The Fugees, Drake vs J. Cole

The Fugees - Ready or Not


Remember this song? It was practically an anthem in the late 90's. Lauryn Hill has an amazing voice and can spit with the best. Mix in Wyclef and Pras' cultural lyrics and reggae feel, its a deadly combination all in its own. Definitely one of the best hip hop groups ever.


As always, youtube quality is shit, so be sure to click the link to listen or download in high, unaltered quality.





Be sure to put this song on your ipod by downloading it here.


Other songs by The Fugees to check out: Killin me Softly (definitely a classic), No women, No cry and Rumble in the Jungle.


Drake vs J. Cole
Two of the best newcomers to the hip hop game. Its still an ongoing debate as to who is the better rapper, but my vote has to go to J. Cole. In a rap freestyle battle between the two, Cole would destroy Drake hands down. Hes like a mix between Jay-Z and Nas, but with a style of his own. Plus, we all know Drake is pretty whack when it comes to freestyles. Once J. Cole drops a single that gets everyones attention (like Drakes Best I ever Had did), he'll start getting more of the recognition he deserves.
Not to discredit Drake though, hes definitely the forerunner for the newest generation of hip hop. You cant turn on the radio without hearing one of his songs or a feature hes on. Not only can he can go hard and rap with the best, he can switch and go smooth with that R&B shit. PLUS all the women love the guy, you gotta give it up to him.


Drake - 9AM in Dallas
This is easily the best song where Drake really goes in. If he were to make more records like this, he would definitely become one of the best rappers of all time. 


(I really hate how high pitched his voice is in the youtube version, check the link for a wayyy better cd quality version.)

J. Cole - The Last Stretch
Dam, my man J. Cole goes in on this one. His string of mixtapes are all really solid, it was hard to choose one record to go vs 9AM in Dallas

  4. I loved the late 80's and 90's music. BBD, LL, Young MC. I really miss that music. I know next to nothing about the state of Hip-Hop today.

  14. Re Drake vs J Cole, they both have great flow, but J Cole has the sicker beat, even if the intro was a bit long!

  23. The 90's had really great gems and the fugees was one of them. I really hated hip hop at that time and the mix of vibes and musical influences they had made me like it anyways.
