    even back then those acts were niche, so there were plenty of ppl saying they were wack back THEN
    i'll admit i listened to some of that stuff and you're right it was really about being able to name drop cause really the music wasn't all that
    i feel that way about these run the jewels albums everybody be hyping, that shyt wack to me
    but you right that music aged horribly and as a "movement" it really never went anywhere and those guys will just be forgotten footnotes in the history of hip hop

    Same thing happened to me when I put on 7L & Esoteric's Dangerous Connection a few weeks ago



    I still like this beat and his verses are cool....until you realize that's the extent of what he has to offer. Punchlines and empty threats. Rhyming for the hell of it and not in the best of ways

    "The engineer said I'd better relax
    'fore I kill you in the booth and leave you dead in your tracks
    Put your head in the cracks, my agenda's
    takin out fake 5%ers like federal tax"

    :childplease:

    This dude aint stepping to no 5%er, fake or otherwise :rudy:


    Voice is absolutely awful though and I knew it back then but "real hiphop :krs:" kept my dumb ass listening

    You have to be out your goddamn mind if you think this track is garbage. :hhh:

    And I wasn't even super big on Jurassic like that. There are plenty of tracks you could have picked besides that one to show you weren't feeling them. But this is one of their best songs.

    The premise of the OP post is on point though. I lived in the underground hip-hop world (shyt, still do, lol) from about '97 on. Stayed buying indie 12 inch vinyl, listening to Stretch and Bob, hitting up shows and all that. And I could never fukk with any of that Anticon, Paul Barnum, etc shyt.
    Shyt was beyond basura even back then to me.

    I don’t mess with most of that garbage but Sage has some tracks whether you want to admit it or not. And he’s more knowledgeable about hip hop than the vast majority of folks on this site (any site, really). I know that doesn’t mean his music is good, but he’s got skills regardless. No, I’m not Sage Francis.

    The rest of that list is trash, but I can't cosign Aesop and Paul Barman slander. They can actually rhyme, and do/have worked with some official cats.

    You bugging. J5 is Hip-Hop, the problem was they were TOO Hip-Hop and not corny/gimmicky enough for mainstream. 5 guys rapping and doing routines with a DJ is about as Hip-Hop as a music grouo can get. They probably would have been gods in the 80s.
