  6. Just ME, MAYNE* Says:

    Didn’t Elzhi wanted to rework Nas’ “illmatic”?

    I’m sittin in the wheels on the block blastin’ this BP3.

    tell me why this album is sonically appropriate for the hood to a default. I’m playing already home and ol’ lady across the street that usually ice grills loud music rosa parked it on her stoop listenin’.

    I’m bout to cue up so ambitious and see if she still vibes out.

    Hov won.

    Yea right……

    Hip Hop is dead yo, get ova it already.

  21. Al Poelvordino Says:

    best beats on BP2 > preface best beats
    i can say that too
    preface his an underground true hh album
    wit a cohesion and lyricism

    BP2 was a collection of songs
    no schema. just some hits and tracks
    Poppin’ tags and some others are just sickness, don’t forget too fastly
    ——————————————–

    but it’s not the same type of ish so
    why u try to compare
    black milk did great beats
    but not great crossover beats
    he did more classic beats (underground hiphop)
    no shots. it is what it is. i like his work for sure. he’s dope!

    —————

    yeah, but…

    pure hiphop beats > crossover beats…

    fuck sales…

    i see what your saying though… for whatever reason, Black Milk’s beats dont sell mainstream… people who buy records dont want soul, they want pop … nice, safe, unthreatening beats … SMH

  24. landLORD Says:

    ima check for that YSociety joint… someone else was telling me about it …

  25. landLORD Says:

    i just found it, Al …

  26. Al Poelvordino Says:

    and WHEN I SAY CROSSOVER BEATS
    i don’t say lil wayne lollipop’s shits
    i say some Just Blaze, Kanye Beats
    that’s great beats and plus that’s commercial !

    ps: i mean pre-Graduation era

    people who buy records dont want soul, they want pop … nice, safe, unthreatening beats …
    ============================
    Not true. Kanye’s shit is very soulful. Some of Just Blaze’s shit too. Black Milk makes hot shit but his beats lack commercial appeal. You can have both, a beat that’s just as soulful or just as threatening as you want plus have commercial appeal.

  29. Al Poelvordino Says:

    Black Milk, DJ Khalil, Don Cannon, DJ Toomp, Justice League
    top five “new generation” producers fiyahh!
    some beats are just crazy never the less

    no comparison but next generation was
    Kanye, Blaze, Bink!, Pharrell and Swizz

    in term of dopeness and talent,
    hiphop ain’t dead thus

  30. AmpGeez a.k.a Roll That S#!t, Light That S#!t, Smoke That S#!T Says:

    Black Milk needs to get placements with some bigger artist before he belongs on that list.

  31. Al Poelvordino Says:

    if great emcees
    with commercial appeal and talent
    are hard to find

    there is a lot of dope producers
    in this rap game
    damn crazy beats…
    rick ross, jeezy and luda got it !

    hiphop lives
    but definitely a new vibe

  64. nanyanen Says:

    smh @ “ob4cl2>preface”
    stannery is going too far.
    first off, put raekwon and elzhi side by side lyrically. you cant tell me rae is better and still be considered sane.

    secondly, preface is comprised of black milk production made for the preface. ob4cl2 has some new beats but also relies on alot of overused Dilla beats. no matter how well a rapper flows over it, a dated, over-used beat takes away from the overall composition.

    thirdly, any ep/lp/album/mixtape that has no skip-worthy tracks has one of the criteria for a classic. Everyone on Nah has been in agreement that ob4cl2 has a handful of trash tracks to skip around.imo preface has none.
    lastly, sequels take a back seat to originals. ob4cl1>preface would make a more convincing arguement.

    In conclusion, gtfohwtbs.

    Good day

  66. nanyanen Says:

    its true that those beats havent been featured on a major release until now. But as a Dilla stan, Ive heard those beats way too many times for them to be new.

    ====
    nothing trash on the album. but the recycled tracks defintely flaw the album. he should have kept all the production original the same way the 1st one was or as much as possible.There are some original production on that Chef’s Apron mixtape that would have knocked hard on the album.
    Also, Nah is not the only place people should be seeking opinion. Too many bias cats on here and a whole heep of stanning. Check whats going on other websites. Most are saying that ob4cl2 is that nice.

    Drake Has New Single ‘Shut It Down’ Feat. The-Dream
    Add CommentSeptember 26, 2009 04:50:22 GMT

    The song is said to be about ’empowering females …… When they go out and they get dressed up and put their make-up on and get their hair done, they have the capacity to shut the club down.’

    © Robin Wong/PR Photos
    Drake won’t release his full-length debut album “Thank Me Later” until next year, but he has had a new song selected as the set’s first single. Titled “Shut It Down”, the track which has The-Dream lending his vocal, is slated to come out in the coming weeks.

    Omen, one of the album’s producers, tells Billboard.com “We’re filming a video for it soon helmed by Hype Williams. The track will be serviced just a few weeks after.” As for The-Dream, he is said to have a verse and appear on the last two choruses and on the bridge.

    Describing “Shut It Down” as a “Prince-like, powerful song,” Omen explains it is actually about “empowering females.” He goes on recalling, “Drake said he had a song idea called ‘Shut It Down’ aimed at club-going females. When they go out and they get dressed up and put their make-up on and get their hair done, they have the capacity to shut the club down.”

    “I was working on some drum patterns and 40 had the melody going. 40 is very skilled and has a crazy ear for obscure sounds and chords,” says Omen when referring to Drake’s longtime musical collaborator, 40. “It took us the whole night to come up with the track, but we finished it and played it for Drake the next day, who already had the song’s concept.”

    In related news, “Thank Me Later” reportedly is scheduled for a February 2010 release.

  78. prometheus Says:

    The overall consensus is that OB4CLII > any rap album in 09. Name one album that has got such strong reviews all year. It’s ok, I’ll wait.
