    Yes, now thats what i'm talking about.

    I have some respect for both DMX and N.W.A.

    They have both contributed to the rise and rise of the genre.

    The Game and 50 Cent are so commercial, i can't stand them. They make music to make money whereas real rappers like Nas, GZA, Big L and Talib Kweli make music for the love of music.

    I would even class Snoop and Dre as being to commercial. Hip Hop is not about shooting other gangs nor selling drugs, it is about expressing yourself.

    Yes classic song, yet Blazin Squad had to go and ruin the fecking song.

    I hate UK rap/grime so much, we are leagues behind the U.S in terms of quality.

    I dont mind the game but he always raps about cars. Will probably get his new album though. Will look forward to Jay-z new album. I also like Dr Dre.
    I also dont like Lil Wayne. Some of his songs are ok. On his new album, Mr carter is great but he aint great.
    Good song is Dr Dre feat Snoop Dogg - Still Dre

    I hate Lil Wayne. He is killing Hip Hop.

    Jay Z is one of the most overrated rappers of all time. How he is rated as one of the 'best rappers alive' is beyond me.

    Yeah i have heard that Dre and Snoop song - its OK - very Westcoast, i don't particular like rap when guns, girls and money are the main subject of the song.

    I also hate soulja boy. Have you heard Jay-z - Jockin Jay-z. It is on his next album but it is on youtube - youtube.com/wat…0ig. American Gangster had some good songs but Kingdom Come was very disappointing. KanYe West and Outkast are good aswell.

    No, No, No!!!!

    Lil Wayne is poor.

    If you want to listen to real hardcore rap - listen to Papoose. He is the rawest and one of the best lyricist of all time.

    Here is a few of his tunes.

    Papoose runs the underground music scene. IMO he probably is the best rapper alive.

    This is one of the madest and most lyrical songs i have heard.

    Its an extract of a Papoose tune that he will be releasing on his album.

    When Eminem raps hardcore, i like him. I like 'Stan', 'The Way I Am', 'Mosh', 'Fight Music' (D12) and '8 Mile' as you said. But i don't like songs like 'Loose Yourself' and 'My Band'.

    Original Poster

    Yes i love the Wu Tang Clan aswell. It was 'Gravel Pit' that made me realise the wonders of Hip Hop. IMO he Wu Tang Clan as the best Hip Hop group of all time.

    Always really liked rap/hip-hop, was massively into UK stuff around late 90s/early 00s (Roots Manuva, DJ Skitz etc etc). Fave hh track of all time? Couldn't really choose one, but here's a great early example of UK ]hiphop - Fingerprints of the Gods by Skitz (feat Roots Manuva, Phi-Life, Si-Phillie & Skeleton IIRC - awesome lyrics!)

    Agree about Wu (certainly one of the best & most influential).

    Original Poster

    Sorry mate but i am really not into the whole UK rap scene. I really hate to say it but the U.S are leagues ahead of us in the Hip Hop genre.

    Never, they are a million miles behind lyrically...

    Original Poster

    No way.

    Have you ever heard of artists like Big L, Talib Kweli, Papoose, Rakim and Nas?

    If you don't think the U.S have lyrical rappers, please listen to all the Papoose songs i have linked above. He is a lyrical genius.

    mobb deep - shook ones pt II
    public enemy - black steal in the power of chaos
    beastie boys - paul revere
    young mc - bust a move
    ice t - cop killa
    naughty by nature - feel by flow

    if you like real hip hop then these songs HAVE TO be in your list of top

    Mobb Deep? Are you serious?

    Mobb Deep are terrible. They are unbelievablely mainstream - making records for money. All they do is rap about guns, biatches and now G-Unit (who i hate with a passion). They are probably the 2 most uneithusiastic rappers ever to grace a microphone.

    mate mate mate.....jst cos they rap about guns n bitches doesnt mean they arnt top notch artists....jst cos bands are mainstream doesnt mean they arent good...everybody makes a song that ppl will like to sell albums n make money

    Everybody? I have never heard Talib Kweli advertise gun crime in order to get a couple of sales.

    Mobb Deep are in no way 'top artists'. They both 'rap' in such a monosalabic tone it make me bang my head against a brick wall in boredom.

    did i say they had to sing about GUNS to promote there sales but i GURANTEE they have written a mainstream song to sell singles!!!!

    and are you trying to go agains EVERYBODY in hip hop and the music industry and say the ppl like Snoop dogg are **** cos they rap about guns and women ? its everyday life for those ppl! and its GREAT music!
    Your big Nas fan look at what he does and what he sings about GUNS DRUGS AND WOMEN"

    also i may be wrong but he done a term in jail for guns

    Ok so Mobb Deep's marketing tool is advertising gun crime.

    Talib Kweli does not advertise guns/biatches/drugs - so what is his marketing gimmick?

    Snoop Dogg used to live a life of crime/drugs 15 years ago. Now he is rich as feck. That does no longer apply.

    Nas is different, he talks about guns ect. but does not advertise them. Nas talks real talk, he is a poet.

    is that the ONLY artist you no about mate....you can ask me about almost any hip hop artist and i can tell you about them all you seem to have is this one guy and jst because he doesnt sing about guns hes the only good one out there.....

    your being ridiculous, its the way they songs are written and how they are produced and the way the sound...if u dnt like ppl singing about guns is **** then your not a true hip hop fan cos almost all the top artistis sing about guns and drungs!!!

    Talib Kweli is not the only Hip Hop artist i know about - i was just using him as an example. I seriously doubt you know more about Hip Hop than me.

    Do you listen to real artists like:

    *Big L
    *Nas
    *Talib Kweli
    *Mos Def
    *Papoose
    *Immortal Techniques
    *AZ
    *Common
    *Rakim
    *Kool G Rap

    Or are you a 50 Cent fan (because he talks about guns a lot:roll:)

    There is FAR more to Hip Hop that biatches, Range Rovers, 24" rims, diamond chains, guns, drugs and pimps.
