New Section?

So, I've been thinking: how about a section devoted to old(er) albums?

I recently (re)purchased The Blueprint, Jay-Z's classic album released on Sept 11, 2001 and fell in love with it all over again, and not just because of gems like Renegade, Song Cry and Takeover, but because of the overall value of the album and the ferocity and concentration that Jigga brought to the mic.

This album launched Jay-Z to a whole new scope of listeners, both as newbie fans of hip-hop, but also as interested parties in the whole Nas/Jay-Z beef. Hell, for the Nas beef alone, this album stands as a classic.


Sorry, I didn't mean to get into an impromptu album review, but when the muse strikes, right? So, what do you guys think about that? We have the album reviews for current records and mixtapes, the Pioneer Series about the originators of our genre and then maybe a new section about throwback albums.

Thoughts? Yay, nay? GIMME SOME COMMENTS, dammit!
