Is this like actual discussion of hip hop, or is it just like hip hop news that's here?
If it's actual hip hop discussion.... does soulja boy count as a hip hop artist are as a hunk of shit we throw money at?

Well, i mean can you really call what he does rapping?
Plus, most of his songs don't even make any damn sense.
Also, does every single one of his songs need to have a dance for it?
I know i'm hating, but i think it's just dumb.

@ KFZ, I understand, and personally I don't dig most of his songs either, BUT, have u heard his track "Kiss me through the phone" ft Sammie???
From his latest album Soulja Boy Tell Em, believe me, it's wicked man, and none of that hardcore rap stuff either....

Ohh yea, i heard kiss me through the fun, that's the only song of his that i find nice. Everything else though, just seems like mindless ranting though.

I think if you want to get "killed" by him because he's so "smart", you should battle him in naming conspiracy theories.

He seems to be good at expanding on those. Anyways..

Shawty fire burnin on the dance floor...

That song is too damn catchy.

Can't stand Soulja Boy or Asher Roth.

My favorite rappers at the moment are: Eminem, Lil Wayne, Mike Posner, Wiz Khalifa, Eric B. & Rakim, & Drake.

Mike Posner and Wiz Khalifa are some new people on the horizon that you should really check out. Mike Posner made a brillant cover of Kiss Me Thru The Phone that can be found here:

Jay-Z's First Single With Kanye & Rihanna:

Well it's here. The first single from Jay-Z for his upcoming "Blueprint 3" album (if you don't count his street single "D.O.A." is now available! "Run This Town" features hit producer slash rapper Kanye West and singer slash ex-Chris Brown girlfriend, Rihanna. With Rihanna on the chorus and Kanye spitting a verse of his own...

As previously reported, Jay-Z decided to switch the first single from his upcoming "Blueprint 3" album from a track that featured Drake to "Run This Town" which as said above features Kanye West and Rihanna. News of the switch hit via the Hot 106 radio station when the Dj came on saying "JUST GOT WORD: NEW Jay-Z single coming this Friday (July 24) called "Run This Town" with Kanye and Rihanna"!

I see a mention of Immortal Technique, but aside from that, where's all the real Hip Hop?

Rap/Hip-hop isn't what it used to be!

My personal favourite rappers are :-

2pac, Notorious B.I.G., Eminem, Nas, Immortal Technique, KRS-One, Busta Rhymes (Before 'The Big Bang', his latest stuff is poor), Ice Cube, Common and Big L.

and Groups :-

Jurassic 5, Wu-Tang Clan and D12.

I've forgotten a few aswell.

90% of RAP/HIPHOP is trash nowadays, its all gone mainstream,

I prefer to listen to Underground stuff like;

Immortal Technique, Vinnie Paz, Klashnekoff, Skriblah, Jus Allah.

& even Grime like; Wretch 32, Black the ripper, Little Nasty.

50 Cent, Eminem, Lil Wayne have no sick lyrics; just tracks for the clubs.

Even pac and big had tracks just for the clubs. But vinnie paz is sick. I hate the fact that he's the only one in JMT who seems to know what they're doing and sounding good. He kinda contradicts himself a lot, though...

You guys should listen to Canibus if you like tech. He's very wordsy and his flow is ridiculously good.

A BUNCH of unreleased 2Pac tracks have been droppin as of late.

Vinnie Paz is gonna release a solo album sometime this year.

Kelis is a bitch for taking all of Nas' money.

Nas/Marley album dropping this year.

Raekwon's OB4CL2 is SUPPOSE to drop this year. It had so many push backs already that I won't be surprised it it doesn't drop.

Swizz Beatz Talks Working On Jiggas Blueprint 3

Hit producer Swizz Beatz recently talked about his role in Jay-Z's upcoming "Blueprint 3" album in a new interview with MTV. Beyond producing tracks for Jigga's beyond highly anticipated new LP, Swizz talked about how he and HOV both share a huge appreciation for music.

"I've been kicking since '98," Swizz said in an interview. "That's what I told Hova, 'We did it in '99, and we 'bout to do it in '09.' That's a blessing. I've been around...I like the album...He gotta say a lot. You know who to come through for the gutter [beats]. He just called me from London, spazzin'. Me and Jay, we're so much into the art of music, and we're great friends. This album, we happened to get into a little bit. That sh*t is super fun. We're still working."

In my opinion it's 2pac, the guy was before my time (I was 4 or 5 when he died ) but he was amazing, his lyrics are sensational!!!

Close second B.I.G.!

But hey everyone will have different opinions on who is GOAT, if anyone says Soulja Boy or Lil' Wayne though...... that's taking it too far.

I started out listening to 2pac, and B.I.G also, loved those guys, also like the female rap scene somewhat as well, Lil Kim, Foxy Brown, Shawnna etc.

These days I seem to be playing Young Jeezy's albums over and over, I dont know much about the guy but his tracks are so amazing. Listen to some Lil Wayne, Ludacris, Busta Rhymes, prefer older stuff though, once they go mainstream, it is usually bye bye skill.

That's what most people think about Eminem because all they hear is shitty singles on the radio and think that's all he is. I tell him to listen to "Till I Collapse" and get back to me.

It was good. But not as good as SSLP or Infinate. Each album has gotten worse.

I think he improved up to 'The Eminem Show' then after that his albums have been worse (but not terrible).
