"blow out comb" is one of the best hip-hop albums ever.

It's not wrong, but you should do something about it

I second that "Blowout" is one of the best albums of that era. Its a must have.

The "Where I'm From" remix is dope too.

I had a neighbor in college, from a rural area, that threatended to throw my stereo out the window if I contiued to play blowout comb. So, yes, blowout comb is indeed an underated and often overlooked lp.
