Nick and I added our top 100 picks into a playlist then took turns whittling the list down to 50. The last 10 tracks were really tough to pick out, and we got into a few mini-fights over a couple tracks.
About halfway through I decided to get this site together as a fun way to present it, and tada.
What tracks did we miss? What tracks are shit?
Hey Earl: Love this and I'm sure I'd love more. Totally understand the need to focus the list down, but any chance we could get that top ~200 too?
Best I can do is top 100 :)
I've made a huge playlist with all the greatest hiphop. Mainly old school beats. I've handpicked 841 tracks for the list. And still actively adds new tracks. I've always enjoyed the hiphop from the 90's to '05. https://open.spotify.com/user/1110918398/playlist/6FTmrfcuH5yrufE3wbTgdH
How have i never heard of King Geedorah before?
Oh man, you're in for a treat, the whole album is phenomenal!
King Geedorah = MF Doom
Aka Daniel Dumile aka Zev Love X
I did my best to match it exactly to what you guys have up. Great collection.
So much hip-hop love in this thread. Its like christmas.

This is beyond dope, great list.
Earl & Nick - I made a Beats version of your excellent playlist here - https://listen.beatsmusic.com/playlists/pl314376388276781312
Credited the URL in the playlist info as well.
Awesome, just had someone ask for a Beats link. Forwarding them here!
Looks great! I think I need to make it a policy to listen to Regulators every morning in bed before I do ANYTHING else.
Another track that got cut when we started cropping the list down to 50.
What, no Pete Rock? With or without CL Smooth? No Big L either?
Here's my collection: http://open.spotify.com/user/11128793800/playlist/1FuUEgiHJYA3av3tZiCmN4
Niccce. Such a good list there.
The World is Yours - Nas - Illmatic... I saw you got NY State of Mind... and as simple as it is, Odd Future - Oldie, is pretty gold, just repetitive with a bunch of verses lol.
You should add a request button or add Still Fly - Big Tymers
That was one of the tracks that got left on the cutting room floor :(
