I'm no expert on the genre, but I've been listening to a few hip hop/rap albums lately (notably The Score by Fugees, The Carnival by Wyclef Jean, and Enter the Wu-Tang by Wu-Tang Clan).

I'm sure this isn't the most popular genre on a metal site, but hopefully it can lead towards some good discussions and recommendations. Smile And of course, the forum isn't complete without at least having one thread about hip hop. LOL

Word up yo. Cool

I listened to some rap back when I was younger, but the style never really caught on with me. Ice Cube, Ice-T, N.W.A., Ghetto Boys, Onyx, Gravediggaz and of course Cypress Hill were some of the artists I listened to. I remember Onyx having some really aggressive vocals which I greatly enjoyed. Ghetto Boys had some almost gore themed lyrics about dismembered corpses and other nasty things and the ever stoned Cypress Hill were favorites among the dopesmokers in high school.

I like the Beastie Boys because they're different, and I have a couple of their albums. I also quite like A Tribe Called Quest and De La Soul although I do not own any albums with them (but maybe my girlfriend does... she's into hip hop and R'n'B). There are also some old school Danish hip hop artists that I like , and I attended a Jyder Mæ Attituder show last year in Ringkøbing. I was even in a rap band once, but don't tell anyone.

I tend to dislike recent rap music and hip hop (especially gangsta rap) because it's all become streamlined and it sounds alike; it's basically become pop music. Eeech!

^ You need to get The Score by Fugees. Easy 5-star album IMO. The chemistry between the 3 MC's in that group is unbelievable... every rapper in the group has an incredibly different style. Listen to this:

My brother owns a number of albums by The Roots.  I listened to one a few days ago (I think it was Do You Want More?), and thought it was pretty cool.

Not a genre of music that I have ever developed an interest in.  There were a few songs back in the early days from Run D-M-C and Tone-Loc that I liked, and every so often I'll hear a hip-hop or rap song that I'll like, but I've never had a desire to go out of my way to listen to it.

I gave The Carnival Vol. II by Wyclef Jean another chance yesterday, only to be disappointed yet again. It's really hard to believe that this pop-oriented disaster is the follow-up to the experimental masterpiece that was The Carnival. This is the only good song on the entire album:

As much as I hate this genre, I can't stand how catchy this song is, even though it's quite vulgar Censored


And the lyrics pose a rather contrary-to-what-you-want-to-actually-do in life, morally (well at least hopefully)

Is that hip hop? It sounds more like a sort of pseudo-retro kind of soul music.

Yeah that's not really hip hop, though I'm far from an expert on the genre. Funny stuff though. Cee Lo Green was hilarious on Saturday Night Live last week. LOL

I don't follow contemporary pop music that much these days, so I've actually only heard parts of Cee Lo Green's song, and I'v enever experienced him in interviews or other contexts not relating to music.

I never even heard of Cee Lo Green before last weekend. LOL My knowledge in the modern pop field is sooooo bad...

On the original topic of the thread, I've been hooked on Enter the Wu-Tang yet again. I gave it a rest for a month, but I had to hear it again earlier this morning. Everything here is just excellent! Clap
