Don't believe we have a thread for this yet.

Anyways, anyone got a list of favorite songs? I'll probably post mine later today....this is going to be lengthy so I may try and keep it at 25 max...

"For Whom the Bell Tolls" - Metallica
"Calling in the Air Tonight" - Genesis
1. Great song, but not the best from Ride the Lightning. The best tracks from that album are Creeping Death and The Call of Ktulu.

2. That's a Phil Collins solo song.

I do.  Really in desperate need of a good rap song right about now.  I listened to that Riff Raff album (the guy who James Franco was inspired by for his role in Spring Breakers) and I'm just not sure what to make of this guy.  I can't tell if he's actually retarded or if he's parodying rap culture.  Last rap song I listened to was Childish Gambino's 3005.

Haha, alright. From what I've heard of that dude, I'd go with retarded but who knows.

Just for the record, prepare to be moderately disappointed- I've always been bad at finding new music so most of this stuff is fairly well known.

Don't really like Hopsin or Lupe Fiasco (though I do respect the latter for having some really positive music) but I pretty much like the rest.  Drake... I've always been iffy on.  I think he just doesn't really do much for me.  It's the instrumentals that make his sound much better.  The guy has no vocal range in all honesty and he doesn't develop. 

Btw, did you hear that Joe Budden track "Wake" where he completely destroys Drake?  I mean, Budden still loses cred for being absolutely obsessed with Drake, thinking every Drake song is about him. But damn, that track was dope.

The lack of MF Doom is kinda sad though.  Paasche, you really need to get down on Madvilliany instantly.  That album pretty much puts every other rapper to shame. 

I think Eminem is at his best when he does horrorcore.   My favorite song of his would be Kim.  It's truly a unique song that can't ever be matched in terms of disturbing content and just inventiveness. 

Kid Cudi was my sh*t when I was younger.  His last album was really bad but he's making Man on the Moon III so maybe we'll get that classic Mr. Eager vibe.

Jay Z is a rapper I dig from time to time.  He's a bit braggy about his stuff... but he's the best at that.  And I think I've stated my opinion on Kanye for quite some time now.  He's an ass.  But he makes art.
goodbye!

I like some of Lupe's stuff a lot, I dunno, I just really appreciate his style I guess. The Show Goes On is a song that I've always loved and is one of my very favorites. Hopsin I got into more recently and personally I think he's just insanely talented. His albums don't quite do it for me in the same way, but the Ill Minds are all great imo. As for Drake, I really like Thank Me Later and Take Care is one of my favorite albums ever. He kinda lost it after that for me though, most of his recent stuff has been garbage.

I heard that track, and yeah, it was pretty sick but the fact remains I've never heard of Joe Budden otherwise and Drake may be the most popular artist in the world right now. I don't really know any MF Doom honestly- I mean, I know the name but I don't know any of his stuff. I'll check him out, have any specific song recommendations?

Eminem may be my favorite artist ever, but we may have to disagree on this one. I listened to Kim back when I was really getting into Eminem and rap in general back in probably 7th grade and thought that song was the most fucked up thing I've ever heard. Can't really say much as to whether it's good or not, since I didn't have a solid background in the genre at that point and that song kinda got to me but I'm not sure I can revisit it honestly.

I love Kid Cudi's first album, and parts of Man on the Moon II, but I think he's definitely fallen off since then. Hopefully Man on the Moon III is good, but he's said that it's not going to be too similar to the other two so I dunno. His recent stuff hasn't given me a lot of confidence.

I love Jay-Z honestly: in eighth grade we had to write a paper on an artist and I wrote it on him, so I feel connected to him lol, but yeah, some of his stuff is pretty braggy and bad because of it. He is definitely the best at that sort of rap though, and when he delivers, damn is his shit good. Over those 12 or so albums there's definitely a lot of garbage but there are a bunch of great songs/albums too. I agree that Kanye's an ass irl, but I also love his stuff and I'd definitely say he's a true artist. Graduation and My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy are both incredible albums.

