Reasonable Doubt

The Big Picture

The Marshall Mathers LP

"Eminem's finest moment. The album has little flaws and shows the incredible wit and wordplay that have made him famous. The beats on this were well chosen and there really isn't a bad song on it."
Dare Iz A Darkside

"Although many point to Muddy Waters as Red's best work I feel this album beats it. The darkness and eerieness add to the humour and clever lines we always expect from Redman."
The Chronic

"Dre impressed many with this debut. The beats as always on a Dre cut were incredible and this let Snoop emerge into a Rap superstar. Classic liad-back G-Funk."
Doggy Style

"Snoop is yet another rapper who's debut album was their best by far. But the fact still remains that this is a great album with Snoop's now trademark smooth flow and classic G-Funk beats."
Straight Outta Compton

9 Lives

Paid In Full

"Rakim is the orginator who almost all of the rappers around today strived to be like and looked up to as youngsters. Street knowledge released through some of the best lyrics ever!"
The True Meaning

"Cormega is one of the best in the game. So under rated its not even funny. Raw Forever."
The Realness

"Cormega is one of the best in the game. So under rated its not even funny."
Stillmatic

"The closest Nas has come to Illmatic. One Mic, Rewind, You're Da Man and Ether will go down as classics. Apart from Braveheart Party the whole album is both deep and very listenable."
Black Star
Black Star
"Lyrics and depth rather than the superficial fake thugs talking about guns, drugs and bling bling that we hear so often these days. Get this if you want to know what true hip hop sounds like."
