Biggie you have taste....

 

Shook ones is a favorite and anything Tribe Called Quest is a massive winner.

 

stumbled across the old Outkast stankonia cd today which isnt half bad.... and KRS-ONE- temple of hip hop compilation which is pretty impressive.

Here ya go.

APATHY 'WANNA SNUGGLE' 09 apathy-wanna-snuggle-album-cover.jpgawsome true school MC, solid album, on some more mature ish than previous freestyle albums etc.

 

If you never heard of BRAINTAX from UK, check out his album 'BIROFUNK' 220px-Braintax_BiroFunk_albumcover.jpgfair few years old now, but a timeless hiphop album.

 

Also UK HUSTLERS0.jpg,

 

PHI-LIFE CYPHER 'HIGHER FORCES' 2.jpgone of my fav, plus there previous album 'MILLENIUM METAPHORES' a-b-c-.jpg?ts=20110426from 2000 but timeless no doubt.

 

Not to mention LIFE MC, from (Phi-Life Cypher) Peep this album from 'OUTSIDE LOOKING IN' Life-Outside_Looking_In_b%5B1%5D.jpgDJ nappa on production is always on some dope shit.

 

One below 'SONOGRAM' 51pr33Uc41L._AA240_.jpgawsome album.

 

THE ROOTS' THINGS FALL APART' 517kUI8JE3L._SL500_AA300_.jpgfrom way back now, but a classic HipHop Album if you never heard.

 

Sooo much more but there's a taste.

 

No commercial played out bullshit here, only true school Hiphop artists. Get on the real shit, you wont look back.

ill be honest im still listening to the same shit i was 5 years ago.

same here, new stuff sucks balls

 

:doh:

 

I'm still bumping alot of old school shit.

It's what i first listened to when i got into hiphop.

 

Company Flow

Rawkus artists

Del

Heiro

Souls of Mishief

Casual

Aceyalone

AI

WuTang

Pharcyde

Living Legends

Grouch

Dougie Fresh

Kool and The Gang

 

rah rah...

 

There are still amazing artists today. The game's just different.

Time influences style, if anything - in alot of ways most everything now is garbage because of the mainstream appeal.

Plenty of burner underground groups and solo emcees though.

 

DZK IS GOD.

 

Find me a better rapper.

the problem is all the best rappers are dead.

 

I basically only listen to dead dudes, weird.

Doesn't appeal to me they don't have the raw appeal the 90s rappers had, mwa, cube, dre, snoop, big, 2pac, etc

You have no idea. Ghey shit. Rap is dead

Deal with it

Fair enough hiphop isn't dead though. You can't say I have no idea when you state that "If your not a criminal, your just a phoney".
