HIP HOP GENERAL
GET IN HERE MOTHAFUCKAS
Hopefully /hhg/ can be a thing this year and not the sorry piece of shit it was starting become towards the end of 2015, which sucks because that was a pretty dope year for hip-hop
Post some dope 2016 tracks.
Not 2016, but this was late 2015 and didn't get enough attention even though it's easily Waka's best song.
This years been locking pretty promising. Kanye's album and YG's album will probs be the first hits of the year judging by their singles.
New track for the Hiphop project ! :)
Enjoy,feedback on SC !
Have you watched their freestyle on Tim Westwood? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D1_mhjLDb3M
>go listen to eminem
>listens to young thug and future, two of the whitest rappers in the industry.
spoiler alert: real niggas dont listen to future and young thug. Maybe future, but definitely not young thug
am i the only one here who legitimately hates drake?
not even trying to be contrarian, i can't stand him
hotline bling is so fucking boring its like watching tennis at the retirement home, its that awkward uncomfortable boring you only rarely experience from things that truly excel at it
Would /hhg/ play a text simulation video game where you play as a rapper?
>you start as a rapper, pick a rapper name and some stats (race, age, state/country, etc)
>you start with an amount of virtual points which you use on skills (lyricism, flow, rhyming, self-production, etc)
>you make albums and mixtapes (not entirely sure how this would work) and try to get critical acclaim and record sales (and try to get signed after a few tapes)
>you pay for features and beats with virtual points
>you can start beefs and other rappers might start beefs with you
>it would contain a large database of real rappers for features, beefs, labels, etc
>the end goal is to reach "legend" status
>works similar to Extreme Warfare Revenge and Total Extreme Wrestling in some aspects
Retarded idea or nah?
>am i the only one here who legitimately hates drake?
Surprised Travis Scott or Post Malone haven't been mentioned, hell 50 cent is looking for that comeback, his mixtape was pretty sick
Hated IYRTITL since it came out, always thought it was most the most overrated project of the year but iv'e literally been bumping it daily for the last month now
Who else gets this wih albums
quickly quick produced freestyle ep
Tybg for the hyphy influenced
dunno what this is but i liked it
Anyone looking forward to new Rittz? Next To Nothing was great, hopefully he'll be able to top it.
uhhhhhh honestly 50s music career is dead. his 'beef' with meek mill is underwhelming and all we're getting so far is normie IG memes. all I see him as now is a 40 year old man that promotes his shit tier liquor and posts memes about rappers he doesn't like
Can someone name a good one? Serious question. Post Malone is pretty trash, rappers like Action Bronson and Mac Miller have SOME good tracks, but never seem to consistently impress me.
I would, but it needs potential routes that will fuck up your progress like drug addiction or getting bitches pregnant or some shit.
man i can't watch that shit, it's painful
and i don't trust that Offset knows what's going on business-wise
my guess is that 300 Entertainment blocked the album because they thought the quality wasn't up to par. and if that's the case, it's not getting out. because regardless of if Migos likes 300 Entertainment, they've got Young Thug's ear and he's going to do what they tell him
Fuckers in school been telling me always in the barbershop talking 'bout Chief Keef ain't about this, Chief Keef ain't about that. They say he the nigga don't be putting in no work shut the FUCK UP. Y'ALL NIGGAS AIN'T KNOW SHIT. All you motherfuckers talking bout Chief Keef ain't no hitta, Chief Keef ain't this, Chief Keef a fake, SHUT THE FUCK UP. Y'ALL DON'T BE WITH THAT NIGGA. Y'ALL KNOW THAT NIGGA GOT CAUGHT WITH A RATCHET, SHOOTING AT THE POLICE AND SHIT. NIGGAS been on probation since I don't know when. Motherfucker stop fucking playing him like that. Them niggas savages out there. If I catch another motherfucker talking sweet 'bout Chief Keef I'm FUCKING BEATING THEY ASS. I'm not fucking playing no more.
hip hop was the original term for that kind of music
in the early 90s, a subgenre of hip hop, gangsta rap, became super popular to the point where it accounted for most of the hip hop being made - or at least it was the majority of what was in the mainstream
so instead of hip hop, it was gangsta rap, which got shortened to just rap. and eventually rap was used interchangeably for hip hop.
nowadays you'll have some people who get upset when people call hip hop music rap, but to be honest those people are just being pedantic. the english language is constantly changing and evolving
i wish hip hop would die already so that you can discuss hip hop on the internet without all the latest memerap
I love them.
I've honestly never heard a party album with the same level of replayability as Sremmlife. I still have listen to that record regularly. Every song is a single and there isn't really a song on there that I don't like.
I hope they build on that for Sremmlife 2 which is supposed to come out soon. I reckon they'll experiment a bit more with this one.
Post Malone's current music is decent but he's so fucking fake.
He was originally more country oriented which can be proved here with this Bob Dylan cover of his.
He was in with a popular Minecraft YouTube channel.
And, last but DEFINITELY not fucking least, he made this cringefest of a music video while wearing booty shorts.
The Bob Dylan thing is fairly respectable because he's doing the song justice and sounds pretty good and experimenting, but the other 2 are fairly cringey.
Dude's acting all hard and shit in his new music but did Minecraft on YouTube.
