Hi guys, I'm new to this forum. I know you guys are all into music, so who is your favorite rapper?

Mine would have to be either J-Kwon or Chingy. I love it when J-kwon is like "everybody in the club get tipsy!" and chingy is like "somethin something holidae inn...somethin somethin holidae innn"

Here's J-Kwon in the locker room after a hard day of yoga. He might be the best rapper that ever existed, but he's got a lot of training to do when it comes to yoga!


http://www.hoopshype.com/chingy_smallcover.jpg
Here's Chingy posing in his favorite colors red and gold. He used to work for McDonald's. He actually caught his first big break when his manager heard him rapping about food. Here's the rap:

"Hamburglar wanna get burgers,
McDonalds gets bigger and tastier with corporate mergers,
Chingy work the cash register,
McDonalds is better than the competitors,
I wanna eat french fries every single day,
Wanna marry me a French fry but I'm not gay,
The chicken McNuggets can't be beat,
It's like I met the chicken goddess and she let me suck on her teet,
So come to McDonald's and have a great time,
I would do anything to work here, even if they cut my paycheck to a dime!"

Hearing the last line, his manager cut his paycheck to a dime. Chingy kept his word and worked there for 24 more years. Now he is the second greatest rapper that ever existed.

So who are your favorite rappers? What's your opinion on rap?

I don't think rap is music. People should listen to funk instead! Death to rap!!!! DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE! People listen for the "beats", but they are boring beats. Eastern music has much better "beats".

This is disgusting. I hate all rap, but the rap that is about screwing "bitches" and killing people makes me want to puke. I have given tons of rap a chance, and I hate it all. I have gone to music festivals and have heard hip-hop about peace and love and I still hate it. It doesnt make any since to me.

rap doesn't make sence to you???
i'm just as against all the fuckin bitches pimpin hoes rap as the next guy, but to say that a geniun form of artistic expression doesn't make any sence to you?? i can see not enjoying it, but you have to give credit where credit is do. :P

JohnRHaupert i was going to equate youyr hatred of rap with racism but since have thought better of it. Also I could not come with anything clever, but seriosly i do not see how you can stereotype a whole genre of music. I used to say I hated country when I was in my early teens. God was I wrong.

Anyway rappers for me: long list, but all so highl reccomended
Mos Def (early (blackstar (w/ talib kweli(sp?)))
MF doom (all pseudonyms (Madvillan and Vaude villian (albums) especially))
Public Enemy
Busdriver
Digable Planets

Hip Hop
Tribe called Quest, Del La Soul and Del the Funk Homosapian

Racist? Haha, but I dislike any rapper, regardless of their race. And I love jazz, blues, rock and roll, funk, gospel, so I think that if I based musical taste on which race started it, I wouldnt like much music...

Sorry, I was not going to insinuate that you were a racist because you did not like rap. But wanted to basicaly say your judging all rap based on the few artists you have heard is similar in a way to racism. You had stereotyped rap as a genre of music that was only about pimps, bitches, ect. All I can say is I would reccomend keeping an open mind.

"Handsome Boy Modeling School" and "Deltron 3030" made me fall in love with Hip Hop. Saul Williams is also amazing. Immortal technique is good also but i don't like it when he degrades women. I have a friend who does poetry that sounds a lot like Saul Williams and it's very intense and enjoyable.

But I am saying that I have heard rap about peace and love and such, and I still dont like it. It is the style, not only the content!

MF Doom, of course. The new album DangerDoom leaked a few days ago and it's great, really. Dangermouse, surprisingly, deserves some of his celebrity. The track with Ghostface gets me so excited for the Ghostface/Doom album coming out later. /akdjfl Can't wait.

I still play College Dropout and The Black Album a lot in the car; I'm looking forward to Late Registration.

Common's Be is my album for the summer. I've also been listening to Edan's Beauty and the Beat a lot. It's sort of slow in some spots, but there are a few songs that are incredible.

Atmosphere is hands down the best guy in rap rite now, hes actually got a sence of humor...and he raps about emo kids (who "got to many feelins")

For politicaly charged stuff i've really been into immortal technique lately, but i can understand shying from that if your not into the hole shok rap thing.

And i gotta go with planet asia too, just cuz he's reppin the 559.

what what.
