Recommend me a less well known hip-hop album

Doesnt have to be too obscure, but some that you might not usually find in the top tens. Im in the mood for a bit of hiphop atm

to get things going I can recommend these favourites:
Marley Marl in Control Vol 1 -
classic 88 showcase album with rappers:
Big Daddy Kane
Biz Markie
Kool G Rap
Craig G
Heavy D & the Boyz
Masta Ace
MC Shan
Roxanne Shanté
Tragedy

Leaders of the New School - T.I.M.E. (The Inner Mind's Eye)
reviewers didnt like it but it has a faithful cult following - much better than the well received debut i think - and Busta adds the icing to the cake...1993

Lords of The Underground - Here Come the Lords
kind of similar sound to LONS I think - that classic 93 feel

Saw the title, and was coming on to recommend Roxane Shante's 'Bad Sister', but I see you've already got her in your list!
 

Chemical needs

I (ashamedly only just) discovered Mr Scruff - Vibrate, which is a most excellent hip hop track.

Have you heard Bo Marley - Masters of the Universe?

Can you tell I'm not big on hip-hop? :D

i dont know whats well known.

pep love - ascension, side c
eyedea & abilities
rhyme asylum (UK) - state of lunacy (i went off them after they lost their stoupe-esque producer)
 

Private Storm

Smell The Glove
I couldn't get enough of Paris - "The Devil Made me do it" when I was 15. Having a good laugh at myself now, geeky white middle class banging out a "militant Black nationalist rapper" album :D


And I also don't know if it's less well known, sorry, but I've never come across anyone else who was into him. Perhaps the chess club wasn't as cool as I 1st thought.

It was all about Sleeping With The Enemy for me :cool:

I don't know if it is under known but none of my fellow hip hop heads had heard before I came in, spinning the disc like a don: Nate Dogg 'Ghetto Preacher'





a true g-funk classic imo
