Top 5 Hip Hop Artist of all Time - Page 16

post #226 of 233

I don't know about my top 5 favorite hip-hop artists but up there is Nas, Jay-Z & Biggie . . . I hate how Biggie spits a line about his homie raping and killing kids in the song What's Beef though . . . that's just not cool.

I don't listen to rap really but enjoy the beat-making process so I'll list my top 5 hip-hop producers...

 

1. RZA :: Incredibly versatile, which shows his skill in music as a whole.

2. M.F Doom :: Doesn't get enough credit for the beats he has made (also probably my favorite rapper).

3. Anitek :: If you ever get a chance, check him out

4. 9th Wonder :: Very knowledgeable and gives sampling a better name.

5. Sicknature :: Dem Snowgoons beats!

 

I would of course mentioned people that I like more who happen to make beat-music. I just don't consider having tons of music and a few with a rapper on it considered hip-hop (eg Nujabes, not a hiphop producer but amazing beat-maker).

Mos Def

expand ur taste beyond the east coast.... im not serious but thats a common taste preference for a lot of hip-hop fans. im tired of the same old lets take rap back to the old days sound. i like progression in hip-hop.

Duly noted. I've listened to a fair bit of rap. I've listened to Pac and whatnot, but although he is a good lyricist, I'm not as impressed with him. As for progression, I don't think Lil Wayne and Drake are progression. I like people like Immortal Technique who use their music to take a stance. Educated rappers who use vocabulary.

while im not a huge drake fan his last album was progressive at least the production was. lil wayne is just a trend follower nothing more. so you like socially conscious rap ey. I prefer the elitist hipster underground hip-hop that most people think is techno but in reality its just experimental hip-hop.

 

"educated rappers who use vocabulary" no one is better at that than aseop rock. seriously try to decipher his songs without rap genius. He raps like a poet philosopher science book.http://youtu.be/Gft-JI4MwkE
