It's solid, but I think you're missing a few good ones - and I'm not trying to knock you here, because I'm fairly good on my southern ****, even if my list didn't go down so well with Y!A... it's better than the criticism it received... Metal Quality ripped it to shreds because he disagreed with about 3 things and passed the whole thing off as a joke without giving it a second glance... but whatever... First of all props for including Fadanuf Fa Arybody - essential listening and probably one of Rap-A-Lot's most underestimated releases... and I love how you included a G-Side album even though I feel The One... Cohesive is their best to date... and Dirty (Alabama stand up) but why is Dead Prez at 69?! I think that album deserves better... and maybe Dwight Spitz or Art For Sale by Count Bass D would have been a nice inclusion as he's easily the south's most prolific and amiable producer/rapper + Mars Ill & Infectious Organisms deserve a mention too... agree with Trylemma on most points tbh... a rarity... I can't get over the lack of at least one Arrested Development album and I get that The D.O.C. was born in Dallas, but he's a west coast rapper at heart... would've liked to see The Foreign Exchange and Truth Universal on there and whabout Mystikal?! New Orleans best rapper by a mile, even if that's personal bias, because I'm a genuine fan... & no female rapper whatsoever?! Choice and Khia are probably the worst southern exports ever, but Stacy Epps The Awakening was great + no Missy Elliott?! fundamental flaw for me is the lack of oldschool ****... Arrested Development, Poison Clan, P.A., 5th Ward Boyz etc.... and a lack of general cohesiveness... this is just rambling on though... you've got nice albums on there, but I feel it's a bit scattershot... if you feel I'm being unreasonable, feel free to have a go at mine, which I'm going to drastically improve in the next week or two... and yes it falls apart after the top 100... but as I said, work in progress... BQ2: I'd be lying if I said I'd heard of all of them, but the vast majority... 90+ - I bullshit you not... oh yeah - Sol.Illaquists of Sound...

BQ: Great list and good looking out on 56, 22, 72, and 33. Some of these rappers and albums I've never even seen mentioned before by people on y/a Nappy Roots, K-Rino, Face Mob, and 33 Get ya Mind Correct is some of Paul Wall and Chamillionaire's best work before they got signed to the majors. I love 22 not many people know about Mojoe Classic Ghetto Soul or the group Mojoe, not even the people in my hometown know about how great this duo is and there from here if they were to blow up they'd be the southern version of Slum Village. BQ2: I've heard about 42 of these albums. Like someone else said you should of put some Z-Ro in there his discography is long and he has some really good underground southern albums, also E.S.G Ocean of Funk is a classic southern album.

I'm not sure how you can have No Mercy by T.I. and 0 Three 6 Mafia, Young Buck, 8Ball & MJG or Clipse albums. I'm not sure if Virginia is really considered the south though, but Memphis definitely is. It's like people completely forget about the classic albums from Tennessee. Even Kingpin Skinny Pimp's King Of Da Playaz Ball could have easily been top 20, and that's not even the best Three 6 Mafia affiliate album. I'm assuming you didn't listen to a lot of Memphis stuff before making this so if you haven't heard them you could try Three 6 Mafia-Mystic Stylez & The End 8Ball & MJG-Ridin High and Comin Out Hard Young Buck-Straight Outta Cashville & Buck The World Kingpin Skinny Pimp-King Of Da Playaz Ball & Skinny But Dangerous All of these would definitely be on a top 50 southern albums if I made one. It's good to see Texas getting recognized on here though. Usually people forget all the dopeness Texas has produced. Good list, I don't agree with most of the top choices since I don't get the hype about The CunninLynguists, but at least it's something different, and it wasn't all no name underground guys no one listens to. BQ2: I've heard 33 of them, so whatever that is in %

Nice list, alot of originality in it but i kinda agree with Madliberator about there not being any Memphis albums,which has some of the most hard hitting rap to ever come out of the south,like 3 6 and their affiliates. BQ:Pretty good BQ2:I've heard 42 of them,which is a little over half i guess.

I forget DOC is from Dallas, I'd still consider it a west coast album though. Honestly APOS is the only album on the QN5 label I've heard that has good replay value, ****** With Lattitude was really boring to me. You have my 2 favorite UGK albums on there so kudos. I've never wanted to get into Jeezy, but I guess I will later. I think a Rick Ross album should be up there. Just my random thoughts. BQ: 30/75 heard. Edit: #25 *Idlewild

Christy Christy
I like you Morbid, but this list is a piece of ****. You have Idlewild (or Idlewood) ahead of Southernplayalistic, only one Geto Boys album on the entire list, Still Standing way down at 66, Kno's solo and that wack Deacon and Shiesty Khrist album in your top 15 but 3 Cunninlynguists group albums nowhere to be found. I'm guessing you just started trying to get into southern hip hop about a month ago.

You've made some interesting picks. 500 Degreez and I Am Not A Human Being threw me off. I never pictured you as a Wayne fan. Also, at the end it seemed like ideas were running low due to you not wanting to overpopulate. Some of the ideas seemed far fetched like including the two Wayne albums and not Will Rap For Food. I like the originality though and I'm going to use this for recs lol.
