Few of the griemiest rappers

Saturday, August 2, 2008

When I think about the word grimy, I think about the tone of a rappers voices and the lyrical content. I think when it comes to grimy the rap group 'Onyx' is the best example. They are nutting but grimy. Real hardcore rappers from south side Queens. I have been fan of them since their debut album. The songs have street credibility and it is nutting but grimy. The song 'move back' is hit I can remember even a broader audience is open for this kind of hip hop. The song 'slam' is another good example how they move the crowd with top notch hip hop. The joint 'the worse' is really a good collabo with nicest rappers in the hip hop scene.

Also DMX is also one of the grimiest rappers. This rapper from Yonkers has to deliver a message to the audience what the streets are about. His voice sounds grimy and so does the lyrics. Only thing I can not stand is the fact that he call him self a dog. Since his debut album he has gained much attention and he is multi platinum recording artist. Songs such as 'what is my name' are real classics. The line 'I lost my mind, you about to lose yours too' is a memorable line.


My favorite years !!!!!!!!!!

Friday, August 1, 2008

First of all the first rapper I ever heard was Grand Master flash and the furious five. However they made a lot of impression. I was more into break dancing than dreaming about becoming a rapper. The vibe was set how the hip hop culture started. Till the early nineties I didn't started to listen to rap. This was a crazy time. I was influenced by the whole west coast gangsta rap and became a total fan of west coast rap.

Although I felt like that this was only a one sub genre in rap music. I felt the need for exploring more of the raw and depth in rap music. I found southern rap, this was also lot like the west coast rap. It was also the gangsta vibe and the beats were of that funk influence. I found later about the east coast rap. This made me dig deeper into the history of hip hop. This is where my whole mind state changed when I heard Rakim, Brand Nubian and Kool G Rap. This was a great era for me. This was the era that I felt that hip hop music is not just form of entertainment but also a culture. However I have all my favorite albums sort out by the year it came out. My favorite era is from 1990 till 1998. These eight years of my life was everything was going fine. I was having fun with my friends and hanging out doing was kids do on that age. Now I feel like that was maybe because those were my favorite years and I was feeling good, that is why rap music sounds great in my ear.

Since 2003 I have the feeling that rap music went downhill because the quality of the beats got too melodic and this is for the new generation in the hip hop music a major break through because the broader audience can link with this type of music.

I heard once Krs-One said that rap music is a set up. It depends on how a hip hop fan or rappers view this statement. I think the way Krs-One explain this fact he feels victimize by his own success. This is why he claims that rappers are in danger. I think the listeners and all the fanatics trying to make it are the ones who are in danger. If you stand alone there is no one in your family or in your environment who are familiar with the rap music business, then it can be quite stressful job to make it top to the on your own.

I have seen this too often around me kids who started to sell drugs, because they tried to live up too the examples of the rappers who are blowing up with gimmicks. In this case there are too many kids who do not have a chance in the rap music business, because they get hooked when they start to sell drugs and to their ideals they can say good bye. If they only get hooked there is always rehab for them. It gets even worse than that it can end up in a war. Some of the rappers out nowadays want to be the next Tony Montana or Frank Lucas. Still there is no such thing as a set up. Because it is truly a weakness to have the neighborhood thug appeal or want to be ghetto fabulous. There are plenty of choices for the kids in the urban America. So the media hype and the misogyny lead rappers to act a certain way for the money. This is not a sign of a set up but more of an wrong choice what rappers and the listeners make to love the violence and crime in rhyme. I can say it is quite ridiculous when you see Philippines kids dressed up like Mexican gang members and trying to put a hit on a kid who did nothing wrong to them. This happened in small country town, where they do not play rap music in the clubs or where ever. I witnessed this, as far as I know this kid they tried to put a hit on never touched their girl or called their girls female dogs. Rap music is not a set up, but more of a reflection of the media hype of Hollywood drama. There are only few who are really close to the roots of the hip hop culture and treat this as a blessing and they are not out for fame or the money they want to show the world what work is and dedication is most of all they want to deliver a dope rhyme which can uplift the minds and entertain the people. Even Jay-Z say that rap music is a half of a curse, no this never can not be. I think he is blessed with a special gift that whole lots of kids are dreaming of. There is price to be paid and this comes with this gift. The price of the fame is that media will constantly follow the rappers and fans will come to for a autograph. This price can not be a curse or a set up. To become a famous rapper is a grown mans choice and a young kids dream. I think Krs-One and Jay-Z can not appreciate the gift they are blessed with or they want to make sure that the youth who are willing to make rap music their occupation will get stressed and give up because they are afraid that a kid comes through and take their market by force showing his true dedication and the skills.

