Excellent list, anyone here an OddFuture fan?

Physco, not really heard a lot of their stuff.

I like Tech n9nes Am I A Physco that they are on.

I am a bit stick in the 90s to be honest.

Best album I ever purchased was Born To Do It by Craig David.

I've never purchased Thriller but rumour has it that it's amazing!!

Not a fan then?

I have thousands of albums Aus. Not all rap of course, but the majority are.

Still got things like Follow The Leader, Great Adventures Of Slick Rick etc on tape, and a few vinyls as well (3 Feet High And Rising, Straight Outta Compton).
Some albums I have bought 3 times, vinyl, cassette and CD!

not a big fan of rap - appreciate the skill though

just get bored of hearing the same lines about money, jewellery, women and how great the rapper is..... its pretty tedious. But i am not expert and you will tell me differently.

more of a hardcore punk/metal fan myself

I agree with you, i only listen to rap music that isn't all about ass and money. Gets on my nerves.

Same here, I cant stand modern rap these days. Only like OddFuture cos they're abit different. The only modern music i listen to is drum n bass/dubstep.

Could I ask how old you are? Not in a rude way, but this is how I've begun to feel about rap/ hip hop. But I believe it's only since the lateish 90's that it's been like that. Tupac on the otherhand

90's Rap>>>>>>

I am 37

as i said i appreciate the skill and some stuff id clever and i like the samples Dr Dre used on his 2000? album

but generally listening to a young person telling me how great they are, how many girls they have and what car they drive is just boring.

I love the passion and emotion in metal and punk.

if anyone is interested i will recommend some band....

Yeah, only real great rappers over the past 10 years have been Jay-Z and Em. It's a shame it's become all washed out, just doesn't have a buzz any more.

Plus they really need to change the music videos now, seriously there's only so many times you can use skantily clad women, supercars and some complete idiot throwing money around!

I actually prefer the UK grime scene now Kano, Wiley, Skepta etc. and also some of Tinie Tempah's older stuff. Plus we've got some good producers coming through

posted on 17/3/12

Yeah, I was talking about the mainstream US stuff. But I agree for the UK, things are looking really good. Probably have more talented artists than ever.

i agree about how hip hop/'rap has taken a nosedive in the last few years, I'm only 26 myself but i grew up listening to the likes of 2PAC, Snoop dog in his prime, EMINEM, Dre etc.....those were the days when hip hop was at it's best. It reached a level when 50 cent came onto the scene and once 50 cent started to die out so did Hip hop, don't really listen to it anymore

Weezy is the best rapper ever.

Lucas, I understand your point of view. A lot of it is bravado and is dull.

But there are a lot of more creative acts out there. Outkast are one of the best, especially their first 2 or 3 albums.
Tha Pharcyde lyrics are a mixture of comedic, self awareness and social comment. Try Bizarre Ride To Tha Pharyde and ATLiens out.

Loads of others too, but most of what is put on the radio/MTV is either party rap or fake gangsters with little to say, sadly.


Not really into UK. London Posse/Rodney P, Roots Manuva, Skinnyman and a couple of others is pretty much all I do.

2Pac and Biggies deaths pretty much killed hip-hop.
The singing rappers like 50 and Nelly came out on top after that. Lyrics took a backseat to catchy choruses.
