Doggystyle and Dogg food are so many levels above the rest. You could take the various soundtrack/compilation songs to make a holy trinity. “Who got some gangsta” is the quintessential dogg pound SONG for me. A top 5 is debatable
Dogg pound 2002
Dillinger and young gotti
Dead man walking...
Haha Napster. You got that right.
I got the tan cover head drama from some one on here (probably Codeine) and that shit made me feel like a real hip hop head getting an internet exclusive a year before it was ever released for real.
P-Folks was probably my favorite Siccmade affiliated album...
I’m going to say southern rap is really not you’re thing. Cuz this fuckin list...lol
I still think it’s cool you making these lists. I could talk rap all damn day.
The south has some rappers though, this deserves a re-do.
Xzibit in top 5 is undeniably an issue.
He’s a top caliber mc no doubt.
But outside of just skill there’s not another criterion he dominates that earns him that spot.
B-real is clearly the number 5 spot.
Hutch and frost coming close behind that. I don’t have a problem with ice t, or mc eiht...
i liked it. Insightful shit, funny stories, pop culture observations. He was a lot looser than on the last specials. Letting nuts hang now.
The gun control / mass shooter commentary was my favorite shit.
Artists want to experiment and take a different route / approach to keep THEMSELVES interested.
The art needs to feel fresh and challenging, and relevant to the moment they're living in, and therefore worth the time and money they spend.
Creativity is somewhat of fragile thing in that way...
