    Hello :) My friend's birthday is coming up in about one week who absolutely loves hip-hop and rock music.
    For her birthday, I was planning to buy and burn CD's for her. There, I wanted to ask any of you if you have any recommendations of these genres. If you have, please tell me:cry (In 'song name- artist' form.) Thank you very much everyone!:amuse

    Alright:

    K'naan - The Dusty Foot Philosopher African traditional instruments, + hiphop + hard rock = one of the most brilliant albums released in the past decade. It is catchy, rocking, flowing, smooth, soulful and unique. It is funny and heart-breaking, despairing and hopeful. I can NOT stress this more. :)

    Blackalicious - The Craft hip-hop from a brilliant duo, including arguably the finest linguistic emcee alive. It has psychedelia, rocking heaviness, jazzy smoothness and gritty street beats. It has brilliant word-play and tongue in cheek humour. Anything by Blackalicious is awesome. period.

    Will add more later.

    For rock I recommend classic Metallica and for hip hop I should say runDMC.

    hmmm Lucidream - Choose The Madness. They have a blend of hip-hop and indie-rock with acoustic guitars. More hip/hop than anything, but still very, very good. Gotta give a shoutout to Catatonik for he's the one who got me into them over a year ago. Amazing stuff :)

    and Schenkel/X, I doubt she'll like old Metallica. Not many people who are into hip-hop and general rock enjoy Thrash :( at least noone around where I live does. If they like rock, they only listen to those shitty mainstream bands i.e. Shinedown, 3 Days Grace, Staind, Puddle of Mudd, Nickelback, etc. I can never get them into anything remotely non-generic-radio-rock

  12. Not meaning to sound inappropriate or you know, sexist or anything, but I have a feeling your friend might not like the hip-hop albums already mentioned. They're not really the commercial sound that most girls listen to. Erm, I could be wrong though.

    Also, if you're into the classic heavy stuff, I highly recommend Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, and Judas Priest

    Partly because they are not exposed to it.

    The albums I listed both have commercial potential as well.

    Save for a few songs that rock list is absolute shite. As for your hip-hop, GTFO. You just listed some people who just put shame on music as a whole. =/

    First off, they're not for a party. They're ment as a present. And the music you named is just pure and utter shite. Commercial crap that has absolutely no soul and feeling. And you want a list?

    MF Doom - Special Herbs Boxset
    Madvillain - Madvillainy
    Danger Doom - The Mouse and the Mask
    WarsawpacK - Stocks And Bombs & Gross Domestic Product
    Public Enemy - It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back
    Matisyahu - Youth

    Rock (Wide assumption, as many cross numerous genres):
    The Villains - Annabelle & Sad Song Killer
    Rage Against the Machine - Evil Empire, Battle of L.A. & Self-titled
    Devin Townsend - Accelerated Evolution
    Diablo Swing Orchestra - The Butcher's Ballroom
    Flogging Molly - Drunken Lullabies
    Funkadelic - Maggot Brain
    Ground Zero - Plays Standards
    Jethro Tull - Heavy Horses, Aqualung & Thick As a Brick
    Jimi Hendrix - Live at Woodstock, Blues, Band of Gypsys, Electric Ladyland & Hear My Music
    The Mars Volta - De-loused in the Comatorium, Frances the Mute, A Missing Chromosome & Amputechture
    Modest Mouse - Baron Von Bullshit Rides Again
    Radiohead - OK Computer & Kid A
    Red Hot Chili Peppers - Any album after self-titled and before Californication
    Sun Kil Moon - Ghosts of the Great Highway
    Mark Kozelek - Little Drummer Boy

    I suggest Mihimaru GT. Even though they're Japanese, they're really good and their songs are catchy. Also, I like Home Made Kazoku and nobodyknows+ as well.

    [Truth], especially with the hip hop part.

    The hip-hop was absolute shite, the rock was shite save for two or three artists.
     
  25. Well I'm not denying they're good, but I doubt the commercial potential of those albums.

    Another thing I'm surprised with is how much people liked "The Craft". It was too alternative for my taste to be honest, and the two albums before it were imo much better.

    Good luck in trying to aquire them all. And pity that your opinion will be in vain for the most, but if you can learn to appreciate it all then kudo's to you. I applaud you for at least stating to be willing to make an effort into the word of true music.

    A good place to scour for new unexplored music grounds.

    I'll have a listen to them myself, although not an avid fan of hip-hop and rock.
