Onyx rules, I love that screwface shit.
@H.P. Lovecraft this is ridiculously old school.
Oh dear... legitimately good though.
It works because they seem genuine.
I concur, admittedly I was a smidgen worried when it was just 20 or 30 seconds them repeating the song's name. I was pleasantly surprised. Guys have have some superb flow.
It's an actual beat too (a decent one at that), not the clicky typewriter autism that seems to have infected modern rap.
This is fun, especially if it's your first introduction to Chip Fu when he comes in with the 2nd verse:
Also, I've discovered some more female rappers I like:
Not bad for something recorded while drunk, haha:
Shadowcast didn't have much of a role in his only single. Though he's the white guy who also recorded as Biggy Smallz as a squeaky kid before some other dude came along calling himself Biggie Smalls.
What's everyone's favourite rap album(s)?
Bloodhound Gang - One Fierce Beer Coaster
Group X - 40 Oz. Slushie
Onyx - All We Got Iz Us
Wu-Tang Clan - Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)
Dam Native - Kaupapa Driven Rhymes Uplifted
Fu-Schnickens - Nervous Breakdown
Ultramagnetic MC's - Critical Beatdown
These guys are great:
I thought they were a rock group with some rap influences. Did they record a legitimate rap album or something?
Awesome list. I love Ultramagnetic MC's especially from this list.
Bloodhound Gang has quite the genre-bending history. Jimmy and Daddy made a demo as an electronic 2-piece called Bang Chamber 8, playing Depeche Mode-style shit. Then Bloodhound Gang started out as a hip-hop group, although they often used samples of rock songs. Their debut full length has 2 rock covers (1 of a TV theme song, haha), but the other 10 songs are basically all hip-hop.
Then One Fierce Beer Coaster is where they ran with the rap/rock band idea. Yeah, it's not a hip-hop album, but about 60% of it is rapping and some of my favourite rapping at that. There's a Run-DMC cover and a guest appearance from Vanilla Ice.
Since then they've dialled back the rock to make room for a lot of electronic/dance stuff, but sometimes they're rapping over the top of that as well:
