Rap is ok.

Hip-Hop is life.

I prefer:
Del the funky homosapien
Mos Def
Talib Kweli
Wu-Tang
Method Man + Redman
Eminem
Krs-ONE
SLICK RICK
Run DMC
Big Daddy Kane
Sugarhill Gang
50 Cent (he really can flow, listen!)
speech from arrested development
treach from naughty by nature
nwa
cannibal ox
el-p + aesop rock
MC Conrad (Bukem's MC)
Tribe
Beastie Boys
Biggie
Tupac (To say this man was not true to hip hop is like saying that crack isn't addictive)
The Roots (Like Illadelph Halflife, they've deteriorated as a live act tho)
Dialated Peoples
Blackalicious
NAS (The new krs-one IMO)
Tim + Magoo
Old Snoop
Chino XL

I don't want to take up space...
I could seriously sit here for hours and just type.

Just to clarify ... this is now a thread about mainstream and old school mainstr4eam rap, right?




This thread is about whatever people want it to be.

Ummm Rap was not mainstream in the early 90s late 80's.. How old are you btw?

Rap was definately more of an underground thing back then, same with what was good hip pop. Take a look at top 40 lists for the 90's, most Rap like NWA, Ice T, etc... never got on those charts.

Some of those artists I listed are more mainstream than others but what is your issue here? Does it bother you or something?

I hired local rap acts for my 18th birthday at a hall I rented out for 200 people, I've seen a ton of the old school rap groups I listed when they came to my city, one of my friends was a successful local rapper, a white one at that who played a lot of clubs here in my city for like 3 years during 89-92.

Yeah, oh yeah that was all mainstream, not.

alot of my homeboys are comin' up in the rap game.. my nigga fred was on that making tbe band 2 show, and this guy i used to work at a barber shop with, Pitbull, is signed to Lil Jon's label. Point is there's still mainstream shit that isn't bad. All the emcee's and groups Thor listed are great, but some of them are just hard for me to listen to anymore, alot of it is so dated that the messages are just kind of lame now. and the beats, while they mave have been good back then, can't compare to some of the slick production today.

I don't know how big a distinction there is between rap and hip hop but if you listen to Alphabet Aerobics by Blackalcious I think you'll realise alot of talent lies in it. Other GREAT hip hop artists include:

Pharcyde, A Tribe Called Quest, The Coup, Ugly Duckling, The Roots, Common, Jurassic 5, Blackalicious, Company Flow, any song featuring MC Abdominal (the DJ Format album is a good place to start), Dead Prez, Buck 65, Anti-pop Consortium, The Nextmen, People Under the Stairs, Del the Funky Homosapien, Mr. Lif, MF Doom, Digable Planets, Atmosphere, Sole, Dangermouse (DM) & Jemini.

If you've heard most of them and STILL think that then your argument won't be so closed minded.

dont pay any attention to him, unlikelyhero. he's just another suburban kid who probably listens to crappy ozzfest-metal, and wouldn't know real hiphop if it kicked him in the balls and screamed I AM REAL HIPHOP.

Not true.

Most rappers don't know how to 'sing'.

it's reciting rhymes.
