Yes this is snoop obviously.

Original rap, hip hop started in the ghettos. Many minorities were tired of being poor and needed a way to express themselves. I dont like the modern day Rap. It has turned to crap. But I do appreciate the original stuff. The real Hip Hop.
One of the very first Rap Songs a Rapper just simply explains his frustrations of living as a young man with no education, no job, basically dirt broke and seemingly no hope.

This song pretty much sums up the birth of Hip Hop/Rap.
This song is called the message. He really wants you to hear his message. A cry for help. Here is the Link.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O4o8TeqKhgY

When I was young this was the Rap I knew. Along with rap came breakdancing etc. Hip Hop was just a frustrated group of people trying to find a positive way to express themselves.

Later on in the Ninties enter NWA, Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre. I live in Cali so I experienced this first hand. NWA, Snoop etc.. brought what is called gangster rap. All they were doing was telling you what happens in the streets of LA. Seriously it was not a place to be at night.

However now Rap has just been exploited to its fullest. No longer has any real meaning. Just as commercial as Pepsi Cola. Really to a true Hip Hopper it is dead. Music nowadays sucks. Or maybe I am just getting older. At the same time people in the ghetto have evolved some. Or at least the generation I grew up with.


Here are some real rap songs. No holds barred when the artist was really hungry and trying to make it. Check it out if you are curious.

This is the point of view of a group of young guys from New York in the ninties.

Dre and Snoops classics along with Warren G. JUst simply giving you there everyday experiences.

This one in particular always gets the ladies going. Every lady growing up in the ninties knows this song and they love it.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Th0V-fxo9CE

This is the world famous Tupac. He is telling you his feelings during a heated beef. He is scared for his life knows his life is going to end soon. He has connections to the illuminati and somehow they are not pleased with him. This song explains his feelings best. He is going physco and is probably high at the time.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jabbh1ygC10

This is from the South another ninties classic.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fz42nWqBKwQ

One of the biggest Rap Groups ever another classic.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eI6exAvRlUQ

Notorious B.I.G. Well basically the song explains how happy he is that he finally made it. After struggles he finally succeeded and is giving you the real emotions. Seriously if you cant feel this then I dont know man.

Not disagreeing with either Herohamo or CKR, but they've both managed to leave off what in my youth and to this day is the best rap group ever. Public Enemy. They combined the anger and outrage that was given first rap voice in The Message, politicized it and brought it on a mass scale. Quite frankly, even when making a pop hit ( 911 is a Joke) they were always, always making a point. They wrote lyrics that had substance and was literally shouting to be heard.

There are better lyricists, beat makers and, obviously sellers; there are no better rap artists.

Can't Truss it

After looking at my rap links some may have put me in a box. I love all music. In fact Im in a garage band on the weekend. Here are my raggae jams. These are more classic then modern day. They just are good vibing jams. These are certified jams from the Rasta nation.

Love Snoop but not taking him seriously as a Raggae artist.

Of course Bob

This guy is well known in the Rasta world. He covers eighties hits. Never wrote anything but his performances are full of emotion. Hes an oldie but goodie. Might even bring a tear to your eye. Think of your first love or your love what have you.

Super nat and krs1 at rock the bells were epic!

Emoses: that's exactly why I specified best lyricists of all time, and added NAS. While his punchlines aren't as wild as em and bigL the ideas and messages he raps about are on a new level.
