Live rap is usually disapointing.
For the most part, rap music is usually recorded in a pretty mellow voice or a settled un strained voice, but when they preform live they sound like there getting anal raped and bob the builder wants them to sing there songs. Ew.
You hear like fifty cent who is shitty already, and he sounds sooo bad live. I can only think that Zion 1, Immortal technique, kanye west and maybe nas sound good live. Dont waste your money on any other rap concerts.
i hate kayne west, but he is good live...so is zion 1 and blackalicious.
the game and snoop dogg werent very good. if you actually go for the "music"
I was watching football and the black eyed peas sound like a squeaky tire live
yeah!! i was watching that too....they really suck live...that guy with the sunglasses screwed up
very true if you are talking about lots of mainstream. very wrong if you are talkinga bout real hip hop and underground. hieroglyphics crew, ghostface, living legends are some of the many amazing rappers live

Rap in general sucks, but if you go to a hip hop show, for example atmosphere, or josh martinez, it's dope.
Hiero is the best show i have ever seen in my life, but i do have alot of fav artists i haven't seen that i want to really bad, that im sure will be just as dope.
a comment like this: Live rap is usually disapointing, tells me you don;t know jack shit about good hip hop.
I feel sorry for you.
Yeah it's always disappointing when someone gets shot.
Roots are insane live.. maybe mainstream gangster rap is lame.. but hip hop shines during live shows.
what do you do at a rap show? ska kids skank, hardcore kids throwdown, punk rockers mosh, what do rap kids do?
i saw living legends the other day, so fucking amazing. it was my first live hip hop show ever, and it set a very high standard
fuckin rights bro, living legends are phat. lucky you, that musta been amazing.
Siiick. I wanna see LL so bad, i would also like to see grouch, murs, luckyiam solo.
and for what you do at a hip hop show, i guess you just bump to the beat, and spit back the lyrics, feel the music.
That's what i do anyway.
^ so its not jsut a room full of people break dancing?
haven't been to too many hip hop shows but from what i've seen, they like to change up the lyrics a bit which i think is pretty cool
they really suck not live too.
Ludacris was pretty sweet live. The songs he did featuring other people were pretty lame though since he just pre recorded their voices but he was rapping so it was cool.
if you wanna see good live hip hop go see Lyrics Born, The Roots, Gift of Gab, Crown City Rockers, Living Legends, Outerspace, Slug, & Aesop Rock all put on a good live show.
Roots are awesome live.. also, i saw Talib Kweli and MF Doom in a little club (Suede.. the club that is featured in Pop Yer Bottlez) and let me tell you all... it was OFF THE HOOK. Also, i saw Black Eyed Peas, and N.E.R.D in a little club right after Elefunk came out. That was honestly one of the most memorable shows i have ever been to. It was awesome
I'd have to say that J5, Atmosphere, hieroglyphics, and Jedi Mind Tricks sound pretty damn good live
maybe because rappers arent real musicians, they just killed their way to the top. if you want to see good live stuff get how the west was won by led zeppelin
^your just fuckin pathetic. another typical clucker mothafucker. I smell a squid.
i saw jedi minds live and they fuckin sucked. i left early. i like seeing local emcees. chadio and caspian from vancouver are ill.
The only live hip hop I've seen that was good, was the gift of gab.
Kayne West looks like a squirrel preparing for the winter season. What a tool.
DUDE.... WHO!?!?!? MIKE JONES!!!!! SOUNDS SO GOOD LIVE ITS NOT EVEN FUNNY!!
I've been to a few hiphop/rap shows and they all sucked ass with one exception:
GIFT OF GAB
There is something about the way that dude flows. I'm not a huge fan of rap, but shit he put on a good show. His voice just bounces and flows so well with the beats. Plus he freestyled for like 5 minutes and it was amazing. He's fat as hell though, I kept getting pushed into him during the show because he took up so much of the stage.
rap shows i've been amazed by live:
-gift of gab
brother ali was especially amazing, so much energy in that show, fucking awesome
yeah i heard bro alis shows are wild
talib is horrrrrible live!
yup..ive seen him 2 times and both times he had no stage presence at al.
people i have seen live
jedi mind tricks
almost all of these guys had several guests as well
there are a lot of other good hip-hop out there check out guru and eyedea and abilities and digable planets and roots manuva and roni size and reprazent. lord tariq and peter gunz and also masta ace.
i've seen atmosphere live 8 times.
and i haven't been disappointed yet.
there are very very few rap shows that i have been disappointed by, and i've been to a LOT of shows.
go and get yourself to a smaller, intimate venue and see someone decent, i guarantee you will change your mind.
there are far more groups that have these elements.....isnt it common knowledge (atleast in NS) that hip hop isn't just mainstream shit?
fuck i forgot J5, that was fucking amazing live
I've only been to two hip hop shows and both were flat out amazing. Both the shows were in a little bar and only about 40 people showed up. The first was a bunch of people including Aceyalone and Abstract Rude, fucking awesome show. The second was One Be Lo aka one man army from binary star. This show was also incredible. Hip hop shows with good hip hop are so cool because you get to see the rapper actually spit all the dope lines that you've heard on the album. To see them actually get into it and get the crowd into it is crazy.
Seen common, kanye, and de la soul live. I thought all were awesome cause they had so much energy and kanye put on such a good show. I also saw rahzel and he was fucking crazy.
ya i have herd reely good things about blackalicious in concert
yeah dude there was a blackalicious and zion i show here on the 9th and it was so dope, fucking awesome
BBC crew was sick. mcenroe, pip skid, buncha vann cats. one of the better shows i've seen.
i'm goin' to The Crest in 2 hours, kinda local Madison hip-hop, really good shows though, should be dope
^The Crest is so fucking sick. They're some of the best lyricists I've heard in a long time.
shit man i just got back from that show, they started right after a showing of Tangerine Dream and it was dope. Lots of freestyles and dope rhymes, definitely kept me entertained... if The Crest ever comes into your town, go to the show, you won't be disappointed
immortal technique seems like he would be amazing live
i dont think you can comment on the entire genre you've obviously never been to an underground show...
and dont even get me started on the genius of beastie boys live
ya they are sick Talib Kweli was sick in concert. o, and by the way, It's Zion I not Zion 1
ive seen talib 4 times and he was only good once (had backup singers). the perceptionists and LL's were the best live shows ive seen.
agreed, i saw ludacris, and he wasn't even trying hard, they don't really take it as serious as other music.
luda just doesn't fucking count.
All times are Eastern (-4)
