This album has a special place in my heart, it made me realize that not all old school hip-hop is boring. This is one of the most fun albums I've heard ever. So many classic tracks.

FAVORITE TRACKS: Rhymin & Stealin, Fight For Your Right, No Sleep Til Brooklyn, Time To Get Ill

LEAST FAVORITE: Girls (still good)
