And Nas is top 2 in my mind, still. But it still bothers me.
I agree. Nas on some of his albums has some terrible beats. Illmatic and Stillmatic are pretty good though. Gods Son was ok but a few of those beats were recycled.

So many of my favorite artists have collaborated once and have never gotten back together for a second album, that's pretty irritating.


Hmm. It's hard for me to find anything wrong with Why?, but sometimes Yoni Wolf relies too much on imagery and metaphors in his lyrics to pull a song together, I think he'd be a great storyteller but you don't get to see that much in his music.

Rappers who talk about how good they are or how much mainstream sucks. Yeah, both are usually true its just old hearing the same stuff in songs all the time. A major violator of this that I like is Jedi Mind Tricks.

I don't find Aesop Rocks lyrics to be overly cryptic, although his delivery is pretty fast and if you don't keep up you can miss something. I like it like that though, because when I listen to his stuff, I'm always discovering something new in his lyrics and making connections I hadn't made previously.
I like music that has replay value beyond your typical listenable qualities.

I concur...But everyone seems to allways forget about his "It was Written" album,his best album imo.

Snoop Dogg - His lyrics are basically everything I hate about modern mainstream rap, but I love Doggystyle. He has an amazing flow and the whole thing sounds pretty fun and laid back throughout.

The way Dead Prez (even though I really like their music, and a lot of that has to do with the political lyrics) say some ignorant borderline racist crap.

I agree with you, but I've gotta say the whole 'kill whitey' vibe doesn't really bother me.

It bothered me i have to admit, maybe i could cope with some preaching for a few songs but this is throughout the entire album and generalises stupidly.

Which is a shame because Hip-Hop is a monster of a tune.
