You are so on point with this comment that it is ridiculous(in a good way). Masta Ace and the group Cunninlynguists are 2 of my favorites. Check out the song "Seasons" which is actually Cunninlynguists ft. Masta Ace.. just plain crazy!
Yeah, I love that song. Real nice. More good ones by those two...
Masta Ace - Take a Walk
- No Regrets
- Soda and Soap
Lupe Fiasco dropped 3 mixtapes and they are GREAT. He to me is probably the best emcee in the game right now. How many have his mixtapes? How many have even heard of him besides the single kick/push? Take your index finger and slowly place it in front of your mouth.
I only have Fahrenheit 1/15 Part II. If you say they're good though, I'll check out other ones.
AMEN! I really like the Rick Ross CD. Pharrell is good, too. But, no one beats Dr. Dre.
Are you serious? Rick Ross is one of the worst rappers out right now.
I wouldn't say rap is dead, it's just stale. Theres no creativity. Everybody talking about the same thing like " i killed that ni99a, im a thug" or " I f*** bytches all day". Everybody talking about Jewellery, and fast cars and women and theres no real talk and you can't really blame them because thats the only stuff that really sells anymore. At the end of the day i still enjoy rap and there are some artists that i really like.
When has mainstream rap ever been good? Seriously, if you think rap is dead based on what they play on the radio, you don't know nothing. The best rap music doesn't sell records and doesn't get radio play. Why? Because everybody loves a song with a club beat and catchy chorus.
I'm convinced now that more then truth is at stake
Where people create language that pretends to communicate
Euphemisms are misundertood as mistakes
but its a bi-product of the ghetto music we make
From an extroverted point of view I think its too late
Hip Hop has never been the same since '88
Since it became a lucrative profession as a misconception
in the movement in any direction is progression
Canibus speaks the truth.

Damn, what a piece of crap. Eminem's production still sucks, Obie has some talent but for most of the songs he seems content to rap about nothing. Just a boring cd.