And that last video. Oh my fucking god.
This is dope but I really hope it isn't representative of their album.
I want them to get fucking WEIRD for Sremmlife 2. Like I reckon if they experimented with their music they could release the dopest bangers ever.
New Nef the Pharoah song with Ty Dolla $ign and new Thugger song are both tight as fuck. I feel like Nef could blow up outside the Bay if he tried/got lucky
wtf is going on with Yasiin?? dude is trapped in Africa or some shit
general reminder Pharoah Monch is top 10 rappers ever.
can we all take a moment to recognize the next god
Who hype for their next project?
Slug is mixed and isn't even good. seriously why do people like him? He's slow, boring, generic, and clumsy with words.
Do white people just like listening to people of similar skill level to them?
Lil Ugly Mane
Mac Miller and Action Bronson aren't THAT bad. Mac is definitely improving.
Nobody in this thread has mentioned Snow. What a shame.
Her new mixtape The Rest Comes Later just came out this summer and y'all sleepin on it.
You're welcome, faggots.
hiphop is the bigger name for the whole culture
the four pillars of Hiphop are MCing (MC meaning master of ceremonies, so basically rapping), DJing, breakdancing and graffiti (five pillars if you count knowledge)
rap is just short for rhythm and poetry and its simply the spoken word equivalent to singing
calling hiphop music rap is just an abbreviation, if it has rapping in it you can call it rap music while instrumental music can only be called hiphop (ignoring the sub genres), not rap music
>he is good with words
Aside from You Can't Imagine How Much Fun We're Having, everything he makes is slow and cringe worthy. He's the stereotypical white kid who refuses to acknowledge that he's white and insists on making black music even though it's clumsy. Ant is a good producer but not consistent throughout all his albums and wasted his entire career on a shit rapper.
And I've listened to all of his shit multiple times. I listen to all hip hop, and he's not good. The only time he could make decent music is when he was drunk for literally 18 months straight.
You dont build a record label from the ground up and become one of the most successful underground rappers without having rhythm. I dont even like his style but your lying to your self if you say he does not have talent. His music pays his bills so he is doing something right.
his whole aesthetic
i'm a sucker for the "i do drugs because i'm sad" thing
he raps over excellent druggy beats
the autotune fits that whole aesthetic well
he's got a ton of great songs
i used to not get it too, but he grows on ya
Future is alright and has some good songs, but is overrated by both plebs on twitter and people on /mu/. Never dissapoints on a feature but his own music is hit or miss of fillers and bangers
Thugger is the future, unique, catchy, and unlike Future he isnt pleb, plebs give him so much hate for sus meterosexual shit he does. His projects are also full of filler, but he has higher highs and lower lows than Future
Rich Gang > Freeband Gang
Honest > ICFN2
1017 Thug>=Pluto 3D
Metro Boomin is the real MVP above both of them though, without him (and sort of Sonny Digital/808 Mafia/DJ Esco, but mosty metro) neither of these two would actually be big
i genuinely like both, for different reasons.
thug is form over function. he's not a rapper's rapper, he's a style. he's a culture. he's an ethos. his sound is large, he fills space well. no one knows though if this style can last...a lot of people put stock in his creativity. i'm one of them.
future has chops and he paints images well. some people can actually feel what he's talking about. some people reflect on it. future is giving something, and it's truth (whether or not it's true). how can anyone dislike art that's so real?
>You dont build a record label from the ground up and become one of the most successful underground rappers without having rhythm
and yet, there's Slug, boasting no talent whatsoever and relying on tone-deaf hipsters and the talent of other artists on the label to succeed.
Slug doesn't have style. He lacks it. He's just bad.
is kool a.d. the best rapper alive?
>tfw yall still sleepin on Coin Locker Kid
spiritual miracle third eye indigo child bullshit is good
see pic related, its good
cringy white rappers are the worst
Damn /hhg/ really is a bunch of thugger nutriders, I thought that was a meme.
check this out
heard first about Father on the IT G MA remix but didn't like him, but his lyrics really fit these dark beats(this one is self-produced).
"She said I hit, baby girl she lying
She say she pregnant, I don't believe in science
Don't trust religion neither"
Bonus: Tommy Genesis is hot af
young thug is shit, I thought this board had taste, or at least tries to pretend at having taste. Anyone without real lyrical ability can't be considered a good rapper. I shouldn't get upset, realizing that this board is full of posturing tweens who try to be hip to what's trending (without being overtly mainstream yet), but listening to you guys praise Young Thug is laughable.
>caring about lyrics
People who say this have no sense of rhythm.
Rotating this along with future reign/ss2/trick dice/summertime06... don't sleep
have some Polish tracks I like
He's inconsistent, half the tracks on any particular album will be shit. My favorite record by him was probably The First Agreement. His new album is supposedly a vast improvement but I haven't given it a proper listen.
>Not caring about lyrics
It's not so much about rappers having great lyrics cause I can handle some average ass lyrics it's just Young Thugs lyrics are ridiculously bad, I can't listen to him because he says the most stupid shit.
>watch Straight Outta Compton
>listening to nothing but NWA, Dre, Snoop, and 2Pac
What the hell is happening to me? I used to hate this stuff two years ago.
