Listened to a lot of DLS in high school, because my friends liked them. I was never really a fan of their sound.

Back then, you was either De La, Tribe, Jungle Brothers, Brand Nubian or EPMD.

During that period I listened to a lot of West Coast underground hip-hop. The East coast stuff I listened to was a little more gritty; Wu-Tang, Mobb Deep, Nas, OGC, Boot Camp, CNN, Gangstarr, etc.


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.
