    There's a horribly titled hip hop thread already, for anyone interested.

    http://www.styleforum.net/t/212029/all-things-hippity-and-hoppity/0_10



    I think the "problem" is that mainstream hip hop in the 90's was stuff like Tribe, Public Enemy, Common, De La Soul, Biggie, Pax etc., where now it's trap rap and pop music with rap over it.

    If NWA had come out today, no-one would have given a fuck, as its like everything else.

    I love N Hoolywood but their sizing is a bit weird (probably because I'm tall and white). Their knits are great especially.

    Couldn't disagree with this more and my point still stands because I'm talking about the 80s.

    Just because these clowns are wearing margiela and rick means absolutely nothing.

    Vince had one of the best albums of 2015, rap or otherwise

    nah I like Grimes, but US rap in general is in a real good place right now.

    I love Del, too. Catch a Bad One is one my of favorites. He's Ice Cube's cousin (most of his fans already know this).

    I lost about 10,000 songs of rare/older shit when my laptop got burgled awhile back. Slowly reupping so I appreciate all the name drops.

    UK rap has always been great, some of my favorites ever are British (Jehst, Task Force, Klashnekoff, Lowkey, Kyza, Usmaan, YunGun, wordsmith blah blah) but I never really got into grime.
    I have 5 suitcases of rap CDs and vinyl sitting in my basement that I need to deal with. Every time my parents come and visit from Australia they bring a suitcase over. I have no idea what's even there but there are some rarities.
    Diniro, I like your Wu coffee table.

    I saw a preview on SF talking about UK rap and came to post that last video

    Instead I'll post this one



    Some of her bars are too generic/cliche/try hard but in general some real gems in her stuff


    I been listening to a lot of Asian rap. Keith Ape and Kohh. I also really like this dude named Black Nut. Some really clever puns even though his whole projected image is brokeass pervert beta male

    I saw Hieroglyphics with Del and Casual in Milwaukee about a million years ago (maybe 1999?)...still one of my favorite shows I've been to.

    "93 to Infinity" and "I Wish My Brother George Was Here" are still so great. Oh, and Casual's "Fear Itself". Wow.

    Man, I love Grime but also tend to think it's pretty terrible/underdeveloped at the same time. Most artists' rhyme schemes tend to be too straightforward, and the content really generic. Still a lot of fun though.
