  • What do you guys think about these artists?

    The other day, I was in my cousin's car listening to some tracks. A track came up by Biz Markie which sucked. Then he put on a DE LA SOUL song which sucked even more. I didn't know how he could enjoy them.

    Now, don't get me wrong, I've been listening to Hip-Hop for a long time and not just the mainstream stuff. I've tried to listen to every album since the last 80s(The list is enormous) and these guys (DE LA SOUL, Tribe called quest, etc.) and I didn't hit it off. Maybe cuz I'm not used to positive rap. Tupac rapped about positive stuff but he still mixed it up a bit which I respected. Constant positive rap bores me. Anyone else feel the same way?

    I respect everyone's opinions and am not looking to hate on you cuz you like these artists, but I just wanna see what you guys think.

      I love De La Soul & Tribe Called Quest. Classic hip hop. "Rollerskating Jam named saturday" was killer!

        I'm not that familiar with De La Soul .. but Biz Markie and A Tribe Called Quest are dope in my opinion

        Biz Markie is like a humorous side of rap .. kind of like Bizarre but less raunchy and shit haha

        A Tribe Called Quest is lyrical as shit, I guess it all depends on what kind of rap you like or what mood you're in at the time

            Yeah, a lot of people aren't able to get into the "conscious" MC. Rappers such as Talib Kweli, Common and Mos Def are often accused of being "boring". If you don't like those type of artists, that's fine, I don't have a problem with that.

            But personally, I think people need to learn how to open their mind, and hear some new shit.

            Hip-Hop music dosen't have to be laced with gunshots and swear words to be enjoyable.

              Of course not, it's not like I'd bump their albums everyday tho, it's just not something I'd listen to over and over again.

                I find it hard to listen to Ice Cube's Bomb Squad produced albums... I don't know maybe they'll grow on me. There are certain songs which I really like, but then others I just can't get into..

                  I know what you mean, Amerikkkaz Most Wanted is pretty dull but there are several good tracks(even though it is "conscious" a little) to bump on there, Cube still mixed it up though. Death Certificate, Lethal Injection and The Predator are pretty sick though, that's when Cube was in his prime.

                    I'll be honest, I haven't heard a lot of De La Soul or A Tribe Called Quest. But I've been meaning to listen to more of their music, and I think I'll like it, because from what I've heard their very similar to Common and Talib Kweli.

                    Don't get me wrong, I like more than just "concious" Hip-Hop, I listen to everything from Old School to Underground. (Big Daddy Kane, Masta Ace)

                    The reason I have so much respect for conscious MC's is because not only is their music great, but it's very uplifting, which is rare nowadays.

                    "At exactly which point do you start to realize
                    That life without knowledge is, death in disguise?"-Talib Kweli

                    Yeah, that's cool.

                    But personally, I love their music, I can bump it all day every day.

                      That's interesting, are you saying because you grew up in a positive environment music with a more positive message isnt relative to you or is wasted on you?

                      It's an interesting theory, because I know I liked listening to conscious rappers because they were offering solutions to the problems I saw on a daily basis growing up. And positive songs gave me something to look forward to.

                            I like a few songs off Quality and Be but other than that, I have to agree.
