5th Ward Boyz - Rated G (1995)

 
5th Ward Houston is no joke. This album defines Rap-A-Lot in the mid 90s; it's introspective, soulful, mid-tempo, and with plenty of electric piano chords every 3-5 beats or so to be joined with an electric guitar WAAA (give or take that is--this is the South baby!). And most importantly ...the drums aren't drowned by synths, guitar, and organ... hell yeah just let this ride.
