    You're Frickin' kidding me... I just listened to a track that was getting hyped and had to check I didn't have another song playing at the same time. Props for his hustle, but GTFOHWTBS for real.

    I know it's just a blog, but the writing on that is atrocious.

    And those 2 ST tracks are straight unlistenable.

    Not even trying to hate, it's just reality.

    this 16-year-old ninja beat-tamer is the wild card for hip hop

    I have shown so many people my sample sources. When I show them, they don???t believe me.

    Honestly I'd love to hate on this kid but his beats were actually good.

    I was able to catch on of his samples used in that track "Father" he used the drums on "Soft wind" by Gary Pacific Orchestra.

    Its amazing that he's only 16 & I don't want to discourage the yout, but listening to his beat makes me wish that the internet, Microwave, and fruity loops were never invented. Straight up, the web & computers is killing rap music.

    Are you an elitist?

    Yes. Not in the way that I think I am the shit. I am very careful of being cocky.

    But I will be a complete cunt and judge other???s music tastes as inferior.

    There not great but they're not bad either.He's pretty sloppy but I still like this a lot more than 3/4 of mofos on youtube posting their "beat making" videos and all.

    That is definitely retarded. He's nowhere near radio-play quality.

    he name checked DAY so deal



    And when some local kid gets down, they try and drum him out of town.
    They say, you coulda least faked it, boy.
    At an early age he hits the street and winds up tied with who he meets,
    And hes unemployed.
    And the cradle will rock.
    Yeah, the cradle will rock.
    And I say, rock on!
    Rock on!
    Have you seen juniors grades?

    there's no way that was good, not even for 16.

    Unfortunately it's difficult to convey over the internet how much of a passive "good" that was.

    seriously, wtf am i supposed to think when someone describes something as good?



  • come on now, kid is 16 and he's just getting started, and at the stage he's at shit is pretty remarkable. what were most of you doing at that age, ya know? and what do his jazz downtempo ambient beats have to do with rappp? he's not killing any artform.

  • SwayzeSwayze 14,705 Posts
    Not to hate on him, but I'm seriously surprised Gilles Peterson would play this guys music on his show. I listen to Worldwide quite a bit and this guys music just isn't up to scratch, fair play to him for getting it on there though. Maybe something to do with Jose James being on Gilles label, but Jose James LP I liked too, and I'm surprised he'd work with this guy.

    But like I say, fair play to him and at 16 he's gotta lotta scope to improve, so who knows.

    I'm sorry, you're right. He's gone from sergio mendes flexing to making sub-myspace quality beats. Truly a virtuoso and music polymath. Is there anything he can't do poorly?

    Okay, if it makes you happier, he is killing all sample based music.

    Joes James album is on Brownswood (GP's label). There is a Jose James remix album in the works, as head of the label, I assume he is commissioning remixes for it.

    off topic, the Jose James album is incredible. Album of the year for me so far.

    like I said, this thread is instant CATNIP.

    I like Jose James album a lot too, his voice reminds me of Doug Hammond off Tribe.
