    Realised I haven't really participated in the music forum yet!
    Virgin post!

    David Lynch Hip-Hop, Surreal rap? Emo-hop?....

    [[watch it in HD on youtube !]]

    Just did a video re-edit, video remix of sorts
    of footage of a great track by the hip hop artist Lil B ,
    a member of bay area(san fransisco) rap group
    THE PACK who had a hit with the
    track Vans.

    This is very different though, It maybe Emo-Hip hop,
    surreal rap, I dunno,.It's definately not the guns
    and glamour bling hip-hop out there.

    a new direction of somekind,
    Lil B calls it "BASED".

    Tell me what you think,PASS ON THE VIDEO,
    i think it'll turn a few heads.Someone is trying
    something original and different.

    I'm really liking these two.

    Very stylized ambient with sporadic poetic musings. I was admittedly skeptical but I have to commend him, he's doing his thing.

    Good critique!

    I personally love this track he did
    "street dreams"....

    The music is on the more soulful Common/kanye end,
    but the lyrics are still in his patented
    BASED style.

    His website/blog(?)
    just goes beyond music and is somekind of
    X-files Hip Hop repository.

    At the Basedworld site, at the moment they are talking
    about the 52 hand blocking system developed by African American prisoners.

    I think alot of people are following him
    online for his esoteric intreasts
    not just his music

    Arklight... honestly thought that was one of the worst rap tracks I've heard in a long time. "I'm so wet a pussy get jealous." Really? This is supposed to be a step up from regular misogynistic rap nonsense?

    If I want rap with an interesting message, I'll stick with K'naan.

    Oooooh, you just didnnnt.

    K'naan is kool. He's been knocking around for a while.
    It really depends what you want.

    If you want grown up Hip Hop, that's mature and
    probably wears a cardigan in the evening, you're going
    to be listening to Common or Mos Def
    . Maybe the Roots.

    Lil B is mad young.I like him because I know Lil
    Wayne is a big influence , but what he does with
    that influence is intreasting. ...

    lil b- we can go down[watch in HD on youtube]

    I feel it's the start of something, the younger
    hip hop generation breaking out somehow with
    there own style.Away from the 40 year old rappers.
    Even if we don't like it.

    He's not doing the street stuff or
    the "concious artist stuff".It's something else.

    But Of course if you like the STREET STUFF....

    Pill - "Glass"[watch in HD on youtube]

    Fat joe- "hey Joe"[watch in HD on youtube]

    Hendrix sampled for the fourth or fifth time in large parts
    on a hip hop song, on the above methinks.

    Lil B, keep doing what you're doing!

    Yup Lil B is flowing with some david Lynch juice..
    Look at this video...

    Lil B- "August 17th"

    He just stares at the Camera. Creating that same
    uneasy David Lynch vibe seems to conjure.

    If David Lynch was going to remake
    Twin Peaks with a hip hop soundtrack, he'd have Lil B
    on a couple of tracks for sure...

    Lil B- "Im Heem"

    And the darker corners of his site
    has stuff like this...

    Chi Zen Baby falling nano technolgy

    Premier Grimy Hip Hop Blog COCAINE BLUNTS did an even better job of
    defining the Lil B Phenomena and how it could only be created today
    also loads of good comments from the Hip Hop fandom pro and against...
