Yeah, I'll def expand, but put some recommendations up of your own for sure. Be interested to see what stuff you're into.
You want hip-hop recommendations too? Plenty of stuff that easily belong in the essential list. A surprise for me is no Illmatic
as it's most of the time (try 99%) the first album that shows up in "Must have hip-hop albums lists".
