Massive Educated Consumers fan, need some suggestions!  Reply with quote  

Hey all,

I am a bit of a hip hop noob however love Educated Consumers (and a bit of Broken Clock).
Have listened to most main stream hip hop/rap over the past few decades
e.g NAS, 2pac, biggie etc and enjoy those

But wondering if there are other artists you may recommend? I like easy listening stuff with that old school sound.

Recently went through one of your other threads on here and from everything I listened to, I enjoyed Common and A Tribe Called Quest, but found them a touch repetitive.

Any help greatly appreciated!

if you got to this forum you probally went through the actual website, within the website there is a store, within the store not only are there hip hop classics, but SFR classics among new and fresh hiphop as well, use the internet and look up some of these artists, decide what you vibe and connect to, then support.

let the journey begin, it will be infinite if you love this

Seems like a big thing people do when they get into hip-hop later in life is overanalyze their taste, like they think there are sounds/styles/subjects that they shouldn't enjoy. I'm not sure the reason for this, but I suspect it is a bad reason.

Let those artists you dig lead you to other artists if you're really that particular about your taste. Check out these rappers you listed, look at who is featuring on their albums and seek them out. It is a giant web that eventually leads you everywhere, if you want it to. If you look into Common, for example, you'll find lots of artists associated with Common who do a much more interesting work.

And if you're looking to just get into hip-hop, give EVERYTHING a try as it comes to you. Even shit you feel like you're not going to like, because one or two spins of a record you weren't expecting to love could launch you into outer space for the next year.

Also consider you might just not be all that into hiphop. AND THAT IS OK. like what you like. But if the only hiphop you dig is made by white people you probably don't like hiphop music.*

It's deep and demanding. You can spend your whole life listening to it and still find gems you missed. Don't let it intimidate you but also don't force it.

We never get updates from these guys. Haha hiphop fan advice. Buncha dorks.

*i realize from your post this might not apply to you but it's worth saying. Even here.

ALSO, MF DOOM


http://www.strangefamousrecords.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=51143

He started out in a group with his brother called KMD under the rap moniker of zev love x. He's also released albums under different rap monikers post-KMD. He's a staple and a good place to start.

some awesome suggestions here, will go through them tonight with a few beers. Yes you guys are also right, I need to explore those bands that I am enjoying and see who is featured, and who has a history around them. Like following the yellow brick road of hip hop!! :)

From your description of what you're looking for it sounds like you would probably enjoy Typical Cats.

More importantly, and to give some love to a SFR artist, you should check out Cecil Otter.
