(Scroll down for Essentials List)

The Hip-Hop forum is attempting to be a source of actual discussion of music unlike most of sputnikmusic.com's forums. If you feel out of the loop check the stickied threads as they provide more information for people just getting into the genre. Please try to keep spamming to a minimum. Granted there is going to be a lot of discussion of awesome lyrics and great beats so extended discussions are encouraged just try to keep them somewhat on focus. Otherwise feel free to post about your favorite rap artists whether it be Freddie Foxxx or Dose One.

Current Moderators: kingsoby1, pixiesfanyo, Wish


Rules:

1. Discussion of Illmatic and 36 Chambers is solely reserved for the "what have you been listening to lately" thread.

2. No criticizing taste. You're welcome to say you don't like something... or to discuss why you don't like something... in fact we WANT you to discuss these things. But none of this "you're a backpacker lol" or "mainstream sux" jibber-jabber. It's played.

3. We don't care about crusaders trying to tell us about "real rap" or how all good rap is dead. This is a topic that only matters to people who don't know anything about the genre and we could really care less.

In a desperate attempt to expand my limited horizons, I'm slowly worming my way into the world of hip hop. Right now I'm liking El-P and Massive Attack, and would like to hear more.

So I was hoping you all could suggest the undisputed absolute best best hip hop albums.

04-14-2009, 03:12 PM
Dr. Who Dat? is kindof like Flying Lotus, instrumental hip hop with glitches and stuff.
Deerhunter is not Hip Hop, more like Animal Collective-ish stuff.
Luke Vibert is weird electronica music, with some Hip Hop beats, lots of acid jazz stuff etc.
Cyne are a group of Mc's, they kinda sound like Binary Star or On Be Lo IMO.

i dont have the anniversary edition so I haven't heard the remixes, I should get on that.

I love the part in Halftime where he goes:
It's like that, you know it's like that
I got it hemmed, now you never get the mic back
When I attack, there ain't an army that could strike back
So I react never calmly on a hype track

the flow in that part kinda reminds me of ATCQ

i think the one love remix was a radio single... i don't know man the electric piano in the original just eats at me :( i'm sayin' one love remix is better than the original :p

(Scroll down for Essentials List)

The Hip-Hop forum is attempting to be a source of actual discussion of music unlike most of sputnikmusic.com's forums. If you feel out of the loop check the stickied threads as they provide more information for people just getting into the genre. Please try to keep spamming to a minimum. Granted there is going to be a lot of discussion of awesome lyrics and great beats so extended discussions are encouraged just try to keep them somewhat on focus. Otherwise feel free to post about your favorite rap artists whether it be Freddie Foxxx or Dose One.

Current Moderators: kingsoby1, pixiesfanyo, Wish


Rules:

1. Discussion of Illmatic and 36 Chambers is solely reserved for the "what have you been listening to lately" thread.

2. No criticizing taste. You're welcome to say you don't like something... or to discuss why you don't like something... in fact we WANT you to discuss these things. But none of this "you're a backpacker lol" or "mainstream sux" jibber-jabber. It's played.

3. We don't care about crusaders trying to tell us about "real rap" or how all good rap is dead. This is a topic that only matters to people who don't know anything about the genre and we could really care less.

juicy j - the realest nigga in the game

this mixtape is amazing, sounds totally just like old-school three 6 mafia, like from Chapter 1 or Chapter 2

C-Rayz Walz - Year of the Beast (wow this is so underrated)
Slow Suicide Stimulus (another ridiculously underrated gem)

also found both in the 75% off LP bins at Rhymsayers' 5th Element store here in mpls. they had like 20 copies of Beanie Siegel's the B. Coming ha

Listening to Criminal Minded by BDP at the moment. Haven't heard this in a long long time and I thought I'd give it a spin. Old skool hip hop at it's finest.

C-Rayz Walz - Year of the Beast

I really dug Year of the Beast a lot whenever I first heard it. Ravipops I think is his best record, though.

will have to check it out.

man, all i've been listening to lately is Secret Chiefs 3, Estradasphere, and Jay-Z... the first 2 would make excellent sampling material.

I've been listening to Outkast, Gucci Mane, Method Man and Redman, and Jay Electronica.

jay electronica really really really needs to come out with an album. him and erykah badu probably just smoke all day. new gucci mane is really good, blackout 2 was okay.

ATM
05-21-2009, 06:24 AM
Yeah I really like what I've heard from Jay Electronica. The new Gucci Mane is hilarious. My friend has Stoopid as his ringtone haha. Blbackout 2 has some badass songs but overall its just okay, I agree. I love that song Dangerous Emcees though.
