Five Albums That Never Get Old To Me…


I love music, but often don’t have time to listen to it.  My impatience generally leads me to be frustrated with the radio, which then causes me to transition to my Ipod.  Since I live a good distance away from some of the things in life that I enjoy, being able to have my music with me is imperative.  There’s nothing like driving in the car, listening to music, feeling like you don’t have a care in the world.  That said, here are five albums that never get old to me; that I can listen to all the way through without skipping a track, and just make me feel good.  They’re listed in no particular order:

1.  Kanye West: The College Dropout

2.  Jay-Z: The Blueprint

3. Lauryn Hill: The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill

4.  Kirk Franklin: Hero

5.  Tie: Kanye West- Late Registration and 2Pac: Makaveli


It was definitely a struggle to come up with just five, which is why there’s a tie.  But, which five albums never get old to you?

  1. Same thing I said – it’s hard to name only five, but I took a moment and came up with Purple Rain, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, Makaveli: The Don Killuminati, Songs in The Key of Life, 1999.

    I am sure a couple will change if asked the same question a month from now. But, as of today, these are firm choices.

    I hardly understand why I am shocked that you are a fan of Tupac Shakur, but I am.

  2. I think you did a fine job with the selections. All of those are timeless albums. Here are a few that are just as good to me. Common – Finding Forever, Andre 3000 – The Love Below, Nas – Hip Hop is Dead, Deitrick Hadden – Chain Breaker, and Martha Munizzi – The Best is Yet to Come.

    Like yourself, I like to keep it interesting.
