    ^ *sigh*… and I’m a Crakk stan (no Biggums), but it’s not looking promising. But he still got his deal with Amalgam so hopefully we’ll see something by the Summer. Spanish enthused rappers have been known for a few heaters for the hot weather (c) BeatNuts, Nore, TS, J. Lo (don’t front)

    yes and yes and ur correct it happens all the time but that was the least of it…he just appeared to be incapable of expressing his ideas in a cohesive, thoughtful manner…and if that was Gucci up there I wouln’t have expected anything else. But Mos is an articulate brotha and it seemed like he turned his coon on

    >>thas just his one of his professions. mos isnt responsible for AA edicate becuz hes on a talk show expressing his views in a manner that fits his persona.

    Belligerence & articulation isn’t a measure of someone’s intelligence. That’s like saying because he didn’t use the Queens english, he must be a bufoon & we know that isn’t right. i really don’t think it was that serious. The show is about entertainment too.

    Now? Neither one of them niggas is even close to their best, but Jay seems to have more of the fighting spirit in him currently. So yea, right now, Jay would eat him alive (ll).

    At their respective peaks, around 97-99? Yea, it definetly couldve gone either way. Considering their statues as king of the mainstream/underground respectively, at that time, that battle wouldve been ill.

    Nah, cos street niggaz can be articulate (see any 5 percenter). I’m speaking more about presenting ur ideas in a thoughtful and convincing as opposed to pronunication and grammatical correctness.

    u right but he’s not a comedian, he’s an intelligent, well-read dude who was speaking about some real shit and making some very necessary, contrarian viewpoints that deserved more than his flippant presentation of them.

    I wouldn’t say it’d be a cakewalk, but yeah. Hov would son that nigga like Erykah Badu.

    niggas must think we are in 95 or 03…i guess nobody has heard hov’s SLU bars or his jockin jay-z song

    Hov = Willie Mays on the Mets…falling over him self in Center Field

  108. Voltron Says:

    Desire was a perfect album.

    On all sides: lyrically, production, concepually (Trilogy, When The Gun Draws), musically.

    He drops some of the greatest lyrics ever on this album (Agent Orange, Free, Lets Go etc.). Its the complete opposite of Internal Affair’s rawness. Instead, its beautiful.

    As an album, from a music lover, you cannot tell me that Finding Forever, which was an album with few good songs on it, Eardrum, which was… (what was it?) and American Gangster which was the best out of the competition but cannot stand up to the timelessness of Desire. It also had bad songs (Say Hello, Party Life).

    Desire – Best album of 2007 and an album in the hip-hop hall of fame.

    Party Life a bad song?

    Nah b. Far from it.

    But if you believe Desire is a classic, I can’t fault you.

    Just find me one professional critic who agrees.

    ^ Party Life was admittedly mediocre (though the beat was crazy), but Say Hello bad? Nah.

    thas one of those crescendo songs just cuz of the layering of the beat w/the sample……then by the middle of the 3rd verse when hes ra pa pa pa did fire shit…….sounds like you in a smoky juke joint w/bumpy knuckles and a whole buncha prohibition era gangstas smokin cohibas.

    my fault si. what i meant was that their a strong hip-hop group who puts together a dope string of jams on mixtapes, ep’s, etc. minstrel show was mostly centered in my opinion around the frustration of the music industry. by the time getback came out they went thru gettin axed from atlantic and it seems like they just got back to that formula but put it on an album. i just said NC cuz of where they’re from and cause they IMO are the closest rendering of ATCQ (not the infamous athernaffy nah commenter) as it relates to consistent solid work.

    I wouldnt buy a keyboard if your wanting to get into production, Just Get reason and a midi controller which is a keyboard but doesnt have a sound module in it hooks up to your comp via a usb and controls the synths in reason. Should be around 700 max. U might want to get recycle with reason if your plaining on doing sample based production.

  136. silas Says:

    fyi Reason is a computer based production platform some consider it a DAW The shortcomings on the vocal part makes me say otherwise. A lot of people use Fruitty loops cheaper than reason but doesnt have the amount of synth and other stuff reason has.

    Soulja boy = fruitloops

    dre = reason

    I say that because this is what ive seen them using in vids.

    Dre mainly uses rare synths and keyboards as well as live instrumentation such as orchestras.
