Del Tha Funkee Homosapien - I Wish My Brother George Was Here

Del Tha Funkee Homosapien may be the cousin of gangsta rap icon Ice Cube, who was the executive producer on this debut, but it would be hard to imagine two more dissimilar artists. Yet, just as Ice Cube helped popularize and legitimize West Coast gangsta rap with NWA, Del helped lay the foundation for what would become California's thriving underground scene with his seminal debut, I Wish My Brother George Was Here.

Predating similarly seminal debuts from like-minded artists like tha Alkaholiks, Souls of Mischief, Freestyle Fellowship, and Pharcyde, Brother George takes the Parliament-Funkadelic-derived G-funk sound popularized by NWA and spins it into exciting new directions, replacing gangsta rap's nihilism with a healthy sense of the absurd.

Panacea - The Scenic Route

Panacea’s sophomore effort, The Scenic Rout, is a journey. Yes it is a hip hop LP, but more than that, it is a surreal, deeply musical and incredibly unique concept album. From start to finish, the listener is able to follow the evolution of not only the character on the journey, but of Panacea as artists. The result is something so new that its creativity will intrigue even today’s most jaded listeners.

Large Professor - Main Source

Large Professor still keeps busy DJing and producing, and this year sees the release of a new album, Main Source.

Anybody that remembers the clanging sleigh bells of "Halftime" and the glorious saxophone over synths from "It Ain't Hard to Tell" knows that Large Professor is capable of fantastic beats, and Main Source confirms that right off the bat. "The Entrance," starting with a scrambled-up mélange of noise, morphs into a stinging guitar solo over thumping drums, with a well-delivered rap by Large Professor making for a fantastic start to the proceedings.

Elsewhere, "Pump Ya Fist" boasts energetic horns, R&B shouts, and wicked scratching, "Ru Dope" gives Jeru Tha Damaja a jazzy, mellow flavor to wrap one quick verse around, and album closer "The Hardest" sounds like something straight out of the mid-90s hip-hop heyday, with buzzing, heavy bass and mellow synth lines rolling in and out. The entire album has a laid-back vibe throughout, with Large Professor showing off his talent like a painter using his entire palette; the beats sound like the same man made them, but they don't sound the same.

Q-Tip - The Renaissance

When the best rapper/producer in hip-hop history spends almost a decade without a record on the shelves (despite his best efforts), it has to be considered a crime — if not a tragedy. Difficult to tell, though, is why Q-Tip was bounced to five different labels within six years. He never pronounced himself angry about the situation, saying only that he continued to work, reportedly recording three full albums that were never released.

His long-awaited return on The Renaissance is no disappointment, offering more of the same understated, aqueous grooves and fluid rapping that the Abstract Poetic has built his peerless career on. Although it has a few more message songs than his dance-heavy debut from 1999 (Amplified), many of these tracks are club grooves painted with the same production touches as ten years earlier; his work is still excellent 20 years after his career began, Some of the songs are built with a live group (including guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel).

One thing is for sure: Q-Tip is still a master of pacing and atmosphere, structuring the first half of the record so smoothly that listeners may not notice a transition until the sixth track, "We Fight/We Love," which contrasts the perspective of a man in the middle of war with a woman left alone. Sounding like a latter-day Midnight Marauders and The Love Movement, and very similar to the unreleased Kamaal the Abstract, The Renaissance is a worthy comeback for the man who's arguably done more to make hip-hop enjoyable than any other figure.

Nas - Illmatic [The Samples]

This set is just awesome from start to finish, all credit goes to Lyrics 2 Go and Hip Hop Is Read.

The work that guys like Premo, Pete Rock, LP, L.E.S. and Q-Tip put in on this record set it apart from most. It oozes with soul and refined beat-craftsmanship. The prevalent genre on this set is jazz, and rightfully so: Nas' pops is a jazz musician and -- understandably so -- must have affected his musical preferences and beat choices for his debut record. Original tracks by The Gap Band, Joe Chambers and The Heath Brothers stand out, most definitely; but all in all, this set is just a great playlist to kick back and vibe to.

