Let's talk about hip hop.

A recently released album that really was very much too long in the making is the aptly named Perseverance by Percee P. He should have taken like 10 fewer years making this album and it probably would have been like 100% better.

One of my favorite artists still making music today is MF Doom. He even made an action figure of himself.

We can also talk about what our hip hop names would be in this thread. Mine would be Preacher Porkchop.

MF DOOM is a punk. He recently sent out doubles to perform at shows for him.

MF Doom has become a bit lame.

Last year and this year I've been digging a lot of Def Jam stuff and Anticon stuff. The new albums from Why? and Son Lux were good, also have the new Subtle and Dosh to listen to.

Bought "I'll sleep when you're dead" by el-producto last year, goddamn it is a tight album

Tazzo will probably laugh at me, but I've definitely been getting into a lot of rap music from the UK, specifically Grime music. I find it really cool how fast these guys rap and how it's less like dance music than American hip-hop. My favourites at the moment are Ghetto, Dizzee Rascal (of course), Durrty Goodz, Skepta, Frisco, Wiley.

One guy from the UK who I love dearly on occasion, but most of the time is absolute shit, is Akala.

Also, I'm a big fan of Roots Manuva both in production and his raps. The dude should've been huge.

Rodney P, The Nextmen, fuck there are a lot of good UK outfits.

Are you crazy? I'm cool with grime.

Check out Virus Syndicate and Tinchy Stryder

UKHH is cool too, I would recommend Klashnekoff, Skinnyman and Jehst.

Check out his collaboration with The Cinematic Orchestra if you haven't already - it's superb.

I'm a little confused as to the difference between hip-hop and rap, so bear with me.

I'm not so much into most hip hop (I quite prefer the Beastie Boys' "The Mix Up" to their other work), but I really like hip-hop mash ups (Rhyming In Rainbows by Hippomothamus, The Beastles, Let It Beast and Glassbreaks by DJ BC and the like), along with collaborations - The Chemical Brothers have worked with Q-tip, K-OS and Spank Rock to make some impressive stuff, lyrically and musically.

Evil Nine's breaks/genre bending style has made some great sounds with rap and the Propellerheads have produced some great beats with rhyme as well.

DJ Shadow had some good collaborations, but I think he's gone kind of downhill with his more recent stuff. It's less "out there" musically, I think.

UNKLE's "Psyence Fiction" stands out as some great experimental hip-hop and DJ Yoda tends to get some good collaborations in - another UK artist for those keeping score.

Atomic Hooligan and Mint Royale have produced some neat rap tracks, as well. Kool Keith with the Prodigy is pretty swell and the Stanton Warriors have released a few good ones as well.

I've been checking out some earlier MF Doom stuff at the request of a friend, and Prefuse 73, but haven't really managed to get into either.

Not really my thing, though. I'm more into the music than the lyrics.

I couldn't agree with you more. The first time I heard his new album I was so disappointed. David Banner and Keak Da Sneek shouldn't be affiliated with Shadow.

Well, as long as we're in the same boat on Shadow's work, I might as well find out about some more of this stuff if I might end up enjoying it. Based on the music I enjoy in the genre as mentioned above, can anyone recommend some artists/songs for me to check out?

wow, that first track is fucking sweet, thanks for that.

here are some of mine:

KMD - Who Me?

this is actually MF Doom's first band before he was called MF Doom. In this he is called Zev Love X and his brother is DJ Sub Rock, and hopefully this will redeem him in your eyes a little bit, though what he is doing with body doubles and shit is inexcusable unless he has like incurable cancer and needs to pay bills or some shit



Jurassic 5 - Day at the Races

I think Jurassic 5 is okay, not super great, but Percee P's verse in this is fucking sweet, starts at 1:45



Slick Rick - Children's Story

some of you will probably recognize this from San Andreas, but this track is sweet. He really is slick. Some pop song that's popular right now samples the background track of this song. The video is pretty funny too



Lord Finesse - Strictly for the Ladies

Here's one more for the road, he's got flow!

According to my last.fm, I've played the shit out of the following hip hop tracks:


El-Producto's (head of Def Jux) Flyentology. Sweet ass vid.


Roots Manuva and Chali 2na (from J5)


Modeselektor, gritty techno outfit featuring the Puppetmastaz. Who are they? nfi.


I love Aesop's "Fast Cars, Danger, Fire and Knives" EP. Featuring production/collabs with Mr. Lif, Cage, El-P and Blockhead among other Def Jux team.


Ratatat, do a weird clash of indie-rock, electronic and Hip-Hop. Also release mixtapes of their beats and mainstream rappers rhymes. No videos of them tho, but this is sick. Laughable vid (homemade). When listening to this song it is hard to not do things in time to the music.


More heavy beats, not much rapping. Homemade vid featuring The Man With the Loudest Car In The World, aka Dave Tipper with a track from his badass album Tip-Hop.


Ghislan Poirier, off Ninja Tune this came out this year. New York hip hop with mad reggae/dancehall vibes and made riddims.


Akala is a UK producer and MC. He has opinions about things, most of which he came up with himself


Cut Chemist - What's the Altitude. Collabs a lot with Shadow. Made a primarily instrumental album in 06 but this one featured Hymnal.

It's strange how a lot of hip hop artists are now bordering on indy rock and electro. I guess when you consider the state of hip hop and what it is primarily focused on now, they feel the need to distance themselves from it. This makes me sad.

I want hip hop to return to how it was in the early 90s.

Hmm I think this thread is starting to get logjammed from all the youtube videos....so guys let's post links instead.


92-95 were the best years for hip hop


I found this local guy "Shad" he's from london ontario which is pretty close to me. He has pretty good beats, great lyrics, and a nice flow. It's worth checking out.

"I Don't Really Like To"
"Nowadaze"

The second song is a better song, but the first one is an actual music video, and it's kinda funny it's in canadianness.


Also, check out his LIVE performance. That's real hiphop son. real people making real music


Also just looked up his tour schedule, and bought tickets to see him on Jun 22. Kinda excited niggas.
