W/Rap Sucks 2.0..............................Rap/HipHop Appreciation Thread. - Page 3

post #31 of 3332

I also like Foreign Beggars, well the older stuff at least.  Now they've become more of a remix/electronic combination with other producers.

 

Compare the older stuff 

 

 

 

To the newer stuff

 

 

It's still great, but I kinda miss just straight hip hop without the club vibe.

For old school vibe tracks like this I prefer my AKG K240's for the mid and the space it gives the beat.

 

But for harder beats (new school) I'll take my DT770's every time. Figured I'd drop this older Kendrick cut that makes my Beyers happy.

Yeppp on that Jay Z aspect he peaked wayyy back already.

 

LoL I am selling my CX250s if you are interested, my sets are in great condition and seems to be pretty durable. Shameless plug. biggrin.gif

http://www.head-fi.org/t/643666/budget-fi-iem-superlux-sale-all-must-go

I know right, like i stated above Jay has peaked a long time ago, just like Em' and now they are just hanging on by the "brand name" they have created but is no longer game changers/ unique.

 

Kanye is alright, i just don't get the hype on the guy that's all.

 

@PFULMTL

LMAO every time i see your name i think of this guy from one of the Korean Hip Hop forums i frequent.

 

http://purplemtl.blogspot.com/

 

That fool knows his hip hop meng. His blog is the gold mine for amazing Korean Hip Hop.

 

And on that note, Rename your name to PURPLEMTL............................................................pretty please??? tongue_smile.gif

 

Haha, I would but I haven't really got any money on me atm. Thankful for the free earbuds I got with my iPhone lol


even so, I would like to buy the CX400 2 as they're really cheap on amazon compared to some high street prices

Yepp that Nas track with Lauren Hill is one of my favs as well. Mob Deep is scary nice as always, but never really got into them. :/

I'll also post a few of my favorites:

 

This rap trio sounds more of a rap/J-Pop fusion than proper rap to me, but give them a try:

 

 

haha a friend of mine loves Chiddy Bang as well. That j-pop/rap is not bad. You might like Kick The Can Crew, kinda a similar style. But I am not big into J-rap so am only aware of a few.

 

Yepp good hip hop is sometimes hard to find but trust me there are tons of it out there since it is now global and there are tons of talent just awaiting to be discovered.

Man you're on FYRE!!! Foreign Beggars are nice. I actually like their newer sound better haha, that last MV with D.ablo is kicking. And that 1st MVs is pretty soulful. <3s

Hey you know what them earpods are pretty sweet sounding tbh. Tons of deep big bass on that lil' sucka. The mids/ highs are on point with a pretty huge soundstage. O.O I was surprised how great and comfortable they are compared to the crappy classic apple earbuds.

 

@Pere

LMAO at that track, cuz for the 1st 50 secs i was like. blink.gif Then it finally kicked up, man that is like some revolutionary sounding native up rising sh!t ha, cuz that is what it sounded like to me cuz i don't understand the language. Not bad.

 

@kid

I like your style of MV+headphone combo, gonna swagger jack that. biggrin.gif

And one of my favorite joints, Blue Scholars- No Rest for the Weary.
