How rock hard do you get when you get to hate on Gucci? I'm pretty sure the article said he talks to these guys every day to work on putting these mixtapes together. If you listened to the songs it's pretty obvious they aren't just taking random verses and putting them together on the same song.

you might have a point if it was just me but dudes who actually liked him back when he was "good" saying his poo poo's lame now. i mean i don't even really talk about him except every 5th mixtape of his (so about once every couple days) when some dudes who aren't trying to turn dude into a meme actually talk about him.

i mean i've definitely liked some subpar poo poo before too, don't know why some people get so bent out of poo poo for calling wack poo poo wack.

that's wild, i saw he had danny brown (and gorgeous children!?!) on his next album so was wondering what it would sound like. to my untrained ear that could almost pass for a grime track too which is kinda cool.

man it's worse than that. he was supposed to have a winter album for LAST YEAR, then the early this year/summer stuff. i didn't like the first song of his i heard, but suwop serengeti grew on me a lot even though there was some questionable stuff and it kept cutting off beats i liked way too early.
and i really hate poo poo like that. like i remember when i first got a piece of strange and i was pissed the best thing on the whole album was like a 20 second snippet at the front of one of the songs. like dude you have something good let it go someplace don't cut it off smh

Last song on #SWOUP ends way too early/abruptly also (Studio Time). One of my fave beats on the album (full of good beats). This is the most common complaint I've heard from fans of SMT.

It's the morning after seeing Juicy J live, and I don't know why I expected the crowdgoers at a rap show in Connecticut to be anything less than a bunch of Caucasian recent high school graduates. Juicy pretty much stuck to his club bangers because he assumed that that's what everyone wanted to hear, so I didn't get to yell along to No Love or Gun Plus a Mask or Wax. Still a fun time, but not something I'll do again in the land of the bourgeoisie.

On a slightly different topic, this is just out of morbid curiosity since I almost exclusively listen to hip-hop about money, women, drugs, and guns, but are any of the socially conscious rappers out there worth loving with? The only one I know about is Immortal Technique but he's only interesting if you're one of those people who thinks there's such thing as "real hip-hop" that is being covered up by Lil Wayne's very existence, and I only know about him because college professors like playing his stuff to their classes to teach about gentrification, which is about the worst thing you could tell me to recommend him to me as a rapper. I guess if you think Rage Against the Machine counts as hip-hop, they technically count, but the closest I get to socially conscious hip-hop is when a rapper tells me why he's shooting police as opposed to just telling me that he's shooting police.

Akala for sure (in particular his latest album). You could (possibly) call Wrekonize's solo album that as well (though it is more introspective than outro), as well as Sabac Red and Revolution of the Mind.

For American political rap (though this is more violent left-wing rap) look into the two East Coast Avengers albums as well.

EDIT: here are a few samples of what I mentioned above:

It really depends on what you consider socially conscious. Like I mention before, to a lot of people that really just means poo poo that's kinda jazzy you can play in a coffee shop or something. A lot of "hard" gangsta rap actually as a very socially aware undercurrent, it's just certain elements don't care about that poo poo because it's not relevant to them/trendy enough to be taken that way.

But yeah there's a lot of dudes who are good. I'd say in general they're gonna typically be better rappers than your average gangsta dude just because you have to rely less on tropes and personality than your actual lyrics and whatnot.

But I'd recommend Mos Def, Common up to Be (and skip electric circus, can't remember if that's before Be but it's poo poo), Sage Francis, Mr. Lif, Busdriver, Open Mike Eagle, Milo (really all of Hellfyre Club), GDP, billy woods and if you don't mind older stuff pretty much all of the Native Tongues groups & KMD. That's a fair mix of stuff to at least get started with.

I was merely clarifying that while I appeared to be sprinkling iodized salt down into the thread, that was not my intention at first. The homie quantum phallus came through with a lackluster rebuttal, and I addressed that accordingly. Do not attempt to front, honkey. My post effectively served to further clarify any misconceptions before things got really twisted up.

I appreciate the low key sneak disses, even though yalls "nomentclature" reads like a 2009 rap thread. At least its starting to feel like a rap thread, despite all the cornballery in question.
