This is Hip-Hop.

I used to love this track. Ice T sounding like everybody on the East Coast in 1986.

He always used to make a point of mentioning he was born in New York back then, on every track, like it was some kind of pass you needed to make hip hop.

6 in the Morning is one of my favourite hip hop tracks ever though.

Drake has made some amazing tracks. It's a shame if you disregard him just because he is 'that guy' who so-called real hip-hop fans don't like. That's the worst thing about hip hop - all this nonsense from certain quarters about what's "REAL" or not. Oh well...

Anyway, RiFF RaFF is seriously doing it at the moment. Love his craziness and humour. He's made some crazy bangers these past few years.

:omg:

Absolutely fucking amazing video for this track, and it's one for all the internet heads:

:wub:

Caught this trending worldwide on Twitter in the week and immediately watched it.

It is truly brilliant, but in hindsight I probably should have waited until I got home from work before checking it out.

Post some of the so called amazing tracks on here then, as I have actually bothered to listen his second album and apart from a bit of nice production here and there, it was utter shite.

Definitely feeling sorry for dudes who are incapable of enjoying Danny Brown. Probably the best out of this current wave of interesting, talented new wave of MCs.

First heard him on Jay Stay Paid and thought he was quality, but since then I haven't heard something I've particularly likes from him.

Barny, I am sorry I cant listen to Lil Wayne, it feels like I am having my ears stabbed with a rusty screwdriver when ever I have the misfortune to hear his voice.

Man, you miseed out on two of the best mixtapes that ever were mixed and taped.

(Bah, I tried to get it to start at 45 seconds but apparently it didn't work).

Nas made a great album. Best album from him in a long time :)

Just listened to this. It is good, some quality tracks on it, but it's a little over bloated for me to say its great. Why don't enough hiphop emcees make a nice, concise 12 track album these days instead of an album with 12 great tracks and another 9, so do ones?! :(

I don't think that's limited to recent stuff, I can remember moaning about the bloat of most hip-hop albums since forever. 'Less is more' isn't a concept that the culture in general seems to subscribe to.

6 In The Morning is a bona fide classic. Yeah, being East Coast was like some sort of badge back in the day. We even used to mimic them over here, voices and all :facepalm: Also, The 7A3 continued the tradition of East Coast MCs living on the West Coast. Remember them?

EDIT: DJ Muggs on DJ duties and produced by the Shocklee brothers no less.

More classic LL ...

Didn't realise the Shocklee bros produced The 7A3. Always thought it was Muggs.

They only produced that one track I think. Pretty sure the rest was produced by Daddy-O?

EDIT: yes, the rest of the album was done by Joe "The Butcher" and Daddy-O - http://geniusrap.com...in-in-cali.html

EDIT2: Ah, Sadler was involved too. So the whole Bomb Squad on that track then.
