Rap isn't like other music cos it's got rapping in it, and that's the main feature. Hence the name rap. Listen to the rapping, not the music, and you might be more impressed.

For me, nobody beats Tribe Called Quest.

oh, there is definetly some creativity in the mainstream, but I turned off the radio a while ago becuase i was sick of hearing only Dr. Dre/swizz beats/whoever does the Roc's production

but some popular rap I can definetly appreciate...

as for my list, do you mean new songs? Becuase I am kinda slow on the uptake as far as whats cool goes, and i rarely hear whats on the radio.

all rap supporters should get a smack in the face. rap sucks. rap isnt music. rap doesnt take skill, it takes money, attitude, and the ability to wave your hands. you cant spell crap without rap. dont listen to rap, listen to something artful that takes skill to make.

rap music takes talent to do. End of story. Psychopsilocybin is a complete moron and should have his opinion rights revoked. When you start writing rhymes and making beats and getting somewhere with it. You obviously don't know anything about hiphop or rap music to say that all you need is money and attitude. EVer heard Dead Prez? Blackalcious? Talib Kwali? Mos Def? Tech n9ne? Any of the older Outkast stuff? No, you haven't. GO back to your suburb and listen to your techno or nu metal or w/e the hell it is you like.

You've just demonstrated a complete lack of knowledge of both rap and music in general.

I can't understand people who make such idiotic sweeping statements. How can you dismiss a genre that you clearly know little about and have had little experience of?

In short: you suck.

Host: I've heard whispers about the financial support your government receives from the drug industry.
Peruvian: Well, the irony of this, of course, is that this money, which is in the billions, is coming from your country. You see, you are the major purchaser of our national product, which is of course cocaine.
Host: On one hand, you're saying the United States government is spending millions of dollars to eliminate the flow of drugs onto our streets. At the same time, we are doing business with the very same goverment that is flooding our streets with cocaine.
Peruvian: Mmm-hmm, si, si. Let me show you a few other characters that are involved in this tragic comedy.

If you're gonna get into rap music, start with the basics, the shit from back in the day that made it really popular. Go for the old school gangsta shit: Public Enemy, NWA, EZ-E, Snoop Dogg, Dr Dre, Tupac, Biggie, Wu-Tang and all the satellites and solo projects therof, 666 Mafia, De la Soul, all that underground new york shit, anything from new york is usually good, especially 90's era.

Then you got your doctor octagon, Cypress Hill, and all the jungle/DNB/triphop DJs and mcs...

fuck mainsteram rap.. go for the good stuff

Del The Funky HomoSapien
Gza (Liquid Sowrds)
Souls of Mischief
Hieroglypics
Dangermouse (Grey Album)
Digable Planets (Blowout Comb)
Dr. Octagon (aka cool keith, get dr octagonacologist)
Atmosphere
Qbert & Mixmaster Mike
Mos Def
Talib Queli
Black Star (Mos and Talib together)
Digital UnderGround (Sex Packets... that's a fun lil' album)

and of course

DJ SHADOW (Entroducing)... although there are no real vocals

In the words of CHUCK D... RAP is not music... RAP is a verb.. it's something you do .. "HIP HOP" is the genre. That's like calling the rock and roll genre "sing" and the punk genre "scream".



..


1,2,3... It's kind of dangerous to be an MC... they shot tupac and BiggiiEEEE>. too much violence in hip hop.. why oH!

You guys suck!  50 cent?!?! :puke:

Its all about Wu Tang!  Wu Tang is the greatest!  The two disc forever album is the greatest rap cd of all time imo.  I cant believe the only one to mention them is Doctor J.... 

Cypress hill is fun to listen to, as well as the chronic and doggystyle (of course).  Busta Rhyms-When Disaster Strikes is also a fun album.

Wu Tang Forever Mutha Fuckas!!!

i dont like a lot of rap, but i have some mos def, jay-z, and older eminem that I really like. I don't have time to dig through all the garbage anymore, there are many other genres that have much higher rates of worthwhile popular artists.

mainstream rap is as good as devil-preachery. you might as well tell people barely getting by is all you need to do in life, cuz some of the rap they play on the radio is so fucking bad i want to kill myself.
