Alaska of Hangar 18 / Atoms Family
· best albums
- Andre3000 (OutKast) : The Love Below
hands down it was the best hip hop album last year
- Aesop Rock : Bazooka Tooth
Aes keeps getting more and more comfortable and his music keeps getting better. This was my favorite album of his.
- Clipse : Lord Willin
I dont even know if that was a 2003 release. Regardless I still played the hell out of it. It was a real complete album with maybe one skipable track.
-

Mars Volta : Deloused In The Comatorium
I love that fucking album.

· albums I listened to
- Mars Volta : Deloused In The Comatorium
Its infectious, it sounds like rush if they werent canadian and had carlos santana playing guitar
- Andre3000 (OutKast) : The Love Below
I usually skip like the first 4 songs and then its a great listen.
- Ghostface Killah : Iron Man
I'm a huge ghost fan. I kinda put this album away after supreme clientele came out. One night i was watching the education of Sonny Carson and heard all the classic quotes from the movie used on the album and I had to pull it out. Ghost is the best.
· best songs

Jay-Z : 99 Problems; Encore; Lucifer; My First Song; What More Can I Say; Public Service Announcement
these songs are jayz at his best. I love that shit. His flow is the fucking tightest in the game.

- C-Rayz Walz : 3 Card Molly
fucking up the icy man in front of everybody. Best song on C-Rayz' album.
· best beats
- OutKast : Ghetto Music
like bombs over bagdad on speed
- Aesop Rock & El-P : We're Famous
- pretty much any beat from the SA Smash album. that album as some of the best beats and hooks in years.
- "Lucifer" and "Encore" by Kanye West from Jay-Z's "The Black Album". heads are all caught up on "99 Problems" which is dope but those two beats hit it right.
