  17. tyrone biggums Says:

    i’d rather a new q-tip album than just about anything right now….my only slight concern is he gets too abstract but if he is doing an album with common maybe they will both just spit….or common could go back to be more abstract…..

    I don’t know how I feel about this… I should be excited, but everything I’ve heard from Q-Tip in the past two years has been wack, and I usually like his music… maybe they can vibe off each other (none) and it will turn out to be good…

    Actually, i’m gonna dub the CD to tape once i purchase it. Then i’m gonna play it in my whip

    (which has a CD player AND tape player, but i’m gonna use the tape player just to be that stubborn cat who wants to feel a lil nostalgic from time to time).

    then, i’m gonna get a high-top fade and start breakdancing on cardboard.

    >>i wanna take it back to 94.. before we had album leaks and heavy bootlegging. where you copped an album, and read the liner notes while you read it.

    guys, seriously, those days are over. LET IT GO. now its about turning on your ipod and seeing the playlist name. smh @ hip-hop fans stubbornly holding on to the past. if you really wanna take it back, why don’t you try to get Def Jam to press Graduation up on cassette?

    smmfh

    ^^^

    If those days were truly over, there would be no CD to buy in the first place. I can’t speak for everyone here, but I know I only use my iPod at the gym and at work every now and again…CDs (or their mechanical equivalent) will be relevant for a while…

    Cosign Phuque. Ya’ll know how late I am on shit.. I’m burning a hundred MP3s on a CD at a time and rocking that way.

    Apple can kiss my ass if they think I’m dropping $500 on a motherfucking iPod.

    I cop CDs, CDs I cop. I-I-I cop ‘em.

    noSur! i have an iPod in both cars & 1 in the crib, and IM WAITIN for the new shit with the Full Video touchscreen to drop in the next few weeks.

    if Curtis ships 1,000,000 records… does he think he won?

  122. State of Grace Says:

    Why does it have to be one or the other? Cds I’m really excited about I will go and purchase, even if I have a digital version of it before it comes out, because some of the better artists actually use the entire format as art and not just the music. Artwork (which loses compared to vinyl art anyway) can make something worth owning and keeping for years, but a lot of music is so ready-made to be disposed of these days that I feel no remorse for downloading it. Anyone spending money on albums like Curtis needs to be put through an intensive four-week seminar about how that same money can be used for other things, like food or drugs

    yeah man.. the digital age is cool and all.. but the biggest let down is about how fans act. I mention i’m looking forward to Dope Artist 1′s album and people like “yeah, but he aint gonna sell more than Smedium Rapper 072182931′s album”.. or tryna clown Dope Artist 1 cause he’s an indy rapper versus some generic rapper’s major label “success”. I think somewhere down the line fans got too wrapped up in the label/marketing politics and forgot to listen to the music. hip hop is the new wwf (c) T.Kwe

  131. ElGringoColombiano Says:

    Rey Hussein, if la feria is an issue, you can cop 512 MB (~7 album) MP3 for like $30.

    Go to a Microcenter retail store, or search pricegrabber.com on the internets

    Damn for $150 these days you could prolly cop a 20 GB mp3 player.

    IMHO the greatness of the MP3 player is too ill to still be fockin with mp3 cd players.

    BTW there are many vendors besides Apple, Creative, SanDisk etc. You don’t have to fock with Apple [||] if you don’t want to.

    This has been an ElGringoColombiano Consumer Report.

    That lupe track is fire. Props TyBigs on that Jay Elec album.
    I started listening to it this morning only got to Renaissance Man. That track is serious.

  134. Rey Says:

    @WiB– Of course.. It’s why people think 50 is awesome. He can’t rap anymore, but dang, look at that portfolio!

    Fuck a portfolio.

    Crazy Rey Party > Massacre, and most likely Curtis.

    crazy whats your email again

  138. ElGringoColombiano Says:

    Yall stop worrying about sales & the WWF nonsense.

    Take that time, & investigate the underground. There’s many several dope albums dropping in the underground yearly.

    2006′s Panacea & ShinSight Trio were CLASSICs IMHO. No hypberbole, no stannery. Ill shit right there. ShinSight Trio the best jazz-rap since Tribe’s Midnight Marauders.

  139. State of Grace Says:

    Probably healthier for you too Rey, that Curtis will rot your mind. Plus, the wings let you look at titties, Curtis makes you look at that awful picture of him that hootie has framed over his and ‘Twan’s bed

  140. Rey Says:

    Thanks El Gringo.. Honestly tho’, I listen to actual industry CDs way more than I listen to burned CDs.. I’m sure I’ll cop an MP3 player eventually, but for now I’m good.

    Thanks again.

  141. ElGringoColombiano Says:

    damn I’m excited for this Q-Tip/Common album. It could be very good. Hopefully it will get to be released, & not get focked by label politricks

  142. Words is Born Says:

    @ LL – I’m sayin’… not like i’m trying to drop monumental gems or anything.. but it clearly relates.

    anyway, wha’s good wit Fif? Any news on the quality of his effort?

    lol @ this “playing out”…..gonna be shelved like abwhacks other “projects”

  146. big lite Says:

    Common and QTip look gay as hell in that picture. Been heard QTip go both ways and wouldn’t be surprised if Common goes that route. He used to dress like ah BBoy. I guess he feels like now that he done got ah little money he can be who he always wanted to be…..ah fag. He be wearin’ tight pants and t-shirts too.

  147. Nah Right » Blog Archive » Common Says New Album in November Says:

    [...] Common tells MTV that he’s going to drop his next album, The Believer, in November. He also insists that the project with Q-Tip is actually going to happen. “Q-Tip and I been planning the Standard album,” he said, referring to the duo the pair have formed. “We been conceptualizing, but we just gotta continue to work on it. We will. I look at it like two jazz musicians getting together, the way Charlie Parker and cats would get together and do work. I feel a lot more free with my music now that I’m doing films and stuff, because I don’t put as much pressure on the music. It ain’t my only source of income and way to make a living.” [...]
