Update 19

Today's MC's: Common, Talib Kweli, KRS-One, White Shadow, Rass Kass, Joell Ortiz, Kool G Rap

I actually found this track on accident on youtube when searching for Kool G Rap, KRS-One, Rass Kass and Kool G Rap on one track just had to be good, and I was right if you ask me!
White Shadow feat. KRS-One, Ras Kass, Joell Ortiz & Kool G Rap - Underground

Common, the one I wanted to posted about today. I posted something about him before. In my opinion, Common is really a MC who raps about what he thinks/feels, I'd categorize him as Conscious hip-hop.
Common - I Used To Love H.E.R
This is one of my favorites by Common, the storytelling etc. is just perfect
Common - Sum Shit I Wrote
Common - Ressurection

Now a bit from Talib Kweli. I already wrote about him being in Blackstar with Mos Def. Here are some nice tracks by him:
Talib Kweli - Joy Ft Mos Def - Quality
Talib Kweli - Get By
Not many remixes manage to almost outrise the original in quality, but this one certainly did!
Talib Kweli - Get By (Remix) Ft. Mos Def, Jay-Z, Kanye West, & Busta Rhymes
To be honest, I'm not even a big fan of Kanye and late years Jay-Z but on this track they are spitting pure gold lines!

  2. Great posts! Listening to Common right now...

  3. Isn't White Shadow a name of a pub in Seattle?
    Anyway I listened to Talib before and i like him.

  4. I remember KRS-One from his cameo in Radio Song by REM!

  5. Solid blog, I really like the layout and background

    This of course is strictly personal, but I've got the feeling Kanye and Jay-Z are there for the money, Kanye using ALOT of autotune (which I don't consider hip-hop) and Jay-Z going all with that commercial music. I personally just don't like it. For me they are too mainstream/hip-pop, just not my thing.

    Jay-Z used to be great tho, Reasonable Doubt was a great album, Kanye put out some ill tracks too but just lately they've too much on that mainstream for me

  7. sum shit i wrote = great jam, thanks first time i heard that one

  8. @stibbz
    totally agree with you there, not making a track because they like it but because they think it will sell...

  9. @Bradp13
    Thanks for the compliment! I was actually thinking of starting new messages with the main artists as title so it would be easier to see what's in the post and what's been in posts.
