No I hadn't seen this thanks for the link!
IT TAKES A NATION OF MILLIONS TO HOLD US BACK by PUBLIC ENEMY is one of greatest rock albums ever, in my opinion, and Chuck D, one of the greatest frontmen. Though the album is undeniably hip hop, its foundation and delivery is all rock. Their musicianship and showmanship carried legacies from our historical greats, as well as providing a real blueprint for what a hip hop "band" could look like. (Side note; in 2008, PE performed with THE ROOTS as their backing band at The Roots Picnic in Philadelphia. That was the amalgam of all the best Black music, ever).
Big up Craig, I was at that show and they tore it up! Full crew with Flav & Griff, awesome.
MUST LISTEN TO: the money store album by death grips
when skies wash ashore by straightline stitch
EVERY Orange 9mm album
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand sevendust------------>every album
For this album, I may have to direct you a bit to the library of the college I go to. Heh! Otherwise, most of the music I recommend would probably not be pure rock music. It'll be more like trip-hop, experimental, hip-hop, etc.
