Im really digging anticon shit but dose one is wack as hell. When people start riding crews they assume everyone in that crew is dope but dose one is god awful,his voice,flow, delivery is just so damn annoying. I dont care how good he could battle or that hes down with anticon he is truly wack and gets on your nerve listening to him longer then a few minutes.
Dose sounds like a retard at first but he is actually
very interesting, unique and is an acquired taste that
truly is DIFFERENT - which is hard to find
in hip hop today. I think Slug sounds like MC Search
from 3rd Bass. He's pretty good though. Astro go buy some No Limit
I'm no new jack - I've been up on this shit since '83. I hadn't heard any anticon shit at all till last week. I sure had read a lot about them on the internet though. They're like some kinda internet hip hop kid's ultimate shit. I heard the anticon CD. It is okay. I don't think it's the super dope shit that kids say it is. I don't think all those kids flow that tight. They have a lot to say, which I appreciate, but this is hip hop and it's as much how you say it as it is what you say.....I'm talking about style and rhythm and flow (and yeah it's mostly the voice). Most of these kids are more like spoken word poets than emcees or rappers anyway. I think the best of them are Dose and Slug. Actually I also got ahold of Hemispheres and I think that is some real cool shit. The beats are dope, and Dose flows kinda nice, it's a new style, but it works for me. I also like the Them track on the CD, that shit is innovative. Props. I think Slug is kinda cool but I haven't heard any of his tapes, just his shit on the CD. I am not really into any of those other cats.
Oh yes...."the rage of the mic."
that is exactly my point.
It's "the rage of the mic" that people are loseing focus on.
If kids would just put all of thier energy into "the rage of the mic", than hip hop would be in a better state.
It would be in "the rage of the mic" state.
I hate when these kids diss and have no idea about "the rage of the mic."
I mean ....this children of Wutang have never realy been involved with "the rage of the mic"
Yo! and if kids would stop listenin' to method man and red man than they would be able to feel "The Rage of the Mic"
Yo keep up the energy yall and try and find "the rage of the mic" in what ever hiphop is to you.
know me huh?
youknowme: first of all don't generalize people because you got your illumination about people comin under influence of other folks... there's many individuals like that for sure. but liking a certain emcee doesn't mean to belong to this category. when i listen to an emcee, his background story, rumors and shit are not included in my judgement. i don't let anybody to tell me what i must think.
then about your "theory" for the emcees growin up and realize some sort of things and focus more on their music and their business... i don't really think you get it. that's exactly the "period" of an emcee from which i become wack. i'm sorry but all i love in hiphop is this energy and this "i'd like to bring hiphop to another level" shit. i like when it's raw, when they're a bit too ambitious, ... the rage of the mic. because at this point it's straight from the heart, all you want is to kick ass.
when they "grow up", they're just not in it anymore.
Anticon is not straight up hip hop in any sense. They are more like indie rockers. And The case with Dose and Pedestrian is that their voices are more like another instrument, not really like an MC. Pedestrian's show was real interesting. A band with a violin, sax and drummer. I am not sure if I like Anticon, but Dose and Pedestrian are the best out the gate.
You all Listen to music that someone has told you to liten to, because that person thinks it's dope.
like this site for instance.
just because this site says that an album/12 inch what ever is "HOT" does not mean it is worth listening to.
It is so Pathetic in how you all are just as mindless as the MTV culture.
In a few years you will eather be out of hiphop or you will realize how ignorant about music you realy were.
Remember you all new jacks.
Don't get offended...it's reality....if you started realy getting into hiphop or "underground" hip hop any time in the '90's
you are a "new jack" and you realy have no grasp on the culture or the art ...
it's all a "who has the biggest dick contest" to you all now..
don't you see how mc's give up battling and start focusing more on their music and business after years of being a 19-25 year old kid.
they realize that this whole Childish "getting bitter at artists or rappers because they are different or not conformed to the same repetetive music makeing" is a waste of time..
but if yall want to stay being hiphop "pond scum" than thats fine because your young bitterness is amusing.
..Prestige...word...that was an incredible lp..good call..not a bad track to be found on there...."that old pagan shit"....he's interesting and fresh...something that can be said about only a very verrry few artists today...period dot com
i agree with a lot on you ..that he`s sounds god awfull sometimes ..especially when i first heard him ...but im like used to him now ...like he has very good content ..but sometimes he speaks in dolphin language to me ..but i give him props 4 one major thing ..he`s has HIS OWN STYLE.peace
He's actually the only cat worth peepin in the Anticon crew.
dose's flow is a bit special... it depends on your taste. personnally i like it except when he really abuses. if you don't like this style because it's too abstract then go listen to Circus (shapeshifters, also down with anticon) and tell me... he sounds like a old drunken. lol
but please respect people putting effort to do something different in hiphop these days, these guys deserve mad props for that.
peace and respect
I think that Anticon album is wack as hell. I only bought that shit because of this damn board. I don't know what the hell is wrong with ya'll. Three decent songs, not dope, decent. I only listened to the once and barely got through it. Shit was unbearable. That shit sucks and I'll probably sell that shit back.
I think he has the lyrics to be a great MC but his voice is just fucking annoying as hell, word to that. I'm not feeling that flow of his that he probably picked up hanging around ciphers by crack-addicts. He needs to be himself I think, he sounds so fake rhyming like that, and gay too.
dose one is dope, i couldn't stand him the first time i heard him in columbus at roots, but he's dope, it's kids like him that allow anyone else to be creative, but since he doesn't rock ecko and some hiking boots and says what's up dun i geuss he's not hip hop.
Dose one is an acquired taste...I personally am really into him..but he is abstract...I haven't taken his Hemispheres LP out of my tape deck yet...
dose is not wack hes fucking dopefreshhypeillcooll in my opinion but hes not for everybody . . .hip hop music for the advanced listener. . hahahaha.
its not easy being green
No doubt, sounds like he is trying to fake Bizzy Bone.
