    Also, wanted to plug this album, after a week it's still in rotation and has a nice West Coast sound even if it did come out of Minneapolis.
    Felt 4 U is amazing! I bought it after hearing the first track. I love the west coast/G-funk vibe it's got going on, reminds me a LOT of Dr. Dre (a very good thing!). I'm only just beginning to dip my toes into Tobacco and Black Moth Super Rainbow. I actually checked out a track or two from Malibu Ken earlier today for the first time, as well. Have you listened to Prof's Powderhorn Suites at all?

    Tobacco collaborated with a lot of rappers through the years. "Lick the Witch" in its EP form features Rob Sonic (he's the guy who did the "no atheists in the air" part on Flyentology). It appears in this video at 5:44:



    Rob Sonic is a very underrated rapper imo. He's usually even producing his songs himself, for which he uses all types of analogue synthesizers:





    The group he was in before going solo was once dubbed as the Radiohead of Hip Hop.

    Aside from the misogyny and homophobic slurs in the lyrics, I love what's going on here.
    That's pretty tough, since it's Trent and all. Maybe give dšlek a shot:

    @katara dalek is incredible. The whole Absence and From Filthy Tongue of Gods and Griots albums are damn near perfect hip hop albums. All their albums are great too.

    I wonder if Hip Hop and music in general will because harder, more raw and confrontational as a result of everything that's going on.





    New LOX is good too. The Large Professor track is the cream of the crop.



    I've also been enjoying the new Nas a lot. I think it's one of his most consistent albums

    Grimy street shit from Toronto.

    Daniel Son.

    Futurewave might be one of my fav new producers. He's like RZA meets Muggs.

    I'm hardly a rap expert, but my personal favorite rap album ever is Original Gangsta by Ice T. Bought it the other week and listened to it for the first time since I was 12 or 13. Love that album. Love Ice T. Always thought he awesome.

    For those who haven't kept up with rap news, DMX (Earl Simmons) was rushed to a hospital in White Plains, NY following a heart attack at his home on April 2nd. The suspected cause is an overdose. He has had lung and brain failure and was put on life support so the outcome looks very grim.

    Personally, I thought that DMX set himself aside from all of other rappers coming up around the same time with his unique delivery, storytelling, lyricism, and overall east cost grittiness. When his contemporaries like Jay-Z were becoming more commercial and making pop/R&B crossover hits, DMX was always the guy who kept it real. Having said that, DMX had his fair share of club bangers too (Who remembers Party Up in Here!?). DMX had also a very good selection of introspective songs and dare I say a sensitive side with songs like Slippin', Let Me Fly, and Prayer.

    Like you said, he was definitely one of the only major rappers that kept it real. I really hope he comes through this. His music was definitely a part of my life growing up.

    I met him many years ago outside next to my job, he was at a hobby shop buying remote control race cars.

    RIP Earl Simmons AKA DMX. 1970 - 2021. This one hit harder than all of the other rappers who passed in my lifetime (I was too young to listen to rap when Tupac or Biggie passed). His music was the first real rap that I listened to back in 2000/01 and he remained one of the last true artists in the industry. Unfortunately his demons caught up to him, which is tragic since he seemed to have been recovering from hard living in the last couple of years.

    Me too, man. Pac got killed pretty quickly after I started listening to him, so there wasn't some deep emotional thing going on for me with that. It reminds me of some song I heard that says something like "I didn't cry when Pac died, but I will when Hova does."

    Also, it's horrible that all these younger artists are overdosing and getting shot, but that just isn't the hip hop I listen to. The first rapper that we lost that REALLY hit me hard was MF DOOM, and now, DMX.

    After reading your post, it occurred to me that this is one of the first HUGE name rappers to go, for those of us who got SERUOSLY into hip hop in the JayZ/Nas generation rather than the Biggie/Pac era. It's only separated by a very few years, but they were FORMATIVE years, you know?

    I mean, it sounds like I'm a little older than you- I was 16 when Pac got killed, but it still applies.

    I feel you too, this was definitely heavier for me as it's the first time one of the artists that I listened to in my youth passed away. I'm 34 right now, so I was 9 when 2Pac was murdered and 10 when Biggie passed. I kind of stopped listening to mainstream rap about 10 years ago, so I haven't kept up with the latest trends in hip-hop. MF-DOOM was also difficult when I found out but in all honesty but I wasn't a huge fan of his work like I was for DMX. I grew up in a fairly conservative family that looked down on rap music, but it didn't stop me from discovering rappers like DMX, Nas, Jay-Z, Eminem and such from friends at junior high school at the time. The cool kids at school at the time were all listening to rap, and I was getting picked on by some of them because I was nerd, so I had this idea to "freestyle" to them to show them how cool I was. Looking back it was so stupid, but I managed to say "X' Gon Give It To Ya" in my lines (my last name starts with an X) and that drew a huge reaction from those guys and they left me alone for the rest of the time in school. That's one of the moments that stood out for me in my youth, using a line from a DMX song to stand up to my bullies.
