Also loving Jay Rock and Nipsey Hussle. West Coast actually is making a bit of a comeback with those two and Game, though all 3 are very hit and miss for me, they seem to either pick awesome or awful beats and nothing in between.
Ok so I am looking to find some new music and I'm looking for the kind that will fire me up. Now from a Hip Hop side of things I am a fan who is probably 75% production and 25% vocals, there are plenty of songs where I don't even listen to the lyrics as long as they don't take away from the beat...
So, based on the following songs, which are some of my favourites can anyone who feels like it link me to some similar types of tracks.
So yeah... anything similar to any of the above would be great!
Cheers Tackle. Ante Up is one I know that certainly fits. Not huge on the Biggie one, Gucci Beat is good but he just seems to dominate over the top of tracks instead of being part of them which irks me. NJD track is sick, hadn't heard that before. Really liking Ya Boy also, he comes hard on that D12 beat.
Another couple of beats that fit what I'm seeking would be Still Dre and **** Can Happen(D12).
Basically that sort of pounding beat but not dominated by the pounding.
