    Bringing the Funk with the Hip Hop Soul

    Discussion started by Sickboy - Aug 7, 2003

    Soul is the only way to go. I'm getting kinda tired of the abstract underground artsy hip hop that conjours up no funk for the soul. I mean its good and all but I like my hip hop the way it should be. Shit that makes you dance and bob your head like tomorrow aint comin. The classics is what I liek to stick too. My list of favorites.

    The Roots
    Mos Def
    Talib Kweli (Blackstar)
    Black Eyed Peas
    Jurassic 5
    Dilated Peoples
    Del the Funky Homosapien
    Organized Konfusion
    Pharoah Monch
    Fugees
    Kos ( new but very cool)
    Marley Marl
    Common
    Krs One
    Most of Wutang

    I know theres ton I'm leaving out by accident. What's some of your fav's.

    I love most of the artists you just mentioned. Im also tired of the underground "art fag abstract" stuff. i hate the shows. Its just a bunch of white guys standing around in a hot room with hoodies trying to look hard.

    oh, and scrabble in a situation like that, the best thing to do is laugh and ignore those that act like that, and enjoy the show. Because, to be honest with you there is some really good independent hip hop out there..
