3010261, Radiohead and Coldplay|
Posted by obsidianchrysalis, Mon Oct-08-18 05:47 PM
Both British bands who came up at the same time and had progressive instrumentation.
Radiohead was the art-rock band and Coldplay the pop success.
ATCQ and De La Soul
Both had great production and MC's with unique, distinctive personalities. Tribe was a bit more grounded while De La loved to innovate and shift their taste from album to album.
Dilla & Madlib
Both were underground producers who were somewhat of an acquired taste for me. But were very witty and clever with their sample choices. Also both were technical wizards and were innovative in their lo-fi approach.
Kendrick Lamar & Jay Electronica
Both were fast-tracked into the role of Savior of hip-hop. I look back at Jay and think Kendrick had the career that Jay ought to have had.
Kendrick Lamar & Lupe Fiasco
Both lyricists of great abilities. Also, really good song writers. Maybe if Lupe had better handlers (and a bit more robust personal filter) he might have had the acclaim as Kendrick. Not that I think he's salty about Kendrick's success.
Nas & Jay-Z
Both Kings of New York at some point. Nas is the novelist, Jay the Hollywood screenwriter. Nas' peak is brighter but Jay's floor is much higher than Nas' and an as a result more consistent.
I'm running out of steam. Here are a few more.
Michael Jackson & Prince
Janet Jackson & Madonna
