    I noticed on a few music threads that not too many people mentioned hip-hop as their workout tunes...

    For me, hip-hop is by far the majority of what I listen to at the gym.

    Anyone else dig on hiphop? If so,what do you listen to?

    I listen to a lotta Atmosphere, Brother Ali, Jay-Z, Outkast, Do or Die, Twista, The Roots, etc. etc. etc.

    I usually workout to hip hop (with some other stuff mixed in). Right now, my playlist is mostly comprised of Jurassic 5, the Roots, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Common, old Black Eyed Peas, Onyx, Biggie, a Tribe Called Quest and a couple of others I can't think of. The 45-60 minute cardio sessions are great for catching up on stuff I haven't heard in a while.

    Hey LemonSong this old white guy hears you. I listen to a variety of music when I workout. It depends on what I feel like listening to. My hip hop is mostly old, TuPac, Puff Daddy, etc. I also like old R&B, Barry White, Earth, Wind and Fire, Bill Withers, etc. I also listen to all types of rock and also yesterday I worked out to country music.

    LemonSong I have a question for you. I have heard Jay-Z and he is coll, but who are Brother Ali and the Roots?

    Jay-Z is one of my favs because he has a great flow and some of the best beats out. I would highly recommend the album Blueprint Vo. 1 as a good place to start.

    The Roots (who actually played with Jay-Z as the band on his MTV Unplugged show and album) are an actual band comprised of a guitarist, bassist, keyboardist, aux. percussion, drummer, and rap vocalist. They are centered around their amazing drummer ?estlove I highly recommend the album Phrenology (and the new one has a Sly And The Family Stone cover: Everybody Is A Star...great track, great disc)

    Finally, Brother Ali is a 250lb white albino muslim with a lazy eye. His CD Shadows on the Sun is my favorite hiphop disc of all time. He is an amazing vocalist, and his topics are very intelligent and timely. He's with the Rhymesayers crew that has put out Atmosphere and Eyedea&Abilities. I couldn't recommend any CD higher. Just an amazing musical experience.

    Has anyone heard of 'Goldie Lookin Chain'?
    A group from Wales. Complete piss-take about drugs etc.
    My current favourites are 'Suicide' and 'Your mother's got a penis'

    A great laugh anytime I put them on.

    You guys that are into hip hop, do any of you listen to Jungle/Drum n' Bass? I love that for a workout mix once in a while.

    I don't, but only because I don't know much music other than artists I've once heard on the radio, then got their albums.

    Got any good suggestions? I'm always up for music with good beats.

    I'll take anything from '88 to around '95. 90% of hip hop now is garbage.

    A mix for me includes:

    EPMD
    Eric B and Rakim
    Kool G Rap
    Boogie Down Productions
    Biggie Smalls
    NWA
    A Tribe Called Quest
    Mobb Deep
    Nas
    Big Daddy Kane
    Gangstarr
    Wu Tang

    Notorious B.I.G. makes me want to lift harder and harder. He's pretty much all I listen to.

    Yeah, hip hop was sorta neglected in the previous music posts. My music tastes are all over the place.
    I love Jay-Z and Kanye. They are both so increadibly talented.
    Atmosphere is awesome. :nod:
    I'm diggin' Twista right now. He has a badass track w/ Prodigy on their new album.
    I like Snopp and the Roots and love N.E.R.D.!
    Beastie Boys (I love their old stuff), Run DMC, and other old skool stuff too.
