My personal favorite Tupac song is Tradin War Stories and Changes. The rappers featured on that track are better than 90% of the ones nowadays.

here's another real track:



my problem with modern hiphop is the overuse of sounds that just add confusion and drown out anything good.

German hip-hop is done. There was some good stuff like 8-10 years ago, but now it's basically only mugs left.

It's not possible to pick just one.

It all depends on what mood I'm in. I love everything on the Killuminati album, though. All Eyez on Me was awesome too, but Killuminati was fire from track 1 to 12.

I love hip-hop, but I don't really like anything from the past 10 years (except for maybe some Jay-Z, DJ Quik, and Ludacris). Everything now is crap. I like 80's and 90's rap - 2Pac, Biggie, Snoop, Dr. Dre, Public Enemy, A Tribe Called Quest, LL, Run-DMC, Grandmaster Flash, etc. I liked a lot of it from back then.

I wouldn't go as far as saying everything now is crap. There is still some good stuff ebing made out there. But the good stuff has more old school feel to it. Here's an example:



Hip Hop is not dead. At least not yet.

"Hip Hop ain't dead it just had a heart attack, but you see I keep it pumping".
-Lil Wayne (what's ironic is that he is the heart attack)

I'm not a big rap fan, but I do have a few favorites within the genre. "Revolutionary, Vol. 2" from Immortal Technique is one of my favorite albums, and I love some stuff from A Tribe Called Quest, Talib Kweli, and Public Enemy.

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.

Not a fan of hip-hop music especially the current generation but a good album to add is "I'll sleep when you're dead" from El-P who's quite an open-mind able to work with Zach De la Rocha or jam with Yo la Tengo for instance.
