A friend of mine has really been turning me on to Common and Mos Def lately, I had always appreciated both to some degree and had a couple Mos Def albums, but after sitting and analyzing certain songs by both, I've come to appreciate them to another degree. Both are very intelligent rappers with A LOT to say.

 

This song gets deep

They simply don't make hip hop like this any more. I don't really care much for the tough guy lyrics. But those early/mid 90's New York rap tracks just painted a picture of New York as this dark and dystopian metropolis. It just had this incredible atmosphere.

Im diggin' what I've seen in this thread so far, some real old school classics for sure.

So I thought I'd share my most recent find, a Pete Rock & CL Smooth joint I never knew existed and I certainly had missed out. Flawless production, funky flow, ODB cuts and even a patois breakdown, shiiiiiiiiiiiiiet.

I like that Flash Bang Grenada and Luchini is a classic. I've been listening to these lately.
