Any hip hop fans? If you could buy 1 new album..."Watch the Throne" with Kanye and Jay-z? or Bad meets Evil?

I picked up watch the throne yesterday. Along with the newest wu-tang and royce albums. I have no interest in eminem anymore. All he does is yell and sound angry in all his songs now. Too repetitive, i like the old funny slim shady.

I'd probably lean Bad meets Evil. Both are good albums and I'd recommend both but I think Watch the Throne indulges in both Kanye and Jay-Z's bad habits a little. Bad meets Evil is the sharpest Eminem has sounded in years now that he's finally stopped trying to appeal to 11 year olds with his singles.

Well, of the 3 cd's I grabbed, Wu-Tang - Legendary Weapons crushes both Watch the Throne and Success is Certain. I highly recommend to any old school hip hop lovers.

I'm having some problems with my audio here at home but once I get to work, it's near the top of my list of things to do.

Noel Gallager's first solo effort: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kFx_IniNjfE

Great tune!

As conceited as he is, I think he's a great artist. Can really punch out catchy tracks.

So I haven't picked up Throne yet, but Bad Meets Evil is pretty awesome. The first...I guess I'd say 3 tracks are absolutely fantastic. Em is amazing on the first 2 tracks. Don't understand why he doesn't do that more. I got so tired of his stupid accent and singing and crap like that. The guy has some ridiculous mic skills.
