Horus Ex Machina

A thread about hiphop...

Recommended Posts

Throw in the fact that a guy like Apathy, who could lyrically destroy anyone of these popular guys, probably isn't heard of by 99% of those fans makes me laugh.

Also, I have Sirius satellite radio and they do have an old school rap station called Backspin that plays 90's and before, it's pretty good.

Old School trumps so hard it's not even funny. Maybe I'm just old, but it seems like it has been ages since I heard a new joint that can compare favorably to even mediocre old school.

Hip-hop has absolutely become more generic, at least in the mainstream. People hyping Drake and Wayne up as "all time greats" ruining it for people was exactly my point. I don't compare them to the all time greats though, I just enjoy the music for what it is. I don't like Wayne at all, I think Drake is pretty decent though.

J. Cole

Kendrick Lamar

Ab-Soul

Earl Swatshirt

Schoolboy Q

Yelawolf

(Asap Rocky)

Jay Rock

Tech N9ne

I like some ASAP Rocky and Tech 9, but the only other artist I'm really familiar with on your list is J Cole. Have to say I'm not real fond of his radio stuff, but I haven't checked out any of his more obscure stuff. Thanks for the reccomendations. I will definitely check them out.

check out his mixtape "Friday Night Lights" it's his best IMO

Just for the record I have not and will not ever compare Drake to the likes of Tupac and Biggie, all I'm trying to say is that he's alot better than people give him credit for, and he is by no means "generic". I am not a fan of Lil Wayne in the slightest btw.



Also I'm a 90's baby so I grew up with the generation that listened to 50 cent, who I believe doesn't get the credit he deserves, I mean "Get Rich or Die Tryin" has to be one of the best hip-hop debut albums of all time.

Currensy

Hopsin

Childish Gambino

I really fell in love with Hopsin and Gambino over the summer. Although recently Donald Glover has been a broody hipster.

But I find that to be interesting. I don't like hipsters but it brings a different vibe also he is lyrically gifted. I don't like all his tracks though I find some very bad but others excellent.

J. Cole and Kendrick are dropping a collab album by the way. I'm hyped as fuck and I think it will be great if it will be like this

Yeah I still love most of his songs. I can't really stand the earlier stuff he did with the nasally voice, but Culdesac, Camp and Royalty I found pretty solid. 3005 is a good song too.

andrew, I was in high school when 50's first album came out, but both my parents listen to hip hop, so I was exposed to a lot of older stuff and not just what was popular then.

I'm not a fan of Hopsin really. I mean I guess he's decent talent-wise but the whole reason he's well known at all is that he constantly disses people who are more famous than him.



That just makes me lose interest in him really quickly.

Fiddy's first album was crazy. I remember thinking, damn, Dre discovered some talent from tha South. I always liked that about him. It's ironic that he always beefed with Game who sounded like he was from the East Coast.

Damn, here I am talking about them like they're already dead...

I know. He's a New Yorker but he sounds Southern, and he sips DP til tha Don stops bubblin.

Dre did the same thing with Em when he first came up. Em sounds drastically different from how he sounded on Infinite. Eminem was trying to sound East Coast like Nas or AZ before signing with Dre. I think they got 50 to embrace a Southern style of delivery since the south was just starting to take over the industry when he came around.
