Greetings all! As some of you may know, my good friend and co-host of the “Bring Tha Noize” podcast Scott Hoyer and I recently had a discussion on the best albums of the 90s. Both of us put together a list of what we each considered the 25 best albums of that decade; I’ll be sharing this list with you all in the next few days. Looking back on that decade some 20 or so years later, I was surprised with how many rap albums made my list. I suspect that when most of us think of the 90s we think of Nirvana, Pearl Jam and the grunge scene that ushered out the age of the “hair band.” Yet the 90s were a period of time in which hip-hop/rap music truly established itself as a genre of music that would appeal to the masses. With that, let’s get started shall we?
