Greetings folks! Any hip hop fans out there in the community? Use this thread to discuss and share links/videos or some of your favorite artists/producers.
For me personally, my latest musical endeavor, Arithmetik, is what i’d call electro hiphop/soul, so I’m definitely inspired by the boom bap era. Being from Brooklyn, NY and now residing in Atlanta, GA, I have been exposed to the east coast style for years.
Nas, Biggie, Dilla, Pete Rock, Nightmares On Wax Immortal Technique, Mos Def, 9th Wonder are a few that are always in rotation for me.
I’m big into the more conscious wave of artists like Immortal Technique, Talib Kweli, and KRS-One.
Huge fan of lofi as well, would love some recommendations.
A good friend of mine, and a cat I went to high school with, Russ, has been putting out great material for the past few years, and really has taken the world by storm.
Here are a few of my favorite tracks at the moment::
