04-21-2007, 06:21 PM
I am gonna say the Roots. I've heard their great live. Unless you consider Rage hip-hop. I know they're not but Zack can bring it like any MC alive.

Seriously, especially when there's so little hip hop at Coachella....Irrelevant though, the only answer to the topic question is The Roots.

Is Rage hip hop? They're headlining Rock the Bells, so someone thinks they're credible. But maybe this is the end of hip hop as we know it...

04-21-2007, 09:23 PM
I don't think Spank Rock is really Hip-Hop. They don't belong in the same category as the Roots, they are totally different (seen their live show? You'll know what I mean...)

L.D.N
04-22-2007, 06:48 AM
i voted roots, they're probably my favourite band at the moment, seen them live a couple of times (reading fest and shepards bush empire) and they were top class.

spank rock is pretty damn good aswell, he's got a fabriclive cd out which sort of mixes hip hop electro house party tunes together, tho he'll more than likely be performing his tracks live, shame tho cos that cd is ace

Well, I'm that lone vote for The Coup right now. I saw him a couple weeks ago and it was a pretty incredible show. I had to throw him some support.

Honestly, I'm looking forward to seeing Ghostface since, well, he's Ghostface and Fishscale is so so good.

Trick Loves The Kids
04-22-2007, 03:12 PM
The Coup are going to be the shit, it's really a joke how low they are on the flyer, although Happy Mondays and Crowded House are above the Roots so basically the flyers are worthless.

04-22-2007, 06:22 PM
1.) Zach de la Rocha
1.5) EL-P (have you even heard the new album???!!! wowzers)
1.75) DJ Shadow(pssh...how can you NOT label him hip hop)
2) Roots
3.) Pharoach Monch (You guys left him out too)
4.) Ghostface Killah

Lupe doesn't get of my list....

Tha Roots put on a hellofashow, Ive seen Pharoahe Monch and is a close second for who I've seen...but damn sure lookin forward to Brother Ali and El-P..
Does anyone think that the roots are playing the same time as rage, if so I will be too pissed

I am looking forward to Busdriver. Spank Rock is cool I've seen them at a tiny record store in san diego called M-theory and they rocked all 5 of us there.

Ghostface is cool as well...as you can tell I'm having a hard time deciding.


Liquid Swords is THE best hip-hop album of all time I think.

So by default I would have to say Ghostface.

Wow. Let me just say, we were all wrong. The Roots did everything BUT bring hip hop. I don't know what they brought, but it's not what I paid for.

How can you start a set by playing samples of other songs (Everything from Nas to Mims) and claiming that "It's all hip hop" and "Hip hop is not dead" and then proceed to play a show almost completely devoid of hip hop?

"Hm, maybe we'll change the words of the national anthem, play that, then we'll throw in some Jungle Boogie just to make people feel good. Then we'll jam randomly for 10 minutes. The peak of the show will be The Seed 2.0, the only song that the white KROQ kids who attend Coachella will probably know, and end with an exciting 10 minute introduction of each member of our band.

Oh yeah, can't forget we have to remind everyone of our "legendary" status over and over again, because they won't be able to tell after our piss-poor set."

If hip hop is dying, it's because great hip hop acts like The Roots ignore the fact. I'm okay with fusing funk and jazz into a hip hop concert, but this wasn't a fusion. There was no hip hop. Thank God for Lupe Fiasco and Pharoahe Monch.

Trick Loves The Kids
04-30-2007, 11:12 AM
Pharoahe (I can never spell that) KILLED it. I was expecting him and a DJ but he had a full band and they were really live. Lupe was okay but Monch really was awesome, it's just a shame he didn't play "The Light."

I skipped Roots (seeing them at Rock the Bells) but that's a shame about their performance.

CiderMouseRules
04-30-2007, 11:12 AM
Dude, The Roots set was awesome. They've always been about all kinds of music. So what if they played a lot of rock-oriented stuff?

The Masters of War cover was INCREDIBLE. It was a kickass set. I'm sorry you couldn't appreciate it.

Like I said in my post, it's okay to be about all kinds of music. But they are a hip hop group known for hip hop songs. Play SOME of them. Don't waste our time with Jungle Boogie. ESPECIALLY after telling us what hip hop is and what isn't. That performance wasn't hip hop...how ironic.

I really hope they're better at Rock the Bells.

Anyway, I'm just going to respond by saying "Life is a blast when you know what you're doin / Best to know what you're doin 'fore your life get ruined / Life is a thrill when your skill is developed / If you ain't got a skill or trade, then shut the hell up

That is all the evidence necessary to prove Del's greatness. But let me emphasize that I would definitely rather have all of Hiero at Coachella. I've seen them together and I've seen Del solo, and Hiero together is better. It's like a Wu Tang show. All the white kids want to see Method Man the most, and they'll get him, but they'll also get plenty of other awesomeness.

I've never heard anyone, especially Del himself, use his cousin's name to achieve success or sell tickets/albums. I don't think he's more talented than Ice Cube, but he's up there with him lyrically.

