funny is you had both side of the coin groups like p.o.d., crazy town, limp bizkit, papa roach, etc. back in the day, and one think i noticed is that both hardcore metal and rap heads hated those guys. rage another story though, really the opposite. damn i miss them making music.
i think to be a successful producer you have to open to all types of music
unless your aiming for mainstream then anything goes HAHAHA
personally im a guitarist(not some noob) i love rock metal and everything in that genre
but i also have a deep love for hip hop even though i play a gibson les paul or a fender stratocaster
I also play the akai mpc
If it sounds good I like it, no matter how popular or unpopular a song is, if it's good then it's good. Genre doesnt always matter. Hell I like some stupid country songs too, when Im at a party or something. It's all relative
I love metal and rap equally. I listen to alot of different genres of underground music. Death & Grind & Rap are my favorites by far though. Its difficult to transition between the scenes haha. Theres too many elitists.I regularly attend live shows and the crowds are drastically different depending on the style. I produce mostly horrorcore/deathish hip hop though because I started playing playing guitar before anything else. For every person that adamantly despises a chosen genre theres easily 3 people that can appreciate it. There are bands who try to fuse them like Necro, GUT, and the forgotten archetype. Its very interesting seeing the different directions the genres are evolving. Id really love to fuse death and hardcore hip hop in a way that wasnt gimmicky or nu metal.
I'm in a electronic Metal Band and I love Hiphop. We work with rappers sometimes as well. I like hiphop like DMX, R.A. The Rugged Man, Jedi Mind TRicks, and Tech n9ne - Artist that have a meaning and aren't talking about how much money that have and fashion line names they wearing.
