    That album cover makes me vomit!

    You know something i've never listened to geto boys album before.

    I've listened to scarface, though it was mostly because i head jay-z and beanie sigel on the guess who's back track. The fix was a album i enjoyed listening to even though i was 14 or 15 at the year it came out (the music i listened to at that time was a bit immature, if thats the word for it).

    i forgot in many ways we are a generation apart SB!

    Paris was one of my favorites back in the day, as political as Public Enemy but not as well known.

    This is class too... - PARIS - The Devil made me do it - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R0fWY-0tkTM

    You've gotta get yourself some Geto Boys mate - Big Daddy Kane too...

    I've completely lost track of hip hop these days - but Nas' Illmatic and Snoop's Doggystyle will always be present in my collection.

    People talk about music piracy - but is it not the case that the quality of music (generally) these days is a bit crap and hence people aren't willing to pay for mediocre stuff?

    I remember copying the abovementioned albums from a mate in school, and then buying a pirated copy from a dodgy lad....and then buying a legitimate CD as I absolutely loved the tracks(!). I now shamefully have the respected Anniversary CDs :D
