Re: Good Hip-hop???

yeah i saw that on tv a couple of times when i was on holiday in italy..... i was like WTF why is brighton in an italian hip hop video?!

fun to look at since i live here, and fun to look at since they try to make all the really mundane and boring things in brighton seem cool by drawing cartoon mohawks over peoples heads and shit.

Good Uk hip-hop is called grime.

"Before I give my own review of this book I just want to say that I am a huge harry potter fan, to the extent that I actually have a deathly hallows tattoo on my bottom. I'm also quite ill right now, but I fought against my horrid cold to read this book. "

Re: Good Hip-hop???

Yeah, a lot of good UK mc's seem to be doing lines over grime nowadays, the worrying part is that a lot of it is pretty good

Re: Good Hip-hop???

How good is I Luv U by Dizzee Rascal? Very.

New MOP is pretty good if you're into that kind of thing.

New 50 Cent is not.

Re: Good Hip-hop???

Who likes AZ's 'Doe Or Die'? One of my all-time favorite hip-hop records!

I'm here and there on that record, it has a couple of superb tracks such as 'Rather Unique'. There is a great review about it somewhere on Amazon...that he's just too perfect an MC and that all his internal rhymes have too much flow, and that actually its the slips and fuck-ups that make for great MCing...I can totally agree with that.

That said, his verse on Life's a Bitch is superb, so good that he recycled it several times on 'Doe or Die'. At the end of the day I prefer my East Coast Hip Hop to have a bit more menace to it, such as 'Dah Shinin'...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qo-9fZ_mJ8A - Kyza's verse on this is ridiculously good.

Re: Good Hip-hop???

Not been mentioned yet but the Hilltop Hoods from Australia are fucking incredible!

http://www.myspace.com/hilltophoods - Hard Rock is a class song. They did a remix of one of their albums called the Hard Road: Re-strung which contained the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra.

Re: Good Hip-hop???

I think the best MOP album is First Family 4 Life.

Also did someone mention that Blackstar album before? Because that's a great album and one of the only good things Talib Kweli did.

What are some good mixtapes around at the moment?

Re: Good Hip-hop???

Re: Good Hip-hop???

i was actually gonna mention AZ in this thread.... really dig doe or die and would like to know what other records people rate. i much prefer the harder edged songs like 'uncut raw'....

also really enjoying black moon 'enter da stage' at the moment. get the feeling they just made that one classic and kinda lost it though.... what else is good by these heads?

and since people mentioned uk hip hop... i fucking love everything by GUNSHOT. i always say its like a british version of public enemy cause of the noisy and chaotic production, but its way more mental sounding with really fast rapping over it often in patois.... really heavy and not forced or contrived sounding at all. early singles are classic but i especially like the final album 'twilights last gleaming'.

Re: Good Hip-hop???

'Enta Da Stage' is by far the best thing Black Moon did - their later stuff was far more polished (i.e., worse).

Check out the first two Organized Konfusion records if you haven't already...

Re: Good Hip-hop???

First two? I'd say 'The Equinox' was better than their first album.
