If you were trying to introduce someone to rap...........
« on: October 23, 2005, 09:14:37 AM »
what album would you give them?

For me it would either be The Chronic or Midnight Marauders depending on what other music the person likes, if there into aggressive stuff then obviously the Chronic, if they're mostly coming from a jazz/r&b background then Midnight Marauders

I know a lot of people would say Illmatic, but honestly I would never use it to get someone into rap.  Illmatic is an amazing album if your already a rap fan, but for someone who's never listened to rap before, it's not that appealing.

How about you guys?

you got a point with Illmatic, but I donŽt see The Chronic as incredibly aggressive...some of it is, but depends on the song. If someone wanted to listen to hiphop for really aggressive stuff IŽd give them "Warriorz" or "Bacdafucup"...however, in general:

The Marshall Mathers LP, All Eyez On Me, Reasonable Doubt, The Score, Doggystyle, Life After Death, Wu-Tang Forever and a whole buncha others, tight albums that are easy to get into, have good production and a certain pop appeal

Mecca & The Soul Brother, The Low End Theory, De La Soul Is Dead, The Listening, J5 LP and other stuff that is smooth, well-done and not too aggressive if the person wasnŽt into hearing about guns, whips n bitches

The Chronic, We Come Strapped, Safe & Sound, ATLiens, Aquemini, The Fix etc for somebody looking for the really melodic stuff

but it all depends on the person...maybe somebody tryina get into hiphop would immidiately fall in love with cLOUDDEAD or Urban Thermo Dynamics and not care about Dr. Dre for a second...

DJ Quik

I've gotten friends who don't even lock rap music but love DJ Quik's music. I'd recommend Rhythmalism. The musical feel of the album is easy on the ears for non hip hop heads.

I would introduce them to Run-DMC, The Beastie Boys, Eric B & Rakim, Public Enemy, Mos Def and DJ Quik. That's the only artists I listen to regularly anymore really.

Most hip-hop is now keyboard driven, because the majority of hip-hop workstations have loops and patches that enable somebody with marginal skills to put tracks together,...

Unfortunately, most hip-hop artists gravitated towards the path of least resistance by relying on these pre-set patches. As a result, electric guitar and real musicians became devalued, and a lot of hip-hop now sounds the same.

depends on the person and what type of hip hop your trying to get to them

if you want to introduce to just pure hip hop then something like illmatic
if you want to introduce them to some party stuff something like doggystyle or legal drug money
if you want to introduce them to a more mature sound something like midnight maurauders or common...

your best bet is to give them a little bit of everything

Depends on what they like. If they listen to laid back/stoner music then  E. 1999 Eternal. If they're interested in the lyrics then  Me Against the World. If they like great production then  Safe+Sound, Rythm-al-ism, or The Chronic. If they aren't easily affended and just like great music then Death Certifacte.

heres what i did for someone.

start em off with something not to lyrical, but lots of technique and good beats. eg. Bone Thugs.
Next, something with good beats and a little substance, but not necessarily the best technique. eg. DJ Quik. Then drop the classics on em, Illmatic, Reasonable Doubt, the ones that everybody wanna hear. After that, they'll probably be into hip hop enough that they can make their own decsions on what they wanna listen to.
