#323

Yeah im all for it. im w chairman that i havent cared about a rapper v rapper dis track in a long time so it was good to hear someone actually land some punches. the best dis tracks are supposed to make you wince a bit. i was reminded this morning of my last favorite dis track which was dj quik vs… his own sister, which is absolutely brutaaall


#324

very harsh on meek, this,


#325

their 2nd album is a v mixed bag but i kinda love it. no one heard it since lt flopped by all accounts. ski beatz produced 90% of it like their debut, but he seemed to be a little out of great ideas by this point (somewhat got his groove back with pilot talk I and II years later).

Glow is a top 5 camp lo track


this beat is so good

I like a lot of the stuff theyve done since but it’s not essential listening by any stretch,


#326

I mean he did get beaten by Drake… Pusha showing how its done.


#327

Black Thought and 9th Wonder :+1:


#328

This is good. The first two tracks are fucking great.


#329

This is great. Struggling to keep up with stuff at the moment. Lots of interesting stuff coming out.


#330

Didn’t even know it existed till this morning, great surprise


#331

Enjoying this. Really like ELUCID at the moment. He also has a new Armand Hammer thing coming out soon. Rome is one of my favourite albums in recent years. Like a modern Cold Vein.


#332

Great performance of If You Know You Know here: https://youtube.com/watch?v=zGchOptfU-Q


#333

Did you guys like the Dynospectrum? Slug from Atmosphere, I Self Devine, beats by Ant. Was never a huge Atmosphere fan, but loved this album. Had a really weird vibe to it. Great production.

Anyway. It’s getting a reissue.


#334

Some great stuff on the new Jay Rock record


#335

Seems that Blackstar/Pharcyde/Hypnotic Brass Ensemble gig was cancelled

Edit: just moved, I think, my bad


#336

Enjoying the new stuff from Freddie Gibbs and Westside Gunn.


#337

don’t feel even slightly up to date this year, but been enjoying this solo outing from one of the Underachievers quite a bit

#338

this is good fun from the guys behind Fela Soul and Bizarre Tribe 2 The Pharcyde… lovingly crafted bootleg remixes


#339

Double album from Drake. Sure that’ll be quality front to back


#340

Did anyone ever listen to More Life? I know it’s lame but I basically enjoyed Take Care, Nothing Was The Same and IYRTIATL, but Views was SO boring I couldn’t even stick it as a production mood piece.


#341

havent listened to a full drake album since take care tbf


#342

can’t imagine listening to this one through unless it gets real high praise. brevity was never exactly Drake’s strong point but i think since views he’s very much settled on a no. of tracks = streams = $$$ formula, with an added element of throwing enough shit so that something sticks. not one of the last 3 albums has clocked in under 80 minutes. and it doesn’t seem to be as a result of him having a glut of new stuff to say
