Ok so apparently I'm not the only rap fan here. Thanks again to Oz for showing me this thread.

Aw Nate Dogg was the last post. Sucks he died, he was good. Thug Mansion with him and 2pac is a good song.

Anyway I don't know if anyones seen me mention this......but I love Tech N9ne lol. Best rapper in the game right now. His new album is coming out June 6. I highly recommend him to anyone who likes rap.

Sorry, no. Though some old school rap/hip-hop is ok (love Body Count), 99% of it, especially nowadays, is repetitive and annoying. Same beats ALL the time. Little in the way of clever or intelligent lyrics. Anyone who's read Dr. Suess and has the right computer software and 2 hours of spare time can make a modern rap/hip-hop song. No artistry or musicianship required. And live performances? Please. I can't count how many of these so-called "artists" I've seen actually just sing along on stage to their own recorded track, and not even sing half of it themselves! To me that's worse than lip-syncing.

I know how you feel Crushem. But that's why I'm such a big Tech N9ne fan. He's a master MC and a great lyricist. The beats that he chooses are seem unique and the some of the guys he's chosen as producers of his beats got their start from him, like Michael Seven Summers. He can also really entertain a crowd. His concerts are great.
His lyrics make a lot of sense and he's really great at telling stories in his music. The Waitress is a good example of that. Plus he actually sings his stuff during his shows.

Haha! You think I'm bad with music, you should go to the movies with me!

Oz, did you just ask Nh out?

Crushem, you're absolutely right.
Programs like Pro Tools and Cubase (probably Logic as well) come with drum machines / beats that can be heard all over the recent Hip-hop releases. And since there's this simplified style in Hip-Hop / R&B going on now, recording all that crap couldn't be easier.

There's something about it that's so.... pathetic. Music made based on templates.

well woflie, at least oz being a gentleman.

May 20, 2011 12:11 PM ET #89 (permalink)

Absolutely, Nh. Then again, I'd expect nothing less...

Just been to see the legendary Grandmaster Flash. Alot of fun and my legs hurt from bouncing so much, but I was hoping for alot more of his own stuff.

Just watched a pretty sweet program called How Hip Hop Changed The World, which was presented by Idris Elba (The Wire, Rock 'N Rolla, Thor amongst other things). It was more of a countdown of most important moments in the genre that what it said on the tin, but it was interesting to see how stuff like marketing and art was changed forever by Hip Hop. Check it out if you can find it online.
