Nobody seems to be mentioning him, but new album on the way, big time hip hop artist, which is a genre nobody's speculating about it seems.

I doubt I'd see him, but I wouldn't be surprised if he's there.

He'd have to headline and it's kind of a strange headliner for Coachella, being that he's very pop-rap. No one speculates about hip hop anymore because last year they had about 4 acts, and also people on this board generally aren't big on hip hop unfortunately.

But they LOVE Outkast on here.

They had more than four hip hop acts last year, but not very good acts. M.I.A., Aesop Rock, Murs, The Cool Kids, dan le sac vs. scroobius pip, Kid Sister and maybe a couple more.

If you notice, most of the "in the know" peeps are short on hip hop rumors. Mostly, because they aren't all that "in the know" and they're just posting about shit they want to see at Coachella.

Also, Eminem at Coachella would be strange.

you're stretching a little with mia and dan le sac no? I don't know Dan le sac v pip well so maybe I'm wrong.

There was also Little Brother and...some other mediocre act can't remember.

But compare it to the first year or two at Coachella where half the lineup was hip-hop, it's crazy how people denounce it on the board now.

You're spot on about Outkast and the rumors.

ZackQ
01-19-2009, 09:01 AM
Good call on Mia. She's not true hip hop. Dan le sac is just as hip hop as the streets or roots manuva. They should bring back Little Brother EVERY year.

I think I've posted this before, but here's my hip hop wish list:

-Public Enemy
-Q-Tip (if not Tribe)
-Clipse
-The Mighty Underdogs
-Atmosphere
-9th Wonder in some capacity
-Lil Wayne a la Kanye in '06 (fuck the haters)
-Little Brother (should be there every year)
-And some underground cats I don't know about yet.

I would definitely be down with seeing Jay-Z as a major subheadliner.

Hahaha so...not hip hop. Let's just say there were about 5 rap acts last year, that'll make it clearer.

You know, I thought he was a bit boring. As a live hiphop act he's about as middle of the road as it gets.

I remember who the other mediocre guy was, it was the guy from Living Legends....luckyiam, that's his name.

All good, I'll continue to hate despite your warning, Lil Wayne I have no idea why people like....oh yeah Pitchfork. I don't think that's why you like him necessarily, but for some reason...really, there's nothing special about him. He invented the phrase "bling bling" that's about it.

You've obviously never been to Rock the Bells. It's not hard to do hip-hop live as long as you have good breath control. Eminem would have mediocre breath control and a hype man to help him out (see Eminem Show tour DVD).

I don't think Eminem would be very Coachella and not a very good headliner, but I would watch, enjoy and be very excited personally. And I could probably get my brother to come.

I'm not saying hip-hop can't sell Coachella. We've had the Beastie Boys headline and acts like BlackStar, Gang Starr and The Roots have come. Eminem in particular is just very pop and would be kind of a strange pick. Jay-Z would be a great headliner, could never subheadline, he's too big. Jay-Z is pop too but has credibility where Eminem doesn't. Maybe if Eminem comes back with an album where he doesn't sing about ass and gay people half the time and diss on everyone possible the other half.

Lil Wayne, while he doesn't rap about anything of substance, lays down some of the best word play in the game. Compared to most mainstream, southern rappers, he's downright smart with his rhymes. I like his flow, his drawl and that stuff. That's not to say he's not overrated, because he is. But I want to see him live trying to play guitar.

Pitchfork is bizarre to me. They pick out certain rappers and decide "these are the ones indie kids should like." And it's not even the hip hop you would think. It's like Wu Tang Clang, Ghostface and Weezy. Weird. I'd love to hear some insight on how that group has become rap for college kids. They are all badass, but why them? Common, Mos and Talib, that makes more sense.

Ghostface is part of Wu-Tang Clan. But Wu-Tang is real hip-hop, they flow, they have superior beats, they're legendary by now. I'm cool with Pitchfork if they promote simply the best music, or the best indie music.

But that's not always the case. Lil' Wayne does not put out the best hip-hop songs and neither does Kanye West, they're both very average and somehow appeal to a wide audience. And look, now that Pitchfork has hailed Lil' Wayne as today's only rapper whose album they bother reviewing, Rolling Stone and Spin put him as their 2nd or 3rd top album of the year.

Pitchfork is good for promoting guys like Jay Electronica and The Cool Kids, but they pick and choose who they like.

No Problem, Wu Tang is a brother sister duo from Detroit. They created the genre, doo-wop/altcountry. They were sued by the artificial juice company, Tang, so they had to change their name. They are now called the Ting Tings, because 'ting' is their favorite sound.

Coachella hip hop is way better in the tents, especially for cats just starting out.

HOWEVER, I will debate you that hip hop always blows in an open air festival environment.

I would agree with you that hip hop TENDS to blow in an open air festival environment. Real talent works past that.

01-19-2009, 09:49 AM
I've been twice to Rock the Bells and still hold to my original statement. Breath control or not, live hip-hop in a festival setting just isn't that great.

