I hade so many of these albums back then. I didn't think I was that into it but working at a record store I bought way more than I would have elsewise.

These days, it's probably Pharcyde.

yeah I had to think a sec the G Rap. it's more consistent than the Predator, but the Predator's high points are better than TLALD's high points

Very positive memories of Brand Nubian, EPMD, Kool G Rap, and FuSchick but it's probably a toss up between Predator and Bizarre Ride. I'm guessing Pharcyde runaway with this, so will go for Icecube.

Discovered the Showbiz & AG and Diamond D albums last year via the hip hop albums poll - both solid rather than inspirational but hugely enjoyable nonetheless. Would also consider Pharcyde, Pete Rock, Eric B & Rakim, Paris, Disposables, Kool G, Ice Cube and Gang Starr. The Predator has the most nostalgia appeal but I'm not sure it's the strongest here.

Spice 1 - Spice 1
DJ Quik – Way 2 Fonky
Gang Starr - Daily Operation

any of those four, hard to decide. Thats my least favorite Quik but I still love it.

1992 was a weird year in general, even if you look at rock and other genres, a lot of the big hits were off gamechangers that dropped in '91, and most of the albums that were actually released in '92 were not as significant as what those artists did immediately before or after those albums

bizarre ride is the only one of these that really resonates with me. i like predator, funky man, compton's most wanted, but can leave those albums in a pinch. bizarre ride is a really nice group at their undisputed peak. i don't think we can say that any of these other albums were peak albums (although i am a big predator fan, more so than amerikkka's most wanted).

I love that dense, tough, clenched funk production you get on the Ice Cube, Paris and Da Lench Mob albums - very '92. It's like Ice Cube's scowl translated into music.

well this is the end of the era right - '92 is the year of the Gilbert O'Sullivan lawsuit, and production styles shift over to a less sample-based aesthetic - which Dre was out ahead of, right? or not? heads can correct me but that's my understanding, there's a big shift underway in '92 toward basically making the stuff from scratch instead of building from parts

the law was definitely impacting the music at that point but a pretty huge amount of popular rap was sample-driven up until maybe 1998

― Victory Goon (some dude), Tuesday, October 30, 2012 6:25 AM Bookmark Flag

Yeah, but 88-92 rap had 12 samples in a song whereas 93-98 rap had one or two and maybe a sneaky uncleared one.

rev otm - samples still there but for pomo poseurs like myself who got ALOT out of prince paul/hank shocklee sample density this era felt like a definite downturn, there's a reason ppl overreacted to dj shadow. voted pharcyde but immediately wished i'd voted predator instead, a dip from amerikkka and death certificate but that record was huge and had that weird bigger pop impact, feels like the year hip-hop finally truly broke thru completely on radio, maybe some combo of soundscan and 2L2Q flopping.

I used to have three fourths of these on tape. I heard Das EFX and Redman on baskspin radio the other day and was surprised how nice they sounded through my trucks speakers. Showbiz & A.G's best album didn't come till 97 or 98 with Full Scale. For awhile it seemed like everyone in school was singing Pocket Full Of Stones.

Redman, Gang Starr, Das EFX, DJ Quik, Pharcyde ... I have gone for Whut? Thee Album, fuck me what a vintage year and '93 was even better. Not really dug much of Redman post Dare Iz A Darkside, loved bits of Muddy Waters though. I thought The Pharcyde's follow up to Bizarre Ride was very disappointing as well.

I grew up an hour from Port Arthur and an hour and a half from Houston, UGK were huge and the Houston scene. There was a radio station call The Box out of Houston that played local artists before they were known outside of the area. I used to have tapes I recorded from the Box late shows.

JacobSanders, Wednesday, 31 October 2012 16:35 (2 years ago) Permalink

lol Bizarre Ride I

I like Pharcyde better than Predator because there's way to compare it to a much better previous album.

(I've said before that) I wasn't down with Death Certificate when I was a kid, the a) homophobia b) racism c) slackness towards women made me take it back to the shop and exchange for something else.

Also because it has no "Gangsta Fairytale 2" on it.

This is a feeble charge to lay against an album that has When Will They Shoot on it, let alone Wicked and Check Yo Self with the OG beat and Good Day (remember how remarkable it was at the time before it became the most-played Cube song ever). Not to mention We Had To Tear This Muthafucka Up and Who Got The Camera and Say Hi and...

sug night (sic), Wednesday, 31 October 2012 21:47 (2 years ago) Permalink

Yeah I just listened to the Predator again and it really isn't bad, but Death Certificate just feels like a better album to me. I was like 15 when it came out and it didn't seem any worse than any of the other stuff I was into at the time content-wise and I was dumbly oblivious to a lot of it anyway. That and a lot of other records do make me cringe a bit now.

I just never liked Dirty Mack and Now I Gotta Wet Cha that much, and the sudden and obvious Das EFX and Cypress Hill influences kind of bugged me too. And nothing on it - even Good Day - comes close to Steady Mobbin', Alive on Arrival, or My Summer Vacation.

joygoat, Wednesday, 31 October 2012 22:07 (2 years ago) Permalink

the remix of Good Day w/the Staples/Mayfield sample may be my favorite Cube song ever but even still Death Certificate just hangs together better, warts and all. the skits/interludes on Predator are annoying, and while his bandwagon-jumping songs aren't bad in and of themselves they are kind of glaring

Force Boxman (Shakey Mo Collier), Wednesday, 31 October 2012 22:11 (2 years ago) Permalink

Yeah I just listened to the Predator again and it really isn't bad, but Death Certificate just feels like a better album to me.

I bought the re-release later and love it to bits, of course (bcz now I hate women, gooks and gays) (and many of the songs were still fully intact in my head from the week I'd had it the first time), but I have no problem at all seeing The Predator as a great album separate from its predecessors (it's no Amerikkka's Most Wanted either)

^ also a great example of what a great rapper Cube was in his imperial period - halfway through "shirt" he slows down a tiny bit, juuust lagging behind the beat for those next three and a half syllables; this provides a subtle enough emphasis that the listener will subconsciously note it, and make the callback connection on the reveal a few lines later, AND! ALSO! once you know the scenario for future listens, reads as the narrator physically losing step without even being conscious of it himself yet.

it's "gap teeth" and it's a reference to Luther Campbell and thank you for showing us that there is indeed a demand for Rap Genius's services
