as you likely have gathered chali 2na is hands down my fav hip hop artist. today i have had a track in my head all day and now im finally listening to it and im just lovin it. the song is "ghetto diplomat" from the J5 J5 album by chali 2na of course. but yeah the first time i heard it it was catchy and all but not that mind blowing. now as i have had it stuck in my head and have been listening to it lately its simply one of the solid gold tracks that rarely come along. dang the beat is so sick and the lyrics and flow and the way the beat cuts in and out and just smoothly rolls is so sick! anyway give it a few listens and you will love it.
K so because im so behind i need to keep things short as always.
U2. one of my fav bands ever. a track that most dont know is van diemans land i would suggest watching it on the helter skelter dvd that they have on you tube. anyway the how to dimantal an atomic bomb is a great album one of my top 5... maybe. miracle drug awesome song maybe just cuz i used ot listen to it wile i snowboarded.
tom pettys greatest hits. just awesome. he is a suprising consistant artist also if you can catch his barried treasure show its great but i could only find it on my sat radio.
the maytones- brown girl in the ring. that is where J5 got the original from. listen to both.
tanya stephens- great reggae artist chic. pretty good suprised to find that the hole albums typically were good not just specific songs only i cant say it yet cuz i have not listened of all songs. warn dem is a great track.
citizen cope- cool aritst im sure you already know him. call me a fad follower but sons gonna rise is still my fav track.
again i think i already mentioned this slightly stoopid "acoustic live and direct" its and amazing live album you should listen to it maybe it will work its way into my top 5 its awesome. love the guns and roses cover.
rebelution- dont know these guys to well but ordinary girl is a great song its also there most popular.
the roots. great hip hop artists my fav album is game theory but i picked up a few more i have not had much time to listen to but you can get game theory at the OP and 2 other of there albums.
big daddy kane. if you like old school rap this is one of the originals. great stuff really the kind of stuff that got me into hip hop in the first place.
kings of convienince- sorry to do this but havent really listend to them much but pretty cool souunding artist so far check them out
collie buds- i think drew listened to them before he left but they are pretty good. i picked them up cuz i heard a couple of tracks on the kya bamba cds i have (KYA BAMBA A MUST GET-already talked about them) i absolutely love the fusion of reggae and hip hop i think it is so sick hard to find the good end of this though
if you want something just pure gangster listen to "bloods and crips bangin on wax" album. havent listend to it to much cuz im trying to listen to good music but yeah domino is on that album and im having such a hard time getting any of his albums.
lucked out in finding a big "pixar" music package including a bugs life cars monsters inc and toy story and finding nemo and i think thats it. finding nemo soundtrack is solid but the tracks are more specific to the film so they are smaller and not as good independant but still not bad. monsters inc is just a shwanky awesome album i guess its really praised in the music world. kind of dig the jazzy up feeling. but still one of my fav film scores is kung fu panda. its certainly worht getting. cars turned out pretty good. i saw dispicalbe me the other nigh and i need to get that film score it was kind of interesting. good movie.
so as you know i love the song "stop that train" by peter tosh look up the acoustic version on you tube its really amazing.
please comment on who you like or dont
and do you like names of artists or specific track titles?
