    RE : My Darlin Baby

    Lack of a real hook for starters

    ^^
    Normally I’d agree, but the back and forth and the soulfoulness are reminescent of “Oh Boy” to me, another song without a “real hook”. Thats the thing, the sample kind of makes the whole song a hook.

  11. Smoke Greene Says:

    Wale isn’t garbage but I’ve never been compelled to play his music. i mean, I’ll listen to a track or mixtape, looking for something to grab onto but for sheer enjoyment?
    Nah.

    Wait, I’m lying.

    Nike Boots was kinda tuff.

    I see he was determined to release “Rebirth”.

    ^that beat’s cheesy to me, but cole and jay handled it well. i could see wale spitting over it to. nhoc.

    Co-sign. That wouldve been a dope intro. The beat is tailor made for a dope live performance.

    I think my son is buying me one but i’m not supposed to know. How was that netflix streaming movie on the ps3?

    ^ ^
    GARBAGE compared to the way it runs on my Xbox36O. Not to mention the user interface but I guess its fine.

    It will probably be better in a yea when Sony gets the rights to an app on the counsel.

  17. Joe 88 Says:

    I’ve heard Wale 2 times and that’s all I needed. On to the next one

  18. b-ease Says:

    I see he was determined to release “Rebirth”.

    ^^
    Yea, and the label decided to meet him halfway. When it gets (fairly) heckled, he’ll be able to claim it as a side project, not a solo album, and his “legacy” doesnt really have to take a hit.

  19. why? Says:

    Since the Carter 3 Wayne has had an increase in fans who listen to rock more than hip hop. Plus the guy is played on the radio as many times as a michael jackson song after his death. Those cacafaces want Rebirth. The hip hop stans wants a Carter 4 that is a better follow up to the carter 2 than 3.

  20. Joe 88 Says:

  21. Smoke Greene Says:

    Maybe, but it doesn’t really work the same way. You could still sing along with “Oh Boy”. Cam & Juelz could really play with the sample in their verses. Not to say “My Darling” isn’t fire, but at 5 minutes, it wouldn’t get that many spins regardless of the hook.

  22. Joe 88 Says:

    I think there releasing “rebirth” so the labels can have a retail wayne album in the stores when he goes off to jail.

    Can’t make any money off a mixtape

  23. D_Block_4_Life Says:

    Ease, you heard BISD?

  24. D_Block_4_Life Says:

    If that was the case, C4 was the way to go.

  25. D_Block_4_Life Says:

    When does that negro go to jail? Does he have a date? nh

  26. Smoke Greene Says:

    They already signed Kevin Rudolf. They didn’t need to try & pull this Rebirth shit cause you risk losing fans. But….

    “the label decided to meet him halfway. When it gets (fairly) heckled, he’ll be able to claim it as a side project, not a solo album, and his “legacy” doesnt really have to take a hit.”

    ^^
    Naw, not yet. But I’m hearing relatively positive things. I never heard Curtis in its entirety, just the songs he made videos for.

    He’s still my favorite rapper in every aspect except the music. That dude is hilarious.

    Just wanted to get that out the way.

  30. b-ease Says:

    If that was the case, C4 was the way to go.

    ^^
    Naw, because if there was enought dope Wayne material to make a C4 at this point, it’d be dropping. The “Carter” series means your getting a quality album, no need to ruin that when you could drop Rebirth/Young Money and still make a shitload of bread.

  31. Brooklyn Strong aka The Elder Says:

    @Smoke Greene
    Is that you Amp / Dame?

  32. Joe 88 Says:

    If that was the case, C4 was the way to go.

    ^True, but reeasing C4 would take away from the steam and the buzz young money has right now. All of them have mixtapes out (some that don’t get posted on nah right) and they just had a huge single a few months ago with “every girl”

    If they released C4, wayne wouldn’t be here to promote it, or go on tour, it’s better to release this throw away album “rebirth” instead of fucking up the money maker C4 will be cause wayne inst here.

    This is actually a smart idea, this double album will hold the stans over til he comes home

  44. TheCo!!inB Says:

    I’m pretty sure I’m done buyin Wayne albums. Kid never really had anything of substance to say and he’s never matched the first Carter. Truth really be told Carter 2 & 3 are wack. Beats are wack, concepts are wack. His bars barely save him but he just hasn’t said shit for 3 years now…..minus that Death Wish verse where he got Jada.

  45. b-ease Says:

    and have his bunkmate jot that shit down on some toilet paper

    ^^
    That’d be a bawse move and really really gay at the same time.

  46. Plug Says:

    LF: I just had to delete my facebook page due to major security leaks. my babymoms was taggin me to all types of pics. when I called her out on it, she started typing all types of reckless fockery. posting my government name and all types of mess. she even brought up the hunnet bucks I ganked from her. SMDH. I shoulda copied it so I could post it.

  47. G7 Says:

    >>Anyone cop Street Hop?

    ^nope. blank Memorex disc.

  48. b-ease Says:

    Truth really be told Carter 2 & 3 are wack.

    ^^
    Eh, I havent listened to the Carter 3 since it dropped, but it worked for what it was. No-sign on Carter 2 being wack tho.

    The Block is Hot and Lights Out >>> The Carters

    The new lebron 7 aren’t that great IMO.

  50. Smoke Greene Says:

    If that was the case, C4 was the way to go.
    ================================
    He wasn’t ready to make that album. To try and follow C3 right up with C4 could only have resulted in failure. Touring & putting energy into Young Money was the right move.

    ^I would co-sign, but the first carter is a monster, I think wayne was at his best around that time late 03′-04′ wayne was on a mission, and not saying stupid shit like “I can eat a star”

    The concepts on the first carter totally outshine everything he did on the next installments.

    Wayne hit his peak on Carter 1 and both Dedication mixtapes. after that he was just puttin out music 24/7 to show he was workin hard but he wasn’t rappin like he had somethin to prove, he was just rapping……a lot
    God bless Gillie for bringing Wayne from Wobbldy Wobbldy to The cops is watchin the streets is talkin ya girl is unfaithful ya family ungrateful ya niggas aint loyal ya niggas aint lawyers and err body saw ya, and aint that a bitch.
