I just wanted to check if we have any fans of hiphop here?

I used to be a metalhead of great proportions until i converted, found alot of more meaning in the hiphoptexts than most of the various rock i listened to.


My absolute favorite, who has his own pedestal is Astronautalis. I just love him. His blend of different styles.

Here's a few by Prof, he's my favorite on the more "**** it"-hiphop, the harsher, harder hiphop.

Let me say thank you for sharing some of the stuff you like. It's always good when you can find an artist you haven't heard before and it opens up doors. Here are a couple more of my favorite artists:

Kenn Starr:

Panacea:

Kenn was not my cup of tea, Panacea was great though

Raashan will get a few more listenings before i've decided on him.



Some other artists you should check out:


Prof
Murs
Atmosphere
Grieves
P.O.S
Mike Mictlan
Dumbfoundead (his texts are kinda worthless, but his flow is top)
Doomtree
Q-tip
Brother Ali
Aesop Rock
Hail Mary Mallon


Those i could namedrop right now



What was your opinion on the swedish style?
You won't understand any of the texts but the calmer sound of it all?


Aleks - Fruängen is a very strong song, tells an awesome (but quite horrible) story. I love that one.

Until a few years ago, hip hop was all I ever listened to. Hard to come up with favorites, though...

Artists who came up recently:

Brother Ali
Evidence
The Left
Zion I
Immortal Technique
Jedi Mind Tricks

Older artists...depends on what I'm listening to, but right now:

Gang Starr
Wu Tang
Tribe Called Quest
Heiroglyphics and Souls of Mischief (especially Pep Love)
Snoop
EPMD
Mobb Deep (older stuff)
Big L

I need to get back into more underground artists, but it's hard to leave songs like this:

I hated hip hop of all varieties until the moment I heard Deltron 3030. Changed my mind in an instant.

So did i, when all i knew was radio-hiphop.
THen i heard POS - Optimist, and then more of his. And so i changed.

I'll give Deltron a go, when i'm not that hungover anymore.

Yelawolf- Before he signed with Shady records. His Collaborations and solo work are great.
KO- Urban Funk, Urban Folk. Used to be homeless, I swear I've seen him bumming around Toronto..
Vinnie Paz- Army of the Pharaohs and Jedi Mind Tricks
Machine Gun Kelly- Not many people can speak words as fast as Busta
Rittz- I really like his flow but I think his life just sucked

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=isHFcPK0eSsSwedish always cheers me up. Tackar. :biggrin:

I must say I am not really into hip hop, then again I know mainly of radio stuff... This song is one of the exceptions though. Maybe it's not pure hip hop, but whatever.
