So I'm not the worlds biggest rap and hip hop fan, but I really like the direction it is heading. I just discovered this up and coming rapper named Gil AKA Pissed Off Gil AKA G McFosho. In my opinion, his music provides a refreshing twist on the stale, shallow and superficial music known as mainstream hip hop.

Here is his first single Rifle Burs from his yet to be released album, Gil Killed Hip Hop. I suggest reading the video description before watching the video, as it provides some context for Gil's hard hitting lyrics.

Gil has flow like the Nile, and his lyrics paint a vivid picture that can spark deep primal emotions in even the most emotionless robots. His unique and unusual beats provide the perfect backdrop for his poetry and really ties it all together.

If more and more modern rappers follow Gil's lead, I think I might become a huge fan of modern Rap and Hip Hop. I really like the direction the Hip Hop industry is taking.

What does the Pit think? do you guy see a place for intellegent rappers like Gil in the the world of modern Hip Hop?

The average 'famous' Hip Hop/Rap 'artist,' if you wanna call 'em that, no longer has anything relevant, valid, or intelligent to say. The genre saw its peak in the late 80s / early 90s, and that peak is not coming back.

oh, your surprised that a rap artist isn't a sell out?

lots of hip hop artists nowadays still make great rap with meaning:

Binary star, Immortal technique, Mr green ( only instrumentals ), cunninLynguists...ect

But true, hip - hop saw its peak with Tupac, Tribe called quest, biggie, ice cube, outkast,....in the 80s/90s

Respect. They get all of their deserved recognition for their music, but I feel they are very underrated lyrically.

I feel like guys like the Roots, Mos Def, and Talib Kweli, set the stage for intelligent 21st century hip hop, and while it isn't in the mainstream, it will exist. Though with Donald Glover (Childish Gambino) getting involved, there's bound to be some more interest.

And yes, I watched the opening video. Here's my response.

Atlien was their best lyrically. Stankonia was their best musically.

I don't wanna hear it. Hip Hop is alive and kicking, and it's still flourishing into infinity.

I agree, Childish Gambino is definitely drawing more interest to this style of rap music. Also. IMDABES is another great example of how Gil can utilize incredibly unique beats to drive his messages home.

Kid cudi, kanye west, and Odd Future have all cut albums in the past few years that were like nothing anybody had heard before. I really don't know what you guys are talking about.

EDIT: Das Racist and Childish gambino are both awesome as fuck too.

We are saying how we enjoy the fresh direction Rap is heading and how we like that Artists like Das Racist, Childish Gambino, and Odd Future are become more of a mainstream thing instead of an underground scene.

Yeah, it's not like My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is a notoriously groundbreaking summation of the last 40 years of pop music or anything.

Gambino's great. I listened to Camp for the first time in a month and a half or so the other day and was pleasantly surprised I still liked it. "You See Me" is dope.
