I still wonder to this day if 2pac and Biggie would have ended up making amends?
2pac just seemed too intense and focused to give it up though, so I don't know...
Doubt it. Hell, if they never died i don't think Pac would've been big much longer. He was too unstable to have a nice, steady run on the top. Dude is kinda like Beanie Sigel n Chief Keef, in the sense that none of em had any idea how to act in the industry (altho Pac wasn't mobbin like Chief Keef, n he DEFINITELY wasn't mobbin like Beans). B.I.G., i could see having a long career on top. Who knows, he mighta ended up bein where Jay-Z is now, havin the most longevity in hip-hop history.

LOL @ Duets. That was one of the most laughable albums ever. Isn't there actually a song where the only contribution from Biggie is him consistently saying "UH" throughout the song? Hahahahahahahahahah.
I know this may sound crazy but am I the only one here who honestly fucks with Sosa, Reese, Fat Trel and the rest of GBE?
I understand trap and hype music is looked down upon but I geniunely enjoy most of Chief Keef's music. Obviously I enjoy it for what it is. I certainly don't listen for the lyrics but I really enjoy beats and punch lines.
A couple weeks ago in the R&B thread, LBGetBack asked us what was the best 1-2 punch of songs of an R&B album, so I was just curious what do you guys think for hip-hop albums?
For me, I take The World is Yours/Memory Lane from Illmatic over any other.
There's Halftime between those two songs you mentioned.
As for me, I love the opening 3 songs to Straight Outta Compton. Title track, Fuck tha Police and Gangsta Gangsta. Love Geto Boys' albums too, so you can take any of them (It Ain't Shit/Crooked Officer from Till Death Do Us Part, Assassins/Do It Like a G.O. from self-titled or Chuckie/Mind Playing Tricks from We Can't Be Stopped).
And of course, Kool G Rap's Road to the Riches. Like SOC, there's three top notch tracks opening the album.
