Once in a blue moon I post hip-hop here on ThinkSoul25.com, but that’s mainly because I’m not into a lot of the commercial hip-hop that is on the airwaves. I love hip-hop, but I prefer oldschool or underground hip-hop that is conscious, or at least true to it’s roots with an earthy vibe that has true musicianship.
Some rappers just spit out random words and catchy hooks, but then you’ve got artists that pay attention to the art of lyricism…artists such as Kendrick Lamar. I’m definitely a fan of Kendrick Lamar and his new music video for “Poetic Justice” featuring Drake is worth checking out.
You’ve probably heard the song, which samples Janet Jackson “Anytime, Anyplace” and usually I hate when rappers sample classic tracks that shouldn’t be touched, but this one gets my seal of approval. I’m digging it, and I like the video too. Oh, and I’m so anti-Drake, so for me like this song/video, it must be good. LOL :)
