43 minutes of beautiful, melodic, and brooding R&B duets. Every sample-based hip hop producer under the sun has worked with at least one of the infinite number of gorgeous instrumental segues on this album.

The Notorious B.I.G. Ready to Die
amazing... i don't understand how 'real' hip hop fans nowadays (like TheIllmatics) don't even bother to listen to a full Lil Wayne album and judge his entire career based on intentionally bad pop singles then call him "the worst rapper alive". honestly?

Diz Gibran Soon You'll Understand
Some nice laidback hip hop. Really digging the production, Moonshine has provided a soulful, jazzy background for Diz to prove himself as a worthwhile MC. The beats are what really make this worth a listen though.
Dr. Dre 2001
Drake So Far Gone
Drake Comeback Season
This is Drake, back when he'd cite Mos Def and Talib Kweli as influences, and when he'd work with a lot of J Dilla-esque beatsmiths. Some of his best tracks are here "Going In For Life", "Share", "Think Good Thoughts", "Closer".

It's fitting that a shitty sound off like "It's fitting that "Ether" and "One Mic," two of the most overrated hip-hop songs of all time, are from STILLmatic, one of the most overrated hip-hop albums of all time." comes from one of the shittiest sputnikmusic users OF ALL TIME.

Yung Lean Unknown Memory
Imagine Lil B if he was Swedish, heavily autotuned, putting on a fake Southern accent and working with a team of producers randomly mixing a bunch of synths and keys on a water damaged laptop. This is Unknown Memory.
