the 2 cd limited edition of lil jon's crunk juice is a must.
the 2nd remix cd is Tha BOMB!!

also just ordered Lil Flip's 'houston we have a problem' 2 cd mixtape...
his 45 'sunshine' with Lia was 1 of the top anthems of summer 2004,

thanks for this topic:


hip hop:

Murs
Mr. Lif -- great boston artist (yeah boston!)
Gang Starr -- you do NOT know good hip-hop if you havent heard their song Skillz
Mos Def -- Black on Both Sides is a classic album
Talib Kweli -- a perennial favorite...proves that intelligent rap is not an oxymoron
Common -- beautiful voice
Dizzee Rascal -- new fave of mine....strange at first, but addictive

and of course:
snoop, dre and ice cube...consistently good

Love the search tool, love. <g>

Mr Lif is awesome, and I've got nothing but love for Beantown. I saw him with El-P a few years ago and it was amazing --- + Def Jux operates out of Oakland. Bay Area... ::thumps chest::

"Intelligent" hip hop is such a must, and it breaks my heart everytime I hear smone orate, "I love everything, really, except for ... rap."

Talib Kweli and Hi Tek - Reflection Eternal
Mos Def and Talib Kweli - Black Star (God, K.O.S Determination..)
Mos Def - Black on both sides (Ms. Fat Booty! Love.. Umi says..)
Common - Resurrection.. I've heard the new album is fantastic,but I don't have it yet.
Federation - the Album (Bay Area! "and i'm so california like khakis with no shoes." - from So Dumb.. )
The Coup - Steal this double album
Ugly Ducklings - Journey to Anywhere (Pick up lines)
Prefuse 73 - Vocal Studies and uprock narratives
Pete Rock and CL Smooth - Mecca and the Soul Brother
Nas - Streets Disciple (Coon picnic, remember the times, makings of a perfect b*tch)
MF Doom -
J5 - quality control, power in numbers
Geto Boys - greatest hits. ;p
Aesop Rock - Labor Days (Dayliiiiiight, Labor Labor)
Atmosphere - God loves ugly (Modern Man's Hustle)
Clipse - Lord Willin' (Cot Damn)
DJ Z trip and DJ P - Uneasy Listening Vol 1 (megafresh b-boy body rocking..)
DJ Shadow -
DJ Greenlantern - NY State of Mind

God. So much more -- the catchy, trashy singles? XD

you think? why is that? have you heard of latryx or heiruspecs? heiruspecs is on the label rhymesayers out of minneapolis...this part of the midwest has a really healthy hip hop scene...a lot of it is unslick and raw and some of it is influenced by metal.

i also love a lot of the stuff coming out of stone throw records--old and new. for those who like quasimoto/madlib, mf doom...you should check out the dvd/ cd
they have called stone throw 101. it has a lot of old school stuff...classic videos.

^ Yeah, there's definitely a big crop of independent/'underground' hip hop that is just phenomenal. I had latryx for awhile, but I never gave them a proper listen.. Should I revisit after all? Quasimoto - the unseen was inapprorpriately left off my list up there.. So much for just scrolling through my ipodmini. ;p

Well, here's MF Doom on the subj of current music:
Quote:
Earlier you mentioned that you weren't really feeling a lot of stuff these days. Last question: who isn't wack?

There's a couple people who ain't wack. Madlib ain't wack. Pete Rock ain't wack; that's my niga. Premo aint' wack. Guru ain't wack. The whole Wu is dope. Who else is not wack? Nas, he do his thing. Even the other genres 'Kelis, she a good friend of mine, I love her music. This dude Kurt Elling, a jazz singer, he's ill, he's not wack, his music inspires me a lot too. Diane Reeves is a woman vocalist, she's not wack. It's like we're all kind of the same age, I look at what they're doing. Who else is not wack? Kurious he's not wack, he need to comeback. Talib ain't wack. Mos Def ain't wack. The whole Spitkicker crew ain't wack. My Rhymesayers fam ain't wack either. Everybody else is wack. (cackles)
I also like the part in that interview where he mentions the security guards at JFK who have stopped hassling him despite the mask. Ha!

awesome czilla! thanks for that. anyways i always feel like my music taste is a couple years behind for some reason. latryx is good because i think it sounds old school...but i also like some electronic/ hip hop stuff as well..mostly because they both are rooted in good beats and melodies. and the roots are amazing--things fall apart with always be up there. i think latryx is out of cali...i don't know about the scene out there expect that stone throw records is from there right?

Yes ive heard of the heiruspecs their pretty good
Im also digging cLOUDEAD and the beatnigs right now too
i think it was a general statement i made about modern hip/hop....."mainstream" hip hop...underground will always be provacative and on edge...my concern is with the mainstream
have you guys heard of the disposable heroes of hiphoprisy? are they pretty sweet?
