One of the greatest tracks of the GOAT...



It's from Cuban Linx so of course its grimey!
JonnyBlaze
Canibus-2012

Canibus---2nd round KO

Big L and Jay-Z freestyle

Jay Z sucks in my opinion,this was back in 95 and Big L smashes him in this freestyle..Big L is in the top 3 best ever..I think he is #1 though..Too bad he got killed..Nas is one of the best too in my opinion..Rewind is one of my favorites by him..Takes true skill to pull that song off..You guys will see I'm all about the lyrics and don't give a shit about the chorus..Rappers make it big because they focus all their attention on the chorus and the rest of the song sucks..


Big L---Danger Zone

Rakim--Don't sweat the technique

MC Juice--Freestyle or Written

Gotta listen to freestle or written..Juice is reppin the Chi and is also one of the best lyrical/freestyling artists out there..He kills it!!In my opinion he is the best freestyler out there..He did lose to Super natural in a battle but I think Juice won..

Danger Zone definitely one of the darkest sounding tracks with some twisted lyrics!

"Every minute my styles switches up/They say a real man don't hit a girl well I ain't real cus I beat bitches up

Hahahaha..It's about where he is from..Big L is a beast on the mic..That song is probably one of his darkest songs though..That was off his first cd..

Check this shit out..Hip hop at its best!!

Big L---The heist

Big L---casualties of a dice game

Big L---intro

Man, I must be getting old. However, I guess rappers who came out in 1994 are now considered Ol School. Nas is cool, but I still consider KRS1 to be the best to ever grab a mic. I'm sure there is some guy that older than me that will come on and say Melle Mel was the greatest and that KRS1 aint old school. Now my son listens to cats like Soulja Boy and Lil Wayne. My god!!!!

Lucky for me, I still have most of KRS1's albums. I force feed my boys alot of KRS1, LL, Rakim, Run/DMC, Public Enemy, EPMD and Big Daddy Kane. I keep 'em educated about rap. When they are old enough to read The Source and vote for the 10 greatest rappers of all time, these "pioneers" wont be forgotten. Lil Wayne wont come off in the top 5.
JonnyBlaze
Lil Wayne SUCKS..He has NO skill at all..His freestyles are pathetic..Rakim w/Eric B,Krs1,Big L,Canibus,Juice are the truth...What do ya all think about the videos I posted??Wondering what ya all think..
BigG
I never was a big fan of Beanie Sigel but this is one of my favorite tracks..just listen to this song..



KYLE THEEE SPINKS FAN
"Play your cards, go against all odds shoot for the moon if you miss you're still amongst those stars". I love that beanie sigel song, and that is my favorite quote in life probably.

I dont know how to post videos but i love these older songs.
Eric B/Rakim: I aint no joke
Souls of Mischief: 93 til infinity
Grandmaster Flash: The Message
Most old school rap is good stuff.
Some newer stuff yall should check out, just search the song on youtube.
Brother Ali: Daylight
Atmosphere: Dreamer
eMc: Winds of Change
KYLE THEEE SPINKS FAN
Double post, sorry
BigG
Yeah that song by Beanie is so real....one of the best I've ever heard. Also cool that he payed homepage to the legendary song "Mind playing tricks on me".


JD
I have actually been reminiscing the past week or so...listening to Mecca and the Soul Brother, and Midnight Marauders recently.

Two GREAT albums.
BigG
Great taste JD..I love ATCQ...

Also weather you like Eminem or not (I'm a really big fan) don't lie and say you don't feel this song...

Along with your post about great lyrics, there's a country song (I don't know the name or who sings it) with some good ones:

I woke up this morning,
my baby was gone,
She took the truck,
And I got so mad I threw my drink across the lawn

Battle---Juice vs. Eminem

Eminem gets smashed..Juice is one of the best freestylers and mcees out there..Check out any of Juice's other battles..Only guy he has lost to is Supernatural but I think Juice won that one(one of the best battles ever)..If none of ya have heard Juice flow,you all are missin out..
JonnyBlaze
East Flatbush Project

Beat isn't as loud as in this next link but this is the actual music video..This is one of my top 5 favorite beats ever..Bad ass song..

Same song,louder beat



BigG


It really doesn't get any better than Memory Lane...

"The most dangerous MC is...."
PR316
Oh man, Illmatic.

NY State of Mind, Memory Lane, World Is Yourz, every track on that one.


A personal favorite of mine that is SO UNDERRATED is Eric B and Rakim's "Don't Sweat the Technique". Probably Rakim's best overall work in terms of creativity and versatility. Casualties of War, The Punisher, Know The Ledge, ageless.


Favorite MC of all time is Big Daddy Kane. The originator to what Biggie, Jay-Z, and so many others were trying to do.

Yeah, they should've been massive, but...

Hijack were a hip hop group from Brixton in London, featuring Kamanchi Sly, DJ Supreme, DJ Undercover, Ulysses, Agent Fritz and Agent Clueso. Their first single, "Style Wars" (Music of Life, 1988 caught the attention of the British hip hop community and laid much of the ground work for what was to come from the scene over the next few years. Their next release, "Hold No Hostage/Doomsday of Rap" (Music of Life, 1989) became an underground hit across Europe, bringing them to the attention of West Coast rapper Ice T.

Ice T signed the group to his own Rhyme Syndicate Records label, and they recorded and released the single "The Badman is Robbin'" (Rhyme Syndicate Records, 1989). The group's debut album - The Horns of Jericho (Rhyme Syndicate Records, 1991) - was recorded around the same time, but Warner Brothers (who had a distribution deal with Rhyme Syndicate Records) deemed Hijack's British hardcore hip hop style and British accents too different for US audiences. Hence, the album was never released in the US, although the company released the album to the foreign market to great critical acclaim.

Following this upset, the group split up and went their separate ways.


Shame...

This was another favourite of mine:

Maxy
Yeah I remember they linked up with Ice T in some way but they just seemed to fade out. I know why now. Do you remember the Ruthless Rap Assassins?

Keith, welcome back. But with all due respect, I'm sure that people don't want to hear your opinion on rap, we want to see you be funny and entertain us like you once did laugh.gif
Any new material?


He's sold out laugh.gif

I used to like these a lot back in the day...

I don't listen to rap anymore but the older stuff was good.


1991: Public Enemy - Can't truss it. Mad props and respect to these guys, they don't like the N word. If i could vote for a best of all time rap song this would be it, it's timeless, if it had just come out it would be ripping apart the charts.



1989: Young MC - Bust a Move. This guy was my favorite, had a posotive message mostly.



1989: Young MC - I Come Off. This one shows his mad lyrical genius skillz, and he mentions Tyson in this song.



1988: Rob Base and DJ Easy Rock - It Takes Two.



1989: 3rd Bass - Steppin' To The A.M.

1992: Beastie Boys - So What'Cha Want.
