^Thank f*ck, I thought hip hop was even less popular than Russell Brand on here(!)
I'm as much a nerd of retro gaming as I am of 'true skool' (1992-1996) hip hop and 70s jazz and funk fusion! Great hip hop is amazing, and there's so much of it, even since my preferred era of it!!! (Trouble is, you can't ever convince people who say "It's not rap music, it's crap music"
who think (A.) they were the first person on Earth to ever say that, (B.) it was an original, comic idea they had, they either like Genesis, The Jam/Paul Weller, Oasis, Marillion, Bruce Springsteen, and/or finally Elvis Presley
, 'The King', you're truly embarking on a battle that is stalemate at best, epic loss at worst.)
People like Big L, Wu-Tang, Redman, Gang Starr/DJ Premier, Ice Cube, ODB, A Tribe Called Quest, Ghostface, Scarface, Ugly Duckling, Kool Keith, Canibus, etc. etc., there're so many, their output is epic
. Rap is f*cking excellent and has such a depth of retro gems to dig deep for!
