Not only does this record feature amazing production and astounding rapping, but there’s also all sorts of great songwriting. It all comes together to make a terrifically fun album that grooves mightily and invites you back to listen over and over again, with piles of humor, such as Busta Rhymes’ incredible verse in Scenario where he challenges Ol’ Dirty Bastard in terms of thrilling incoherence. Check the Rhime, Scenario, Excursions and Verses from the Abstract sharing space on the same album? You spoil us, Tribe. Deservedly one of the most acclaimed hip hop albums ever, and THE jazz rap album.
