    Default [New] Classic HipHop
    This theme is based on albums I consider classic hiphop albums. Of course there are some artists that deserve to have multiple albums considered classic but I tried to give a wide range. So each artist has one album.

    Some groups that have an album have individual members with albums as icons too. The Wu is a good example. There's an icon for 36 Chambers but Ghostface and GZA have their own icons too.

    All in all there are 77 icons. I tried my best to cover 3rd party apps.

    I used artists from the East, West, Down South, and Midwest.

    If you know your hiphop then you recognize this list. If you want to know more about hiphop this is a great start. The albums go as far back as the late 1970's, yes hiphop has been around that long, to a few in the 2000's. I will admit that there's definitely an old school flavor to this theme because I'm old school myself.

    Each of these albums was either influential in their message, lyrics, production, sound, or just damn good. *Note: Don't laugh at the DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince album because Jazzy Jeff is amazing.

    The artists and albums used as icons include:

    This is excellent, excellent (yea i said it twice) work. I had this idea mine was in its blueprint stages. I posted along with another theme I did but I used the actual artists, but this looks and came out waaay better than mine did. lol. Great Job and thanx for sharing!

    P.S. Glad to see u added Bone Thugs in tha classics as u can see by my avatar im a huge fan and alot of ppl sleep on em.
    They can be a great people, Kal-El, they wish to be.
    They only lack the light to show the way.
    For this reason above all, their capacity for good, I have sent them you... my only son.

    Of course I added them! They were responsible for the whole 'harmony' bit.
