Hip-Hop started off as a means of expressing your opinion, your feelings and your hardships. Young men and women living in New York slums in 1973, started Hip-Hop with African melinated throat and drums which rhymed rythmically with the beat. DJ Clive Kool Herc Campbellwas the originator of Hip-Hop, mixing African, Jamaican and Breaks Beats into what is known today as Hip-Hop. Hip-Hop was a great means of spreading messages, mainly ones about hardships and opression, but also a way of spreading joy and good vibes.

Today Hip-hop has turned into a money making machine, that spreads messages of greed, corruption, disrespect for life, hate, murder and the objectification of 'hoes'. 'Artists' such as Li'l Wayne and Gucci man are feeding this torrent of 'music' that spreads the wrong message and is a huge contributing factor to the greed and hate of todays youth.

There are still Artists today that produce true Hip-Hop and keep the blackening heart of Hip-Hop beating. Artists such as The Pharcyde, KRS One, Dead Prez and Mos Def strive to keep Hip-Hop's soul going.

I am dedicating this Thread to all true Hip-Hop, no matter the artist, the production scale, the country it comes from or when it was produced, please share some of your favourite Hip-Hop tracks.

I'll start off with a few of mine.

I came in here thinking you were gonna post crap like Immortal Teknique or whatever but you didn't and I see Nas's Hip Hop Is Dead first. THANK YOU for appreciating real hip hop/poetry (what Nas really is known for) and not saying Immortal whatever his name is, is good and we should all listen to it. I hate when people do that.

S&F

And may I add this:

Sorry, Tech n9ne isn't Hip-Hop, or Rap. He is more Crunk, crazy, hyphy club rap. That does not count as "True Hip Hop". And I don't even wanna know what gave you that impression, hahaha

No worries brother.

I love Dilated peoples but not so sure about Kanye, his music nowadays is of the lowest quality. More Pop than Hip-hop.

Thanks for contributing.

nass is a joke man he only has a few good songs


No, it is not what real hip hop is about. Hip hop is about rhyming ingenuity. Not talking about how the government screws us over on everything. I think you need a Hip Hop REBOOT.

And Immortal Teknique not selling out to the big record companies doesn't mean he's "a real rapper", it means he couldn't sell out anyways to big record companies because he's too furious and uncontrollable and a bad influence for many across the world.....His lyrics should tell you that more than I can say in 50 paragraphs. Immortal may have some good lyricism but he is NOT HIP HOP. NAS IS REAL HIP HOP. DEL THA FUNKY HOMOSAPIEN is true HIP HOP, not some dude who hates his government and raps about it in every single song.

Yeah, I'm not sure what to say about Kanye lol but Dilated Peoples and the rap group Heiroglyphics. To the OP, I really want you watch this music video. It's Del Tha Funkee Homosapien. Speaking true words on real hip hop in this song, tell me if you'd agree

Ah yes, I can't post any videos at present but what I will say.
My 2 cents:

The purporseful dismantling of hip hop by the powers that be have landed a particularly hard blow on the female Mcs of Hip hop.

By that I mean the fly girls, the lyricsts, the queen mothers.

My fondest memory was being a little girl and loving hip hop and being elated when I saw salt-n-peppa videos. Who were those girls on stage with the microphone and fly cuts?

Or when The Fugees "The Score" dropped and the then Lauryn Hill (who I had only seen in Sister Act 2 at the time) was undeniably the best Lyricst on the album. My mind was blown.

What happened was that when lil Kim was introduced , a plethora of male industry heads (and "others") schemed to make less talented carbon copies to infiltrate the system. (Giving respect where respect is due Lil Kim is a Legend in her own right which could be the reason so many clones have to attack her instead of paying homage)

Sadly so many young women needing their identity in hip hop are only left with the N.Minajs - who would make a better BroadWay show or haunted house exihibit than MC.

Thanks for starting thread.

I respectfully disagree, If Hip-Hop were about "Rhyming INgenuity", it would have always been as it is today...

Today's hip hop does not lack rhyming ingenuity. The artists of today use intricate flows and many are plethoric rappers in their own right. Hip Hop is about Ideas, not skill. Otherwise someone like Drake is the best ever, even though he talks about nothing but drinking and whatnot.

I do not share the OP's views on A Tribe Called Quest being included in this thread, but then again I suppose it is all in the eyes of the beholder.

I am more of a fan of the underground scene.

Atmosphere, Murs, Aesop Rock, Grieves, Jay Electronica, ect are the only artists in the 'Rap/Hip-Hop' scene I respect/
