    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.

    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. [​IMG] 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. [​IMG] I was positive that was a leprechaun.

    Glad you liked him! His rhymes are insane, and he pairs them with great beats. His two albums are Revolutionary Vol. 1 and Vol. 2. While both are good, my favorite is definitely Vol. 2. Be sure to check out the following tracks on Vol 2: - 'The 4th Branch', where he talks about this secret branch of the government which controls what 99% of americans know, and influences everything we do, and is turning us into mindless drones. He is, of course, talking about the media. - 'The Cause of Death', where he explains the current state of affairs concerning America is our own fault. - 'Peruvian Cocaine', probably my favorite track, has a different underground rapper rap the part of each of the individuals involved in the coke trade, from the farm slave to the distributor to the politician to the DEA officer. Really shows how corrupt our image of the war on drugs is.

    I find IT to be too preachy and angry without focus. I did like "Freedom of Speech".

    If you like IT, you might like Dead Prez.

    No, nothing like it. He was released honorably, bronze star and two arcoms, etc etc. He spent most of his combat tour working with the U of Baghdad and environs. Developed very strong opinions about what was and was not working, but couldn't publicly criticize until he got out.

    Curious scnupe--beats? Lyrics? Voice? Or just too far gone to have any hope [​IMG] The beats aren't his, he pulled them from a guy who doesn't do anything else. I already convinced him to lay down his own for the next album.
