THE HIP HOP THREAD!

Is there any other trap rap/gangsta/hardcore rap that you know of that sounds like "Death Row"? What I like about it is how the beats are straight forward but they hit hard.

 

"Death Row" does sample Eazy-E's "Boyz-n-the-Hood", and that's a proper classic. I'd also check out Mulatto's "Bitch From Da Souf". It's less "classy", but the beat also takes a few notes from Eazy-E's classic and it's catchy as hell.

 

But I think modern rappers like Maxo Kream, Big K.R.I.T., Schoolboy Q, ASAP Ferg, IDK, Flatbush Zombies, Killer Mike/EL-P/Run the Jewels etc. might be of interest. They have a much more mature approach to hip hop than a lot todays hip hoppers, similar to Freddie Gibbs. Not saying they sound similar tho.

 

 

This track's just too good. Tech Nine's hook is beyond fantastic, and his verse is superb too. He just popped off on this track.

 

 

 

Unrelated to the stuff above:

 

 

 

 

People are seriously sleeping on Ramirez. This is the hip hop track of the year, and the entire albums is just pure gold. My only complain is that it looses that summery vibe towards the end of the album with Tales From the Guttah and Red Dot. Both songs are phenomenal, just a lot darker. But the rest of the album? Holy damn! Superb, and the productions are familiar as hell, but still super fresh. Hip hop album of the year so far. Would also recommend a lot of his stuff, but this is his best album so far. I would go as far as to put it above his collabs with Suicideboys.
