    I'm not entirely sure how everyone around here feels about hip hop.
    But I'm a bit of a fan.

    I'm trying to build a decent classic collection and an underground collection.
    So if I could get your top five must-have albums in these categories, that would be most rad.



    Alternately...if anyone here is well versed in blues or jazz at all
    (like old coltrane stuff...or maybe muddy waters blues like...)
    I would love to hear your top fives there as well.

    Sad that you think about that. HipHop is so much more, it's about expressing your feelings with beats.

    Oh, and a question for the TS:
    Can I post Artists form now too? And do I NEED to post the albums?

    A few artists I can remember at the moment:
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Kanye West (Kanye, yeah, his first two albums were so soulful, great beats.)
    Kid Cudi
    B.o.B. (A new guy makes some new kind of Hiphop)
    Common
    Mos. Def
    Eminem

    The same feelings over and over? HipHop sounds the same in every song.

    That's what I said, it's sad that you think about Hiphop like this. Bet you only listened to 50 Cent and Snoop Dogg?

    Don't get me wrong. I also don't like the song where they sing so gangsta-ish.

    Hip-hop from 1986 to 1996, to me this is the golden age of this genre.
