Bringing the Funk with the Hip Hop Soul

Recommended Posts

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.

And before a hundred little Atmosphere ass kissing white kids come on here to argue that they have soul too. They did before Spawn stopped rhymin with Slug. Spawn Ruled Overcast. After Over cast Atmosphere lost it.

So Much Soul

Shortkut & Vinroc

 

 

The dynamic duo of Shortkut and Vinroc bring you the ultimate soul mixtape. Selecting a smooth blend of your favorite soul selections. Track for track, Vinroc and Shortkut bring it from the classics to new joints and then back again. While these two super DJ's throw down for the ladies on So Much Soul, the listeners find themselves thinking of this as the smoothest soul tape. Rocking rare joints from Roy Ayers ("Daylight") into K-Ci and Jo-Jo ("Freakin' You" Remix w/ Raekwon). Also included are head nodders from soulstresses Mary J. Blige and Erykah Badu. Bangin hip-hop beats blended with soul.

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..

I do laugh, and i try not to look around me because its pretty depressing. I get "eastside boys type rowdy" (as my friends call it) when im at a show so its easy to ignore everyone else around me.

it doesn't depress me, because I realize that one day these kids will either grow out of it, and realize their stupidity, or end up dead or in prison.

There is good independent hip hop.....I wasn't associating artsy abstract with being the only independent hip hop. Most of what I listed besides from the fact that most of those those groups are well known are still independent in the sense of the feeling and skill they produce. Oh and I forgot to mention Blackalicious and Gangstar.
