    I know there are a lot of haters and alot of rock lovers, but wanted to see if anyone liked rap on the forum. And no I'm not talking about 50 Cent and Soulja boy, like the underground rappers. I just got all of Immortal Technique's and Jedi Mind Tricks' albums and I have to say they're pretty good. Then of course, I listen to Talib Kweli, TI, Lil Wayne(Yes, I like him), Kanye West, Run-DMC(Legendary), and a few more but those are the only ones off the top of my head.

    I'm trying to get into some old school, like Biggie and Tupac, but to be honest I don't know where to start

    So.....who likes rap?

    And please don't let this turn into a hate thread, if you don't like rap please refrain from posting in the thread.

    Honestly me and Tian_Kr are the most rap lovers your gonna find on this forum.

    . I'm willing to listen to the best of the best, and yes I really don't know where to start cause they're so many options... and so little time for me. I heard of NWA, Straight outta Compton people, but never heard of Kurtis Blow

    Me too!




    You should start by picking a region(east, west, south, etc) you're interested in, then we could tell you a few artist from there.

    Also, 50 Cent's first album was really good, his later albums are not so good. That's all people remember him for, but I remember how good the first one was so I still think he can make good music.


    If you like Lil Wayne, he has a mixtape called the Dedication 3 out, it's pretty good. Tupac's Greatest Hits is a good collection of his best songs. I'm not a big Biggie fan. Try some of T.I.'s older albums if you like him. Same with the others you mentioned. Just get their old music and see if you like it too.

    The farthest back you can go is probably the Sugar Hill Gang's Rapper's Delight, which was the first hip-hop song to crack the Top 10.

    50's first album did had good replay value. I agree. And the Dedication 3 is decent.

    I think you might like Little Brother. If you've never heard of them, that is.
