Rap/hip hop music fan thread

Recommended Posts

From what I previously thought, the Doom demographic is seemingly stereotyped as badass mofos who listen to hardcore rock music, derivative from the original game's soundtrack and creator's origins.

However scanning through threads relative to music I see many people posting links of their favorite music, an I have to say I am really impressed with all you guy's tastes. Whether it's indie or punk there is always something good I can find and listen to. And seeing rap music, my favorite genre, showing up as well-it really makes me happy that there are people in an online community sharing things that are almost a part of my own life.

Here is where we can discuss,argue, and share rap music that are our favs. Simply paste a link from youtube or soundcloud into the thread or explain about which ones you listen to the most. I feel like this would be an interesting thread.

Every now and then a rap/hip hop song really clicks with me on a deep level. A few examples are "The Message", "The End of Days" and "Dance With the Devil". Powerful stuff. There's definitely more but those immediately come to mind.

Mf Doom is pretty damn talented. I get a wee bit bored of his style at times though personally. @rehelekretep, thats not technically rap, but is hiphop (in one of the veins) You should check out Block Head if you haven't already. and for anyone whom likes Mf Doom they should check out Aesop Rock.

I've listened to it already at least 3 times and it's definitely a classic. All caps, meat grinder and strange ways imo are the best songs, though it's kind of difficult to find highlights from an album where every song is flawless

Run the jewels 3 out when

Also blonde aoty


Run the Jewels 3 hasn't had a release date yet, however they have released a single on the adult swim's official website.

I haven't listened to blonde yet but I have listened to Frank Ocean's previous work, and I was never really fond of him. Aoty imo in terms of rap would be either Imperial by Denzel Curry or Atrocity Exhibition by Danny Brown.

I don't listen to a lot of hip hop, so there aren't really any particular groups or artists I'm a fan of. But there are a few individual songs that I love.






Plus some others.

Glad someone else here also mentioned Dance with the Devil, that is one of the heaviest songs I've ever heard. The lyrics are fucking heartbreaking.

It's all about that o.g Wu Tang. Something about old school east side hip-hop is so comforting to me for some reason.

Ya, that and biggie. I'm also fond of a lot of detroit rappers as well. I'm a huge Eminem Fan.

I'vr always found a lot of this genre to be annoyingly superficial (Though really, it was more so that my High School friends had really bad taste and thus listened to the shittiest examples), but it's a great medium for story telling. As Doomkid mentioned, Immortal Technique's Dance With the Devil is a prime example of a beat and a story.

Though yah, I like shallow stuff too once in a while.



Should'a posted it fool.

Mainstream rap for the most part is total shit. The 90's was the golden age for hip hop, though there is plenty of underground, alternative artists still managing to keep it alive.

Mainstream anything is mostly shit. The good news about hip hop is the reign of crunk is over, and trap music must share space on the stage with conscious rap. Both are getting equal attention, and the inanity of trap musicians is very much in the spotlight (see the "confused rap genius" meme.)
