There are more than a couple good albums on this list and a few are personal faves of mine. That Akinyele album was one of best in ’93. He’s got crazy punch lines for days. Of course, Masta Ace’s album was ridiculous, too. If you want beats, listen to Primo get busy on Livin’ Proof. The production was so good, he could have gotten Dikembe Mutumbo to rhyme with Dap and Melachi and it would have still been in heavy rotation. The Odd Squad album is just hilarious. I think Devin the Dude was in that group. The only one I’ve never heard is the Convicts album, which I’ll be listening to on my way to New Orleans this week.
