    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    with all due respect RZA fell the fuck off..nigga need to get back to the dark grimy samples instead of the orchestra-guitar sounds

    Also, that Rae tracklist got me kind of hyped, shit looks amazing. We’ll see how it all turns out….

  11. dontusuallywrite Says:

    long time reader first time writer (ha) but I think the production will be ill…didn’t realize that rza did New Wu so he didn’t fall off bc thats the joint…that necro produced G Hide is straight fire though! I liked that State of Grace track released back in the day but I guess that didnt make the album

  12. jimmy valentime Says:

    NovemberEnd aka Respect The Architect Never Test The Elohim

    Can agree with that but if he wanted
    To go with dilla, alchemist, pete rock

    He should gave a name along the lines of some thing like fishscale to show he back on the crime rhyme tip…

    It might be a great lp but its not a cuban sequal

    Rza production style define cuban

    Look at immobalirty & lex diamond story and tell me some thing diff

    24 track album pretty much ensures some filler joints. Rae would be better off cutting that down to 18 tops.

    And 24 tracks doesnt garentee filler…half of those tracks could be 2:00min long…the other half could be skits…have to hear it first

    Tracklist got me fiending for this shit now

    I think theres more than one version of it though

    Cos the version he was talking about had minimal amounts of Ghost on it…Deck & GZA were meant to take the “Co-Starring” roles

    people need to start hollaring at Fizzy Womack more often for beats. He’s got some heat!! Made some real nice contributions to that Wu Chamber Music album.

  43. The Shot Clock aka Guns is me Says:

    to be fair tho, RZA’s presence was felt on that album- it was a mild departure.

    He only made about 4 beats on the entire album though…

    He did every beat on Ironman, bar one

  47. The Shot Clock aka Guns is me Says:

    The tracklist looks bloated….

    he need to cut the number of tracks and number of guests in half.

  48. AmpGeez a.k.a. Fuck Yo' Thoughts Says:

    OB4CLII is a tossup.

    I don’t care who’s on the beat, if Rae ain’t snapping like he needs to, it won’t matter.

  49. G7 Says:

    Hiphop Lives w/Krs Marley made a few grimey cuts. past his best though.

  54. RIGZ Says:

    last dope Marley Marl beat I heard was on that Rae “Heroin Only” mixtape (which is classic btw)

    shit sounded like a vintage RZA beat

    The KRS LP had joints tho…so did that LP he did with Craig G

    Toughhh

  56. Brooklyn Strong Says:

    On September 26th 2007, the search for Conway brought Bergen County Prosecutors Office Detective Dave Borzotta to Max B’s residence at 1950 Andrews Avenue in the Bronx. According to the detective, Mr. Wingate was very helpful. “Mr. Wingate dealt himself in,” Borzotta would later recall at trial. He was forthcoming about his dealings with Ms. Conway and even told them addresses she was known to frequent. Max revealed that she could be at “Murda” Mike’s, where stolen property was later found. Max also told them about Sin City, close to where they ultimately caught her. Max gave the officer his cell number and even called him on more then one occasion during the preliminary investigation. Borzotta recalled one instance when he went to interview Max and the rapper was outside his Bronx residence, talking on the phone with Jim Jones. “The police talking to me about some bullshit,” Max was overheard telling his future nemesis. Max even let the police search his apartment to look for Gina.
