I didn't neg rep this because anyone is entitled to their opinion, but K'naan is real hip-hop. He's from Somalia. It doesn't get much more hood than that.

So go put your Kanye West CD back on, that is all.

Hahaha. Everything in your post is wrong. Hip Hop is an american artform. I hate kanye more than anyone out in the past 5 years.

Biggie, Nas, old Common, Talib, Cunninlynguinst, Blackalicious, Rhymesayers, Quannum etc is hip hop.

Hiphop is like any other popular music out there. There is some great stuff, and there is a lot of crap too. I didn't start off liking Hiphop too much because I couldn't stand sampling, I thought it was ripping other artists off. But, the fact of the matter is that all popular music today rips off some older music in one form or another. The real creative Hiphop artists know how to put it all together in a way that leaves me often times saying, wow, good stuff...

Agreed but the problem is that it's getting harder and harder to find good artists. It's norm nowadays to just be a worthless thug and put together some catchy chorus while the rest of his body of work sucks donkey balls.

Whatever sounds good in the club is the new hit.

nobody would expect you to like this kind of music....you're an old man...this kind of stuff is way over your head and the aesthetic value of it all is completely lost in your eyes....which is fine, its just a generational gap

just like I can't listen to "Sitting on the Dock of a Bay" and call it a masterpiece, you can't see the value in a guy that is able to sing and do the beat with his mouth at the same time....however, the thing I will take exception to is insinuating retardation over different tastes in music...

I give you credit for learning how to use a computer and the internet given your old age....heck, you may even know how to text message on your phone. These are great strides in technology and it shows that you are trying to keep up with the pace of the world. Understandably, you can't keep up with the ever changing musical landscape, so you resist with bashing those who enjoy it. I guess thats how you are planning on handling your elderly position in society, so I can't be mad at you for it. Just try to keep any references to mentally handicapped people to a minimum.

The song that started this thread is pretty good, and I like the production of the short video, but I don't see what it has to do with the NFL Draft, so I can see how it can get annoying. It's way out of place.

As for hip hop, the mainstream crap gives the entire genre a bad name. There is a ton of great hip hop out there, and I'm thankful for limewire. I've been able to create a great library of hip hop songs. Mostly mid 80s to mid 90s stuff. Before hip hop went main stream. Before garbage rappers became stars.

Anybody that says that the entire genre is crap or that it is not music is very narrow minded.

One other thing, can people let Tupac and Biggie die? Honestly, when they were alive and the biggest thing in hip hop, I didn't think they were all that great. They benefitted from the same thing that a lot of these garbage rappers have benefitted from. Great promotion. If the radios play an artist to death, because are going to buy it. That's what pop music is. I'll give those two credit for being good rappers, but it was the promotion behind them that made them great, not their talent. If a rapper like Keith Murray, for example, had the same promotion that they had... and then got shot to death, he'd be called one of the greatest rappers of all time too.

As a hip hop fan since the early 80s, I have to say that the song you just posted is horrible and is what is wrong with hip hop today. That song is bad on so many different levels.

BTW: it's "isn't", not "ain't".

See, I can do the grammar and spelling smack also.

From a linguistic standpoint, "ain't" is acceptable going by descriptive grammar, which everybody uses. "Ain't" is incorrect in terms of prescriptive grammar, but nobody uses prescriptive grammar. One dialect isn't more correct than another dialect.

I'm just saying. ;D

The song that started this thread is pretty good, and I like the production of the short video, but I don't see what it has to do with the NFL Draft, so I can see how it can get annoying. It's way out of place.

As for hip hop, the mainstream crap gives the entire genre a bad name. There is a ton of great hip hop out there, and I'm thankful for limewire. I've been able to create a great library of hip hop songs. Mostly mid 80s to mid 90s stuff. Before hip hop went main stream. Before garbage rappers became stars.

Anybody that says that the entire genre is crap or that it is not music is very narrow minded.

One other thing, can people let Tupac and Biggie die? Honestly, when they were alive and the biggest thing in hip hop, I didn't think they were all that great. They benefitted from the same thing that a lot of these garbage rappers have benefitted from. Great promotion. If the radios play an artist to death, because are going to buy it. That's what pop music is. I'll give those two credit for being good rappers, but it was the promotion behind them that made them great, not their talent. If a rapper like Keith Murray, for example, had the same promotion that they had... and then got shot to death, he'd be called one of the greatest rappers of all time too.
I'll give you tupac. Listen to ready to die. Biggie was the greatest. Life After Death was not as good. Unbelievable delivery, timing and emphasis. Biggie had skills regardless of promotion. Dude was discovered on the corner in brooklyn freestyling, 2 years later he was the face of hip hop, 1 year later he was dead.

I'll give you that he was good, just like Tupac. Biggie could flow. But I thought there were a number of better rappers who didn't get the promotion that he got. Actually, I was turned off of Biggie when he came out with Juicy. First time I heard it I didn't think that there was anything special about him or the song. Next thing you know he's the biggest thing out. He had a few songs that I liked, but there were too many songs that I didn't really care for. So in my opinion, he wasn't all that great.

I am a sucker for the east coast style of rap. I won't listen to anything from Atlanta.

That beat is nasty. I don't see how anybody couldn't bob their head to that beat and hook.

Well, I can honestly say I've never heard that song, or heard of the rapper. Don't think I heve ever heard most of the rappers mentioned on here.

I'd say that there are elements of that song that sound like it came from the South. I've always felt that some of the worst rap music came out of the South. There are a few rappers from the South that I've liked, but for the most part, it's crap.

My issue with rappers like the guy from the video is the image that they put out there. It's wack to me. That's not his Bently. If those are real chains they're probably not his, he comes off as very unintelligent, and he doesn't flow good at all. As for the beat, I'm not really feeling it all that much.

great! A rapper that also can be a pirate. ARRRRRRRRRRR Boyeeeeeee!

Considering what he gave up to escape Somalia...

...the fact that a pirate incident involving a grenade almost killed him and his brother....

...the anti-pirate sentiment in his songs "TIA", "Somalia", and "People Like Me"...

I doubt he would ever consider being a pirate.

----------------

Honestly, I don't know a whole lot about hip-hop, but I know what I like, and I like it when I find good underground stuff that is intellectually provoking, and has a good beat.

Hip-hop like:
Sage Francis
Common
Mos Def
K'Naan

Even some popular stuff. I really dig that song with TI and Rihanna, "Live your life" - they were playing that all over the NFL draft, too, basically before every commercial break.

I'm not a fan of Heavy Metal. That being Metallica and other bands like that. In Flames is pretty good.

But hip-hop owns heavy metal.



No... it's an artform.


you're an idiot.

So you like commercial catchy tunes. Nothing wrong with that. But this guy is nothing special IMO.

It's a rap music driven world now, what do you expect?

True enough...I have to snicker anytime someone mentions it as being some kind of underground music. There's nothing more mainstream or commercial that that genre is and has been since the late 90's.

Common's newer albums are mostly mtv trash, especially the most recent one, Mos Def is further under the radar, but everyone knows who he is. Sage is fairly underground. Knaan is on madden, nfl network, and he's on th radio quite a bit...
