they look like fucking immature aliens
Attn fuccbois: The One and Only Big Juss is the only dude in the history of humanity who ever gets fucking pass for wearing Supreme
Y'all else are still on the chopping block
They are pretty fun, i just saw their gig when they were here in the west coast. I usually listen to baroque or renaissance music but when i'm feeling goofy i like to listen to them.
Oh shit I forgot about Gravediggaz
You're literally what is wrong with hip-hop today, just because it's not pure backpacking 'lets rap about my third eye for 10 minutes' doesn't mean that it's not enjoyable to listen to
You're entitled to your opinion but just accept that it's not your thing rather than calling it trash, sometimes your views aren't the be all and end all yaknow
Also Drake is most definitely effay
I wont pretend i'm the most well versed in pre-2000s rap but i've for sure had a look at the essentials and really like it
Buuut styles change and as society changes the music also has to
Drake is a top 5 for sure, he's the biggest rap artist of today for a reason
Travis is finna do big things, rodeo is gonna slap
Your top ten's top ten isn't good enough to even shit on
Who cares if a rapper is making sound scans? Public opinion is fucking pointless; everybody is stupid
Big Willie Style sold more records than The Minstrel Show, but which album resonates further
Oh wait it is Big Willie Style...my bad
Your right styles do change but being famous doesnt make you "good" .look at macklemore
i'm not hating on the guy hes getting money and thats whats up. Im just saying hes not a good rapper. Like his word choice topics and weak delivery ( he has his moments tho)
I don't remember telling you my top 10
The others could be in the realm of cannibal ox and ghostface killah for all you know
Don't get me wrong i respect classics but it's not reasonable to discount the whole of modern popular rap just because it's popular and doesn't fit your personal view of hip-hop
Hey you're entitled to your opinion mate
No matter how many times you call it terrible i'm gonna continue to enjoy my wide range of tastes because that's what makes me happy
Being positive is a good thing, damn i'll check it out i've heard differently but i'll give it a go
I never said about not liking modern hip hop just that those 2 posted before are absolute fucking trash.
I don't agree, really just the first example that came to my mind though, I have no issue with his music or anything.
Again I don't hate modern hip hop, and I actually like all kinds of rap just that the ones posted before are shite.
I'll just list the fucking chronology of my hip hop knowledge
Picked up The Bake Sale at Target in 08 cuz the cover looked awesome
Then I remembered hearing about a rapper a few years earlier named Murs
Heard Phonte rap on the last track from Murs 3:16 the 9th Edition so I started listening to LB and Foreign Exchange
Tried finding a copy of the minstrel show and eventually bought it from a distributor on eBay (Molemen Records)
Bought Worst Fears Confirmed at the same time after reading about it
Whole thing spiraled out of control and I started listening to EVERYBODY in Midwest underground hip hop
Mostly listen to punk and hardcore though
drake is arguably the most technically gifted of this generation but inarguably one of the blandest
also he is not fashionable at all
apparently he copped a shit ton of wtaps at supply in Sydney purely because kanye doesn't wear it atm
They don't look good for as much money they are making .
"When I think back on 2015, drake doing some forgettable tour and a new music video are the first things that come to mind"
What is popular now will not define our generation
Nobody has any idea what will define our generation
Im not saying drake has the lasting power of decades but he is contributing to present day culture meaningfully regardless, and is incredibly interesting if you actually take the time to understand what his music is in its place in culture right now. Artists that are popular for a few months have almost no impact, but anyone who has lasted as long as drake undoubtebly has merit.
>getting this upset
maybe you should go reblog some hot new meme rap and calm down
>I ONLY LIKE WHATS NEW UNTIL OTHER PEOPLE LIKE IT
2009 called, it wants it's views on music back if you and reddit are done borrowing
Sure so I listen to that too, but popular music is pretty intrinsically tied into the culture that gave birth to it so when it comes to any pop music I don't usually look back further than the eras that i've experienced.
You're missing out
So much great hip hop
The first time I heard Don't Curse (Heavy D featuring Kool G Rap, Grand Puba, CL Smooth, Big Daddy Kane, Pete Rock, and the almighty Q Tip), all I could think is "can any rapper alive today put together so much talent on one track, THEN tell them that they have to rap about not cursing....oh and it's a party rap joint on top of that? Probably not.
I think I should phrase this differently, I do listen to old hip-hop, just like I listen to older everything, I seriously appreciate so much music. But when I want to listen to pop music for its original intended effect, to get the impact of its socially reflective qualities, I can only find get that from modern stuff.
I mostly bring out HiNRG....and Age of Plastic
Since when is hip hop about getting women lol? Are you sure you're allowed to browse this website?
Mobb deep, pic off the back of a top 10 hip hop album all time
Not exclusively a hip-hop group but made hip-hop tracks. Meat Beat Manifesto was definitely one of the most /fa/ groups. They were nxtlvl af, even had Suzie Bick in the video pic related is from.
>Drake is corny .
"The next real literary “rebels” in this country might well emerge as some weird bunch of anti-rebels, born oglers who dare somehow to back away from ironic watching, who have the childish gall actually to endorse and instantiate single-entendre principles. Who treat of plain old untrendy human troubles and emotions in U.S. life with reverence and conviction. Who eschew self-consciousness and hip fatigue. These anti-rebels would be outdated, of course, before they even started. Dead on the page. Too sincere. Clearly repressed. Backward, quaint, naive, anachronistic. Maybe that’ll be the point. Maybe that’s why they’ll be the next real rebels. Real rebels, as far as I can see, risk disapproval. The old postmodern insurgents risked the gasp and squeal: shock, disgust, outrage, censorship, accusations of socialism, anarchism, nihilism. Today’s risks are different. The new rebels might be artists willing to risk the yawn, the rolled eyes, the cool smile, the nudged ribs, the parody of gifted ironists, the “Oh how banal.” To risk accusations of sentimentality, melodrama. Of overcredulity. Of softness. Of willingness to be suckered by a world of lurkers and starers who fear gaze and ridicule above imprisonment without law. Who knows."
He's incredibly boring. He raps over the easiest beats, usually samples dad music. The only time he's somewhat decent is when he's ripping off guys like Kendrick. I can't think of a more corny rapper, he's the kind of guy some white kids in college say "man this guy is REAL music!" I can't help but cringe when I listen to him.
Oh yeah, hmu when your favorite rapper has modeled on a runway
Travi$ Scott for Mark McNairy. Plus, there is no ,objectively, "most-fa hip hop group".
Oh trust me, I fucking love travi$. Saw him in Santa Ana a few weeks ago and it was great. I just don't get why so many people hate on yung lean & sadboys / bladee & gtbsg when obviously travi$ fucks with them enough to do a song together
