my bad...i love me some UGK...And yes Bun B has to be mentioned as one of the best ever
Yeah, that was the one! Black Sunday! Ok, here is my top 10 in no order: Black Sunday Cypress Hill Amerikkkas Most Wanted Ice Cube Super Tight UGK The Love Below OutKast (probably the most diverse and eclectic Hip Hop album ever) 36 Chambers Wu Tang Illmatic Nas The Chronic Dr Dre De La Soul is Dead De La Soul Midnight Marauders. Tribe Called Quest 2pacalypse 2pac Ready to Die Biggie I know, I cheated and put 11, but in the words of Riley Freeman, "Real ni**as don't follow rules". Lol!
I was Ravi g about them in the thread that created this thread. Bun B is top 5 imo
My fav Cypress Hill song
Found a great pic that Texas fans would appreciate while searching for the one I posted earlier:
Black Shipley, you must not have been following how this thread originated. We gave plenty of love to UGK . Check out the thread "It's the offseason, so I'll post it" and you see we didn't forget them.
"I don't hate you, I'm just not necessarily excited about your existence."
Yeah, my bad. I didn't know there was prior discussion about them on another thread. Looking at it now I realize why I never clicked on the thread... because who made the original post. Avoided it because of that. I'll check it out though. Just had to make sure they were mentioned here since I didn't know that they had been elsewhere. For some reason I've been listening to all their albums (and other stuff of course) for the past few months, so I felt compelled to say something! Haha.

I feel you bro. I thought it was funny that you were missing from this convo. If u have a moment read that thread to catch up and see how this convo evolved.
Black Shipley, now you need to post "Ain't nothing fu*king wit Texas" lol!

They're definitely in a league of their own. Ridin Dirty is such a great album
You like Slim Thug?
R.I.P. Pimp C
Why wouldn't I?
You sure that'll be okay with LonghornDoc?
He'll be ok. Besides, if we really wanted to piss them off I'd ask you to post Rass Kass' "Nature of the Treat" (and make sure you post the one with the lyrics) or B.I.B.L.E. lol!
Uptown Saturday Night is such a killer killer record. Some of the early People Under the Stairs stuff is crazy good and slept on too.
There was a lot of West Coast non gangster stuff that was so killer. I think a lot of people missed on the Beat Junkies as well.
Kelso named some good stuff too.
"Auferre, trucidare, rapere, falsis nominibus imperium; atque, ubi solitudinem faciunt, pacem appellant".
Yeah his stuff is awesome. That whole crew is really good. I hope they/he lives up to their potential.
Black Moon is good. There is also a crew called Black and Blue that has a great first record...
Don't forget about the first NWA record, that is a punk rock record as well....
What was the first hip hop you heard? I remember hearing Curtis Blow's "Basketball" when I was a kid, and I just totally freaked out!
I still think that "Runnin'" by the Pharcyde is my favorite cut though. It just has so much history for me / time/ place.
The J Dee / J.Dilla remix is kick ass too. Dilla doesn't nearly get enough love. In my opinion, he is the best / most talented beat maker/producer ever. Him, Premiere, Pete Rock.....
Also, I really dig the first three Massive Attack records. They are from the UK and are more laid back/soulful but damn......it is crazy crazy good.

Ok, time for everyone's top 10 rap songs of all time. Here is mine in no order:
Know the Ledge-Eric B and Rakim
T.R.O.Y.-Pete Rock and CL Smooth
Nature of the Threat-Rass Kass
Never Seen a Man Cry-Scarface
C.R.E.A.M.-Wu Tang Clan
Foe tha love of $-Bone Thugs-N-Harmony
Electric Relaxation-Tribe Called Quest
Stakes is High-De La Soul
So Many Tears-Tupac
First hip hop that I truly remember listening to was "5 minutes of Funk" by Whodini and this may not qualify as hip hop but I remember "Strange" by Cameo.
