Aesop Rock and El-P (maybe somewhere down the line since we just did RTJ) would both do well. Death Grips should at least be an entertaining thread. Think Danny Brown could just about carry one and get a good score. NWA/Dr. Dre? Gang Starr? Madlib might carry one after his latest album comes out?
Oh man Death Grips would be a riot
Also +1 for Danny Brown, think he’s established enough to get an entry now and his last album was fantastic
Oh, again not strictly hip hop, but Why? (And associated acts like cLOUDDEAD etc) could be interesting
HGATR: the neptunes + associated acts megathread
None would go higher than Beasties but NWA, Snoop Doggy Dogg, Dr Dre and Eminem would be all interesting.
Eminem has been done, he didn’t do so well
Have been thinking about doing a NERD/Neptunes thread tbf.
Both on the list as separate entities.
The N.W.A. thread will just be me yelling about Eazy-E for the whole thing.
Sounds good might do it tomorrow now.
is cube on the list separately too or would he be included in the nwa thread
pretty damn good to be relevant more than 20 years
Included with NWA I reckon.
Would you include Dr Dre in the NWA one too? Oh - sorry separate. Just saw.
Think Dre is mainstream enough for his own thread as opposed to the others who might struggle to get to 50 votes.
those icons of hip hop
You like what you like, of course. But It bums me out that people abandoned a genre that has more to offer than one branch of its tree. Street rap isn’t for everyone but there’s so many other avenues you could go down. And the term mumble rap should be banned from the internet .
Do do do-do do-doo
