  • batmon said:staxwax said:I massively preferred Biggie to MC eiht. And Ready To Die was so big and cinematic sonically, nothing CMW put out could really fuck with that. Some revisitations just work i suppose. I liked the whole petestrumentlas project…
  • HarveyCanal said:I love it when they call me Big Bad Taste... not trying to be the poster boy for biggie smalls fandom by any stretch of the imagination. And big poppa was one of the corniest tunes on ready to die imo. UGK and CMW m…

  • HarveyCanal said:The American South brought us jazz, rock-n-roll, and funk, but yeah, somehow when it comes to rap, it's only about bad taste. How dare UGK loop up some Curtis Mayfield and the Isley Brothers and rap in their own accents? Obv…

  • Rishan said:Staxwax, no love for Resurrection? I can do without everything else Common ever did, but that LP is top ten list. No I.D's production is just impeccable. b/w Why is this surprising? Is there anyone here who likes (I mean RE…
  • Yeah i thought warning was the shit. I dug only when im drunk too. First liks is a certified classic. New & improved flavours and stylings.

  • I really liked this busta freestyle from 95 on that doowop tape, other than that, cant really listen to him without wanting to break stuff
  • tech12z said:staxwax said: Dr Lecter is the closest thing to an all the way bonafide classic NY rap album weve had in the last decade Dr. Lecter over Rare Chandeliers?! Yes Lecter is #1 imo. Id still cop a vinyl releas…
  • white_tea said:I checked out Ghostface's latest album from the library a few weeks ago and it was terrible. Unfortunately for Ghostface, if it's a debate about who's penning the most compelling Ghostface-style rhyme in 2015, it's probably Bronsolino…
  • Going back into my west coast section. Mid eighties to late nineties west coast, oh mannn. Honestly for all his straining nothing on Lamars new record is fucking with this - musically, lyrically, emotionally, vibe-ically or production wise. 1991.…

  • Ive made an extensive kids playlist for the wee'uns to listen to in the car - they request new favorites and I add them, obliviously. It gets played a lot on long drives. In the process I've grown overly fond of and have verbatim sing along r…
  • Seriously its embarassing how often i've listened to this track in the last two weeks.
  • batmon said:Tracks 1 thru 7 = huh? Sounding like a mid 90s bill laswell produced pfunk jawn. Ive really made the effort to get in to his stuff - only standout on MAAD city for me was Swimming Pools. I just need more hi impact rappin…
  • Hmm lately ive been tempted, as a long time collector, to pick up the pace in regards to collecting new (hip hop) releases on limited vinyl runs. Quite a few of these releases increase in value a while after the drop. There's a whole slew of little …
  • Ahhh, got it, I misunderstood you. I thought we were talking about copyright law and creative license. You're actually saying something much simpler -- it's ok to interpret and build on the sound of the artists that preceded you, just as …
  • like I said - whether or not this is in fact a copyright infringement under the letter of the law or not, Thicke has been covering/ripping off Gaye for a while now (even that trouble man rip off isnt touted a as a gaye cover, you have to read the sm…
  • Not sure about those 'other' Prince be productions, they mustve been even more on the pop side of things Cool interview though. Not sure if this was shared yet but Chemist posted an Bambaataa acetate mix, since Soulman talks about them blowin…

  • Sample, cover, and imitate to your hearts content, just make sure you (or your record company) can pay the bill. Otherwise, "it aint a crime if you dont get caught". Blurred lines is incredibly similar to Got to give it up; i…
