Willie Weeks on bass, too. That was one grooving f-ing combination.

What, no link? A thread that promises an "absolutely SLAMMING!" Steve Jordan live with old Slowhand and no damned link? Is this a sick joke?

Man, you guys are cruel!!

Man drummers' got no love for hip-hop guys, lol.

I think Kanye sticks out from a lot of that crowd in that all his songs don't sound alike. He experiments and changes things up, which is one of my favorite aspects of musicianship.

He may not be great live, it sounds like he wasn't, but I do like what I've heard of his studio work.

I love hip hop bro......it raised me.....hop hop and I are about the same age ...we came up together ......I still keep my ear to the underground and listen for all the good rumblings on the rise.........it is in my blood stream as was the first type of music that I discovered on my own with no outside influence and for that it stays close to my heart for the past 30 years ....

but Kanye was horrible last night

A decent amount of hip-hop is very insightful and masterfully done. A lot of people don't realize that the pioneers of hip-hop and most of its earlier stars were classically trained musicians and very smart people.

Now it seems like anyone who can rhyme is an aspiring rap artist. Lyrically and rhythmical most hip-hop now'a'days very elementary and plain ol'fashioned ignorant blather.

I missed it, will have to check out the video later.

Hip hop is underappreciated here. Anyone who hasn't seen Something From Nothing: The Art Of Rap needs to check it out. It might give you an appreciation for the incredible art form it is.

smart people? absolutely .....classically trained? not so much

this music came from the streets of the South Bronx and much like bebop 30 years prior was the soundtrack to the poverty, and struggle of the NY streets

I wouldn't call Grandmaster Flash, Kool Herc, Bambaataa, Lovebug Starski, Melle Mel , Spoonie Gee or Kurtis Blow classically trained anything...... but pioneers? ...yes.....

Peep the username, bro. Sorry to respond a few days later, but I just saw some of those replies.

I listened to nothing but hip-hop from the ages of about 8 or 9 till 17. Everything from Tribe to Public Enemy to Common to Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco Atmosphere, Jay-Z. Actually, probably a lot of newer artists than old school guys, but I had my fair share of classics.

Not only was Questlove the reason I started playing drums, but he made me start going back to the hip hop that came before The Roots that inspired them, (Tribe, De La, PE, etc.) and then to go further back and start listening to all the James Brown, Curtis Mayfield, Stevie Wonder, and Tower of Power that they sampled.

I like to think I'm pretty well schooled in hip-hop, but that Kanye West performance was just atrocious! I could list a handful of artists that would fit the bill for an event like that much better than he could

Artists from New York would be a good idea (Jay-Z and Alicia Keys singing "Empire State of Mind" would have been pretty powerful), The Roots would have rocked an incredible set, being a live band and becoming as popular as they have, especially in New York since joining with Fallon. Nas could have done New York State of Mind, I Know I Can, The World is Yours, If I Ruled the World, and Black President and would have had a standing ovation.

Kanye West's set, as I heard from many people who were there, was the perfect time to use the restroom and get more beer.

I already went into great detail to my overzealous Kanye-fan-friends about why his was so inappropriate and in poor taste. Whoever decided he should be on the ballot should be (no exaggeration) fired.

I suppose "most" was a bit of an exaggeration, but I know of a few who were born to classically trained parents, and/or did make it through a music program. I'll be back with more specifics

Talib Kweli, Rakim, Chuck D, and countless others cite musician parents and some kind of formal training on drums or piano, or at least growing up listening to a lot of music as having a huge impact on them.

Not sure how many were "classically" trained, but definitely took lessons and studied.

Not sure how much Bach I hear in Wu Tang Clan. ;)

Interestingly, a recent Rolling Stone (December 20 issue) lists the 50 greatest hip hop songs, and it s very noticeable how many of these top 50 songs were from the early days, all the way back to 1979 for "Rappers Delight' for example.

Yeah, this was one of few respectable issues with that list. I remember a few being quite bad. I think Questlove did the list this time, which may be why..
