Need some new Hip Hop

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 

Looking for smart rhymes, interesting beats (possibly techy or dark?) but really anything of high quality.


Some of my faves as reference:


Can Ox

Jedi Mind Tricks

Anything Wu related

Company Flow

MF Doom

Mobb Deep

If you like Cannibal Ox and some dark beats then check out Dälek 


Quality all the way...

Dalek (L)

Also, if you like JMT, check out canibus's rip the jacker, same producer, better mc.
Second recommendation, Deep puddle dynamics, dose one might require some getting used to, but the other three mc's and the beats are pure abstract goodyness.

I guess you have your share of El-P? Also John Robinson did something ''spacy''. Maybe you digg it. I do not :)

Look up "Nine".

I just bought D'Angelo's Brown Sugar album and I really dig it.  I like Voodoo by him better, though...it's a lot more spread out and "earthy". 


Also of note:


Blakroc - Self-titled  (Two blues/rock white boys from Akron, OH playing around with some very good hip hop artists...fantastic stuff.)


Brother Ali - The Undisputed Truth  (Not the most complete hip hop album but definitely a strong one.)


Mos Def and Talib Kweli - Black Star  (A classic.  Both are at the top of their game.)

I'm just gonna go through my "music i want" word document and copy all the rap artists I see...





Immortal Technique


The Grouch



Biz Markie


Deans List

Hoodie Allen

The Roots

Big Boi

Living Legends

Brother Ali

Sunspot Jonz

Afro Classics



Mos Def


That's about it... sorry if you don't feel like going through every one, I'm not exactly sure what sound you're going for. Maybe the newest Cunninlynguists CD, Oneirology, would be what you're looking for?

Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All

Tyler the Creator

There is a old hip hop duo called Gang Starr they have very smart rhymes.  Another is Jurassic 5but they have more of a smooth beat.

Hope it helps!    :))
