Like Hip Hip but hate gangsta?
    #1982816 - 10/06/03 01:44 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Try the following:

**Aesop Rock**, Eyedea, Josh martinez, anticon, el-p, slug, sole, atmosphere, RJD2.

Got any for me? Listen and let me know what you think.

Ace Rock is my fav, suggested sample songs: float, big bang, the mayor and the crook

Hieroglyphics are dope. They're basically Souls of Mishief reformed under a new name.

Well , you cant just generalise "gangster and not gangster" , as basically everything which isnt west-coast is not like that.So here goes:

Nu-skool-like around '92-95:
Leaders of the New Skool
Lords of the Undergound
Lords of Brooklyn
Fu-Schnickens
Funkdoobiest
House of Pain
Das Efx

Mostly fast , and energetic I would say. "Crazy" is also a good word.

Jazz-Soul Influenced:
A tribe called quest
De La Soul
The Pharcyde

Nie to dance to.

"Da head-bang-shizznit":
Arsonists
Beatnuts
Cella Dwellas
Freddie the Foxx
Kriss Kross (Yes them! - The first album was great)
Smutpeddlers
Artifacts
Swollen members (The last album was shite)

Various:
Talib Kweli (Very melodic)
Jurassic 5
Beatnuts
Gangstarr
LoopTroop

I dont know all the ret you listed up, but I supposed it's eitehr real underground , or real pop. In the latter case I would propose the "Jazz-Soul" Influenced category and the Various stuff.

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.

This dude I work with just went to Atmosphere here in Denver, and he said it was pretty sick. Slug even said it was the most people he has ever preformed for.

I think I'll check some of his shit out soon.

Well you all quoted some very different styles of hiphop here. (I.e: Company Flow and the roots) So , why not explain a little what it is.
Cause:

HIPHOP ISNT JUST HIPHOP

Respect that please. :smile:

Ive been a longtime slug/atmosphere fan. Ive partied with Slug before and he was definately a cool guy.

I think outkast songs generally dont have the whole gangsta vibe... there are a few though. But its music I love listening to while I trip.

Old Aes should go down as classic hip-hop. New school Aesop... what've you done man? I respect the vibe, but why so gangsta?

Anyone checked out Alias? His new album muted is DOPE.

Did anyone mention the living legends crew?! And btw...hieroglyphics isn't a group, its a label which includes souls, pep-love, del, casual, and a few others.

... but they dont rapp together on all the tracks, ey?
They dont release label sampler , but do all the tracks together.
So effectively it is a group.
