  • Negative search
    If you do not want to find certain expressions in your search result, you can cause this with placing a hyphen in front. Terms containing this phrase are excluded from the search result.

Since this year was rather weak in the hip hop department i propose a few welcome additions to this years lineup.

Kendrick Lamar

-Probably the most hyped dude in the game, pretty much universally loved by mainstream fans and underground fans alike. Has an album coming out in a few days. A fantastic book that would definately even top asap rocky from this year.

His newest single: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8-ejyHzz3XE

Danny Brown

More of an underground phenomena Danny Brown is definately a candidate of being the best rapper currently. Extreme dexterity, versiality and an absurd flow.

Aesop Rock

Stellar dude. Been doing his thing for a long time, very unique rapper and has just dropped a new LP.

Kanye West

Needs no further introduction, rebooking this guy should definately ensure an even better show than last time he played considering he just dropped one of his careers best albums.

Dr Dre

Has a new album coming out, could be interesting. Maybe not.

I don't think, that the hip hop department this year was weak, definitely not. There were acts like The Roots, Malk de Koijn, Wiz Khalifa, Mac Miller, A$AP Rocky, Blitz the Ambassador etc. - all really good acts!

Didn´t think the hip hop line-up was strong this year if you take The Roots Crew out of the picture. But in my book The Roots Crew took the Orange stage to a new place! I stood in line for 3 hours and ended up with a concert beyond my dreams! I can´t really disagree with the people calling them the best live hip hop act, what an act and joy they brought!

I would very much like Kendrick Lamar to drop by. I have been a fan ever since the "Section 80" EP was published and can´t wait for the "Good Kid Mad City" album.

Then i would really like to get NAS to Roskilde! A new album has just hit the stores and he is just a hip hop legend!

Bring El-P, Sole, Busdriver, MF DOOM or something of the likes. The hip hop department has been very weak the last couple of years, since the focus has been on the more popular and regular side instead of bringing some of the interesting stuff. Granted - The Roots was a great booking and definitely delivered.

Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Aesop Rock, El-P, MF Doom are all quite possible

And two of my favorite hip-hoppers ever:
RJD2 and DJ Shadow. Those two would simply be amazing! Hope to see them at Roskilde sometime before i die.

Ha! I have already witnessed the miracle that is RJD2 at Roskilde! But he is welcome back in my book.

I totally forgot about the roots. They were rather good, especially for people who dont like hip hop that much.

EL-P could be cool but i honestly prefer his production to his rapping, so id rather see Killer Mike.

Schoolboy Q would definately be nice. MF Doom as well even though i really hate what he has been doing with playback at some concerts...

Death Grips could certainly be interesting too and would definately fill up anything smaller than arena easely.

i think 2012 had some decent rap acts; spoek mothambo and sage francis both were great!
there are lots of great rap acts not doing the radio gangsta (c)rap out there:
the mighty underdogs, busdriver, living legends, blackalicious, p.o.s., murs...

not exactly in the hippety hoppety category, but i'd also welcome peanut butter wolf, kid koala and aphex twin.

Didn´t see him in RF, but I later saw Blitz the Ambassador in Helsinki. So good. If we´ll get couple of rap acts with such quality next year, I´m more than happy. (Of course the Roots were incredible also.)

Saw Busdriver in Copenhagen a few months ago, with around 30-40 other people.
It was at times more breakcore than hip hop, but it was AWESOME!
The guy deserves better, so bring him to RF!!

I saw kendrick lamar in pumpehuset back in june, good concert and no doubt he would do well at Roskilde but it is 'new millenium mainstream west coast' i dont think they should book him if he is mega expensive.

Busdriver is skilled but I don't understand much. Would still see him.

I would ask for Soul Khan, former freestyle rapping legend icon_smile.gif
his albums are available online for free too.
soul khan fahrenheit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V6vNFqGz7RU

Also can Roskilde book SUPERSCI please they reside right across the sound.
on the grind http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XcOvr8yG2BM snap out of it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t--6q9Xp2es

And lastly, GRAMATIK (mainly instrumental). The guy is from Slovenia and it is a bit of a mixture of hiphop/electrojazz with many other genres such as breakbeat/dubstep embedded in his style. Sort of similar to some of Pretty Lights' work, but more funky. These tunes are gold.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C56h08hMLnM and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bI8Gp6Imlho (this one is sampled off after laughter comes tears, just like the wutang song tearz)

Please Roskilde book some of these!

definitely agree about MF Doom and Aesop Rock
AND as the thread below informs, RZA recently suggested, that the WU-Tang should hook back up, and do a tour, that would be the bomb!

Also it would be cool with some danish acts like Bikstok and Eaggerstunn, i really hope that RF aknowledge this, since imo these acts are of the highest quality that DK have had in years.

Childish Gambino, EL-P, Killer Mike, Joey Bada$$, MF Doom, Death Grips and Stann Smith. If they booked any of these, I'd be a happy camper.

A shame that you didn't see him at RF, it was an amazing concert! But yeah, if we'll just get three acts like that, the hip hop section would be saved!

Fortunately for us, we now have Kendrick Lamar and Danny Brown. Now, if the rumors about Killer Mike attending the festival as well are true, we already have three names within the genre that I'd very much enjoy to see live.
Action Bronson and Joey Bada$$ are also talented and worth a visit, if nothing else is playing meanwhile (I could imagine).

Dark Time Sunshine would also be very cool to see live - they put out a new album, ANX, in 2012.

Also, CunninLynguists would be much appreciated, although they have not put out anything since 2011.
