Rap & Hip-Hop: So what's the RHH fam listening to right about now?

For me, it's been a lot of, Ro James and August Alsina, just starting to enjoy that sing-rap style more, it lets you hear the artists voice in its fullness.

Q: What's your thoughts on the past few years of R/HH, like 2014-2017?

(I'm not going to lie, I do like the younger rappers like 21 Savage, but it gets boring after awhile and when I hear of an old head coming out from their dormant sleep, it's usually timeless and better, it puts a giant smile on my face)

Q2: Who are your top 5 favorite producers right now?(doesn't necessarily have to be current or all time, just what producers have been catching your ear recently)


Heads up!

Kool G Rap dropped a project this year, titled Return Of The Don, it's actually... pretty damn good, I was expecting some outdated sounding 80s ****, it still has the old eastcoast slang.. but it's nice.

He adapted and while it didn't get many sales, I recommend y'all check it out when you're in a chill/relaxed mood. I just wish he would've put more modern features e.g. (Pusha T, Kendrick Lamar and Schoolboy Q, Freddie Gibbs... etcetera, along with keeping the Raekwon and Sean Price feats...)

    My playlist has always been a mix of new and old tracks as for new music I have been repeatedly listening to Highly Intoxicated the new Juicy J mixtape that came out a couple of days back and after a few average releases Juicy J is back with some hot $#it and has once again proven that he got one of the best mixtape discography ever. For older music I have once again gone back to NWA era with all that No Vaseline and F**k Da Police **** and sounds awesome when you play it after so long.

    B.Q 1 : It has been good with its own highs and lows as for my taste TAAN by Wale, RTJ 2 by RTJ and ALLA by Rocky (maybe a few more) have been the only albums that I really enjoyed from start till end.

    B.Q 2 : Now that's tough but I'll give a few names :

    # DJ Premier

    # Dr. Dre

    # Madlib

    # RZA

    # J Dilla

    Well, I did not listened to it cause with all honesty I have never been a big fan of G Rap, I mean I can only enjoy G Rap in bits and pieces and listening to a complete project from him in a single sitting gets too much for me. Even though I am not into stereotyping but I agree with most old hip hop heads when they say that G Rap is like Em of 80s, he was good but extremely overrated.

      You're 100% correct when I first played 'Highly Intoxicated' it hit me right in the head cause of that Triple 6 Mafia feeling this project gives.

    I keep telling myself to listen to like to some August but I never come round to doing it, I've heard some features from him and his I really like what I heard

    BQ1) Not bad, better than 2010/2013 like what Luke said, we've had some good albums

    BQ2) DJ Mustard, Ryan Lewis, Kanye... anyone who produced DJ Khaled's music

    Never could get into him tbh :/

    Nothing yet, but I'm bout to listen to some Musiq Soulchild. This song is sooooo good

    BQ: Awful for the most part. I think this is the worst era in hip hop so far. I know that people said that in the early 2000's, and again in the late 2000's, and then again in the early 2010's, but I think this is the worst one yet. Sad thing is that in 5-6 years I'll probably look back and say this wasn't this bad compared to what will be around then.

    BQ2: I don't really have any favorite producers TBH

    I tried to listen to that G Rap when it came out but I didn't care for it much. Maybe I'll try it again.

    I'm a Rocky stan now. Tho the new freestyle he dropped with Metro Boomin on the beat was pretty awful. His new album is on the way soon, tho.

    BQ1: Imo better than 2010-2013. I think Trap has improved with autotune playing a bigger role in it. And a lot of the best experimental albums have been legit top tier as well.





    Just Blaze

    Anyone who produced Rocky's music

    Heard the G Rap album. It's pretty good, but it just doesn't do it for me anymore. I could see how some people who really like that style of rap would like that. But I'm not into it as much as I used to be and prime G Rap was much better obviously with more replay value.
