Sticky Spice.. is that like a name derived from an evening watching Posh Spice with a box of tissues?

I watched Chapelle's Block Party last night. I had never heard of Dead Prez before, they were pretty good. And Kanye was terrible.

While there's a lot of instrumental tracks, General Elektriks' album is pretty laid back.

It's not exactly old school though. Then again very little that anyone has mentioned would be considered old school.

More like a roll of toilet paper.

Tough to define old school. Considering a lot of the stuff mentioned is over a decade old I think it qualifies.

Can't believe it took that long to be mentioned.

Pre-Fergie BEP have some merit.

I don't think so. I mean...I guess it may fit some kind of vague definition of "old school," but most of the stuff being mentioned here is from the Golden Era, not really considered old school. The cut-off is around '86-'87 when the sound changed from simple rhymes and rythms rapped over break beats to more complex rhyme schemes, multis, etc over sample-based beats. Basically, you can break rap's progression down based on the equipment that was available at the time, and how proficient people got with them: SP-12 gave way to the 1200, which then gave way to the Akai, etc.
