I think first of all, there is a hypnotic quality to a lot of their beats that I love. Their production is just great overall, and very inventive.
They do have a certain, sparse and precise production style though, which doesn't give you the warmth or energy of more traditional soul and funk influenced hip hop, which either appeals to you or not.

Their rapping is top class as well, listen to the flow on the first verse of Ghostlawns, it's brilliant. Lyrically they can sometimes be a little too cryptic, and not quite up there with the best, but still very solid.

Antipop for me too. One of the very few Wu Tang dislikers on the forum I think.

Glad to see Antipop is taking this away. I slightly prefer Beans' solo work, but Arrhythmia is a class album that no collection would be complete without.

Let it sink in, Fasho.

okay, voting Antipop for a laugh is one thing, but can you imagine hip hop without the Wu? Would antipop consortium exist if they'd grown up on A Tribe Called Quest and Dr. Dre? There's an entire facet of the genre missing there. A limb. Don't leave hip-hop crippled with your vote!

this is fun

I love Wu and their influence & all that jazz, but I find Antipop a tad more enjoyable.

Also I agree, this is fuun.

look into Ol' Dirty Bastard's puppydog eyes and vote Antipop Consortium to his face. Congratulations, you're pissing on the grave of a genius MC.

I'd probably vote for him if he came up separately, I have a special place in my heart for Return To The 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version
