With all the music discussed here, I was just curious if anyone here was into hip-hop and rap. I'm sure most board members frown upon the style, but I can't be the only one here who doesn't hate it. Please no thread-crapping with rap bashing. Thanks. For me, hip-hop isn't a focus of my music collecting and listening. Jazz/blues and rock will always be my mainstays, followed by classic. I only have a few hip-hop albums and want to get more. As of now, I'm into Gang Starr and Guru, Public Enemy, The Roots, and DJ Shadow, Jurassic 5 as well as some old-school. My favorite group is Public Enemy. I just love their huge sound and Chuck D's voice and lyrics. I haven't heard their more recent material, though. I recently started getting into The Roots. They make some interesting music. Possibly my favorite single hip-hop album right now is Guru's Jazzmataz, where he duets with jazz musicians. What are you guys kickin' it to?
