    1. 2Pac
    2. Wu-Tang Clan
    3. Canibus

    Fav Songs by them
    2Pac- "Hit 'em Up" Best Diss Track ever written, ahead of "How to Rob" and even "Ether"

    Wu-Tang Clan- "Bring Da Ruckus"- not their most popular, but I like it

    Canibus- "Poet Laureate II"- 7 minutes of rhyme, 4 different beats...shows off Can's flexibility.

    I mean Ghost is great, Fishscale was a sick album. When you look back at the Wu, damn they had an all star lineup. Meth, Ghost, Gza, ODB...I don't think we'll ever see a rap super group like that for a long time.

    Great songs....im not the biggest eminem fan but i respect him as a great lyricist and i do like that song. I just downloaded his first cd infinite the other day, that **** is crazy.

    On platinum plus, that 2nd verse was done by big daddy kane.

    Beware...pun killed it, and i love the beat with the prodigy sample.

    Respiration...one of my favorite songs, I've smoked many times to that.

    On the Platinum Plus song I thought the 2nd verse was only with Xzibit because at the end of his verse he says "Xzibit, styles I kick wit it, pardon me but I'm fukin sick wit it."

    Plus it sounds like Xzbit...if you think otherwise let me know because I don't like confusing different guys.

    About the other songs....
    Platinum Plus would be a great song to put in a Big L movie. Have that song play at the final credits when the movie is over. Damn that would be a grand finale.

    Beware is just one of the best beats I ever heard and Pun did kill it, I agree.

    I wish i listened to Respiration more when I burn....but yea amazing song when you smoke.

    Eminem really surprises people. You wouldn't think some white kid from Detroit can spit like he does. Sing for the moment just lays out everything in one song and goes great with the Aerosmith background. Mixed up a slow rock/rap beat.

    Video

    im 100% sure its big daddy kane

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ])

    thats one of my favorite dj premier beats

    And i gotta give eminem his credit. I used to hate him...hes still not one of my favorites but i respect him, especially when i hear some of these new garbage ass rappers like plies and soulja boy. Lyrically eminem is elite...the way he effortlessly put the multis together....he made it sound easy to have 3 or 4 words rhyming from one line to the next. Theres a big pun song where he rhymes 8 words from one line to the next...I forget which song it is but I never heard of any rapper out doing that.

    Anyone who wants to download eminems first cd (infinite), here it is

    This sh!t was crazy, back before dre signed him and he started doing some of those silly songs like "hi my name is"

    I looked up Platinum Plus and your right. It was Big Daddy Kane.

    I agree that rap right now has gone down hill. Souljaboy is a joke that would get slaughtered by a guy like Eminem if they ever battled. Imagine Big L against these fools like Jim Jones/Mike Jones/Bonecrusher/50 Cent lmfao...he'd murder all of them with a mic.

    MSG, you listen to any undeground guys out there?

    Examples
    Immortal Technique
    Saigon
    Lupe Fiasco
    Mos Def
    Talib Kwelli

    You know any really good underground guys that you think will get big soon?

    I take an interest to underground beats and rappers more than the famous ones. Underground is just more real and the lyrics aren't hollywood shyt like 50 Cent.

    MSG: There's a Benefit song released while back (at least 4 years prob. more) that samples the Super Mario Brothers theme. I know Cocoa Brovaz and a whole ton of other people sampled it, but Benefit's song is about playin Super Mario Brothers, and how he wants to f*(k the princess, it's hysterical...you should look for it.

    I like 50 cent but i know that skill wise there are many rappers who are better then him.

    I dont listen to saigon, i liked lupe's first cd. I listen to mos def, talib, and immortal technique. I believe the best music came from the 90's....groups like black moon, wu-tang, mobb deep, children of the corn...etc.

    I used to listen to immortal technique alot. I got revolutionary vol 1 and 2, but thats it. Hows his newer stuff?
