SUCH A GOOD DEAL! This is awesome.

For those of you picking up just P.O.S. and Atmosphere, grab Mac Lethal, Abilities, and Semi-Official to round out the five. You won't be disappointed.
Picked these all up on a whim. Maybe it's because I'm tired and I have money sitting in my paypal from selling ebay items, but I hope this is worth it, haha.

I had to use paypal because the CC form wasn't working for some reason.

I grabbed POS, Atmosphere, I Self Divine, Dynospectrum, and Grayskul. Shipping was better than I expected, too (~$5).

Yes, everyone that is taking advantage of this deal should pick up 11:11 by Mac Lethal. I love that album!
Definitely agree. That album's been in my top 3 hip hop albums for a couple of years now. The only thing about Mac is that he goes all out when expressing his point of view about something (and that's a nice way of saying it), so I could see how someone who didn't agree wouldn't like him or even be a little offended by him haha

Thank you sir. I trust your taste in this genre above all on this website.

AI really want to hear that early POS and I haven't heard anyone else on that list, so I got those four you mentioned.

no shots at the guy cause he's pretty cool, but this is from the hip-hop thread:

i think it's funny that you trust someone's whose opinion on hip-hop has more likely than not been formulated as scraps of everyone else's in the general forum hip-hop discussion thread above anyone else's opinion on this site.

hell, you even have two staffers that would know more about hip-hop.

Lol this is funny, because I actually thought that HE was YOU. You're the guy who always owns me in hip hop conversations when I have them like, two times a month lol. So yeah, I thought he was you.

Lol yeah, I feel you. My bad. Anyway, what three other than POS/Atmosphere would you suggest?

funny thing is, i only like one of those albums, and it's 11:11/mac lethal.

outside of atmosphere, i never cared for rhymesayers much. they're all too pissed off and tend to sound the exact same. even pos - i've only liked never better and his work with the doomtree collab projects. i dig a handful of atmosphere projects, though. just not overcast.

highly rec atmosphere's lucy ford eps, when life gives you lemons, seven's travels and god loves ugly.

outside of those, eyedea and abilities' e&a, mf doom's mm..food, first two FELT albums (slug + murs) and blueprint's sign language - none of which are on that sale...haha.

and i think that's as good as i can do off the top of my head.

I haven't heard of any of these besides POS and Atmosphere. Anyone make a recommendation on any of the others?
Grayskul are cool.

E&A is incredible. Eyedea is nuts. Also, anything Abilities touches is usually pretty cool.

MM Food is only alright. I feel like Madvillainy sort of spoils other Doom for me.

I think the only way a sale like this could be cooler is if Stones Throw did something like this around the time the new Madvillain album and Aloe Blacc drops.
