So I feel like a black sheep in the BIONICLE community because I enjoy hip-hop more over than the more popular, umbrella term, rock genre(s) in the BIONICLE community. My question is are there any hip hop fans out there in the BIONICLE community?
Now before you bash on me for “bad taste” in music, that’s cool and all. That’s your opinion. As an occasional producer (not just hip-hop… hint hint), I understand why some music is terrible to you as it is beautiful to me. You may enjoy Iggy Azala but I can’t stand her for my own (many) reasons.
My favorite artists include:
Notorious B.I.G (ima get shot for putting the two next to each other…)
Your Old Droog
Jay-Z (kinda, childhood bias probably)
Kanye West (his older stuff. Post 808s era is a nightmare imo)
Nujabes (Rest in peace)
J. Dilla (Rest in peace)
Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five
The Real Slim Shady (his older stuff)
…And wayyyyy more (yes, there’s much much more haha)
Side note, I don’t listen to just hip hop. I listen to a lot of the blues and jazz, listen to rock [Queen, AC/DC, Muse, and Linkin Park (numetal tho) are pretty dope] occasionally, tons of classic/soundtrack (about 20% of music library), and dabble in alternative quite frequently (Foster the People, MGMT, Gorillaz). For some reason, a lot of people think I have terrible taste in music just because I listen to hip hop a lot
Sorry for the long post . Question still stands, are you a hip hop fan?
I like a little bit of hip hop, such as A Tribe Called Quest, Beastie Boys, early Eminem. I dig albums like Illmatic by Nas and Endtroducing by DJ Shadow, and I think I liked the Wu-Tang Clan’s debut a decent amount. That’s most of the rap I can think off the top of my head, I’ll probably remember more later
Edit: Oh, yeah I forgot I heard Kendrick’s new album this year and also Big Fish Theory by Vince Staples, also from this year. Not bad
