ITT: God-tier rappers. Post a few songs that demonstrate their rapping ability particularly well.
Look up some more stuff, not joking. He's in the Canadian hip hop group Psych Ward
>Tie My Hands
Eminem is my all time favorite.
Alexander Spit is absolutely amazing.
I'm going to get hate for saying this, but Yelawolf is so underrated. He's amazing. His flow and skill is great and he knows how to freestyle really well. His speed is outrageous.
>Hell on Earth
>Survival of the Fittest
>Up North Trip
>Numbers on the Board
>Clipse - We Got It 4 Cheap
Yes, he's knew. But this kid had the potential to be a legend if only he didn't commit suicide at such a young age. So talented, lyrics with such meaning, sucks he had to go.
>Free the Robots
I ignored Yelawolf after I heard that Lamborghini song of his. Didn't like it at the time, but sampled it again just now and it wasn't bad. I can see why Eminem signed him.
Yela's songs, at first, take a little bit getting used to. But once you actually listen to them, they're great. And Daddy's Lambo is n amazing song. Plus, you have to freestyle battle Eminem to get into Shady Records, so it shows you have to have skill.
2pac is a more acceptable answer.
or The notorious B.I.G.
Or just NWA as a whole
He did a LOT of drugs, so that probably got him depressed a lot. There was a lot of pressure in his life, from his crew, with his living situation, etc. The pressure of losing his virginity, of being a major player in his crew, and he always felt like someone was out to get him. He really thought the illuminati thing was huge, and he was obsessed with the number 47
Ill mind of Hopsin 5
Ill mind of Hopsin 7
Whats my purpose
Yo this guy Nine is the shit
Hes pretty obscure and not many people have heard of him, and hes sorta faded into obscurity. but this album is one of my favorite of all time.
Hopsin sucks. I know he may be better than Tyler the Creator, but the way things worked out, he will always live in Tyler's shadow. He looked like such an eager child when he dissed Tyler.
i love cole and krit so goddam much
>New Faces V2
Tyler The Creator
>Keisha's song (gives me chills)
>Sing About me, I'm dying of thirst
>obvious as to why
>another obvious one
Mac miller as of late
>New Faces V2
I know a ton more if you guys are actually listening to any of these. If not I recommend you listen to these songs.
Also for some really nice underground shit:
Binary star - Reality check
Typical cats - snake oil
Andre Nickatina: Not the greatest rapper ever or anything like that, but he is talented. One of the best from the bay area.
-I'm a Pisces
-Dice of Life
-Blood in my Hair
-Train with no Love
Wait, are you referring to Tyler? I don't think he's really all about bling. He's moved on from the kill cops thing. And he doesn't doesn't ever seriously rap about substances and alcohol in a serious manner, he's always joking, because he's straightedge
You mention Tyler the Creator, but didn't mention Rusty. That is easily one of his best tracks ever and you didn't mention it.
GZA- 4th Chamber, Liquid Swords
Method Man- Uh huh, gotta have it
NAS- NY state of mind, one mic
Tribe Called Quest (everyone is good)- Art Tour
Yung Lean- Kyoto Ginseng Strip
Gang Starr- Above the Clouds, Just to get a rep
Hands down the best rapper I've ever listened to
>Color My World Mine
>By the Throat
>Perfect Medicine (my personal fav)
WHOOP WHOOP MOTHER FUCKERS!!!! Psychopathic records all the way.
>universally accepted as god tier or even some of the greatest of all time
>rap music plebs
You dont make much sense man.... go on over to /mu/ i see a couple threads about hiphop right now
wah wah wah i'm too much of a stupid fucking faggot to comprehend other genres
Rap: dumb niggers talking to a beat about dumb nigger shit
seriously why does noone ever post any Bone Thugs N Harmony you buncha underage faggots is probably why, this board is fucking shit and Bizzy Bone schools these fags especially the obvious troll op eminem is marketed and designed for teenage girls if you like him you are a girl or a faggot
Used to get high as fuck on trazodone and listen to
>I live 4 the funk
>bonus:featured on the song Police OG mix
>Da Art of Storytellin (Parts 1 & 2)
5 Am In Toronto
Up All Night
Earl sweatshirt he hasn't made much music recently but he still is the shit.
And that unrealesed song
> worldwide choppers
> live like I'm dyin'
> bout ta bubble
personally he's my favorite of all time
Twiztid is actually pretty decent. I think they would have went farther if they didn't get caught up in the shit Juggalo stuff.
this is some good shit my BC bud refered me to great guy and great music (great shows feat)
Naw man ICP used to be good too but they got lame pretty quick when you realise they hit a hard writers block
They're like the kid Cudi of their time.
They experimented with their music, unlike Cudi their experimental rap became a hit. Cudis is failing miserably. I agree, BTnH is good, but you can't sit there and say they're your favorite of all time. Let's be honest.
>Disses ICP and Esham
>Sucks Hopsin's cock
i know his rapping isn't good that's not why people like him. People only listen for the production of the songs.
Not enough Aesop Rock
Here, have fun.
