I have this on tape. Golden.



Anybody have any favourite old hip hop and rap and stuff? I enjoy some in moderation.

Me either.  I still say they just dropped the C of the name of rap.

I love d-boy! I only have his compilation album on cd. Still hoping to find the other two studio albums. I'm not a big fan of the new hip-hop stuff, however all those old-school christian hip hop!! I should have bought those when they were still easy to find. Some of those old SFC, Dynamic Twins, D-boy cd's are going for $30,- + nowadays.

I prefer newer hip hop to older stuff. LeCrae, Flame, Trip Lee, Andy Mineo... they can tell such a story in so short a time.

I like some hip hop. It partly depends on what kind of mood I'm in. This is my current favorite in the genre. which I've heard on Air1 quite a bit lately.

"Courage" by Social Club Misfits featuring Tree Giants



Social Club Misfits was apparently formerly known as just Social Club but changed their name to avoid confusion with a large number of other groups also known as Social Club. Tree Giants (doing the verse and the chorus) is apparently an indie group from Oklahoma. I'm a bit confused as to the origin of this song, as Tree Giants has a song on their SoundCloud page called "Courage" which is identical to this except without the rap parts.

Yeah those are alright. I'd like to add Propaganda and Beautiful Eulogy to that list.

Depending on my mood yes but I prefer more of the underground Christian stuff like Sharlok Poems, Joey The Jerk, Playdough, Sev Statik, Mars iLL, Red Cloud and I also like Trip Lee and Lecrae. What I like is when instrumental versions are available.

I have always been pretty open minded concerning music and am generally able to listen to any genre. Hip hop strains that trait of mine, however. Try as I might, I just cannot seem to enjoy it.

For the most part, I agree totally.  You can't even call it "singing" as they are mostly monotone with their delivery.  That is the same issue I have with a lot of black metal bands as well.

Rapping is more about rhythm and rhyme than melody.

I've got some S.O., iSix:5, Through Hymn, B-Doe, Playdough, Purified, Free Daps, Psalm, Skrip, MC Jin, Deepspace 5, Welfare Society, Stephen the Levite, Beacon Light, and probably a few others I'm forgetting. Solid stuff.

Free Daps addresses that issue about rappers spouting off stuff that makes no sense in a track called Cinnamon. Of course, rap is not the only genre that throws words together more to create mood than to be cogent.

That is what they say; but when your rhythm has you entire measures behind the beat and your words don't really rhyme, then you have lost all musical qualities.  So many rappers do that lazy style where they are not even in time with the beat of the song.  That makes them sound like they have no rhythm.  With them speaking their lyrics, it makes them seem like no-rhythm monotones.

Don't forget that every rap song must start with "yeah ... uh huh ... yeah ... uh huh ... ", each occupying a full measure, and sometimes two. 

I generally have an open mind concerning music, enjoying all forms, but I'm with you: most rap cannot be considered music. My dog's snoring is more musical than most rap songs I have heard. Most, mind you; occasionally I hear one I don't mind and that is actually good quality. For all their foul language and "gangsta" talk I actually liked some of the work of OGs like Ice-T and Ice Cube.

Personally I've never heard any Rap or Hip Hop song that made me think, "I've got to hear more of that!"

I think this is just one of those things. Like when jazz first started to get popular, the... older... folks hated it but the younger folks loved it. I don't remember a time when hip-hop wasn't around and I personally really like some of it.

It's subjective. I know a lot of people that I could play someone as tame as Resurrection Band for and they despise it.

Just months prior to coming to faith in '89, a buddy of mine got me into NWA, RunDMC, and Public Enemy. I had already dug Will Smith style rap, even though I was/am a rocker to the core. I also loved the rap collaborations with Anthrax and Aerosmith. So when I came to faith, some fellow believers pointed me to DBoy, Dynamic Twins, SFC, PID, Freedom of Soul, and some others. Being eclectic, I grew to love them, even hitting some of their concerts in the early 90s.

Today I still love spinning those oldies. But it takes a lot more for me to get into anything newer. I came to enjoy Say What (how could you dislike them ?? Hilarious !) as well as Gospel Gangstas and T-Bone. But aside from some random songs off compilations like GAS 7-Ball mixes, I can't really get into the new stuff.
