  1. My college suitemate used to blast the NWA album day in and day out… I grew to love it and to this day can still see a skinny asian guy rapping “So what about the bitch who got shot? Fuck her!
    You think I give a damn about a bitch? I ain’t a sucker!
    This is the autobiography of the E, and if you ever fuck with me
    You’ll get taken by a stupid dope brotha who will smother
    word to the motherfucker, straight outta Compton
    ” as he does his homework.

  2. Great list, do 100. Many of these are close to my heart as well, Love the fact you got the Kamikaze Hearts on here.

  3. Did you get the new Urge Overkill album yet? Released today (May 10th!) It’s fantastic, a bit like Exit The Dragon in some ways…

    1. yeah ive had it for a little bit. sadly, i havent given it a full solid listen yet, but everything ive heard ive dug quite a bit. will get into it sometime this week.
