Big3 isn't a mod.
Yea his lazy drawl is one of the best for sure, and what you're saying does make since because his best stuff clearly was with Dr. Dre. They're a good team, because Dre's not the greatest rapper but is an amazing producer. It's easy to see that on The Chronic where the stuff without Snoop Dogg suffers slightly in comparison to stuff with him.

And I didn't think Big3 was afraid of you so much as respects your opinions more than mine since he's known you for longer. I've seen that a lot on these forums, certain members who've been here a while or established themselves usually won't get their comments picked apart. Though what do I know, maybe it's just because they have more music knowledge than me...

Yeah, I definitely agree with that. I think Dre's rapping works fine in small doses but I wouldn't want to listen to an entire album of him all by himself, that's for sure.

No. I'm just as likely to rip apart his posts as yours, but as I said - I addressed you both. Maybe Mr. Zoon was smart enough to ignore me.

You're right though, the new get hazed differently than the old do. I think no one has it any better though.

"keep their heads ringin'" was pretty great I thought.

people saying that modern Hip-Hop is bad obviously haven't heard Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty by Big Boi, it's like mindblowingly good.

I'm not saying there's no good hip-hop lately, I'm just saying I haven't heard any new artists who are good. Big Boi is very, very far from being a new artist.

Yeah, I know. I didn't read the new artists part. I see what you mean, the newest artist I actually like is CunninLynguists and they formed in 2000.

there are tons of great rappers in the 2000's, the trouble is finding them.

That sounds pretty good. It's still five years old though. It's weird, I feel like it's very hard to find good 00s hip-hop that's less than five years old.

I haven't listened to hip-hop seriously since 1997 (about the same time I quit listening to "metal")

that being said, the REAL hip-hop era for me was 1988-1996, from the time N.W.A.'s Straight Outta Compton hit the streets until Dre left Death Row.

Since then, you've had Eminem and Mickey Avalon and not much else.
