ive noticed Aesop Rock and Atmosphere have been gettin exposer on MTV, even video play for Aesop Rock from his new album and single.....

i was wondering:
1. What Do U Think About Aesop And Atmosphere Gettin MTV Exposer
2. Why Does Aesop Rock's Albums Only Have 7 Or So Tracks (give or take a few on a few albums)?

2. Why Does Aesop Rock's Albums Only Have 7 Or So Tracks (give or take a few on a few albums)?Aesop's last CD only had a few tracks cuz it was just a bonus disk for a book of lyrics.

Aesop has releases with only like 7 tracks becuase they're EPs like Daylight is. The book was a bonus with the Fast Cars, Danger Fire and Knives EP.

you notice theyre only giving exposure to white underground artists, none to doom, immortal technique, vordul, oktober, murs or any cats like that. Most of Atmosphere's fans are indie rock kids who hate rap.

they're getting exposure because they're fucking trendy rappers, trendy "alternative" rap. i fucking hate aesop rock and atmosphere. you know who their biggest fans are? white kids who wear sandals and listen to Phish. fuck them both. it was a matter of time until they got on MTV

i was at a deck/MK show and the promoter said "we have to compete with all that aesop rock bullshit"

co signed it's funny aesop was on the wu meets indie album, but yeah this type of shit is fucking up the underground scene, because then you've got dudes like one.be.lo aka one man army who can't get his message out because the scenes overcrowded by whiteboys who were stuck on rock's dick til a year or so ago and listen to sage francis or some shit and look down on any hip hop with some street shit in it, regardless of if knowledge is spit in it also, they wanna hear that esoteric abstract shit or some super emotional shit exclusively. Ive had arguments with these type of dudes in cyphers and at stores and shit.

aesop sucks (except when he was on wu meets indie culture, he actually rapped there) but atmosphere is kinda nice, not as bad as aesop so he's better.

anyhow if you think they're only getting "exposer" because they're white then why aren't any psychological guys getting videos played?

I'm definitly surprised and shamed by the reaction of some posters in here. You may not like Aesop or Atmosphere, but they represent somthing that should have been in Hip-Hop ages ago. Slug has some of the deepest poetic metaphors I've hearn in a while. Listen to "Scapegoat" If you don't believe me. Aesop is truely an architect when he is on the mic. You just misunderstand him like when every other Wu-Fam misunderstands U-God. It is funny how you sound like the queer mainstream dickriders on a saturday night in a Mike Jones concert. Underground Hip-Hop is Underground Hip-Hop, I wouldn't be surprised if El-P took a stance at an MTV show, and still you guys would persist to bring him down. Go listen to Nelly's "Air force ones". Fucking kites.

Actually I have a very diverse selection of music. I enjoy Bach and Mozart alike. The fact still remains that...

Aesop and Atmosphere both equally blow ass.

Ever heard of Subterraneous??? they're pretty gangsta in your opinion I'm guessing. Your a faggot back-packer, I can smell the Power Bar on you.

They gettin airplay because a lot of dudes today switchin it up, a lot of cats new to rap who when they first got into rap, started listenin to what was in crunk and all that. Now these same dudes get hated on cuz that's what they know so they decide to listen to what everyone NOW is approving of the "real" shit. Give it a year or so and the underground scene is gone be huge.

The only reason why I think Aesop got on MTV was cuz of the MTV Woodie Awards thing (it's some college music awards sponsored by MTV or something like that). And Aesop was one of the nominees for best animated video cuz of the video for "Fast Cars". So I think they had him on MTV just to make all the college kids happy.

Straight nail in the coffin and one cat said it best only because they white. They will never give real hip hop from the source like Immortal Technique spittin real shit any time of day..Also Dipset all day and not because it's "in" but because they got that FFFIIIIREEE. Recognize lil tweetie boys..Also don't come on this forum thinkin Wutang with that lame Aesop shit..they either about knowledge of self a small few or gettin that ass and hydro and let's not forget stackin lucci..One

Im definitely not a "fag backpacker" as you so eloquently put it, I play college football and i fuckin hate hippies. All im tryin to say is different does not automatically equal shit, and there is alot of shit out there like that one crew...i forget their name.... oh yeah dipset the only real gangster in that whole crew is Freaky Zeeky and he doesnt even rap. You got Juelz santanas pussy ass throwing microphones at people and shit you think these guys are real street shit they fuckin blow and for the record ANdre Nickatina is my favorite rapper. ANd no i dont think that hood folks are all retards and goofballs cuz im from the bay and i sure as fuck aint a retard just sounds to me like you think that you need to hate anything that aint gangster to preserve your "street status", Its fuckin stupid
