I heard. Guess I'd better check out "The Infamous"

Been catching up on hip hop classics I've never owned (or even listened to in full) relatively recently like "Enter The Wu Tang", "Regulate", "Doggystyle", "Ready To Die", "Illmatic", "6 Feet Deep", "The Sun Rises In The East", "Lifestylez Ov The Poor & Dangerous", "A Prince Among Thieves" and "3 Years, 5 Months & 2 Days In The Life of...".. Also got 2pac's 2-disc hits comp and most key albums by Outkast (better than I expected but I'm still not a huge fan) and Ice Cube (a bit repetitive but still really impressive- Cube was a great MC), Goodie Mob and Organized Konfusion.
I grew up hearing all this stuff and some Mobb Deep as well (think "The Infamous" is the only album I've heard) but it was always in the background- at a party, in someone's car or played by a DJ I used to buy weed off. I had never actually sat down and listened intently to these albums in their entirety. Been enjoying them and am open to recommendations (mainly looking for stuff from the 90's).
