oh, you must nota gotten the memo: mobb deep works for 50 now. its not the same as when they responded to pac, theyre his bitches now. which, given how prodigy runs his mouth, shouldnt surprise you any.


DoJ - nice additions. I know some Ras Kass and some JMT, dont know Apathy or Mr Lif much, will check em out soon. thanks man.

what do you think of kid cudi? technically he's no longer alterna-hop b/c his sound has become mainstream, but i think it's more of mainstream leaning to the alternative rather than him becoming mainstream. i'm loving his new album man on the moon.






colab w/ mgmt:



this one has an outkast vibe:

Haku - yeah, id been meaning to check out Cudi's album, that single gets played on loop but im somehow not quite sick of it yet, heh. he could be something.


Lo - ah, Delteron i know from the MC at least, Del tha Funkee Homosapien goes back. Sage and a few others are common indie hip hop picks, i can enjoy a few tracks here & there but like Aespon, Coup, Blackalicioius etc its hard for me to really get into it if im not big on their flow, personally. prolly last one to surprise me was Cannibal Ox. good entries though.

Pretty much all amazing stuff. Daedelous is great, I saw him with Busdriver, one of my favs, in Orlando a while back.

Busdriver is fantastic, speed, interesting production, and a truckload of irony.



Also, because they have a new album out, antipop consortium! This is off their first tho.

nice. Busdriver's flow is on some DJ Quik shit, but conscious, dont see that every day. antipop consortium track was pretty good, swear ive heard them elsewhere prior? anyway, good adds.


if i can get just one other person onto jazz-hop from my first post in this thread (or my last one before this), ill be happy.

Man, I forget making this thread...


ah, not to confuse: i did, i just split off the first post cause i wanted a separate thread for jazz-rap, felt it was large enough to warrant its own thing before trip-hop, underground etc came into play.


ive been making quiet threads for artists ive come across, ill post some stuff here later for j cole, jay electronica, shad, etc as its not stuff you'd normally get exposed to without looking.

Just to re-bump this. Sigur-Ros is 2/2 as regards hip hop mash ups. Not sure whether I prefer this or the Emancipator track though.



S'more Jehst while we're at it.
