Alright, so, due to a decrease in both my level of Offspring fandom/admiration and just these boards in general I haven't hung out in these parts in a minute. I do miss being part of a forum though, and there really isn't any other one I can think of that I'd want to join, so I thought I'd try it back here and see how I go. One of my favourite threads of old was the hip hop one that disappeared for whatever reason at whatever time, and since it was such a solid read I thought I'd bring the beat back.
Any hip hop discussion welcome. Who's dope, who's wack, who're the all time greats, what's good of what's currently out/coming out, y'know all the like! A few favourites top of my head would include CunninLynguists, Gang Starr, Nas, Mos Def, Tonedeff, Masta Ace, Eminem, Dr. Dre, Wu-Tang, Hilltop Hoods, Pharoahe Monch, Royce Da 5'9", Black Milk, J Dilla, Marco Polo... and a whole lot of etcs to follow.
Eminem's always a popular one... what's he up to at the moment? Relapse 2's supposedly coming this year. Wasn't too big on Relapse 1 but from what I've heard he's taking it in a different direction, and if his verses on "Forever" and Lil Wayne's "Drop the World" are any indication of that said direction I'll be stoked to hear it.
Looking forward to the next Nas album, a collaborative with Damian Marley. As We Enter, first song leaked from it, is certified dopeness.
And that'll do me for now. Go go go!
