Let’s Take a Trip back in Time to When People Cared About the Top Albums… because they didn’t suck

1992 was a simpler time in Hip hop. Rappers had their own styles. When you heard EPMD, Eric B. and Rakim or any of the other killer rappers, you didn’t have to look to see who’s song it was, you just knew instantly.

That’s what is missing from Hip Hop today. Most modern rappers sound the same. There are a few exceptions like Kendrick Lamar and Travis Scott, but they are few and far between.
