So I've been noticing that there are in fact folks around here who do listen to hip-hop and aren't ashamed to admit it. I personally have been listening to it since the beginning of this year. As of right now, I own

Public Enemy: It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back
Eric B. & Rakim: Paid In Full
The Beastie Boys: Paul's Boutique

So far, all three of these own. I've been using the top twenty list at Digitaldreamdoor.com as a buyer's guide. I'm sticking strictly to the classics at this point. I have no interest in Eminem's Triumph the Insult Comic Dog impersonations or Fergie's sorry excuses to get ladies on the dance floor.

So, yea... start talkin.

Rakim isn't vulgar, or at least Paid In Full isn't.

And I am, whatever you say I am
If I wasn't, then why would I say I am, 2000

I'm the R, the A, to the K-I-M
If I wasn't then why would I say I am, 1987

I think Eminem's real-life lyrics are very good but his run-of-the-mill "yo bitch" lyrics are as detestable as the entire rap scene. But songs like "Stan" show that Eminem's a fairly brilliant guy.

These days, the only hip-hop I listen to is Beastie Boys and Lady Sovereign, who's a 19 year old white British girl who just so happens to be one of the best and most interesting rappers around.

Eminem has some brilliant, powerful shit, but before he knew it MTV had him by the balls and he just kept putting out those garbage novelty, "funny" songs.

Yeah, but he has his moments. Stuff about his daughter, though I can't recall any titles, is always particularly moving. And what was that song with Dido? That one was great too.

Hah, I just remembered that it was. So yes, songs that are more emotional by Eminem are quite good.

The songs about his daughter were really touching at first, but after a while he started putting more than one on every album, and it got old. Some of my favorite songs were on "The Eminem Show," especially "Till I Collapse." That song is heavy as shit.

Of course, ain't no white boy who's got shit on the Beasties. "The Patty Duke, the wrench, and then I bust the tango/ Got more rhymes than Jamaica got mangoes!"

I was listening to that song earlier, but I can't remember what it was, I'll guess it was...Shake Your Rump?

I love rap up until 94 after that it all began to sound the same, but I love N.W.A, Beastie Boys, Run DMC, LL Cool J, Ice Cube (I'm going to put predator on in few minutes), The Ghetto Boys, Public Enemy, some Dr. Dre, some Jay-Z, Snoop Doggy Dogg. I will say right now that I think Puff Daddy or Diddy or what ever the fuck his name is this week is the most talent less person ever to make it in the music business. I

allow me to read off the hip-hop tapes that my WHITE, ex-cop grandpa has on his shelf:

Public Enemy, Snoop Doggy Dogg, the Two Live Crew, Salt N Pepa, Technotronic, MC Hammer, Coolio, Vanilla Ice, Bobby Brown, Tag Team, Milli Vanilli etc..

Plus, his coworker stole his sons CDs, so my Grandpa has them all.......featuring:
Master P, Pastor Troy, Lil Wayne, Mobb Deep, Three Six Mafia, Tupac, etc.

And he told me he went to a Vanilla Ice and MC Hammer show :eyes:

Thank God For Metal

Contemporary underground hip hop > contemporary underground metal

Here's what I've been listening to and loving the last couple of weeks:

The Coup - Steal This Double Album
The Roots - Game Theory
Talib Kweli - Quality

These three albums are absolutely amazing hip hop records -- brilliant rhymes, great music (especially The Roots, who play "real" instruments), and far more personally and socially conscious than anything you get from radio or MTV.

I do really like the old school hip hop. Certainly owns any of the drivel you get these days. NWA really are just immense, after hearing them you lol at the 'gangsta' shit like The Game, Onyx and all you see these days. Also Run DMC, Eminem, Snoop Dogg are quite good for a wee listen.

But Public Enemy are easily teh best. Their first 3 albums are just too good. And I would reccomend going to see them live if you like them or old school hip. Put on a great show of over 2 hours, a great set with all teh songs you wanna hear (Unlike some (*COUGH* MAIDEN*COUGH*) and with 10 members onstage it cant go wrong.
