Hip Hop Music - Rap Is Alive

What is happening to hip hop music? I've come across a disgraceful turn for that worse on my tv screen, but let's review some real hiphop music.

Adam Safar and THHM Rihanna

We will follow only albums dropped recently. Needless to say, I highly recommend of all of these albums. I'm not going to criticize any of the albums. Simply because there's already a million individuals who have done so - without or with justification.

Let's get started with the "Conscience Rapper" Common. I wish we didn't have to use that particular terminology to categorize the rapper because all rappers ought to be conscience. It is simply the definition of hip-hop.

Common - Finding Forever

In the incredible "unforgivable" all the way to the air smash hits, "The People" and "The Game" (no similarity to the west coast rapper in any way) ", this album will probably be worth your purchase.

Common puts together rhymes just like a puzzle. Each piece being essential as the last. He uses intricate rhyme schemes, but still gets his point across in the most immaculate manner.

Common exchanges punchlines with Kayne West on "Southside". My favorite collaboration between the two; up to this point. Kayne also produces this track because he does most of the album. West spits at the top of his game while spitting lyrics e.g. "I know you need to be thinking its armorall flow as it never gets rusty". Common however spits amazing lyrics himself, by way of example: "Your career was a typo, mine was written being a haiku."

Though Common never comes out and blames the south for hip-hops decline ( which he mentions a multitude of times) the following lyric from "Start the Show" may be subject to misinterpretation, "You sing along wit it, inside you knowin it's wack, Young who? I don't need a openin act". Common never backs down from a fight. He also mentions deficiency of hip-hop spirit in the song "The Game".

Is that this Common's best work? I don't know. I like it better then his last album. Be a completely different ambience with it though. I guess, we need to give credit to Kayne.

I know this album could be perceived to have a few lackadaisical songs. Unlike fox news, I do give the other side. A counter perspective can be acquired at Nobodysmiling []

Talib Kweli - Ear Drum

Talib's recent effort has sixteen tracks that can fulfill any fans requirement of another album in the rap superstar.

He spits some of his most intellectual and deep thinking lyrics thus far in "Ear Drum".

Electrify one of the most soulful tracks on "Ear Drum" is perfectly known as it does electrify you. Especially the mind as most of the album does.

Your guests help the momentum of the album more than they hurt it. Demonstrated in songs like "Hostile Gospel" with Bun B and Pimp C, just who fit in very well in the banger by Just Blaze.

If Talib was required to take it back to where i started. I'm talking about the hip-hop classic "Reflection Eternal". He definitely took a couple of paces in the right direction.

I'll finish the review by saying that the album isn't perfect, but perfection is incorporated in the beholder.

Brother Ali - The Undisputed Truth

Brother Ali probably would get his mic take off by Bill O Reilly with his very open minded thoughts about America. Actually more times than less, pessimistic views.

A "Letter In the Government" basically denounces the entire war. Ali blatantly states inside the chorus, "I got a letter in the government the other day I opened and focus and burned that man, The way that I live don't concern that man, We gon' ought to settle this another way". I guess he might also be talking about any possibility of a draft and the reaction. Maybe simply a letter asking him to join the military. Nevertheless, probably the most intriguing songs that has been released this year.

The underground artist doesn't stop there with his attitude towards America. Yes, his home country. On the track "Freedom ain't free". He annihilates our foreign policies. Specially when it comes to people who are starving abroad. "So I use blood and sweat to butter my bread, Cos this cold world couldn't provide a fuck if I'm fed".

A high level liberal, you will probably take well to this album. He doesn't such as the war, he doesn't like our foreign policies, anf the husband doesn't like how Muslims are treated. He claims to be described as a devout Muslim in certain tracks.

If this album doesn't allow you to sit back and think. You might want to get your brain examined.

El P - I'll Sleep When I'm Dead

Honestly. Exactly what do I say about this album that wasn't repeated a million times. This can be a monster underground album. One of the biggest in the history of hip-hop. You have not heard of it? Funny, don't you find it? If you like Mike Jones, It is best to don't check out this album, an advanced real hip-hop fan, it is a must!

Nas - Rap Is Dead

I can't think anyone else has stated this, but hip-hop needed this album. Not given it has the best work by my man Nas, speculate we needed the history lesson. I learned a lot from this album, I didn't even know.

It also gave me the motivation to return and play among those old albums. Simply how much dust does your "Mc Shan" records placed on them?

We need to remember our roots, the industry perfect segway for my next album.

The Roots - Game Theory

The Roots come up with an album that flows together like Rakim and Eric B.

You may not skip a track for this cd. I can promise that. Black Thought's even if it's just at the top of his game. Am I the only one who finds that unbelievably scary?

The Root base is breaking ground in hip-hop. Although it's underground generally speaking, It's ultimately refreshing.

Ghost Face - More Fish + Fishscale

We are absolutely exhilarated to get pretty much everything new Ghostface material. Though he's never been type to look at a break from rapping. He returns, probably full fledged with these two near classic albums.

Still spitting as mean to put it mildly. If you want to learn to be an emcee. Study every move of Ghostface.

Killah Priest - The Offering

Although album isn't officially out. It did leak. We've heard nothing but positive reviews. I think this might be his work best to date.

The album also features some terrific artists like Canibus, Ras Kass, Kurupt, and Immortal Technique.

