I've dabbled with hip hop over the years but not heavily, never seemed to click properly with me. The past week something has happened and it's all I'm playing on the 'phones into work. Being a compulsive obsessive kinda guy I now want more more more. I like it kind of rough and scuzzy, murky, trippy, amazing sonics and textures. Rattling my brain over the past weeks have been:
Wu Tang - 36 Chambers
Genius/GZA - Liquid Swords
Missy Elliott - This Is Not A Test, Under Construction, Miss E
Beasties - CYH, Ill Comm, Pauls Boutique
Run DMC - Greatest
Outkast - Aquemeni, Speakerboxxx
then some Kelis, MIA, Fugees blah de blah.
So, I've been googling Cannibal Ox, Company Flow, Raekwon, Tribe Called Quest, Ol Dirty B'stard etc etc, wondering what sonic delights to try out next. Yep, I know I prob sound behind the times but hey, I've got to ask.
