Jedi Mind Tricks
I got into a discussion with someone about Jedi Mind Tricks tonight. This person (Fingers), claims that Icon uses big words just for the hell of using big words, but I think his flow and wit are even better than his vocabulary. What do you think?
Ikon is white?
Damn... Then theres a major change in my list of best white rappers.
Way to act like an adult Souljah.
We were at someone's house and some rapper came up (Ghostface maybe, someone said he doesn't make sense so I said the type of people below make less sense), and I said I can't stand how a lot of white rappers or whoever all these artists people talk about on this site just use big words to rhyme.

Jedi Mind Tricks
J-Live and every other J in the book
I think that Chalice line that 808 mentioned is what I was thinking of. I don't know who it was that made me think of it, but I said Jedi Mind because it popped into my head. Out of the people I listed, I MIGHT have heard 10 songs total, so I don't know who it is. I do know that the songs I heard had guys with shitty voices, pretty bland and uninteresting beats.
I don't feel like listening to nerds rattle off buzz words. Even if the lyrics make sense, the songs sucked.
Icon is friggin DOPE.. ya'll dat have seen this brova live can agree.. Jedi Mind Tricks ain't for the faint hearted so I can see why sum of ya'll ain't feelin them.. Theres sum real HIP HOP for that ass..
I wonder how Sexecutioner and Fingas got into this conversation.. after hot passoinate FAGGOT sex.. hahahaha I know you suck fingas off boy.. hahahahahaha
JMT isn't avant garde... Not only that, but you're telling us that WE'RE condescending? It's funny, but we're just defending them, not lashing at you. If someone talked shit about Jadakiss though-- people wouldn't hear the end of it.
Ikon's flow is extremely weak.
Isn't it funny how these "advanced listeners" act so bitterly condescending towards people who don't listen to pseudo-poetic avante-garde emo-hop and then pop in a poor man's Killarmy whenever their testosterone levels occasionally rise to average?
i'd like to see them live..
All you Jedi Mind fans should check them out at "Back 2 Skool" a weekly party at Grape St. Pub every other thurs.
They'll be there on the 29th.
Jedi Mind are dope as fuck, and thats it. Oh and I agree... "I who have nothing" is the best song on the first one. And how do you front on a line like "Ability to endure contradiction is a high sign of culture."
if you *listen* to the lyrics from the 1st jmt album, you will discover how incredible dope it is..not only big words..some of it actually makes sense..but my favorite track from the album still is "i who have nothing"
Who else has his style with big words / freddie fox scarred voice?
Their first album was dope, how can anyone not like that style?
yeah they do a shitload of shows, check their tour dates out at www.superegular.com
Manipulation of the Human Coincessnes is the worst album I have ever heard. Not 1 of icons raps made sense to me, full of big words and biblical referances .... 'blah blah blah chalis of christ yip yip yap'
sorry these guys don't interest me at all, must appeal to some kids though, a lot seam to be on their nuts.
I swapped my JMT LP for Onyx - Ah And We Do It Like This 12"
Word to that
Yeah.. Well, fingers just said Jedi Mind Tricks as an example of groups I like that he doesn't, I don't think he meant to specifically refer to them. But I have to say, Icon has slowly become one of my favorite voices in rap. Speaking of which, I'm going to school close enough to Philly where I could take a train... Do they perform a lot?
