    Hi there Fyce,

    DJ Krush doesn't rap. He's just a DJ/Producer. He has worked with some US-based rappers though, like Mos Def.

    Here's a list of other rappers/hip-hop projects i know. Don't have any sites i can think of right now, but google usually gets the job done.

    You the rock
    Action
    Dragon Ash
    Mob Squad
    Rip Slyme
    Mach 25
    Palm Drive
    Firstklas
    Dabo
    Halcali (female fun hip-hop)
    M-Flo
    Yama Arashi

    Well, that's all i can think of right now. Probably enough to keep you busy for a while. :)

    Wassup Fyce :hey:

    I love hiphop and i have got some places that i can recommend to someone for hiphop lovers! My fav places are:

    Yellow (Nishiazabu)
    Nuts (Roppongi)
    Air (Daikanyama)
    Harlem(Shibuya) -> so famous!
    Venos (Shibuya)
    Velfarre (Roppongi) -> everyone knows!

    And my fav. place is Yellow. This is more clean and they surve real good hiphop music for dancers. For me better than Harlem!

    As for Japanese DJs, have you heard of "DJ Joey slick"? Well he is actually Japanese-American and his scratchings is just.. awesome! He also produces radio program called "Joint One Radio Show" on Inter FM (76.1) from 8-9pm during the week, you will never regret it!

    :)

    I thought Velfarre was strictly trance? Am I wrong?

    Yeah, Velfarre does trance too, but you can enjoy hiphop more!

    Hmmm.. DJ Honda baby? I haven't heard of him.. ah and i also am into DJ pone. I have been to DJ competition at Venos and he was one of judges there, at last he played his own scratchings.. my jaw just dropped open! :eek:

    Here's an up and comer (one of Miami's own no less, and a Chinese-American) who's been getting a lot of exposure lately after winning seven fresstyle battles in a row on BET's "106 and Park" show. His goes by Jin and since then he's signed with Ruff Ryders (DMX, Eve, etc.) and is set to release his debut this year. Having seen him freestyle on BET I can attest this guy is for real and despite the fact he eerily sounds a lot like Eminem, I think he'll be a rising star to keep your eye on. Read more about him at the following link:

    not 2 bad

    yeah i've never heart of jin but today i could already listen 2
    some songs of him....yeah he's dope
    not the same level as jigga or others but not bad.

    but i'd really say he's copying eminem's style.....
    or it's just because they got such a similar voice.

    jin da ruffryder it's strange man!

    Dragon Ash and Kick The Can Crew are good. Also a song called 'What you want' by Heartsdales is another good tune

    Sukotto yori.

    I think Japan Rap sounds funny, but I haven't heard a lot of it.
