Again, that doesn't mean I don't like parts or specific songs on other albums... these ones are just more complete and easy to listen to without, say, skipping 5 consecutive tracks that should've just never been included...
Nice - I was gonna suggest ATLiens aswell. If you haven't, check out:
Soul Food or Still Standing by Goodie Mob
Beat Rhymes and Life - Tribe Called Quest
I just recently heard Lupe Fiasco's album - not bad at all.
Lupe is very talented no doubt but it gets annoying how people anoint him the next savior of hip-hop. He's good but not THAT good.
I want to hear a second release from him before I put Lupe anywhere.
That being said, his album was fantastic.
where im from, alot of people havent even heard of him, so i find him vastly underrated. went to his show at my school too, very good performance. he really seems to love his craft.
I have no doubt that he adores everything he does.
That being said, I can see him becoming either one of the great emcees or a flameout. I predict somewhere in the middle, around LL Cool J.
tough to compare him to ll...i can see him following the paths of talib, mos def, or common...hes very similar to them in that regard too..
