I love how melodic Heroes in the City of Dope is.

Badlands is one of my favorite songs, period. It's my go-to when I'm having a shit day and need to spit bars fast and hard in the middle of traffic. I always imagine it's an ode to Tucson.

That wasn't what I expected. Then again, I haven't listened to a lot of hip hop for years.

Heh--that's a really good one.  I'm glad listened again--lot's of imagery in that.  Earlier, the one i remember really grabbing me was Trains and Planes.  Maybe that repetitive melody hypnotized me.

Why hasn't anyone mentioned Cypress Hill?

Most likely because after the first album they drifted into self parody and nu metal.

Because ICP is better?

2nding A Tribe Called Quest for 90s vibe
Adding: The Pharcyde - Bizarre Ride to the Pharcyde album (2nd once not so much)
           Digable Planets - Reachin'     
           The Roots - looooonnnnnnnggggg before they were the Jimmy Fallon House Band (tm) I saw them in a tent in 1994.  Favorites are probably 'From The Ground Up' EP and 'Phrenology'.

Also this guy?

Dude, Pharcyde was awesome. I liked Labcabincalifornia too but Bizzarre Ride was definitely the best.

Yeah. Roots are/were brilliant.

Agreed, Labcabincalifornia was ok but Bizarre Ride was way beyond that. Got to see them live in 1995..ahh...good times.

Have you seen this?

And while we are fueling the nostalgia, I just discovered this recently:

https://soundcloud.com/jessica-rosales/gummy-soul-bizarre-tribe-a

It's the ATCQ/Pharcyde mashup. I found the full album on youtube a few weeks back but angry lawyers at Sony have been..well...angry. Enjoy it while you can find it!
