I was never really a fan of the 'poppy' East coast sound.
I'm talking about before those names came on the scene. Besides Gangstarr, Nas, Wu, Boot Camp, Mobb, CNN, ect came out around 93-94.

And De La Soul were not poppy, have you ever listened to there lyrics. Kid N Play, Fresh Prince and Kwame were poppy

Leaders were 2nd tier with Black Sheep and Das EFX. Still better than anything today. I liked Mone in the Middle.

Well, perhaps we have a different definition of poppy. For me, the majority of De La's and Tribe's music was a lot lighter/poppier than the gritty east coast style that was popular at the time. Not saying it's better or worse, just different, and not my particular taste.

Okay, then what word would you use to describe the difference between De La Soul and Mobb Deep?

No use arguing over semantics as long as you understand they are different sounds.

Some people don't like "preachy rap" and I can understand that. But Plug One's lyrics? He gotta be one of the most clever with the wordplay without being complex for the sake pf complexity.

Cool, well whatever you want to call it, I always preferred east coast "thug" music, or "lots of things mixed together" music, over whatever you want to call De La Soul or Tribe.

Mobb Deep is street hip hop.
De La Soul is more what would you call it, political hip hop I guess.

Kid N' Play is Poppy Hip-Hop.

That's their best album IMO. Never been a big De La fan.

Please - Mobb Deep ain't street. They stay inside when it's thundering outdoors scared and write sweet songs about quite storms and how they gotta "get away" ... they're always like "OK, Havoc, I don't have ballet today, but I can still put on that tutu and break you off a little" *rolls eyes up and down Havoc's chocolate body*

Havoc says, "my temperature's rising" ... and that one day a rapper named Eminem will be a huge fan of Infamous, he'll want to sample Shook Ones. and speaking of shooked ones, pull out that male ballerina deek"

Ya'll into some supposed "street" rappers but you pull up they skirts and you see yeah, they might have a penis, but it's personally intended for male booty holes burning desires from keep within the user's heart of hearts. He likes to cuddle with wood.
