Protoman's Five Nostalgic Hip-Hop Album Picks; Performing at Brown Bag Wednesday

Brown Bag Wednesday is the newest addition to the Green Room weekly party lineup. There's usually a whole lot of drinking Colt 45, booty-dancing to throwback jams, and an occasional impromptu break-dancing competition. In sum, it's a total anything-goes type of atmosphere.

They kicked off the inaugural party with Talib Kweli and have continued to pack the stage with an assortment of talent. Tonight, hometown hip-hop artist Protoman takes the stage at Green Room alongside Community Property and Phresh James. And in getting ready, he gave County Grind a list of his top five nostalgic hip-hop albums.


Peep the list after the jump.
