+1

Their album rising down is also worth a listen. Really good spots from common, dice raw, and wale. And black thought as usual.

1- Lupe Fiasco-The Cool

2-Lupe Fiasco- Food & Liquor

They're both old but classic's imo

 

not sure if Nujabes is considered Hip hop, but everything he makes sounds great. R.I.P 

post #588 of 637

Oh hell yeah, Nujabes is hip-hop. Top-notch producer.  I can't really find stuff of him DJing, so I wonder if he's good at it, but his beats are great.

Yup, guy can make a song with no words and speak volumes. Been trying to find others that can do it like him or somewhat close, no dice yet.

I'd recommend Donuts, by J Dilla., and Madlib's Beat Konducta series. Both are truly beautiful masterpieces, spanning different cultures and offering up a diverse array of instrumentals.

Havent listened to Donuts yet, but skimmed through a couple "Beat Konducta" songs and me likey so far.

post #592 of 637

Donuts has some reaaaal goodness on it. Also check Dilla's The Shining which contains actual ''songs'' instead of snippets of music.

 

Madlib's Beat Konducta Vol. 5-6 - A Tribute to Dilla is another good one.

Also check out the Madlib and Freddie Gibbs collaboration with singles like Shame and Thuggin'. A full album called Cocaine Piñata should drop later this year. I'll be on the look out fo' rizl biggrin.gif

A couple green MCs I've heard recently are Honors English and Gorilla Warfare Tactics. They both have free music on their websites. They both also are largely self-producers. If you're looking for something new, its definitely worth a look.

Sub-topic: Favorite hip-hop group?  Other than Wu-Tang?  

post #596 of 637

Ok I've gotta admit Dilla and Madlib have been on repeat for a while today and they're hella tight. Now Nujabes got some company when I don't feel like listening to songs with words.

post #597 of 637

just found this thread, and not sure if you guys have heard this yet. Pretty dope.
