Blackout Top News

Complex created a special list of 50 moments in history “when great rappers made terrible fucking albums”. Above is the cover of Dr.Dre’s first LP after he left Death Row Records. Dr. Dre Presents the Aftermath (1996) comes in as #3 on the list.

Take a look through the discography of just about any great rapper and you’re bound to find at least one album that just doesn’t belong. It’s the black sheep of the bunch (word to Black Sheep who, just in case you were wondering, do appear on this list!) and the one album that makes us wonder what in the world some of our favorite MCs of all-time were thinking. From LL Cool J and Rakim to Jay-Z and Nas, these are The 50 Worst Rap Album Fails.

Check out the whole list here.

One of the very few classic albums (in my ears) in these past years in hip hop is getting re-released for it’s 5th anniversary.

On September 19, 2006, Lupe Fiasco’s acclaimed debut album, Food & Liquor, hit stores and secured his place as a hip-hop artist to pay attention to for years to come. Now, five years later, Lupe has a platinum-selling single and a No. 1 Billboard Top 200 chart-topping album under his belt, but he still hasn’t forgotten about his inaugural project. To celebrate the fifth anniversary of Food & Liquor, the album has been given a special re-release that includes commemorative cover art, three bonus tracks and the music videos for “Daydreamin'” and ” I Gotcha.” Although the official anniversary isn’t until next Monday, the LP is available now on iTunes.
