I need as many Latino rappers as possible.
Whenever Flygod dropped I downloaded it off the strength of the cover, skimmed a couple songs and could not get into West's voice/thought he was a kid then left it alone. Then a few months later I had my iTunes on shuffle and Mr T came on and I was like "Damn I ****ed up in this one" and was hooked since.Curious: How did y’all find out about ANY of them? Like...what was the introduction.
I heard Mal play “Dirty Needles” as a sleep on Joe’s pod and went totally crazy. I was all the way in after that. I think “The Cow” was the next thing I heard. Every time I hear either one of those, it reminds me of being like “this is all i want to hear.”
I didn’t even peep this thread until a couple months ago though.
Was in a similar place when I got really into them. Was fresh out a messy breakup, didn't know what I was going to do with my life career wise and had a bunch of family issues going on.Same. My boys put me on a few years back, but it didn’t really hook me until Reject 2. I was going through some stuff, and it felt like I had a dark cloud following me around. This **** fed right into that. Great album. It’s a classic in my book. Daringer on all the production. Really one of the best ways to get into it.
That led to The Cow, and Dirty Needles...then I went through all of Benny’s ****. He struck me as the most balanced of the three from the moment I heard Dirty Needles. Eventually led me to 38 Spesh on Stabbed and Shot (which is damn near a classic in my eyes too). Then Son of G Rap (another great project). Eventually opened my ears to Flee Lord, Eto, RJ Payne, Che Noir, ElCamino etc. Don’t know how I missed some of them for so long.
After discovering these dudes, especially Benny, I rarely listen to anything else anymore. Lol
