for a lot of these new R&B artists (Weeknd, Frank, ect) so I wish him well. Top middle, obviously, is channel ORANGE, don’t think I need to go into too much detail as to why that’s there. The deluxe edition of Back to Black is on the bottom left and I really only bought this because I always liked Tears Dry on Their Own as a teenager and I really liked Cherry Wine when I heard it. I just really liked her style, which I guess is mostly down to her producers but her voice is great, to me anyway.

Bottom right is The Electric Lady which I just think is amazing. I did buy the Archandroid after hearing this but I honestly prefer this album to her first one. I actually got the dl for this from someone on RG, luckily, and was kind of shocked I’d been sleeping on something so good but I’d say it’s definitely worth it, as are all of these.

Okay. So, the thing at the top of the picture is The Master, a collection of Marvin Gaye’s greatest songs. It’s got like four discs and they’re all pretty great but Disc 3 has the best for me. It has most of What’s Going On? which I think is one of the best albums ever (I mean I think 5 of the others in this picture are classics by my standards) but it also has Let’s Get It On and Troubleman. The highlight of disc 3 has to be the live performance of Distant Lover just because of the quality, how great he sounds live. It just sounds amazing, and the crowd just screams as soon as he hits the first note of the song.

@Lucidity Haha, I think it was the week Janelle’s and The Weeknd’s album leaked and I made a thread titled “Sorry Lucidity” and I talked about how The Electric Lady was better. Someone else might’ve recommended it but i’m pretty sure it might’ve been me!

Bought these 2 CD’s today. The first one is Poor Righteous Teachers' Pure Poverty, their 2nd album. It’s used but in good condition, cost $7. Poly told me about a record shop in Brooklyn, so I peeped it. I’ve seen better, but it’s not bad. I was hoping they had PRT’s New World Order album but no dice. That’s the only one that I’m missing.

The 2nd album is Black Milk’s No Poison No Paradise, which dropped this past tuesday. I copped it at Best Buy, it was $11.99 but with a Reward Zone certificate, I got $5 off. I’ve been a Black Milk fan since Popular Demand dropped in 2007. I’ve met him and seen him live several times, with his band and as part of Random Axe (alongside Guilty Simpson & Sean Price). He’s a decent enough rapper but his true talent is producing. Although, I’ve felt that his production has been lacking a bit since the Random Axe album, but apparently at least part of the reason is because he’s been focusing on his engineering skills lately. From a quick listening of the album, I enjoyed what I was hearing and it’s interesting that he decided to do a sort of concept album. His albums are usually braggadocio exhibitions. The album artwork is dope too, has a psychedelic vibe to it. The beats aren’t as loud and anthemic as before. Seems like it was a good purchase overall.

So a month or two back, Rob Sonic decided to reprint two of his out of print albums on TheNine.com as well as personally sign them. I, having only heard a few tracks from him here and there decided to buy Sabotage Gigante because when i searched for a dl when I was broke I was unable to find out. Well 4 weeks passed and nothing came, eventually I went to twitter to ask him myself.
