Best Underground Hip Hop/ Rap AlbumsTheZarn
The Top Ten
The whole U.S. government was criticized in this album, he pissed off george bush, john Ashcroft, Dick Cheney, and more.
"Freedom of speech", "The point of no return", "The cause of death"
WOW! This was the first word that went through my head by the end of the album. This immediately put you back into the mindstate after you finished with De La Soul Is Dead or Aquemini, which was there’s something immensely special about this album… but what exactly is it?
The answer: EVERYTHING. This album resulted in DOOM‘s status as an underground legend and also solidified Madlib‘s title as Hip Hop production’s version of Albert Einstein: bizarre yet brilliant. This became a match like we never thought before, and this completely caught us off guard. We knew this would be quite the anticipated project, but when we pushed play, we had zero idea the magic that would ensue.
This album redefined the underground and became the underground treasure that we know and love today. While we wait with Detox-like anticipation for the sequel, we can rest assured that music like this can be defined by one word: ART.
The greatest underground album out there.
I just love this album. Tobacco road is the best song I have ever heard!
A very aggressive and odd take on hip hop, the album presents the interesting concept of hip hop extremism, which is more scary than admirable, and MC Ride's screaming vocals on tracks such as 'Takyon' and 'Spread Eagle Cross The Block' match this theme perfectly.