Well you said live hip-hop doesn't work and added that the festival setting doesn't make it any better. Which is different. But anyway, as long as you have quality sound the rapper is worth two shits, it works well enough. By the way if Jay-z were to perform I believe he would have a band, so if that's what you're concerned about then don't worry.


And does anybody respect the hype man? He just makes noise.

It's still hip hop, and it still kicks ass in a festival setting. Lupe Fiasco and Kanye performed with live bands at Lolla too, and that was good hip hop for a festival setting. DJ sets are a lot harder to do well in a festival setting.

Yeah I guess that's true. It's all good as long as they're consistent. It doesn't make sense to review Ghostface and blow off Blackalicious or someone. It doesn't make sense to praise Robyn's new semi-electro sound and not say a word about Silverchair, who has gone through a much more impressive makeover since the 90s.

Hieroglyphics are always touring but I missed them the last couple chances I had. I would definitely at least stop by for half the set or so, probably the whole thing. It's ridiculous seeing all of them up there at once, same as Wu Tang.

Eminem's first two albums are better, but it's not like he never made a good song after that. There are some good songs on Eminem Show and one or two on Encore that I would like to hear if I ever saw him.

I think Em would be a good headliner.

He appeals to the masses, plus the hipsters can at least tolerate him. At the end of the day, you still get a lot of people from the surrounding areas to see the big pop headliners. I remember when Kanye was done playing '06, most of the crowd left which gave me a great up-front spot for Sigur Ros. What I'm getting at is, I think he's a good common ground act to have at Coachella.

The people that don't listen to anything past Top 40 radio would love him, and the people with deeper musical interests at least can tolerate him. For the record I'd love to see him there. Bring on Jay Z, Outkast, the Roots, A Tribe Called Quest...

I could also go for Atmosphere, Brotha Ali, but NOT Eyedea and Abilites... they suck.

It's a shame too, because Aesop Rock writes smart, at least he used to when he first started. I think it's dumbed down a little these days. His flow and delievery are sick too.

Pretty much. A clear case of an artist whose recorded material is leaps and bounds above their live show

How many of you snuck away from Roger Waters to check out Murs? I'm guessing pretty much no one.

But there was an example of an excellent hip hop live show in a festival setting. He started with some crowd favorites to get the kids jumping. Then he brought out a punk rock band from Florida to play some tunes, while he sang and rapped with them. It was unique punk rock in that the entire band was black. If you tell me there's nothing unique about that, you're being stupid. And finally, he finished the set by bringing out the entire Living Legends crew.

Murs did it right. He used the live setting to enhance his music, and he made sure the crowd was booming for the whole time.

Have you guys seen Dan le Sac? He's really really good.

That's not the point.

Kool Kieth in '04 was probably the second best hip hop/rap I've seen live.

I saw Murs INSTEAD of Roger Waters (sorry, I've never been much of a Pink Floyd fan). I thought he put on a good show. I missed Murs in '06, so I was glad to get this chance to see him.

I want DJ cool to play let me clear my throat and then walk off the stage. If not then The Roots or Wale would be great.

What's the point? Maybe I missed it then. It sounded like those guys thought I was insulting Roots Manuva by comparing him to Dan le Sac, which I was not.

I was really pissed about the Murs conflict. They really should have put him against Justice instead.

Heiroglyphics hasn't been good for a decade.

A FUCKING DECADE.

Del is the only rapper in the crew worth listening now, and even he has fallen off since 3030.

I don't know, their last album was good, and the last time I saw them live they were great (2005 or so). Del was always one of the best in the group but hardly the only one worth listening to.

I think Eminem would make a better headliner than The Killers. For me, that's enough reason to justify putting him in the lineup. Of course, if he is in it, we're all going to wonder why they couldn't get a more fitting act.

Yea I rather have the return of Slim Shady rather than Killers

1) I'd enjoy it more
2) I hear less bitching and less bitching always lead to better vibes

I'm not so sure about Eminem meaning less bitching. I think most of this board would be more pissed about him than the Killers.

To the people on here, you're right... to the pop-friendly locals (actually pretty much anyone within reasonable driving distance) that make their way out to the fest, they'd love it

I don't think it would be the end of the world. Especially if he came with guests, which I'm almost certain he would. Cough, Dre, Cough.

Wow, the way you said that actually makes me want Eminem to headline. Imagine Bizarre on the main stage at night. You'd go to sleep happy. I would love to see it personally, but he's still not on my top 3 wish list.

I've seen Eminem live probably 6 or 7 times in my life, twice while he was underground and I will say his shows have seemed to be a bit "lazy" compared to his old work.

Anyone calling him pop-rap is a bit off. Maybe with CD's like the Eminem Show and Encore, but relapse is more along the lines of his 1998-2001 releases with a little mixture of his modern crap.

The lyrics to 3AM are just sick.......

I'd like to see him at Coachella simply because I have liked Eminem since 1998, but I am not so sure he is a "Coachella performer". Then again, I didn't think Jay-Z was either and I was pleasantly surprised when the lineup came out.

It would be nice if Eminem showed up and performed Renegade with Jay-Z, but I doubt that happens.
