Can you tell me a few names? I wanna check some of them out.


I could go all day, just a couple guys that have been around a while like Brother Ali, Slug, Aesop Rock, Apathy, John Conner, Talib Kweli, Mos Def, Cunnin Lynguist, Nipsey Hussle, Pharaohe Monch (except he's gotten pretty big).

I know what you're saying, but the artists that guy listed are some people to get really excited about. Joey Bada$$ and Ab-Soul come to mind. I grew up listening to Pac, NWA, Nas, Old Jay Z, and Biggie. But these new guys up and coming are really fuging good.


There is no doubt that he listed talented people who are all very good, I just don't think you can touch the era of the people you listed. It's not even a debate IMO.

Love poetry actually. Well, good poetry. You know, story telling, imagery, thoughtful insight.

People walking on stage and talking about themselves? Not interested.

Just google Brother Ali....

Clicked on whatever song came up first on lyrics link...

got this...

Attack fame with cerebral cortex in your brains
So my effects will remain
Long after the trends change
Son I'll bend your name
Rearrange your molecules
Amongst hip hop dudes, Brother Ali be droppin' jewels
Impossible to fool I'm like Picasso with the tool


Took him almost to the end of one breath to talk about himself.

Pure poetry. He is a regular TS Elliot

What about his song Forrest Whittaker where all he does is talk about how ugly he is but that God made him and he loves himself no matter what?

Such a terrible message....

But yea this is why I listen to more actual music than hip hop, but there's a lot of stuff out there with great messages and great stories, with a catchy beat that makes girls grind up on you.

John Conner, Talib Kweli, Mos Def, and Nipsey Hussle I'm a huge fan of. Well check into some of those other guys.

If you want true poetry, simply listen to Tchaikovsky or Rachmaninoff or Bach or Beethoven. If you want unearned stylized rhythmic egocentric expression then I suppose rap is for you.
