All we'd have to do is erect large speakers on our aircraft carriers, park along China's shore, crank this for all of China to hear and yell "what!?"

    For new school I really dig and support Blue Scholars and Atmosphere. Big K.R.I.T. is pretty entertaining, along with J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar.

    Geo from Blue Scholars and Bambu's album "Walk Into a Bar" was dope.

    He's actually from Mississippi, but there's a HUGE kind of 90's Houston & Memphis vibe in his music, like UGK, 8 Ball & MJG.

    Speaking of Memphis...

  • To me, hip hop's golden age was from about 88 to 97. There's been great stuff made since then (and before, obvs) but those years were the most consistent, 91-94 being the real heart of it, IMO. Where the "new school" really turned into the actual new school. And then Puffy and Master P ruined everything, riding Big and Pac's coattails.

    I think 80's hip hop had the most soul, but the skills that were developed over the 90's and 00's is far superior. I actually think these kids doing it right now are more talented rappers by far than we've ever seen, they're just too occupied with making sure they look cool to actually put any real effort into it. It's more important to look like you're hardly even trying than it is to actually do it to the best of your ability. (#swag) It's kind of sickening but whatever, I'm old.

    I agree with all of this.


    To me Rap/hip-hop should be poetry with a purpose, not ranting and raving about cars or popping bottles. Not that there is anything wrong with that, I personally prefer plenty of substance in the music I listen to.

  • Three 6 Mafia for the win. My bad on KRIT, but, he sure has an ATL vibe, to me anyways.

    Houston's all about Devin though (Geto Boys too, of course).

    I'm kind of bummed there was no support for Camp Lo's Uptown Saturday Night CD. In a snobbier time I wouldn't aknowledge someone as a music lover unless they appreciated that CD. It's a weird outlier for them, because their other stuff stinks really, and I actually saw them at Shorelne Community College 5 years ago. But, no doubt about it, it's sick.

    Camp Lo was tight. We probably did 3 different songs over that Luchini instrumental. Aes Rock did a song with them back in 03.



    Best part for me was at the end of the Luchini video there's a brief snippet of another song off the album called Swing featuring Butterfly from Digable Planets aka Seattle's own Ish from Shabazz Palaces.

  • Camp Lo's odd because that one CD is literally (and figuratively) genius. Then? Nothing, really, they stooped to SCC levels.

    I cant think of other artists, in any genre, who put out 1 genius LP, then followed it up with literally (and figuratively) nothing. Odd, odd, odd.

  • If the performer's voice has no MELODY, than they ain't singing.
    If they're essentially reading poetry, it ain't singing.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but rappers read, not sing. Right?
    So rap is a performance alternative for those who can't carry a tune... right?

  • Rap is part of hip hop. Rapping is not singing. Music is music whether you love it or hate it, whether it's good or bad. People who make music are musicians whether talented or not.

  • If there is accompanying melody, it's definitely music.
    If not, it's spoken poetry, no?

    What element of the set of "hip hop" is absent in rap?

    I plan on allowing Zebski to indoctrinate me on hip hop and rap in the next few years, for which I'll buy him Hamburger @ Mary's, if she's still open.