When it is a set up there will be quite a few choice left to for the urban kids, thanks to the racist economic wealthy countries one choice is left out which is getting a regular job. The minorities are forced to live up to the media hype and do the typical things what their own ethnicities do, this will make them a part of their community but they are not able to function as a individual. These things got to do with the choices what a person make. I think even in the most racist countries as USA there is room for minorities to find their way if they do not point the finger at someone else instead of looking at their selves. Lacking individuality can be the blame for people blaming the society for their own mistakes. There is a limit for everything if you trying to be the hero and take the justice in your own hand it can look like a plot or set up for the victimized citizens. Let’s say if your colleagues at Burger King throw racist terms at your dome, this can be painful plus and can make you angry. If you trying to play the judge and put sanctions on them with violence. Soon or later this person will get caught by the authorities and will have to do time. This is a classic sample of a setup. That rappers feel victimized by rap music and call rap music a set up sounds like Mel Gibson being paranoid in the movie 'Conspiracy Theory'. This is also a sign of a heroin addiction or Schizophrenic symptoms.

I heard from some old school fans that Wu-Tang Clan is heavily inspired by X-Clan. Anyway why Wu-Tang Clan is my favorite rap group of all time can be explained. In the nineties when I was crazy about the west coast hip hop culture. The east coast struck with a live influence of the Shaolin martial arts and the five percent teachings. This gave me a whole another meaning and this was a major turn point to my flavor of rap music.

The affiliation with Shaolin martial arts meant discipline and control of the mind, body and soul. The Wu tang clan members could explain the game of chess like it was a sword fight. I interpret this like free style rapping off top of the head. Although I never practiced this art. Untill couple of months ago. I happen to get hang of it within 3 months. It is really a challenge. I do not practice this art no more it is no more challenging when you master the art of free styling of top of the head. The sample ‘Game of chess is like a sword fight’ This was the most memorable sample of the debut album of Wu-tang clan. The whole concept knowledge wisdom and understanding is put in a bright light and explained through parables and metaphors with rhymes on beats by Wu-Tang Clan. It is my own habit to appreciate the debut albums more than the follow ups. In Wu-Tang Clans case it is the also like that. Wu tang clan set trend with their wally shoes, hoodies and the PLO style. I think except for Masta Killa and GZA all the Wu members got their own style which is unique. If I have to pick my favorite Wu Member it would be a tough choice because they can not be compared with one and another. I think the rhyme style of Reakwon is the nicest. Because this is typical New York ghetto slang. He can tell a story without exaggerating and without emphasizing the drama of the people of the ghetto's. It is very realistic and has much flavor.

The debut album contain samples from the Shoalin movies and even from a Jackie Chan movie. The beats are mega tough and only Wu-Tang Members are able to rhyme over those beats. This album contains hip hop classics like 'Can it be all so simple man'. This song is laced with dope piano loops and the base line is deeper than the Ocean it self. Above all the solo projects of the Wu-Tang clan members I appreciate the whole clan's work more. They form a chemistry which is never heard before in the history of the hip hop culture. RZA is multi talented person with much preciseness and he knows what fans want to hear. One of the most influential rappers of the Wu-Tang Clan is Killah Priest. Although was not featured on the most Wu-Tang albums, but his solo debut album is truly an underground classic. The productions are tight and the vocals are deep. For me the most memorable line is 'Watch hell freeze over....'.

Wu-Tang Clan has gave birth to other groups which are spin offs such as Killa Army, Sunz of Men, Royal Fam, Gravediggaz, American Cream Team and Theodore Unit as far as I know. These groups are all a great contribution to the hip hop culture. The second album of the Wu-Tang Clan is not so raw as the first one because there were too much synthesizer beats on it. However the song 'It is yours' contains a beat which is dope as uncut raw stuff.

I have been listening to Mobb Deep since they came out with their second album. This album is the most nicest album. The other albums are straight whack. The beats are produced sloppy and it has too much of the synthetic beats and it need more depths. The metaphors are really simple they do not offer anything to think about and the whole allure they got on their second album and the magic is lost.

