Damn, you guys don't actually have a bad taste. I was expecting a lot of MTV garbage in this thread, but instead I see some good artists and albums from the classic era
I'm more into classic 90's hip-hop (some 80's stuff too), especially East Coast hip-hop. I grew up on listening to ATCQ, De La Soul, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, The Roots etc. I like today's hip-hop too but it's mostly artists that either started in the 90's and managed to stay relevant till this day, or artists who follow in their footsteps. My favorite MC's as of now are Common and Nas (especially these two), The Game, Ludacris, Q-Tip, Talib Kweli, Sean Price, Jay-Z, Termanology...
I was also recently at B.o.B's concert, this guy is T.I.'s protégé and I hope he will get big in the future. His performance was impressive, he can play guitar, rap and sing. It's always good to see a new artist who can give you hopes that hip-hop has a future http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fu...deoid=50220613
I'll post some of my favorite songs when I'm bored
BTW in the past couple of years I've moved from hip-hop to soul music, and now I also listen to a lot of the 70's soul that hip-hop often samples from.
