25 years ago today, Juice Crew subgroup @KGRFilms & @TheOriginalDJPolo released their 3rd & final album Live & Let Die under Cold Chillin’ Records. Produced by Sir Jinx & the Trcackmasters, this album features an even greater focus on hardcore gangsta & mafioso rap lyrics compared to the lyrical themes on the duo's previous albums & they’re much more graphic than ever before. Most of the songs feature vivid stories of some sort, many of them related to organized crime & violent street crime. There are also sex raps horrorcore stories & even some socio-political commentary similar to Public Enemy & Boogie Down Productions. The songs "Home Sweet Home", "Fuck U Man", & "Still Wanted Dead or Alive" act as respective sequels to the songs "Streets of New York", "Talk Like Sex", & "Wanted: Dead or Alive" from their previous album Wanted: Dead or Alive

25 years ago today, @ThePharcyde released their debut album Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde under @DeliciousVinyl. It was produced by J-Swift, who provides the album with a lush, jazzy soundscape through use of live instrumentation & sampling. He relied on a large number of samples by artists including James Brown, Donald Byrd, Sly & the Family Stone, The Meters, Quincy Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Roy Ayers & Marvin Gaye. Aside from the samples, Swift also provided piano, bass & rhodes on the album & fellow producer JMD provided drum arrangements. These upbeat key arrangements & quick-paced drum loops provide much of the backdrop for the group’s animated lyrical deliveries. The album's wacky storytelling & light-hearted playfulness provided an alternative to the pessimistic, hardcore hip hop that had ruled the hip hop scene at the time

19 years ago today, @DJQuik released his 4th album Rhythm-al-ism under Arista Records. Self-produced, Quik explained that "the name alone tells you what I was doing. I was mixing up rhythms. I was meshing R&B with & hip-hop & jazz. And a little bit of comedy". The end result being in my 2nd favorite album of his, with #1 being his debut Quik is the Name

19 years ago today, Wu-Tang Clan leader @RZA released his full-length solo debut Bobby Digital in Stereo. Almost entirely self-produced with the exception of King Tech doing “Airwaves” & “Love Jones” along with @INS_tagrams doing “Kiss of a Black Widow”, this was a huge departure from his previous efforts. It showcases a 16 or 17 keyboard-driven sound rather than samples to which RZA calls a “digital orchestra” & it tells the story of his hedonistic, fun-loving alter-ego Bobby Digital. To me personally, this album is horribly slept-on

9 years ago today, Kanye West released his 4th album 808s & Heartbreak under Roc-a-Fella Records & @DefJamRecords. Produced with @CubanSoze along with Jeff Bhasker & Plain Pat, the album in the wake of a several distressing personal events & it marked a major musical departure from Kanye’s previous hip hop albums. His mostly Auto-Tune sung lyrics explored themes of loss, alienated fame & heartache while the production abandoned conventional hip hop sounds in favor of a sparse, electronic sound that included prominent use of the titular Roland TR-808 drum machine. A lot of people (including myself) weren’t feeling this at the time of it’s release, but it‘s actually grown on me tremendously over the years to the point where I can safely call it a classic. Especially since it’s gone on to influence @KiDCuDi (who even has a couple songwriting credits on here), Frank Ocean, @ChildishGambino, @TheWeeknd & of course @ChampagnePapi

A year ago today, Regime member @TheRealTechN9ne released Godspeed as the 5th single off his 17th album The Storm under his own label @StrangeMusicInc in conjunction with @RBCRecords & @INgrooves. Produced by @MichaelSevenSummers, the beat is eerie-yet thunderous & Tech is pretty much talking about how he can't be stopped. There's also a bridge right before the 1st verse that makes fun of rappers like Desiigner & it’s somewhat funny

24 years ago today, former 213 member @SnoopDogg released his debut album Doggystyle under @DeathRowRecords & @Interscope. It was entirely produced by his mentor @DrDre, who continued to build up on the g-funk sound that made his solo debut The Chronic a classic. The lyrics depict drugs, alcohol, sex, & money as methods of escape from oppression, but they also show an underside of the "gangsta" lifestyle & the results of following this lifestyle. Despite some mixed criticism of the album initially upon its release, it earned recognition as one of the most significant albums of the 90’s as well as one of the most important hip-hop albums ever released. Much like The Chronic, this helped introduce g-funk to a mainstream audience & brought the West Coast forward as a dominant force earlier that decade

24 years ago today, @TheRealHieroCrew leader @DelHiero released his 2nd album No Need for Alarm under @ElektraRecords. It was a complete departure from his G-funk influenced debut I Wish My Brother George Was Here & had no assistance of his older cousin @IceCube. Primarily self-produced with the rest of his then-newly formed collective Hieroglyphics. This would be one of 3 classic "Hiero Golden Age" albums the collective would release to critical acclaim (including Souls of Mischief's debut 93 'til Infinity & as well as Casual's debut Fear Itself)

18 years ago today, former Firm leader @Nas released his 4th album Nastradamus under his now defunct @ColumbiaRecords imprint Ill Will Records. It was originally scheduled to be released as a follow-up album composed of material from recording sessions for his 3rd album I Am…, which came out 7 months prior. However due to bootlegging of the material, Nas recorded separate songs to in order for this to meet it’s release date. The end result being in what many (including Nas himself) rightfully consider to be his worst album