I don't understand the hate on his delivery, it's catchy, it's pleasing to the ear. What exactly do you look for? I'm not saying he's technically the best rapper ever, but he deserves some credit. As far as technical skill goes, he's no worse than 2pac.

It doesn't matter if he or anyone else explicitly called out Ice Cube's name. What matters is the money and power/influence on the industry.
Forget Ice Cube though.

Del's delivery is absolutely not "pleasing to the ear". He raps as though stuck in a wobbling bowl of Jello. He sounds like he's about to vomit at any second.

And hey the Backstreet Boys aren't technically the best boy band ever. As far as technical skill goes, they're no worse than 98 Degrees.

Hip-Hop's Newest Faces: Indie, Fierce and Female
By JULIANNE SHEPHERD

JWL B. of the Florida hip-hop duo Yo Majesty was not satisfied with her tight-collared, mostly male audience at a New York club last fall. So she nonchalantly peeled off her oversized white T-shirt and black sports bra and performed the next several songs topless, bounding about the stage with the ease of a shirtless male rapper. The audience lit up and finally proceeded to, as the Yo Majesty song "Club Action" commands, get their behinds "on the floor."

And that is how a lesbian rap group from Florida got an uptight Manhattan crowd to relax a little.

"I got stretch marks, and I'm fat, and I'm wildin,' " Jwl B., whose real name is Jewel Baynham, said in a phone interview. "But your boy 50 Cent does his show with his shirt off. Why can't I? God made me who I am, and I'm comfortable in it. I want people to know you don't have to look glamorous to be an inspiration."

It's a lackluster time for mainstream female rappers, with M.C.'s like Foxy Brown and Remy Ma making more headlines for jail stints than for their music. Lil' Kim hasn't gone platinum since 2003, Eve's comeback album has been delayed several times, and Missy Elliott's first record in three years isn't due until late spring. Fergie, with her singsong chants about her feminine wiles, is the closest thing to a female rap superstar these days. But in the wake of the critical favorite M.I.A., a new crop of young, multicultural, female hip-hop acts is causing a stir on the Internet and in indie-label conference rooms.

There's Kid Sister, a cheeky, charismatic rapper from Chicago who recently released a video featuring Kanye West; Amanda Blank, a nasty-mouthed M.C. from Philadelphia who is associated with the hipster male hip-hopper Spank Rock; and Santogold, a new-wavey singer and dub-style rapper from Brooklyn who toured with Bjork last fall. Though their styles vary from agile wordplay to club-ready choruses, what unites them is their fresh, left-of-center enthusiasm; their bold attitudes; and an expansive approach to female sexuality.

"There is a reason why these artists are having so much early traction online," said Josh Deutsch, chief executive of Downtown Records, which will release albums by Amanda Blank and Santogold this spring. "And it's because they have such strong voices and strong points of view. There's nothing remotely manufactured about them."

Yo Majesty's roots go back six years, when Ms. Baynham met LaShunda Flowers, who is known as Shunda K., a track star turned rapper, at a gay club in Tampa, Fla. (A third member, Shon Burt, quit recently.) The group's early songs were "real gay music," Ms. Flowers said.

Yo Majesty broke up for a few years, during which Ms. Baynham renounced her homosexuality, found God, married a male Christian missionary, got divorced then reclaimed her lesbian identity. Upon reuniting, the rappers began building a following through MySpace. That led to a recording contract with Domino Records, which will release their debut album this year.

Yo Majesty's party-rap proudly celebrates everything below the waist, but the duo also grapples with growing up Christian and gay. "At the end of every show," Ms. Flowers said, "whatever we do, we ask people, 'Do you know who the Lord is?' "

The only religion in Amanda Blank's music is the kind she is losing. Ms. Blank, whose real name is Amanda Mallory, mimics the pornographic lyrics of Southern rappers like Trina and Khia, but she ramps up the gross-out factor to the point of nigh-absurdity. Her persona is a mix of seediness and street-toughness, which is on display in "Loose," a recent video by Spank Rock. As several naked, tattooed women writhe all over him, Ms. Blank sits on a toilet, threatening to fight rappers who try to steal her style and making highly unprintable claims about her sexual prowess.

Unlike Yo Majesty and Amanda Blank, Kid Sister spurns sexual frankness in favor of innuendo. Born Melisa Young on the South Side of Chicago, she dismisses unsuitable suitors while strutting her postmodern stuff. "We could be hugged up like hippies on a tree trunk," she teases in her verse in Chromeo's "Tenderoni," while "Telephone" reprimands a guy for calling too much. In the video for her single "Pro Nails," backup dancers sit in pedicure chairs, lip-synching the chorus: "Got her toes done up with her fingernails matchin'."

The video underscores Ms. Young's populist, all-ages aspirations. "It's music made by a girl who shops at Target, made for girls who shop at Target," Ms. Young said. "Or girls who work at LensCrafters or Ace Hardware or are sorority sisters or debutantes."

Angel Laws, editor of the celebrity news Web site Concreteloop.com and an early champion of Kid Sister, said: "I think she stands out. She's a party rapper, bringing back the '80s style with the club-hop." (Kid Sister's debut album, "KoKo B. Ware," is due from Fool's Gold Records this summer.)

