      In terms of old-school hip hop, there's just a few things you need.

      - Eric B. & Rakim
      - NWA
      - A Tribe Called Quest
      - Afrikaa Bambaata & The Soulsonic Force


      I'm just talking real hip hop here.

        Hell, 3 of the nicest albums that came out last year are from 'old school' type cats (Ghostface and Masta Killa, both Wu tang members, and Masta Ace).


        ...you should check out the DANGER DOOM album. I forgot the name of the other album i was gonna say, but i think its ghost face and MF doom cant remeber.

          Hmm Snow wasn't a rapper. I did like the 2 hits he had. I was never into rap that much but the groups I liked back in the day were Wrex n Effect, Dre and Snoop, Bone Thugs n Harmony, and Lost Boys.

          I agree that most of the creativity in rap music is pretty much spent. With the exception of 50 cent (personally not a fan!), Eminem, and Outkast (light/easy listening rap if you want to call it that..a lot of those rappers out now rap about the same thing and have the same image. There is nothing original about it. It's the same tired material about jewelry, clothes, cars, houses, girls shaking their asses, etc. There was definitely more substance and authenticity back in the day. A lot of it is just noise to me..don't get me started on that Crunk trend :roll:


          I agree. How can ANYONE like that crap? All I hear out of it is screaming.

            I'm not a little John fan but a little noise never hurt.
            As for as old school goes.......there's so much. The 80's was a very entertaining era for music fans. no doubt
