Dope Japanese Hip-Hop

kurohachi Wrote:I heard a Dotama track "Holy Land" yesterday, its definitely out there but interesting. I dug it. You know, that BD Balance album is amazing, BD (and his producers) is very good at making albums with crazy replay value. Every track is fantastic, but man "The Wanted" track is just wow. BD n Febb (jjj on there for a bit) rode that beat nice, and Hassy the Wanted constructed a banger of a beat, my goodness.
Oh you need to check out VIKN's album Capital, it's pretty much the same producers and I can play that album from front to finish for days.

I checked out Vikn Capital, pretty solid. "Capital Steelo" and "Starting 5" are sick. I havent heard Norikyo's yet, but will eventually. Oh yea, febb new album is being streamed here.

Buddha Brand's best-of album is one of best albums I've ever heard. Incredible.

One-Law "Misty" is very good, that track "Payday" is bonkers.

Jeez, NF Zesshou's Natural Freaks, Kid Fresino's Horseman's Scheme n SD Junksta Overdose Nippon are great albums. Mr Pug solo is solid.

That Mega G Juswanna is Dead Remix is dope, need to hear the original. That SD Junksta Overdose Nippon gets better n better. I need to hear their first album.

Still gotta hear the SD Junksta album, Bachlogic always comes through.

Yea Bachlogic brought it with his production. Some songs on there would have the beat change up seamlessly. Great album.

Great thread, many fantastic suggestions... can't believe I've ignored it for so long.

I'm completely hooked on Buddha Brand and Loop Junktion. If anyone has recommendations for the same kind of chilled, funky-jazzy-hip-hop (with vocals), I'd definitely be interested. Perfect chillout / background music after a day's work. Sounds a lot like The Roots, if perhaps a bit funkier. Love it.

I don't know if this has been posted or not, but this track by 鬼 is pretty awesome

Got that new Zimback album "What's Real?" off itunes, its incredible. Album of the year thus far.

@Linval- You might want to check the links below, these tracks are in that jazzy/funk realm beatwise (though they dont sound like Oni) all from recent albums released:
