    Hip-hop

    Been going through some YouTube vida for the past few hours of old school hip-hop. Souls of mischief, tribe, camp Lo, pharcyde, Keith murry. I miss music like this. Who were some of your favorites. Post vids, discuss, Let's remember what was real. No fighting. I think ready to die and southernplayalisticcadillacmusik are my 2 favorite albums of all time.

    This is probably my favorite song.

    There's something about those long grueling climbs that gets my front end all stiff... And I'm not talking about lockout...

    First responder. While I love hip/hop and underground rap. I can safely say I could count the number of members on this site on my hand that enjoys this genre of music. Don't know why nor do I want to turn this into a debate by responding to this. Favorites from the early 90's were the WU, Onyx, and, Mobb deep.

    Capleton & Method Man - Wings Of The Morning - YouTube

    who sampled...

    Otis Redding - Hard To Handle - YouTube! -RIP

    both great songs IMO

    Tribe, De La, B-Boys, NWA, Biggie, early Snoop, early Hov, Dre, Wu Tang, Mobb Deep, The Roots....probably The Roots more than anyone.

    That's about it, I could care less about the rest.

    Outkast has been one of my favs since the beginning. I still respect them with the more modern stuff even though its not the same. They get older and realize its time to just cater to the masses but at least they still come up with decent **** and not a song strictly chanting your name and a catchphrase over and over with a short verse consisting of the n-word and hoes every rhyme.

    Props to the one posting digable planets. Totally forgot about them. Im also a huge fan of very early UGK and 8ball/mjg.

    They just dont make them like they used too.

    Monzie sent me a crapload that were good, but i think i lost some of that list in the great PM purge of 2012. Perhaps he will chime in.

    its silly, but i liked one of the D12 albums. mostly for the humor...but the some of the beats were good, not gonna lie.

    D12 wasn't bad. There's still a lot of good hip-hop out there these days. You never hear that stuff on the radio. I do like when the pop stations have early morning old school throwback shows. They play like slick Rick and fat boys , nwa. They only do it when no ones listening haha. As far as modern goes I looooove atmosphere , mfdoom, talib and mos def, del, aesop rock just to think of a random few. These guys know to stay away from the big time. All it will do is force them to change. I absolutely love wale's cd "ambition" he's pretty mainstream but I still dig it. That song lotus flower bomb is the jam! Helped me out on a date this past Saturday.


    Here's some pharcyde. Doom sampled some of this in a mixtape.

    I'm guessing you're looking at nineties hip-hop as old skool. Boot Camp Clik, WU, De La, Black Moon, Smif n' Wessun(now Cocoa Brovaz), Tribe, Souls, all the big names( Snoop, Dre, Pac, Biggie, et al.), The Coup, Dead Prez, Digital Underground, Shock G, Company Flow, Buckshot, Mac Dre, Andre Nickatina, Cougnut. If we go back to the eighties there's a few more. There is also a ton more from the nineties but this is all I feel like typing right now. Hutch get your music listing skillzzzz on yo.

    Yea i was born in 87. My brother and uncle were both in their teens and taught me about hip-hop when I was little. My first taste was when I was given "license to ill" on cassette. Fell in love. My first cd was naught by nature.

    Cool-blue Rhythm

    This isn't in order but here we go.

    Public enemy, De la soul, Beastie boys, Big pun, Dre dog-Andre Nickatina, Too short, Apathy, Beanie Sigel, MOP, Bone thugs, 2pac, BIG, Busta rhymes, Celph titled, Cam'ron, Styles P, Jadakiss, Crime mob, Cunninlynguists, Cypress Hill, 2-11, 7L-Esteroric, AOTP, Xzibit, Vinnie Paz, Ill bill, Immortal technique, 36mafia, Tech9, Swollen members, Snoop, Dre, Scarface, Run DMC, Eazy e, Racketeer influenced, Pastor Troy, Nas, Kammurda, JMT, Ice cube, Gravediggaz, Geto boys, Dead prez, D block, Blac haze, Atmoshpere, Crucial Conflict, Goodie Mob, Ice-t, NWA, Alchemist, Diabolic, Talib Kweli, Killah Priest, Canibus, EPMD, Fat Joe, KRS-one, Mos-Def, RA the rugged man, Shyheim, Ultramagnetic MC's, The Roots, Jay z, Da lench mob, Hieroglyphics, Fugees, Slick Rick, Special Ed, Biz Markie, Rakim, A tribe call quest, Common Sense, Redman, Guru, Gang starr, Kid Capri, Jurassic 5, Delinquent Habit, Deltron 3030, and Grandmaster flash.

    As an aside, I haven't seen many hip-hop acts live - Beastie Boys once, Coolie once , The Roots twice. Damn, The Roots get it done live..saw them both times in their home city of Philly, something about a hip-hop band that can actually play conventional instruments instead of studio produced synth / samples, etc. Old, low res vid from '96:

    In red deserves more than an honorable mention

    Eric B and Rakim are to hip hop what Led Zeppelin is to rock-n-roll, unfortunately their videos are the absolute worst.

    You know what sucks; I had three other people that you should have listed and can't remember them now. That's right, I spent all day thinking, I had to keep checking your list to see if you had listed them. It was rediculous. And now, no clue what I came up with.

    Haha. That song's re-dick-ulous. Every once in a while it will come up in conversation and proceed to get firmly lodged in my brain for a day or two. You have no idea how many weird looks you get when your singing "let me smell your dick" walking through a crowded store. Embarrassing.

    Love hip hop, I have a couple thousand albums. I tend to like the golden age stuff, because I'm from that era, but some of the new stuff is actually really good (some is really bad LOL). I prefer the harder stuff (my all time fave is the wu tang) but enjoy all good hip hop.

    I'm not much for listing random artists but it appears that no one mentioned the blast master KRS-one, IMO the first artist to combine hard beats with conscious lyrics, before that conscious stuff tended to be soft and a lot still is...(edit: hutch mentioned it in his verbal diarrhea post)

    Check out this dude Prodigy. His song Real Power is People. So hard, so perfect. Sorry I can't link. My phone only puts out bad links. But, please do yourself a favor and check it out, especially if you like hard conscious rap, makes Dead Prez and KRS-One look like De La Soul.

    EDIT: here's a link to the video. I don't think it's a good idea to imbed it. Click me.

    Foxy Brown,Missy Elliot, Da Brat, Mary J. Blige, Lauryn Hill, Gunna, Eve, TLC, Rah digga and Jean Grae. The female artist just IDK, they are so few and far between no offense to them.

    Another one that hasn't been mentioned is Naughty-by-nature and Block McCloud

    ^^You mean subconsciously. Hehe.

    Hutch: yeah man, female artists are hard to come by. There's a girl from here named Rhapsody in a group called Kooley High. The group is good. I haven't heard Rhapsody's mixtape Return of the B-Girl but it was produced by 9th Wonder. She's solid and a really nice person(everyone in the group is, though).

    Off topic a bit but if you're into the rap over dubstep sound check out Virus Syndicate. YouTube Talk to Frank. Or just DL their discography.
