Inspired by the Go! Teams homage to old hip-hop, I would like to request some suggestions for stuff.
pretyt much anything
so am open to trying whatever others think is good.
Tis very good.
But seriass, get it! It's quite Go! Team-y actually, I reckon.
I <3 your taste in music :D
Main Source - Breaking Atoms
A Tribe Called Quest - Low End Theory
Too $hort - Born to Mack
Eric B and Rakim - Paid in Full
Ultramagnetic MCs - Critical Beatdown
All of those are pretty great albums, although I'd recommend Main Source the highest. Such a brilliant record.
Maybe a comp would be best first though...
oh dear god they're good
Pete Rock and CL Smooth
Boogie Down Productions
Erik B and Rakim
methods is awesome.
buggin' out is one of my favourite songs.
Especially Eric B & Rakim and Ultramagnetic MCs, I can't reccomend those albums enough.
House Of Pain
actually im in quite a swoon of cliques, move along =D
The Predator - Classic like it was a good day and Check Yo Self
Death Certificate - Angry, hate filled rap album its fucking ace. My summer vacation is superb
is an underrated gem, very experimental in places. Little known fact: he was the inspiration for Kool Thing by Sonic Youth!
A Tribe Called Quest
A TRIBE CALLED QUEST
bizarre ride 2
for the 80s, get the 'essentials' like "Criminal Minded" by BDP and some Eric B. & Rakim records and the Juice Crew and whatnot but mostly search out compilations. Most of the best records from the 80s are one-hit wonders or by people that put out one crap LP.
something like this: http://www.discogs.com/release/1005325
for the 90s then Nas "Illmatic", Ultramags, A Tribe Called Quest, Notorious B.I.G.'s first record, Beatnuts, anything the Beatminerz were involved in in the early 90s, Gangstarr, Pete Rock & CL Smooth blah blah blah blah blah

Cold Crush Brothers
