    We hardly ever get any here. Last one I gave a shit about was about 3 different soulja boy clones and Ugod as the final act.

    Not wanting to sound condescending but can anyone recommend some reasonably mature and thought-out rap artists (in terms of lyrics)? I like Eminem's Space Bound and Love the Way You Lie, so stuff like that I guess. I don't like the "yo nigger i'm whack and i have a big dick" shit that a lot of rap seems to be.

    Vinnie Paz and Jedi Mind Tricks, personal favourites.

    You're condescending.

    According to those records, you like hip-hop love songs. Listen to some Atmosphere, Macklemore, and Drake.

    Please don't critique something you know little about when you ask for suggestions next time. It is condescending and passive-aggressive. I fear the others (read: TH89) won't be so easy on you as I am. Also "yo nigger i'm whack and i have a big dick" seems like a really interesting lyric, I'd love to listen to that from an actual rapper and song.

    Edited:

    Vinnie Paz and Jedi Mind Tricks, personal favourites.
    If this a joke or something it's pretty good. Vinnie Paz called Kanye West a "fag rapper", so by extension he probably hates most mainstream rappers in touch with their sensitive feelings. Definitely the polar opposite of Eminem.

    I dunno, Sean P always struck me as the battle rapcat that never takes it too seriously. His punchlines are just downright silly sometimes haha

    Vinnie Paz is an idiot. He's a homophobic, bigoted conspiracy theorist who raps about cutting people up with chainsaws. It's tough to get less introspective than that.

    Yo, it's pretty sketch for you to use that word esp. when you're "imitating" an imaginary black guy just fyi

    Anyway my rec is Shabazz Palaces and Das Racist:


    Easily the smartest two rap groups I know

    Vinnie Paz is weird cause 95% of the time he just raps about killing shit, and then occasionally he tries to be socially conscious, which just sounds out of place more than anything.

    Agreed, but it becomes a lot less tolerable when the rapper in question is trying to act like some enlightened purveyor of social wisdom and truth.

    "The government's controlling you man! We gotta create a world where people are free! Except bitches and faggots!"

    I'm not a huge fan of Pharrell the rapper. I definitely like Pharrell the producer. HUGE fan of Pharrell the person. Check out his Nardwuar interview:

    I agree that his raps aren't anything that stellar, but he has a great singing voice in my opinion, and his producing is top notch. One of the best, if not the best out there.

    And he also seems like a very genuine person, very likable, also -- that interview is amazing. It also helps that Nardwuar is fucking amazing.

    He and Chad Hugo produced this beat... sick.

    Great singing here.

    The whole BCC was kind of on a similar vibe to Black Moon in the early days

    Heltah Skeltah:

    Smif N Wessun:

    O.G.C.

    For more loud aggro shit like Onyx I would say DMX (obv) and...

    Nine

    M.O.P.
