"Name artists you slept on for no good reason"


  

          

I slept on Royce for damn ever! I knew he was nice but I was busy chasing elsewhere. But, damn it, he is one of the greatest.

Wait let me explain!!!

I was generally underwhelmed at the time with the G Funk era. Namely because my dad was heavy into funk and I thought it was just easy recycling of music I knew really well. I felt like he was doing what Puffy was doing sampling super recognizable beats.

It wasn't until the Chronic 2001 did I start to recognize the production value of what he was doing. Actually Death Row released a live instrument album before that and I started appreciating the musicianship of Dre.

That's all.

Besides being aware of Pump It Up, I've never actually heard anything else he's ever made. It wasn't until I started listening to the podcast and was in the gym one day that I decided to give his playlist some run. Can't believe it took me this long

How About Some Hardcore came out on the House Party 3 soundtrack. I figured 'how hard can these guys really be?'. Then I heard 'Worlds Famous' on DJ Clue's Spring Break mixtape.

I've been doing penance ever since

My boy had Reasonable Doubt back in '96. He loved Jay but I just couldn't get into it. I'm usually behind the curve on shifts in music and Jay's style and East Coast specific beats were too much for a St. Louisan to swallow in high school.

I kind of went back and listened to Reasonable Doubt at some point in my mid to late twenties and really liked it. His energy on the mic was undeniable.

Because I was a backpacker, looking back, I didn't really get into Jay-Z until The Black Album. At that point, ?uest and The Roots gave him some cred that I didn't he deserved but on the strength of their record, I bought the album.

It was really dope to me. I think I respected Jay's lyricism but his production always seemed lackluster to me, at least the more pop songs, I listened to which he released to that point.

I still didn't like Change Clothes but by then I bought the album and dug Dirt off Ya Shoulder and 99 Problems.

I've bought songs off of every Jay album since. Kingdom Come was a bit of a step back but there were songs on there that I really liked and the same with The Blueprint III. 4:44 was dope too.

I also dug a lot of his features from Kanye and Freeway and Beanie Segal from the mid 2000's.

Charles Mingus was another great artist I slept on. My dad is really into jazz but he didn't play Mingus at all. I didn't learn about him until I was doing some digging into the influences for Kid A where Thom Yorke mentioned a song of Mingus' was an influence for The National Anthem.

Later in my early 30's I think, Ken Burns released his Jazz doc and Mingus had a collection of songs sold as a CD. I picked it up and was awed by the versatility and artistry of the songs. One of the virtuosos of the 20th Century.

I kinda slept on Biggie as well.

I was big into Death Row, which looking back was kinda odd since I was a teetotaler as a kid when Death Row was hittin. Anyway, while I respected Big's talents, I never really listened to him like I did the Death Row artists.

But later on in my 20's I got into Ready to Die. It would be some time until I got into Life After Death. (Truth be told, being a backpacker prevented me from listening to some dope music when it dropped.)

That album is too long, but there are some dope cuts there.

and I'm a big Sonic Youth fan (one of their main influences). How much I like the music...almost makes me feel stupid (if that makes any sense)
