Rap Sucks - Page 9

I will do my best to download them and take a listen. I think there is always an exception to every rule, so there just has to be at least one rap song that doesn't suck. Hell I can name good country songs, freaking COUNTRY!!!!! So there has to be at least one from the 100,000 raps out there that isn't crap. I want to find it. I don't know enough about this music to do it on my own. Help me find it.
Well, like I said, I'm not trying to defend the GENRE or Rap, but I like a lot of the Roots stuff prior to Phrenology (particularly the Organix and Illadelphia Halflife albums), as well as Public Enemy from the early 90's. The De La Sol and Tribe Called Quest greatest hits albums are also good representations of what I like.

I wouldn't call this underground by any means, but it's what I like, and what I think is good. I know nothing about "underground rap".

Metalhead, you may want to check some out as well. Who knows, you may even learn something.

KR..., I'm not too concerned with trying to turn haters into hip-hop believers... if you hate rap then no amount of good beats and rhymes will change that. But if you want to download some tracks to see what it's about, while keeping a relatively open mind, then that's real cool (regardless of whether you like the stuff or not).
There are hundreds (if not thousands) of different artists and styles but if I was recommending an underground sampler (The Roots aren't underground) it'd go something like this:

Sage Francis - Inherited Scars, Personal Journalist

Cannibal Ox - Vein, A B-Boys Alpha

Sole - da baddest poet, respect pt 3

Aesop Rock - Daylight, Flashflood

El-P - Deep Space 9mm, Delorean

Jedi Mind Tricks - Speech Cobras, The Deer Hunter

I put a couple tracks for each artist/group cos I'm not sure how available it all is (I never download hip-hop) so you can decide. There are six very different styles there; El-P's stuff is not the most accessible to underground newbies but it wouldn't be complete without him (crazy *******-up beats).

If you smoke the good stuff now's the time.

Well, I just did a serach on Kazaa Lite for El-P and I found 234 files! I am downloading Deep Space 9mm right now.

Could DarkDitz be down? not likely.

Atmosphere is a group that's quite accessible to people that are new to hip-hop. Tracks worth checking out are: The Woman with the Tattooed Hands, Between the Lines, Free or Dead.

LOL!

I don't own any rap Cds and I don't think I ever will. I don't think I will start talking in Ebonics. I don't think I will start dressing like a homosexual prison inmate. But I think it is important to open your mind to everything. Word Life

On to the open challenge bit.

El-P - Deep Space 9mm, Delorean

I listen to both of these tracks.

Their DJ is really good, damn good as a matter of fact. Hell, I actually like it (call the tr00 police DA). The act of rapping itself is just something that I don't think I could ever get use to, that style of vocals are just not my cup of tea. However, at least these guy's rapping is not boring and plain like all that horrid mainstream crap.

At least nu-metal is music. Rap isn't, and it sounds like total s**t (btw, this is just my opinion, duh).

KR... that's cool you checked out some El-P; I'm surprised you somewhat liked his stuff.
