One of the records that got me into listening to hip hop music in general.

An excellent collection of beats, however, it isn't really an album and therefore doesn't get the rating that it would have warranted had it been turned into one.

This is probably my favourite Hip hop album of all time next to other classics like Liquid Swords and Madvillainy. I still can't help to listen to this masterpiece once a week.

Reading up on the making of this album made it so much more personal and hardhitting.

One of the most personal and beautiful albums I have ever heard. You feel as if you are in the hospital room with him while he crafts every beat and plays it for you. Simply just beautiful.

If I die in half as spectacular a way as J Dilla, I will have lived a full life. The greatest work of his career, put together in a hospital. RIP. The greatest work of sampling outside of Entroducing in my view.

I feel like Endtroducing... and this album are the twin masterpieces of sampling.
