OT: Real Hip Hop
October 26, 2010 04:42PM
For the first time in a long time been listing to more hiphop than "new" reggae. Feeling the Black Redemption 10"s that I recently got but other than that it has been the music of my youth. Now playing...whatcha got spinning? Warning to those with soft ears, grown up material contained.

Black Milk - AOTY, went and checked this show out in SF. Hands down one of the best live shows ive seen in quite a while.

please note that Jay Z is one of the greatest Hip Hop artists of all time and he also deals in Pop drivel...that Pop drivel is what brings home the bacon.

Agreed Ninja as with reggae some of the most talented in the industry are those who are the icons who last throughout the years.

Yes agreed also Higrade1 stones throw is one of my favs. The links I posted above are closely related to the ST/Dilla vein...Guilty is a ST recording artist, Black Milk and SlumV/Dilla work(ed) together etc. I enjoy the classic but really loving some newer material as of late and reggae just keeping up with my tastes. I guess it has something to do with the limited about of topics on any given reggae album or riddum. I love me some reality.

On the topic of Stones Throw...Mayer Hawthorne gets crazy love from the hiphop world because of his roots in underground hiphop. His show this month is SF is already sold out and last time he was here for an "appearance" the line wrapped around the block.




Wish it would rain

Another artist to chew on that I have posted here in the past...Invincible. Talib Kweli calls her one of the best MCs he's ever heard, male or female. She has a song on "The Left - Gas Mask" referenced above w a killer reggae sample.




sledgehammer

Actually just bought this 45!

"that Pop drivel is what brings home the bacon..."
sorry that means nothing. the fact he has made money selling his drivel to the mindless youth of america does not make him one of the greatest.... its not about the money.... that is one of the many problems with the music industry... people with money as the motivation and not enough people doing it for the love.... not saying Jay-Z doesn't love rapping, but he uses the whole money driven MTV pop drivel formula that i just can't get down with, let alone call it hip-hop........

Onra feat T3





"There were so many songs in the '90s that sampled '80s funk and modern soul," Onra says. "That's the feeling I wanted to have on my album. I had to find a way of recreating their feeling, but with a fresher touch."
Re: OT: Real Hip Hop

A couple of great samples on this one, the poor people governor and of course 2 mc's killing it.

Re: OT: Real Hip Hop
October 28, 2010 06:10AM
actually NO, it isn't about taste in this case. I may think A Rod sucks but he will be in the hall of fame regardless of my opinion of his "game". It is about having one of the greatest Hip Hop records of all time in Reasonable Doubt. Any MC will tell you that lyrically Jay Z is Sick. As to many of the pop tunes he makes... for example New York, that is a dope cut. Is it the end all be all? No but don't hate on someone for making pop records when they have the skill to leave you dead on the stage (lyrically of course). Talk about someone who sells Pop drivel who actually can't rhyme like 50 Cent. Leave Lil Wayne and Jay Z out of it, both of them could rhyme circles around the vast majority of so called underground MC's. If you disagree with me I am going to send Freddie Foxxx to see you.
Re: OT: Real Hip Hop
October 28, 2010 06:44AM
Hmmm...well I do actually like the "New York" tune, but all-in-all, I yearn for the lyrics of the era you made in post #2, the thing I grew up on. Jay-Z and Lil Wayne, and many before them, have debased the thing so much I can't be bothered any more. In fact the last hip-hop CD I had on heavy rotation came from Jeru, and that was when I was buying actual CD's...

of course we yearn for real Hip Hop...I don't listen to Jay Z records for the most part or Lil Wayne. I used to dis Lil Wayne until I heard him freestyle. I can't diss people who can freestyle for 17 minutes at a time. Canibus is my all time favorite EMCEE as far as lyrics that you have get and then go back and get more and then go back and realize you need a dictionary...I'm like a Shaolin Monk on Krunk, Holdin himself up with his thumb on a stump.....Canibus....all time favorite for pure lyrical terrorism. No one else can destroy everything within a 20 square miles then way he can.

I don't think you can summarize the career and entrepreneurial accomplishments of Jay-Z by saying "he uses the whole money driven MTV pop drivel formula." He clearly is a pioneer, and if anything, created a formula all of his own- not to mention one of the best rappers in history- and a businessman.

Also, you realize his big single not too far back was "Death of Autotune"- I don't think that would be following some "MTV pop drivel forumla"- thats a ballsy move- and look what it did- I think it had a big impact on many genres of "pop" music- he proved it was lame... nice work...

