TOP 15 FAVORITE ALBUMS OF ALL TIME
#11 : Illmatic
Favorite Tracks: Represent, One Love, The World Is Yours, NY State Of Mind
Illmatic is widely considered the greatest rap album of all time. It’s definitely top 4, I don’t think it’s the best, however I wouldn’t criticize songs for saying it is. This album is track after track of greatness, and yes there is only 10 songs, which is imo part of what makes it great. It doesn’t bombard a bunch of unnecessary tracks, it’s not to long, not to short. It’s perfect, and with that being said, there isn’t a single track here thats bad or a track that I dislike. The entire album is a musical experience, he has many different subjects in here and each track flows into the next beautifully. This honestly is one of those goto albums I have when I wanna listen to something besides my playlist, I can turn this on in any mode tbh. The only thing that sucks about this album... is that it’s his first, he never topped it, even tho it was written is extremely close, but as a full LP this wins. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
When it comes to loving someone. What qualitys do you look for in them weather it be physical looks or personality?
I've always loved woman of all colors, so race never mattered. All though I like them either Black or Spanish mainly. Short, intelligent, and having a great since of humor as well. One thatll love me unconditionally for me and one that is willing to work and build a family with me. As I've gotten older though i really want a African American woman. The more I see them the more im in awe. Black woman slept on lol Black is beautiful ❤

Album Request #10
M M . . . F O O D
By: MF DOOM
The villainous MF DOOM delivers on this not particularly villainous food themed album. This album was produced during the high point MF DOOM's discography, 2003-2004, around the time that he released such classic albums as “Madvillainy”, “Vaudeville Villain”, and “Take Me to Your Leader”.
Doom is particularly less villainous and more down to earth on this project. He raps less about dastardly deeds and his villainous power and raps more about relatable, everyday stuff. Personally, I prefer doom when he’s rapping about his evil, eccentric doings, but this project is an interesting listen and kind of refreshing.
There's a few nice features and Madlib produces a track. The production is silly, immature and ridiculous, but we also get a bit of Doom's backstory which is interesting, but personally I feel like it erases some of the mystery of the character. Another minor problem I have with this is that the production voice samples gets a little bit annoying on a few tracks, I would of liked if instead of having a few tracks loaded with voice samples, having a few instrumental snippets like on “Madvillainy”. -
Favorite Tracks: Beef Rap, Hoe Cakes, Potholderz, One Beer, Deep Friend Frenz, Poo-Put Platter, Kon Karne, Guinnesses, Kon Queso, Rapp Snitch Knishes, Vomitspit, Kookies
Least Favorite: Fig Leaf Bi-Carbonate

This as an analysis of The College Dropout by Kanye West, and one of my top 3 favorite hip hop albums ever:
As Ye himself said about the name of this record, "The name of my album is...The College Dropout. All that's saying is make your own decisions. Don't let society tell you what to do." Kanye clearly followed his own advice, as in a genre dominated by lyrics about violence, thug life, crime, money, and sex, Kanye's fresh perspectives regarding society were a breath of fresh air. Ye raps about the pitfalls of consumerism, a broken education system, a lack of morality and faith, obsession with physical appearance, and his car accident. On We Don't Care, Kanye wrote "a song for the kids" about drug dealing. The line on this song that always stands out to me is "DCFS, some of them dyslexic. Their favorite 50 Cent song 12 questions." All Falls Down is a scathing indictment on society's greed and the lack of morality that comes along with this unhealthy ambition. Kanye has never attacked consumerism so viciously. As Ye says, "The people highest up got the lowest self-esteem. The prettiest people do the ugliest things, for the road to riches and diamond rings." On Jesus Walks, Ye criticized a lack of morality that he has witnessed both in the hood and as a star, as he talks about Jesus's value to him. Never Let Me Down follows a similar theme, with J. Ivy spitting an insanely poetic verse. The New Workout Plan is a catchy song which pokes fun at women trying to work out and get a hot body so that they can "pull a rapper, an NBA player, man, at least a dude with a car." The School Spirit skits and Lil Jimmy are powerful bits which describe the education system as useless and not really beneficial in a society controlled by connections and corruption. Two Words is about the hood, violence, racism, and the struggle to attain success from that position. On the classic Through The Wire, Ye describes his accident which resulted in his jaw being wired shut and threatened to end his career before it could really begin.
