    Just spotted this on a blog:

    New track by Timbaland feat. M.I.A.!

    Had a quick listen at work, and I think this is pretty awesome - not quite as good as her album though.

    Timbalands new album is amazing, theres a track on their with Fall Out Boy thats absolutely class.

    Big L
    I love Big L, sadly he was shot to pieces a few years back. He's responsible for some of my favourite lines of all time

    When it comes to gettin' nookie I'm not a rookie
    I got girls that make that chick Toni Braxton look like Whoopie

    His best tune (IMO) is either Ebonics or Devil's Son. Devil's Son is so unnecessarily aggresive and violent, it's fucking brilliant

    The mid-90s was hip hop's golden age for me, no question about it.

    I like all sorts of stuff, but particularly anything Erick Sermon's had a hand in - EPMD, his solo stuff, Redman's "Muddy Waters" album (UNBELIEVABLE production on that one :D), Keith Murray etc.

    Also: Snoop's first album, Kool Keith in his various guises, Gang Starr, most of the Jay-Z ouvre, also Onyx (purely because Sticky Fingaz is completely off his trolley) and Ras Kass (Soul On Ice, great album).

    But very little of what's about at the moment floats my boat, TBH.

    Currently playing: Standing In A Car Park Simulator 2013

    There's still some good stuff being released, depends on your tastes I guess.

    I do. Think I might pick up something old.

    Anyway, you should all watch this, Adam Buxton vs NWA sketch. Truly a work of some considerable comedy talent :D

    Gah! Too late! I'll pick it up at some point, however I'm not 100% convinced I like his style

    The shop I went to had a shit selection, ended up getting Redman's new album as I happened to hear one of his tunes on a podcast as I was browsing

    I doubt many of you are big Dizzee Rascal fans but watch out for a new tune called Pussyhole, it's a banger

    Can I throw out a recommendation for anything and everything by an act called Gym Class Heroes. They deserve your attention. Stat.

    lol at the comments

    "This is the UK version of the song. All UK radio stations must play a majority of songs in local accents. Also, it is illegal to broadcast any anti-establishme4nyt message which is why Rage |Against the Machine have been arrested and sent to the Isle of Wight (=UK's Guantanamo Bay).
    They changed the lyrics of 'Killing in the Name of' so it says 'Thank you, I'll do as you tell me.'"

    Worth checking out:

    Main Source - Breaking Atoms

    A couple of years old now, but I've really been enjoying the Dangerdoom album over the past week or two. Where else can you hear someone rhyme about vats of urine?

    [edit] I've been enjoying Pigeon John, Pharcyde (Bizzare Ride) and Pete Rock's Petestrumentals recently as well. Well worth checking out if you haven't already

    I have found possibly the best hiphop mix album ever. Everyone who is into mid-nineties hiphop and/or funk should seriously buy this. Absolute stunner of a mix, hiphop mixed over soul, funk & disco. Awesome party/summer album

    No Fakin' DJs - Give An Example

    Buy buy buy!

    edit - should add, I got my copy in Fopp so go get it if you've got one near you

    Edit 2 - god this is so good, Edan over some fat early 70s funk. Goddamn!

    I just got a couple of El-P albums. They were good in places but in general I found there was too much going on and it all sounded kind of mushy.

    Reminded me a lot of Edan.

    I've bought something like 15 albums this month :/

    Yesterday I got that amazing mix I mentioned above, and I'm currently listening to Boogie Down Production's Sex & Violence. Early indications are positive!

    Not sure if this is the right thread for this, but here goes.

    I'm not into hip hop or rap, never have been. I like a lot of musical styles but chiefly punk, reggae and dub.... however my friend, in an effort to sway me, thinks I may like Dizzee Rascal, especially his first album.

    Now, is my friend talking out of his arse, or will it actually be worth me checking this guy out?

    Dizzee Rascal isn't his favourite musician by the way, DJ Shadow is.

    Hmm, I'm all for fun music so that doesn't sound too shabby. He told me I might like it because it's got really weird beats and I often like things that are eclectic and jarring. He played me one song (I think it was "Fix Up Look Sharp") which I liked the sound of as it was all over the place.

    How would you describe him then? I'm just after some impressions so I don't waste my time haha.

    fix up look sharp is pretty much a benchmark for most of his stuff. some of the beats are pretty tidy. most of it is just pretty cheesy, but fun.

    Sounds good to me! However, it depends what you mean by cheesy in this case, of course. What is his lyrical content like? The most important thing in a song to me (unless it's a dub track) is vocals.

    Sounds like I might give him a shot so far.

    Cool, will do then. Thanks!

    While I've never been into hip hop I do always try to branch out to new things so who knows when I might find something there that I like.

    Yeah innit, Jezebel and Fix up are my favourite on that. His new tune is heavy as well.