But the artist with the loudest buzz is Santogold, who has already been called the next big thing in many articles. Born Santi White, she parlayed a college internship at Ruffhouse Records into a job as an A&R scout for Sony. After she was executive producer and wrote most of the songs on an album for the R&B singer Res, she left and eventually formed her own punk band, Stiffed.

In 2006 Ms. White, who now lives in Brooklyn, began writing her own songs; "Creator" and "LES Artists" confess to feelings of alienation, but she also revels in her individuality. Singing in a haunting, sensual wail, or toasting in the style of dub M.C.'s, she adds a layer of softness to an unusual mix of synthesizers, dancehall rhythms and percolating new wave.

"She appeals very broadly," said Martin Heath, the founder of Lizard King Records, which signed Stiffed and is jointly releasing Santogold's debut album with Downtown. "She's not cliché one way or the other. She's not playing on the foxy thing."

Ms. White said she admires other female artists who try to defy stereotypes. "You get these images of women in sexy clothes, walking around in, like, panties," she said. "Even Beyoncé - that's what it is to be a woman and make music. But now there are all these other women doing cool, interesting things, wearing styles they came up with, and it's not about being naked."

Since the time seems ripe for underground, unquantifiable female M.C.'s, the Lady Tigra is hoping that pioneers will have a place too. She was half of the '80s duo L'Trimm, which scored a poppy Miami bass hit with "Cars that Go Boom" in 1988.

After spending the last two decades getting a creative writing degree, managing Manhattan clubs and writing and singing the theme song for the frozen yogurt chain Pinkberry ("Sorry Ice Cream"), she's preparing for a comeback. Her first solo album, "Please Mr. Boom Box," released by High Score Records, is available through major digital retailers.

Tigra's aesthetic hasn't changed much since the '80s. She raps in the same honeyed, high-pitched tone, and there are beefy low-end clicks, handclaps and electro synthesizers, all hallmarks of classic Miami bass music. But contrary to much music of that genre, there is little overt sex; she prefers coy comebacks.

The Lady Tigra, whose real name is Rachel de Rougemont, said she hopes that girls will realize that artists like Fergie and Gwen Stefani were inspired by semi-forgotten female forebears like "L'Trimm and J. J. Fad and M.C. Lyte and get into that."

"Before, you'd really have to come with it to be considered an M.C.," she added. "And now women get - if not equal - way more respect and recognition for what they do."

It doesn't matter if he or anyone else explicitly called out Ice Cube's name. What matters is the money and power/influence on the industry.
Forget Ice Cube though.

Del's delivery is absolutely not "pleasing to the ear". He raps as though stuck in a wobbling bowl of Jello. He sounds like he's about to vomit at any second.

And hey the Backstreet Boys aren't technically the best boy band ever. As far as technical skill goes, they're no worse than 98 Degrees.

He would have more money/power/influence on the industry if he threw out Ice Cube's name everywhere he went, which he could easily do. He'd be in and out of the mainstream faster than Warren G.

If you just compared 2pac to 98 degrees, I really can't argue with you anymore. There's no point. You lose.

Logic isn't one of your strong suits.

Just because you claim he would have MORE money/power/influence if he leveraged his cousin's name more often (which is debatable), it does not mean that his cousin's name has had nothing to do with the success he has had.

And no, I did not directly compare 2pac and 98 Degrees. I was simply illustrating the flaw in your "well Del is at least better than 2pac" argument.

The answer to that is not only speculative but irrelevant. The fact of the matter is that a lot of hip hop songs have violent lyrics, and many listeners emulate this. The same can be said with metal. But this alone doesn’t mean all hip hop is negative, and everyone who listens to hip hop is a violent criminal. It’s not fair to stereotype people based solely on what type of music they prefer. I listen to a lot of hip hop, but I prefer positive or humorous lyrics. I've also never robbed a liquor store...

I am saying, people that gravitate to that "music" are mostly ignorant people that listen to only rap, and do not listen to anything else.

So in your world there was no crime before rap music huh? Everything was just right and dandy in the hood before rap came along and fucked it all up. Those people causing trouble at the rap concert would have been home knitting a sweater otherwise. Music is a reflection of the culture that spawned it, dipshit. Sometimes it's positive, sometimes negative, but music doesn't create criminals. Your question about the stolen wallets doesn't deserve an answer because it's the worst type of ignorance.

Whenever I see your name All Your Base, for some reason, I think of Ace of Base. Then I think of Coachella reunion '09 in the Sahara FTW!

But still, Zero Wing has set us up the bomb! A winner is you!

what you say

Right on gotsta rep the mpls hip hop scene, but isn't Atmos a little tired lately? Maybe it is just because I've seen 'em play a gazillion times. I think the Roots would be epic. Lil Wayne would be awesome. Brother Ali always puts on a really fun show too.
Is there any fact behind the Outkast rumors?

Nobody has mentioned Common yet and with Universal Mind Control being a pretty damn good album I could see him there.
