Boston

For the next couple days I will be in Boston so for that occasion I will dedicate this entry to Boston Hip-Hop. Please excuse the few beers I had with dinner.

Mr. Lif- One of the better rappers from the Boston area, he is known primarily for his emotionally driven political lyrics. He his also one of the members of Boston Hip-Hop group The Perceptionists



Edo G- My favorite rapper from Boston. He has had his songs featured on the cartoon show "The Boondocks". He has also had collaboration albums with star producer Pete Rock, and is seen frequently rapping with Masta Ace.


Guru- The most well known Boston MC by far. Guru, with DJ Premier, formed the Hip-Hop duo Gang Starr in 1987 but are most well known for their influential releases from 1989-2003. Unfortunately the duo broke up in 2004 and were not able to put their differences aside before Guru's death early last year.




RIP Guru 1961-2010
