Rap/Hip-Hop
« on: Jan 05, 2008, 09:46 PM »
Discuss your gangsta ass shit.  Let's talk about some rap that's not on the RADIO.  That shit hurts the genre way too much.

Here's what I've been bumpin lately:

Brother Ali - the undisputed truth (quite possibly the best rap cd I've ever heard)
GZA - Liquid Swords
Raekwon - Only built 4 cuban linx
Del Tha Funkee Homosapien - 3030, no need for alarm
swollen members - bad dreams
ghostface killah - supreme clientèle
method man - 421...the day after

let's hear some dope recommendations

Tupac's underground music (not the shitty official releases that remixed his unreleased songs b'cuz they ruined perfectly good songs)
mobb deep's "hell on earth" is an essential rap album
The Roots
Common has nice beats but I dont think he can rap

Come to think of it, I dont listen to rap hardly at all... because of all the mainstream shit turns me off

im not really into rap at all. especially this radio soulja boy bullshit.

but atmosphere is prettty good and u gotta love snoop. I saw him live and he actually has musicians around him playing instruments.
its not this standing around a dj bullshit, waving a towel around talking about how big your rims are!

thats probably the greatest hip hop record ever.
so ahead of its time . wordplay is sick.

my 2nd fav has to be Ghostfaces "Ironman"
and of course gzas liquid swords.

also find lord finesse's mixtapes , he had one with L that was great.

Gravediggaz is my current fav.

MC Solar and The Roots are close second and third.

Del is the shit, if you like you should check out other releases from the heiroglyphics crew (souls of mischief, casual etc. ). heiroglyphics "3rd eye vision" is amazing. best hip hop album ever.

of course no one mentioned any kool keith projects. this guy is the shit too.

heiroglyphics - 3rd eye vision and full circle
kool keith - black elvis
Del - all (when will the 11th hour come out!?!)
lupe fiasco - the cool, best hip hop ive heard in awhile
souls of mischief - 93 til infinity
tribe called quest - you know which ones ;)
outkast - ATLiens

"I bet I could throw a football over those mountains"
"Be like Cyn"
I fucking love Brad Pitt
