Intelligent Hip Hop
Its so hard to find good beats and smart rhymes, figured a thread for it would be a great way to get some fresh tracks. i'll kick it off with blue scholars album bayani
This section is for music discussion not music.
Rap minus lies equals hip hop.
Some one read that off of a t-shirt to me.
Intelligent hip hop, does that even exist?
I just thought it was a bunch of kids with guns talking about how much stuff they have, and how much you don't?
Mos Def & Talib Kweli are Blackstar. Album is genius, and a reminder that hip hop isn't limited to money, cash, hoes. Also, The Roots Phrenology. Upbeat, and not 'gangsta', but very creative.
on topic: cunninlynguists are pretty much fantastic. great lyrics, great production. 'dirty acres' and 'a piece of strange' are a good place to start with them i guess.
dr. octagon's (dr. octagon being one the many names of kool keith, who's other material i haven't really checked out) album 'dr. octagonocologyst' is a fantastic piece of work, easily my favourite rap album. it's pretty trip-hoppy though and the lyrics are incredibly abstract. it's not really everyone's thing but damn do i love it.
not gonna post a myspace for dr. octagon cause it's all stuff from his new album which isn't as good.
almost everyone on rhymesayers: atmosophere, brother ali, mac lethal, POS, etc.
MURS, the coup, mc paul barman.
really loving : zion i & people under the stairs lately.
atmoshere is outstanding
can't forget jurassic 5
