So you don't like the album because of one song? Did you even listen to the other tracks? Yeah celebrate isn't the best song on the album but I think the other songs make up for it.

Oh. I love it though. It's the first album I bought in full in my life. I usually only buy a few songs off an album but I like all of Commons album except for 1 or 2 songs.

I got a few suggestions:

 

Earl Sweatshirt - Earl

Any Wu tang clan album

Nas - Illmatic

Jay-Z - Reasonable doubt

Common - The dreamer, The believer

The game -  The Documentary

GZA - Liquid Swords

J. Cole - Cole World

Magestik Legend - The Great Escape

Nottz - You need this music

 

This is just a random recommendation, some albums are classic hip hop albums some are recent good albums and some are from underground hip hop artists who have stayed true to hip hop focusing on the lyricism

 

post #546 of 637

Also Uk hip hop is pretty good recommendations are: 

 

Klashnekoff - back to the sagas

Rodney P - The Nice Up

Chemo - The Stomach Of the Mountain

Kyza

Cyrus Malachi - Ancient Future

Triple Darkness - Anthema

Doc Brown - Citizen Smith

Most Lowkey Albums

 

That list should get you started

post #547 of 637

These groups/artists don't really utilize real instruments, but they utilize beautiful, jazzy samples in their songs and excellent and creative lyricism. I listed the group/artist and the recommended albums in parentheses. 

 

Common's second album Resurrection, with the greatest hip hop song ever IMO "I Used to Love H.E.R."

De La Soul (Buhloone Mind State, Stakes is High)

A Tribe Called Quest (The Low End Theory, Midnight Marauders)

Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth (Mecca & the Soul Brother, The Main Ingredient)

The Pharcyde (Bizarre Ride II: The Pharcyde)

Any thing with a cult following will be overrated by the obsessed fans. While i also think they rely on shock and gimmicks i still see most members being miles a head creative wise over a lot of rappers.

 

Blu & Exile make beautiful music.

post #554 of 637

Indeed, too bad Blu seems to be obsessed with releasing horrible (sound quality wise) sounding music since that Jesus thingy of his. Odd Future might be overrated by some, but are still one of the more interesting groups out there imo.

post #555 of 637

The Diary - Scarface

Enter the Wu-Tang Clan - Wu-Tang Clan

Paid in Full - Eric B & Rakim (IMO>>Illmatic)

The Chronic - Dr Dre

Accepted Eclectic - Aceyalone

Blazing Arrow - Blackalicious

The Low End Theory - A Tribe Called Quest

Liquid Swordz - GZA

 

 

All wonderful wonderful albums
