A really classic hip-hop vibe from start to finish, and I love that they "get in the zone of positivity" unlike the vast majority of guns'n'gangsta rappers who too often die tryin'.

This album brought an excellent fusion of jazz and hip hop. One of the most influential album of all time IMO. RIP Phife

Minimalist and jazzy, but pretty fun once you get used to it!

Definitely a landmark. Amazing use of loops and samples. The emphasis on jazz and funk make this an effortless listen on top of it being obviously highly influential.

I can hear the direct influence on some of my favorite hip hop records like Stankonia, To Pimp a Butterfly, and Madvillainy.

Jazz and hip hop merge together perfectly. The bass notes in "Buggin Out" are ridiculously fitting.
