    From 2000-2003 an epic onslaught of nerdy pretentious elitist white rappers came out of the woodwork and managed to take hip-hop into some of it's worst years ever...

    I'm talking about
    Sage Francis
    Dose One
    Anticon
    Deep Puddle Dynamics
    clouddead
    Aesop Rock
    MC Paul Barman
    Hot Karl

    And many others.

    I tried listening to their stuff again a couple of weeks ago and just could not do it....

    :snoop:

    Hot Karl was a 00s era indie white rapper that never got on.

    Had some hot tracks produced by 9th Wonder. I thought he was black til I saw his picture...

    I came to the conclusion EL-P and Cannibal Ox and Cage were the highlights of Def Jex in the 00s.

    Fantastic Damage is still one of my favorite albums of all time. Anything El-P produced is fire.

    Def Jux was cool, so was Rhymesayers

    RJD2's deadringer :jawalrus:

    can't really stand Sage Francis or Aesop Rock more so with their voices, they're probably the shyttiest ones I've heard. Hard to tolerate that shyt for more than one track

    I don't know if i'd class Copywrite with those guys. He was more of a traditional punchline rapper. Aesop really grew on me over time but yeah, I can easily see why some hate him. I agree with the TS on the rest of those cats being absolute trash though. :scust:Indie heads would really argue with you that Sage Francis is better than Jay-Z with a straight face. The struggle voices:scust:The struggle flows :scust:. As much as we complain about Future/Drate stans etc, those guys are nowhere near as insufferable as the element of underground rap fans who hyped these wack nerd rappers up at that time. Same annoying fans who used to whine about any freestyle not being of the top of the head and hated any gun bars in battles (while themselves hyping the most cliche "you look like" rhymes). I don't know if that sort is still around on other boards, or if they stopped listening to rap altogether, but i'm glad I don't encounter them here.
