i'll update this as i bother to finish this or find the links to some of these songs. excuse my rambles i like writing about things i like :3

leave a comment if you like or hate any of these... i wanna hear your opinion too


J Dilla - Donuts (2006)

31 tracks, 31 treasures... this album is what made me fall in love with hip hop. before i heard don't cry i was one of those people who thought all hip hop was "mumble rap" but thanks to this beauty i was able to open myself up to the genre, which led me to discovering artists i would never have discovered otherwise.

this album also changed my life in the way that it made me see the true beauty of sampling (reusing an existing recording to make something new). the techniques dilla uses throughout this album are amazing and are the biggest testament to his contributions to hip hop. you can hear him in many of his contemporaries' works (such as a tribe called quest, de la soul, and the pharcyde) and you can still hear his influence in lo-fi hip hop today. it's as if his spirit was infused into his music.

my favorite song(s) from this album: don't cry

Tatsuro Yamashita - Ride on Time (1980)

now this isnt on any streaming services due to tats not being a big fan of em, but you should be able to find this album pretty easily online. and i recommend you do it fast. this album is on youtube for like a week before msj promotions the record association of japan gets it taken down.

the thing is that this album is SOOOO GOOD... its city pop right before its peak in the mid 1980s. it carries some jazz influences from tatsuro's earlier work but its way closer to city pop than anything else.

my favorite song(s) from this album: ride on timesilent screamer

Tatsuro Yamashita - For You (1982)

now THIS is prime city pop... i would even say this album is city pop itself. this album couldnt be described as anything BUT city pop. its a bit of a rollercoaster, including emotional ballads and more energetic tracks, but imo that just means you can pull out any song for just about any occasion

wanna slow dance w your partner??? pull out some morning glory! goin to a party?? put on some sparkle! chillin w the gang??? how bout some love talkin

what im tryna get across is that this is a good ass album and you should listen to it before it gets taken down

my favorite song(s) from this album: sparklemusic bookmorning glorylove talkin' (honey it's you)

Kalapana - Kalapana (1975)

i was put onto kalapana by my dad and so far im loving it. this album is nice and soft, something you could listen to on a slow drive or just sitting outside watching the sky. the songs feature enchanting guitar backing the great mackey feary's (rest in peace) vocals... and those two combine to form a most exquisite emotional experience

one complaint that i have about this album is that all of the songs are too short to really settle in... like goddammit nightbird isnt even 3 minutes long

my favorite song(s) from this album: what do i donightbird

Michael Jackson - Off the Wall (1979)

no words could do this album justice... its the first of three legendary albums produced by quincy jones (the other two being thriller in 1982 and bad in '87) and it was his breakout album following his already successful career as a member of the jackson 5. to me, this album symbolizes his growth as both an artist and as a person, as it is a musical and thematic major departure from the motown sound of his youth, as if through the music he's proclaiming "look, i'm all grown up now!".

but who knows. i'm just yapping and copying parts of the wikipedia article. hell i havent even listened to the whole album yet. why dont you go hear for yourself :3

my favorite song(s) from this album: off the wallrock with youdon't stop 'til you get enough

Michael Jackson - Thriller (1982)

im not even gonna say anything... i mean its THRILLER for gods sake

my favorite song(s) from this album: baby be minehuman naturep.y.t.

Nujabes - Luv(sic) Hexalogy (2015)

this album is what i would recommend to someone just discovering nujabes... i feel this album is a showcase of nujabes' skills while leaving an appetite for some more. it features shing02 rapping over some calm beats produced by guess who

my favorite song(s) from this album: part 1part 2part 3

Yabujin - FLASH DESIRE (2019)

this a good introduction to yabujin i think... got that early 2000s internet feel (i wouldnt know cause i was born in 2008)

the songs are really short and the whole project isn't even 20 minutes long but regardless its pleasant to listen to

look idk ive been working on this for several hours i'll elaborate later

my favorite song(s) from this album: ANGEL WITTA KNIFEDRUGS IN HER ROOM

Bone Thugs-n-Harmony - E. 1999 Eternal (1995)

GOOD NEWS YALL!!!! ive officially received my “talking about bone thugs-n-harmony’s 1995 album e. 1999 eternal” license

idk how to describe bone thugs’ music but they got some good ass slow beats (if i had to describe it i’d say its like 90s g-funk beats but slowed down to around 60-70 bpm... as im listening i can hear some late 80s-early 90s R&B influences too) and some crazy flows where theyre both singing and rapping at the same time… there will never be another group like bone thugs-n-harmony

my favorite song(s) from this album: tha crossroads1st of tha monthbuddah lovazmo’ murda


Yabujin - FLASH CASANOVA (2020)

this is a lil different than yabujin's other works, honing in on the late 2000s-early 2010s vibe as opposed to his usual early-mid 2000s style... regardless its still a good ass song

yabujin makes me feel so girly for some reason idk why

you know what i dont think i even know what im talking about


this shit is so hardd its just too bad i dont know how to jumpstyle

note that dj gyrotta zao is a different pseudonym for yabujin… this is the name he uses for hardstyle type shi

Three 6 Mafia - Poppin' My Collar (2005)

i gotta note that i am referring to the version with project pat's verse... the one that goes "i know you're sicker than sick-uh, when you see the rims flick-uhh"... you wont get the full experience with the other version

this one of my favorite songs to get lit to... its perfect for all kinds of activities like driving around with the homies or just walking around in some hard fits

The Pharcyde - Runnin' (1995)

DILLA STRIKES AGAIN!!!!! this one of my favorite beats ever what with the guitar and shit

2 Kudos
