I know I'll catch hell for posting this here, but oh well fuck it. I've always liked A Tribe Called Quest and Black Eyed Peas, and lately that punk $.50 has been growing on me. Can anyone recommend any "underground" rap music? While I like SOME of what I've heard on the radio, alot of it is crap, and I'm not really into the whole Puffy/Fresh Prince thing.

OutKast, Timbaland & Magoo, Clipse, Ludacris, Missy, and you'll never be dissapointed with 2Pac or Notorious BIG.........and you're right 50 Cent is definately worth listening to.

50 cent is a piece of shit, as are pretty much all other "rap artists". Just my opinion. You can single-handedly thank these bastards, gangs and MTV for the hatred of guns in todays world.

I only like violent black power rap. Check out Da Lynch Mobs "Guerillas In The Midst". It's good stuff.

Try some aesop rock, del the funky homosapien, digable planets, de la soul, binary star, heather b, tribe called quest is always good, people under the stairs. Kazaa should have em all. Try undergroundhiphop.com for samples from just about everything.

To me the word "rap" begins with a "C". But to each his own.

Nice thing about living in the country is you can shoot the radio when it comes on. [:D]

Most of the commercial raido crap like Puffy and Jay-Z sucks, but I love the good stuff from down south. Outkast, 8Ball and MJG, and especially my KY boys Nappy Roots.

Nappy Roots.

If you want underground stuff look up the names Cage, Necro, Smut Peddlers and Mr Eon. As for old school just stick with Slick Rick and you'll be alright.

Have you seen "Fear of a Black Hat"? DVD coming out in a month, it's the rap version of "This is Spinal Tap". Pretty funny.

FUCK, NO! Rap is crap. It's worse than that. It's the worst excuse for making money without having anything of value to contribute in all of history, right after basketball, football, and baseball. CURLING is a more socially useful and relevant activity than rap! I listen to MUSIC. That leaves rap OUT. I'll listen to everything from heavy metal (death, speed, hardcore, speedcore, classic) to classical to jazz. But no rap, no way! CJ
Link Posted: 6/1/2003 12:25:34 PM EDT
Alright, Maybe I should have been more clear. I did say I like Tribe & Black Eyed Peas. I downloaded some of this Necro guy. I honestly could do without some guy with songs called "All Hotties Eat the Jizz". While it is mildly amusing, I was actually looking for some musical talent and/or inovation. Some dipshit trying to shock people gets pretty boring pretty quickly (anybody remember Marilyn Manson?)

i like some stuff. i think eminem's stuff is pretty good. i have been kinda hooked on the fifty cent cd recently. it took a couple listens but its growing on me. look... he even has good finger discipline. [:)] [img]http://photos.ar15.com/ImageGallery/IG_LoadImage.asp?iImageUnq=12989[/img]

Don't hate what you don't know. You sound just like the old folks in the 1950's saying rock 'n roll wasn't music. I assure you there is more musicianship in one Outkast or Nappy Roots song than most death metal or speedcore, and I used to be a headbanger back in the day. 3 chords played on a guitar tuned so low it sounds like elepant farts and some guy atonally bellowing "SHITFUCKBITCHCOCKSLUT" does not a song make.

Ohh man "fear of a black hat" is one of the funniest ghetto movies I've ever seen. That's one DVD I'll get. Lately all I've been able to do is catch it on HBO every once in a while.

Hell yeah! Search for Neighborhood Sniper and Nobody Move. Some DMX is ok too, but I don't know if it's what you're looking for.

Don't worry Tom, I'm not trading my tattoos, Harley and Doc Martens for a sideways baseball cap, lowered civic and air jordans. BTW, the great thing about Kazaa is that I get to appreciate the music of people I would never want to give a dime to.

so here it is. I listen to metal, but I do enjoy the occasional underground hip hop artist. My recommendations. Aesop Rock - Daylight Atmosphere - The Woman With The Tattooed Hands if you can find those two mp3s I guarantee you'll like them. It's not gangster rap or any of that crap and very listenable

I know what rap is. I've heard enough to be quite certain. It's shit. Nothing else. Pure shit, and that's all. Nothing I'd want to take home or have to listen to. Nobody here will live long enough for me to start liking rap. Not even your great-grandchildren will live long enough to see me start liking rap. I't simply impossible. The sun will burn out and fall to a mean surface temperature of absolute zero before I start to like rap. And that won't EVER happen while the universe exists. That shit disgusts me to the very core of my being. It's objectionable to me on so many different levels that even I don't understand exactly why I hate it so. I realize that there are degrees of rap/hip hop, and there is probably a point at which I don't object to a little bit of it in other music, but don't make the mistake of thinking I would ENJOY that. I'd just tolerate it as a non-enjoyable part of the music and try to ignore it as I would a tambourine in a recording. (Another useless musical invention if ever there was one...) There is something fundamentally wrong with our society when people with literally no MUSICAL talent at all can make a lot of money in the musical industry as a performer. Rhyming to a beat is not music. Not ever. CJ
