    just wanted to know where all the hip hop fans are at!! I've been into the hip hop scene since 83 and currently listen to mostly nor cal artists but I don't limit myself there... I have a very extensive collection of artists from all over the states, I just have been really diggin what has been coming out of Northern California in the last couple of months. Anyone else into hip hop post some of your favorite artist of current days and what has been in your rotation lately. Currently I'm really liking the Newest release from Messy Marv, "Cake & Ice Cream, Vol. 2". Also have been playing Bueno "Maloof Money", PSD "A Star Iz Born", & Yay Boyz Present "Got Purp? Vol. 2"... How about ya'll???

    You guys ain't alone. I still love H.E.R too:D
    Im counting down the days till the new MF DOOM (all caps, lol) album. I've got very little time for gun talk in hip-hop now, so its mostly cats like Lupe, Mos, Common, The legendary Roots Crew, Slum, Talib, MF DOOM, ATCQ and OutKast. You know, if they're original and have a message, then im feeling them.

    I am pretty much into Kanye's songs lately. I like how upbeat and groovy his songs are. My ipod playlist is practically Kanye's songs. :)

    Anyone ever heard of Rasheda?? I guess she's the dirty south queen. I bought one of her albums and it's pretty good. She's worked with quite a few other rappers as well so the songs have a really cool sound.


    Oh and one of her songs was in that Paul Blart movie. LOL

    recently i keep bumping paper trail. i think i enjoy at least 10-11 songs on that cd, and that almost never happens unless it's a concept album.

    i was a little upset that the rap grammy went to lil wayne though. tha carter iii was good/alright but definitely not better than paper trail, nas' "untitled", american gangster, or the cool. i think grammy voters were thinking "hmm, the youngins like lil wayne, mrs. officer has that cool and hip siren chorus, yup, got my vote".

    I am not a big fan of Lil Wayne. His Carter 1 & 2 albums were good but Carter 3 got to be the same old stuff "I'm the best rapper alive". Gets annoying.

    I actually though Tha Carter III was a great album. There were a few songs on there like Mrs. Officer and the like that weren't that great, but the rest I thought were very good. I have been also listening to lupe fiasco a little and he's really growing on me, pretty good stuff.

    O, I forgot to mention Tech N9NE. I've only heard a few of their songs (Caribou Lou), but not bad.

    I also like Girl Talk, it's interesting hearing all those songs mixed together.

    Eh I haven't listened to wayne in a couple of months now, don't really plan to.

    Anyone in here awaiting Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx II? I guess it's supposed to come out towards the end of this month. Not getting my hopes up though.
