    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.

    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.
    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?

    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.

    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.

    Yeah quite. They actually just assume your son is called "Oscar" when you go in.

    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.

    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.

    Brap, brap, old chap.

    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.

    You could make an album with all of them on if you like. You just pay them.

    He's the son of Alvin Stardust apparently. I guess if you send a tape of decent beats and a wad of cash to the right people, shit starts to happen. Plus he was pretty massive in drum and bass right before the hip hop stuff. It's not too dissimilar to that collaboration Mike Patton did with the X-Ecutioners.

    I always remember of that traffic awareness video with Alvin whenever I think of Adam F, in a leather jumpsuit waving a leather gloved (with gold rings over the top) finger at some children for not looking both ways. You must be out of your tiny minds!

    Back on the production thing.
    Went through the car CDs, two albums that good example of consistent beats are gangstarr - the ownerz and clipse - he'll hath no fury.

    Gangstarr, peace of mine is one of my all time favourites as it hits out at commercial radio etc.
