  8. Plug Says:

    to each his own, but that whole cd was bangin to the 5th power, whatever that means. the beats were dramatic, bass-filled, and P talked alot of shit and his swag was just right on that whole cd. I can’t put my finger on it as far as why, but HNIC is one of my all time favorite cd’s.

    >>it’s one thing to pay homage, but to say a MAN is right underneath GOD is a little too much

    you think so? why?

    $$

    Just because… I don’t even feel like making up real reasons, just because is all i can think of.

    this beat is terrible. I’d rather listen to the original all day. This sounds like somebody just pressed play on a beat machine while that commercial is on

  24. Soul Clapper Says:

    Damn… KRS just lost some shine in my eyes. Co-signing Joell is one thing, co-signing the frankly atrocious “Elephant…” album is another.

    Okay, okay… so Fat Joe compared the god to actual God. That doesn’t mean you should give his garbage album a pass. The track Chris Martin hooked up (no Coldplay) and the track Kris blessed were alright. The rest… smh. What happened to the dude from ‘Represent’?

    I can’t believe KRS co-signed this album, just because the dude is from the BX. Maybe he let D-Nice and Miss Melody come through and eat the buffet.

    When I was a kid, I asked my sister (who’s older than I by 6 years) what the “MCM” on them outfits stood for.

    She told me “Mom’s Cornmeal”

    “Eat The Buffet” is not a euphemism, btw.

    …you should be ashamed

    @ Clap
    Yeah I hear ya homie, it’s funny because the dude was droppin CD’s non stop from 03-06 then came to a screaching halt. Wikipedia says the next solo is called “Doompostor”

  40. Soul Clapper Says:

    It is interesting. Did The Roots ever come out and defend the song? No “creativity blah blah blah …” speech?

    ***Defending that song= standing up for gay rights

  49. Mark Twain Fame Says:

    alot of people said shit was wack, but it def was different sounding, I liked it.

  50. Mark Twain Fame Says:

    I think they did it the right way and they felt like they didnt have to defend it at all, it is something they like, people that will dig it will listen to it and if you dont then fine, dont listen…I think it was self explanitory without them coming out goin all crazy on defending the song ya know.
