Kinda crazy he’s coming up on 30.
I played on team Georgia’s football team with him 3 years in a row. Dude was a baller. He was arguably the best return man in the state his senior year
run Ricky run
that new lil baby
how do we feel about drakeo the ruler? thank you for using gtl is so something else.
loving it! Listened to it twice, good shit
The song is fire with a great message that speaks to everyone. Might be my favorite track so far this year.
shut up saul
The company you keep smh
I’ve never heard 1999 so that’s what I’ll do tonight.
the producer lineup on that tape is absurd
well, repurposed beats anyway
Chill Hop Sunday AM on XM 44 or extra channel on the app is so goooood.
thats the background music of choice in our house when my 9 month old is napping, great station
Great Sunday morning vibe
20 (officially) yrs old yesterday.
HAPPY FUCKING BIRTHDAY
I’ve been playing this quite a lot over the past month and saw it was its 20th ave yesterday. Thought it was quite the coincidence. Top 10 hip hop album of all time imo
it really is exceptional, just an unreal groove over the whole album. You can hear the future influence on producers like Kanye, Timbaland etc. there.
was thinking about my favorite 90's albums after circling back to some underrated ones and came to the realization it was almost all Native Tongues or what you'd call alternative. Might be just me, but a lot of the harder hitting stuff that we just chalk up as classic or influential isn't nearly as listenable or aged as well. There's obvious highlights on those albums, but they're very hit or miss to me. Lot of dead spots.
Houseshoes is ripping through everything vol ii, samples, remixes, etc rn.
he's been going for fucking 5 hours now.
just all around bangery at this point
He's having a nice year
Fucking hell this is great
That Lil Baby song is horrible. I try to not absolutely shit on these new school guys but lil baby is an absolute trash can of epic proportions
I'm way behind on Run the Jewels but getting caught up
The message is all you should be paying attention to in the new song
Music is also supposed to be good beyond the message
Right. But that song wasn’t released to put on his all time hit list. He released it to support the cause.
I’m not saying he/anyone/everyone has to like it. But it seemed that he treated the song like it was some random single dropped on a Tuesday, when the point of it was to bring awareness.
And, for the record, I don’t like any of his music, I was just thrown by the way I conveyed his post
I’m not hating on the message (even tho there’s some all lives matter stuff in there that I’m sure drew Saul in). I’m hating on the song and his existence in general. He’s terrible and rn to me outside of Tekashi he’s the most depressing aspect of modern hip hop
Seems extreme but ok
Experienced this myself recently.
I know nothing about him but the sound of that song is what I hate about a lot of hip hop in 2020. Poorly biting Migos, which is trash to begin with even if I can bop to it.
fucking woof at comparing Baby to Tekashi
Hey I do my best to try and understand the landscape and try not to be too judgmental
.The message is fine and it’s admirable that he’s using his gigantic clout to get it out.
I’ll leave it there
I didn’t compare them musically. That was definitely not was tryna convey
I don’t see what’s wrong with Lil Baby and other similar rappers if you take them at face value. They make a lot of fun music.
Bro no offense but you (and sometimes others itt ) dont do a good job of it.
Outside of self admitted plants like tekashi and lil pump, everyone has a fanbase.
And that's fine. That's not how I read what patches first said though
This isn't meant to be an asshole comment, but I honestly think it's because Patches is older and enjoys a different style of hip hop than what Baby and a lot of the current music makes.
Just because artists are new or young doesn't make them bad. It's their music that makes them good or bad. And just because they have a fanbase doesn't make them good. I have a perspective from country music where there's a ton of new shit that's terrible. It's not that it's new that makes it terrible. It's that the new style that everyone is copying to get famous sucks a bag of dicks.
If someone who's 20 makes something like Brenda's Got a Baby they've got my attention.
Who/what defines good in music? Music is like food, each person has a different palate.
I definitely have my moments will not deny that but I’ve also went to war for this generation several times on this board. I find a ton of music made now that I absolutely adore. Some of it is some of my favorite music ever.
When you grow up loving hip hop like I did and you come from an era where it was at its peak as an art form while simultaneously watching it struggle mightily to gain respect for the beauty it brought to the table... it gets a little discouraging to see it get watered down by some of these guys. Baby is massive rn and I get that a lotta people dig that vibe but from a quality standpoint I just feel like it steers the ship in the wrong direction.
In hip hop the repetitive beat and flow with no enunciation and intermingled shitty autotune in the bars is awful. Some people will like it and I don't blame them for it. That's their taste. I think if the sound is the same and a dude can't ride a beat and they have to autotune his voice to make it palatable he probably sucks at what he does but that's just me.
I also like people who are original.
When your biggest hit is Drip Too Hard cmon that’s trash don’t care if you got 20000000000
Zillion teenies bumping your shit, artistically and lyrically there isn’t anything profound about it........but I’m an old man so I grew up with hip hop that had to be on point lyrically so I’m biased
Personally, I agree with all of this. Sometimes I just think TrustyPatches hip hop headness gets too far away from the rest of the thread, and the thread can suffer
My take on the thread this morning:
Older hip hop heads yell at speakers!
