Anyone know good Japanese rap with sad/dark backgrounds, big bass and anti-political or drug lyrics? You know something like Public Enemy, but with modern sounds? I mean... there should be some ppl pissed off at the government :D. I'm fuckin tired of the happy party shit made by Rip Slyme, Dragon Ash or Kick the Can Crew...
I want Japanese hiphop with attitude!
I am seconding this request but want to expand it for any kind of non-american rap, esp. French stuff.
Ever tried Buddha Brand? They're pretty good, there was a time when [UBG] released 4 volumes of japanese underground hip-hop. It was pretty good. I never knew what happened to the group though, they had some good selections...

Zeebra is the Japanese DMX.
Most of the other popular, more "hardcore" artists you can probably find on collaborations he did... I can't remember them them since I never listen to the stuff. (Though I think "Dabo" is one of them.)
tha blue herb is ok, i think...
jrap for u
Dj hazu feat illbosstino - Norainu (feat. ILL-BOSSTIN)
That one was actually pretty good, though I have no idea wtf they're saying :D. Where should I search for jrap albums? I usually use torrents..
Les Sages Poetes De La Rue is a good French rap band.
I've always wanted to hear some Neder-Rap (that's Dutch rap). Any suggestions?
Found some j-rap here:
Haha, I'm glad there's an underground side to j-rap. I especially liked some King Giddra and Nitro Microphone Underground tracks. I can't say no to good political rap, hehe (I don't know much Japanese, but I checked the translations in case you're wondering).
zeebra = DMX?
Are you crazy?

King Ghidra raps about political issues in Japan
lead rapper: Zeebra
YKZ is a hip hop group with some solid attitude.
HAHAHA... Hard japanese rap? Just live with the party rap man, a lot of "hard japanese" rap is embarrassing.
hard gay should cover a rap song
Dudes, having lived in Japan for fifteen years I can tell you that JapRap is pretty f***in LAME. And I am not talking about a CODEC.
Middle class products of Japanese (education?)trying to act 'Black' (are they from the HOOD, man!?) are one of the most pathetic things to happen to 'music' since Motaru Genji (a previous Japanese fad, gay looking dancer boys on roller skates).
I'm from holland, and most of dutch rap sucks
anyway, back to Jrap, there's not much too it besides the already mentioned "party" rap
lol i'm a n00b to wakachan but i couldn't help to notice this lovely music board. Dark hiphop, hmm?
The darkest I could possibly think of off the top of my head is probably "Phobia of Thug" -- I'm not sure exactly what they rap about but PoT kinda sounds like aggro -- rap that likes to scare the shit out of you. Humorously enough, PoT's first album is called "Hydrophobia".
....a minute later, I realize you're asking how they SOUND. meh.
There's one album I completely forgot XD
I'm sorry. I just came here and realized that Japs are starting to rap. What the hell is this shit? Why don't they stick to nonthreatening anime songs and bubblegum pop idols. Rap is lame. Turbo lame. It is loud, thumping, and incoherent. It follows me everywhere. I swear...I swear...I swear to Christ on his throne that everytime I hear some loud thumping car blasting incoherent "phat rhymez" next to me, usually being manned by a suburban black wannabe or an ethnic member of the local "underprivileged" I just want to take a hand grenade and chuck it right into their open car door window.
Japanese rap has been around for a while...about ten years or so. It started in the main stream with "party rap" -- with East End joined by popsinger Yuri back in early '95. The song "da.yo.ne" is incredibly pop, and that's really what sparked a Japanese hiphop movement in Japan. Most of "rap" nowadays that's mainstream though is the poppy hiphop (hip-pop lol) that isn't associated with loud bumping and incoherency, by groups like M-flo, Soul'd OUT and nobodyknows+. No "niggaz", no "tec-9s", no "down bitches", it's about hanging out, partying and meeting women. It's also mainly the sappy love music-type as well. If anything it's...how's it said...more "cutesy" than the ugly rap you're thinking of, which I'd gladly join you there at lobbing hand grenades. But yeah, Japanese now do rap, but most of them rap pop-things. There's rap steadily getting more ghetto but most of these don't get the advertising it needs to do well in the music market -- yes, that's a big issue, too. A lot of Japanese hiphop, some Japanese say, is slowly getting more and more "crapped-up" by trashy lyrics about bad things rather than the old rap about good times. :\
Rap will truly be the decline of modern civilization
Says you just because you don't like it.
Personally, I dislike most rap (and Country, and Metal) but I wouldn't make a broad statement like that.
Industro techno goth invasion music will truly be the decline of modern civilization.
...I'm sorry but the truth has been spoken.
Nothing good ever came from rap.
Nothing good came from most music either
that's for sissies. we need more speedcore :P
....the world really needs more Viking warsongs and some Rock Against Communism
