Old School or New?Started 15 years ago by El Bastardo / toggle topic info
Whats you preference?
I remember reading an interview with Kool Keith in which he believed that hip hop music should constantly be looking towards the future and continuing to advance whereas PUTS believe that best stuff was always the old stuff and then you have people like Edan mixing both in.
Whats your view?
In my opinion both are good, although you have great records like deltron 3030 and I Phantom and Take Me To Your Leader, you can't beat the greats of 1987-88
to me PUTS are the most forward looking group around, but i might be biased ! Hip-Hop does push forward on it's own really, depends what you mean by forward i guess, but a good beats a good beat and a high loops a high loop whatever year ya in
for me... its not that clear cut - i like good beats and breaks - if theres quality lyrics with it - well thats all good - but at the same time the lyrics can be amazing on there own -- look at organized konfusion's "stray bullets" for lyrics that tottally blow my mind (PUTS pull it off with both for me with stuff like acid rain etc) i like the RJD2 stuff - but id say that has its feet firmly in oldschool holding the newschool round the throat - Robswift, jaylibb,DangerDoom, DJ format and ATD all make an apearance on my iTunes on a daily basis as well, along with Firstrate and Qbert - all of which seems to transend the difrent styles...
in short i cant define weather i like new or old - im just looking for a beat i can get with and vocals that mean something - though the vocals dont always have to be there.
if i dont make sense im sorry - im 3 quaters of the way through a 15 hour shift and the coffee machine broke down at hour 2
the "oldschool" and "newschool" terms are worthless IMO. theres music out there that sounds like 80's newwave funk like Chromeo, and ppl say theyre progressive.

Word to that !!
Good Hip-Hop & Rap Speaks for itself and doesn't need a box to put itself in.
music should aim to be timeless...im my humble opinion!
There's crappy old school stuff (Duran Duran) and there's crappy new-school (50 Cent), you can't really answer a question like that man.
