Really mixing it up with this one: unique British underground. Big thanks to my buddy DH for this suggestion. I used to listen to a lot of The Streets (one dude) because it is oddly infectious. He pretty much talks all of his lyrics but somehow it still sounds good. My brother and I were talking about this over the weekend that in hip hop, there are really two beats within a song. The instrumentation and the rapping. Hip hop sounds good to me when syllables in the rap hit at the same time the beat does. Typically it is hard for me to get into stuff where those words and syllables don’t match up with the instrumentation (i.e. MF Doom). However, as my brother mentioned, sometimes the staggered words and beat will have something about them that makes it “listenable” and not a jumble. I can’t put my finger on what works and what doesn’t but The Streets is one of those rappers who I can listen to who doesn’t use a matched cadence.
