Paco hangs head


This is a poor example of a "rap and hip hop topic". Out of the 5 sites linked, there's only ONE even worthy to be there, B.I.G.

Decent isn't good, and decent doesn't cut it.

edit: I'm just bitter because the rap topic always ends up talking about Pac, Dre, Eazy-E, or some other west coast sh*t. We need something new to talk about, dammit.

Anybody got any recommendation's for someone looking to find some good music?

I've tried and liked:

MF Doom
Jedi Mind Tricks
Looptroop
Common
Atmosphere
Immortal Technique
Talib Kweli
The Roots
Mos Def
Black Star
Tribe Called Quest
Nas

I know they're pretty much your "mainstream underground hip-hop" artists but since they're the ones most commonly mentioned then I thought I may as well try them out first. smile.gif

Big L, Big Daddy Kane, Big Pun, Run DMC, Public Enemy, Biggie, Wu Tang Clan are some artists/groups I'd recommend you check out. However, your taste in music probably differs to mine.

Heh, missed all of those from my list, but I have still heard them all, love all of them, but are there any excellent artists that are underground that chances are I haven't ever heard of?

lol. Pac, decent? biggrin.gif

Anyway, a while back I requested some old-school artists to listen to and I've surprisingly found a liking to a lot of them. I'm gonna head out to the local shop aroud here and see what they have in stock in the "Oldies" section. colgate.gif

Paco, you better stop before you get a PWB. sigh.gif

Again, I like Eazy, but I haven't heard too much of his material outside NWA. Also, I can't find that track Vito mentioned, looks like I'll have to turn to "alternative" choices. sly.gif

Nah, can't say I like Snoop. He's been churning out the same stuff for the past 7 years. No innovation and no attempt to reinvent himself.

Been taking a trip down memory lane. Been buying some old albums I used to listen to. I haven't heard these since I was 12 or 13 (21 now). I got Pauls Boutique by the Beastie Boys, underestimated album I think. I like the fusion of 70's New York soul with hip-hop beats and rapping. Got Licensed to Ill (1986) too. I'm loving the really old-skool drum machine beats.

Now I might get some Jurrasic 5 or KRS One.

Peace out!

Snoop has tried to reinvent himself. He's re-established himself in a mainstream light, which in business and money terms was a smart move. From a music standpoint it's f*cking ridiculous and just downright messed the f*ck up. I hate seeing snoop bopping about with bloody jt, it's a f*cking comedy routine. Still...he tried, he failed, he lost respect from hip hop heads. What a wolly.

Snoop sold out the day he remixed 50's Motherf*ckin PIMP. man, he was the gangstarest anorexic rapper I've ever seen. Doggystyle kicked. I guess money > good flow, and keepin it real.

Boston has some really good rappers at the moment like Mr. Lif, Akrobatic, Edan they're all refreshingly original and talented. Also I agree with Paco, this chat is always Tupac, Eazy, Dre, blah blah blah. I listen to them sometimes but, still, they're overrated as hell. I have always liked the East Coast a lot more, but the West Coast has its moments.

You should listen to Sir Menelik on his album Cyclops 4000. I am listening to it now. His wordplay is really really real.

is this the official hip hop/rap topic or the bask every single hip hop rap artist topic because already Paco's managed to Bash a few decent artists like 2 Pac and Eazy Vito's managed to knock Snoop Dogg wtf is wrong with you all way i see it is every artist is good in there own light but Vito trying to make out Eazy is just as good as 2 Pac or B.I.G. is just f*ckin ridiculous man Eazy's raps were ghost written most likely by MC Ren after The D.O.C. left Ruthless with Dre anyway now can we start talking about some decent artists who aren't always recognized like Sam Sneed because he made more tracks than just U Better Recognize he did an alternative version of Street Dreams with Nas And Nature and a track called Lady Heroin

Eazy put compton on the map, and partially made his rhymes. He was no lyricist or flow maker, but he revolutionized rap, and made a completely different genre get known out there... and his songs you gotta admit... were better than some of dre's. Just Tah Let U Know (youtube link) or Niggaz Aint Dead - he made the lyrics for Niggaz Aint Dead (youtube link {keep in mind the sniper remix is actually the remake of the video, not the song})

He's nothin like pac or biggie. He's something else. Eazy is the revolutionary. He had niggas doin rhymes for him, but he was gangsta.

We gotta respect him man, he was hard in his time.

Pac is the man, biggie is so-so. He had lyrics, but wack ass flows.

dude, eazy e put gangsta rap on the map. He was the money man of the golden era of hip hop. He did the ropes. He brought compton to the mainstream, and managed ruthless by himself.

I respect the guy for pionering gansta rap but you can't compare him as an artist to other great rappers.
