    So a while back, I came across this album by C Y G N and really liked it, especially tracks like Wop and Day to Day.
    I'm looking to build up my music library with more of this lo-fi, hip hop style, hence this thread, post your favourites here!

    C Y G N - Labyrinth of Mirrors (Name your Price)

    I have no idea what youre going on about Steve, but J Dilla had a phase of this style of hip hop late 90s, listen to the Slum Village - Fantastic Vol 2 album, you could spend hours going through Dillas 90s stuff, always find stuff you've never heard before

    Lots of Lo-Fi beatmakers publish their 'beat tapes' on YT labeled as that.

    Example of what I really dig is:


    Suggestions do wonders. Hope this is what you're looking for.
