How many Wu-Tang die hards up in this joint.


It should be a rule to only speak with Ebonics in this thread.

Yeah, that would be awesome. Thanks.

We can randomly upload stuff in here that we think people should listen to/check out, if you guys are up to it.

I'm listening to Eyedea and Abilities - Now

hxxp://s35.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=2UZ4Z3R1FNFBE39V5BQZTTL1YR

I wasn't really impressed with this track until he starts rapping and rhyming at lightspeed at around 0:39.

edit: In fact, it's not that great of a song at all, I was just listening to it at the time.

I've been getting more and more into rap/hip-hop recently. I love Wiley, Dizzee Rascall, (older) Roll Deep, Crazy Titch. I think they'd be considered UK Garage, not hip-hop, but I'm not fussy. I'm really not a fan of stuff like 50 Cent though.

I love Rap music, I love Illmatic for making this thread too,
.

[/DON'T FORGET TO CHECK OUT MY [URL=http://www.musicianforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=375620]SERIES THREADS[/url] IN R&M, THERE'S RAP THERE TOO!]
, never hurt anyone..

EDIT:
alright, my favourite rap bands:

Grandmaster Flash & TFF,
Public Enemy,
N.W.A,
Tupac,
The Beastie Boys,
Various Solo Rappers (Ice Cube, Dre., Eazy etc),
Rob Base,
Big Daddy Kane,
Blackalishious,
Deltron 5000,
Roll Deep,
Kanye West.

And the likes, I like various songs from certain artists, but as a whole I don't like certain artists.

I also hate the way newbs diss rap because they think it will make them look cool.

The Whitey Album by Ciccone Youth is probably one of my favorite rap albums. And yes, there is rapping on it.

As of now I really wanna hear the new Buck 65 album, but so far Be is definately the best hip-hop album of the year, followed possibly by the latest by Roots Manuva.

Anyone know any of the details of the upcoming Blackalicious album or when its coming out?

I bought Lords of the Underground's "Here Come the Lords" and Run D.M.C.'s Down With the King (which I wasn't incredibly happy with). I would have rather had Tougher Than Leather, since the store was apparently selling it for $2.99, but they lied to me and they didn't even have it.

This was about two weeks ago. I need to purchase some more stuff soon.

Sweet, they can put on an awesome show.

I just saw VH1's Least Hip Hop Moments of All Time or whatever. Kinda sad, kinda funny.

I saw a couple of those. Most of the ones I saw really weren't that bad. Like Busta Rhymes and Martha Stewart and Elmo rapping.

The Elmo rap was funny. Never saw that before. Mostly the show was just like, "Look! White guy rapping. White guys can't rap lolz."

Rap labels:

Stones Throw
Definitive Jux
Ninja Tune (lot of turntablist stuff)
Quannum
Rhymesayers
Rawkus
Chocolate Industries
Warp (not really)
Fat Beats

Probably missing something obvious. I really don't think about labels so much any more; you're liable to find some crap anywhere you look. In any case, Stones Throw always surprises me with their consistency. I don't own a bad album from Stones Throw, but it's not like I have their entire catalogue so meh.

Thanks a lot. I just like to find new artists through record labels, and I wasn't sure what rap/hip hop ones were legit.
