4who4what I told you I'm the rap predator
You insist to imitate, what for?
Superstar niggaz is ten percent real,
Ninety percent invented for the fuckin' record deal
Comin' with something veterans can't feel
I hit you like a steel anvil
Because you grafted off the next man's skill... #ThePhoniestCatsIsFelonious

Normal The Rap Shaman
rapshaman_ An original classic. The sound on this record is always refreshing. It reminds me of just laying in the cut. #universeatwar #theroots #illadelphhalflife #philly #okayplayer #questlove #blackthought #malikb #rahzel #classic #raw #hiphop 3d

hiphopfromthesoul Im a huge fan of Black Thoughts word play & lyricism. He's so underrated.

Lost generation, fast paced nation
World population confront they frustration
The principles of true HIP-HOP have been forsaken
It's all contractual and about money makin
Pretend-to-be cats don't seem to know they limitation
Exact replication and false representation
You wanna be a man, then stand your own
To MC requires skills, I demand some shown And that's not even the entire verse

cvl8 Day 22 >>>> Check this out. Thought I'd do one more from The Roots' album, 'Illadelph Halflife'. I'm planning on trying a tune that's a bit different soon. So get keen!

The track is called "Concerto Of The Desperado". Join me and this ‘quest’ by following me (@cvl8) and the hashtag #50daysofQuestlove

But yeahhhh I'm always trying to find more and more jazz/Conscious hip hop. Once you get into the sub-genre you just can't stop listening 2w

  •   lukehiggins4 @kareemslick Hahaha nahhh. I was just kidding about this list. My real top 5 is, Black Thought, Nas, Andre 3000, Ghostface Killah, and Common 1w
  •   kareemslick @lukehiggins4 I just realized the names are all Black Thought smdh at myself lol 1w

  •   sk8972 @lukehiggins4 Why don't you have Nas as the GOAT you're sleeping! 1w
  •   lukehiggins4 @sk8972 King Nasir is #2, man! Haha! But I wouldn't turn my head if someone said that King Esco is better than Tariq. 1w

ron_instagrant #1GottaGo...SIKE!!!! I wouldn't do that to you IG! HAPPY #TBT / #THROWBACKTHURSDAY! I'm not sure why but I've been on a HEAVY throwback kick of #THEROOTS lately. I got these 4 in heavy ro in the whip currently. Which one is your fave? #ROOTSCREW #PHILLY #HIPHOP #BLACKTHOUGHT #QUESTLOVE #ILLADELPHHALFLIFE #THEROOTSCOMEALIVE #PHRENOLOGY #THETIPPINGPOINT 2w
  •   coinsismoney I'm working with Greg Porn on some heat with Thought on the low. I'll keep u posted lol 2w
  •   ron_instagrant Awwwww yiiiiiiis! That's a good look @coinsismoney ! 2w
  •   eeshrock Out of those 4, Illadelph Halflife is my fav as a whole. Then there are certain songs on the others that I live for! Like Star from Tipping Point and The Seed from Phrenology. U can never go wrong with The Legendary Roots Crew! 2w
  •   coinsismoney Thanks brother! I'll send u a early copy 2w
  •   ron_instagrant You really can't @eeshrock! Out of these 4 I'd say #PHRENOLOGY is my favorite. On the low it came and smacked the sh*t outta me and it was hella inventive. It's very hard picking an overall favorite Roots album. 2w
  •   eeshrock True, especially being that I have ALL of them. Lol. It's btwn Things Fall Apart & Illadelph for me. 2w
  •   ron_instagrant @eeshrock I'm gonna say #THINGSFALLAPART overall but still, it's a toughy. Haha! You hitting up the #ROOTSPICNIC???? 😀 2w

so_so_coco Ive been a fan of ?uestlove for a long time and even had the honour of going to his DJ set at the Jazz Cafe, which ruined my ears for any other playlist. Not only one of the best drummers ever, his skills are littered all over the music industry. But, NOW I see he's in the crowd watching D'Angelo roll out Black Messiah with the Vanguard. And it's over. I'm hating #howdarehe @questlove #theroots #questlove #fro #illadelphhalflife #thingsfallapart #dangelo #BlackMessiah #thevanguard #sugahdaddy #hater 3w
