  1. Know a song that fits 2 or more of this criteria? I'm making a Playlist. Give me some songs and if they fit then I will add it to the list you see below. :)

    Sophisticated; Classy; Laid Back​

    The List:
    [ame=]‪Scarface - Mary Jane‬‏ - YouTube[/ame]
    [ame=]‪Tupac - Can U Get Away‬‏ - YouTube[/ame]
    [ame=]‪The Notorious B.I.G. - Big Poppa (1995)‬‏ - YouTube[/ame]
    [ame=]‪Hi-C - Sitting in the Park‬‏ - YouTube[/ame]
    [ame=]‪Rick Ross - Aston Martin Music ft. Drake, Chrisette Michele‬‏ - YouTube[/ame]

    Honorable Mentions:
  2. [ame=]‪Nujabes - Lady Brown (ft. Cise Starr)‬‏ - YouTube[/ame]

    [ame=]‪Real Hip Hop 6: Brown Skin Lady by Black Star‬‏ - YouTube[/ame]

    [ame=]‪Kero One - In All the Wrong Places‬‏ - YouTube[/ame]

    and other stuff by Black Star and Nujabes
  3. I don't like the first video because I don't think the lyricist works with Nujabes. Not only that but Nujabes isn't hiphop.
    Super chill chill though :)

    Second, is alright but not really my style.
    Third, not my style.

    Dude... you need to re-name this thread then.

    This is sophisticated, laid back hip hop (imo):

    [ame=]‪meyhem lauren - reality‬‏ - YouTube[/ame]

    This samples Nightmares on Wax, an electronic band. Nujabes, however, was a hip hop producer/ dj. And a damn fine one at that.

    Here he is with CL
    [ame=]‪Nujabes - Sky is Falling Featuring CL Smooth‬‏ - YouTube[/ame]

    A classic:
    [ame=]‪Pete Rock & C. L. Smooth "They Reminisce Over You"‬‏ - YouTube[/ame]


    Anyways, check out A tribe called quest, mobb deep, cyne, gang starr, mc lyte, shad, de la soul, atmosphere, mac lethal, blue scholars, common market, cunninlyguists and people under the stairs . sooo chill

    [ame=]‪The L.A. Song - People Under The Stairs‬‏ - YouTube[/ame]
  5. Aw fuck, The LA Song. Doesn't get much more chill than that :smoke:
  6. I'm going to listen to all of these tomorrow when I'm in a better mood. Thanks fadeddd and Cubic Cuban for contributing. +rep to both of ya. Later guys
  7. Thanks man, definitely check out that Gang Starr he posted too (and other songs by them) if you're not already into them. Some of the greatest shit out there in my opinion. And check out some different Black Star songs if you weren't feeling that one, it's kind of different.

    [ame=]‪Blackstar - Respiration‬‏ - YouTube[/ame]

    [ame=]‪Blackstar - Thieves In The Night‬‏ - YouTube[/ame]
