I've been desperate to find anything sounding simular to Lil Ugly Mane. He is the dope IMHO.
If you wondering what it sounds like:
Any tips guys?
nothing like LUM, hes the undisputed GOAT
but try supa sortahuman, and to a way lesser extent, bones
also oblivion access gives me death grips vibes, but it's much more lyrical and much less beat-driven
For Uneven Compromise and everything before it, old Memphis shit. Look through /MHHG/ threads in the archive. TW3 is overrated as fuck though don't start with him.
For OA, El-P - Fantastic Damage, Cannibal Ox - The Cold Vein, etc
for Third Side Of Tape just listen to random shit off soundcloud and you'll get roughly the same standard of quality/good-bad ratio
Ugly Mane has a unique sound because he combined so many different influences, yet stuck to the same philosophies and aesthetic from the beginning.
If you want dark, evil sounding rap, look into the PsychopathicSavages youtube channel, but you won't get the lush, colorful production.
If you like his production check out people like Madlib, J Dilla, Kid Kola and turntable oriented producers, but you won't get the dark, in-your-face lyrics. It's an uneven compromise.
