word vert says:

Public Enemy – “It takes a nation of millions to hold us back.”

Zach Jones says:

Any 3 6 Mafia, Bone Thugs N Harmony, Bones, Xavier Wulf, J Grxxn, GhosteMane, Craig Xen, Amber London and Spaceghostpurrp (Blackland Radio 66.6) are good references to.

J.I. Vargas says:

I was just about to ask you haha

baphomick says:

POS is dope.

Lot of metalheads would probably like Method Man’s Tical. That shit blew my mind as a kid, I got into it before WuTang. Such a fucking amazing dark atmosphere.

mondola says:

Three 6 Mafia, Esham and Brotha Lynch Hung for the dark imagery.

xabies Zamudio says:

What about Jak Progresso?

CreativityInProgress says:

Army of the Pharaohs-In Death Reborn

Alexis Cerritos says:

Damn, no speedin bullet to heaven recommendation huh :/

Chase Porter says:

Hey Myke, love your videos. I’m not sure if anyone else has recommended this, but it would be cool to see a “Metal for Hip-Hop heads” type video. That would be really cool, and clearly you seem to be the most qualified lol.

viralinfecticide says:

The Cold Vein is the album that got me into hip hop from listening to mostly industrial and metal.

1adoremusic says:

Love the Mutiilation shirt m/

FortuneForceField says:

Alot of Metal fans tend to like someone like Tech N9ne

D Brent Pace says:

every dalek track sounds the same

lucariojet says:

I was waiting for the Bionic Jive mention

Goldberg says:

I recomend DJ Paul’s volume 16 original masters

Midora "Third Tiger" says:

Is it possible that you can (If you haven’t already) Do Metal music that could appeal hip hop listeners?

Caazii Deyz says:

This is funny cuz I was listening to Tech N9ne, Ill Bill and Gravediggaz and THEN I started getting into more metal.

josephnsparrowb says:

hey dude i absolutely love your channel as well as deadendhiphop and thought this was an absolutely fantastic video because when most people think of “hip hop for heshers” they think of some nu metal shit

also this may sound like some obnoxious self promotion but im actually working on a full length album where i rap over black metal samples, and today i released an EP where i straight up rap over raw black metal. not asking you to listen to it or anything just want you to know that the recs i got from watching this vid for the first time earlier this year inspired me to be more creative and ultimately made me able to formulate the idea, thank you mike c town you’re the dopest dude on earth for inadvertently sparking my musical inspiration

bad hair .day says:

This lacks Beastie Boys and Run DMC. Never met a Metalhead or Punk that hasn’t liked them at some point or still.

Shadow Zone Productions says:

Wu Tang Clan – 36 Chambers. That was the album that got me into rap. I was 17 and really into metal, punk, industrial, experimental stuff. All I knew about rap was what I heard on the radio and I absolutely hated it. Took a risk at the record store one day and bought 36 Chambers and that steered me down the hip hop path : ]

ss10baby says:

I dont feel like TMS is the best choice Death Grips wise, I think Exmilitary or NLDW would have fit better on this list. Although its probably the best album to get introduced into the band.

Dan McCoy says:

PE nation of millions

Danny Cheesums says:

lol the Alcest of hiphop? This I gotta hear

N1C0 Robbin' says:

Lupe Fiasco – The Cool
Run The Jewels 1 and 2
Earl Sweatshirt – Doris
A$AP Rocky – ALLA
Nas – Illmatic, It Was Written, I Am
Biggie – Ready to Die, Life After Death
JMT – Visions of Ghandi
ODB – Return to the 36 Chambers
Everything related to MF DOOM
Kendrick Lamar – TPAB
Ghostface Killah – Supreme Clientel
Everything by DMX

D Brent Pace says:

i feel like rage against the machine would have been good to mention, but they are definitely more on the metal side than hip hop

Simplafly says:

Big l could appeal to metal peope

Lucem Ferre says:

Sutter Kain & $uicideboy$ & old school Esham & King Gordy & Jak Progresso & MC Val & Ho99o9 & Buttress & Skyler Torquemada & SickTanicK & Heaven & Natas & Psycho Jesus

Jasper McGilvray says:

Both clipping albums maybe but I think they would be into Big L songs like devil son, All black have some pretty dark lines.

Fe Mon says:

A few metalheads I know gravitate towards Three Six Mafia and constantly list them as the group that got them into Hip Hop

loudbill says:

Can’t go wrong with First Come, First Served.

RIFKIN 666 says:

Necro – I need drugs album

Jacob Justice says:

Heard a lot of metal fans say they love Aesop

Aaron McBryer says:

$uicideboy$, Bones, Death Grips, Odd Future/Tyler the Creator. Hell, I’ll even say N.W.A, Public Enemy and/or Geto Boys.

Kirk McCosker says:

Solid list. Went pretty far beyond anything I’d recommend.


I though he would say “bring the noise”.

Jasper McGilvray says:

Could you do this but the other way round if you get what I mean.
