Listen to This Album When You’re:

Final Thoughts:

If you asked me to create a list of the 50 Greatest Hip-Hop albums of all time I would include I Wish My Brother George Was Here. Without Del, we wouldn’t have guys like Tyler, The Creator or Watsky, they are so clearly influenced by his geeky/honest style. Del is Ice Cube’s cousin and he’s really marketing that on this album, smartly because this album may have fallen into obscurity without Ice Cube pushing it. Like Ice or not, he has done the underground a true favor by getting behind this album. This is Del’s Illmatic, I don’t think it gets much better than this.
