so happy to see this come up as my first song on my Spotify release radar
Finally listened to Skegee.
Shlohmo and Knxwledge need to do something together
It's got Terrorist on there, which is worth it for that track alone. And several of those little short Donut like lead ins they used for the videos
this muggs x rome streets some grimy ass shit
had a little sneak peek at planet asia’s new shit too
Listed to Peggy's EP2! today. Did not love.
I have really enjoyed Savage Mode II, especially the interludes with Morgan Freeman
I really like fix urself, but yeah ep2 as a whole was not as strong as ep1
Watch Hip Hop Evolution on Netflix now if you haven't seen it
It’s really a great series. Learned a lot and saw a lot of stuff I had forgotten. Selfishly, all of the Southern episodes were great since that’s where most of my allegiance lies.
That one on Eminem where he’s battling in the back of that clothing store against, maybe a future D12 guy?, and says something like “I’m white but you look like you just saw a ghost” and next thing he remembers is they’re waking him up with smelling salts was hilarious.
Can't wait. I've only finished first 2 seasons so far.
Agree on the southern stuff; I just read a whole book on the subject and I'm still learning more. Also books are nice but it's helpful to see these people walking and talking. And it's kinda rad that the OGs have some age on them now -- people are looking back with the kind of perspective you couldn't have when it was more fresh.
I’m definitely gonna need the name of that book
Third Coast: OutKast, Timbaland, and How Hip-Hop Became a Southern Thing
Typically, more than half the top rap songs in the country are the work of Southern artists. In a world still stuck in the East/West coast paradigm of the ’90s, Southern hip hop has dominated the genre-and defined the culture-for years. And the South’s leading lights, most notably OutKast, Timbaland, and more recently, crunk superstars like the Ying Yang Twins and Lil Jon, have expanded the parameters of hip hop. Third Coast is the first book to deal with Southern hip hop as a matter of cultural history, and the first to explain the character and significance of down South rapping to fans as well as outsiders. It tells the story of recent hip hop, marking how far the music has come sonically and culturally since its well-documented New York-centered early years.
Death & The Magician is solid. Really good.
Stumbled upon this Chappelle episode tonight
the first anderson.paak/bruno mars single dropped
have been waiting for this. did not disappoint
For me there are 3 guys in rap/hip hop that dont miss and .Paak is one of them
Best on 1.5: Cosmic (Joey & Al)...don’t get the Internet’s hate on this one. It is a little difficult upon first listen and maybe that’s the reason for the hate, but I think it’s genius.
Honorable mention: DIET (Benny)...not reproduced like the rest of the tracks, but Benny kills it.
Worst: Whatever the fuck Charlie Heat was trying to do to Take it Back. Garbage.
Good try, good effort: Jay Versace’s Lay Up. Great reproduction mostly, but doesn’t fit in the spots when Denzel gets aggressive.
Random thought but been listening to them a lot, Labcabincalifornia and Beats, Rhymes and Life are still pretty underrated. Not sure everyone was ready for the pivot to Dilla production at the time, but both those groups could obviously see his genius before it became manifest.
two of my favorites of all time ! I think this is still my favorite Pharcyde and ATCQ taped and have been since I was in high school
I hate to be a downer itt but that Alchemist twist on that Kenny beat was absolute fucking garbage
Doesn’t change how I feel about Al or whatever else just keep him away from Denzel. Never cared for the idea to begin with
pearl you should ask in here for a take with more expertise
Not my thing but it’s definitely a thing. Solid production and the guy is pretty good in a 21 savage way.
yeah not my thing either........but the production is on point and very professionally done
I think bro hood b. goode Andy Reocho are a little more into this than us old guys
Not bad at all. It's not really my go to, stylistically.
However, seeing that my work office is next door to a D1 locker room, this type of song/music is right up their alley, and I think he's got a good chance to have some success on some level.
Feels like some of the Pooh Sheisty stuff I hear.
Unlocked 1.5 is an awful listen
agreed. Such a shame bc I love the original unlocked
I didn’t like the Glasper/Smino or Alchemist/Joey remixes at first, but both grew on me...the latter to the point I’d take it over any of the originals. Godmode’s remix has some good drum n bass beats in there, too. The rest...big meh.
Bout to spin this Benny but I’m not excited for these features
Got it and the Del Ray album (don't judge, it's a daughter thing) loaded for today. Del Ray at work and Benny for my me time afterwards.
Excited to give it a listen through today
I know what I’ll be playing in the home gym this weekend
I hope he lives forever
I am feeling this one.
Also apparently I've been sleeping on Joyner and Logic. Really liking a lot of their stuff.
can't get enough joyner
I hadn't listened to any of his or Logics stuff until their colabs with Em and now I can't get enough.
Oh man dis gud
liked the Armand Hammer/Alchemist project on first spin. not a shocker, let's be honest, Al never really misses
yup my 18 month old and I listening to this right as pick him up from daycare
yes sir it is
Entire album is amazing
