Not examples of shock value artists though. Was thinking of Gravediggaz and Eminem, the Slim Shady stuff. Needs to be have humouristic value too... Like that Criminal skit when Slim robs a liquor store or something and shoots the clerk before jetting, that was fun.
"Girl, they call me Slug, do you wanna make love?" Cracks me up :] :)
If I'm walking or something, I like hardcore sounding shit, or Percee P type stuff
but if I'm sitting down somewhere, I like chilled, relaxed stuff like Panacea
What made me ask this, is coz we often get a lot of hardcore type submissions, that sound like Vinnie Paz type stuff in the email, but its not really my preferred taste, some of them to me, don't sound that good so a lot of it I don't put up, but then I was thinking, maybe others from here might actually like that stuff http://chirbit.com/emseed http://youtube.com/siwooot
vinnie paz type shit is real popular these days and even tho i dont dig most of it myself if you check it out on yt kids are loving it "We took pride in intellect and skill Now you gotta have some sex appeal to get a record deal" - K-RINO
yep vinnie paz style has always been big with pedestrian hip-hop fans, i think it's just cause it's very simple and accessible so people can enjoy it yet it gives off the impression that it's super real and serious even if there's actually not a whole lot of substance. same way i feel about pedestrian fans who are really into immortal technique, they could listen to a song where all he does is brag about how great he is and how shitty every other rapper is and they'll still claim it had some great political message haha Rep the bay
