What Are the 5 Essential Rap and Hip-Hop Albums?
In partnership with the new fiction publishing platform Liberty Island, PJ Lifestyle is going to begin promoting and co-hosting a series of debates and discussions about popular culture. The goal is to figure out what works and what doesn’t so that in the future we can promote and create better fiction and culture of our own. These are public brainstorming sessions for writers and culture advocates interested in developing a more vibrant popular culture. You’re invited to submit your answers to any of these questions — or a related one of your own! — that interests you:
A) in the comments
C) at your blog, then let us know in the comments or via email.
The most interesting answers may be linked, crossposted, or published at PJ Lifestyle.

Tuesday's "Who Are the Greatest Country Music Artists Everyone Should Have In Their Collection?" and Monday's Are Black Sabbath and the Rolling Stones Better Than the Beatles?
