I have almost the entire catalogue of Stones Throw (except some of the wack shit Madlib has done lately). Donuts is definitely a classic.

What about Ninja Tune? They have a lot of really good artists.

Also, I don't know if it counts as a classic, but Drift by Nosaj thing definitely should count because it's fantastic. Views/Octopus is also quite good.

Are you familiar with Lemon Jelly? They have a few albums that are awesome. What about Little People? Mickey Mouse Operation is great. Again, I'm not sure if they're classics, but they're really good.

That samples Wu-Tang, but are you looking for similar instrumentals? Maybe some early Pete Rock, Illa J, or Peanut Butter Wolf.

I'm not Sekhem but I can contribute. I'd recommend DJ Cam - Underground Vibes if you like it jazzy. I'd also recommend Jazzmatazz Volume 1 (I wasn't really a big fan of the other installments, but don't let that stop you from checking them out).

I'm sure I don't know of any hip-hop you've never heard of, so I have nothing to add, but I wonder if you could recommend some hip-hop that is similar to Geto Boys' early stuff? I love the energetic aggression in their first few albums, but they seemed to have mellowed out a lot in their more recent releases. In rap, I prefer more lyrics about robbing and shooting and raping, and less whining about the difficulties of growing up in the ghetto and complaining about racism.


It made more sense in my head.

Brotha Lynch Hung - Season Of Da Siccness

Spice 1 - 187 He Wrote

DMX - It's Dark and Hell Is Hot

Onyx - Bacdafucup

Circle Of Tyrants - Circle Of Tyrants (it's violent, but borders on comical because of how over-the-top and horror themed it is)

Gravediggaz is also good, as the poster above recommended.

It's the first hip-hop song ever made.

It starts at 1:42, but Newgrounds wouldn't let me post it starting there I guess.

I don't personally consider a spoken W.H. Auden poem Hip-Hop. It's almost there, though.

The recommendations have all been good so far. Here's what I've obtained (so far) as a result of this thread.

Triple P - The Return Of Pimp Bacari (a free mixtape, available @ datpiff)

Trinidad Jame$ - Don't Be S.A.F.E. (also free, @datpiff, but I bought from iTunes)

House of Pain - s/t

Dizraeli - Engurland (City Shanties) (bandcamp)

Leaf Dog - From A Scarecrow's Perspective (amazon mp3)

Adam and Cuth - The Letters EP (name your own price via the bandcamp link Otto provided)

Oliver Hart - The Many Faces of Oliver Hart

Kristoff Krane - Picking Flowers Next To Roadkill

5 Foreign Beggars albums

Asheru & Blue Black - 48 Hours

3 Crucial Times albums

Ini Kamoze - Here Comes The Hotstepper

2 Lowkey albums

Akala - Knowledge Is Power Volume 1

Devlin - Bud, Sweat & Beers

Skinnyman - Free Skinnyman Mixtape

2 DJ Format albums

I enjoy supporting hip-hop. If the artist has a bandcamp or something, link it with your recommendation.

Yeah, well, trip hop is still hip hop.

Can you reccomend me any trip hop, instrumental hip hop. or any kinds of hybrids of electronic and instrumental hip hop?

Also, if you haven't checked out Nosaj Thing, then do it now.You'll like it. I'd bet on it.

Good shit, Jay. I didn't know you were into hip hop or rap. I really liked that first song. It sounded nice, but it also literally made me laugh out loud at the beginning. "Drop fat shit like an elephant." It's almost like it was made for me. "Offend your senses" eh? eh?

You should probably just check out anything from Ninja Tune or anticon. Ninja Tune is pretty much to go-to for jazzy/breakbeat hip-hop and anticon for more lo-fi/alternative instrumental hip-hop.

DJ Mayonnaise (has a lot of ambient-tinged hip-hop instrumentals)

AraabMUZIK (often uses trance samples)

Maybe try some James Pants - he samples all sorts of 80s/70s stuff, Italo Disco, Synthpop, Post-Punk and etc.

Here's some techno sampling Souls of Mischief.

It's hard to say what is hybrid and what is pure electronic, especially when you're talking about just instrumentals. Most hip-hop samples jazz, blues, soul and other black music, though.

Also, if you haven't checked out Nosaj Thing, then do it now.You'll like it. I'd bet on it.

If it's anticon, I know about it. I'd argue about the trip-hop genre distinction, but it's not too important. I like both genres. Tricky and etc are not hip-hop in the strictest sense, though.

All good suggestions. A lot of anticon/def jux/stones throw etc in this thread.

I own the double 12" Chronic, but not any NWA vinyl. I do own some World Class Wreckin' Cru vinyls, though.

Interesting fact: Thes One, of People Under The Stairs, was actually on The Price Is Right once.

I'm going to keep taking screenshots of my hip-hop albums in iTunes because I love it and they're all finally organized completely.

SPIN just published an article about "8 Essential Oldest-School Rap Classics." All before Run-DMC's self-titled debut, so pre-1984. I'm reading it, and while I don't ALWAYS agree with SPIN they usually know how to write how they feel pretty well.

Here's their list.

Various Artists - The Great Rap Hits
Kurtis Blow - Kurtis Blow
Various Artists - Live Convention '82
Various Artists - Wild Style
Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five - The Message
Treacherous Three - Whip It
Jonzun Crew - Lost In Space
Whodini - Whodini

...way too many compilations, damn.
