Well, I'd usually consider the title an oxymoron, but I remember Soul_of_Korea promised in another thread that some non-pop rap is good. I listened to some bands that some people consider good and couldn't find but a very few songs I like. The best of them would have to have been Outkast's Bombs over Baghdad.
At any rate, if any of you rap fans can list just a few songs that are worth checking out that are (very) fast paced with at least some background music that is decent and that isn't only someone talking then I would very much appreciate it. I don't care much for lyrical talent ...

I like older rap music, hate the new stuff, check out NAS and A Tribe Called Quest, most people like those, really good. Also Mobb Deep, I'm a HUGE fan of them.

You'd probably like the RATM remix of B.O.B. I'll make a full list later.
You only need 2 albums Wu-tang (liquid swords) and NWA (Straight Outta Compton)
Current: 5'8 165lbs
I like stuff by common, the roots, black star, pharcyde, camp lo, k-os, and a few others.

"He who fights monsters should see to it that in the process, he does not
become a monster. And when you look into the abyss, the abyss also looks into
you." - Nietzche
i think the way they come up with spelling their names and song titles is more entertaining than the music

Liquid swords was by the GZA, not Wu-Tang. Maybe you're talking about 36 Chambers? That CD is badass.Originally Posted by Drheckler