Should it matter his motivation? That's what too many people do with reggae artists, you have to respect them as an artist/entertainer... Whatever the motivation, its the music created that really matters, and will live on in history...

I have been thinking about gregory isaacs lately, what is his motivation for writing night nurse, or rumors? I could sit here and speculate all day- but instead of doing that, I just listen to his music and take from it what it means to me. It evokes emotion, it makes me think, it makes me happy/sad... The same analogy can be applied to Jay-Z music- instead of listening in my mind thinking "oh this bastard is filthy rich and is just selling tons of albums"- I actually listen to the art he created- and I appreciate it. I don't care why he made it, or what his motivation was...

let alone call it hip-hop? what do you call it?

Re: OT: Real Hip Hop
October 28, 2010 11:26AM
Of course we all have opinions- "crappy" to me= poor in quality, garbage, sh!tty... when I think of any Jay-Z album these are the last things that come to mind- both the music (arrangement, instrumentation, production) and the lyrics are on top to me- leading the industry.

I mean, the guy took a sample of a clarinet in D.O.A. and turned that into a HUGE single- I can't really think of who else has done that or would even try to do that. This is not really characteristic of someone who is using some MTV formula- he made his own rules, and it worked.

Jay is among the masters of the genre- that is undeniable.

@el abayarde, back in the day hip-hop heads would argue who was the best lyricist. Nowadays they argue who made the most money for the year.
Like Busta said in his LONS days: rap is business music, hip-hop is cultural music.

"Still kickin myself for missing that Black Milk show, love that DEEtroit sound!! "

My man the live show is so good, actually i think the songs translate better live. I was looking around like damn why is it that me and my boy are the only two people I know here?...not that we know each other.

I grew up in the Detroit area and all these cats used to come and rock at the reggae parties and vise versa. I don't get why there is little crossover with the bay area audience. Seems like bay reggae heads just want to hear "club bangers rap" with the exception of the beat junkies and papalote crews.

Here is a reggae hiphop song from Detroit artists..Paradime is actually Kid Rocks dj but gets lots of love regardless of how people feel about KR.

What we're gonna do right here is go back. Way back. Back into time........

25 sure shots from the past. If you don't know, now you know.





































































































from a previous thread - "There’s a cycle that happens to Black music. About 20 years after the music has been released, hipsters and DJs rediscover the music–and champion it once again, oftentimes rewriting the history that comes with it. It happened with jazz, the blues, soul, free jazz, funk, fusion, and now it’s happening again with hip-hop. Hipsters and DJs do two things–they create audiences for previous musical genres and they recontextualize the music at the same time."

in response to the "previous thread" please do not forget about the millions on us that happened to be born lucky enough to witness the birth of Hip Hop, realize it's power and never went anywhere to begin with. This is not re discovery by "hipsters" and DJ's. This is Hip Hop Music, it has been here and in the immortal words of the Blastmaster will be here FOREVER.

Well thanks for chiming in but i think the contributors to this thread would disagree. The point was to highlight quality new(ish) hip hop music. There are at least 20-30 tracks above that is you are interested in checkin you might get the idea.

It's amazing how I always feel the love when I come around this forum.(sp)
I was actually making a really out of the box reference to a slogan from the Canadian Rap Battle League called "King of The Dot". They say, "Hip Hop ain't dead, it lives in the the North". Not really surprised that it wasn't picked up on. Good look on the beat though.

"Not really surprised that it wasn't picked up on."

Ya did ever get into it but since I used to be able to see Canada from my house (really) i actually have heard of the King of the TDot thing. Just checked it out and wow haven't heard 2 white boys calling each other wigger in jeez 20 years. So yes it did go over my head. I was just actually trying to point out that implying dancehall has in someway replaced good hiphop is a dis to all the good music people have shared here. So truly,... respect and don't be put off by my gruff tone via keyboard im actually much more unpleasant in person. Especially today, its kinda a Guilty kinda day.

Word i hear ya. If i want something to "slap" i got nuff dancehall to move me. To much hiphop is just a 808 and some formula lyrics. Came up in the underground hiphop and never have really taken too much of the mainstream. That Mistah Fab is in heavy rotation for me for obvious reasons.

The track on this is CRAZY imo. Just scooped the 45 and couldnt b more pleased.
