    Rap & Hip Hop

    Okay, I personally don't like these two genres, but hey, you gotta serve the masses and it seems 96% of the high school loves Hip Hop and Rap. So since i don't like it, I have no idea what kind of artists "sing" this. This is mostly for dances so it has to be something with a nice beat or whatever that you can dance to.

    Please list Artist and Song names in this format:
    Artist - "Song Name"


    Thanks all.

    J-Kwon - "Tipsy"

    Best beat I have heard in a long damn time. I don't even like rap/hip-hop but I can't get enough of this song.

    Missy Eliot or the song?

    Thats all I have to add to this thread. I don't like hip hop/r&b/rap/whatever you kids are calling it these days.

    Dizze Rascal - Fix up, look sharp.
    Dizze Rascal - Jus´ a rascal.

    It´s not really hiphop. Close enough though... 2step/garage. Those are his two hits.

    I also didn't use to like rap and hip hop but I've been looking through some of it cause I like to expand in music and keep an open ear and try to find something I like in every catagory.

    I love ICP however, and most consider them Hip hop, they deserve their own catagory cause they are hardcore Hip hop (also include side projects by their record label. Dark Lotus, Twizzted ect.

    Anyways here a list of a few I actually like (cringe)
    Chingy
    Sir mix a lot
    Too Short
    Snopp Dogg
    Some eminem stuff is ok
    Outkast has some cool beats.

    That's pretty much it for me lol
    and Missy Elliot sucks @$$ lol

    Tupac is crap imho, if he wouldn't have died he wouldn't be half as popular as he is. bet you didn't even listen to his music before he died.

    Snoop > Tupac

    oh ok, so he does have a few good songs, he's not total crap, but still he's totally not the best.

    There is really no best, in my opinion. When I listened to rap during the 90's, when there was that whole East Coast vs. West Coast thing, I liked the music Tupac and Notorious B.I.G. were making.

    People who say "Tupac is the best" are probably the ones that ran out to buy his CD AFTER HE WAS KILLED. You have no idea how much me and my friends hated that. I remember a certain time, when were sitting out in the quad and some short white kid walked up to my small clique. He said something like, "Did you guys hear Tupac died?" and he had the CD case in his hands and had a CD player. After a few seconds of silence and shared looks among us, I said,"Well, yeah. It's been on the news and radio a lot."

    "I still can't believe he died."

    I looked him over, noticing the CD case and the player he was so blatantly flaunting. I did my patented eyebrow raise, and asked in disbelief, "You never used to like Tupac. F*** dude you never even used to listen to rap. What...?" I was at a loss of words.

    The whole next week, Tupac t-shirts and conformist followers followed. As much as people liked me, I hated their conformists views. That being said, Tupac is not the greatest rapper.

    Mobb Deep - Hey Love
    112 - Peaches and Cream
    112 - Only You
    Puff Daddy and Mase - Mo Money Mo Problems
    Puff Daddy and Mase - Been Around the World
    Notorious BIG - One More Chance
    Notorious BIG - Juicy (great lyrics :) )
    E-40 w/ Nate Dogg - Nah Nah

    And for you to truly appreciate good rapping, the following:
    Mos Def - Oh No
    De La Soul - Ooh Ooh

    Ok and that's all I can really think of. None of these are stupid hardcore rap songs, but if you have diehard rap conformists, they should recognize some of these songs. Those little bastards.

    Heavy beat rap:

    Jay-Z - Parkinglot Pimpin'
    Obie Trice - Adrenaline Rush
    Xzibit - X
    DMX - Party Up
    Jurassic 5 - What's Golden?
    Wu-Tang Clan - Pinky Ring

    ...and almost anything from the Dr. Dre album 2001, for example:

    Dr. Dre - Ackrite
    Dr. Dre feat. Snoop Dogg - The Next Episode



    If you like any of that stuff let me know, and I'll see if I can find something similar.


    Edit: Oh how can I forget. The remix version of B**ch Please that's on the Eminem - Marshall Mathers Album is excellent.
