I had to change my location because of that new Bangs song. Friggin Cobbler.

YouTube - Common- Nothing to do

Resurrection is great and all, but this one song reminds me of early Outkast in the best of ways.

Holocaust/Warcloud has a few good tracks out there from back when he worked with wu members. Hes a freakin looney tune though so take it with a grain of salt.

Some hip-hop opinions:

AZ and R.A. The Rugged Man are the two most underrated rappers.

DJ Premier and Stoupe from Jedi Mind Tricks make the best beats.

Inspectah Deck is the best wu member.

Just to merge these two topics, AZ does a verse on Life's a Bitch and it's awesome.

I wonder if the word "purists" should be taken out of the thread title. I'm certainly not a hip hop purist, but it is nice to have a thread where we can discuss hip hop. I guess it doesn't really matter.

He's up there for sure. I've said it a few times before, but his opening verse on Protect Ya Neck is my favorite rap verse ever. I might have to go with Meth for my favorite member, though, just based on pure personality.

In spite of the fact that my year end list is like 80% asshole, obscure shit, I feel the need to point out that Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty came in at number one. Jesus, that record!

Another Southern hip-hop album that a lot of people are sleeping on this year is Big K.R.I.T.'s freely-released, self-produced K.R.I.T. Wuz Here. If you're digging Left Foot (as you should be), check this one out too.

Big K.R.I.T. – K.R.I.T. Wuz Here (Album) | 2dopeboyz

YouTube - Country Shit - BIG KRIT

YouTube - 08 - They Got US

Yeah, I have still yet to hear that. Have to admit that I followed very, very little hip-hop, this year. Apart from Dipset, of course.

I kind of agree with GAF about the title, I mean when I see that title all I can think of is people who only like 80's hip-hop and refuse to acknowledge modern mainstream rap or alternative movements... which is not what this thread is about.


Also, "Shutterbugg" has been randomly stuck in my head recently and it's been awhile since I listened to any Big Boi.

While I agree the thread's morphed into a general hip-hop discussion, a quick look back at the first several posts shows that wasn't the original intent. It was to discuss "non-mainstream" (and I realize that's not a terribly useful term, considering plenty of mainstream guys are on the below list) hip-hop.

Oh I'm not arguing the intent of the thread, just what the title makes me think, y'know?
