i find myself wanting to listen to more Modern Hip-Hop then Wu or anything else...
Blackstar, Mos Def And Talib Kweli, Canibus, Royce Da 5'9 (royce not so modern, but death is certain was near close) Common, ya know, things like that.....

the beats, all of it sound dope, i havnt listened to Wu ina few months now =p, i'm not feelin Wu as much anymore, or i just burned myself out on their shit, but any1 else feelin what im saying for real?.

is there any albums that fit into this catagory that u guys want to suggest for me to check out?
cause my taste in rap music changed,. i went to listening to just Wu and Wu-Killabees, Necro , Mobb, Cormega ect.. just real darkish street music, to Modern rap,

now i like listening to Jadakiss, Jounalist, 50 Cent. Game, Lloyd Banks, Bobby Valentino, Copywrite, Jakki Da Motormouth, Gangstarr, Dipset, Cassidy, Missy Eliot, Black Eye Peas ect...ya know bassically the best from their level, to say like 50 Cent makes good mainstrem music as long as its not ont eh radio, dunno why ut the albums singles always sound better to me because thousands of other people arnt listening to it as me i guess,
Bobby Valentino thee hottest R&B singer out there now, Dipset are one of a kind, original fo sho, the way they rap and everything, Cassidy right there between mainstream and underground considering aint too many punchline emcees on the radio, Missy Eliot is a class of her fuckin own, she always has hot fuckin beats on her shit, Black Eye Peashave changed sence when they use to collab with De La and Talib Kweli n such, but its also nice stuff.......

any1 else finding makin themselves a transition from a certain form of rap to anythign else?

but could some1 list some Modern Hip-Hop albums that are worth checkin out....old school or not,

peace

wu-tang makes "modern" hiphop too. also there's wu-tang forever, ironman, the pillage, and supreme clientele.

but wu-tang hasnt really done much to keep anyone's attention so naturally people are going elsewhere for music.

:lmao: My attitude is if it's not good, it sucks ass and Bobby Valentino is average R&B, nothing I'd stress OK

u cant say that that 1st joint from Bobby Valentino is classic? the beat, all of it to me is cool as hell.....easily one of the hottest beats of the year....

and if u care to actually help out and maybe list some possiblitys of some good Modern hip-hop albums, that be usefull, but you sayings he sucks ass, does no justice and no point in arguing with my opinon cause im not lookin for any other opinions....

first off Bobby Valentino is NOT HIP HOP AT ALL. He's garbage R&B

secondly these are some good album that have come out recently that you should get
Kaze & 9th Wonder - Spirit of 94
Masta Ace - A Long Hot Summer
Masta Killa - No Said Date
Sean Price - Monkey Barz
Buckshot - Chemistry
One Be Lo - SONOGRAM
MF DOOM - (Fuck that, all the shit he's come out with in the past couple of years?)
fuck there is a lot of shit that's come out this is what comes to my head, all recent, all classic or near it

^ you're missin out man. Del Tha Funkee Homosapien is Ice Cube's cousin. he's really witty and fun to listen to. he's a member of Deltron, Hieroglyphics, and I guess technically a member of Gorillaz. Check out Deltron's album Deltron 3030 and any of Del's solos. He's one hell of an MC. peace

it's kinda wierd....i used to listen to almost nothing but Wu. Nowadays it seems like all i listen to is commercial shit and crunk music. New master P, BG, Lil Wayne, Three Six Mafia, Ying Yang Twins...etc. I love all those artists and their music gets me hyped like crazy, but it's kinda sad that those artists (among many others) are what's "mainstream" and Wu has taken a backseat.

listen to Jeru the Damaja's album The Sun Rises In The East, the intro explains the situation well.........when one side of the penduluum swings in favor of one side, it swings in favor of the opposite side, or sumthin like that

hip-hop rarely exist's in any true form now'adays. its now, hip-pop, pop-rap. call it wha you want, hiphop is dead and burried, the few artists that are keeping it real, wont be able to last in mainstream rap, unless they adapt too what sales. and when they do that, rap is 100% the next pop genre for lil scholl girls, and pussy ass dudes
