Ive seen a bunch of threads where people say they lost all of their music or they want to get interested in some new music. So, instead of the constant new threads piling up lets make one big one for people to come in and just see what is deemed as "essential" for the music library

So, if you want to help, write down the albums you deem as essential and Ill determine if it should be added to OP

All help is welcomed as there are countless albums I cant remember.

Granted, some wont be classics, but in order to give people different artists to listen to, I'm going to give their best works (e.g. J Cole - The Warm Up, Big KRIT - KRIT wuz here, Kid Cudi - Man on the Moon, etc.)

Also, I left out Kanye on purpose so this doesn't turn into a "which Kanye albums are better" thread. We all like him, you know which of his albums you like more.
