    Essential to have for any east coast hip hop head. This is when Black Thought and Malik B really came into their own as lyricists I think.

    This is better than Do You Want More in every way.

    Damn, they don't have Clones. That's one of my favorite cuts.

    I enjoy Things Fall Apart and Do You Want More?!!!??! more, but Illadelph is still excellent. It's pretty easy to see why this album gets so much love.

    Everything going on musically in this album is so cool, laid back, and unique. Thought makes some really solid lyrical statements in this one too. Such an excellent and underated album. It's definetely got a decent cult following going on though.
