These Hiero-affiliated guys are gonna be here soon, 30 year anniversary of the record. Del gets a shout-out at the end.
I covered my opinion on him. Marshall Mathers LP is when I probably started listening to whole albums, whereas it was just songs off slim shady lp or whatever the first one was (probably off Napster/scour/Kazaa, it was thr way then). The Eminem Show was great.... until everyone was listening to him all the sudden. Everything after I never connected with.What? No love for Slim Shady? I admit I don't care for most rap, but there has been some that I liked. I guess. KRS One comes to mind.
my favorite by digable planets:I'm always surprised when these Rap/Hip Hop appreciation threads show up that Digable Planets don't get mentioned. Witty, smart, proud and talented. Someone definitely flipped thru dad's jazz and soul records for things to sample - big bonus...
