Hey hip-hop nerds. What kind-of hip-hop is this?

Message Bookmarked

The only place I've heard this kind-of hip hop is blasting from these cars that drive down streets really slowly at night in Brooklyn just blasting this weird kind-of hip-hop. It's dark and slow-mid-tempo and kinda spooky, and talking about death and darkness and other night kinda shit. What is this?

burt_stanton, Sunday, 30 November 2008 05:29 (5 years ago) Permalink

one just went by. "grim reapah!" burbbhrbhbbhbburbbb. and sometimes like there's this kinda reggae dub sorta beat

Never heard it in my life except for these cars that sometimes come one after the other after the other just blasting music, like it's what they do at night

burt_stanton, Sunday, 30 November 2008 05:31 (5 years ago) Permalink

really bass heavy. one car's at the night and I can feel the bass in my apartment

Earlier today I was thinking about starting a thread dedicated to begging forgiveness for your worst three threads of all time. I thought we could all admit that we had created some truly shitty threads, offer them up, admit we were fools, and move on. However, I realized that I would get zinged for starting a thread that deserved to be included in a "my worst three threads" list. I decided against it.

In memory of a thread dedicated to bad threads that never was, I respect what's going on here, and I can picture the really long link to this thread being copied and pasted into my imaginary "beg for forgiveness" thread

RIP

I'm actually interested to know; I would like to download this music and listen to it on my way to school to get me in the mood to work.

and I like your OJ Simpson reverse style "If I Did It" narrative up there.

Oh, for clarification, I didn't mean YOUR worst three threads, I meant ALL OF OUR worst three threads. I have about 50 that could be seriously considered.

woah, this one car just drove by ... it sounded like one of those latino ballads or something, but it was slowed down so much and it had this drawn out echoey decay thing going on. there's some freaky shit going on outside my window

I was pulling yer leg, but I'd be genuinely interested in finding out what this is... especially if it sounds anything like Tomb by Gatekeeper - one of the the few dubstep records I wouldn't want to be parted from.

Rombald, Sunday, 30 November 2008 21:05 (5 years ago) Permalink

The music's like this weird dark reggaeton hip-hop kinda thing. Way slower and more drawn out than typical reggaeton

burt_stanton, Sunday, 30 November 2008 21:12 (5 years ago) Permalink

there are some pretty creepy slow reggaeton songs.

For which we should all be eternally fucking grateful. I liked a fair amount of stuff on WordSound back at the end of the '90s, but dubstep is bullshit.

unperson, Sunday, 30 November 2008 21:37 (5 years ago) Permalink

Sounds to me like Cumbia Rebajada which is like Cumbia slowed down by cough syrup or something like that. There's this Monterrey guy, who happens to be friends with Diplo, named Toy Selectah. He went to London and did an appearance with Sinden at Kiss FM about two months ago. He mixes this slowed cumbia sounds with reggaeton and makes some other beats that he calls Raverton. He's remixed loads of stuff, latin stuff mainly. Got get some of this remixes from his side project's website @ sonideronacional.com/blog/

If it ain't something like this i'd still like to know what the hell are we talking about,
