    where and when can we buy these???? or is it just the respecttheclassix.com??

  • M-Double

    They should unearth unreleased gems, b-sides and remixes, that's what I would buy. The 70's and 80's babies all have those albums already and if the younger cats want to cop then they can still get any of these classic easily for under $5.

      And seriously, all jokes aside, on the comparison between DMX and 2Pac... The only reason that people say that 2Pac is the greatest is because he died. But no one was saying that when he was still alive. Same goes for Biggie Smalls. Don't get me wrong, they were good artists, but how is it that when they died all of a sudden people say that they are the best? People just need to wake up, and get in tune with reality.

    • ur wrong

      Ur wrong, that was not in the same calendar year, and those where not his debut albums numb nuts. I can't stand comments on hiphopdx they should turn them off. Respect hip hop and think about what you say before you say it.

      X is now broke and washed up.

    • Kizman

      DMX made 5 #1 triple platinum albums. X would lyrically murder 2pac. Oh yeah..... and guess who's still livin today. At least X was smart enough not to get himself shot.

    • Alex

      Pac did 2 in one year but they were not his first 2 albums. It says DMX was the first artist "to have his FIRST 2 albums released" Those 2Pac albums you are referring to are his 4th and 5th albums. DMX is the only artist in any genre to debut #1 on the Billboard for the first 5 albums of their career.

    • Alex

      It clearly says "to have his FIRST 2 albums released" Those 2Pac albums you are referring to are his 3rd and 4th albums. DMX is the only artist in any genre to debut #1 on the Billboard for the first 5 albums of their career.

  • Clocker

    EPMD, man I wish someone still made stuff as dope as they did back in the day. Erick and Parrish, never has there been better chemistry between two MC's.

  • yawn

    *yawn* oh, just some more old albums getting re-released. and it's not like some of these haven't already been remastered and re-released before.

  • Kizman

    X's 2nd album is underrated as hell

  • Fuck The Classics

    And nobody will buy them.

  • STFUUIgnants

    Hopefully up and coming rappers will cop these & build on it, instead of most of today's bs.

  • Anonymous

  • Denali

    Dope! Please keep releasing these joints on a monthly basis. All of the classics!

  • Anonymous

    seems that people want to be remembering the old good days of hiphop instead of those bullshit mcs today like: - lil wayne - 50 cent - drake - ross - big sean - kanye west

  • jimjim

    epmd all day baby parrish had to fuck things up boy the things money make a person do

  • Whorida

    Fuck yeah, my old CDs have to be turnt way the fuck up to hear. I will definitely cop remastered EPMD, NWA, Gang Starr and Slick Rick. Please remaster Cube's Predator too

    • play it loud

      You have to turn the volume up because the older albums were mastered with proper dynamics. "Louder" remasters have volume artificially raised at the expense of sound quality. You're too lazy to adjust the volume? SMH :| http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loudness_war
