Thread: What (Non Hip Hop) Are You Listening To?

    yeah i have both those Massive Attack albums.

    i think i just need to give Maxinquaye a few more plays, never really listened to it that well.

    i like the beats, Tricky's rhyming does nothing for me though.

    8 diagrams was the dead blow for me lol

    well, i think it was making my own CD was the dead blow, then 8 diagrams dropping and sucking allowed me to let go and move on.
    honestly i havent hardly listened to any wu for about 6 months.

    but im still into hip hop, just currently listening to other shit.

    a lot of good stuff droped post 2000, it just depends on whether you like unconventional hip hop really.

    i just don't like it period, even the ones i like i have a hard time listening to all the way through

    actually i like Shaolin Style my Shyheim, Unity by Queen latifia, the Mgm, and Feel me Flow by naughty by nature

    but anything else i feel no need to listen to, it sucks cause i rap and doing it feels like forced work so i just don't

    i stopped listening to A LOT of hip hop, because of that. to develop my own style of mcing. and also to get inspiration from other sources. if not you end up channeling the same bullshit they are talking bout.

    beatles, hendrix, hippy shit in general, but outside of the beatles i couldn't give you names, im a casual listener that likes the sound as opposed to a frequent listener with any knowledge on it

    and with everyone i listed im picky, i don't like any beatles songs that weren't on sgt peppers, revolver, or white album for instance

    oh yeah, def.

    plus it's just not fun anymore for me, its not a challenge and nobody outside of this website knows what im talking about when i rap, plus i used to have a homie boy that i would just go to his basement and we'd attack the whole hip hop thing like musicians, cutting samples, having freestyle sessions, whatever whatever, but he moved and since then anyone that's into hip hop i know is either listening to it or doing it cause it's cool and have no clue what a break beat is, or they're way to fuckin militaristic about it and are huge rap nazis that listen to wack boring shit like aesop rock saying clever sentences for an hour.

    Daft Punks - Discovery is essential.

    the Doors kill it, their self titled album is a favourite.

    I listen to classic rock like Pink Floyd, The Doors and Zeppelin

    Led Zeppelin was to rock what Wu-Tang was to hip hop.


    As far as modern music, Radiohead is probably the best band out there right now. In Rainbows is really good.

    O ya Tool is really good but I havent really listened to them in a while. I feel like theyre too preachy sometimes.
    Lateralus and Aenima were their best albums.

    A Perfect Circle is really good too probably because of Maynard.
