FULLY agree with 4 of 5 of those to the point that they would all be in my top 20 without a doubt. Snoop can do one though :P

I quite dislike Snoop and most of his albums are trash. But.......

 

Doggy style album is by far, far the most played rap album in my collection and one of a few where you don't skip. And was big influence for the West coast scene. But Snoop himself can go eat a dick, as they say!🤣

I don't think I own any Snoop at all, although if I were to put on any album it would be Doggy.

Oh yeah forgot about Jurassic 5 they were awesome!

 

This is the best or second best intro to any album imo. Snoop one.

 

 

Followed by the Westside connection Bow Down!

Tough question.

 

For me there is only one then the rest. Something that transcended hip hop itself. That is the Wu Tang Clan. The RZA created a whole cultural movement. The characters, the art, the lyrics....and no one, no one had ever heard grimey beats like that ever before. And the references to the old Kung Fu films and martial arts is like an inner child wet dream for me. If I had to pick one I'll give kudos to RZA for the vision and commitment at such a young age, and I also love his voice and tempo. Extremely well self educated, can create different personas such Bobby Digital and imo has the best rap line ever.

 

"Grow like a fetus with no hands and feet to complete us
And we return like Jesus when the whole world need us"….....

 

After the Wu Tang there's quite a few. Not that these were the best rappers technically or lyrically just ones I liked.

 

2.Guru

3.Krs One

4.Snoop

5. N to the A to the S TY, they call me nasty Nas!

 

Great answer! Thanks Mista Aytch.
There's so many to choose from, I remember someone once asking me and I really struggled, there's perhaps 10 that I absolutely love.
KRS-One is one gifted mofo, I love his technical skills with rhyming and his booming voice - and that he peppers his rhymes with an african accent in some of his raps.
Love Guru, and Gang Starr, wasn't one of the bands that I sought in my collection but do absolutely love:code of the streets, an all time great tune imo.
Love the sound of his voice, it just has the right pitch,tone,flow, feel.
Also, it's the way the words meet with the beats, so, for a rap tune to strike a chord with me, it's really got to have the music/melody and beats and the rappers flow/style/chanting in relation to those big beats, which is why I love things like 'new jack hustler' by Ice T, and 'Amerikkas most wanted' by Ice Cube, 'don't sweat the technigue' by Rakim, 'sound of da police' by KRS, 'rebel without a pause' by Chuck D and his mates.

For me, the sound of a rappers voice is really important in the general listen-ability of the song, Guru, Chuck D, krs, Ice cube and Ice T, Rakim (eric b & rakim)  The D.O.C/ eazy E,   all have that voice that I find agreeable, believable, masculine, flowing and genuine.  As well as technically flawless - not so much Eazy E, his strengths for me were his pitch, lyrics, melody,beats,production and most importantly - a general plausibility - a 'proper' ex-street gangster 'Dogg'

Snoop Dogg - not so much,  something not right about him to me, fake gangster, pimp ho manufactured slimeball.  Him and eminem...

So, here's my 5 faves:

1)       Krs-One
2)      Ice Cube
3)      Ice T
4)     Rakim
5)     Chuck D

 

(really struggled with these), there's so many I could place in the top 5 too, Grandmaster Melle Mell has that masculine flowing voice, Q-tip from Tribe called Quest, Dres or Mista Lawnge from Black sheep, and of course, B-real from Cypress hill, I love his Nasal funky vocal style of rapping.
so many gifted vocalists...  (& bands)

 

Thanks for your comments MrH,  @TheConsultant  What's your favourites?

Quite honestly, outside of Guru in spot number 1 I cannot form a top 20 let alone top 5. Guru/Gang Starr got me in to hip hop. I followed anything Premier did and anything Guru did and it spiralled from there.


as a few have mentioned KRS One he did a collaboration with Poor Righteous Teachers who I also recommend.

Great choices mate very similar to mine, (well, first two on your list) 
I honestly couldn't choose between KRS and Ice cube as I love cubes 'even - more' aggressive lyrics and style, I also think cubes beats and vocal flow is possibly even better than KRS's ?    His beats and melodies  - especially from Amerikkas most wanted album (I'm thinking of: the nigga y'luv to hate) and predator (We had to tear this motherfucker up)  were first class...

Love Eazy E - glad he's in the list - I didn't like leaving him out of the top five for me, love his voice and I think he was also the 'real-deal' too,  and the D.O.C. and MC Mello did some great tunes too...  

Nice one mate...

Yes it was tough to leave EZ out of my list. I grew to like KRS One more over time, I don't think his voice is so easy to listen to, but his technical skill is very good as are his lyrics and he's against the New World Order and talks out about it a lot, so yeah, put him in.......

 

Like Ice cube, my fave line from him which always cracks me up "So chickity-check yo' self before you wreck yo' self...... 'Cause big dicks up yo' ass is bad for ya health.."🤣

yeah it does! I personally prefer more laidback hip hop for everyday listening but a tune is a tune. 😆
 



I assume you (this thread) have seen Hip Hop Evolution on Netflix? Well worth a watch if not.

I enjoyed that a lot, but it was a double edged sword, enjoyable track but now I want to get blazed and its been a minute.

I know of People Under the Stairs, but will have to check out their albums a little more thoroughly as that one seems to have slipped by.

some more laidback hip hop