Prodigy really chose the wrong name, because he is the most mediocre rapper coming out of Queens. His affiliate Big Noyd seems to be way head of his time only he is young. If it wasn't for the beats he would not a sell any unit. I can not imagine that Big Noyd waited since 1996 to year 2002 or something to drop his solo album. This affiliation with Mobb Deep shows his weakness for money. I think he is depending from Mobb Deep to pave his way. I had some respect for him. If he came out as a solo artist with out any affiliation with Mobb Deep. Anyway Prodigy seems not be a lyrical wonder child at all. There is only one king coming out of Queens that is Phife. I hate the fact that he call him self a Dog. I really can not see any resemblance of a dog in him. I knew a friend of my eldest cousin he used to rap. His name is Sam and this guy got skills. I think Prodigy wished that he could rhyme like this dude. Anyway he gave up rapping for a business in insurance. I am saying I know kids from hood who have way better skills that cony as rappers like Necro, Kill Bill or Prodigy. I am thinking that Mobb Deep is kind of selling out. I copped their album 'Amerikkka's nightmare'. This album also contains synthetic sounds and too much garbage kind of rock influences. I am starting to get irritated by some of the rap artists who blow up and forget the right ingredients and lose their original fan base who copped their first albums so that they can buy a Lexus.

I think there are still rappers who rhymes dope and still get nice beats from the producers, because they got their heart in the right place for the hip hop crowd. I dare that Mobb Deep make another album similar to Infamous. I think even a white girl would rap better than Prodigy on the third album called 'Murda Muzik'. I heard a song song called 'We Are The Truth' on Tradegy Khadafi's album. The hook of this song is rapped by Mobb Deep. That song spoiled the whole Khadafi's album. It sounds like a 5 years old children trying to be serious at a birthday party while Homie the clown is around. I think I need to go and cop rappers like Paul Wall and Eminem to feel Prodigy and Havoc nowadays. Then it would not be fair to compare Prodigy and Havoc with those garbage rappers. Mobb Deep really need to find more inspiration from the Infamous album. This album contains beats such as 'Give up your goods' and these are classics. Maybe Scott Free saw it all falling down through his crystal ball. That is why he would not produce another song for them on no album after.

I woke up this morning and checked out some topnotch stuff. Back in 1997 I heard the first Capone and Noreaga album. This album remains a classic. The rhymes are real street rhymes and much depth about the struggle. The song called T.O.N.Y is one of the dope songs on this album 'War Report'. Back in 2000 when I was kind of lost and wonder how to make some money. Thanks to this album I found my way.

I realized that I do not have to do what these kids go through. I realized that I have plenty of chances in this society. I did not have to sell dope. I do not have to car jack or any crime stuff these kids have to go through. Unlike other kids that use the rappers as they role models. I never did that. I only had to fight the rappers lyrically to get my name known. I am from the sub urbs. Thanks to God there is no crack, crime or anything else in my neighborhood. I am crazy about rap music. Simply I can relate to rappers from the ghetto's, because they seems to have to deal with lots of dirt. Even for the Ghetto kids they are responsible for their own destiny. I think even planets and stars can not decide for these kids to succeed in anything they do.
I compare my self with the most fortunate people on this planet and realize that I am not doing bad. I think money can make the things lot easier. First of all making it easy to make money can get you any where you want.

Back in the days people like Calvin Broadus and Minister Farrahkan was trying to band rap, because the rappers have a bad influence on the kids. I can remember that there was a bulldozer running over a bunch of cd's. This is really ridiculous, because they can not stop all the violence in the streets. They need to take the crime out of the streets, before anything. Rap is a music stream which portrait a vivid picture liver than Rembrandt about the streets. I never heard that rappers like Kool G Rap smuggled ship full of China white into States. So are these hypocrites going to stop the Hollywood producers putting out movies like Reservoir Dogs and Usual Suspects. I think rap music is not only entertainment, but also a education. For me it is like hearing the things what I do not have to do. Hearing the law books over and over again. If I hear

I have to face 7 long years in prison
that means for me that this rapper done the wrong thing and the consequence is loosing his freedom from the crime he done. I take the struggle of some rappers as examples what can happen if making the wrong choice. Even the most negative rappers can mean some sort of positive message for me. The positive thing can be the getting not involved in the crime stuff they are into. I you listen to a 'Onyx' album and do all the things they do you will be end up in prison without a doubt. What I mean is the whole responsibility is in the hand of the listener. Do not expect your parents to watch everything you do. Rather blame your self for the mistakes you made and learn form some of the rappers what to do and what not to do
