So, that hip hop thing...
« on: August 19, 2014, 11:48:31 pm »
I am really trying to get in the genera, but for me, it is so hard to find any good artist.
I have a general hatred for the mainstream stuff, and I only know one artist I like, and a fair bit of their songs that aren't that good, and that's Stateless. ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7NaQnAkO2wU&index=2 )

As far as rappers, I found this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=exiGmYIMlEA
Yeah, the lyrics are pretty bad, but I really like the style, if any of you know any more artist with that style or something like that, that would be great!

I am open to any recommendations, so just... er... do the thing!

Although I'm not an expert on hip hop, the main hip hop artists I like lean more away from what Stateless do.

They're not like Stateless, but if you want some basic hip hop artists:

My favourite hip hop artist is Hoodie Allen (who does lean away from the mainstream stuff), he's not a Stateless sort of type but he does some fantastic stuff (I'd recommend Pep Rally and Leap Year).

G-Eazy also, Must Be Nice was a great mixtape and These Things Happen was an alright album.

Shad, who does alternative hip hop which is awesome. (I'd recommend the album When This Is Over which was his first album and was self supported for a first listen), although more up-beat songs such as Fam Jam (Fe Sum Immigrins) are good.

K-Os is also good. Joyful Rebellion is one of my favourite hip hop albums.

Mac Miller is alright, but he leans more towards mainstream.

7 days after this thread was posted but whatever.

I recommend Fashawn he has a lot very deep soft songs that make ya think If you are looking for faster violent songs with equal lyrical capability then look into Tyler the Creator or Earl Sweatshirt. I guess you can also try Spose (The audacity is actually REALLY good) or Atmosphere and Aesop Rock, they have really unique voices and rhymes you'll probably like them if you haven't already heard them. Also if you're lookin for just beats without lyrics then try Red Shirt Beats or Apollo Brown. Hope you find something you like!
