New artist for rap fans to check out

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
This is a former Army buddy of mine, going by "The International Rap Superstar Sean Stylz." I'm not into hip hop or rap, but I do like this album better than most of what you hear shaking silly cars that cost less than their soundsystem. Sean's very intelligent and very concerned about world affairs, and it comes across in his lyrics.

Buehller? That bad, huh?

Honestly... his voice isn't doing it for me. A little monotone, too mellow without being cool-as-shit, Snoop-Dogg mellow. Which is too bad, because there's not enough intelligent politically-charged hip hop around.

If you haven't heard of Immortal Technique before, you definitely need to check him out.

Sorry, but if it is rap/hiphop I just CAN'T listen to it unless it involves Beans of Antipop! I'm a snob like that

No reason to pick on rappers when the likes of Ashlee Simpson and her kind are termed "artists", too.

It's not snobbery. It's just stupid. Just like almost any other genre, some of it is incredible; a lot of it isn't.

Who is Ashlee Simpson? I pick on rappers because that's what I've actually heard. Anyway, I don't buy that "some of it is brilliant" crap. No, I'll go ahead and use a broad stroke here. Rap sucks, as well as country. Oh yeah, that bleep bleep techno shit sucks too.

Then why exactly are you participating in this thread? Go put on a Pretenders CD and piss off.

Sauce, thanks for the input. I'll pass it on.

VM, I just listened to the featured audio on his website. I'm definitely feeling it. If I wanted to buy one of his albums, which one is best to start with?

Tom, sorry man. Not trying to criticize, just my initial reaction. Was he really court martialed?

I actually had to copy the link location and look at the file name to figure out what that was, ATM. I was positive that was a leprechaun.
