New Hip Hop?Started 12 years ago by SpeakEasy / toggle topic info
Any of you guys really heard anything coming out that's good? I haven't heard anything really since Fun DMC. There's been stuff out there that's so so, a few good tracks or whatever, but nothing that has really got my attention, nothing to garner repeated listening for a long time.
I know DOOM's got a new cd out, I'll get that when I got money, but I've heard DOOM, i mean, I need something new. Someone brand new. And some fresher beats...that's another thing I've found lacking with newer releases.
Maybe I'm just not looking as hard as I used to cause of the frustration. Lemme know if you guys have any suggestions. PS a suggestion from me (though the CD came out in 08 i believe) is Median. Check his myspace he's real real nice.
I apologize in advance for the blatant pimping of my own sh!t, buuutttt...
I know at this point it's still amateur and sh!t, but we're still high schoolers. Regardless, any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Peace, and remember: "I can do anything I want with my innernet!!!"
p.s., the hoochies on the top friends are a joke...
Hey man, I dunno if you've heard any of these guys before, but I'm feeling all of them, and I've only just found them. Happy diggin... (by the way, the doom album is supremely dope)
Nujabes - Metaphorical Music
J-Live - And Then What Happened (most recent album)
Glue - Sunset Lodge EP
Exhile - Dirty Science
Elzhi - The Preface
Bumblebeez 81 - the printz (crazy ass british hip hop/dubstep)
Blockhead - Downtown Science & Music By Cavelight
Animal Collective - Feels (not hip hop, but awesome in its own right)
Xploding Plastix - Treated Tmbr Resists (weird ninja tune stuff)
Hexstatic - Masterview
These are just the new things I've discovered in the last couple of months, not to say they are actually new at all.
exile exile exile i definitely second the dirty science suggestion, also giant pandas 08 album Electric Laser, shawn jackson's solo debut First of All is dope too
I don't know why, but when it comes to Giant Panda, I was way more into "Fly School Reunion" than "Electric Laser".
But I second Nujabes if you're looking to chill. Metaphorical Music was good, so was Modal Soul.
Yeah Dirty Science is tight, I got that one on vinyl for decently cheap. Fly (Song of LIberation) feat. Blue is definately my favorite song on there.
I'll definately check out Nujabes, that's a group I've heard a lot about but never gotten around to listening. I always love some chill hip hop. Speaking of chill hip hop. any of you ever heard Grassroots/been able to get that album. Apparently it's almost impossible to get unless you're willing to pay like 50 bucks or something ridiculous.
Five Deez is my sh!t. Cool story is (I forget which members, but I believe one is Fat Jon) that they actually went to the same high school as I did here in Cincinnati.
Animal Collective is decent, what I'm really into as far as rock goes is the Black Keys. Those dudes kill it man I cannot find a bad song on any of their albums.
Nujabes is above and beyond. Although the album he produced for Pase Rock (from Five Deez) is maybe the illest.
The japanese are straight up killing the entire jazz/hip hop genre. Check out 'Olive Oil' ... madness.

They been around awhile, but Cunninlynguists have a new album out titled Strange Journey, Volume 1. They are dope as f***, and the producer is one of the very select few that can even attempt to rival Thes as far as finding dope cuts and turning them to gems.
You'd be surprised, the new Cam'ron is fire!
Got to give a shout to Starving Artist Crew (SAC) just picked up there 2004 album and its been on HEAVY rotation.....also just got my hands on Johnson and Jonson....a little west coast but the production is tight.
I've been bumping this guy Wax for a few weeks now, the album's proper sick, he's got dope wordplay too...
Here's his official music video The Adventures of Larry and Tina:
This is dope too:
His album Liquid Courage is well good, definitely worth a check
