    If would suck if we all liked the same things.

    Anyways..

    I didn't actually like the Jadakiss LP when I gave it a quick listen in Virgin Megastore a while ago, but I think I need to give it a proper go.

    Recently I've been rocking to new 'ish from Lloyd Banks, Terror Squad, J-Kwon, Twista, Method Man, Petey Pablo, N.O.R.E, and Beastie Boys :slayer:

    I've even been checking Usher's recent album too, top stuff (y)

    Lil' Jon, Track Boys, Track Masters, and Neptunes own :spliff:

    2 be honest I've steered clear of the 'New Wave' of artist's coming from America at the mo because I ain't feeling them. BUt bring me some Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Outkast, Roots, Method Man & Xzibit & I'll buy you lunch!! Have also been getting into alot of UK artist's& belive there is some talent here. K-lashnekoff's album is the fucking shit, 'Black Rose' is awsome, + artists like Jehst, & Harry Love are bringing the goods. SURPRISE wicked tuneage! :slick:

    lol! dont get me wrong i love my roots- its all about the old skool! artists like Big Daddy Kane, J5, Wu Tang Clan, De La Soul, Gang Starr, Eric B & Rakim, Notorious BIG, Mobb Deep.
    Can't believe not many of y'all like nu rap, i didnt used to but u gotta keep up with the times imo.
    As for UK rap, any1 like Skinnyman? He's got mad skills. I see he's got a nu album out.

    MF Doom is the bollox IMO

    Can't really get into most new rap, Eminem and D12 in particualr really get on my tits. Their backing tunes are so tacky.

    Going back to Jadakiss, the Lil Jon remix of 'Kiss Of Death' is heavy :slayer:

    Totally admire Mr Jon's production skills (y)

    The only one in there I really ain't feeling is J-Kwon.. Prolly cos his voice just grates me, really whiney annoying "oh my gosh, I got a fake ID, so I go into a club for a little drinkie, hock diggity damn, I just saw some fanny, then I trek to the toilet cos I well need a pee" kinda shit thats about as shallow as poetry by Jodie Marsh.

    I really really used to dislike hiphop, but only cos I heard what radio1/mtv want you to hear, as soon as I started to dig a little deeper, and found the likes of Klashnekoff, Taskforce and the like, I started to understand where it was coming from..
