I'd call N.W.A. gangsta, but not Public Enemy.

Public Enemy and NWA are hardcore rap, but Public Enemy isn't gangsta rap. At least that's what they always say. And you know about them.

This thread exists dozens of times over, but while this one is still alive, I'll recommend the Lifesavas. They're the anti-gangsta.

MF Doom. Actually check out Viktor Vaughn's Vaudeville Villain which I think is Dooms best effort to date.

Best Doom avatar I've seen on MX, let me just say. Mine used to be just the Madvillain cover without the words.

And I agree on your choice of albums too, though the King Geedorah record might be more accessible and is still pretty bumpin.

Thanks, it's the cover of Madvillain's Curls & All Caps 12". Like you I just removed the writing.
