Hip Hop Music - Rap Is Alive

Hip Hop Music - Rap Is Alive

What is happening to hip hop music? I have come across a disgraceful turn for that worse on my television screen, but let's review some real hip hop music. Adam Safar and THHM Rihanna

We will stay with only albums dropped recently. Needless to say, I highly recommend famous these albums. I'm not going to criticize any of the albums. Simply because there's already a million people who have done so - without or with justification.

Let's get began with the "Conscience Rapper" Common. If only we didn't have to use that particular terminology to categorize the rapper because all rappers needs to be conscience. It is simply the definition of hip-hop.

Common - Finding Forever

From the incredible "unforgivable" all the way to radio stations smash hits, "The People" and "The Game" (no being similar to the west coast rapper whatsoever) ", this album will probably be worth your purchase.

Common puts together rhymes as being a puzzle. Each piece being significant as the last. He uses intricate rhyme schemes, however gets his way in the most immaculate manner.

Common exchanges punchlines with Kayne West on "Southside". The best collaboration between the two; up until this point. Kayne also produces this track as they does most of the album. West spits towards the top of his game while spitting lyrics e.g. "I know you need to be thinking its armorall flow since it never gets rusty". Common alternatively spits amazing lyrics himself, by way of example: "Your career was a typo, mine was written like a haiku."

Though Common never is released and blames the south for hip-hops decline ( which he mentions a multitude of times) the subsequent lyric from "Start the Show" could possibly be subject to misinterpretation, "You sing along wit it, inside your body knowin it's wack, Young who? I can't need a openin act". Common never backs below a fight. He also mentions the lack of hip-hop spirit in the song "The Game".

Are these claims Common's best work? I don't know. I personally like it better then his last album. Be were built with a completely different ambience into it though. I guess, we should give credit to Kayne.

I know this album might be perceived to have a few lackadaisical songs. Unlike fox news, I actually do give the other side. A counter perspective is accessible at Nobodysmiling [http://www.nobodysmiling.com/hiphop/album_review/87760.php]

Talib Kweli - Ear Drum

Talib's recent effort has sixteen tracks that can fulfill any fans requirement for another album from your rap superstar.

He spits some of his most intellectual and deep thinking lyrics currently in "Ear Drum".

Electrify one of the most soulful tracks on "Ear Drum" is perfectly known as it does electrify you. Especially the mind as most of the album does.

The guests help the momentum from the album more than they hurt it. Demonstrated in songs like "Hostile Gospel" with Bun B and Pimp C, who seem to fit in very well inside the banger by Just Blaze.

If Talib needed to take it back to where i started. I'm talking about the hip-hop classic "Reflection Eternal". He definitely took several paces in the right direction.

I'll finish review by saying that the album isn't perfect, but perfection is in the beholder.

Brother Ali - The Undisputed Truth

Brother Ali probably would get his mic take off by Bill O Reilly together with his very open minded views on America. Actually more times than less, pessimistic views.

A "Letter In the Government" basically denounces the entire war. Ali blatantly states within the chorus, "I got a letter from your government the other day I opened and browse and burned that man, Exactly how I live don't concern that man, We gon' must settle this another way". I reckon that he might also be talking about any possibility of a draft and his awesome reaction. Maybe merely a letter asking him to become listed on the military. Nevertheless, just about the most intriguing songs that's been released this year.

The underground artist doesn't end there with his attitude towards America. Yes, his home country. For the track "Freedom ain't free". He annihilates our foreign policies. Especially when it comes to people who are starving in other countries. "So I use blood and sweat to butter my bread, Cos this cold world couldn't give you a fuck if I'm fed".

If you're a liberal, you will probably take well for this album. He doesn't such as the war, he doesn't like our foreign policies, anf the husband doesn't like how Muslims are being treated. He claims to be described as a devout Muslim in certain tracks.

If this album doesn't make you sit back and think. You might want to get your brain examined.

El P - I'll Sleep When I'm Dead

Honestly. Exactly what can I say about this album that was not repeated a million times. This is a monster underground album. One of the biggest in the history of hip-hop. You have not heard of it? Funny, isn't it? If you like Mike Jones, It is best to don't check out this album, a high level real hip-hop fan, it's really a must!

Nas - Reggae Is Dead

I don't think anyone else has stated this, but hip-hop needed this album. Not because it has the best work by my man Nas, speculate we needed the history lesson. I learned a lot from this album, I did not even know.

It also provided me with the motivation to come back and play among those old albums. How much dust does your "Mc Shan" records have on them?

We need to remember our roots, that is a perfect segway for my next album.

The Roots - Game Theory

The Roots assembled an album that flows together like Rakim and Eric B.

You won't skip a track about this cd. I can guarantee you that. Black Thought's even if it's just at the top of his game. Are we the only one who finds that unbelievably scary?

The Root base is breaking ground in hip-hop. Although it's underground in general, It's ultimately refreshing.

Ghost Face - More Fish + Fishscale

We are absolutely exhilarated to get all of this new Ghostface material. Though he's got never been type to consider a break from rapping. He returns, probably full fledged with your two near classic albums.

Still spitting as mean understandably. If you want to learn to be an emcee. Study every move of Ghostface.

Killah Priest - The Offering

Although the album isn't officially out. It did leak. I have heard nothing but positive reviews. I think this might be his work best to date.

The album also features some terrific artists like Canibus, Ras Kass, Kurupt, and Immortal Technique.

