    There needs to be more consideration given to the fact that with 2001 Dre made Rap very literally the new Easy Listening.

    Hmmm. Okay, in no order.

    Cage
    Cam'ron
    Danny Brown (Yeah, he fucking rose that far for me)
    Rakim
    The D.O.C. (This is an involved one; technically, he's the ghostwriter for Eazy and Dre on a lot of the N.W.A. records, as well as every Dre verse on Chronic. But the 1st solo album is an undeniable classic)
    Wiley
    Ol' Dirty Bastard
    Too Poetic
    LL Cool J
    Kool Keith

    Even after we established that I’m fatally trapped in time and pulled a train with my Dad in the South, still no answer from Luke about why he hates ‘Hell on Earth’...

    they perfected the sound on the infamous, tried to replicate it on every other album subsequently but never captured it. it became plodding and cartoonish, one-dimensional. the subtlety stripped out. perhaps q-tip was the magic ingredient as much as it pains me to say it.

    Yes to that apart from Hell on Earth which is not better than the Infamous but harder, purer, crystalline. It’s a fine album, a decent and logical sequel. The others are all shit.

    Prodigy fell off after Hell on Earth, presumably at least partly due to health issues. And also for some reason Havoc stopped producing so much of their tunes, and also declined.

    Haven't listened to HOEarth in years but I remember Extortion, Still Shining and the title track all being good.

    Still some classics dotted about 'USA (aight then)' 'Thug Muzik'... 'Outta Control' sort of although that was Dre and 50 really

    Havoc was/is an alcoholic. Most of their issues seemed to stem from that. But what a producer, and also for a second rapper, very underrated. Did Pete Rock or Showbiz step up as well? No way! At least Premier never really tried to.

    I obviously have a soft spot for Havoc and Guru and their liquid demons.
