Hip-Hop and Rap Fans! - Page 23

post #331 of 448
Wow i've got a lot of new ideas within the hip hop era with this thread. thanks to everyone with their great ideas. I've always been a fan of the old school story telling rap. And in my opinion Tupac is arguably one of the best if not the best. His flow is also very nice. If only he were alive today, he would do wonders. One of the most enjoyable albums i like right now, is The Games latest LAX. Very good ablum. lil Waynes Tha Carter 3 will always be up there on top also. His lyrics are so smooth and clever. And of course Eminem. Smartass clever rap. =P

Albums to check out: All of them! but his best IMO are his latest album 'Then What Happened' and 'The Best Part'.

Do you think a geeky looking Asian guy likes rap? :P
Too much music, so so so little time.
The only half decent Asian rapper I've heard is Jin's freestyles. (His studio album = fails beyond belief).

I just wanted to x2 on the J-Live stuff. Still haven't been able to get my hands on "then what happened" but hopefully in the near future. The best part rocks my socks and all of the above is great as well.

On the topic of Asian rap, there is a Japanese/Canadian group from Halifax, NS, Canada that is called "Alpha Flight" which is really good. I suggest you check them out. One of the guys in that group "Ghettosocks" has his own record as well. They even throw in some kill bill into their mixes hah.

Asian rapper? That guy from Blue Scholars is pretty good. Geologic.

I just hate how he thinks Philippines is a third world country. It's not. Poverty may be prevalent there and after checking the GDP for it, I stand corrected. Bleh

Either way, look him up.

Any other albums you guys can recommend that sound along the same lines as the Fashawn album and Below The Heavens? I feel that these albums are a couple of the more musical, mellow, melodic and soulful hiphop records I've heard.

Sure, I don't listen to hiphop a lot... but I'd like to have those recommendations.

Check out Jin, he used to be a Ruff Ryder but got dropped from his record label. He only made 1 commercial album, which is 'The Rest is History'. Y'all should check that out, that mothrfckr is the truth. He's real Hip-hop, not some about-money-drugs-sex-cars Hip-hop. More info of him: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jin_%28rapper%29
post #342 of 448
Are you kidding Jin was a BET Freestyle Friday champ, and thats it. He fell right off when his run on BET was over. I had heard he won some freestyle comps in his career, but boy has been working for like 10 years now with nothing to show... almost like Papoose lol, but at least Paps got street cred.
It takes talent to make a song instead of just spitting fire. Canibus has the same problem but has worked with people to help him out a bit Can-I-Bus was awsome compared to the rest of his catolog and i contribute that to Wyclef.
post #343 of 448
Can-I-Bus was so crappy that it killed his career, and most people blame it on Wyclef's horrible production, so you're probably alone on thinking it's awesome.
post #344 of 448
Can-I-Bus was a solid album, but barley decent compared to other releases around the same time period. Don't understand the hate towards it, it's nothing spectacular, but it's not as horrible as people make it out to be.
post #345 of 448
Compared to the rest of his career, that one is good. But there is definetly better albums from that era dont get me wrong.

...how can you say that killed his career it was his debut.
