That was some knowlage dropped on me by my buddy who went to UCSC for a while, Nickatina's greatness is far reaching my brother! I love the stuff he did with Mac Dre, Andre 'N Andre is one of my favorite tracks.

Nice Wigs, yeah i listen to Sage Francis too, but i got into B.A. first so i get that style fix up from in instead of like you with the vice versa, Cunning lynguist is one savage dude, his lyrics are visceral and real. Lot of good hip hop we're getting into here. Acid Rain Drops is a key song. I saw People Under The Stairs for their fifteen anniversary show at the El Rey in Los Angeles, They played like 4-5 songs from each album all the hits mind you. Not very much of the new stuff but what a show man. It went wild when they did AcidRainDrops.

Its good that people out of the east coast and midwest know sage francis, brother ali is okay but you need to listen to eyedea and abilities and atmosphere if you like ali.

definitlly, getting into atmosphere got me into sage , ali and e & a.......hate to play that "i used to listen when....." card.... but a buddy of mine came to my college in 2000 and he was from the twin cities and he was repping overcast pretty hard...that became our party album that year....been a fan since!...it was a good year cuz i had another buddy from boston and he was repping 7l and esotoric, and i got into them pretty hard

Atmosphere is dope too.
God loves ugly - Yesterday



Nujabes is good also if you like really complex beats.

Great to hear what fellow hip hop fans are listening too. Totally agree with Cunning Lynguists, Ali, Jedi mind tricks, atmosphere,7l and esoteric and all the others. If you like jedi check out army of the pharoahs. Good ****.

Anybody listen to Ya Boy? Check out some of his freestyles- 100 bars of crack or 100 bars of death, shook ones freestyle.

What's great about this thread is nobody is mentioning that mainstream crap. People that say rap is garbage now are not looking hard enough. There is so much talent out there its ridiculous

Ya boy is an interesting rapper, he really talented but hes just not putting much out lately. He's a local guy and ive met him in person a few times in vallejo... but oddly enough out here in the bay he doesnt get much appreciation even though hes out there.

On the song Superstar(by ya boy) my cousin Taj directed the video
