you need to look these people up man. your obviously missing the true meaning of hip-hop. Hip-hop isn't about bragging about what you have, but it suppose to come from the heart and talk about a struggle or a blessing that you had in the past. thanks for the forum though. SAVE HIP-HOP!!!!!!!
A bit hypocritical, the east and west stuff between tupac and biggie and there jumped up little 'crews' is what made hip hop the arrogant pile of dog shit that it is now. They were gangster. Try Jurassic 5, thats what hip hop should be.
That's true but they also sent some good messages about the ILLUMINATI AND THE ZEITGEIST THAT EVERYBODY SHOULD KNOW. Thanks for throwing that point in there. Hip-hop has definitely been corrupted since they "reigned" the scene.
And they were great, but the world has suffered over a decade of talentless tupac wannabes ever since.... and they seem to have taken the wrong messages instead of the right. Im not American, and I hate materialism, so I guess I am biased.... my world is not all money, fast cars, and rolex watches, and definitely not guns.... thats why people like me like:-
The Specials The Smiths The Stone Roses Babyshambles Radiohead
Three of those are before my time, I'm an old fashioned type of fella in some respects. The state of music in the modern world is quite depressing, If I watch 10 artists in a row on MTV.... I feel like punching 8 of them as hard as I can in the head.
I like two of HealthTips artists, considering he only listed 4 , Pink Floyd and R.E.M (well I like their stuff from the early nineties). I really like a couple of Rolling Stones tracks, but Mick Jagger's face has put me off delving any deeper into their full body of works - smug bastard. As for David Bowie, I have just never 'got' him.
I havent even heard of any of those listed by BloodnLatex.
Oh right, lol, I never knew that.... Im young remember
Doherty has had it mate, never be able to replicate the first Libertines album. I used to have all the Babyshambles bootlegs from back when he was being thrown out of The Libertines around 2003/2004.
Guess what.... nearly every track on the last Babyshambles album, and the Doherty solo album, were written when he was still in The Libertines or just after. The bloke hasnt written anything new for years.... thats what severe drug abuse does to people though mate, hes not going to have the same brain that gave him 11 straight A's in his GCSEs and A Levels. The first babyshambles album was certainly 'shambolic', but dont let him fool you into thinking that he is writing better tunes now, all old stuff
Shotters Nation is a good album.. you can hear lots of influences in this - The doors (begging boogle), Cure and Stone Roses. I know Free, but dont know badcompany... *wink*.. guess it is an age thing.. hehe he
The National (alligator and boxer both brill albums) Ive met the band Elbow (stand out album... Leaders of the free world) Radiohead (ok computer and the bends) Ive met Thom Yorke! The Libertines/babyshambles (shotters nation is brill) Joy Division
