Craig Mack - Flava In Ya Ear (ReMix)

Those into classic hip-hop should love this song.

Rampage and LL Cool J both are meh, but Mack, BIG, and Busta all kill it.

I don't' think rap should be considered music. It's just not sung words to a beat .

then your clearly ignorant.

rap is deffinatly music, sure they dont sing but thats quite frankly irrelevent. many many early musical composers didnt have vocals and it was just music. and i highly doubt youll argue with me there. rap is deffinatly music and if you actually listen to the artists i posted and maybe a few of the links youll agree that the poetry in it far surpasses almost any other rock song. you cant let it get in your head that rap is just made of lil wayne, drake, and other crappy artists. cause its not, you just have to look a little harder cause your not going to find it on the radio.

if i may suggest a website for you so you can help your insight and actually here some good rap, id suggest Digital Dream Door. this is a VERY good website with all sorts of list. take a look, look up a few of the artists, get back to me

Nas and Z-ro are my favorite rappers hands down. Argue all you want.

idk why we would. nas kicks major ***. ether is one of the best diss songs ever

Oh, and eyedea links!

Song by Eyedea and his DJ partner Abilities, the two known as Eyedea & Abilities together (herp derp).  Abilities is also a fantastic DJ/producer.

Burn Fetish

Oh, and he was also a great freestyler.  Here's him winning Blaze Battle 2000 by utterly destroying the rapper Shells (Eyedea was 18 in this, and it is a little NSFW in places so be warned).
