i know i sort of support piracy by doing this, but in my own sick mind, im also promoting better music, so here you go:
snoop dogg - tha blue carpet treatment
nas - hip hop is dead
-like it, learning to like it more
young jeezy - the inspiration
-"luv it", but probably has a short shelf-life... it IS jeezy. but its also the greatest combination of thumping, resonant beats and absolute coon-sense ive heard in a minute... that timbaland song is the thing of legend...
at first i might have gone out on a limb and said that jeezy made a better album than nas, but then i came to my senses after hip hop is dead marinated in my head for a bit.