Also, quick shoutout to two songs that should've been on the honorable mentions list, Dance with the Devil by Immortal Technique (definitely fucked up, but it's a piece of art) and River Runs Deep by the Knowmads, which is kind of the less hardcore version of Dance with the Devil. Still a great song though.

Edit: Can't believe they sensor hardcore....

I remember listening to Kim at like 1am while laying in bed. I was paralyzed for the rest of the night, even when I needed to use the bathroom. That's a really disturbing song man.

Edit: Can't believe they sensor hardcore....

I enjoy Take Care and Thank Me Later too.  But he's getting lazy.  "Got so many chains, they call me Channing Tatum" was honestly the worst line from Views.  It made no sense really.  Then again, there were a lot of awful lines.  "I get green like Earth day"... lol.

And I'm not really surprised you don't know who Joe Budden is.  He's that guy who made that song Pump it Up like... 13 years ago and has never had a hit single.  He's always killing it in freestyles, but never has he made a successful album.

For MF Doom tracks, look no further than Meat Grinder from Madvilliany.  The Frank Zappa intro was kinda sluggish but when the actual song starts like 30 seconds into the video, Madvillain just kills it.

  https://youtu.be/x8Ru8d0l_fU 

I find Kim to be such a worthwhile song.  I get that it's not a song you can put on and listen to easy as it's very disturbing and Kim actually did try to kill herself in real life because of the song, but damn, it's just way too different to pass up.  It's not a song I'd listen with friends at a party but when I'm alone, and I'm in the mood for something dark, I turn it on... or just look in a mirror.  I also liked Same Song and Dance from Relapse.  It's kinda disturbing also, but more jokey.

And well, if that's true about Cudi, I guess he really has lost it.  It's Jaden Smith, man.  They've been hanging out and that influence is ruining him.

Yeah, if I'm gonna hear anyone brag about what they have, it's Jay Z.  Not some half assed kid who I can barely understand (Young Thug).

I remember listening to Kim at like 1am while laying in bed. I was paralyzed for the rest of the night, even when I needed to use the bathroom. That's a really disturbing song man.

I normally don't like TGWTG content but Rap Critic put together a list of the most disturbing Eminem songs.  Kim was #3.  His #2 and #1 picks were pretty neat too.  He's pretty cringey but I like some of the insight he provides.

While I'm always solid on my favorite films list and (to a lesser extent) favorite bands list, I find it next to impossible to maintain a favorite songs list. It changes for me at least once a week. This will require a lot of thinking.

Honestly, I'm curious about both. I'm always looking for good rap music, and you and Cutler seem like good sources. Plus, your non-rap music should be interesting, seeing as we don't know much (if anything) about your music taste outside of rap.

I like some of Lupe's stuff a lot, I dunno, I just really appreciate his style I guess. The Show Goes On is a song that I've always loved and is one of my very favorites. Hopsin I got into more recently and personally I think he's just insanely talented. His albums don't quite do it for me in the same way, but the Ill Minds are all great imo. As for Drake, I really like Thank Me Later and Take Care is one of my favorite albums ever. He kinda lost it after that for me though, most of his recent stuff has been garbage.

I heard that track, and yeah, it was pretty sick but the fact remains I've never heard of Joe Budden otherwise and Drake may be the most popular artist in the world right now. I don't really know any MF Doom honestly- I mean, I know the name but I don't know any of his stuff. I'll check him out, have any specific song recommendations?

Eminem may be my favorite artist ever, but we may have to disagree on this one. I listened to Kim back when I was really getting into Eminem and rap in general back in probably 7th grade and thought that song was the most fucked up thing I've ever heard. Can't really say much as to whether it's good or not, since I didn't have a solid background in the genre at that point and that song kinda got to me but I'm not sure I can revisit it honestly.

I love Kid Cudi's first album, and parts of Man on the Moon II, but I think he's definitely fallen off since then. Hopefully Man on the Moon III is good, but he's said that it's not going to be too similar to the other two so I dunno. His recent stuff hasn't given me a lot of confidence.

