(Mancave Daily)   Five wrappers you should be listening to right now. Yeah, the correct term is rappers, but these five are recycled, paper thin and disposable   (mancave.cbslocal.com) divider line 73

bhcompy: Rap died with Tupac and Biggie. Today's rappers are just glorified r&b pop singers


I thought PM Dawn killed it in 1992?

Haven't really listened to rap in years....does it still sound like a boot in a dryer?

You're thinking of dubstep...but only if you add the sound of transformers farking...

hip hop is actually pretty good right now. that commercial gap between lil wayne and immortal technique is filled with interesting releases. (frank ocean/odd future, asap rocky and his lana del rey fetish, el-p, gambino, danny brown, kendrick lamar, action bronson)

im not complaining

busy chillin': Gunny Highway

Agreed. Thanks!

/miss the music tab

That lady's voice is super sultry.

I miss it too...but I guess we have to take what we can get.

I have no interest in rap and have no clue why anyone else does

You must have some interest, or you wouldn't have even bothered clicking the link, or viewing the thread let alone commenting on it.

/unless you just have to make sure everyone knows just how much you don't care about things, I guess there is that too

KrispyKritter: i pity fools that stay stuck in a genre that died long ago. people- should be out making the scene, creating the next sound, building a following for your creative outlet. play your own original sounds. no need to live in yesterday.


With almost 100 years of recorded music to draw from there's a ton of great music that can be discovered.

About five years ago I started listening to Thelonius Monk. Totally changed the way I listen to music.

That led to Art Blakey, Cannonball Adderly, Charlie Parker, Duke Ellington, Lester Young, Nina Simone, etc.

To me it's like a history lesson every time I get to sink my teeth into something new; the performers, the racial issues, the politics. It's timeless. Every record has a story to it; a real story....not someone getting their own label because they "blew up." Ya know, real history. Not a disposable story for a sidebar in Entertainment Weekly.

And as a bass player I realized a long time ago that I would never be as good as Jaco Pastorious, or Steve Harris or Les Claypool. But I can be happy slogging away in a three-set bar band for beer money and occasionally a car payment. And I like to think if I was really paying attention to my contemporaries maybe a little "Duck" Dunn or Jamerson gets snuck in there now and again.

When I turn on the radio these days I hear alot of recycled things; everyone's "bit" seems to be taking half of Joy Division or Kraftwerk or Yaz. "Innovating" isn't making a $3,000 keyboard sound like something you pulled out of a Salvation Army discard pile and making it your "signature sound." It's actually doing something with it that's. well, innovative.

And yes I do know modern radio sucks and all the good new music is on the media outlets that only you know about. I could give a crap less. "Disposable" and "derivative" are the two words that come to mind when anything I hear that's getting acclaim.

So pity me as much as you need to for someone that views most of what's coming out today as burgled turds. Not a single one of them can hold a candle to the musicians (Christ does that term get used loosely these days) I'm happily fascinated with.

SubBass49: I'm also a fan (when I'm in the right mood) of just about anything DoseOne does...


Dose is the man, and really nice in person.

Because the caterwauling of electric guitars is less than preferable to some folks?

Because growing up on Motown means that the natural progression is to rap?

Because we have taste and you don't?

/OK, so the third one was just snark.

thevza: danny brown


Yeah...totally forgot to mentino Danny Brown, though I have in other older threads...dude is off his rocker, but in a good way...

Creoena: I have nothing constructive to add to any conversation


Gotcha

Atmosphere is REALLY good, but putting him on the list like he's somehow new is a bit ridiculous.

FTA:

If you like: "etc"

I don't like any of those, article. but I already liked your suggestions. wat do?

koniver: El-P's Cancer for the Cure is awesome, check out Killer Mike's new album which was produced by El-P.

The one song you should be listening to right now is Aesop Rock Zero Dark Thirty, the album comes out on Tuesday.


came here to say this. zero dark thirty is a pretty catchy tune, but you should be listening to this Zzz Top

new Aesop Rock, I'm giddy with anticipation.

It's like how everyone forgets that The Coup isn't only Boots Riley.
