De La Soul
A Tribe Called Quest

Love all of the Native Tongues groups. Black Sheep as well. 3 Feet high and Rising is one of my all time favorite albums, regardless of genre.

What do you like about it? Do you identify with the rappers personally and the lifestyle? Do the lyrics do it for you?

I am in my late thirties and I have sampled it all from Too Short to Tupac to 2 Chainz. Aside from a couple of poppier or mainstream Outkast songs I just don't get it.

Am I missing something? Or should I just stick to my Depeche Mode, New Order, and Editors CD's




Good beats make me wanna move to the beat.

If, say, "feel me flow" were bumping right now, I'd be popping and locking as I typed this.

it's about the beat and the pace of the song. all genres have a chorus with a few verses that usually do some form of rhyming. a country singer could sing a rap song and a rapper could rap a country song. the lyrics don't mean that much

I appreciate when a dude has almost a solid minute of great rhymes/lines. Creative talent.


I hope you are not serious...