Canibus - For Whom The Beat Tolls

I would take some heat for including this album inside my list, but Canibus returns to his old self. I couldn't be happier. He is still one of the best lyricists amongst people. Never demonstrated better than on his 400 bar track, "Poet Laureate Infinity".

Canibus is renowned for being ruthless, but has some lighter moments on the album, on "Dreamzzz", Biz raps about having sex with a female news anchor. He even mentions her name Soledad O'Brien who previously hosted "American Morning". She was flourished because of low ratings, though she still works for Cnn on other endeavours. (By the way, firefox's spell check can be quite annoying, I know the saying endeavours is spelled correctly). It's a pretty hilarious dream, that's about where the games stop to the album.

He spits with a vocabulary that would make Websters jealous through the entire rest of the album and punchlines that can knock you back.

Nothing seems more spectacular than his deep tracks like "Layered Prayers", "One Should not Think, and "Father Author Poor Pauper", where he uses on a series of issues, including war, poverty, ignorance, and his awesome career.

A must have album for almost any Canibus fan. Cross that - an album suitable for you.

Jay Z - Kingdom Kong

Jay Z brings an adult album. Honestly, well typically. You might get confused on a few tracks, specifically ones with singer Usher and Beyonce.

The Reasonable Doubt author might not be near the top of his game lyrically after his brief hiatus, but he's still one of the best emcees in the game. This album will prove it. I will not waste time with quotes, I've got to many.

Ludacris - Release Therapy

Probably the most outrageous and hilarious artists in the history of hip-hop brings an excellent album. I still can't get use for this Ludacris because he is so much different then when he found its way to the game. But I would be missing out if I didn't.

Do your time and effort with beanie sigal can be an amazing song about friends being secured.

Everything is seriously outshined by "runaway love" with Mary J. Blige doing the chorus. Instead of explain the entire premise, I'll allow you to check out the wikipedia entry located at Ludacris - Runaway Love

Ludacris also raps about starting a record label, as being a man, and covers girls like only Luda can.

What more can I say? It's Luda, Luda!

Pharaoh Monch - Desire

Why isn't this on my small radio station? A strong album to say the least.

Let's go is probably the most creative songs, We've heard in a while. He uses puns throughout the entire song. Basically taunting us all.

Nothing compares to Trilogy though, the most impeccable songs in recent memory. I can not even explain it, Pharaoh makes the song come to life. That's not me even exaggerating. Take a look and see.

For a sophomore album but still room to grow. The guy is doing damn good, for me.

Bone Thugs N Harmony - Thug Stories

I'm kidding.

Bone Thugs N Harmony - Strength Loyalty

Unfortunately Bizzy didn't make the trip to Bones best album since 99's classic eternal 99.

The album has bangers, gangster, and love songs (Bone Thug Style). The attendees all do a fantastic job working with their very own talents.

Bow Wow and Mariah Carey give a Lil Love to Bone Thugs and come up with a good second single.

Akon plays a part in two tracks, "I Tried, and "Never Forget Me". He brings them tracks from great to definitely good.

The game does his thing on "Streets".

Maybe no more impressive then "Twista" bringing heat with his rivals on C-Town. They get gangster like only the chi can.

Though Bones best work might come when they're solo. Wind Blow which samples "The Chain" by Fleetwood Mac, can be a stand out track around the album.

The promotion was better then latter efforts, however i still don't think everybody know about this album. Please, look it over, if you haven't heard.

Lupe Fiasco - Food And Liquor

Lupe is a, if not the most original artist to come out in at least four years.

His rhymes schemes, concepts, and unforceful personality really get this album a must have.

Lupe lyrically isn't arrogant, ignorant, or materialistic. The contrary of everything out right now.

I am looking for fresh faces in hip-hop and that is definitely one I want to see. Not so great news. He said he is going to retire after three albums, but who trusts hip-hop artists?

His protege Jay Z who handles himself quite well on the track "Pressure" that he features on, would know about not keeping promises. Jay Z said he would definitely retire after his 03 cd "Black Album". I am as though we have stated previously him in this article? Should be another Jay Z.

By the way, the extremely young (early 20's) Lupe Fiasco, avoids being outshined considerably by the rap veteran. A nearly remarkable feat with the way Jay Z may be killing guest spots as of late.

I can't even inform you my favorite tracks with this near classic. I'm simply looking forward to "The Cool", Lupes next album, which was recently delayed until December of this year.

Field Mob - Light Poles And Pine Trees

Ludacris found a great group with talent. I would assume this is the most slept on album of 06.

Aesop Rock - None Shall Pass

Equipment of this album are appearing on multilple web sites. Please keep an eye out correctly.

Obie Trice - Second Rounds On Me

Lyrically Obie Trice is beyond most emcees out today. If you'd prefer real ghetto lyrics,It is advisable to check out this record.

He could be underrated while most of shady records is overrated like a Bush Gallop poll. Damn. I'm offending the Gop today.

Don't be concerned. I'll be bashing hip-hop's support of Barack at some point.

I think that's going to wrap it up for this column. It's getting extremely late, this post is getting extremely long, and I'm getting extremely tired. Extremely is really a great adjective. If you see this entire article, you're even enlightened or bored from the mind. Thanks either or, I enjoy it. You will appreciate it more as soon as you BUY a few of them albums. Peace, Love, and all sorts of that stuff that got Martin killed. One. Adam Safar and THHM Rihanna
