Don't Bogart These Joints: Some Good Tolks

Man I got a good idea for this next blog. You ready? A list of classic disks that, even after years of sub culture backlash, still remain as lively and fresh as they did when you first slit them out of their packaging. Basically, good records that remain good after years and years.

I can't finish this list, not at one go. I'll keep working on this blog man, but here are some I can think of in a minute.

These are records that bought the minute - err, stole the minute - they were released. They never leave your car's cd changer, and are always on your "Recently Played" list.

The Beatles - Abbey Road, Revolver, Let It Be and Pepper
Dr. Dre - The Chronic (and then Chronic 2001)
Guns N' Roses - Appetite for Destruction
Appetite for Destruction
with ATLiens and Stankonia

Nas - Illmatic
B.I.G - Ready To Die
Eminem's Marshall Mathers and Slim Shady LP's
Jay Z - Blueprint (people have SHIRTS with the cover on it)
Oasis's (What's The Story) Morning Glory? and Definitely Maybe
Definitely Maybe
The White Stripes - Elephant
The Strokes - Is This It
Big L - Lifestylez Ov Da Poor and Dangerous

Edits: Here's some more records, as suggested by you

2Pac - All Eyez On Me, 2Pacalypse Now, Me Against the World
Snoop's Doggystyle
Common BE and
Me Against the World
Bone Thugs - E.1999
Goodie Mob's Soul Food
Rakim and Eric B's Paid in Full
Paid in Full
Big Pun - Capital Punishment
OutKast - Aquemeni
Royce Da 5"9 - Death Is Certain
It Was Written
Nas - It Was Written
Joe Budden - Mood Muzik 2
Mobb Deep - Infamous

Thanks to my man Vinyl for digging though some old shit and finding disks like

eh yo taxali...the list makes a ton of sense but where are the tupac records man...resurrection, all eyes on me etc. are definate no-brainers as well...and oh yea, snoop's doggy style and some dr.dre stuff deserves to be up there as well...

I think that Common's last record BE is astounding, even better than ressurection. The Bone thugs album E.1999 has some of the best arrangement I have ever heard on a hip hop album. If your into southern hip hop Goodie Mob's album soul food is incredible. If you wanna start digging through classics, Rakim and Eric B's Paid in Full is probably the first real undisputed classic in rap history.
