preemo list

DJ Premier presents his top 20 albums of the past year. Here’s a few words from the man himself:

Just in case y’all forgot, I base my list on:

1) Beats selection
2) Lyrics and content that make sense
3) Flows and wordplay and your voice
4) I don’t care how many records you sold and how much your record was played on commercial radio, I live hip hop culture and I respect my pioneers that allowed me to do hip hop as a career
5) Concepts and overall body of making a full LP including the sequence of how your LP flows is so important when I pop it in my sound system

I still judge listening to music on either a boom box or driving in my ride, no iPods and shit. I stick to tradition of how hip hop was played when it made an impact on my life.

As I say every year, if you don’t like my list, fuck it make your own!

One note I will make: I meant to list the Game’s “Jesus Piece” in my list and it was an oversight so I won’t change this list because of my mistake. I still wanted to make a note of it being that I liked his album and I’m still bumpin it in the ride.

Let the hate begin…

Hit continue reading to check the list.

100_best_guest_verses_ofalltime

The guest verse holds a legendary level of importance in hip-hop. It’s often through featured appearances that new stars are minted and current ones reassert their dominance. The spirits of competition and collaboration are both essential to rap music, and on no occasion are they more at play than during a guest verse.

Over the years, we’ve witnessed no shortage of excellence features. Nearly 20 years ago, AZ earned a career from his scene-stealing efforts on Illmatic. Flash forward to the turn of the most recent decade and you have Nicki Minaj doing the same on G.O.O.D. Fridays standout, “Monster.” Then there are moments like Jay-Z, at the top of his game, owning comrade Memphis Bleek’s “Is That Your Chick?” Quite simply, it’s always exciting to hear a talent shine outside of the confines and comfort of their own solo work.

After some careful consideration, we’ve come up with a list that highlights hip-hop’s finest guest appearances ever. Remember the first time you heard Eminem on “Forgot About Dre”? We’re talking about moments like that. Here’s to rap’s commitment to rewind-worthy features. These are the 50 Best Guest Verses of All Time.

Peep the list HERE.
