Ironic that the album finals are ending the exact same way they began for me. I think it was week 1 that I chose PE over Kendrick, even though I had Kendrick rated higher in my spreadsheet. Now I'm going with PE over Kendrick again, even though I (technically) have Kendrick once again rated ever so slightly higher (8.33 to 8.23). I'm just going by which I'd rather listen to at this moment. Can't go wrong - both of these are great.

Public Enemy - It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back FTW

Now, this is my favorite rap album of all time, currently #17 of all albums of all time, so I hope it wins. But somehow it makes me so much happier that it beat MBDTF than it would if it won the championship.

Will vote for The Message. I've probably heard both the songs in the other semifinal but don't know them by name, will vote later.

Well now I feel like more of an ass for taking a shot at Public Enemy in the first round. I figured recent classics by Kendrick and Kanye would dominate this tournament, but I severely underestimated the staying power of Public Enemy, at least in the eyes of most people on this forum.
