seeing as we're doing bestys, top live hip hop acts YOU'VE seen

Post  pipehitterz on Sun Jul 26, 2009 3:15 am

default U.D

beastie boys
jurassic 5
cunninlynguists
abdominal
masta ace
the roots
(strange one) fugees


all these acts have blown me away live, and if you aint seen em, please do.

just a side note, when me and johnny saw J5 in 2003 they had abdominal and format as support, they hadnt dropped the mature b boy album yet, and i honestly had never heard of em, abdominal was unbelievable, so much so J5 got him back on stage later in their slot, and he just killed em off the stage. now if youve seen J5 live you'll know they are almost perfect on stage, and i swear they were in awe of abdominal that night, lol i just remembered he came out on stage to do ill cunilary behaviour, and was rappin and throwing packets of crisps into the crowd lol, seen them together and solo about 5 or 6 times since

Seen some pretty amazing beatboxers, too (Rahzel, Radioactive, Wandan, Beardyman, Schlomo), but I'd say my favourite was probably MC Xandar.

Haven't been to a ton of hip hop shows, but these 4 groups are great:
Jurassic 5 - seen them a few times and they were always high energy and on point
The Roots - they tour so much, easy to see them close to 10 times. They are up and down. Even if some of their sets lull at times, they still manage to get me excited at many points during their shows. Best was probably in '02 when they were touring with J5 and Ben Kinney had just joined them. Caught me off guard when they started covering "Welcome to the Jungle" ha.
Atmosphere - 1st 2 times were fantastic. Just saw them a few weeks ago in Pittsburgh and they were okay. Not their best show, but still very good. Since they've added the live band along with Ant's DJing, it's really good when they are all on together.
Blackalicious - Lateef was on tour with them at the time and stayed on stage for their whole set. Saw some pretty amazing vocal back and forth between him and Gab.
Tribe Called Quest - I missed them on tour during their hey-day. But a few years back I caught them on their reunion tour and they KILLED IT! One of the best concerts I've ever been to. The crowd was super hype and all 3 of them were on fire. They even brough Jarobi on stage with them as a hype man. It was a ton of fun.

On my most wanted list to see live (hip hop wise):
1) Beastie Boys
2) UD
3) P.U.T.S.
4) Brother Ali
5) MF Doom (unless it's his imposter! ha)

I saw them on the day I first saw Ugly Duckling and PUTS. Absolutely amazing (although Mr Clinton was a bit shot away). One of their dancers really freaked me out, too.

Who are the biggest legends you ever saw live?

I'd have to say:

George Clinton
Lee 'Scratch' Perry
Kool Herc
Jimmy Page & Robert Plant
Grandmaster Flash
Gill Scott Heron
Sugar Hill Gang
Herbie Hancock
Afrika Bambaataa
Melle Mel
