Like times a thousand. Drakes new singles killed it lol, and Kanye's album is going to be illy.


I wont smoke it if the name ain't right

My haze is looking like its been in a color fight.

Guess we are smoking on Picasso, light it up, ignite the spark.

Man it feels good to be smoking on fine arts.

I personally loved Distant Relatives and the positive message it gets across. As for Eminem's new album if its as good as Not Afraid was its possible he could have his first classic. In an unrelated note Gucci got out today, I'm not a big fan of his music but his features are typically good.

I'm not a huge army of pharaohs fan but lyrically there good. Reflection Eternal is back I would definitely cop the album may 18, Talib Kweli never disapoints.

Meh, I hate new Jedi Mind, saw him live and he just sounds like utter crap ever since he got shot in the mouth. And AoTP is alright imo. Looking forward to new QN5, RhymeSayers, and Doom Tree material.

I have a real thing for good hip-hop in foreign languages because I feel a lot of them flow better than English.

I agree, I wish I knew Polish or something though, Polish hip hop sounds amazing.

Poland and Finland have my two favourite European hip-hop scenes. Some of it is really cheesy, but it's all good. UK hip-hop really fell down when grime became popular. It was never anything incredible, but grime killed the entire scene. Japan has a lot of good stuff but the best stuff is instrumental if that doesn't bother you at all.

 

[bleep] yeah Nomak. You like michita?

 

I've yet to give Michita a listen. Silly of me because I like other stuff such as Shin-Ski and Shing02 as well as Nomak and Nujabes. I'll check it out later.

Ah nice. I think you'll like Eternal Morning as well if you dig those artists. Eternal Morning is with Tablo of Epik High. What's your favorite Shing02 album? I'm surprised people actually take an interest in Japanese hiphop. Well lol aside from that anime sig you have.

Top 10 Rappers In my opinion, Followed by my favorite songs of theirs.

 

1.B.O.B-The Kids, Dont let me fall, Haterz everywhere, airplanes 1 & 2, Past my shades, Ill be in the Sky

2.Drake-The winner, Over, Forever, DO What you do

3.Kid Cudi-Soundtrack to my Life, Pursuit of Happiness, Alive, Up Up and Away

4.Eminem-Not Afraid, Lose Yourself, Forever, Cleaning out my Closet.

5.Lil wayne-10,000 bars, Georgia Bush, Im Me, Watch My Shoes

6.Kanye West-I dont Care, Family Business, Heartless

7.Nas-Hero, America, Black President

8.Asher Roth (Don't hate; appreciate)- Lark on my Go-Kart, I love College, A Milli Remix

9.Sam Adams-coast 2 coast, coming up, im so high

10.Jay-Z-Big Pimpin, Hard Knock Life, Dirt of your SHoulder, and his whole collaboration with Linkin Park.

 

Hooray

~Fly

I like that list.

 

Mine would go:

 

1. B.o.B - I think he is gonna be huge. I got his album the day it came out and it blew my mind.

2. Jay-Z - Has been so good for a long time now and continues to be great.

3. Kid Cudi - So deep in his lyrics and I think is underrated. His debut album was incredible, the best of 2009 in my opinion.

4. Drake- I am looking forward to more of Drake. He has already made it huge and is very early into his career. I think he has a great career ahead of him.

5. Kanye West - While I hate him as a person I can't help but enjoy his music

6. Eminem - Relapse was not his best work but I think he is back on his game.

7. Lil Wayne - Looking forward to the Carter IV although it may be a bit delayed now.

 

Yeah I only have seven and I realize that most, if not all of those are mainstream. I need to work on expanding my knowledge on some lesser known rappers.

What's your favorite Shing02 album?

 

I havent really listened to any album specifically but Shing02 is amazing. His Japanese stuff flows sooooo well.

[hide=Lyrics]400

 

400! letters simmered in the self to let the words sink in

400! split in twain the 800 lies of society

400! letters simmered in the self and let the words sink in

400! word of mouth over beats nullify mass media

 

the lead point brush, sitting under a tree

the sunshine exposes feelings cast away

work my way through crowded emotions to reach the innermost core

the world we have created today, surrounded by fear of catastrophe

feeling totally helpless unable to find the purpose, living in vain

so I meditate on the true definition of work:

a cause to devote your body and soul, plus the reality of paying bills

the right tools, time, and environment are not enough to realize a vision

broken dreams, forced labor, everything is for a meal

money infesting every mind, savings bound to get jacked

so some wanna quit being human? how silly,

blood, flesh, and bones don't perish that easy

time to wake up the inner spirit, recall the childhood dream right here

 

goals only the youth can achieve, but the system dictates to respect authority

end up killing curious minds and potential

pledge allegiance to the new flag proposing fresh values

store the energy to revolt, singlehandedly directing brothers and rogues

the other hand grabbing the tail of the beast behind the curtain

dumb adults running the show today better watch their backs tomorrow

a word for the kids too, until you're independent you're always a kid.

but if you can finish a full meal you're already a role model to some.

until you can feed two mouths you can't even support a woman.

when you're responsible for the third you're the sole chief of a family tribe.

so know your path while you're single, prepare for decision

cover the necessities, raise your hands if you do your own dishes and laundry!

 

old men who can't even handle computers calling the shots

no clue how to handle the youth, they're scared to tell you the truth

but they ignore the sore spot, no plans to act but pretend to be down

is that all you can offer? that's why the real communication lies

between the same generation across different generations, not vice versa

recognize the critical issues and minds before the deadline

there's no fancy theme or glory to what's happening next

just kids in this nation putting thier lives on the line

best believe one soul can make a difference in a hunderd others

cut the bs, the rebel strikes back, armed with art[/hide]

400 is my favourite Shing02 album; loved it instantly the moment I heard it as well. I listened to Michita's "Three" yesterday and it's some really good stuff as well. I don't know; I think hip-hop is something Japan does particularly well along with indie rock and ambient.

 

Also, I like how we're all talking about completely different sorts of hip-hop in here.

Yeah, it's pretty awesome. More R&B than I thought but I like that. Good first album for me, although you can't really call it a debut....8.5/10?

Yeah it's more RnB, but it's really chilled which is something uncommon to my library, not due to the fact I don't like it but because it's rarer for the artists I have. Can't decide whether I prefer this or B.o.B's album, buzzing for Kanye's though. His first single from his upcoming album 'Good Ass Job' is out, it's called Power featuring Dwele.

drake is kinda hit or miss for me, some of his songs are cool and chill and the others are just lame. idk i just think he tries to hard for a rhyme. on "bedrock" he used ricky bobby for a rhyme and i just thought that was hilarious and visine in another one. there's nothing wrong with using cultural references but they should at least be relevant and not used just to make a rhyme.

 

has anyone seen kid cudi's pursuit of happiness music vid megaforce version? it was amazing :thumbsup:

They were decent considering they were off a mixtape (http://www.datpiff.com/Dj_Drama_TI__[bleep]_A_Mixtape.m123255.html)

 

I'm excited for the album. The snippet for Kanye' next single sounds nice, I think we can expect a very good album frome Ye

Ah nice, 400 is definitely a favorite next to MC no Susume. So what exactly got you guys into Japanese music? Exposure to Anime or something?

 

But yeah man over in Shibuya hiphop is huge, they do it well.
