Nothing sappy here. Sorry, move along <img>
So, I’m not really embarrased to admit this, but out of all my friends only one of them can relate to me on this matter.
I like hip-hop and rap. Some artists that I’ve been listening to lately and immensely enjoying are:
Kool Keith, etc..
De La Soul
So, in that same genre of sorts, what do you guys and gals listen to? What do you think I would like? Or something completley different, but you just have that feeling that more people would like if they heard it? My fair city of Columbus actually is home to a few of the above (RJD2 and Illogic, not to mention Lil Bow Wow <img> ) and they do shows every now and then.
I’m actually going to see Kool Keith here on Thanksgiving night. Try explaining that to the family. Has anyone seen him before? What should I expect? All Kool Keith stuff? Or a mix of Dr Octo, Dr Doom and Kool Keith stuff? Or all new, restyled songs?

I grew up on hip-hop actually, punk didn’t happen for me until the 10th grade (thank you Kurt). I like:
Wu-Tang (especially Ghostface Killah)
I would recommend J5’s new one (dvd bonus is hillarious) and they KILL live. Roots Come Alive is one of the best live discs ever. Some hip-hop has a little too much misogyny and homophobia for me at times, but I still indulge from time to time…November 13, 2002 at 3:22 pm #73123
I have to admit, can’t spend my life without it: The Roots, Eryka Bahdu, Mary J. Blidge, Otis Redding… Have any of you seen the movie "Brooklyn Babylon" ? (I guess this is related to The Roots…) Another good must-see.November 13, 2002 at 10:36 pm #73124

There was a group here called the Dream Warriors, I don’t know if they’re still around. Plus Choclair, plus, yes, I forgot about DJ Shadow. Plus Amon Tobin (a.k.a "Cujo"), plus The KLF who did this freaky ambient album called "The White Room." Plus Missy Elliot has something good (the video blows my mind). Plus Yvon KrevÃ©; ‘maman’, this is the first time I ever outright cried when I heard a song. Plus DJ’s Kwite Sane +guests, who have this really good show on CKUT 90.3 FM called "Masters At Work."
