    No Doubt started as a Ska band (mash-up of reggae and punk). So it was a reggae influence rather than a hip-hop influence but hell starting in the late 90s everybody was throwing a little hiphop into their sound.

    I think in america, You will find it under Punk, just like you will find drake under rap/ hip-hop next to the wiz kalifa, the willow smith, and Run's son

    Music changes, it was more punk for a while. (especially if you include global bands

    Anyways, I find Gwens' music to have more meaning behind it, this chick is ok for now

    depends on the record store...bigger chains have never had a ska section. alot of them dont even have a punk section it'll generally be listed as rock.

    yo. who got that new TIP mixtape? shit go hard.
    :u
  • NandoNando 1337 Joined: Posts: 3,530
    Right
    and I could care less... I didn't know it had a jamican back ground but it got fused with punk music (bands like SkA- P)

    Which brings my back to point of Hip-hop -Rap not being diverse enough
    the difference between those 2 if there was one is gone to me

    Yes, my wife and I would both smash chick.

    On topic, Hip-Hop is dead. Rap is too broad of a genre. It's too varied. There is no template for what rap should be anymore. You got garbage niggas leading the sales and dope niggas spending 3 months to go gold on an album that's been anticipated for however many years. A nigga like muffinhands Aubrey or J.Victim doesn't deserve to be in the same category as a Joe Budden or Saigon or Kendrick Lamar or even Jim Jones.

    Real shit, we need to set up some fucking sub-genres for this shit. Do like rock did with metal, death-metal, black-metal, alternative, punk, indie, etc.

    Theyre all boring. Drake, Saigon, Budden, all of them. There is nothing youll hear in a rap song that hasnt been said a million times in a million ways. Thats why its dead. Honestly, shit needs a break for like 3 or 4 years.

    karmin can get it. fuck. i will find this girl and wife her....shes from mass and i want to put it in her sooo badly lol.

    gwen stefani never really incorperated hip hop into her style really. i think black people just have a serious no doubt guilty pleasure...plus those eve joints def helped haha.

    watching that karmin vid makes me hear alot of gwen in her.
    WHAAAAT?

    Off the top of my head.. Gwen Stefani has worked with Swizz Beatz, Damien Marley, Sean Garrett, Eve, Lady Saw, Pharrell, Slim Thug, Andre 3000, Akon, Dr. Dre, Dallas Austin, Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis. Sampling Isley Brothers and Louchie & Mitchie?

    Both her solo albums give me a white girl whos influenced by hip hop. Dont sleep on Gwen, she OG white girl. She even dresses like a chola sometimes. Fergie's just now getting her stripes.

    I think the sub-genre idea is actually a good idea. I don't mind Nicki Minaj doing her thing, just don't pass it off as hip-hop.

    Sadly this also might be the case. I said in the old thread that hip-hop might have to fall back like Jazz, and Blues did and let a new genre emerge. The problem is society is so homogenized now that I don't even know if we are even capable of creating something new and fresh.

    There's nothing left at the point to say that hasn't been said a million times. Joe Budden at least stays current by rapping about current events. Throwing punchlines related to the NBA lockout, niggas going to jail, new movies, etc. lol.

    I think we need to start scrutinizing and funneling talent more we need to do more scribble jams, djing contest , poetry slams etc. if we do that then shit will get way better instead diluting our shit lets purify it. We live in the age were research and communication is at an all time high it's easier to make a dj or rap contest now than ever. If all the major blogs created tournaments that are purely freestyle and did poetry jams n shit niggas would learn how to be better song writers and better des with an ear for beats and growth. Niggas could make a hip hop evo if they wantedk

    shit i dont hear many rappers rap about their pcp addiction and depression (Budden) and Saigon doesnt even rap about violent shit anymore (for better or worse)


    to ME... its not WHAT theyre rapping about.. but HOW they do it. Gibbs raps about the stereotypical rap topics (drugs guns hoes etc) but the way he does it and how he phrases it lyrically is what makes him special.


    edit: i mean shit... OBVIOUSLY everything has already been rapped about. if you wanna hear some outlandish shit you never thought of go listen 2 canibus lol

    Eh, I've never been bored of Rap. You just have to listen to other genres. There is only so much you can diversify in one genre, hell that is why it is a genre. You could say this for any of them. Who is really innovating a genre right now?

    ^True. I'm into whatever catches my ear, so I haven't soured on anything just yet. If I was a true "insert genre here" head, I bet I'd be at a dead end too (I shred through music). I think you just have to switch things up a bit and come back.

    IMHO Beasties deserves a spin or two.
    karmin can get it. fuck. i will find this girl and wife her....shes from mass and i want to put it in her sooo badly lol.
    I don't think Karmin is her name but the group's. And you know her producer is her fiancé right? Lol. She bad tho but to get her you might have to play more instruments than him. And in that All of the Lights vid he plays like 6 things lol

    why didn't you before? He had me last year at Look Out for Detox.

    There were some mixed receptions on that beat personally I loved it. But in the age of pounding kicks, light 808 snaps are out and some found tge horn to be annoying. I think they failed to realize that his wording and bobbing & weaving through the horns is why.

    The first time I heard anything from him was the BET Cyphers, and I was impressed but not blown away. I actually took time to listen to his music today and my respect grew.

    Yeah there are very similar styles but the difference is skill level. Show me someone who can flow as good as Gibbs TODAY.. ill post proof to back up youll have a hard time to find people to compare.

    and what are the standout tracks on the T.I. tape? I DLd it but wasnt feeling it through initial run-through

    He acts like a real person and like an artist
    Sometimes it for the fans other times its to branch out... Sometimes he gets pissed people don't like his music too, lol
    Bank$ says shyt then people copy it for years, word for word or replace a word.
    Yayo doesn't hold shyt back and says what a lot of rappers are afraid to say (mainly cuz he did put in work, lol)

    A lot of people just go with what they are told to listen to, not surprising.

    Son streets of rage intro is arguably one of the greatest video game songs of all time . It had that 90s action movie feel along with that house feel thrown into It.
