    was grand buffet with sole? i just heard about a show in my area with those two acts on the bill.. ive been informed by a hip hop hunk that grand buffet is good.

    got the new sole album.. quite fresh.

    also buck 65 vertex.. quite a gem. a stronger release for me then man overboard.

    there have been a few of these back packer threads but im not going to stop you.

    heres my list..
    my only suggestion is that if youre on kazaa or some other p2p to at least buy an album from these guys.

    slug (sad clown bad dub 2. and 3)
    infecticons (mike ladd)
    freestyle fellowship
    aceyalone (book of human language)
    abstract rude (codename scorpian two worthwhile tracks. mike tyson and pillah fulla skrillah)
    older kool g rap
    anything by dj quik.. (this guy is a genius)
    dose one
    jel (instrumental album 10 seconds)
    josh martinez
    mac lethal (if you like fucked up cage/necro/eminem shit)
    necro(i need drugs)

    i could go on but is it necessary i feel like a broken record.

    Al green! No sole was not there, they were rockin with Passage and a local act called Who Cares. If you ever get the oppurtunity to see Grand Buffet live, do that shit, by far the best live show Ive seen from a hip hop act. They incorporate comedy, acting, politics, great crowd participation, and to top it all off....dope beats and rhymes!!! Youll see these muther fuckers and be like, who the fuck are these crazy lookin white dudes???? and then BAMN!!! its all over from there.......
    I agree with most of your selections, have a few, heard a few, and havent heard some. Anyway, check out thecawz.com awesome group...and they incorporate alot about graffiti. (shameless plug) anyway, thanks for the info, ill check some of that shit out! oh yeah, aesop is a genius. peace

    dj spinna. jigmastas.. this shit has amazing production
    people under the stairs
    ugly duckling
    the streets... some dub style uk trendy shit that i like.
    roots manuva
    Kardinal offishal (belly dancing..)
    apathy... ehh i dont really like this guy alot but his freestyles are on point.

    FRESH MODE EP is off the chains. young einstein makes some dope ass beats, and his dookie rope cant be fucked with.

    good mcs, good beats. good vibes to their songs...
