    Re: Hip Hop/Rap fans here?

    I mostly listen to Dr.Dre or Snoop Dogg but X-Zibit is also nice, Eminem, 50 Cent. I'm form Poland so i mostly listen to Polish Hip-Hop though.

    Have someone heard about "Mafia K-1 Fry" ?? They're French, hmm... Group, Band ?? I don't know how to call it in English.

    Re: Hip Hop/Rap fans here?

    I used to listen to a lot of hip hop, when I was a teenager. I got turned off by it, because there's lack of originality and the lyrics content is getting old and hackneyed, i.e. themes such as money, sex, booze, violence, etc..

    I know I might sound ignorant for saying that, but it's true. I don't mind hearing it, it doesn't offend me or anything, but damn that's all they rap about.

    But don't get me wrong, out of the 90 percent of crappy rappers out there, there's always 10 percent that are really good and talented, some that we haven't even heard about. Example: Lupe Fiasco.

    ok, that said, I'm a big fan of these artists:

    Tupac, Wu Tang, Bone Thugz, Notorius BIG, Dre, Snoop, Ice Cube, Outkast, Kanye West, Eminem, etc. you get the idea (this list is in NO PARTICULAR ORDER).

    I like their old stuff, but as soon as they start doing a third album, i.e. Eminem, their music starts going downhill. The only consistent rapper that kept/maintained the high quality in their music, out of the above I mentioned, are Tupac, Biggie, Dre, and Outkast. They keep improving and changing it up, unlike Eminem or Snoop, who raps about the same old thing.

    Yeah, and you might think I contradicted myself, since these rappers rap about: money, sex, booze, violence. But the above artists mentioned, are different. They were the pioneers of such things, and they didn't overdo it. Plus, they rapped about other themes, for example:

    Tupac - the struggles of growing up poor, African American, in a gang dominated society, loss of a friend, etc.

    Bone Thugz - songs dedicated to Marijuana

    Nowadays, all I see are rappers with gold/platinum chains riding in limos with groupies rapping about their rough childhood......c'mon now, that's so fake and unrealistic.

    Dre ain't shit as a rapper, when he actually can write an album by himself I'll acknowledge his lyrical skills but on like the "2001" album he had guests n' ghostwriters to such a degree that from my point of view it ain't even a Dre album. Awesome producer though, great beats.

    Tupac was good, Biggie is better.

    Snoop was good during the golden era, when he teamed up with Pharrel n' made "Drop it like it's hot" he deserved a bullet in the head GO SUGE

    Anyways you don't listen alot to underground do ya? Sure they have violence BUT sometimes there is a meaning to it aswell. Listen to Immortal Technique - Dance With The Devil or Peruvian Cocaine.

    Re: Hip Hop/Rap fans here?

    Yeah you're right, I was talking mostly about the mainstream Hip Hop. I haven't had the chance to explore the underground Hip Hop lately, like I said, I turned away from Hip Hop in general, for a while now. I'll try to check out those artists that you mentioned, thanks for the suggestions.

    Right now I'm a big fan of Lupe Fiasco, man this kid can rhyme!

    However, I'm not sure if he's considered "mainstream".

    Soulja Boys is the main thing right now. The beat, the song everything is just great. But for some reason I can never bring myself to do the dance. My little cuz is seven is she danced through the whole song. any of you guys do the dance?

    Lol i tried..and it didnt look pretty. My sister keeps watching a "learning" video on Youtube.

    Everyone just wants to dance like Soulja Boy, but sorry to seem racist, but unless your black it just wont be the same.

    Re: Hip Hop/Rap fans here?

    Heard Crank That once and can't see what all the fuss is about (lots of my friends seem to be crazy about this song). But then again I am not the type to appreciate a song before hearing it over and over again. Probably.

    @iThePirate: ROFL Well I think it's rather "Crank That" than the superman is hoe thing.
