I've always really disliked rap but today my friend threw on Jay-Z's Forever young (remix of a mid 80's song). It was really chill and I liked it a lot, so could someone throw out some chill rappers that might be somewhat similar to this song?

Thanks in advance

Numb/Encore - Jay-Z and Linkin Park

Handlebars - Flobots (pretty much rap but the lyrics are AMAZING(its about america))


uhhhhh i dunno what else i can think of


edit: Colt .45 - Afroman. you'll laugh your ass of if you havent heard it yet


doubleedit: on itunes its called Crazy Rap (Colt 45 & 2 zigzags)


yet another edit: v this guy below me needs to look up in the dictionary what an opinion is. also, those are good songs to listen to is you already like rock. The Jay-Z/Linkin park song is before the Minutes To Midnight era, so it's still pretty good stuff.

Ok forget what the last guy said, Flobots ****ing sucks, and Jay-Z ****ing sucks, and most of all, Linkin Park ****ing sucks.

Necro is a sick rapper. Check out songs like South of Heaven, and his old freestyles and stuff,

also, Big L is ****ing sick, check out a song called Put it On

ALSO, Linking park ****ing sucks.

P.S. Flobots and jay-z are ****ing gay too.

So tell me, what is it about those 3 artists that makes them so much worse than any other musician out there? Sure, I'll agree with you Linkin Park kinda lost their sound at Minutes To Midnight, but tell me what makes them all so inferior?

This thread started sucking after the first post.

Whether Linkin Park sucks or not? Who cares. What matters is that it is not good rap to a 'rap hater' as TS is calling himself.

Instead, you fools should recommend something that is a good representation of hip hop; something which Linkin Park is NOT.

TS, come post in the 'good rap thread'... we're much smarter than most of the fools posting in this thread.

Beastie Boys are definitely a great way to bridge the gap between Rock and Rap and help you appreciate the rap side more.

A lot of people who dislike rap tend to like Immortal Technique a lot.

Mos Def, Binary Star, Big L, Hieroglyphics, Cypress Hill, Blackalicious, Nas. Mos Def and Nas in particular may be what you're looking for.

i second the public enemy mention...they're not "chill" but they are appreciated by a hell of a lot of rock fans.

Shut the **** up. Some people like Linkin Park (myself included), and Metallica and Megadeth are good to but not just because they shred.

Anyway, I like think Mos Def is a good rapper.

I didn't even realize they had a new EP out.


Check out Strictly Leakage too if you don't already have it. It's a full length album they released for free last year. It's got some great songs on it too.

You can get it here if you don't have it already: http://www.rhymesayers.com/atmosphere/

Real rap has real flow and real rhymes, with a real beat that has a swing. NOT THAT 1+2+3+4+ SH1T THAT IS ALL THE SAME.

check out mos def, older common, method man, redman, Erik b., rakim, older busta rhymes, snoop dogg, Dr. Dre.

rage against the machine does a good rock rap combo.

Only rap I listen to is Wu Tang. Simply because they don't bull****. They had no bling, piss poor and could rarely shower. Now that's expressing yourself. Not these glorified 'gangstas' who are actually fairly rich.

Blue Scholars and Common Market are two of my favorite rap groups. I'll also throw Jurassic 5 in here...I'm not a big rap fan but all three of these artists are great.

I think with what you are describing I would recommend:

Outkast- albums like ATLIENS, Aquemini
A Tribe Called Quest: ALL of it
The Roots: All of it
Talib Kweli: Album: Quality
Mos Def: Black on both sides, The Ecstatic


Welcome to broadening out!

Wu tang aren't the only rappers that are like that you know... So you shouldn't limit yourself to just one group.
