Is 93 ‘Til Infinity A Top 50 Album of All-Time?

Wednesday, July 26th, 2017

A great question was asked today on the Philaflava message boardis 93 Til Infinity a top 50 hip-hop album of all-time? The answer is no.

This album is a personal favorite of mine. I have no problem labeling it a classic either. I also don’t think any of us can dispute the fact ‘93 Til Infinity is one of the greatest tracks — ever. You can’t argue with that. 1993-94 Hiero was some of the best shit ever. Casual dropped a classic (Fear Itself). Del dropped a classic (No Need For Alarm) and this album, that makes it a trifecta. Even Extra Pro was a pretty great! But that is really the point of this post and unfortunately, it’s coming at the expense of SoM. Many of you will be quick to say, sure it has to be. Some of you will say, maybe this isn’t top 50, but surely 60-75. Guess what? It’s might not even in the top 100. How fucking crazy is that? 93 Til Infinity is an amazing record. If we’re comparing it to any album (Kendrick or not) that came out in the last 5+ years, we’d probably say it’s better than all of them.

The 90s were crazy and every Tuesday a new classic dropped. Not a once-a-year thing, it would a few times a week thing. Think about that. To further prove the point, I have compiled a list of albums, many certified classics, but mostly albums that I feel rank higher than 93 ‘Til Infinity. My opinion, but if you look at the list, maybe you’ll agree. Keep in mind, this a favorite thing. If it were, 93 ‘Til Infinity would be chilling around the 30 mark. This is a list where the heart has no involvement whatsoever. The list is not in order and certainly I would opt to listen to 93 ‘Til Infinity over many of these listed. Certainly over any Eminem album, but again, that isn’t’ the point. It really is crazy because you start to realize just how many classics albums dropped between 1988-95. It adds up quickly as you can see.

So, is this album in your top 50? 75? 100?

Take It Personal Podcast (Ep 5: Respect The Architects)

Monday, February 13th, 2017

This is the first installment of several “Respect The Architects” episodes we’ll be doing. It’s important to not only remember, but respect the pioneers, the originators and the emcees who have influenced in hip-hop as we know it today. While shows like The Get Down or Hip-Hop Evolution have done a great job with the visual side of things, episode 5 is all about the audio. Our topic of the show is what emcee opened your eyes to hip-hop and made you hit that rewind button until it broke? Sit back, relax and thoroughly enjoy the sounds of LL Cool J, Big Daddy Kane, Public Enemy and Boogie Down Productions to name a few.
