    So I like to listen to playlists, rather than just random shit, and I've already exhausted the ones I've got. I'm seeking some hip-hop heads who know some good shit.

    So post up some tracks and if I don't have em already (good chance I do) I'll download a nice quality version.

    Tryin to make this one a bunch of late 90's/early 2000 New York shit..that real grimy sound. You either know or you don't, post if you do. Once it get's big enough, maybe we all share it, eh?

    Let's make this shit raw..I'll throw some shit up in a min.

    Preciate it tho. Wu Gambinos is fucking hard.
  6. gotta have Mobb Deep on there

    the entire Infamous album has that grimey NY sound u looking for

    [ame=]YouTube - Mobb Deep - Shook Ones Pt. 2 - The Infamous[/ame]
  7. This track by NYC's Word a' Mouth is gritty, grimey, sick, nasty...and in my opinion one of the best least known tracks out there!
    [ame=]YouTube - Famous Last Words - Word A' Mouth[/ame]
  8. Oh, no doubt some Mobb on there.

    floatn, that track is pretty good. Kinda dark sound, reminds me of Gravediggaz..
  9. good thread. Love the Wu shit and the Eric B & Rakim gonna be keepin up on this one.
  10. [ame=]YouTube - "Intergalactic"[/ame]

    Beastie Boys can get it in. everyone was givin a different type of east coast HC But ill lay it down with BB

    Preciate all the contributions. All good songs posted, but try and understand the desired feel I'm going for. I NEED that quintessential New York sound..I don't know how else to describe it other than gritty.

    For example:

    Jay-Z's Reasonable Doubt is no doubt one of my all time favorite albums. 'Feelin it', however, (while a great track) doesn't really fit my theme here. I'm looking as much for the production value as well as the lyrical content. (Same can be said for Intergalactic. Good song, but not quite what I'm looking for.)

    Forreal tho, preciate all the suggestions guys, keep 'em comin!

    Ima post up a list of what I've got so far in a sec..

    That's more like it!

    Here's what I've got:

    Thoughts so far? More suggestions welcome, of course. I need more tracks like the DMX one.
  14. Dose it have to be from NYC, or can it just have that gritty vibe?
    (you speaking my language now, that grimmy shit is my shit)
