anticon is a label/collective of electic musicians and beatmakers that produce music in various styles, all with rooted influence from the hip-hop culture. They have made a name for themselves over the past few years through pushing limits, intoducing new ideas to musicians and producers alike, while at the same time creating their own sound. They have perservered through massive criticism for either being white boys or not keeping a traditional hip-hop format. (my only argument is that if this didnt happen, like in soo many past generations, do you think hip-hop music would be progressive or stagnent? do you prefer the commercial styles? are you biased and cling to one crew? all the criticism happening now is just the same as old rock and roll artists getting slammed for what their talent was. More so, did anticon even claim hip-hop as their particular style of music? I would suggest researching more and finding out more about who they are, instead of being a lethargic uncontestable rap nazi. even if you dont like them, they have been pretty sincere about what they do, and can prove it.)
Your best bet would to be to check out and see some of their reviews. that should provide some insight.

Avant-garde, progressive and above all: DIY. Not for everyone but definitely the bravest advancements made in hip hop over the last five years. Borderline abstract electronica sometimes and turntable experimentalism on the other.
South. Mo'Wax, I guess.

real hip hop- bravo to this group, they push the envelope with extraordinary beats, controversial lyrics, and overall music that is deep and actually meaningfull.
If you aint feelin it, its because you listen to that booty shakin, bling bling bullshit, gangsta rap.... and basically you'd rather hear songs about how rich some studio gangster is, how many hoes he got, how much beef he got with everyone, how sik his ride is, and basically YOUR soooo envious of these rappers you'd probably suck their dick just to hang out wittem for 10 seconds!

Anticon music isnt just for the white, candy flippn hippies with the back packs, just like gangsta rap isnt only for blacks or hispanics, because every mexican I know owns a tupac album and not many of them are gangstas-

Anticon is different but what the fuck you guys complaining about, evolve and adapt, appreciate new styles. I hate radio play but I'm not one to hate on the club scene and that crowd just because I am not a fan of the music. Stop with the hatin', if there werent groups like Anticon then you and I would suffer from "lack of variety" and we would all listen to the same ole' shit-
Dee: What the fuck you listenin to?
Jayfilet: Some Jay Z-
Dee: Thats fuckin gay, put this Anticon on!

CRAP-hop for buddha smoking backpacking white kids, college geeks, punks listening to "hip hop", dumb ass kids thinking they gettin into "real" hip hop, for the fake underground heads (blackmoon, smif n wessun, jeru, OC, showbiz & AG, main source, etc was the REAL underground, dummies...), suckas who think they be advancing hip hop with their nerd shit, just played out backpacking suckkas who think they got hip hop figured out. Just cuz them producing homies use a SP1200 and gritty samples don't make them real hip hop.
You can usually spot an Anticon "head" by spotting some skinny white art student lookin fag with black plastic glasses, some stupid beanie with a brim, a tight shirt, and some wack tighter jeans sagging, a gortex/REI/northface jacket, and some trendy hipster low top Nikes, tlaking about how Sole and Sage Francis are the best emcees.
