    Recently the true form of Hip Hop has made a huge comeback. With artists from the States and the United Kingdom making waves in the music world. Hip Hop has gone back to what it used to be. All about the beats and sick lyrics. No longer do we have to subject ourselves to 50cent and Pdiddy and others of low class.

    If you are into hip hop or want to get into hip hop jus post a question here or tell us what your favourite hip hop artist is and/or song.

    This thread can also be used to talk about Drum And Bass and the whole Ambient movement of chill out music.

    Ah dude, I love you. There's been way too much negativity towards hiphop on the boards recently, where are dudes like Raoul and Madvillain when you need 'em?!

    Basically, I don't know shit about hiphop, but I love it. I've been listening to it a lot lately. You'll find that some amazing talent is emerging from Australia, too, although I don't think any artists have really broken into international waters yet.

    My only fear is that the commercial minions are starting to take notice. If they rape Aussie hiphop, I will cry, as it has been a place of sanctuary for me for a while.

    Favourite Australian hiphop song is States of Transit by 'The Herd'. They have this amazing sound that fuses that traditional urban sound with traditional instrumental music, and they sound really Aussie without being a total cliche.

    Favourite US song at the moment is 'Slow Down Ghandi' by Sage Francis.

    And I love my Mike Skinner, so The Streets' 'Stay Positive'. Or like... any of his tracks. Love him.

    Nas isn't my favorite rapper, but Illmatic is my favorite album.

    I've heard about this. Glad to see great artists coming in.

    Unfortunately, MTV will probably try to smite them.

    Hip Hop is an incredible musical genre I think, despite what the mainstream has done to it.

    Currently my favorite albums in the hip hop genre are

    Mos Def and Talib Kwali are Blackstar


    Anticon Label Sampler 1999 -2004

    Amen. All these myopic metal heads (not that there is anything wrong with metal, I love that too) bashing everything they can't be bothered to learn about. So what have I heard lately that's cool...

    I just got the latest Sage Francis cd, Personal Journals. I think he may have a new one out this week or next. I will probably get that as well.

    And once again I will mention Gold Chains. This guy is a mix of hip hop and electronica. He has become an obsession.

    His newest album is actually A Healthy Distrust, it came out on Febuary 8th officially, but most major music stores don't have it in yet.

    please post in Hip Hop Topic Now due to the fact that the threads manager is no longer a memeber. :).

    I'm confused with how him no longer being a member has any bearing on this thread.

    I want to know how you cut and paste someone else's post, start a new thread, then 'manage' it.

    Ok, so what do people rate as most important in an MC's abilities?

    Is it the way they flow (fast, smooth, shifting it about, etc)?

    What they write (the rhyming, humour, etc)?

    Or their voice (tone, personality, expression, etc)?

    I rate the music to be the most important. Innovative, real musicianship.

    Then there is lyrical content. The message is important.

    Then comes being sly. It has to be entertaining after all, that goes back to the music.

    And a lot of people don't realise that hiphop vocals still have to be pitched correctly; harmonious with the instrumental sections of the music. So don't say rapping is an easy way out!
