3029007, Unintelligible rap songs and/or albums you fully appreciate.
Posted by Numba_33, Mon Dec-14-20 03:30 PM
Post up some songs/albums that you fully appreciate, but you have no clue what the rapper is talking about. One that immediately comes to mind is of course Ghostface's other wordly performance on Supreme Clientele.

What are some other examples?

Can't speak a word of French but love this album. Not exactly what you were looking for but wanted to give it a mention.
3029893, Yes!

I've always wanted to find a translation for this album. But yeah it's been one of my favorite albums since it came out.
3029009, Not sure I can limit it to just one album, but Kurupt comes to mind.

Dude is amazing at rhyming words and flowing while saying nothing at all.

And I love it.

But I love all of his and Pete’s music regardless. But yeah, sometimes he’s just saying stuff that sounds good when he says it, but doesn’t mean anything.

Sometimes when he start mixing the bay slang with his own language I get lost in it.

I understand the point of the rhymes overall tho.
3029160, A whole lot of Aesop Rock

Pierre Bournes production really turned me onto Carti and the new wave of soft mumble rap in general. Die Lit is indeed probably the cream of the crop in this field. Thoughts on the new album?

"I built a baseball diamond in the sticks in the middle of a cornfield with 8 balls flying. hit or miss."

but thats a simple one.
yo really be spitting some shit I don't get. But I'm comforted by the fact that he knows what the fk he talking about, and maybe one day I'll get an "oh isht!!!" moment.....<----thats one of my favorite parts of hip hop....listening to a song for the 32nd time and finally catching that line.

it's got a VIBE for sure, but it's too dense to be understandable.

Just listened to it again last night when hiking.
