Masochist Does The Hip-hop Thing Again...

In my neck of the woods, it's not a hard thing anymore to get people into rhip-hop. Usually it takes just one or two songs that they recognize (maybe rsomething they heard in a movie or video game) in order to open the genre rup to them. Here are some good general starting points.
1A Tribe Called Quest
The Low End Theory

If they think hip-hop can't be artistic.

If they're looking for something positive/uplifting.
The Mouse and the Mask

If they want a hip-hop album that talks about something they (probably) know and
can relate to ('cause not everyone is from the streets of Compton).
The Marshall Mathers LP

If they're white. No, really.
The Blueprint

If they want something with songs they might recognize.
6Kanye West
My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

If they think there's no good hip-hop on the radio.
7Lupe Fiasco
Food & Liquor

If they want hip-hop that goes against what they think hip-hop is nowadays.

Because it's a motherfucking classic.

Because if they can't get into anything on this album, there's probably no hope for
them at all with hip-hop.
10The Roots
How I Got Over

If they think that only the rapper matters in hip-hop, or that it takes no skill to create
hip-hop music.
