state of Hip Hop

This is to all new Emcees and inspiring artist.
Before you go to record your demo or album, please listen and study these artist and albums in any paticular order:

Boogie Down Productions: Criminal Minded
Public Enemy: It Takes A Nation of Millions
A Tribe Called Quest: Midnite Marauders
De La Soul: 3 Feet High and Rising
Redman: Dare Iz A Darkside
Kool G Rap: Road To The Riches
Big Daddy Kane: Long Live The Kane
Nas: Illmatic
Dr. Dre: The Chronic
O.C.: Word Life
The Alkaholics: 21 and Over
RUN DMC: RUN-D.M.C.

Study their lyrics, patterns, flows, rhythms and concepts.
I'm afraid that the state of core Hip Hop is being lost. Pop rap, R&B Hip Hop, abstract underground
is all good, but we also need core Hip Hop like the albums listed above.
