Re: i$e's Magical Music Megapost
At the end of the day, I likes what I likes. Regardless of dissenting opinions, popular or otherwise.
In my eyes, this album was fresh, especially at that time period. It didn't get over simply because pop radio played the piss out of 'In Da Club' and tracks were played multiple times a night on the club scene. It got over because it was dope. Hardcore rap fanatics wanted/recognized something new and the masses felt it too.
The lyrics were ingenious, beats and loops were phat, it maintained it's 'ghetto swag' despite the mainstream exposure and it was the background music to a lot of good memories. I tout it over a lot of critically acclaimed stuff.
I dislike Eminem so this was an alternative I could sink my teeth into.
You don't have to agree but I stand by the selection.
...his other stuff was lack luster though.
I love professional-wrestling.
