@spaceghost, Yes that is very true, His flow is nice he seems very down to earth. Im all for rappers with a voice tryna send a message. Im tired of hearing about money,cars, and hoes
Do you listen to The Underachievers?
@creativenik, Indigoism is the most powerful album i’ve heard in a long time. The whole beast coast movement is a powerful force in hip-hop right now. (Pro Era, Flatbush Zombies, Underachievers, Phony ppl). I like all there music too, especially Joey Bada$$.
@ijesuschrist, if you don’t like this kind of music, why are you in a post discussing the ‘best’ aspects of it? the subject for you should be moot and thus not require your voice
I mean, can’t you just feel the depth of these words the artists are trying to share with the world http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RH76tfDxm7Y
Haha but seriously, each to there own :)
I used to not really enjoy this genre of music, so I asked myself why, and every answer I came up with stemmed from some stereotype i held due to my upbringing and the society around me, So i searched for as many artists as i could, cleared my much loved music from my ipod and loaded solely “rap and hip-hop” music. 2 months later and I feel a little closer to seeing the beauty in everything this worlds got on offer and limiting the hate in me.
If you want to try such a thing, some artists i can reccomend are Sage Francis, K’naan, but more importantly just try anything and everything, leave those preferences in the closet for a while, they can be quite limiting
@ijesuschrist, haha that was my first thought too, but i DO enjoy kid cudi, have you ever heard it? You might enjoy it, he not REALLY a rapper
try this one… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1tR5yVwiRto
and I believe this one is about popping hallucinogens (or maybe sex)…http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PoapG_5w8kY, what do you think
But…to me a good rapper should be defined by their live performances. I saw TI and Ludacris at a festival recently in Atlanta, and it was eye opening, to say the least. I preferred the performance by Florence and the Machine over both of those losers
@creativenik, I’m not big into rap but I really like his flow and he usually has a good message. My only dislike is like a lot of hip hop artists, he uses the word “nigga” as a crutch.
Hippie Flow is what turned me onto him, not much of a message, but his flow is killer on it. :]
For me it’s not always the ones you see on the T.V constantly flashing their cash like confetti no..for me i like the underground rappers, the ones that you probably don’t get to hear so often but have so much to offer and say consciously with flashing the cash…i heard one rapper and he just killed it wrapped up and delivered what a real rapper should be all about..Papoose..now that’s a true! Rap Artist.
