That is a good one too. As for singles, I honestly don't know what many look like lol
Yeah, that's kinda what I was getting at. It'll be like an option for newly discovered/alternative art for songs you're familiar with.
or I could go with these
Those are actually pretty good!
What does New Age and Ambient count as? Traditional? Because those are my favourite genres.
I like the cover of the single "Bring The Pain" and as well as Tical for that matter lol
I also dig RZA's Afro Samurai one
Maybe put this one on the ceiling or something haha
"Illmatic" is a cool one imo and I also like "Return to the 36 Chambers" by ODB
Always a fan of older Kanye covers.
^ College dropout was my favorite by Kanye
Good kid maad city > your favorite album
UC, Ice Cube released the 25th anniversary edition of Death Certificate this week and that cover is dope too.
He also released a new video for Good Cop Bad Cop, which is one of 3 new tracks on the album. It really has that classic feel to me.
HOLY ****!!! I got shivers listening to that! Yeah that's definitely got a classic vibe to it lyrically with a modern production. Looks like it's on spotify so I'm definitely gonna be listening to that during work tomorrow. And yeah, that is a cool album cover! I don't think I've listened to any of Ice Cube's stuff since his War album. Only the older stuff.
Thanks for the heads up!
Really? You should check out his "I am the West" album, it's 7 years old now, but I loved it. It's more like "Hello" and less like "You can do it"
Also the video for "Mount Kushmore" by Snoop, Meth, Red and B-Real is amazing. It's also the perfect 4 guys for a track of that title.
I'll give it a listen to. I kinda stopped listening to his stuff cause I've always felt angry Ice Cube is the best Ice Cube and he kinda fell off after he it was apparent he was getting too well fed from that Are We There Yet money to be mad about anything.
I was wondering why this sounded familiar and I looked it up on Youtube. Now I remember why I forgot about it
He definitely was slipping, no doubt. I didn't mind alot of the tracks on the 2 War & Peace albums, but I didn't like much after until he released I am the West.
Drink the Kool-Aid is a track you should definitely check out.
Also Ice Cubejust signed with Interscope. Remember back in the day when there were rumors of a Dre/Cube album after doing Natural Born Killaz? It was tentatively title Helter Skelter. It might be 20+ years late, but maybe now that they are on the same label it could come to fruition.
Prodigy of Mobb Deep died today. Sounds like it might be tied to having sickle cell anemia, which he's had since birth.
The Prodigy news hurt he grew up in the trenches of New York hip hop and really shaped it. If i could rap like one rapper ever it would be Prodigy, or maye Big Pun. Nobody could flip short lines like P, there was a reason he was sampled and scratched by so many rappers and DJs.

German rap sounds hardcore. Don't know what they are saying but they sound angry
Are you sure it wasn't the children's music?
Even chick rappers sounds vicious in German
Yeah pretty sure. The group also does English music. They are a grimy german hiup-hop group that works with and produces for ONYX. Also I heard "Luger" quite a bit, so I assume someone is getting capped.
Kendrick is probably (definitely) the better lyricist and artist, but I prefer Schoolboy Q's music. I enjoyed Blank Face and Oxymoron more than DAMN. TPAB, Good kid etc but that's just due to Q having a flow and style that I like better.
Kendrick is ****ing amazing tho. TDE is dope as a whole
I like TDE, I also like Pro Era.
Some of my favorite artists right now and have been for a while are;
Chance, Noname, Token, Mac Miller, Merkules, Sampha (not rap but still check him out)
Just bought some tickets to see Kendrick/Travis Scott/DRAM in Vancouver. Will be a fun road trip with my girlfriend who has never seen a rap show before. So I splurged and got floor seats, 9th row dead center stage.
3rd time seeing Kendrick, and couldn't be more excited. DAMN. is one of my favorite albums in the past 5-10 years.
Analytically, I have to say, that your purchase was garbage.
Here's some metrics I made up.
Now you can see why going to a Kendrick show, wasn't the best idea.
The lyrics/60 are lower than say a Yachty show.
Yachty > Kendrick confirmed.
