I feel like this would be a great place to swap and share songs from hip hop artists who need more exposure.

If you're someone who doesn't like hip hop; this might be the thread that gets you into more meaningful hip hop/rap than what is heard on the radio.

I'm a huge fan of the Blue Scholars, I listen to most of Bayani almost every day, here's a few of my favorites off the album.

I've heard good things about the Cunning Linguists, haven't listened to them much though.

Go!

Wouldn't this be more appropriate in bands and artists? Considering someone started a rap thread yesterday and it got closed?

how about the way your entire country generalizes a culture by the actions of a few, citing any Americans idea of a middle eastern person.

Meh I prefer rap talking about bitches and shizzle. Just as long as their actually good rappers - For example, Tupac in his song Hit Em Up. His delivery is good and its quite an enjoyable song.. And then Eminem. I just strongly dislike all of his new stuff. Real slim shady is just epic in comparison to shit like love the way you lie. And I hate the craze of teen girls all like Omg yh i luff eminem cuz he raps about real lyf n tuff ;] <3. **** THAT SHIT.

/Rant over.

But I do like some meaningful rap.. like Public Enemy, Harder than you think is genius.. But when black people rap about black rights now in the modern day it pisses me off. In most society people are equal. Yeah okay there are racists, but that will never go away.. I'm still awaiting a rapper that has lyrics about modern day, middle eastern issues, such as the happenings in Israel, and more relevant to me, issues such as Pakistani governance and the world's view on it, creating a bias against them because of Bin Laden, or even in the UK, political rap - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dl1jPqqTdNo.Personally, topics such as these takes precedence over the rights of blacks now (No offense intended, its just that music which tackle oppression and world issues needs to move on) Politically aware rappers need to become more lyrically sound with their music. Immortal Technique, Lupe Fiasco, artists like these are good. But I think the world needs more.
