Thank you. It has its set def. Not so much as in "if its older than the time"

Essentially thats what it was but now you cant mix crap with old school rap well simply because its new school already at the point of 05.

Anyway

Pharcyde-passin me by
Getto boyz- feels good to be a gangster, my minds playin tricks on me
And much more.

Gang starr- mass appeal

how are you going to consider something from 2004 to be old-school?

Old school = the early days (so, throughout the 80s) until about the beginning of the 90s. then I consider 90s hip hop it's own entity. (so in my opinion nas/jay/wu tang isn't really old school, it's 90s...)

You're posting songs in the exact same category as the people you think everyone else knows. I'm not trying to put ya down, but don't put yourself above those people for posting two tracks you stumbled across on youtube.

I just thought it was funny - most people who think they listen to old school hip hop always bring those names up.
And take it easy, im not putting myself above anyone ;-)

No offense, but everyone is entitled to their opinion of what they like. so what if the only old school hip hop is Tupac, Biggie, and Ice Cube. Not everyone has the same taste of music as you, so don't make yourself look like a hardcore rap addict because you post stuff that's not very known and call everyone else posers...

I don't think you get it, we don't talk about your average old school, 90's, GOAT rappers because we've been through all that 100x over, it's boring discussing your favorite rapper/album/song over and over. That's why the thread is more filled with latest news, obscure shit, and tracks you'll probably never hear again in your life.
