Who played the live drums on "Perfection"? The notes never told us, even til this day.

30+ years and I still haven't found a better intro than Dumb Girl...

Quite possibly the greatest hip-hop album ever. This is the one that skyrocketed the genre into the mainstream and showed everyone that it was here to stay. The first 4 tracks are an incredible back-to-back display of talent. The rest of the album is no slouch either. I own the original vinyl pressing. Even though it is a little noisy, it's a fun collectible to listen to.
