Good rap?
Like the name of the thread suggests, what are some good rap songs to start me off? I haven't heard anything that's not mainstream and I'm sure there's great stuff. Didn't see a reccommendation thread here, so here's my request. Thanks in advance. :cheers:

lifeless2112 youre a small minded idiot, of coarse theres good rap, try listening to Tupac, or maybe Andre nickatina, tupac actually has some acoustic rap songs which are pretty sick, check out "thugz mansion" the acoustic version

lol rap sucks hardcore, stay away from rap and listen to talented music!

xsilly goosex 07-01-2005 10:35 PM

oh and like listening to slayer is any better^^^

if all youre gonna do is just bash on rap, u dont deserve to post in these forums

greenday1182 07-01-2005 10:36 PM

listen to old rap like 2pac and BIG, new rap like nelly and lil jon is HORRIBLE. some good rap is 2pac, BIG, dr.dre, eminem,nas,obie trice,snoop dogg,NWA,G Unit, the game, D 12, and 50 cent. those are some good rappers (these are all in my opinion)

to start off, try listening to 2pac, becasue he is considered one of the greatest, if not THE greatest, rapper of all time.

listening to slayer is way better thank you very much.

Rap sucks! There is thing called underground hip hop. Artist that MTV and FAME. Atomsphere, KRSONE, Jurasic 5, Living Legends, Sage Francis, and Rakim and Eric 5. Stay away from MTV and radio music. You rather have a real women not porn mag.

Ya, I was wondering too, wtf? First you give a normal reccommendation thanks a lot but then you go flame Slayer indirectly. Have an open mind, listen to stuff and respect other peoples preferences. Jeeze, I make a thread about rap and get ******s within a few minutes. Ya thanks for telling me rap sucks, I came in here to get some and someone has the nerve to go tell me that. I just want something different. :cheers:

EDIT: to hellcat28. I didn't say I want rap from MTV. I said good rap. Period. Not hip-hop. Read the title and the post. If you're not going to be helpful then don't post although I'll check those out anyways.

Talib Kwali, Jurassic 5, Mos Def, prodigy(of mobb deep), Immortal Techniqe, and outkast are all great introductions to the world of good hip hop.

Shut the fuck up, please.
As for good rap, try the Roots. I could listen to "Phrenology" all day long.

Has anyone else noticed that, in any Rap thread, all the people who like rap type properly and eloquently, whereas all the people who claim that rap is bad type like complete fucking morons?

Anyway, try The Goats, they're a rap band with proper instruments and everything, as are Ozomatli, The Roots. Dr Octagon and Dr Dooom are bloody good (they're both Kool Keith). As for older stuff, you can't go wrong with Dre's The Chronic or Doggystyle by Snoop Doggy Dogg. Look into The Great Adventures Of Slick Rick too, he's a brilliant rapper and about a million times funnier than Eminem.
