    I don't know, but I downloaded Tyler's discography. Pretty sick. Speaking of which, I just caught Loiter Squad the other day on AS and I was pretty much laughing my ass off through the whole episode. Maybe it's just my immature sense of humor.

    Anyone into Childish Gambino AKA Donald Glover from COMMUNITY? Calls himself an oreo, because he basically is, and while his beats and instrumentals are pretty mainstream and somewhat generic, I like his work. But then again I like Drake (my favorite is Over) so I probably just have low standards (not necessarily the same as poor taste)
    This was a stupid sig anyway

    And also to ask if anyone knows what happened to the Deltron Event album. Has a release date been specified?

    Saw that earlier and despite me not being a big hip hop fan I think it's fucking amazing that they were able to do it. I think using it to have Tupac do a concert it pretty cool, and him performing with Snoop Dog was too.

    I would have posted it earlier but didn't know where to do it and this thread didn't even come to mind.

    helphelphelp

    I just checked out their wiki and site, they have put out so much stuff that I just don't know where to start y'know?
    I'm not a really big fan of them, but I had a month or so where I downloaded all of their shit. In all of ODD Future, Frank Ocean's Nostalgia/Ultra is by far the best, but it's not rap. The best rap album is Earl, but it's short and very very dirty. (in a playful way, don't let your mom catch you listening though.)

    I was listening to this today for the first time in a while, and I can't get over it. So good.

    Read on wiki it's due out June 2012, iirc. Of course, I could be wrong, and it is Wiki, so don't quote me.

    I agree with Zephos that AP needs more Hip Hop, here's some great Hip Hop that came out the past few years.

    Spoiler:

    For anyone currently following rap they probably heard of Action Bronson who sounds exactly like 90s Ghostface with a bit of influence from G Rap, Raekwon, and has heirs of Pun. He's like a smorgasboard of 90s rappers and is an obvious throwback, almost like if you threw all those listed rappers together in a blender and an albino comes out instead. He has that stream of conscious esque style and constantly references food in his music and is topically fare 90s hardcore rap though he does tend to take himself a lot less seriously than a bunch of rappers back than which is a positive.

    Onra's second instrumental album tends to use Chinese samples instead of vietnamese this time around, and I'm not complaining. I'm not a huge instrumental only fan unless it's Nujabes but I do like his oriental esque sound in here.

    There's a pretty sick remix of Wu tang rapping over one of his beats, I think the song might have been Ice Cream gotta check again

    Spoiler:

    Copywrite's a battle rapper from Colombus Ohio who really has a battle rapper feel to him (i.e. great punchlines, vicious wit, and flow) and he's really a rapper for people who are seem to really like technical rappers (those who consistently line up their syllables and have a bunch of multies while having a complex flow). I do admit that he does sometimes bore me in some songs, and can create some straight up cheesy shit (his newest album sucks and isn't worth posting any songs from there) not to mention that he's also kind of a huge douche irl. He's also boys with Cage or was and had a small beef with Esoteric from AOTP

    If you're a fan of his style than check out Diabolic who's also I.T. partner in crime and is pretty much known for his feature in Dance with the devil's epilogue where he ripped his verse to pieces. I find him somewhat monotonous at times but he's also really good when he's serious. He's mostly reknowned for his wordplay and rhyme schemes, though Engineer is a pretty good producer.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9RAofC3LRJs

    ^nice drinking song^, though I found the sample to be pretty meh and could have done away with it.

    Spoiler:

    For anyone who's interested in U.K. rap than I'd suggest listening to either Lowkey or R.A. The former being an I.T. type rapper, I'm not a huge fan of his subject matter but he's sorta like I.T. but touches upon the same subject with more tact and I find him much less irritating. And for people who can't stand U.K. accents in rap than you'd be pleasantly surprised that his accent isn't as egregious as the latter band of mcess hailing from the U.K. as well.


    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EhrYQrLBiTQ

    ^he really rips it around the 3:00 area mark^

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oKOrHAUULrI

    ^Lol I wonder what Zephos thinks of the premise of this song^

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kmBnvajSfWU

    As for R.A. they are imo have some of the best wordplay I've heard in all of Hip Hop and practically turned every idiom into a punchline, however they do sound pretty bland soninically a ton of times. And if you're a not a fan of the U.K. accent you're going to HATE them, but yeah anyone a fan of horrorcore should listen to them.

