Southern Series Volumes 2 & 3 (1990-1995)


Today I am posting 2 compilations at the same time. The reason being that they contrast sharply and I want to give you readers enough variety to keep everyone interested. As usual I have a fair number of compilations along these lines, so I will generally be bringing you the southern underground series one volume at a time. Hip hop scenes below the mason-dixon put forth enough unique sounds that ‘southern rap’ almost defies categorization. Volume 2 has more ‘gangsta rap’ and volume 3 has more ‘hip hop’ but both are varied. Personally I like both styles but I find it’s difficult to split hairs. Neither term really does justice to the music. To illustrate the difference between., for example, Black Rhino and Hip Hop Dickheads with such limited language is an exercise that doesn’t really do justice to the state of mind which came from the artists. In your opinion, what are the qualitative differences between these 2 sub-genres ? Is hip hop more ‘aware’ ? Is gangster rap only ego and bravado ? Is it solely based on production style ? Whose studio time is financed with drug money and whose is not ? How are these distinctions fueled by cultural and musical influences in a particular region ? I think we all know the answers aren’t simple, but the questions beg investigation. To me, alot of gangster rap displays a greater degree of depth and insight than it is given credit for. The hard-knocks meditation on violence found in ‘Don’t Kill Your Brother’ by Game Boyz is infinitely more meaningful than much of the odd-ball backpacker garbage passed off as ‘conscious hip hop’. Sometimes we can get stuck on image and miss the message. Let me hear what your thoughts are, I am curious to know. Feel free to leave some comments, right wrongs, officiate, fornicate, pontificate, stand on your head, and talk about the musical ideas presented here.

    This is a phenomenal post Schenectadyfan, both musically (well, I'm assuming, for the most part) and philosophically. As with any piece of literature, much of the depth lies in the eye (or brain) of the beholder, and as such, I think great discoveries can be made when interpreting "gangsta rap" if one tries to actively listen rather than passively hear. Though, due to the primary audience, the genre is often shunned. And the beats (strictly beats) are often simple, overly so, though the samples can spawn from diverse sources, adding to the interest factor. Thanks again, schenectady

    Thanks Kimani! Seems like you followed what I was saying pretty closely. Have you had a chance to listen to these 2 compilations ? What'd you think of the music ?

    –Schenectadyfan

  3. dochiphop says:

    Nice compilations. It is sometimes hard to separate rap from hiphop. The line is not well defined as you have noted… production style greatly affects how a passive, casual listener will classify it. However, most of us realize that you can have deep messages in both types of music as well as shallow, "for entertainment" purpose only" from either type as well. Kimani said it best… it depends alot on if you are actively listening or not.
    FYI… K-Rino and Street Military are from Houston. Trick Daddy is from Miami, i believe.

  4. Anonymous says:

    Oh that's right, Street Military IS from Texas. Dont know about K-Rino offhand but I'll take your word for it. Nice to know heads are listening to the music and thinking about the post. Thanks for reading!

    –Schenectadyfan

  5. Steady Bloggin' says:

    I think that "gangster rap" is either treated with kid gloves or denounced as the devil's music depending on whether or not the critic in question is still in college or recently graduated.

    Still in college: "gangsta rap is evil incarnate! More Aesoprock, yo!"

    Recently Graduated: "Aesop wha? I only listen to Souljah Boy. You're a racist if you dis his rhymes."

    The term "gangsta rap" is virtually meaningless at this point, so any attempt to make a sweeping comment about this non-category is bound to be riddled with fallacy, whether it is sharply critical or cheerleading. Nuanced reviews of artists that have been labeled "gangsta" are generally difficult to come by.

  6. dochiphop says:

    i'm 100% sure K-rino is from Houston. I used to live there. Anyway he founded the South Park Coaliton (SPC) (ganksta nip, point blank and tons of others). South Park is a section of Houston that he is from. Street Military is actually from Missouri City (MO city as they often say in their rhymes) which is a small city outside of Houston.
    Anyway, i always dig your compilations so thanx for your efforts and the dope music!!

  7. Vcyne says:

    Dope comp!

    Do we have to trust the indication concerning the year, from the ID3 tags or from the post?

    Thanks

  8. Anonymous says:

    Vincent, if I made a mistake the id3 tag is almost certainly right. Sometimes I slip up on the year/location info. Which ones are you curious about in particular ?

    –Schenectadyfan

  9. Vcyne says:

    Some of them, but it's not really important, most of the time there is only a one year difference.

    Anyway, Love your comps man!
