The original What Hip Hop Are You Listening To Right Now thread was getting huge and unruly, so it is closed and will be archived as well.

With a new design and new features being added here it's a good time to start fresh...

So just like before, it's a simple question...

What Hip Hop Are You Listening To Right Now?

NOTE: These points are not required but certainly recommended:
  • Post Pictures (PLEASE don't put more than 5 pictures per post to keep page load time down) You can post as many times in a row as you want but 5 pictures max per post.
  • Post Videos (Again no more than 5 per post for faster load times)
  • Include basic info especially if that information is not obvious from the picture. Example: Artist - Title Format
  • Talk about it! Say something, say anything. Remember, we aim to build and discuss.

And we're off...thumbs up

Right now...


(I figured I'd start this thread off with a monster classic that every Hip Hop 12" collector should have at least one copy of...)


Money Boss Players - Area Code 212 12" (Warning Records) Late 90s



^Unlike a lot of dope Money Boss Players records, this one is actually easy to find, fairly cheap and it's always the perfect selection.

Arguably one of the best ever beats produced by Minnesota. Even Dre noticed it, as he used it on "Puffin on Blunts and Drankin Tanqueray" a non album B-side, but Money Boss took that beat and drove it home. They own that beat not Dre.

I have doubles of this 12" because it's so easy to mix the instrumental in with anything and then work the dirty version in. Not to mention, it's got the acapella on the flip, so anyone who thinks they can take those lyrics and even touch Minnesota's beats can build a new bass line around the vocal track.

TLDR: File Under: This should be in your crate already.

This is better in my opinion. Bassline kills it.

RN...

Heltah Skeltah ‎– Nocturnal LP (Priority) 1996



^One of my favorite Boot Camp Clik albums. Seems a bit somber to peep it today, but as an MC, respect is due and this is only one of many reasons why.
