    What are your favorite current tv shows?

    Ditto, mainly sports, I watched WWE with a purpose for the first time in 7 years Monday night... Finally.... goosebumps when the music hit! Felt like I was 8 again. Apart from that, maybe the odd comedy panel show, or shows like Bear Grylls.

    UK Rap Scene

    Perfectly put, and just what I was thinking. I wouldnt call whats popular 'hip-hop', its more club music with a rapper on it and I don't truly believe that its the rapper on the song thats making it sell. If it was down to people liking pure hip hop, I'd say Twang and Mystro would be just as popular as Tinchy and so on. But they're not, so I think its boiling down to people liking club music more than the actual rhyming skill. There is a lot of talent out there though, Tinies doing big things, and his content is positive on the most part. But I dont think a pure 'hip hop' artist can come through without having to change their style to more grime/club, coz if it was possible, Twang and Diggi would be more popular, in my opinion.

    Da Rebirth - Industry of Angels

    Thanks for the feedback guys, glad you all like it, means a lot! @ Turn - Haha, 3rd verse the clincher? lol. Cheers, man!
  6. Putting out a song like this, I really don't think numbers or paper are on his mind. We're always saying on here how we want people to put 'real' true to life music out there, rather than following suit to sell records. Then when someone does it, we say 'bad move, wont sell well'. Are we ever sure what we want ourselves? I love it. My favourite artist out there currently.

    Da Rebirth - Airplanes (Remix)

    Appreciate the feedback man. I agree I need to start showing more emotion and personality in my delivery, hopefully that'll come with experience. I always consider myself a writer first, and a rapper second. Not the first person to say it reminds you of a british Eminem. Thanks for checking them out bro.
  10. So, I've finally started recording, some of you have heard it through Facebook already, but any further opinions would be much appreciated. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AnPZ_6TVrYI Download link: http://usershare.net/z69ic4gzt5u4

    Da Rebirth - Airplanes (Remix)

    I musta missed this, sorry bro. It was the Eminem Mixtape as you probably guessed. New mixtape this year, started already. Now I feel I've got the hang of recording a little better, heres a new version of Airplanes. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YLBMHO8zwtI and my latest track... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=74FQHz5kyxA
  13. EDIT: Just to add to what Brakes said, if anything, instead of criticising the likes on Em and Jay, you should be partially grateful that they are still selling quality hip hop and not becoming too consumed with gimmicks in their material. Recovery is one of the best things to happen to hip hop in the mainstream for a very long time.
  14. There were equivalents to Soulja Boy in the 80's and 90's too, Ted, don't forget that. Not every rapper from those decades are worthy of being considered any better than Soulja is, it just so happen that there was a lot more quality out back then that we didn't get to see them in the mainstream as often. I hate to say it Ted, but you're stuck in your ways. If you're talented, you're talented, regardless of when you started.
  15. Not really, there we're just s many wack artists out in the 'golden era' as there is now. They just weren't seen as wack because we didn't know any different at the time. They should be considered pioneers and respected as legends, but we cant slate them the 'best' just because they originated in a certain era. Kurtis Blow established hip hop in a major way, but is he really a better emcee than Eminem? If you're being honest with yourself, the answers probably no. Respect them? Yes. Place them on a pedastal just because they are originals? Not for me. Although Nas was in what we consider the 'golden era' of hip hop, its safe to say he wasn't one of the orignators from the 80's, but he's still 100 times better as an emcee than most from that decade. The same way we all say people need to check the history before calling someone 'the best' we also have to not be closeminded in that, there is some new artists out there who are very worthy of being considered 'the best'. And just because someone says Eminem or Jay Z are the best ever, without knowing who Tupac etc are, doesn't make them wrong! Thats my take anyway!

    Nelly Denies Starting Beef With KRS-ONE

    Nelly deserves way more credit that he gets, he may not make top 10 lists, but he's one of the more original/versatile artists to enter the mainstream over the last decade. I'm cool with dissing/beef/battles as long as it stays lyrical, when it turns into more than a verbal exchange, just makes everyone involved look idiotic. And, I think Eminem would be more than willing to go at KRS if he had a reason to do so. It'd be hard to call a winner too, in my opinion. No-one is untouchable.

    Jay-Z Disses Hammer, Hammer Responds!

    Exactly the point I've been making. @ Ted... every point you make is down to your opinion, you're not being objective. Not saying it makes you wrong or right, but if you look up to Hammer so much, lets do like him and, move on, coz this is going nowhere fast.

    Jay-Z Disses Hammer, Hammer Responds!

    Jay hasn't torn anyone down on his way to the top, hes there on merit, he's at the top now and took a shot at Hammer, if you can even call it that. Taking a shot at Hammer does nothing for him so I highly doubt he did it with intent to increase his rep. Plus, it's not even a diss, it's a fact. If FP or LL or Hammer made jokes on someone you'd probably get a kick out of it right? It's no different to a comedian making a joke about someone. Jiggas also created a lot of opportunities for people to come through and he gives back more than you give him credit for. He has no karma coming his way.

    Jay-Z Disses Hammer, Hammer Responds!

    Gay Z is not blindly hating? Changing his name to Knowles coz Bey has more power is not blindy hating? I have no problem with you saying those things but, c'mon son! Bottom line is, your problem is with how hip hop has evolved, and not with Jigga himself. Your opinion doesn't define good hip hop, what is real or anything along those lines. Theres people in this world that think Michael Jackson's music is wack and would never consider him as high or even in the debate for the legacy he has. Who cares? Like who you like, dont like who you dont like, but don't make it seems like your opinion is the only thing that matters, because if it was, Hammer would be outselling Jigga, and thats never gonna happen. Now I'm not saying that makes Jigga more talented or whatever, but it definitly means a lot more people appreciate his talent more than Hammers. Don't hate on the artists, commercially people always make music people want to hear, since music was invented its always been that way. It just so happens that whats popular now doesn't fit your preferences, but it doesn't make it bad. Plus, it wasnt even a diss, it was a fact. Hammers the maker of his own downfall, he blew his fortune, and Jigga could blow 30mil several times over and still be loaded. Its not a diss when its true, Hammers just embarassed he made mistakes that people could crack on/use. Jays not the first and he wont be the last. Fact!
