The most talented rappers of all time come from NYC and Southern California.


But I am soooooo glad to see my dirty 3rd coast getting love in here. You can't deny the serious effect it had out of nowhere.
Houston, Memphis, PAT all churned outsome SERIOUS music for a decade that I remember so many going "wtf, where did that come from??". It's still what fills my phone.
All I'm giving you

Nah. They don't even rhyme over beats anymore, I don't really dig it. This shit today doesn't fuck with Juice vs. Supernatural.

Yea I feel ya...its not freestyling like the good ol days...There are some good schemes and punchlines..but I like when they are freestyling and using rebuttles in true original battle form..

Almost impossible to pick a favorite but I've definitely listened to way more west coast. Too Short, Bone Thugs, Pac, Del, CMW, NWA, MC Ren, Dre, Snoop, DJ Quik, Cypress hill, Blackalicious, Ice Cube, Ice T, Digital Underground, Eazy E, Hieroglyphics, Luniz, N2Deep, Nate Dogg, Souls of mischief, The Dogg Pound, Warren G, .....fuck way too many to list.

Favorite east coast has to be the Wu and from the south its gotta be Geto Boys.

I can see I'm going to break out some East Coast history here. We'll start with

The Foundation:
SugarHill Gang, Kurtis Blow, Melle Mel, Grandmaster Flash, Caz, Funky Four, Africa Bambaataa

The Evolution:
RUN-DMC, LL Cool J, Whodini, Doug E Fresh/Slick Rick, Beastie Boys, Fat Boys, MC Shan/Marley Marl, UTFO

The Breakout (88):
Public Enemy, KRS-1 (Boogie Down Productions), Eric B. & Rakim, EPMD, MC Lyte, Big Daddy Kane

Native Tongues - The New School:
A Tribe Called Quest, J Dilla, Latifah, Leaders of the New School (Busta Rhymes), De La Soul, Naughty by Nature, Jungle Brothers, Black Sheep, Brand Nubian, Beatnuts, Common, Fu Schnickens

East Coast Renaissance (Golden Age):
Wu Tang Clan, Pete Rock, Notorious BIG, DJ Premier, Boot Camp Clik, Mobb Deep, Black Moon, Jay-Z, Gang Starr, Digable Planets, 3rd Bass, Smif-N-Wesson, NAS, O.C, Organized Confusion, The Roots, Fugees

New Golden Age (Rawkus Records):
Mos Def and Talib Kweli (Blackstarr), Tommy Tee, Eminem, Pharoah Monch, Company Flow, Big L

I may continue this but it's a big subject and I just put together some quick stuff taking us to the 2000's. There's a ton of good music out on the Underground especially on the East coast but you have to forego the radio and pay attention.

I'm kind of a historian about this subject since it's basically my life and the people around me.

Dear Abe,
Thank you for dropping knowledge.
It's my favorite subject, the pleasure is all mine. Most of these guys are still living and still doing it. We had a get together just last month at BB Kings.

Poor Flash got his car accidentally stolen just last week, lol

A New York parking garage gave away Grandmaster Flash’s car to someone else

New York City police are investigating Grandmaster Flash’s missing car after the 2014 white Dodge Charger was given away by a parking attendant on July 16.

Police told the AP that Grandmaster Flash, whose real name is Joseph Saddler, parked his car in the garage and when he returned about an hour later, the attendant said he had mistakenly given the car to someone else he thought was Grandmaster Flash.

The DJ shared photos of his car on Instagram and tweeted that the car was filled with “priceless vintage records and equipment.”

I might be a white(ish) guy from Canada, but hip hop was my life from the early 90's until about 02, and I learned everything I could about its present, it's past, and it's future. It's future is why I don't listen to it much anymore (Fuck you Timbaland) To see your breakdown flooded me back with memories though.

You might be surprised that a resurgence of the nineties sound is taking place right now. Lyricism is becoming important again. Like I said, you have to pay attention to the Underground because that's where it started and that's where it's starting again.

Guys like Joey Bada$$/Pro Era are new school versions of the nineties sound.

I'd love hearing any more of your recs in the lyrical/90s-esque vein, SNIDELY WHIPLASH @ABE FROMAN !
