    I've been listening to a lot of 80s and very early 90s rap lately.
    But I don't really know a lot of names... post some artists or your favorites.

    Some of it is cheesy, like "Holiday", but that's kind of the sound I'm looking for.

    Maybe the greatest rapper of the 90s.

    Can't see what was posted because I'm on my phone but for that time period you're talking about the beginning of "gangster rap".

    NWA
    Ice Cude
    Easy E
    Ice Tea
    Too Short

    And then there's groups like Digital Underground.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7

    All the sevens rhyme. That's 80s rap.

    Break the measure into eighth notes and every rhyme lands on the seventh eighth note. There's a pleasant nostalgia to it, but rap evolved like a motherfucker after the 80s.
