I believe last time that was tried it resulted in Limp Bizkit and Korn.

Enough said.
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

Sure, rap/hip-hop doesn't get nearly the respect it deserves on this site. Rap artists like K-0S use guitars on lots of their songs, and rock artists like RHCP and RATM (even though I don't really like them) have a lot of rap/hip-hop influence.

I'd go for it. Just make sure you have a good writer doing the hiphop part. Writing good lyrics is so damn important in hiphop. If you dont have some proper writing you might quickly be put off as a second Limp Bizit or something.
#11
I know that there are alot of rap/rock bands but you could do something new and original and change the face of rap/rock

look at zeppelin- blues was being performed way before them but they took it to a whole new level.

Just try it out- you should only play music with the people you love; regardless of what style you play

It might sound awesome or it might sound abysmal. But by all means try it.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

Surely zeppelin esque blues rock mixed with hip hop is exactly what rage were...

And they rock. Ergo cool idea if done well.

They had a more metal influence, although there was a little bit of blues in there.

I meant more in the sense of the direct influence of led zep's blues based riffs on rage.

You could check out Chris Thomas King to see some blues hip hop. There are a couple of other blues guys that use samples too but i can't think of any names off the top of my head.

If done well, it could work, if not, then no. But I guess that's how most things are.

Oh, and it's 'yea,' not 'yay.'

Zeppelin being more metal than blues? Do me a favor and actually go listen to some of their songs.
#21
Mos Def uses some rock/blues music on a few of his songs, and he's a hell of a rapper.
So yeah. Give it a shot.

it depends what side your gonna lean on. like, if you do some hard rocking sh*t with some rap-ish vocals, i probably wouldnt mind it. but if you lean the other way, i start finding it pretty stupid to even include the guitars in there.

example: rage VS. family force 5
