    Default CBR's Opinions of Hip-Hop?

    Hey, I'm new here and I'm really into music, specifically hip-hop music. Is there a little hip-hop community here?

    There's some hip-hop I like a whole hell of a lot, and some I don't.

    A friend recently got me onto Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, I've been digging the hell out of them.

    Basically I like anything that's not about bitches and bling.

    As far as I know, hip hop gets its fair share of due respect around here. I also post on another geeky forum, where the music subforum is all about metal and punk, and there's maybe 1 or 2 posters who like hip hop.

    I myself am not THAT big of a fan, but I've been listening some more in recent months, sometimes even bingeing hip hop on youtube. Most of it stuff that charted. Some Lost Boyz, some Pharcyde, and a dose of DMX for highschool nostalgia.

    I went through a phase when pretty everything I listened to was rap. I really like Q-Tip, Ice Cube, The Roots, Public Enemy, and OutKast.

    I'm really fond of the Kendrick Lamar EP, but I had not yet gotten around to checking out Good Kid, MAAD City, because I was unimpressed by 'Drank' (musically, not conceptually). Maybe I should give it a second chance.

    Lately I've been listening to a lot of Action Bronson and Lil Ugly Mane. Anything DJ Screw ever released is top-notch, and the wilder Swishahouse boys (Tiger, Pic, Sab, etc) are incredible. I am constantly amazed and grateful that RiFF RAFF exists.

    What do you Kendrick Lamar fans think of Schoolboy Q? I love Habits, but I haven't been able to get into Kendrick Lamar (only tried Good Kid).

    As far as my tastes go, both Habits & Contradictions as well as Good Kid MAAD City feel like pairs of new sneakers I walked on once and don't quite fit yet. 'Raymond 69' sounds good, though.

    I can see that. When I first listened to Habits I was not feeling it much at all. Put it on during a drive and it just "clicked". I could probably listen to "Hands on the Wheel" on loop for a week.

    Speaking of "Hands on the Wheel", opinions on A$AP? Rocky gets a stupid amount of love, but I haven't really cared for anything other than "Peso" and "Purple Swag" (and the remix).

    I prefer mostly old school and underground rap/hip hop. Radio is complete trash these days. Sadly this stuff is popular with the young crowd and is what most rap haters judge the whole genre by.
