Although I think of myself as an old hardcore dude, I’ve actually been listening to rap even longer. It makes me feel like an ancient fossil to say it, but I got into rap before I even knew what hardcore was, way back in 1987 courtesy of Yo MTV Raps. I definitely don’t know much about current rap, but I do like it and I wish people cared more about the rap posts on SYWH. Here’s a couple of favorite older ones, let me know if you would be interested in more:

These are hands down some of my favorites posts ever on SYWH. Big ups to Mike for taking the time to review these, and for having such good taste in rap!
WHAT RAP SONGS SHOULD I LIKE
One of the first rap posts I did on here. In the comments of this post, someone finally helped me crystallize what I like: minimal, electro-influenced beats and hate funk/breakbeat-based beats. Sounds dumb, but I never realized it until the commenter said it so clearly.
I LOVE JERKIN
To borrow a phrase from JUDGE, jerkin may be gone but it’s not forgot. This is kind of old, but no fux given, I still love jerkin music and still love how mad it makes oldfag rap purists.
Feel liek this song didn’t get as much love as it should have :( I still have it on my summer jams playlist!
JERKIN & SLAM: SEPARATED AT BIRTH
One day I took a bunch of Adderall and though too much about dumb shit. Then I wrote it down, and this post happened. It turned out pretty well IMO.
