Greatest line in the history of English: "Why they kill my dog and man I miss my uncle Charles ya'll."

What's better is that the video clears up any confusion regarding the usage of the word "dog." No Randy Jackson slang here, he literally means his pet!

But, but I love Sugar Hill Gang! If there's a better song than 8th Wonder, I haven't heard it

Top five list is tough. It changes depending on my mood. But my most consistent list would be

5. Gangstarr
4. Wu-Tang
3. Slick Rick
2. Biggie
1. Rakim

With Common, RUN DMC, and Pete Rock and CL Smooth lamentably missing the cut

Re: New Nas Album

I can't rank people because it depends so much on my mood.

Classic:
Wu-Tang. Especially GZA liquid swordz. What an amazing album.
Rakim. Sick flows.
Tupac. Never was a fan of how his music sounded, but the man was a poet.
KRS-one. Great flows. Hard to believe he got his start when he was homeless rapping on the street for money and happened to do it for a radio executive.
Tribe: Just classic stuff here. No description needed.
Gravediggaz. Horror-core at it's best. RZA, Prince Paul, Frukwan, and Too Poetic. Love the grimy RZA beats. Everything.


New Era:
MF Doom. I love this guy.
Lupe Fiasco. He's grown on me a bit. Hip hop saved my life is a damn good song.
Gangstarr. Hard to choose what era to put these guys in. I love premier and Guru. Sick beats, the monotone flow. Love it.
Blackstar. Talib and Mos Def. Sick combo. Another group I listen to constantly, like Gangstarr.
Wyclef Jean. This dude does some things I don't like (Shakira) but Carnival was an amazing CD. He rips up the guitar too, one of the better current guitar players out right now.
Sage Francis: Lots of political stuff here, so obviously not for everyone. Makeshift patriot is a song everyone should give a listen to.
Deltron 3030. Del and Automater team up. What could go wrong?
Aesop Rock. Awesome songs, not a fan of 100% of his work, but most of it is very good.
Atmosphere. Nice to see this guy finally blow up, he's been putting out quality work forever.

Producers:
RZA. Grimy. The sheer amount of work he did producing for years is astounding. Some of the sickest beats in hip hop.
DJ Premier. Always making sick beats, really like what he did with Guru in Gangstarr.
Timbaland. Can't leave this guy out. A lot like RZA, the amount of work he's produced is amazing. He goes a lot more poppy mainstream sometimes, but he still puts out sick beats.
DJ Danger Mouse. This is the dude that mixed the Grey Album (Mix between Beetles white album and Jay-Z's black album, then that twat Paul McCartney sued him. At least Jay-Z gave him props for an awesome album). He also does a lot of work with MF Doom.
Dan the Automator. This guy has done a lot, but really admire the work he's done teaming up with Del. Deltron 3030 is worth a look if you aren't familiar.
Young Guru. Does a lot of Jay-Z's beats. Obviously quite talented.

Re: New Nas Album

I don't understand the people that broadly hate hip-hop. It's such a diverse genre, there's a lot of rap I really hate, but there's a lot of stuff that's really good and clever.

Re: New Nas Album

Maybe it was skinsfan_nn. He's got an accredited PhD (playa hata degree). He hated on my Ain't Nuthin But a Mod Thing remake a while back, if I recall correctly.

By the way, underrated=AZ, imo.

Re: New Nas Album

I'm not a hardcore rap/hip-hop fan but I do like Jay-Z, Tribe, Wu-Tang, Busta, Common, Cypress Hill, Gnarls Barkley, Geto Boys, Eric B. and Rakim, Jurassic 5, Fugees, The Roots, Tupac, Biggie, Dre, Snoop, Public Enemy, Run DMC, and one of my favorite groups of all-time regardless of genre... The Beasties.

I was surprised no-one brought them up before.

IMO Paul's Boutique is one of the greatest rap albums of all time. The cuts, the mix, the rhymes.... it's all there.

Re: New Nas Album

I dabble into the hip-hop regime from time to time in my music listening. One of my faves is definitely Tribe. I saw The Pharcyde when I was in college (they played Field Day, co-headlining with Jimmie's Chicken Shack), and they were pretty good. A buddy of mine interviewed them for the school radio station, got on their bus with them and got nice and toasty. And since I grew up in MoCo in the late 80s, I like Heavy D, De La Soul, and whatever else was playing on WPGC and WKYS at the time.

But the one group I never got into was the Beasties. There is no doubt that they are talented, I just never liked them that much.
