    could work but who knows?
    this sort of thing people get scared about doing cos they dont wanna shake the boat too much, but i reckon it could work.
    especially nowadays where the mc is taking a more central roll in dnb they might as well be good mc's that dont babble.

    i know of a few 'amature' mcs that do hip hop and also dabble in dnb.
    look forward to hearin a rodney p/ skitz/ tali/ det/ wolftown/ wu tang/ dillinja/ bad co. mash up!!!

    dnb and hip hop do belong together.

    MC's are supposed to hype up the crowd, and I think that it wouldn't work very well, the MC'n would turn like garage MC'n??!!?! Just a thought.

    it can sound good...zincs done things with hiphop mcing as well which are alrite...
    it can make things a bit more varied though - fresh soundz n all that instead of the same old chats from all the dnb regulars

    Yeah, fer enuf, but these are just remixes of excisting hip hop tunes.....**scratches head**.......me thinks...!!!
    Anyway, the starting point of this thread, was me attempting to mix "Fuk Dat" by onyx with some dnb....

    It might sound lame, but Sticky Fingas voice overt a fat bass (at 176..aight?!) its all you need to start a riot...
    Opinions???

    there ARE alot of hip hop remixes by dnb producers. but all of the collabs that i mentioned were done with the rapper and producer in the studio together... making the song from scratch. most recently being the hive/busdriver track that is soon to be released.

    i dont know... maybe it's because i'm in NY, but around here MC's who try to chat like skibba dont get any recognition. in my area, there is a very fine line between the hip hop scene and the dnb scene. most of the people you see at a hip hop night, you will also see at a dnb night.

    the most popular MC's are the guys who slow it down and excersise some lyrical ability. battle skills, metaphors and flow are a must for any MC that i would want to hear. if there is a wannabe UK, chatty prick on the mic, i get tempted to leave. as do alot of people that i know. adding a hip hop element to dnb is the one of the only things us stateside cats can do help give the USA it's own style. y'know?

    @ grip..
    Yeah man, thats excactly what i'm talking bout....
    Gotta respect the US scene...To be honest i'm very jealous of the stuff thats been played in the states..Tech Itch, Dom & Roland, Dylan, all UK producers, but your more likely to catch them stateside...Plus most of Us DJ play far better tunes..more like the UK ones few years earlier..
    Mason rox:slayer:
    Hive....no comments....
    Ohm Resistance crew = the future
    Dieselboy....THE best DJ on this world

    Actually...fak it man! i think i'm gonna move to Philly next year...
    Anyways, yeah-hip hop mc inna dnb is the shit....c ya
