I would like some rap/hip hop recommendations.

I don't care about lyrics. I can't stress that enough; I don't care about the rhymes, and I'd prefer that any and all rappers avoid "serious" topics. I listen to vocals as an instrument.

I mostly just care about having quality beats. If you're curious, I classify eurotrash techno bleep-bloop crap as ****.

Anyways, artists I like: Dre Dog, MC Solaar, Nujabes, Eazy-E, etc.

Artists I ****ing hate: Aesop Rock, Death Grips, Dizzy Rascal, etc.

No, that doesn't bother me at all. Just hilarious who you placed him alongside given your previous criteria for the Hip Hop music you like.

Oh it kills me to see Aesop Rock in the ****ing hate pile.

But I'm gonna make recommendations for you anyway.

Microphone Mike started in the early 90s and alongside with friends started the Freestyle Fellowship, putting out the landmark album To Whom It May Concern. This is just the tip of the iceberg on his career, but he was born to jazz musicians and grew up listening to his parents and their peers playing. At a young age he began vocally freestyling along with his parents improvisational jazz. He uses his voice like a jazz instrument in most of his work, and that's why I think you'll like him. He no longer goes by Microphone Mike. He changed to Mikah 9 before '92. And somewhere along the line... probably around the end of the 90s early 00's, he changed the spelling of his name again to Myka 9 and that's where he's been since. You can find his solo albums under Mikah 9 and Myka 9, you can find group works with Freestyle Fellowship, Haiku D'etat, and Magic Heart Genies, and Project Blowed.

I recommend grabbing Mikah 9's Timetable first, then maybe some Freestyle Fellowship (they have 4 albums altogether, one being released last year) or Haiku D'etat, then some of the Myka 9 albums like 1969, Mykology, etc.

Here's a simple song, almost boring, but it shows what I mean by using his voice as a instrument. He makes the track fly on a very simple unchanging beat. Not the best example but one of the first songs I could think of. And besides, this is from ... '91 I think, so it's very advanced for its time.



I really love this one, but on the album it's got 10 minutes of silence at the end of the track so I don't get to share it on turntable/mumu much:



And here's something recent, a freestyle for G4TV he did back in '05



And here's one of his most recent release from '11

Thank you, Mr. Dood. That is amazing.

Eh? I really don't understand the love for Aesop Rock or Death Grips. I remember being stuck in a car with a girl for about two hours, who introduced Aesop Rock with, "....if you care about beats, you'll like this guy, he's great!" And it was total misery. The only Death Grips song I've bothered with had worthless Eurotrash bleep-bloop techno for a "beat".... although he does get points for looking like a bum.
