    Eagles looking real shitty right now.

  2. GMLLZ Says:

    No one really expected Cleveland to win right?

    G.o.o.d Friday tracks > g-unit radio 1-30 mix tapes combined

    Say I’m line

    @ Marv

    his name is Apex

    some industry cocksucker called Scoot Boogie used to go on Soundclick and steal beats from the top 10 on the Soundclick, then go to a&r’s and rappers to sell them off. but a g-unit a&r got curious when they wanted to use the beat and he couldnt get the multi tracks to it

    it all worked out well in the end, Apex got a deal with EMI Publishing on the strength of one beat

  5. Charles Oakley Says:

    As a cohesive whole? Maybe. Track for track? Nosign. Nothing on MBDTF quite reaches the heights of Flashing Lights, Cant Tell Me Nothing, or Good Morning.

    Yeah, Graduation sounded disjointed to me, random tracks placed in tracklist. I think the best songs on Dark Fantasy (pause) are on par with the best on Graduation (if not better), but I think the worse tracks on Graduation are shittier than their more recent counterparts.

    “Many Men” is 50′s top song IMO

    ^ I see.

    50 Bars
    Gunz Come Out
    I’m Supposed To Die Tonight
    My Toy Soldier
    Position Of Power

    I’d put all those five above Many Men.

    Also, I heard good things about the tapes 50 dropped in ’08 [if I’m not mistaken,] but never got around to check ‘em.
    ___________
    Yeah I never listened to War Angel or any of those…

    And I don’t know the connection really, but you reminded me:
    Eminem – Like Toy Soldiers > 50 – My Toy Soldier

    Your not but Lying > line

  10. NovemberEnd Says:

    50 Bars
    Many Men
    Back Down
    Power Of Position
    What Up Gangsta

    any order

  11. Fuck boy music Says:

    Good Friday tracks was an unprecedented event in hip hop rap

    Nobody has ever done anything like that before

    Kanye west > 50 cent

    Common > Lloyd banks

    Big Sean > young buck

    Cyhi da prince > tony yayo

  12. Harlem World Says:

    ” Kanye was the first artist to moonwalk too… ”

    “50 cent cant pass through Queens..”

  13. Charles Oakley Says:

    In my personal bias opinion:

    1) Late Registration
    2) College Cropout
    3) Dark Fantasy
    4) Graduation
    5) 808’s

  14. Marv Says:

    @ Harlem

    This industry is so shady man…

    Word to FLOCKA!….

    Glad Apex got that deal though….

    *Daps*

  15. Deen Says:

    The PA person in Cleveland trying to instigate a riot. Playing tracks from The Chronic and shit. That’s that LA Riot Soundtrack…

  16. NovemberEnd Says:

    Position Of Power > Power Of Position

  17. Harlem World Says:

    G-Unit was a Championship winning team.

    Even Gayme had bangers at the time.

    No way in hell G.O.O.D Music is seeing G-Unit in their prime, not even the mixtape era G-Unit.

    Agreed

  19. Hopp Says:

    50 Bars is a great track.

  20. Harlem World Says:

    RIP Cavs

  21. cOLD Says:

    damn Cyhi Da Prince emptied the clip and reloaded in that toca freestyle.

    I slept. He got that Elzhi flow tho.

  22. Charles Oakley Says:

    I actually dug that VH1 Storytells more than 808’s, and don’t sleep on Late Orchestration.

    Get Well Soon >>>>

    I’m Good >>>>

  23. ThatMan Says:

    Kid Cudi > Yayo

    *blank stare*

  24. cOLD Says:

    how much does an on air radio personality make.. Like Toca on Shade for example. Is that not the perfect gig.

  25. PHENOMENON Says:

    Man, that Suicide Hotline is gonna be BUZZIN’ in Cleveland tonight.

    the big bad wolf came to town and blew the Cavs house down.

  34. PHENOMENON Says:

    Egh, I don’t like the way that game ended though. The Heat showed mercy the whole 4th quarter.

    For me:

    1. College Dropout
    2. MBDTF (although it’s close and I only had the album for a couple of weeks)
    3. Graduation
    4. LR
    5. 808 (although I like it more than I thought I would)

  36. Evan Says:

    How are yall gonna say Bun B don’t deserve five mics. Dudes a legend. I mean Kanye deserves it as well, just don’t count out Bun just because yall don’t understand southern rap.

  37. Balls Deep Says:

    if this got 5 mics Gutter Water has to get 10 mics

  38. Jerry Nice Says:

    ^^^^
    Alchemist is a legendary producer, but anything he rhymes on automatically loses 2 points, 2mics, what the fuck ever…but his rhyming is terrible at best. Some producers should stay behind their mpc’s.

  39. Jerry Nice Says:

    don’t understand southern rap.

    ^^^^^
    Haha, don’t understand….that is probably the least likely of reason people don’t like most southern Mc’s. And Bun B is cool but you can’t actually believe he is capable of earning 5 mics….his content is about as expansive as Games.

  40. thenotoriousdap Says:

    Stop it is the source even credible anymore? Yes it’s a dope album….4 mics yeah 5….get the fuck out of here……no one is buying the source anymore so they’re trying to sell units on the basis of bucking the norm, to quote will farrell trying to be “provocative”…marcberg, till the casket, evn ross album before this…i listen to 1-2, then 7-10, that leaves 7 OK song please stop dick eating this pompous prick he’s a dope producer but thats it. and to all the dick eaters continue doing so…i.e this is the greatest album ever or the shoulda gave him 6 mics….eat major penis..thanks.

  41. thenotoriousdap Says:

    hell Arcade fire album suburbs was better than this shit and that aint even hip hop…….say werd!

  42. shawamar Says:
