Paint House Gang: fair point but then generally hip hop today is nowhere near as good as the best stuff from the 90s....
for recent stuff,
Marco Polo And Torae - Double Barrel from last year was pretty dope
Clipse - hell hath no fury (which has already been mentioned here) is one of the best hip hop albums i've heard in the last few years. perfect coke dealer rap. want to hear the new album but read mixed reviews of it....
checked out Monkey Barz and enjoyed it
was listening to 'the infamous' the other day and it struck me how negative and bleak that album is the whole way through. the only song thats not totally dark sounding is the one with Q-tip on and even thats called 'drink away the pain'! anyone have any recommendations for hip hop records which are similarly dark, negative and bleak sounding?