Canibus - To whom The Beat Tolls

I might take some heat for including this album within my list, but Canibus returns to his old self. I couldn't be happier. He is still one of the best lyricists in the game. Never demonstrated better than on his 400 bar track, "Poet Laureate Infinity".

Canibus is acknowledged for being ruthless, but has some lighter moments on the album, on "Dreamzzz", Biz raps about having sex with a female news anchor. He even mentions her name Soledad O'Brien who previously hosted "American Morning". She was taken off because of low ratings, though she is still effective for Cnn on other endeavours. (Incidentally, firefox's spell check can be quite annoying, I know the term endeavours is spelled correctly). It's actually a pretty hilarious dream, but that's about where the games stop to the album.

He spits with a vocabulary that would make Websters jealous throughout the rest of the album and punchlines which will knock you back.

Nothing seems more spectacular than his deep tracks like "Layered Prayers", "One Should not Think, and "Father Author Poor Pauper", where he adopts on a series of issues, including war, poverty, ignorance, and his awesome career.

A must have album for virtually any Canibus fan. Cross that - an album created for you.

Jay Z - Kingdom Kong

Jay Z brings an old album. Honestly, well for the most part. You might get confused on a few tracks, specifically ones with singer Usher and Beyonce.

The Doubt author might not be near the top of his game lyrically after his brief hiatus, but he could be still one of the best emcees amongst gamers. This album will prove it. I won't waste time with quotes, I've got to many.

Ludacris - Release Therapy

Probably the most outrageous and hilarious artists within the history of hip-hop brings an excellent album. I still can't get use for this Ludacris because he is so very different then when he come to the game. But I will be missing out if I didn't.

Do your time and efforts with beanie sigal is surely an amazing song about friends being secured.

Everything is seriously outshined by "runaway love" with Mary J. Blige doing the chorus. As opposed to explain the entire premise, I'll permit you to check out the wikipedia entry located at Ludacris - Runaway Love

Ludacris also raps about creating a record label, being a man, and discusses girls like only Luda can.

As well can I say? It's Luda, Luda!

Pharaoh Monch - Desire

Why isn't this on my small radio station? A robust album to say the least.

Let's go is among the most creative songs, We've heard in a while. He makes use of puns throughout the entire song. Basically taunting everyone.

Nothing compares to Trilogy though, probably the most impeccable songs in recent memory. I can't even explain it, Pharaoh helps to make the song come to life. I'm not even exaggerating. Look it over and see.

For a sophomore album and still room to grow. The guy is doing damn good, i think.

Bone Thugs N Harmony - Thug Stories

I'm kidding.

Bone Thugs N Harmony - Strength Loyalty

Unfortunately Bizzy didn't make the trip to Bones best album since 99's classic eternal 99.

The album has bangers, gangster, and love songs (Bone Thug Style). The guests all do a fantastic job working with their own talents.

Bow Wow and Mariah Carey offer a Lil Love to Bone Thugs and are available up with a good second single.

Akon plays a role in two tracks, "I Tried, and "Never Forget Me". He brings them tracks from very good to definitely good.

The game does his thing on "Streets".

Maybe no more impressive then "Twista" bringing the warmth with his rivals on C-Town. They get gangster like only the chi can.

Though Bones best performance might come when they are solo. Wind Blow which samples "The Chain" by Fleetwood Mac, can be a stand out track around the album.

The promotion was better then latter efforts, however i still don't think the masses know about this album. Please, check it out, if you haven't heard.

Lupe Fiasco - Food And Liquor

Lupe is but one, if not the most original artist to come out in at least four years.

His rhymes schemes, concepts, and unforceful personality really make this album a must have.

Lupe lyrically isn't arrogant, ignorant, or materialistic. The other of everything out right this moment.

I am looking for fresh faces in hip-hop and that is definitely one I want to see. Not so great. He said he is going to retire after three albums, but who trusts hip-hop artists?

His protege Jay Z who handles himself very well on the track "Pressure" he features on, would know about not keeping promises. Jay Z said he would certainly retire after his 03 cd "Black Album". I am as though we have stated previously him in this article? Have to be another Jay Z.

Incidentally, the extremely young (early 20's) Lupe Fiasco, avoids being outshined considerably from the rap veteran. A nearly remarkable feat with the way Jay Z may be killing guest spots recently.

I can't even tell you my favorite tracks with this near classic. I'm merely wanting forward to "The Cool", Lupes next album, that was recently delayed until December with this year.

Field Mob - Light Poles And Pine Trees

Ludacris acquired a great group with talent. I might assume this is the most slept on album of 06.

Aesop Rock - None Shall Pass

Bits and pieces of this album are appearing on multilple web sites. Please keep an eye out for it.

Obie Trice - Second Rounds On Me

Lyrically Obie Trice is beyond most emcees out today. If you love real ghetto lyrics,It is advisable to check out this record.

He is underrated while most of shady records is overrated as being a Bush Gallop poll. Damn. I'm offending the Gop today.

Don't fret. I'll be bashing hip-hop's support of Barack at some point.

I think that's going to wrap it up for this column. It's getting extremely late, this article is getting extremely long, for getting extremely tired. Extremely is really a great adjective. If you check this out entire article, you're even enlightened or bored out of your mind. Thanks either or, I be thankful. You will appreciate it more as soon as you BUY a few of them albums. Peace, Love, and that stuff that got Martin killed. One.
