Better yet a Chi-Ali comeback a la the X-Raided & Shyne “technology”.
9. D-Nice - Call Me D-Nice
I never thought it would happen, but people have forgotten what to call this dude.
8. Nice & Smooth - Nice & Smooth
All true hip hoppers feel a strange ironic giddiness as we celebrate the all-time classic lyrical faux pas: "Ay yo Dizzy Gillespie plays the sax!"
7. Special Ed - Youngest in Charge AND Legal
“I Got It Made” contains the flyest dishwasher detergent reference there will ever be!!! I’m buying Cascade for life off of Ed’s co-sign.
6. Nine - Nine Livez
Wutcha want? A reissue #$@!
5. Saafir - Boxcar Sessions
Stop being a “Light Sleeper” on this offbeat classic — a lyrical predecessor to the bizarro-genius of artists like Madlib.
4. Umcs - Fruits of Nature
I can totally slip “Blue Cheese” into my son’s playlist of children’s music.
3. The Coup - Kill My Landlord