I love Jay-Z honestly: in eighth grade we had to write a paper on an artist and I wrote it on him, so I feel connected to him lol, but yeah, some of his stuff is pretty braggy and bad because of it. He is definitely the best at that sort of rap though, and when he delivers, damn is his shit good. Over those 12 or so albums there's definitely a lot of garbage but there are a bunch of great songs/albums too. I agree that Kanye's an ass irl, but I also love his stuff and I'd definitely say he's a true artist. Graduation and My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy are both incredible albums.

Also, quick shoutout to two songs that should've been on the honorable mentions list, Dance with the Devil by Immortal Technique (definitely fucked up, but it's a piece of art) and River Runs Deep by the Knowmads, which is kind of the less hardcore version of Dance with the Devil. Still a great song though.

Edit: Can't believe they sensor hardcore....

I enjoy Take Care and Thank Me Later too.  But he's getting lazy.  "Got so many chains, they call me Channing Tatum" was honestly the worst line from Views.  It made no sense really.  Then again, there were a lot of awful lines.  "I get green like Earth day"... lol.

And I'm not really surprised you don't know who Joe Budden is.  He's that guy who made that song Pump it Up like... 13 years ago and has never had a hit single.  He's always killing it in freestyles, but never has he made a successful album.

For MF Doom tracks, look no further than Meat Grinder from Madvilliany.  The Frank Zappa intro was kinda sluggish but when the actual song starts like 30 seconds into the video, Madvillain just kills it.

I find Kim to be such a worthwhile song.  I get that it's not a song you can put on and listen to easy as it's very disturbing and Kim actually did try to kill herself in real life because of the song, but damn, it's just way too different to pass up.  It's not a song I'd listen with friends at a party but when I'm alone, and I'm in the mood for something dark, I turn it on... or just look in a mirror.  I also liked Same Song and Dance from Relapse.  It's kinda disturbing also, but more jokey.

And well, if that's true about Cudi, I guess he really has lost it.  It's Jaden Smith, man.  They've been hanging out and that influence is ruining him.

Yeah, if I'm gonna hear anyone brag about what they have, it's Jay Z.  Not some half assed kid who I can barely understand (Young Thug).

I remember listening to Kim at like 1am while laying in bed. I was paralyzed for the rest of the night, even when I needed to use the bathroom. That's a really disturbing song man.

I normally don't like TGWTG content but Rap Critic put together a list of the most disturbing Eminem songs.  Kim was #3.  His #2 and #1 picks were pretty neat too.  He's pretty cringey but I like some of the insight he provides.

It's pretty funny you picked out that line actually- my brother and I both enjoy Pop Style (the version with Jay Z and Kanye anyways) as a bit of a guilty pleasure and whenever the "got so many chains they call me Channing Tatum" line comes on we both always yell it and then laugh for a bit about how terrible of a line that is. He's definitely gotten lazier from those first two albums but I'll always enjoy Thank Me Later and especially Take Care.

I'll listen to some more MF Doom for you- that track wasn't entirely my style but it was good. It's good for me to try and expand my artist pool anyways.

Maybe I'll give Kim another shot, could easily be something in the vein of Dance With the Devil where I don't want to listen to it all the time or even really enjoy hearing the song but rather appreciate it as a piece of art. Also, "look in the mirror". Lol.

Yikes, you know it's bad when Jaden Smith turns into a friend. But yeah, sadly I've almost given up on Kid Cudi. Just look at this article http://www.hotnewhiphop.com/kid-cudi-warns-fans-that-man-on-the-moon-3-will-be-nothing-like-previous-installments-news.18040.html.

I have a rap list and a non-rap list but I don't really feel like typing them out honestly since I don't think anyone really cares/
Honestly, I'm curious about both. I'm always looking for good rap music, and you and Cutler seem like good sources. Plus, your non-rap music should be interesting, seeing as we don't know much (if anything) about your music taste outside of rap.
I'm mildly embarrassed about what the non-rap list will look like (prepare for a lot of songs from a few artists, sorry) but I'll give it a shot later, since I'm leaving in a few and the rap one took me a while to type up.
