Subject: Early to mid 2000's Hip hop / R&B

Written By: MarioDaDon on 09/28/13 at 3:25 pm

In my opinion , this was the last era where rap & rnb was tolerable  even though it wasn't as lyrically advanced as the mid 90s , everyone had their own distinctive flow , beats and style , after 07/08 everything began to get generic and now everyone sounds like a carbon copy of each other , but here is some songs I enjoyed from this era .


I have many more to share , post your favorite hip hop & RnB hits from (2000 - 2006)

Some of my favorite hip hop and r&b songs from the early 2000s:

Stutter / Joe featuring Mystikal
Crazy / K-Ci & JoJo
Miss You / Case
One Mic / Nas
Without Me / Eminem
Beautiful / Snoop Dogg featuring Pharrell Williams and Uncle Charlie Wilson
Bringin' on the Heartbreak / Mariah Carey
Dirt Off Your Shoulder / Jay-Z
All Falls Down / Kanye West
99 Problems / Jay-Z
Jesus Walks / Kanye West
My Place / Nelly featuring Jaheim
We Belong Together / Mariah Carey
Pimpin' All Over the World / Ludacris featuring Bobby Valentino
So Sick / Ne-Yo

Unfortunately, hip hop/r&b started to really suffer around the latter part of 2005, when snap music ruled the airwaves and catchy, shuffling beats were mostly exchanged for barebones repetition.

While I'll argue outside the US and in the late 00s indie/alternative hiphop scenes, you had good rap/hiphop. The early-mid 00s were great too.
