    "Old School Vs. New School" is a VA album with remixes of older songs (jazzy jeff, tribe called quest, BDP, etc) with newer beats (moby, badboy bill, rabbit in the moon, etc). a definite recommend, esp. the summertime and five minutes of funk remixes.

    Has anybody from the US heard "The Streets"?
    I would be interested to hear what y'all think.
    Listen to "The Irony Of It All" or "Dry Your Eyes"

The only hip-hop I can think of that was more interesting was the Fugees and Lauryn Hill's solo stuff, and Faithless (although they were more a electronic/ pop/ crossover band who happened to have a rapper).

    Can anyone recommend good MUSICAL hip-hop?
    Most of these have been listed by previous folks, but here's what you should look for:

    The Roots
    Aesop Rock
    Jurassic 5
    Blackeyed Peas (although they are sell-outs)
    Jedi Mind Tricks

    I haven't heard that one, I tend to avoid tribute albums. The only rap tribute album I have is the NWA tribute from 1998, and I am so glad I got it for free, otherwise I would cry.

    It did get me thinking about my collection and some stuff I haven't listened to in a while: DJ Jazzy Jeff/Fresh Prince, Digital Underground, Sir Mix-A-Lot, NWA, Ice Cube, Whodini, Curtis Blow, Sugar Hill Gang, Grand Master Flash and the Furious 5.

    Source also put out a compilation album called History of Hip Hop. I have Vol 1 (I don't remember if there ever was a Vol 2). It was a nice mix of older stuff.

    I like Jedi Mind Tricks producer Stoupe, but Vinnie Paz is just such a retarded dimwitt it all just turns into comedy, espeially when he's rapping about his heart pumping the blood of royce gracie and sticking guns in your mouth over a cheesy spanish guitar loop... the fact that he was rapping about space aliens and conspiracy theories on their first album [The Psycho-Social, Chemical, Biological, and Electro-Magnetic Manipulation of Human Conciousness) makes his transformation into a homphobic streetthug even more hilarious.

    Anyway, I think Violent by Design was their best album. The beats were just bangin'

    Yeah, Visions of Gandhi was kinda bizarre. Stoupe the Enemy of Mankind produced Canibus' latest "Rip the Jacker" which is much better. I'm going to recommend Canibus generally. Also Dead Prez and Outkast among those who haven't been mentioned yet.

    Also, get the Blade II soundtrack, if only for the Mos Def and Massive Attack track.

    How about a mini-review to go along with your suggestions?


    Rap/hip hop I actually like:

    Immortal Technique: Excellent diction and choice of words. Good beats.
    Eminem: Has 'insight' about the rap game and society, raps from his heart and it is as if I can feel his emotion. Good beats no doubt.

    I like these two the most because they sing about something else rather than drugs, guns, sex, hoes and being tough all the time.


    Dr. Dre: That's my nickname to some people, the way my real name is pronounced.
    Good beats, like some of his stuff. Good producer as well.

    50-Cent, and G-Unit people: Yeah call me commercial, but I like SOME of their stuff.

    Snopp Dogg: Good flow and stuff to some of his songs.
    Pharrell compilations and NERD: LIKE! Good beats.

    Busta Rhymes: Guy is hilarious, you gotta check some of the music vids.
    Missy Elliot: Like SOME of the stuff, all around decent.
    Bone Thugs N Harmony: VERY melodic with guys that seem that they can sing.
    I enjoy hearing the chorus with multiple voices in there.
