    Illmatic, stillmatic, gods son, streets disciple and life is good. Find most of the other albums pretty terrible production wise.

    Yeah, big year. El-P, Homeboy Sandman, Masta Ace, Aesop Rock, The Coup. Not to mention good UK stuff like Skuff (probably my album of the year), Caxton Press, Mystro, Verb T, Fliptrix and Kingdom of Fear.hing else.
    I have heard half of them and whilst they nice I wouldn't include them in top albums simply because I personally think they have mainly terrible production. The production is so bad that I would prefer to listen to tracks like sandmans soulclap with people just clapping.
    The sound you seem to like (I'm guessing Timbaland, Jermaine Dupri, Swizz Beatz) doesn't really exist any more. A blessing imho.

    Neptunes, no id, Pete rock, Marley marl, j dilla, just blaze, bio 1da, dre, k west, premier.

    Clearly from me saying I love jadakiss, styles, clipse and NAS you came to the obvious intelligent thinking I love production from people like j. Dupri? Maybe puff daddy too? Maybe commercial timberland?

    Is anyone else feeling Macklemore btw?

    It's borderline cheesy but I find myself liking it. He's kind of like Kanye but not a total dick.
  • Deleted user 10 January 2013 10:08:06
    I love all the artists on the back of my "BiGGHiTZ 2000-2004" albums.
  • Deleted user 10 January 2013 10:11:06
    All good beat makers, although I wonder if we would agree on which of their stuff is good.

    What No ID stuff do you like?

    Anyway, I don't really get why you can't find stuff you like these days. Seems to me there's plenty of stuff like that around these days.

    Most of it, he is versatile. More recently I liked his work on life is good, blueprint 3, dark twisted fantasy. Have not heard the common album he produced yet.

    Never heard anything but I'm intrigued. Not by the Kanye part, but by the self depreciating rap schtick. Is it anything like J-Zone in that respect?
  • Deleted user 10 January 2013 10:26:03
    Hah, the only thing I like really are the two Common albums :D

    estoof - not quite as far as J-Zone and he's more commercial sounding, although some of his stuff gets there. He has both sides really. A lot of it is conscious (but not in the Talib Kwel kind of way) but some of it is funny.

    Check out the link from meme on the last page.

    What is more concerning is that my daughters like hip hop but are now old enough to say the words. Rap now banned. :( . Instead they have to listen to pink, Rita ora, maverick sabre, led zeppelin and any artists I like that don't swear.
    Shame as I love to listen to rap in the car. Although biz - just a friend still acceptable :)

    Edit, well pink does swear but I get the edited albums. Sucks.

    Yeah, responsibility blows.

    They had some rap for kids album on when I went into Jojo Mama Bebe's the other day. It was quite good. It was really old school tunes like Rapers Delight rewritten to be about eating your greens and such.

    Hah. Jojo Maman Bebe: For more discerning middle class children
  • Deleted user 10 January 2013 12:22:05
    Yeah quite. They actually just assume your son is called "Oscar" when you go in.
  • Deleted user 10 January 2013 12:27:16
    I can prob find some old skool that is more suitable but I have played most of that to death.

    Its the go to place from a pressie every time one of our friends drops one.

    Oh, on a similar note, theres a load of albums on itunes called 'rock-a-bye baby' (or similar) which are plinky plonky lullabye versions of your favourite songs. Actually very relaxing.
  • Deleted user 10 January 2013 12:29:14
    Incidentally pretty much anything from before 1985ish will have no bad language in it.

    Early Blackalicious/Gift of Gab has no bad language at all, and no parentory advisory label (afaik). So recommended for all ages. :)

    Dino 5 (Prince Paul, Chali2na from Jurassic 5, Wordworth, Lady Bug Mecca from Digable Planets & Scratch from The Roots) are a good option for the kids.

    I need a couple of mixtape download links please.
  • Deleted user 10 January 2013 18:16:06
    Adam f kaos, randomly put that on when I just drove to work. How that come about? English producer with little production in rap released an album with Redman, CNN, ll cool j, pharoahe monch, mop, beenie man, guru, de la soul.
    Crazy. Hadn't aged that well.
