    I like all hip hop. Underground, Mainstream, and Commercial.

    I can't stand wack hip hop. That's about it.

    I tend to not follow a lot of mainstream stuff, or things of that nature - popular opinions, tv shows, music, gods
    I mean I'll listen to something if I like it, I don't dismiss music on the basis of it being popular or not - but 99% of new hip hop does not move me.

    and I got mad fresh style even when I'm goin to the grocery sto to pick up a gallon of water
    sometimes I'll throw on a fancy sport jacket over my wu-tang t-shirt and basketball shorts just to be stupid while I pump gas in this redneck ass area
    what

Many underground mcs suffer from this.

    And nothing this decade is touching 36 chambers, cuban linx, de la soul is dead, illmatic, 6 feet deep....as far as cohesion and focus. I agree the lyrics may be more personal or profound, but the early-mid 90s stuff is way more focused and most importantly, entertaining.
    ^^^^^^^^anything Cunninlyguists, Slug and One Be Lo done can compare or is better. I still stand by my point, this decade has more of the better music.
    + Def Jux ERA >>>> Wu-Tang ERA for me. Both have their advantages, but also I was disappointed by the Wu so many times....never happened with Def Juxxies.

    Yeah, there ain't no Biggie or Big L anymore....but to say hiphop hasn't progressed, IT'S IGNORANT or you just don't know the scene anymore.
    bring back begongo!!

    cunninlynguists and one be lo are both great i'll give you that (a piece of strange and s.o.n.o.g.r.a.m. are 2 of my favorite hip hop albums period) slug bores me to tears, it's just so mundane and pedestrian, the sentiments are there, but it's not appealing to me...i'll give you cold vein, fantastic damage, i'll sleep when you're dead, i phantom, labor days, murs and 9th wonder's 1st album, the listening, monkey barz, game theory,and be as examples of great 21st century hiphop, but to say def jux era>>>>wu-tang era is ridiculous. sure wu has been disappointing for the past few years, i'll agree with that (i was one of the people who posted that currently wu and its affiliates have more wack albums than good and got attacked for it) but 93-98 wu and affiliated is the pinnacle of hiphop. all of the albums i've named in this post can compare quite favorably to 90s classics, but there was definitely more of a consistent stream of quality material back then as opposed to now. it is so rare for an album to rise above mediocrity now.

    fuck biggie and big l anyway, they're not the be all end all of this shit, and where's the progression? (i don't recall saying there was no progression in the post you replied to, in fact I acknowledged that some newer stuff may be more 'personal' or 'profound', but where would an internet forum be without ad hominem attacks like 'it's IGNORANT or you just don't know the scene anymore' ?) Do me favor (because I like good music), name some albums made in the last 2 years that are even worth of classic or superior status...undisputedly superior, not sage francis, slug, eyedea claptrap.
