  1. Underground Hip Hop Listeners?


    Just checking if we had any heads on AM. I know Ubi and Swole210 are about it, by underground hip hop I mean:

    Atmosphere
    Brother Ali
    Eyedea
    J-Live
    Reef the Lost Cauze
    Aesop Rock
    Cage
    Cannibal Ox

    etc., etc.,


  2. Does Jurassic 5 count? I mean - they aren't well known at all.

    I listen to mostly hip hop - it sucks these days. How Ballin' is a top song - I'll never know.

  3. i like the philly guys:

    jedi mind tricks
    outer space

    the roots, the are definately more popular, but very little of their stuff gets played. Their older albums are excellent, but rarely played.

    Yeah, RJD2 is an amazing producer. Have you ever heard of a Chicago artist named Diverse? Most of his tracks are produced by RJ and they are amazing. Illogic has a song called Favourite Things which is one of my top five songs. All around good artists, it's hard to remember them all sometimes...lol

  6. count me in too. big fan of underground hip hop.

  7. I'll have to look into some of these groups. I'm a big 90's hip hop fan. O.C., Royal Flush, Nas, Mobb Deep, Wu, AZ, Bone, WC and Mack10, Outkast, Goodie Mob, Gangstarr, MOP, etc etc. Damn the 90's was the shiot.

    Yeah, alot of the artists I like came from NJ during that early 90's period. Artists like the Artifacts for example. If you like that really eastern feel hip-hop then you'd really like alot of the examples given Alexander.

    Can't forget about the Souls of Mischief either, one of the sickest hip hop groups ever.

    Damn I forgot Souls of Mischief existed, thanks for the reminder. I'm definitely gonna check out some of the artists you listed above.

  12. Just listened to 93 til infinity, felt like I was back in middle school. Nice thread.

  14. army of pharoahs
    bus driver
    mystikal manik
    Serum

  15. Mos Def, Talib, J5, Dialated Peoples...

    ...a new guy I've been listening a bit to is Lupe Fiasco

  16. Madlib, Lord Quas, DJ-Rels, Littel Brother, Danger Mouse, Black Mlik, Lady Soverign, and some old cats like large professor, J-Dilla. Lupe and the Neptunes have a nice sound Kick, Push is my sons Fav. That just made me feel old.

  17. I don't like Lady S. She seems like a ****ed up female version of Eminem. Didn't really care for Danger Mouse too much either but I think i'm in the minority on that one. He seemed to have a nice following.

    Yeah, I gotta call you on that as well, I cannot stand Lady S. She represents most of the things I am against in Hip Hop. Madlib and LQ are pretty tight though.

  19. she brings a different sound and i like her accent and theres not many females out there throwing down. what do you hate about her.

  20. Her lyrics seem pretty much thrown together without any real form other than just being vulger and rude. If I just want to listento something that sounds good there are better and if I want to listen to something with meaning...there are better

  21. yeah i can see how comes off as just a rude bit@#h, Jay danger mouse is the man he does all his production with a old ass computer and a $190 program and he made ce-lo famous. I do not get the whole mask thing

  22. The only UG hip-hop that I listen to is Immortal Technique. He has some of the craziest lyrics and some awesome beats. I really get into his stuff b/c he has a political and social message within his lyrics.

  23. Yeah, I like more of a message, social undertone, or emotional current in my Hip Hop; consequently, I think that is what mainly seperates mainstream and underground hip hop. I think Lady S is no different than 99% of other mainstream rappers, hence, I don't like her.

  25. Anyone know who put out the songs:

    Secret Wars 1 & 2 (about comic books)

    &

    Echo Leader

    I know it was the same guy...

    Also...is Black Rob still considered underground?

  26. Yeah, I can't really stand much of the stuff that comes out today. I still pine for the sounds of the late 80's to mid-90's.

    Rakim was supposed to do an album with Dre. That would have been sick.
    The whole Hiero crew
    Pharcyde
    Zion-I
    Jedi Mind Tricks
    Black Moon, Boot Camp, Smif & Wessun (Duck Down)
    The Frontline

    I like your taste. Rakim is probably the GOAT. Pharcyde was great, so creative. I love all of Boot Camp, don't forget Heltah Skeltah. If I'm not mistaken Boot Camp Clik is comprised of Black Moon, SmifnWessun(Cocoa Brovaz), Heltah Skeltah, Starang Wonda. Duck Down is there clothing line and another name they use for themselves. I love hip hop from all around but the 90's New York hip hop has my heart.

    That was the Last Emperor, he did Comic Book characters battling famours rappers.

  29. The hip hop world is full of studio gangsters. Im hopeing the whole bling bling era disapears soon. Before hip hop does die.

  30. I don't think that true Hip Hop is in any real danger at the moment. Gift of Gab, Eyedea, Sage Francis, and Atmosphere (maybe more I cannot remember) were all signed to Epitaph at one point, though Eyedea has now formed a punk band and Gift of Gab is no longer on the label. And since, they have picked up Dangerdoom.

    I do know what you are saying though. Mainstream rap continues to perpetuate racial stereotypes for the purpose of capital gain, thereby shining a negative light on one of the most intricate and complicated Musical art forms.

  31. Mainstream hip hop is pure garbage. No such thing as lyrics.

    Although - I really liked Luda's recent song (maybe it's titled Runaway or something of the sort). I think this was his answer to Pac's Keep Ya Head Up (and the rest of his positive songs) to show he (Luda) has that versatility.

    Now - we have sh*t like Ballin' (or whatever that song is called) being played all over the air waves.

    Armed to the teeth.

    I actually have an appointment to get Aesop's None Shall Pass album cover tattooed on me Mani, should be fairly sick.

    I'm not a huge, huge fan of the Living Legends as a collective, I end up liking their work on the solo merit more. Murs especially.

    And I f'ing love Lucy Ford. Best Atmos., album by far.

  38. Dude that is gonna be a sick tat...that album cover is sick.

    I actually haven't even had a chance to listen to that album yet, but I have seen it.

    I also prefer the legends seperately...my personal favs are probably Grouch and Eligh, although Murs is sick.

    You gotta post pics after you get that ink man
    Armed to the teeth.

  39. I definitely will. It's going to have to be big enough to get those dark lines on there, to give it that cartoony look.

  40. You get that tat yet Mullet...?
    Armed to the teeth.
