    I'm trying to decide if I want to bring Busdriver into the discussion because I honestly can't stand him or anything he's done but he is kinda the Frank Zappa of hip hop.

    Homebody Sandman?

    Thanks Trev. I've heard of Dizzee Rascal and didn't care for him. I'll check out a few of these others.


    Yeah a few of these are gonna be REAL WEIRD
    Death Grips is like getting punched in the ear but its strangely addictive


    Weird I like, so long as it's competently done.

  • Alright, thanks Zeb. the POS track was just ok. Didn't do much for me. I like the Chicharones a lot, very interesting. i REALLY liked that Homeboy Sandman track. As for the Greyskul, 6/8's not bad, and I like the syncopation on it, not falling into the compound 2/4 (two groups of triplets) trap. I found the rhyme/lyrics to be kinda weak though, in my opinion.


    Very cool though. thanks for sharing. Keep 'em coming, if you have time.

  • I can't think of anything really weird that I don't absolutely hate right now and I won't post something I hate haha. If you want, google Busdriver. I won't cosign it as good but I will say he does some really trippy out there shit. Most people love or hate it.

    I never called him a bitch bruh don't get it twisted. All I said was the videos he posted, those songs will not make my playlist. If you consider that me saying his taste in music is shit then so be it but it never came out my mouth or anything I typed. Like I said a few times we all have different tastes. I'm not a follower like you just cause I don't like the same songs he likes doesn't mean I am ripping him as a person. Zeb seems like a kool fella, we just seem to have different taste in hip hop just like me and you...

    Haha, okay, garbage was an overreaction. I just feel he falls into the Meek Mill/Kid Ink/Wiz group for not much substance in their music and just talk about money, girls, etc. It all sounds good and flows well but I just can't really get into it.

    And c'mon, I've only posted two Wayne songs! lol although I agree Wayne has gone into the lyrical 'rich rapper' category for the most part which I don't like. That's why I really like anything Childish puts out cause it's creative and tells a story.

    Oh, and Flo Rida is the best in the game right now :lol: :sarcasm_off:

  • I would be interested in hearing an example of some of Ace Hood's more lyrical material because what I heard up ^^there^^ in ^^that^^ song was about as boring, predictable and run of the mill as it comes. I record people who say the same things he said in that song every single day. Not impressive.

    I used that song as a joke, but I will bump the hell outta it.

    the Dec 31st song TO ME shows it pretty well, then again I"m not much into looking into straight up lyrics, usually if a rapper has a dope flow I'll get into it

    but theres this



    annd this



    To each their own though, I gravitate more to flow and presence moreso than just lyrics.

    This is the newest video from my dudes Th3rdz. Not that this is a grand example of lyricism, although all 3 of these dudes are capable of it. But still some good dudes from the town making good music IMO.

    J. Earle - Top of the World
    J. Earle - Go Hard part 2
    J. Earle - Eyes Wide Shut
    And just cuz... who the F samples Journey? It works though. J. Earle - In The Sky

    This is a great thread. I've totally gotten back up to speed with Hip Hop just checking out everyone's picks. Thanks all! I don't feel quite so old and out of touch anymore! :th2thumbs:

    This is a great thread. I've totally gotten back up to speed with Hip Hop just checking out everyone's picks. Thanks all! I don't feel quite so old and out of touch anymore! :th2thumbs:


    I likes the In The Sky song.


    Yeah, it's pretty good. I like the Go Hard song; makes me want to hit somebody or like... do nunchucks really fast.

    So you're admitting I'm a celeb...
