Any good podcasts to recommend or magazines to read?

    i "try" to make beats at home (when im not with my bandmates) and that's lead me to frequent several other forums and ive gotten most of my suggestions from there. also i just find someone i like say for instance RJD2 (back when he was on Def Jux) then id check out the record label and give a listen to other artist.

    hell i even browse undergroundhiphop.com and just check out the most recently released albums, maybe jot a few down and give a listen to them on itunes.

    also if you use itunes ill usually type in an artist and check out the section "other users purchased" ive found a few artist (alucard, black milk and others) that way.

    I was lucky enough to have some friends who happened to love the music when we were in high school and college but nowadays Trance has taken over much of their discographies. I've used Youtube for a long long time in order to find new artists and generally random forums based on my google searches. However as of late I've been using Last.fm to find similar artists to the ones I already like and it's been a great help , it's free and you can always rely on Youtube to listen to the songs before buying them.

    I have to say thought most of the underground artists displayed on Last.fm are a pain to find in any disc or digital stores. But you never know what you're going to find.

    Seriously, the best spot to look for new artists IMO are different Blogspots, and most will have download links for you. The number of great music artists(not just hip-hop) I've found through music blogspots. My favorite being Musical Schizophrenia. Lately they've been posting a few other genres, but overall it's a great site.

    Having one genre make up your discography is a travesty.

    A coworker got this stuck in my head. Since I'm no fan of Diddy, and Busta destroys the chorus for me, I prefer the instrumental.

    Could you please name some for me?

    I appreciate your trolling and all, but it would be more impressive if it served a greater purpose.

    Just sayin'.

    He's not trollin...it's a well known fact that Handlebars is the worst song on that CD (and it's still good, so that says a lot)

    Their new song is pretty awesome

    I look for other artists through artists I already like. For example, Hiero put me onto Souls. Both put me onto Zion I. Zion I toured with Aceyalone, who in turn put me onto the Latryx crew. From there I found Gab and Shadow, who put me onto a bunch of other people.

    Mos Def -> Kewli, Common -> Mos Def.

    Speaking of Common, here's some Common from back in the day with that HEAT:







    Common's pretty underrated. I don't like what he's done lately, but he has 5 extremely solid Hip-Hop albums, one of them (Resurrection) I believe to be one of the best Hip-Hop albums ever.

    I have to say Resurrection has to be one of my favorite albums of all time. Common has kinda lost track of his south-side of Chicago rawness but he's still a pretty cool guy. I prefer his earlier albums thought.


    This is the song that introduced me to NO I.D. who does great hip-hop as well. His verse is excellent.


    Lauryn Hill is f'ing badass on this track you cannot deny it! also, Hells yeah for the Fugees!

    Wyclef solo albums are also noteworthy
    The Carnival
    The Ecleftic: 2 Sides II a Book

    @SirLegend: I like it raw too man , ODB is hilarious!


    Rhymes is rugged like burnt buildings in Harlem
    The Ol Dirty Bastard from the Temple of Shaolin
    Dirty to the brain like drops of acid rain
    Clang, clang, clang, rhymes pluckin at your brain
