[The Five] Post Your Favorite Playlists

edited January 2009 in Directed Promotion
First, thank you to everyone that's shown an interest in The Five! The response has been awesome!

In Kevin's thread, I've already seen a couple of suggestions for tracks or artists that should be represented in a playlist. I'd like to ask anyone who's interested to create a playlist of tracks for a game of The Five.

Kevin, John and I will select our favorite one(s) for inclusion in the final game (with credit, of course!). More importantly, I'd love to get turned on to some cool hip hop that I haven't heard before or to be reminded of something awesome I haven't heard in years! The turntables are yours...

  • Andy, no Dragon Ash? I'm disappointed.

    Unfortunately, Chinese hip-hop is only starting to not suck, so I'd be hard-pressed to create an entire playlist of it.

    I love Dalëk! I listened to Abandoned Language and Gutter Tactics a lot while writing!
  • Thanks for posting guys! I realize that I need to update the rules slightly though. We can only consider playlists of East Coast Hip Hop for the final release. That said, feel free to keep posting other stuff too. Maybe we'll add a hacks and drifts section to the Web site!

    They went quite a while there without saying "Exterminate", "Superior", or "Doctor". Maybe the pepper-pots are growing as a species...

  • If we are no longer limiting ourselves to East Coast, then I have many many playlists.

    You can post playlists that aren't limited to the East Coast just for the sake of turning us on to new hip hop. But really, only playlists limited to the East Coast are useful to us for purposes of The Five.

    Hey Jonathan, I'm a fan of Dizzee Rascal and The Streets, but haven't listened to either for ages, so thanks for the reminder!
  • How about some Automatic Head Detonator?

    It's definitely worthwhile checking out the rest of the UK hip-hop scene. Dizzee originally got his start with Roll Deep, the crew put together by Wiley (arguably the originator of the grime/eskimo sound), which includes a bunch of talented MCs (Flowdan and Skepta are especially great, I think). Even outside of London there are some talented folks. Dev, I think, turned me onto the Virus Syndicate out of Manchester, who are not as consistently awesome but are definitely talented.

    Dragon Ash is a sort of emo punk band. Basically, exactly like Linkin Park. This just happens to be one of about two hip-hop songs they do. The guy in the middle of that song who brings the rhyme ("Born in Tokyo, Raised on Hip Hop") is Zeebra, doing a cameo. ACO is also in that video, which is really cool, because she was one of the women who brought Soul music back to Japan and cranked it up to 10 (although her recent stuff is pretty psychadelic). Dragon Ash just brought two rhymes and the instruments in that piece, unfortunately.