Mos Def - Black on Both Sides

Black on Both Sides is an alternative rap album by Mos Def, released on October 12, 1999. Intended as a return to the roots of hip hop, the album was hailed as a classic soon after its release, and went on to ship Gold in sales. The album's blend of socio-political rhymes with jazz and other unusual sources of samples endeared Mos Def to listeners uninterested in gangsta rap.

In keeping with his goal of restoring hip-hop's sociopolitical consciousness, Def's lyrics are as intelligent and thoughtfully crafted as one would expect, but he doesn't stop there — he sings quite passably on several tracks, plays live instruments on others (including bass, drums, congas, vibraphone, and keyboards), and even collaborates on a string arrangement. In short, Black on Both Sides is a tour de force by an artist out to prove he can do it all.

Its ambition and execution rank it as one of the best albums of 1999, and it consolidates Mos Def's position as one of hip-hop's brightest hopes entering the 21st century.

Cannibal Ox - The Cold Vein

With this decade now coming to a close i have no doubt in my mind this album right here will go down in the top 5 hip hop albums of the 00's.

The Cold Vein was the first full-length album to be released on former Company Flow member El-P's newly founded Definitive Jux record label, and its release was preceded by a significant amount of hype, particularly within the hip hop community.

"You were a still born baby/Mother didn't want you, but you were still born/Boy meets world, of course his pops is gone/What you figga?/That chalky outline on the ground is a father figure?/So he steps to the next stencil, that's a hustler/Infested with money and diamond clusters."

Kings of Leon - Only By The Night

This is their new album, am really enjoying it at the moment so taught i'd share it with you.

In interviews with the band, it has been said that the next album will "rock harder" and more tracks like "Charmer", "Black Thumbnail" and "Camaro" have been suggested. "We've broadened our musical tastes in the past couple of years and feel we're ready to tackle our southern roots...again" says Jared Followill, the band's bass guitarist.

Music from the Motion Picture Pulp Fiction is the soundtrack to Quentin Tarantino's 1994 film Pulp Fiction. No traditional film score was commissioned for Pulp Fiction. The film contains a mix of American rock and roll, surf music, pop and soul The soundtrack is equally untraditional, consisting of nine songs from the movie, four tracks of dialog snippets followed by a song, and three tracks of dialog alone. Six songs featured in the movie were not included in the 41-minute soundtrack.

Beastie Boys - Check Your Head

much of its initial success was due to the cult audience that Paul's Boutique cultivated in the years since its initial flop release, a group of fans whose minds were so thoroughly blown by that record, they couldn't wait to see what came next, and this helped the record debut in the Top Ten upon its April 1992 release.
This audience, perhaps somewhat unsurprisingly, was a collegiate Gen-X audience raised on Licensed to Ill and ready for the Beastie Boys to guide them through college. As it happened, the Beasties had repositioned themselves as a lo-fi, alt-rock groove band.

In contrast to their previous album, Paul's Boutique, the Boys returned stylistically to their punk rock roots on Check Your Head, playing their own instruments.

Wildstyle (Film)

Wild Style was the first hip hop motion picture. Released independently in 1982 by First Run Features and later re-released for home video by Rhino Home Video, the movie featured Fab Five Freddy, Lee Quinones, the Rock Steady Crew, The Cold Crush Brothers, Patti Astor, Sandra Fabara and Grandmaster Flash. The protagonist is the legendary New York graffiti artist "Lee" George Quinones as "Zoro". The film has received a large cult following over the years after its initial release.

