If you really like rap, or if you like intelligent meaningful rap, please check out Chill Bump. These two guys, one rapper one beatmaker, are from france but speak english. I started out downloading one EP and now I have all their music and they’re one of my favorite all time artists. You can get all of their EPs for free on bandcamp (http://chillbump.bandcamp.com) and I guarantee if you listen to some of their songs or download all their EPs, you’ll want to buy their first album that they just released, Ego Trip. These guys are rising in popularity in France and Europe but I really think America could use and appreciate their music. They rap about real meaningful ideas, the shitty state of rap today, stories, partying, and almost have their own philosophy. I don’t think they are given the credit they deserve. The beats are awesome and really original, with lots of movie sound clips too. Give it a shot. Favorites: It’s Alive, Five Minute Breather, Raise Up, One Way Ticket, and all of it really
I love Flatbush Zombies, The Underachievers, and Clockwork Indigo which is the combination of the first 2 groups. They rap about psychedelics, spirituality, drugs, and the new age consciousness movement. It is really enlightening music if you like intelligent and meaningful rap. Some great songs are Herb Shuttles, Palm Trees, Gold Soul Theory. Joey Bada$$ and Proera are also great new age rap artists.
