PostSubject: US rap   US rap Icon_minitimeFri Jun 22, 2018 10:14 am

A young and very talented musician told me he wants to discovered US rap (he is learning English, only knew Spanish rap before). I told him I'd make him a good list, maybe you all can help.

I already recommended Biggy, Tupac, NWA, Wu Tang Clan, Mob Deep and NAS, who I consider the absolutely essencials. And Inmortal Technique, I'd like to recommended some really good ones who aren't well known.

Some otjhers:

Ganksta NIP
Schooly D
Oldschool Jay Z
Eazy E sólo


There are very many. Any input is appreciated.

I assume you want to stay away from Public Enemy for their politics.
Maybe some instrumentals from them, some beats are truly classic, few rappers wouldn't know them. The guy who made them is called Terminator X.

Kanye, Snoop... Snoop is king of rap, when he is onstage he kills it without effort, rap incarnate,
his history is the realest, his fellow gangsters pushed him out of crime to make music for them, a true bard. Bards in politics are always a bad idea, Im not defending any of that crap but he remains the guy in rap who will light up a place most effectively.

The Defiant Ones has a clip of Snoop in the studio with Dre for the first time, or one of the first times, thats almost scrary in rawness, he was unpolished then, his eyes pure darkness and completely cranked on strong weed as it does when you're 19, still cold as ice. He warmed up of course with all the recognition, and now he wants to be political but he isn't from Chicago. He said 'all my niggas and my bitches' and all the wold wants to be called nigga or bitch. A list cant leave him out. One of the few rappers that 2Pac could still look up to. One of the few that he never fucked with.

GNN was pretty awesome few time's I watched it.

Great list so far. This kid couldn't recieve a finer education.

Wow MF Doom I'd forgot. Hm. Maybe later.

Maybe some Gorillaz.

Also later: grime.

I had heard it in dubstep thinking it was recorded for that purpose but a guy in rehab showed me tje original stuff. Powerful stuff. One of few músics I don't allow myself to listen to anymore.

Hmm... Can't find any good grime. And there's a lot. I wish I were in touch with that guy, he had the scoop.

LL Cool J

"I'm blasting, outlasting
Kinda like Shaft, so you could say I'm shafting
Olde English filled my mind
And I came up with a funky rhyme"

He writes really good meters.

"Uh, every step I take shakes the ground
I'll make you break your ankles, son, shakes you down
This is my planet, I'm 'bout business
The best that ever done it, can I get a witness, uh? (no doubt, uh)
Cumulus clouds bring darkness up above
You in it for the money, or in it for the love, M.J.?
23 ways to make a pay
Lounging in the mothership back around my way, uh (uh)"

I remember this Lauryn Hill album being surprisingly good.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lGCtAzYNwZ4

its still gonna be just ok. salt N pepa is better.

Beyonce can rap, on the occasions where she raps.

Drakes smallness is painfully evident in "gods plan" which I just tried.
fucking sad how the biggest players live nowadays.

Method Mans Tical is legendary.



- is there a snake n my garden, starvin

The sequel featured Trump.

The craziest rap on the Gravediggaz album I find to be this part by a guy called Omen.

https://youtu.be/J6U_gnGUsFI?t=4m10s

My Cousin admired Masta Killa most of all out Wu Tang.

Whoa shit - the end of this
