But then many will argue hes shit on album ASWELL as on stage! All I know is he's fucking awful up there doing his thing!0
Each to their own.........but your wrong! Not saying he was the greatest just that he died far to early for such a talented bloke. Just like Biggie.0
Have to also say that the album Blade did with Mark B is one of my favourites - The Unknown. Shame they had to give that twat Westwood a few minutes on one of the tracks.
Never mind. Also have to back up everyone whos liking Phi Life Cypher but has anyone got there new-ish album Higher Forces??? Is it any good?0

Sounds like a very good selection to me. Are we all gonna manage to hear this mixtape somehow???0
Right I thought i'd give it another go although i was pretty impressed with my first go.Anyhow here goes.......
1. Aspects - Droppin Drums. dark troubled track from new Mystery Theatre album.
2. Braintax - Birofunk. title track with funky beats. Sets the tone.
3. MF Doom - Who Do You Think You Are? - Track from classic Operation Doomsday album. Features the masses of Monsta Island Czars. Quality.
4. Outkast - Ghetto Musik. track from weaker side (Speakerboxx) of Outkast album. Funky,high tempo and generally alright
5. Stone Roses - Fools Gold. Classic. Nuff said!
6. Jay-Z & Dangermouse - Moment Of Clarity. One of the best on the infamous Grey Album. Jay-Zs lyrics, The Beatles beats!!
7. DJ Shadow - Meets His Maker. From The Private Press. Deep, chilled typically Shadow with immense piano loop. Nice.
8. Kosheen - Cover. Middle of the road tune on Kosheen's Resist album. Nice and a bit soulful.
9. Air - All I Need. Doesn't everyone know this tune? Best siiting on a beach,beating sun,beer and great for a hangover too!!
10. Yoda Meets The Mr Men - skit - Scratching, film snippets all over the Mr Men theme tune! Odd!!!
Well that wasn't a bad selection. Nice bit of hiphop mixed with some chilled beats and classic dance. All from 1130 tracks. Best mix my mp3 has come up with today.0
To whoever mentioned the Skinnyman LP, when is it out do you know? Ive been loving his work for a while and will surely lap up a full legnth record
I do believe its sometime next month.(July)
Its called Council House State OF Mind or something like that!0
That MC Jibbarish is tight too, liked his flow a lot.
Can't beat a bit of Ronnnnnn Compost too!
Anyone know if he's done anything else?0
Fair enough, but, and I don't know why, I just get a hard on for raw sounding UK stuff...
try getting one for Raw Looking UK women instead!0
I think you should stop now.
Sounds like a damn good idea!!!
Too be fair I actually like The Streets (haven't got the new album though) but they certainly ain't hiphop. Also its one bloke not a fucking band!0
It didn't make me laugh...at all.
Perhaps you just don't have a sense of humour?!
Its weird but I found it highly amusing but its not my type of humour at all!
The Essex Boys track seems to sum the place up very well. White escorts/Novas and stilettos everywhere!!0
I've recently got quite big into Uk hiphop (the last year) and a mate of mine has introduced me to some quality shit.
Particular faves are probably Braintax, Ironbridge, Blade and Aspects.
Currently listening to Aspects - Mystery theatre which is top quality bristol hip hop. their second album which definately looks to take them onto big things. Other recommendations has to be Ironbridge's debut LP - Toilet Humour. Its tunred into one of my favourite albums over the past year for genuinely funny lyrics and quality use of interesting beats.
Looking forward to the finally released Skinnyman LP aswell. Saw him in Bristol a few weeks ago and he was quality. Especially when he gave a complete and utter twat in a crowd a kicking after the gig!0
Ok heres mine:-
1. Naughty By Nature - Hip Hop Hooray. Classic 90s party tune.
2. De La Soul - Till The Fat Lady Plays The Demo. funny as skit from De La Soul Is Dead Album.
3. DJ Shadow - The Number Song - Only put on this week, haven't heard as yet!
4. Pigeon John - Emily - Hilarious track from the hip hop weirdo.
5. Ju Ju from Beatnuts - Punch You In The Face. What can i say the title says it all!
6. Dido - Who Makes You Feel. Chilled out track from the lovely Dido.
7. Bernard Herrman - Twisted Nerve. that weird whistle song from KillBill vol.1
8. 808 State - Cobra Bora. Top dance track from back in the day.
