Rap artists that made me appreciate the genre and made me listen to it almost exclusively for a while

Rap is a very simple genre of music compared to many others, but it really highlights the slight nuances in the little things. The flow of the artist, construction of the rhymes, message behind the lyrics, bassline in the beat and the beat itself and the creativity required to make it unique, tone of the voice and the poetic way different languages work on a hip hop beat.

Rap artists that made me appreciate the genre and made me listen to it almost exclusively for a while

The simplicity has made a lot of people think that anyone can make good rap and we get youtubers making these cringy rap videos. When the style is simple every single detail needs to be brilliant. Mistakes and amateurish composition are so much more easier to notice and it really makes me appreciate the artists that got me deep into this genre.

Here are a some of those amazing artists..

Mos Def

I've been looking for beats that really hit deep and make me disappear into the music and hearing Auditorium for the first time... Let's just say I was so into it that I got so lost in my thoughts that didn't notice that song had been over for minutes when I came to. Mos Def's flow is out of this world amazing..


Ghostface Killah

Talking about simple, GhostFace Killah's Sour Soul is one of those rap songs where everything is just perfect to the smallest detail. I wouldn't change a thing and his style of rap just fits like a glove.


Julma Henri

A Finnish rap artist that I'd heard before, but now I found a whole new appreciation for the guy. Considered as sort of an underground artist and you can really hear it in the songs why.


Asa

Sort of same as the one before, Finnish artist I'd been listening to for a long time, but found new aspects in his rap. His messages behind his songs are always interesting and he's definitely my favorite of all Finnish artists.


A Tribe Called Quest

The chillest rap you will ever hear. Open a beer, jump on a hammock and let life flow around you...


Keny Arkana

You want rap that hits you in the guts and leaves you dazed.. you got it! Such power in her rap and in French? Yes please...


Busdriver

Try and keep up, he will make you dizzy.. I love the kind of flow and varying tone he can keep up with the super fast rhyming.


Thank you for reading and hopefully listening!

  • I am glad you appreciate underground artists, but you left out some great mainstream artists like Eminem and Nas. La Caution is a French rap group you may of heard of them as they have a good flow too. I personally like Eminem and Mike Shinoda.

    • Oh don't get me wrong, I really like many of the mainstream ones too, but it's the underground ones that really got me into the genre.

    • That is fine as it is good to hear there are fans like you that appreciate the talent and unique styles of the underground scene. Have you heard of Lupe Fiasco's song "Bitch Bad" or Stormzy's song "Shut UP"?

    • Akala is good too. Both Akala and Stormzy are great mcs especially at freestyle verses-check their fire in the booth videos. Take care. Thank you for sharing.

  • solid list. love mos def. tribe is one of the best no doubt. ghostface killah awesome as well.
