HIP HOP THREAD

Recommended Posts

So let's talk about hip hop. Exchange music. debate about hip-hop (in a civil fashion) And discuss hip hop culture, and it's implications for society and the mini society of debate. I promise you will find at least 1 new song as I start you off with some old southern rap, and give you an interesting article. 

 

MEMPHIS BUMPS (UNDERGROUND)

Lately I've been reminding myself of how awesome "Mos Def & Talib Kweli Are Black Star" is - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GjxtRehIz2Y

 

Mos Def in general is just amazing - http://http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vwjwKPXy4sg

 

Deltron 3030 is back; the resurrection was less glorious than I hoped but it's still some really great stuff - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Th9TQZRpas4

 

I started listening to this indie dude Milo, his albums are free at miloraps.com, but his tracks are so light and mellow, check it out - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJBMoBByYyo he also throws references to Heidegger and Rage Against the Machine and Cousteau and Hegel, it's like handing a phil major a mike but it all turns out great in the end.

YES DELTRON!!! I saw him live in April, if you ever have the chance I would highly recommend it, the only headlining hip-hop artist that I would put on his level live would be Action Bronson. 

 

Do doubt Mos Def is amazing. If your into that lyrical new york shit, this young guy from brooklyn's been killin it, this is his debut and uses i think a remi ma beat and something else. he's gay also, kinda subversive.

goddamn, i'm jealous, that sounds phenomenal. I had a chance to see Action Bronson live at Free Press Summer Fest last summer but my friends and I got there too late to catch any of the hip hop artists (Action was there, so was 2 Chainz, Geto Boys, Devin the Dude, Macklemore, and a few more) - didn't get to catch any of 'em :(

 

Never heard of Cakes before but that was great, I'll check him out some more too.

That sucks man. It's happened to me before (albeit it was because i was shoved toward the back during a wu-tang concert and couldn't appreciate it) 

 

Anyway in the spirit of this thread here are some more songs that are (semi) worthwhile for hip-hop fans

 

DJ PAUL (YES THAT DJ PAUL) before he had industry recognition