9. Braintax - Peace - Lovely summer tune from one of the best producers in the UK.
10. Method Man - The Motto. Again a new track for me. Sounding good though.
Those 10 out of a possible 1140. Perhaps i listen to too much hiphop?!!0
Is this worth getting?? I remember someone talking about it a while back on this forum but can't remember what they said about it and what it was like. Just remember them saying its good!
Any help appreicated.
Oh and Cal I'm just checking the Les Fleurs track by Minnie Ripperton, you can't fault it!0
I'm listening to my MP3 player which is currently playing RJD2- Ghostwriter-excellent and just before that was Eminem - Kids. Quality bonus track on the end of The marshall Mathers LP. Funny as fuck with South Park samples.0
In case the madvillainy thread disappears I've put this in here for continuity.
Just found this
Does this man ever let up with his album releases??
that sounds absolutely superb and he truelly continues to push the boundaries.
Can't wait till August now although I'm still looking to get Special Herbs & Spices with Dooms beat's and Grimm's lyrics before then. Anyone got it?0
Still, was well worth it...RJD2 was the bomb...smooth, solid mixing, nice cuts & constantly interesting track selection made for a wicked gig.
I was there too and fully agree the bloke was awesome!
Fucking quality and mate you deserve the headache after boshing the stella back so freely!
I was driving0
Went to see him at Fiddlers last night in Bristol. Fucking awesome!
The bloke was on 4 decks, scratching,cutting,mixing running his arse off for nearly 2hours.!
Really really impressed and some of the tunes from Deadringer sound superb live. Definately have to pop out to buy the new one now.
Damn good night and i recommend you go see him if hes at a club near you!0
Without wanting to get into yet another argument (read: let's argue) J5 fuckin rock
I really don't think their sound is bland. It's energetic, it's fun, it's cool. Well head-nod inducing. UD are dull. That's true. They have 0 talent. J5's MCs at least have nice flows and get that old skool harmonising thing perfectly right. UD just seem "try-too-hard."
I don't see the faux-old skool acts, as you call them, as being a bad thing so long as they get it right. I think it's cool for a few bands to keep that old sound going. It'd be a shame if that kinda hip-hop died.
Agree with the J5 rocks call disagree with UD being dull!
They are anything but dull.
Anyway like you said in the hiphop thread (not long ago) dismissing certain acts for the sake of it seems a little stupid........soooooooo........... Fair enough you don't like Ugly Duckling but to say they have "0 talent" is not just harsh but a little short sighted. Theres hiphop out there that i ain't keen on but i TRY to keep an open mind......take Jay-Z for example.
Anyhow, not looking for an arguement just hate all these haters!!
Oh and if hiphop was all the same it wouldn't be hiphop would it?!0
If ya run into any road rage pop on 2Pac- Hit Em Up. Always works for me!0
You did say accessible tracks! I like 'Can I kick it?' myself, though there are many many Tribe tunes I'd pick over it of course (Scenario being one).
Im with ya on the Can I kick It? vibe although the extended boilerhouse mix is much much better than the original. To be fair though i can see why people won't like it.
The Tribe tune for me if ya want something different from Scenario would be Award Tour. Just can't get enough of that. Fucking ace!
On another note after reading the 3pages of this thread theres far too much hating going on for Jurassic 5. Just cause its what people like to call "accesible hiphop" it don't mean its not good!0
Just thought I'd say that i bought this (ebay 5quid!) after Calashnikov mentioned it last month , its quality.
A great album of scratching through the ages!
Also I've been listening to the back catalogue of Gang Starr tonight while i've been attempting to put my hiphop collection on my new 20Gb MP3. Fucking hard work in this heat I'll have ya know!!
Having not grown up as a hiphop boy I was given the albums to listen to recently for my "education" (from a fellow forumite) Really loving them especially Hard To Earn.
Just wished I had enough money to go see them next wednesday in Bristol.
Ahh well its RJD2 tomorrow night.0

LOL. You may know them but its definately something to be ashamed of! To be fair though I haven't disowned my mother for liking Westlife, but then she is 57!
