    Some great contributions ITT already.

    Here's a new name to add to the mix; Tobe Nwigwe.

    New kid on the block and the dude can rap.





    His collection called 'The Originals' was released earlier this year and it is fucking great.

    He's about release the second Originals compilation in the next week or so I think. Guy puts in work. Releases a new song basically every week.

    Oh, and because it's a hip hop thread on Sherdog I feel compelled to post the greatest example of rapping I've ever seen...

    Maybe check out 'Edan - Beauty and the Beat' . Its an album made using classic/psychadelic rock samples, think it came out mid 00s -might be something you enjoy as a rock music fan; piece of brilliance and one of my favourites.

    Anything by El-p or The Alchemist will probably blow you away. For the former check out his 'Cancer for the cure' album...just listening to it there and its still amazing; for the Alchemist any of his albums..i really like 'Russian Roulette' a rocky 4 /russian concept mix. The guy is an artist.

    Listen to Canibus btw if you haven't, He's arguably one of the greatest freestyle lyricists of all time, a sort of 'lyricist's lyricist' held up among the very best. Never really reached his peak in commercial success because of being blackballed supposedly and he blames Wyclef for fucking up one album etc. His diverse subject matter (the hour long freestyle above this post REALLY showcases this) usually impresses me, every time I listen I pick up on something really obscure. He must read a LOT of books.


    ^^^ Favourite Canibus verse at the moment lol, 3:00, goes off and outdoes Redman

    That album is a fucking slam dunk classic and hugely underrated, somehow lost in the shuffle of mid-90s greatness. He noticeably modified his flow from the DJ Polo albums. I was never that big on Canibus, but KGR wrecked this collab so thoroughly it almost made my eyes water.

    Nwa was the most influential rap group of all time but Wu-tang was the best....
