Re: Hip Hop Discussion Thread

Best albums solely produced and rapped on by one person? Meaning the artist IS the producer.

That eliminates Kanye's last few albums because he didn't handle all the production(College Dropout is probably the only one that TRULY counts here due to Brion and DJ Toomp's presence on the next two). Can include guest verses.

Gotta start with Dr. Dre - The Chronic, which was a game changer. Side A(yeah that was a tape era album, LOL) is still one of the most incredible runs of songs you'll see. Introduced Snoop who would quickly be THE man in rap from that point until the murder case put a pause on things, you had a great crew of MC's from Rage to Kurupt and Daz, and RBX, and Dre sounded great on the mic on that album. His best performance by far.




I'm going to throw Pete Rock - Soul Survivor WAY up the list too. Pete did some incredible things on that album.....namely he had a TON of guest rappers, and they all fit their tracks like gloves, and it all sounded cohesive and like a "Pete Rock" album. The album flowed perfectly, despite the diversity. Pete did a competent job in his first album where he really rapped a lot, and then you just had an incredible list of rappers on that album bringing their A games....Inspectah Deck, Kurupt, Ghostface, Raekwon, Prodigy, Black Thought, Common, Big Pun, OC, MC Eiht, etc.




My third is a recent one....Q-Tip - The Renaissance. It amazes me that he could make an album so good almost 20 years into his career. I was NOT expecting that album to be so dope. And he might deserve some bonus points as there weren't guest rappers. He was the rapper and the producer, so in the spirit of this question....he truly held that album down in every way possible. He did what a lot of "grown man rap" albums fail to do.....made CATCHY music that sounds fun and not angry and bitter.





That's my personal top 3.

LOL at "not saying on the internet". All you got to do is state the obvious...."BURBS". That's good enough, nobody truly cares where you live beyond that.

Would it kill you to admit you don't know what you're talking about, just once? I mean, you very rarely know what you're talking about. And nobody ever really presses you to admit it, we basically just let you live. But right here? I'd love to here an "I'm wrong" out of your think you know it all ass.
Since where did you come to the conclusion I live in the burbs? Such a generalization. Don't see why I would bother to tell you since you already have a mental profile about who I am.

You don't even have proof you live and/or lived in the hood, so stop trying to pose on the internet because you heard Illmatic.

About Kanye though, the paparazzi may be bad people (Though everyone has to make money and one of them seemed to be a cool person.) but at the end of the day they're paparazzi. They come with the territory. Grow up and deal with it. It's happened to every celebrity and it will continue to do so. Him fighting them, isn't helping his situation.

I haven't provided proof that I have a dick either.....you want me to prove that too?

Your ducking/squirming/taking it as an insult makes it pretty obvious where you're from. Don't know why you're insecure about it though, I didn't say it's a bad thing. It's only a bad thing when you try to talk like you know something about places you clearly don't know about.

You don't know shit about who black kids in the hood look up to.....and acting like you do? THAT is the only posing going on here.

And yeah, I heard Illmatic.....in 1994 on tape. You? Want me to prove that too? Should I have saved the receipt? Want to see my old Walkman cassette player too? I still got it along with shoeboxes full of tapes from back then.

You want to continue, hit my inbox and I'll be happy to tell you what's what. I ain't clogging up the thread arguing with your ass anymore.

And even If I told you whether I live in the burbs, unless I gave you an exact city, which I'm not going to do for some random stranger on the internet, there's no point in answering your question. If I said I lived in the hood, you wouldn't believe me, because you alreafy said in your head that I'm from the suburbs, which I'm not but ok.

And what proof is it that I don't know what you're talking about? Where is the evidence that I "don't know shit about the hood?"

I'm not taking insult to the fact you said I'm from the burbs, I'm taking insult to the fact you tried to determine who I am as a person and where I grew up/lived in based off a few posts on an online forum.

Re: Hip Hop Discussion Thread

Guess rap music influenced crime than 20 years ago when N.W.A. & Snoop were popular, by your logic, since kids in the hood are going to wear skirts since Kanye did it. (Especially when the majority of rap consumers are white).

Re: Hip Hop Discussion Thread

To those who actually want to talk about music.....


Anyone here listen to Tanya Morgan? If not, don't be put off by the name. It's not a early 2000's neo-soul singer.....it's a rap group. Damn good one too.

They've been quietly putting out good music for a minute. This new one they got out(Rubber Souls) BANGS.

Re: Hip Hop Discussion Thread

Well he's right. There are going to be kids that will wear skirts because Kanye West or A$AP Rocky did it. Not really kids, more like teenagers. They dress like how they see their favorite rappers dressing. That's always been the case with rappers fashion so I don't really see why someone would argue against that...
