Steal These Albums

The ten most dangerous and radical hip-hop records of all time

10. Mos Def,Black on Both Sides (1999)

Black on Both Sides is filled with black positivity that doesn't fire off shotgun blasts like NWA, but instead drops its knowledge to cool jazz loops -- a breath of fresh air, rather than a hail of bullets. Sometimes deep and sometimes just blabbing, Mos Def manages to pack a classic Russian novel's worth of verbiage into each song. As far as positive hip-hop goes, A Tribe Called Quest, Black Eyed Peas and Jurassic 5 are responsible for groovier tunes, but Mos Def had a little more to say here.
