my friend and i were having a debate on whether hip hop is a genre run by a black power movement
i believe that there are some really good rappers out there like aesop rock and immortal technique, slug, etc. who are good. but even so they dont really sound that white. are there any good ones that are serious that sound like a white dude?
Chuck Norris has the greatest Poker-Face of all time. He won the 1983 World Series of Poker, despite holding only a Joker, a Get out of Jail Free Monopoly card, a 2 of clubs, 7 of spades and a green #4 card from the game UNO.
Come on NS how have you not mentioned Mad Child from Swollen Members? I thought all of you were swollen for his member....
anyways, ones that haven't been mentioned as far as my shitty memory serves me:
-Sweatshop Union (most of them)
-Sabzi from Blue Scholars (he makes the beats idk if that counts)
-Collie Buddz (more dancehall but still def. raps)
-Michael Franti (he started out in a Hip Hop group called Disposable Heroes of Hiphopracy)
This annoys me so much, you're not naming rappers (except Eminem he's a rapper), you're naming hip-hop artists, and yes it's a black power controlled thing because we created it, oh yeah Lil Wyte is a sick white rapper but suburban kids weren't allowed to listen to gangsta muzik growing up so all they had were those encylopedia reciting, nerd-rappers
YES!!! whit jewish rapper who made his first album while attending Brown University. I love his stuff. And the fact that he got Prince Paul to produce "Paullelujah" is beyond me, but that cd is so great
