It's truly self explanatory. Just listen to the end.

I always say r.i.p. hip hop 1977-2000. There is actually a lot of really good hip hop out there. Unfortunately the mainstream does not have any of it. The biggest thing these days is getting into the club. You do not need meaningful music to do that.

Many people got pissed off when Nas came out with an album called hip hop is dead. I guess the truth hurts.

Man this takes a massive **** all over mainstream stuff. I love it.

Old school hip hop ftw. The stuff they got on MTV is redefining hip-hop in the worst way. It's sickening.

Like gun4hire said, I usually can't stand this type of stuff, but man...*favorited*.

That's probably true, I'm new to the rap game tbh, I heard Nas (sp?) on The Colbert Report and thought he was incredible so I got into a few other people like him, Rap is best when it has a cause I find and people like Nas, Tupac (once again sp?) and Zach De La Rocha (not very Hip-hop) definately seemed to have strong causes and that's why I love hearing them.

You need to look way further than that.

First port of call should be the hip hop thread in the Other music forum.

Alot mainstream rap is garbage just like alot of mainstream rock is garbage. You gotta look deeper

Check out guys like Atmosphere, Wu-Tang, Immortal Technique, Akir, Living Legends, Jedi Mind Tricks, Loop Troop, Visionaries, Perceptionists, Binary Star, Shad K, Classified, Shaun Boothe, Sage Francis

You wanna hear a great meaningful song with a very funny music video, check this out

The actual song starts at 0:51

In business news, it seems the gas crises
Was really just a marketing scheme to jack prices
And judging by how high they are
We'll get the electric chair before the electric car
But with all the poverty and violence
No one got time to worry bout the environment
70 acres of nature are lost each minute
And possibly the cure to alotta disease with it
Sad but true, but don't worry
You'll forget it by tomorrow afternoon
Travis, back to you

that was awesome. finally someone is saying exacty what i'm trying to say. Hip-Hop isn't what it used to be. It's just a crock of **** masquerading behind a danceable groove. That is unless you're listening to Nas, Mos Def, and Common. That's okay. But the message black music is sending to their culture isn't helping any of us who take time out of our busy day to buy their ****ty music about killing people, cumming on some ho's face or packaging the cocaine and sending it off.

BLATENT AND POOR QUALITY RIP OFF OF SAUL WILLIAMS

I'm falling up flights of stairs,
scraping myself from the sidewalk,
jumping from rivers to bridges,
drowning in pure air.
Hip hop is lying on the side of the road,
half dead to itself.
Blood scrawled over its mangled flesh, like jazz,
stuffed into an oversized record bag.
Tuba lips swollen beyond recognition.
Diamond-studded teeth strewn like rice at Karma's wedding.
The ring bearer bore bad news.
Minister of information wrote the wrong proclamation.
And now everyone's singing the wrong song.
Dissonant chords find necks like nooses.
That nigga kicked the chair from under my feet.
Harlem shakin from a rope, but still on beat.
"Damn, that loop is tight."
That nigga, found a way to sample the way the truth the light.
Can't wait to play myself at the party tonight.
Niggas are gonna die.
Cop car swerves to the side of the road.
Hip hop takes its last breath.
The cop scrawls vernacular manslaughter on a yellow
pad, then balls the paper into his hand,
deciding he'd rather free-style.
"You have the right to remain silent."
"You have the right to remain silent."
And maybe you should have
maybe you should have
before your bull**** manifested.

These thugs can't **** with me,
they're too thugged out.
Niggas think I'm bugged out, 'cause I ain't Sean John or Lugged out.
This ain't hip hop no more, son, it's bigger than that.
This ain't ghetto no more, black, it's bigger than black.
So where my aliens at?
Girl, we all illegal.
This system ain't for us.
It's for rich people.
And you ain't rich, dawg, you just got money.
But you can't buy **** to not get hungry.

Telegram to Hip Hop:
Dear Hip Hop. (stop)
This **** has gone too far. (stop)
Please see that turntables and mixer are returned to Kool Herc. (stop)
The ghettos are dancing off beat. (stop)
The master of ceremonies have forgotten
that they were once slaves and have neglected
the occasion of this ceremony. (stop)
Perhaps we should not have encouraged them
to use cordless microphones, for they have
walked too far from the source and
are emitting a lesser frequency. (stop)
Please inform all interested parties that
cash nor murder have been included to list of elements. (stop)
We are discontinuing our current line
of braggadocio, in light of the current trend in "realness". (stop)
As an alternative, we will be
confiscating weed supplies and
replacing them with magic mushrooms, in hopes
of helping niggas see beyond their reality. (stop)
Give my regards to Brooklyn.

These cats can't **** with me, I purr purple
Sold, increased, toe shell like a turtle
I walk the streets like the lie that I'm telling
One listener grips me and starts yellin
I see through speakers, I speak what's seen
I eat and shed, I sleep and dream
I walk the streets of London like "know what I mean?"
And chillin at waggamama
eatin crib soy beans

It's like that.

I'm glad I was listening to Scroobius Pip when I clicked that link. I don't know exactly what constitutes 'hip-hop' but Scroobius Pip is fantastic, regardless.
