*Ice Cube ft Krayzie Bone - Until We Rich
*Nas ft Lake - Revolutionary Warfare (Mainly the lyrics in later half of the track)
*2Pac - My Block Remix (I also agree)
*Ras Kass ft Jazze Pha - It Is What It Is (The beat plays a large role in getting me thinking with this one)

Atmosphere-Woman with the tattood hands

Thankyou...finally somebody mentions that...that has the best lines of a song i have ever heard...i will always remember these words:

"on the right hand she had a tattoo of a nude girl, she claimed it is what God resembled, but on the left she had a mirrored image of the same female, and this one she explained looked like the devil"

that shit gave me goosebumps and sent me into a state of thought for like 3 days the first time i heard that...probably the best song of this sort ever made.

Makaveli - Blasphemy

the whole song had me like woah

"we prolly in hell already, our dumb asses not knowin
everybody kissin ass to go to heaven aint goin"

"I leave this & hope God can see my heart is pure
is heaven just another door..."
"House shoes & coffee: I know the paper gone come"

I downloaded "Woman With The Tattooed Hands" awhile ago and I'd have to say that that was Atmosphere's last chance with me.  Slug was just not born to rap, if he's a good writer he should write a book or something cause he's sounds so shitty on the mic.  Nerd rap has to be one of the worst things to happen to hip-hop.

what makes it nerd rap? just because he's not comin with bullshit? its originality...something you rarely find in hip hop nowadays...shit like atmosphere & buck 65...the shit that takes some time to like is the shit that keeps me loving hip hop. but just because its not coming with some PIMP bullshit doesnt mean its "Nerd Rap"

Ooh, there are a lot. I like tracks that make me think, but it''s getting more difficult to find ''em these days. My list:
"Live your Life" by Cormega.
"Gangsta Madness'' by Above the Law.
''Comin' after you" by MC Ren and Ice Cube.
"Evil'' by Paris.
"Son of a Bush'' by Public Enemy.
The only way you can fuck with me, is in a orgy.

i listen to  a lot of "weird" hip-hop, often considered nerd-rap aswell, but slug is really a horible rapper, hes original, but seriously, hes a horible rapper

"lookt in my reflection YES, im superfly, as i could guess again"

"go to hell girl u make me sick, i hope u do a boy with cancer in his dick"

shiit those are just horible lyrics

i give him props for being original and creative, and for having his own style, but his lyrics straight suck

what makes it nerd rap?

I don't like to stereotype but...

He's a nerd, he raps
He appeals to nerds, who like rap [size=0.25](I'd say this applies to atleast 90% of his fans)[/size]

It's that easy.

...shit like atmosphere & buck 65...

And that Buck 65 is on some really fucked up shit.  Just cause he's original doesn't make him good.  I downloaded "The Centaur" (one great song) so I decide to download some other tracks off Vertex and good god is he horrible, he barely even raps and with that horrible flow comes his even worse voice that make him almost unlistenable.

I couldn't possibly disagree more.. Slug's one of the greatest rappers ever and his lyrics are far from wack.. sayin he just sounds shitty is nothin but ignorant, if yall don't like his voice or flow that's ur taste then, it's not like he doesn't have a flow at all or anything like that, which could justify sayin he shouldn't rap

if u don't like his slow flow try tracks like 'One Of A Kind'
