I know - I have my vinyl copy of Hypocrisy of the Greatest Luxury here to refer to.

If you like NWA moog, reading the abbreviation for what it is, is it because like so many others you would prefer it when people know where they stand against others? A simpler time, to quote Gil Scott Heron, 'When TV was in black and white and so was everything else'. Understandable if a bit quaint. And a lot racist!

Anyway, hip hop voices. Nate Dogg on Regulate (both the superlative single and the album) has got to be a major force. He made my (actual) Pioneer speakers bump as I smoked on the pound alright.

Partly that, but mostly because they don't smother their album covers in cartoon flowers like a schoolgirl's exercise book whilst making music that is the exact aural equivalent.

Regulate is ace.

I like hip hop as well but I'm not a fan of that R and B style, although I don't mind De La Soul. I prefer the older hip hop up until around the early 90s.

Dope, but more of a G-Funk hook guy than an MC, no?

Sheesh! Yes, if you must.

I did think this would prompt a query but dismissed the thought quickly: nobody could be so pedantic. Then I remembered that this is a music trivia thread, and detail is the tyrant King.
That said, there is a lot of crossover and indistinction between the rapping, singing, tuneful rapping and plain hollering. Thinking Flava Flav, Bone Thugs, ODB, even Eminem (Guess who's Back! Nya Nya Nya ): in fact, probably more exceptions than inclusions. So.

Method Man has a tremendously compelling voice, I agree. He's also a really nice bloke and recorded a video message for a friend of mine who died of cancer last year, which I thought was superb.

Agree also on Nate Dogg and suggest you all immediately listen to "The Hardest Man in Town" of his solo album. It's like rolled gold.

I also really like the high-pitched NYC sounding bloke out Cypress Hill (you know the one - Hin-sane in the braaaaaaiiiiinnnn) but more for his comic/manic delivery than his smooth tones.

Also, not classic rap but Huey Morgan good tell me bedtime stories I reckon. Albeit bedtime stories about how dis one time, Frankie the mook was playin a double-cross on some goombas from the Southside, you feel me?

I've always liked Slick Rick's delivery too - vocal magic in some of his tracks.

I love the Cyprus hill guys too dis for his comedy. Also LOVE General Levy and Shabba too for retro vocals nostalgia.

Can we have an honourable mention for Major Mackerel? He's not a rapper in the classic meaning of the word but is GUARNTEED to raise eyebrows when presented at a civic reception.
