I don't really listen to too much rap or hip-hop, but I really like the group CYNE and after hearing one of the songs in this thread, CunninLynguists. Probably my favourite CYNE song. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qr1KON-K-Kk[/media]
[QUOTE=Captain Lawlrus;27724883]You can sing on a hip-hop track, but hip-hop =/= singing, and this thread is about hip-hop[/QUOTE] This just seems wrong. I can't really put into words why, but it just feels wrong. Hip-hop is WAY more than rapping, son.
I've been listening to Curren$y lately, he is a guy who knows how to make smooth, enjoyable music about topics we can at least sort of relate to some times.
Anyone here like REAL rap here? i.e. Biggie Smalls, Eazy-E, Big L, etc.

Pathetic.

those were really popular artists too, how can you criticize people for looking at charts
[QUOTE=pika;27783768]Better than the new shit today...people in present day don't know what the hell is good anymore, but rather just look at the top of the iTunes chart for which songs to download.

[QUOTE=SilverHammer;27801375]I know right? Paid Dues always has shitloads of talent on their bills[/QUOTE] Man, I had no idea how great their lineup was. That's really impressive. And only 50$ for tickets... This is just another reason I wish I lived in California.
They seem to be getting more and more people on the bill with each year just peep the line-ups from the last couple of years: [media]http://radiofuturamusic.com/blg/wp-content/uploads/2010/02/PaidDues500_1000.jpg[/media] [media]http://www.prohiphop.com/images/graf/paiddues2009.jpg[/media] [media]http://inversehiphop.files.wordpress.com/2008/03/pd_1.jpg[/media]
Yeah, it's definitely getting bigger. But each different year has people I really want to see. 2009, especially: Atmosphere, Brother Ali and Eyedea and Abilities all together would have been great. One day I'm going to go to one of these. Have you been?
Nah i'm definitely gonna try to make it to this year's show though. My bro went to the '09 show, I really gotta ask him how it was [editline]1st February 2011[/editline] Another unrelated note If you like Gangstarr check this out: [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3S5T705CgKY[/media]

im making a cd called "prison yard workout" help me pick somewhat clean (for in school) classic rap and hiphop tracks
[QUOTE=nono345;27838748]im making a cd called "prison yard workout" help me pick somewhat clean (for in school) classic rap and hiphop tracks[/QUOTE] What exactly do you mean by prison yard workout? What type of songs are you looking for?
Why are you calling it prison yard workout if your asking for clean rap you can play in school? haha
I'd think of Prison yard hip-hop to be like DMX 'I'll rape your dead body you *expletive deleted* and then I'll *expletive deleted* your *expletive deleted* whilst all the other *expletive deleted* all be runnin' and cryin' like little *expletive deleted* you *expletive deleted*'
