I'm serious . I know there's got to be some good out there.
MOVITS! Now on iTunes/Amazon! on MySpace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Downloads
EDIT: couldn't get the damn youtube embed to work.
I normally hate rap, but I love Movits. I guess they're more of like jazz/swing/rap, but whatever. I bought their album today and I'm loving it. The music in the background actually has some composition to it instead of just a single beat being played under some lame samples like radio-rap.
They were on the Colbert Report the other night.
wow, that's really cool What makes it really cool is that i can't understand a word they're saying
Of course i'm kickn' it old school here.
My favorites are the Death Row era, so Ice Cube, Dre, and Snoop are obvious. Past that, Busta Rhymes' 'When Disaster Strikes' is amazing, his first few records were.
DMX. Eminems first two records (What the fuck happened after that, Marshal?) Public Enemy of course. Buck 65's early work was great for a white canadian.
Bonethugz n Harmony
Del Tha Funky Homosapien
MC Chris (nerdy content)
IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY BITCH!! (MC Chris)
Might as well ad AZ to the mix while you're at it ( find the song "Sugar Hill). MC Lyte and Busta Rhymes
I really like Akala, I think he's great.
Boogie Down Productions
Mostly older stuff
Makaveli- The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory
Cypress Hill- Black Sunday
House Of Pain (Fine Malt Lyrics)
B.I.G.- Ready To DIE
Beastie Boys- Paul's Boutique
Immortal Technique, one of the best out there IMO.
I'm mostly into the older-type stuff, I'm just a bigger fan of it personally. So for that type, I'll recommend A Tribe Called Quest (The Low End Theory), De La Soul (3 Feet High and Rising), Ghostface Killah (get Supreme Clientele and Fishscales), GZA (get Liquid Swords), Madlib (Shades of Blue), Madvillian (Madvillainy), MF Doom (MM.. Food), Mos Def (Black on Both Sides), The Roots (Do You Want More?!?!?!!, Illadelph Halflife, and Things Fall Apart), Nas (Illmatic) and The Wu-Tang Clan (36 Chambers).
If you're into newer stuff, Doomtree, Deltron 3030, Del Tha Funkee Homosapien, P.O.S., Immortal Technique, Copywrite, CunninLynguists are particularly good.
Some of my favorite hip-hop artists / albums:
DMX's first album (phenomenal, really) - It's Dark and Hell is Hot
NAS - I am
Notorious BIG - Life After Death
Eminem's first 2 albums
Anything by Mystikal ( he had a few albums out already before he got big )
Cool Kids & Clipse
Jedi Mind Tricks
Also, check out Lil Wayne's 3rd mixtape, Da Drought 3. It's all freestyle and I like it a lot better personally than his commercial shit.
to all the guys who love real rap and not this new shit.
Jedi Mind Tricks has been the only group that i have ever heard and been impressed.
Thats is the only recomendation i can give.
I think Rap is way to full of trash to really care about.
