Rip Slyme – yapparip Review
I have to think that Rip Slyme are the biggest popular hip-hop group in Japan. Their music has changed from release to release, but have always kept their individual styles in mind.
yapparip is a five year collection from 1995-2000 of their early career. The songs definitely are different from the later releases, but the foundation is easily seen.
The group did get a bit more pop as they went on, and even did singles for product placement, but their style never changed to meet any of the endorsements, they made the product fit them.
yyaparip might sounds better to some people than the rest of their discography, but it’s nice to see how they band has evolved over the long career they have had.
