The 50 Most Important Indie Hip-Hop Albums

Friday, March 27th, 2015

 The 50 Most Important Indie Hip-Hop Albums

There have been several lists coming out lately on social media that inspired us to come up with this one. Shouts to FactMag.com and our homie, Alex from Steadybloggin.com, for the brain spark. Keep in mind that we’re talking about “indie” hip-hop here and because it has seen tremendous growth over the years, we’ve implemented a few filters to round out the list to the 50 most important ones.

No old-school releases are included, i.e. your early BDP type stuff. Nothing with major label distribution behind it. No singles, EPs, compilations or soundtracks (sorry Soundbombing). No subsidiary of major labels (think Relativity/Sony). No mixtapes, demos or out-the-trunk releases (sorry 40 water). We tried our best to make this independent-as-fuck. This order does NOT represent the greater release, rather the lasting impact it had on the artist/group, label, culture and hip-hop in general. Of course, this is the opinion of T.R.O.Y. and we welcome yours in the comments section.   –Philaflava

List after the jump…

Pete Rock “Delicious Vinyl 25th Anniversary Mix”

Monday, September 10th, 2012

Not sure how this mix has gone unnoticed for this long.

“The Stussy x Delicious Vinyl Collection celebrates the 25th Anniversary of the LA-based record label. The minor label started in the late 80s and became a major figure in the evolution of hip-hop through the early 90s with acts such as The Pharcyde, Masta Ace, Tone Loc, The Whoridas, Young MC and Brand New Heavies. They continue to maintain working relationships with these early artists and also support the next generation of musical talent including Dom Kennedy and Casey Veggies.”

Thanks to the King for the link. And check out the full line of Stussy x Delicious Vinyl shirts HERE.

MC Shan vs. Marley Marl

Sunday, January 15th, 2012

Shan sets the record straight on why he wasn’t on The Symphony. Marley’s response is below but he ain’t saying nothing really to dispute what Shan said. All I know is, Marley has had way too many shady dealings following him throughout his career. Not giving credit. Not paying artists. He is a legend so most people don’t care, but I bet K-Def has stories for days too. –Philaflava
