80's rap had no sense of harmony, what are you talking about?

And the Pink Floyd we all know of was not making music in the 80's. Final cut was just wall rejects, and Lapse is sans R.W.

Anyway, he's right as far as musicianship is concerned. 80's shredders blow all current groups away. Songcrafting is prolly debateable.

You're totally off base here. Either you don't know anything about music theory, songwriting, and musicianship or you're not trying too hard.

Excellent songwriters and musicians from the 80's:

Whitesnake
Van Halen
Genesis
Asia
Police
Roxy Music
Wishbone Ash
Foreigner
Journey
Guns N Roses
King Crimson
Motley Crue
Peter Gabriel
Rush
Marillion
U2
Aerosmith
Michael Jackson
Prince
Cure
The Clash
Bowie
The Cars
Huey Lewis
Kansas
SRV
Chili peppers
Wilbury's
George Harrison
Satriani

I'm sure there's plenty more

At the age of seven he was getting gooder at rapping as his dad took him to the studio and letted Lil He listen to his father rap.

That is a sample from that site. I guess the little kid writes his own autobiography. Yeah, rap is getting worse and worse. There's few rappers I will listen to...the south and 50 cent ruined it.

Like someone said on here a while back, rap is one money making corpse. I'll rather be part of a dead money maker than a living broke ass piece of sh!t.

The voices ain't leave yet,
they just gettin' they feet wet
Eyes red, I'm up, ain't been to sleep yet
Damn near two days, ain't even eat yet
If you don't wanna bounce, 'least take a little recess
And still I'm faced with the bull****
Feelin' like Willy D, Scarface and Bushwick
Dog, just when I gather its dead
I gotta knock on wood like Hank Gathers head

When I make small steps toward making it global
My tight knit circle turns into a oval
Filled with motha ****as just pretendin' they know you
These snakes in the grass'll do whatever to coax you
Since they wanna hem you quick
I walk around like a Ginsu's tip
And that's just to get a mental grip
You don't feel what the pencil scripts
Then eight times outta ten you ain't been through ****
When you hear Joe you hear the conviction and diction
That open emotion, devotion is different
Real talk of when he ain't have a pot to piss in
He ain't have a car not one rock to glisten
I'm giving 'em non-fiction,
conning his addictions
Ya'll got the easy job, just listen
I do it for my folk and those of another pigment
A little food for thought, you feelin' malnutrition
But you don't hear a peep outta me
About the black face goin' on and the sheep leadin' sheep
It's deep, so I try to stay grounded like dad
Must be in City Island, I'm surrounded by crabs
Was once tight, grew apart for dollars
Was on the same panel, now he's Starring Barbara
Two different views, two different lifestyles
I think 'long the way one of us got confused
Look, you a hustla, still attracted to the scene
Still doin' **** I gave up at sixteen
You won't get a job, believin' your own lies
You rationalize by sayin' you pursing your dreams
You damn near thirty ***** you ain't got cream
Can't take care of you when you worried 'bout your team
My dude, want a hand out, wait in line
But the clock's still tickin' man you playin' with time,
It's so sweet
Thought I was ****ed up with no shoes 'til I met me a ***** with no feet

Tried to help ******, some ****** I couldn't
That's my mom in me, I love ****** I shouldn't
Dudes wanna shoot 'em 'til he nailed
Some wanna threaten me, ruin my health
Let me teach you a little something 'bout depression
Ain't **** you could do to me I ain't already thought about doing to myself
I'm the voice for the youth that's living with no reason
**** record sales, I give 'em something to believe in
If your day starts in that broken home
Though we never met, 'least they feel like they not alone
Like I was back when I was tryna' find dip
The tsunami came through my hood in nine six
And tried to murder dog,
I took a little dive
Then I got on my surfin board and kept slidin'
Feel like A-Rod, some say his time's up
Boo a ***** at home, yup I'm in my primeBut
he by far the best player on the team
And then turn around, drop 'em to the bottom of the lineup
Should get traded, but he don't wanna move
'Cause this the only city he got somethin' to prove
And that's why I'm seen with heaters
'Cause you can't be the man when you on the same team as Jeter Ya dig,
it's like the game ain't gettin' suitable
Makin' me so sick I need Chicken Noodle Soup
Rappers flyin' high, then got suicidal
Imitate Jim Jones, end up like Cory Lidle

I married hip hop, ignored what some was tellin' me
I started hearin' rumors of infidelity,
I ain't divorce 'er
All the other dudes is so wack that I even feel a little jealousy



DONT WORRY JOE BUDDEN IS BRINGING HIP HOP BACK.

There's a reason underground rappers stay underground and "mainstream" rappers make all the $$$$$$$... and it has nothing to do with them "selling out."

I have no problem with the rap/hip hop being made these days. I hear some terrible stuff at times but if you have a good look there is a lot of great stuff out there, and there will always be something that pleases your taste.
I still listen to Biggy, Tupac, NWA and all the old stuff, but some of my favourite stuff is from the artists of today. To name a few:

-Atmosphere
-Aesop Rock
-Brother Ali
-P.O.S.

Jurassic 5's new Album is fresh. I still listen to Hova a lot because his songs just never get old in my opinion.."Dead Presidents II" will always be a favourite.

Also, does anyone know anything about Capone-n-Noreaga? I heard "invincible" by them the other day and really liked it but im not sure if i should bother listening to anything else because i never heard anything about them?

I used to be all in the "rap sucks rock is the awesome!!" crowd until I started listening to some Talib Kweli, Jurassic 5, Lupe Fiasco, DJ Shadow.

Mainstream rock had also been in quite a rut for some years. Thank god the pop-punk/nu-metal rock phase of the 90s is over.
