I thought I agreed with that but I'm listening to Beats, Rhymes and Life now and surprised myself that I liked it more than I recall, certainly not as good as the previous 3 lp's tho.

Anyway what other hip hop bands are similiar to The Roots? I'm not looking for the same exact sound as The Roots. I'm just looking for Hip Hop that's made by real musicians. I'm looking for r&b or rap... No 50 cent, eminem, beyonce, Bow Wow, Fergie type stuff.... I want real musicians

Roxanne Shante/Real Roxanne old school right there.. I'd add Biz Makie.. Catching the vapor. Kool G Rap..It's a demo.. BDK.. Aint no half steppin.. IMO rap/hip hop was the best in the 80's.. Too many posers in the 90's.

I was digging in the crates of old Head-Fi threads and came across this gem today.  There are some really good Hip-Hop recommendations on this thread as well as some not so good ones.


Here is my list of the best Hip-Hop performers:

-- The People Under the Stairs

-- Thes One (solo stuff)

-- The Cunninglyguists

-- Kno (his newest solo stuff)

-- Pete Rock

-- DJ Premier

-- J Dilla

-- Black Milk

-- Marco Polo

-- Blockhead

-- 3rd Bass (very underrated) 

-- Mos Def


-- Common

-- 9th Wonder (any of his solo albums or work with Murs, Justus League and Little Brother)


Lastly, the best website for up to date "real" Hip-Hop news is:

great thread to rise from the dead... also great list.  One artist who is far less known then should be is Cormega.