Highly regarded hip-hop albums such as Illmatic by Nas, Black Sunday by Cypress Hill and Check Your Head by Beastie Boys have featured samples from Wildstyle. Significantly, the MTA allowed director Charlie Ahearn to film in the actual train yards in New York City. I
n 2007, the VH1 Hip Hop Honors paid tribute to Wild Style in recognition of its influence upon the culture. The "Wild Style" logo on the film's cover was a massive mural painted on a wall by Zephyr, Revolt and Sharp.

The Velvet Underground - The Velvet Underground & Nico

If for some odd reason you taught im only going to be posting hip hop albums on this blog, your largely mistaken. This blog is all music that hip hop heads listen to, anyway expect more rock, soul, reggae, etc.

Recorded in 1966 during Andy Warhol's Exploding Plastic Inevitable multimedia event tour, The Velvet Underground & Nico would gain notoriety for its experimentalist performance sensibilities, as well as its focus on controversial subject matter expressed in many of their songs.

Though largely ignored upon its release, it has since become one of the most influential and critically lauded rock albums in history!

Gang Starr - Moment of Truth

Dope track after dope track, dope verse after dope verse, c'mon sometimes thats all you need!

Stylistically, Premier's beats, while maintaining the signature two-measure loop and scratched chorus formula, expand their range of samples. Not only does he use more orchestral (ie, less funk/soul-based) horns and strings, but he also features more atonal, non-melodic samples, a style he'd first explored on Jeru the Damaja's The Sun Rises in the East. Guru also grows somewhat on the album; he focuses more openly on social issues, and attempts to embrace his status, which had grown considerably during Gang Starr's hiatus to the point where many already considered him a hip hop legend. Of course, his trademark battle rhymes are also in full force on many tracks.

De La Soul - Stakes Is High

1996's Stakes Is High was the first album not produced by Prince Paul, with overall production credits given solely to the trio, and again, was met with mixed results and poor sales.
The title track and first single, produced by Jay Dee, was not a hit, but second single Itsoweezee (HOT), with only Dave on vocals, did fare better due to its creative music video. The album spawned a third single 4 More featuring Zhane which failed to chart. The album did provide a launching pad for future star rapper and actor Mos Def, who appeared on the track "Big Brother Beat." The album also featured collaborations with Common (Sense), Truth Enola, and the Jazzyfatnastees.

Portishead - Roseland NYC Live (1997)

Roseland NYC Live is a live album by Portishead with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra. It was released in 1998 by Go! Discs/London.

Performing with a 35-piece orchestra, Portishead runs through selections from its two albums, favoring its second slightly. On the surface, it doesn't seem like the orchestra would add much to the performances, especially since the arrangements remain similar, but its presence makes the music tense, dramatic, and breathtaking.

Classic from Ultramagnetic MC's

Besides being an undeniable hip-hop classic, the first album by the cult crew Ultramagnetic MC's introduced to the world the larger-than-life, one-of-a-kind personality of Kool Keith. That alone would make this some sort of landmark recording, but it also happens to be one of the finest rap albums from the mid- to late-'80s "new school" in hip-hop that numbered among its contributors Run-D.M.C., Public Enemy, and Boogie Down Productions. Critical Beatdown maintains all its sharpness and every ounce of its power, and it has not aged one second since 1988.

Radiodread - Easy Star All-Stars

Radiodread is a 2006 album by the Easy Star All-Stars, a collaboration of reggae and ska artists. Radiodread is a complete, song by song makeover of Radiohead's OK Computer into reggae, ska, and dub.

Michael Goldwasser, who produced and arranged Radiodread:

"OK Computer has elements that are perfect [for reggae] -- strong melodies, intense dynamics and trippy soundscapes. On the other hand, it has complex time signatures, lots of chord changes and things that typically aren't found in reggae. However, the more we looked at it, the more we realized that this was an album we had to do. Radiohead has given their blessing to the tracks they've heard so far, and we are excited for them to hear the complete album."

No samples from OK Computer or any other music were used in making Radiodread. You don't even have to of heard Ok Computer to enjoy this, but if you have and are a Radiohead fan then this will blow you away!