>It's Okay to Eat Whale
>Jig is Up
>Control (his verse)
>Earth (The Oldest Computer)
>Zealots of Stockholm
>Life, The Biggest Troll
Chance The Rapper
Tyler, The Creator
>What They Want
>goes without saying
inb4 longpost faggot
>Cup of Tea
Haven't checked out his latest album Copper Gone, but I've heard it's his best yet.
nobody fuckin with lil ugly mane?
i for one like I Am. why does everyone hate that album?
Once you get past the initial shock he gets really deep into some shit
I can't remember the name of the song because I've ventured on but heres a song where he talks about his grandma dying and it gets to me
Nobody in OF is similar at all, its weird because Jasper and Taco take away some of the seriousness that the rest of the group gets into
>that icejjfish collab was gold tho
I like Hopsin but Ill Mind 7 was way tooo damn preachy and whiny. It reminded me of a tween going through his first existential crisis. Replace Ill Mind 7 with
Nocturnal Rainbows and we good.
I did post his good shit. I've listened to his entire discography and I think these 2 songs best demonstrate his ridiculous flowing abilities.
Weird Al Yankovic
White and Nerdy
Sir Isaac Newton vs Bill Nye
Everyone marches to the beat of their own drum, what can I say?
MMLP2 was pretty good actually.
>implying Hopsin isn't fucking shit
Chamillionaire (has he done anything recently?)
>Think I'm Crazy
>Gucci & Fendi
>Swagger Like Us freestyle
It has some pretty shitty lyrics, though
>Uh, summa-lumma, dooma-lumma, you assuming I'm a human. What I gotta do to get it through to you? I'm superhuman
>And I just bought a new raygun from the future just to come and shoot ya, like when Fabolous made Ray J mad, cause Fab said he looked like a fag at Mayweather's pad singing to a man while they played piano. Man, oh man, that was a 24/7 special on the cable channel. So Ray J went straight to the radio station, the very next day, "Hey Fab, I'ma kill you!"
>They said I rap like a robot, so call me rap-bot
>Fuck With A ShoeGang Nigga
>The Ghost Of Pac
>Put Some Shoes On
Pretty underated group who make alot of music and get no recognition
>implying eminem isnt god tier
3rd is such a simple beat but he kills it
Sorry dude, but when it comes to opinion (especially something as trivial as music) there is no right or wrong. No need to get your panties in a knot.
You shouldn't discount the song based on its merits. I don't know why you would anyways. If you knew anything about flow and lyrical genius then you would have an appreciation for Lose Yourself. Give it a good listen and tell me with honesty that it isn't some of the most lyrically complex song-writing you have ever heard. Go on Google and search up the work that some people have done to analyze the song. You don't even have to do that; I've done it for you:
Watch the whole video then listen to the song. If you still think the song is shit then fuck me silly.
They were pioneers of white boy rap that didn't suck. They were the anti-vanilla ice.
Also, I dig their style. I figure they're kinda poking fun at themselves, but in a very stylistic and groovy fashion.
Ra.the rugged man
Black and white
Chino Xl(gave eminem his style)
MF Doom (and all of his other aliases
>Mm.. Food (whole album)
>Madvillain (whole album
>Rhymes Like Dimes
I'm pretty sure it's lone.
Answer was pretty fucking deep too.
Most people don't like wolf as much as they liked bastard/goblin, because it's more of a "serious" album, but i enjoy it. You can almost feel his anger.
I watched the first 10 seconds. I already knew that he was going for multis, you know how many songs have multis? Tech n9ne, pun. Both will kill eminem in certain aspects of multis. And eminem is one of the best multis.
fellow white person detected
and cant forget to mention his talented as fuck twin brother herbal t
seriously why THE FUCK are they both not rich/famous?
Prince EA will be hailed as one of the greats.
And a shitton more, really. All of his shit is great.
Also, speaking of Wax
I love That's That.
I think they will be famous in time. It seems they have achieved a form of success, at least.
Simply not true. Been at parties with the guy in the Twin Cities multiple times. He's an egotistical ass. If you ever spend any time around him outside of his stage persona you'll see.
Yung Lean is like a better Lil B.
nobody here fuckin with lil ugly mane?
eminem is a joke. he's a stupid novelty act. there just wasn't ANY other "white rapper" at the time other than ICP and Twiztid. that's all. since interscope wanted to promote him, he became the superstar but he sucks ASS and he's really embarrassingly weak, gay and stupid. total bitch ass. if only he had some competition... but he didn't.
If you don't have at least 8 of these albums you dont know shit
eyedea whooped his ass hard at a freestyle battle. dr dre offered eyedea a deal, he refused. he rapped because he loved rapping, not the money that followed it.
also cage's old shit is pretty ok
>if the opposite of a pro is a con then look beyond this
>then the opposite of congress must be progress.
Chance the Rapper
His entire discography
well, in my opinion at least
Go back to /r/hiphopheads you white suburban 16 year old cunt
made me shed a manly tear
love guitar on beats
dude doin it from my hometown
i like soulful shit, not all the glitter shit thats cloggin peoples ears today
