Damn my bad, finally on a computer. Couldn't do all this fancy copy/pasting on my phone.

Of course they do, man, you know this! People just don't often bring them up, it's already known that they're some of the top godfathers of rap. This is probably my favorite Pac track:

Old School - 2 Pac

edit: I'm listening to Kendrick and Gambino mostly at the moment, with a bit of Wu-Tang Clan mixed in.
I could post links to my favorite Snoop Dogg songs all day, so let me just list a few lesser known/under appreciated joints:
  • Murder Was the Case [Remix]
  • My Medicine ft. Willie Nelson
  • Lighters Up (as Snoop Lion) ft. Mavado & Popcaan
  • and then of course all of the fire features he's done over the years

They seem to like the likes of Kanye, Drake, Nicki Minaj and such. I don't like those at all, though.
I actually like at least a few songs from all of those artists, so here's a pick for each:
  • Drake - Up All Night ft. Nicki Minaj
  • Nicki Minaj - Beez in the Trap ft. 2 Chainz
  • Kanye West - Famous

I love K-dot, as well as the rest of the Top Dawg crew, Jay Rock, Ab-Soul, ScHoolboy Q (the four together known as Black Hippy), SZA, Isaiah Rashad.

Here are some good tracks:
Spoiler:

Rigamortis - Kendrick Lamar


Money Trees - Kendrick Lamar ft. Jay Rock


Hood Gone Love It - Jay Rock ft. Kendrick Lamar


Pineal Gland - Ab-Soul


Collard Greens - ScHoolboy Q ft. Kendrick Lamar


Zip That, Chop That - Black Hippy


U.O.E.N.O. [Black Hippy Remix] - Rocko


Constipation - Black Hippy


On Some Other Sh!t - Black Hippy


Ronnie Drake - Isaiah Rashad ft. SZA


Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino aka Troy Barnes is a really versatile creative dude. I loved him on Community, like most of his music, and his show Atlanta on FX was out-of-this-world good. I really love his feature on this N.A.S.A. track (North America/South America, a cool DJ project that always get a bunch of random awesome guest artists to make cool songs), remixed by Tropkillaz:

Hide - N.A.S.A. ft. Childish Gambino & Aynzli Jones [Tropkillaz Remix]
Spoiler:


Biggie will always be a King. My favorite track is actually a mash-up from an album with Biggie a cappellas over beats made from Frank or Nancy Sinatra songs:

Spoiler:
Dead Wrong/In My Room - The Notorious B.I.G. x Nancy Sinatra


Also, this is forever a classic. RIP
You're Nobody Till Somebody Kills You - The Notorious B.I.G.

What about Public Enemy? I always found it to pretty insane that Flav is the most famous member lol. Chuck D and Terminator are geniuses.

I love Kendrick. I hate pretty much all mainstream stuff, but he's a real talent.

Not my favorite of his, but relevant to the fact that this is a TMNT thread:

Spoiler:


Yeah, "mumble rap" as its apparently being called now is pretty hit-or-miss. Future always has good beats though, these are worth checking out:

Spoiler:

Cee-Lo - Future ft. Wale


Too Excited - Future


Itchin' - Future


Upper Echelon - Future


Old Hundreds - Future ft. Twista


Man, I LOVE me some Public Enemy. Power to the people and the beats!!!
  • He Got Game
  • Public Enemy No. 1
  • Fight The Power
  • By the Time I Get to Arizona
  • Give It Up
All classics. And I can't lie, I watched both seasons of Flavor of Love, that season of The Surreal Life, and The Roast of Flavor Flav (as well as the Katt Williams special that talked about his time working on The Roast of Flavor Flav) all out of love for P.E., and just to see wtf Flav is up to now I once dressed up as Flavor Flav for the Throwback Thursday day during Spirit Week in high school.

I also gotta admit, I got a soft spot for RiFF RAFF. He's an odd character, but when he's good, he's goood.

Spoiler:

TiME - RiFF RAFF


LAVA GLACiERS - RiFF RAFF FT. CHiLDiSH GAMBiNO


BRiCK OFF THE BALCONY - RiFF RAFF


REAL BOYZ - RiFF RAFF FT. OJ DA JUiCEMAN & CAP-1


BiRD ON A WiRE - RiFF RAFF & ACTiON BRONSON


Any Action Bronson fans here? I actually got into him from watching his cooking shows. Dude is a mad talented cook and now a burgeoning TV personality, he hosts a food/travel show on Viceland and him and his friends star on Traveling the Stars: Action Bronson and Friends Watch ‘Ancient Aliens’. Pretty funny if you're into that sort of thing.

Spoiler:

Easy Rider - Action Bronson


Actin' Crazy - Action Bronson


Alligator - Action Bronson




Alright, that was a lot. I've listened to all the songs you guys posted so post some for me. I'll leave you with this classic. I like to imagine the Turtles listening to this when they're on their way home from patrol or just kickin' it in their hideout.
