Look all, I know we're here for the same thing; making it big in hip hop or living the life like we wanna live it. Bu sometimes, ya gotta expand. One of the things I was told by those that are making it is if you wanna get good in Hip Hop and be a good rapper and a good singer you gotta know other music styles. its like a writer reading, and an artist looking at other art. You gotta know other shit to get good at the shit you wanna do.

So what other music everyone listenin to? Me, I just found this guy on youtube and Im diggin his pseudo R&B stuff.

I've been gettin into Electronic Swing music. Just somethin bout it that I like because it sounds like so much fun. Like music you'd hear in some old music or somethin.


Here's a collection. Ill let it speak for itself actually.

Nuttin wrong with Electric swing. Gotta have varied interests its the only way an artist grows man.

Checkit. Classical music.

I know ya'll thinkin "ugg", but I'm tellin ya theres a reason classical music is still popular today. Don't discount it cuz its a buncha ancient white guys playing on a piano. But there's a reason a lotta epic movie music gets sampled off of this old stuff, and why its still considered impressive now. Yea, I like simple beats and drops and shit from my hip hop, and I like rap, but its all an evolution off of this.

But im biased cause i got someone in my apartment who plays on a friggen harp or something and they do a good job.

I really like to listen to anything Spanish related. Pitbulls old stuff, which I guess is Spanish Hip-Hop kind of, is my go to.

An example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iy-vUCIm04M

He really has changed his style over the years.

I quite like classical music myself, for when I want to chill out or I have some work to do and I want something peaceful in the background. Big change up from hip hop though obviously.

Aint no one mentioned the King of Pop, Micheal Jackson?

For shame, for shame. Grew up with the King in my house. Dad loved his music, an grew up with the Thriller Album, the Bad album an stuff.



Cant be a music fan if you cant acknowledge Micheal Jackson.

You know what, I really dig some of this electric swing myself! I think once it hits a merger with hip-hop, it is going to blow up.

Here is one of my favorite tracks in this genre:

I like a bit of everything myself. I go in waves. I always have hip hop in my back pocket but I have been known to enjoy some alternative rock and club music.
