Now playing some Hip-Hop

I did read this interesting article about SoundCloud Rap which made me feel incredibly old, from a different world and disturbed.

The profanity doesn’t bother me at all it’s the misogyny in the lyrics. But I’m not exposed to hip hop at all really, apart from geezas in shitty teeny cars with bolt on accessories and big sound systems :slight_smile:

Yeh when I say lyrics/language, it’s all of that… all under the same umbrella.

I don’t have time to go through all of classic rock (which I love too !) but I could go on for a while hehe.

My wife and I piss ourselves when Tom Jones She’s a Lady comes on. Whenever she goes out for an evening we quote…

I can leave her on her own
Knowin’ she’s okay alone and there’s no messin’

Genius :grin:

Classic. Big Boi’s solo discog is nice too.

I don’t pay attention to lyrics normally but mentions of speakers always gets my attention :grin:

Got very excited when I found this old school track on Tidal, this was my number one played track of the day. The A side is great as well. Awesome beat, scratching is amazing and the rap just tops it all off.

Absolute classic.

The art of scratching has disappeared in mainstream HipHop. I still see some DJ’s doing it though, keeping the art alive.

Just got this recommendation, and I like it very much, so here you go:

Time for me to enter this thread as well. First hip hop record purchase was 40 years ago, Rappers delight" - The Sugarhill Gang. Fast forward, my favourite rapper currently, J Hus from :uk::

I’m still a fan of scratching and have always loved watching a great DJ work the turntables.

Featuring 3 of the greatest MC’s to ever rock the mic.

Genius… who doesn’t love cake.

Fiddy’s softer side.

Me and Mrs.Jones, we got a thing going on!

(Jan) #177

Jurassic 5. Old school production and scratching. J 5 has always been a favourite of mine.

(Jan) #178

Pete Rock, Jungle Brothers and Digital Underground concerts in March/April. See all three or just Jungle Brothers :smile:

(Sean) #179

All 3! Never know if they’ll tour again.