    Spoiler:


    I'm not really a big fan of this next dude's actual rapping I'm about to post and find him too whiney and melodramatic with an obvious (Atmosphere influence in his music) but his beats are really good and come from Emancipator, who I believe had some relations with Nujabes? Anyone can verify this, and the dude's technical rapping is good I guess (multies out the ass, nice flow and all that) but I'm not interested at all in his lyrics and find his voice to be ear grating. Oh you know who Sadistik reminds me of, Prolyphic.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bLe87OXTokA


    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pfiyF62konU

    I do like this dude's mac lethal's verse in this song though, who's also the acclaimed "fastest rapper in the world, yes faster than Tech n9ne/Bizzy Bone, Twista, etc.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RJeI5WLKRaE

    The next dude Grieves is actually alright, if not pretty good. He's from Seattle and has that whole Rhyme Sayers feel to him, the difference between this dude and the former dude this guy doesn't come of as corny. I don't know he feels authentic and pulls of this whole emotional rap without looking phoney. Highly recommended for Atmosphere fans

    Spoiler:


    Danny Brown's a rapper from Detroit who quite frankly looks like a black yelawolf albeit his music is buttloads better, I get like an Odd Future mixed with MF Doom vibe when I listen to him. He's definitely one of those weird rappers that aren't suited towards everyone, but if you like rappers who don't take themselves too seriously and like to branch out from the norm than he's worth checking out. His beatds definitely suit his odd way of rapping and if you're into rappers who have more charisma rather than those who focus on technical skill than he'll probably click with you.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XE-BZCrcU-w

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YWwO9yq-mvs

    Oh and he doesn't cosign Mac Miller so he's cool in my book, I'm not a fan of frat boy rap.

    Not to be outdone in weirdness or innovativeness is one of the most widely lauded rap albums of 2012, this album is getting critical acclaim in the hipster scene. People proclaiming that it's the Deltron 3030 of our generation or Madvillainy, and than you have those that don't take as kindly to it and find it to be a tired retread full of cliches done by other more innovative groups (Dalek). I'm partly split, I do widely enjoy a lot of the beats but the rapping is quite a turn off, and I enjoy Stream of Consciousness type lyrics as well, but it doesn't do much for me here.

    Spoiler:

    Dessa and Lauryn Hill aren't the only good femcees to bless hip hop's scene, the next rapper kinda sounds like Nicki Minaj albeit it a lot better and has a thick queens accent. Her beats are boom bapish and she has an obvious East Coast influence even though I believe she's from Michigan.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qHyIMj1OCCE

    Speaking of East Coast eque mcees is Reks who has that gritty east coast style with vigor and is of a bit OCD with how much he intricately places his syllables, he's also backed by key producers (Premier, Alchemist, Pete Rock, Hi Tek etc.) If you like "real rap" than check him out.

    Spoiler:


    This guy Kendrick Lamar is getting obscene amount of hype and a lot if it isn't unfounded though I do the question the validty to how true they are. He is a very talented lyricist however and his delivery has that nonchalant sound that makes him seem dispassionate but I kinda like it.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ep0hay4Qw54

    ^Probably one of his most acclaimed songs^

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QqRD_roJjKg

    Although I'm not completely sold on his hype I do like this song

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RJc0M4CjmNg

    And I'm not even sure if Drake constitutes as rap as he does an obscene amount of singing, I'm also not his biggest fan but Take Care has some pretty nice songs I admit. I tend to judge him differently than I do other rappers for some reason and let him get away with being sloppy at times, maybe because of his singing? I don't know whatever the case erase any preconceived notions you may have towards Drake because Take Care is pretty good actually, though I don' think it's great.

    I really like Death Grips, I haven't listened to much rap that feels like theirs, and the beats are delicious.

    I also see you lightweight dissed Lil B. I really don't think dude's a fad, he's so freaking interesting. Most of his songs are jokes, but he puts out so many that it's really tough to not like a couple. I enjoy him at least, his persona maybe more than his actual rapping.

    I don't hate Lil B as much as the groupies think, "Haw Haw I'm being funny and ironic by trending on an artist that sounds he like he has down syndrome, plus most of them abandoned ship a while ago." I feel Kreayshawn is also getting that effect to much leser degrees, and I actually non ironically like some of Lil B's songs like I Am The Hood (raps over One Mic Beat) and T Shirt and Buddens (Joe Budden Diss), I also like Kreayshawn's hook on the first song of hers I posted.

    I haven't fully checked out Progressive Era aside from Joey Bada$$'s 1999 project but they sound promising so far.

    It's weird, conceptually this should be cheesy as fuck. A bunch of teenagers pretty much, squeezing beats out of guys past their prime like Lewis Parker, MF DOOM, and Lord Finesse, snatch up a spare Dilla track or two, and set out with their in-house producer to end up making some of the most convincing 90s NY sound I've heard in a while!!!







    It's kinda weird to enjoy when you realize how young they all are. And yea I know Illmatic, but still these are kids born in the 90s.
