Black on Both Sides is one of my favourite hip hop albums ever. Ecstatic was nice too, and of course Blackstar. But New Danger was just meh and True Magic was terrible IMO.

my fav is probably New Danger!!

but you forgot that he was also in the group Urban Thermo Dynamics...
Urban Thermo Dynamics - Manifest Destiny

and you forgot the songs he did for the movie Cadillac Records!
Particular Place To Go, Nadine, Maybellene, Promised Land, Come On

and of course you should add Lord, Lord, Lord
