    I'm a big fan of 90's-ish rap, you know, back when they used actual instruments to make the beats. Does anyone know of any songs that fit into this category or any artists who only produce guitar beats in the background of rap?

    Examples include:

    My first song - Jay Z

    Worst Comes to Worst - Dilated Peoples

    I got a Story to Tell - Notorious BIG

    I came in here to post this :o




    Check out the song What They Do from the Roots, it has some fucking AWESOME guitar work (and it's not sampled, they actually play it, along with all the other instruments)
