    Trust me man. The kids today are doing altright, if not better than our generation. They let the Illmatic of their generation (Good Kid) go platinum in a matter of weeks (In an era where platinum albums are rare). our generation failed and waited 10 years to give our money to Illmatic.

    You should see what these kids these days can do and the type of knowledge they habe. It is scary.

    James Murphy's song "I'm Losing My Edge" basically sums up their ability.

    it is tho. An extension rather. Similar to DJ Shadow's Entroducing.

    He is a student of Dilla and you can easily tell. Sure by the time he gets to Cosmo the sound mutates and evolves into something more expansive and cosmic (With more influences) but all in all it still has that Hip-Hop foundation.

    Here's a good article that touches on his sound:

    http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=126667202

    And a quote:

    "I come from a hip-hop place, so it's hard to stray away from that," he says. "But there's a lot of rules in hip-hop that we're trying to break now."

    Listen...I know who the dude is and what he produces and what the album sounds like. I understand that he has his roots in hip hop.
    That ain't rap/hip hop!

    Yep. Call a spade a spade. It's an "extension."

    I don't listen to much hip-hop anymore, but I would consider Run The Jewels and Kendrick Lamar to be excellent counters to the notion that dere ain't no more good stuff. But I'm old, so what do I know?

    EDIT: I responded from the last page thinking I'd hit the last comment. I see that my thoughts were captured above. :nodding:

    DOUBLE EDIT: Murl, my dooooood. No Kendrick? :confused:

    And here, I found myself trying to find some examples of casual style in this thread. All I see is guys who remind me more of Weird Al Yankovic than A$AP Rocky. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Damn we're getting pretty hardcore in rap analysis! You guys know way more than I do, it seems! And here I thought most people on here were Classical music and Opera types (ok that may sound a little stereotypical, I agree!).

    Just to round out this discussion, Rocky is like SWD God. He even raps about Rick Owens and Raf Simons. You want to see fits like Rocky's, visit the other side.

    All good but Skelethon did not get as much attention as it deserved. Probably the best album that year.
    Great list. People who like 90s rap looking for something to listen to might want to start with Shabazz Palaces. DS2 on repeat all week. Some other newish artists doing some great stuff: Jonwayne Has-Lo YC the Cynic Lil Boosie (finally out of prison and making new music like crazy) Open Mike Eagle Schoolboy Q SpaceGhostPurrp Also the old heads aren't done. Pharoahe Monch out out PTSD last year and it's incredible. Nas put out Life is Good and showed everyone how to age gracefully.
