    Contribute, then. Complaining about the hot topic (if you must) isn't going to get you anywhere. Bring up somebody else.

    E: Hammerheart said the same thing. Whoops

    Ironically the subsequent replies back and forth probably do more to keep new visitors away then any mention of guys like Jay-Z (It's a hip hop thread on a pokemon forum, what do you expect?)

    I just got Rip The Jacker if anyone here has ever heard of Canibus. Honestly I think he's pretty overrated.

    Ironically, when I actually stated my interest in a couple of hip-hop artists no-one actually responded.

    I didn't reply because they aren't artists I have much experience with. A friend stuck In The Ghetto from one of the Eric B & Rakim albums on a mix tape he made me, but beside that I've not much experience with either.

    Which is fine. Sorry, didn't mean to seem like I was having a go at you.
    I simply felt Rezzo and Laser Shuckle's comments, at this point, were kinda irrelevant.

    Can I suggest changing the name of the thread? Is that within anyone's power? All of the stuff after the hyphen is kinda... well, it's unnecessary and borders uncomfortably on racism in my eyes. Might be off-putting for some.

    No worries. Sorry if I came across a bit dickish on the last page. I just get a bit pedantic at times and enjoy a good argument

    Earl's new album dropped yesterday. I was there to download it at 12, nice and early. Anybody else enjoy it? I did feel it was REALLY short. Overall I'd give it an A-. Album had great flow and every song was unique and stood out in its own way.

    I think it would be a good time to ask if anyone has heard Kendrick Lamar's verse on 'Control'.

    I don't know, it doesn't seem like he's dissing any of the rappers, but more like just 'calling them out'. Personally, I loved his verse though. What do you guys think?

    I think people are slightly overreacting. Yes, he did basically call out every big name in rap in a single verse. But, I think he is really trying to say: "Step up your game, or bow to the new king."

    this is the whitest thing i have ever read in this thread. it sounds like my high school counselor trying to defend rap music omg. i love it.

    i really did enjoy it tho ia! honestly, i think rap isn't a genre that should be about sales because sales have never affected quality. very often rappers hit it big and then just can't produce high quality real stuff unless they move to flossing what they got and nothing else even though plenty of these people were well off before hand. i mean, jay-z and eminem might be shipping hella copies, but they're shells of their former selves. Ice-T. Nicki Minaj (lol), Lil, Wayne etc. people get way too protective over their kings but this isn't effing pop music. rap is a form of poetry more so than other music. it relies on a beat (something that is common in poetry) and spoken word. no guitars, no banjos, no synthesizers, nothin like that. just because robert frost wrote a popular poem doesn't mean it was actually better than something else.

    Is it too early to say that Old is the album of the year? Because it's streaming on Spotify and it's really good.

    Wow, came into here thinking no one would be talking about Old. I'm just listening to it now. I love the different sides of the items, lyrical v. party music. Danny Brown has a few different tones/personalities, but I honestly think those few different tones are very extreme which can make his music kind of repetitive at times. Some of his flows are hard to decipher as well.

    But of course, it's hard not to like him with such over-the-top enthusiasm. Definitely an album that can reach the top of this year.

    derp.

    It's good to hear that people have been saying good things about Old by Danny Brown. I've never heard of Danny Brown outside his verse on 1train so hopefully this'll be as good as any entry point to get into the guy
    Never try and argue with idiots, they'll only drag you down to their level and beat you with experience

    Do yourselves a favor and get THIS instead. You can also find it for a little more on Itunes. The last two tracks with KRS-One and Crooklyn Dodgers/Pharoah Monch are worth the price of the album alone, no joke. I originally only wanted one song off it but I'm glad I got the whole thing. I can't recommend it enough...

    Never heard of Crooklyn Dodgers before. But I do listen to Pharoah and KRS-One, really loving their flow.
