Hip-Hop 101: Who you should be listening to.
Now, some of you might stereotype hip-hop music by saying that it's only about sex, drugs, money, etc. However, contrary to popular belief, it can and does go much, much deeper than that. I'm not trying to force my views on you, but this is a good heads up as to who you should be listening to and who you shouldn't be listening to (hence the title).
You Should be Listening To:
Any Individual Member of the Wu-Tang Clan -- Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, GZA, RZA, O.D.B. (RIP), Method Man, U-God, Masta Killa
Jedi Mind Tricks
Del tha Funky Homosapien
OutKast - And the individual members Andre 3000 & Big Boi
Mos Def (including Black Star)
Snoop Doggy Dogg
OutKast (including Andre 3K and Big Boi individually)
A Tribe Called Quest
LL Cool J (old stuff)
The Notorious B.I.G.
De La Soul
Drake (Thank Me Later was great. However, he barely made this part.
Who You Should Be Ignoring:
New Nelly (his old stuff is fine)
Soulja Boy and anyone associated with him
Sean Kingston (not really a rapper but whatever)
Dem Franchize Boyz
Who can either be really awful or really good depending on the track:
Three 6 Mafia
Hope I could help.
