    @Hopp you dropped the link in the previous thread? I don’t see it. Can you post it again?

  10. THUNDERKUSH Says:

    Definitely a STACKED album, but it just bothers me that so many artists rely on features as a crutch to move their albums or get some sort of attention, because let’s be honest here (i’m not saying he isn’t a dope MC) how many of us would even be paying to banks if it wasn’t for the association with artists like Kanye or Pusha T, Raekwon or Fab ?

    @TS,

    you from the Chi right?

    what do you think of the recent Kanye Music? despite the fuckery.

    ^I think his music fall off slightly. He no longer can make a beat like “Guess Who’s Back” on his own anymore. Most of the recent beats have been over-produced and lacking real soul quality.

    His rhyming really wasn’t that great to begin with. He just had punchlines, themes, and a lot of similies. He lost a lot of that to me.

    His dress code:…………THE FUCK?!?!?…………………….

    The art work and his cinematography skill went through the roof though. So has a lot of his visuals

    I ain’t impressed with him but I’ll still listen to support artists from my city.

  18. Troubleshooter1900 Says:

    But with all of that said though, he’s still better than most of the bullshit on the radio.

    @Hopp appreciate that.

    Nah I understand. I was just wondering.

    I agree that the music aint as good, but I still like it. Maybe because everythinng else being released is so bad.

    ^it doesn’t mean he set a trend. nobody out there saying “let me try what Jay did 12 years ago.” right now its just desperate times. Units aren’t moving anymore and the sequels seem more a like a last ditch effort at glory. War Report 2 sold 300 copies. Do you think we’ll see a War Report 3 anytime soon??

    ^
    I mean, sure, you could be right, but i don’t go into the album thinking that way. I go in thinking what a potential Banks x SP song can song like, or a Banks x Rae, or a Banks x Pusha. The idea of that is still exciting for me as a hip-hop head. I can understand why you feel the way you do, but i don’t share those sentiments. I thought TD was excellent and you didn’t. Sooo, it is what it is.

    U mean Hard Knock Life Vol. 2?? Very good album, not a great album though… definitely his move to crossover into “Hip-Pop” territory… he got some crazy bangers on that album… After Reservoir Dogs, Memph Bleek had the best track on the album with that Intro…. The verse of his life!

    “First gun two bullets niggaz know I do pull it
    Niggaz tryin’ to kill me dog who wouldn’t?

    In regards to Ross i’ll say he does a good job getting his features in the stu together and it sounds real. but as far as his album goes he had a little too much features and offered little variation in terms of content besides Tears of Joy.

    that’s what i’m sayin. you don’t see it that much in the underground, but in the mainstream its outta hand. every album now has a dozen features or more. look at Rick Ross. 7 solo tracks combined over his last 3 albums!! he can’t carry an album on his own. smh.

    Nah.

    But I’m sayin’, even before I hear the final product and check if the music is in fact good, I don’t have a problem wit’ deciding to do features.

    My problem is that it seems like a solo track is no longer an option.

    Aside from J. Cole and maybe 10 other rappers, pretty much no one else is having it. And it could STILL be good music, no kanye … Word to I’m Not A Star …

    If a Rnb artist sings the hook, and a rapper has 3 verses, you don’t consider that a solo? I thought everyone always has…

  120. Deen Says:

    I can honestly say that I’ve never complained about an artist just doing his own thing without features. When I listen to an artist, I want to hear THAT artist. The exception is 808s and Heartbreaks. I maintain that Kanye would have had a strong effort with that one if he got actual singers to sing on it, rather than moaning like a depressed bitch through a voice-box.

    Guests are cool, but in small doses and if they have some thing unique to contribute, even if it’s just background vocals or adlibs

    You can’t say that the 16 year old blueprint of Illmatic is so outdated that as to have become a bad idea. Classic albums tend to have certain things in common, Illmatic just happens to be one of the few classics that seems to have every factor. That’s why I use it as the Blueprint.

    I’m still not offended. No need to keep trying though.

    By my logic, Life After Death and The Chronic are classic, but they aren’t the equal of Illmatic to me. You probably could have found better examples though. Life After Death is a DOUBLE album, thus having a ton of guests is justifiable. You don’t want the listener to get bored. The Chronic is only a solo album in name; it’s mostly a showcase for Dr. Dre’s uniform production and his crew of rappers, who all happen to rap about the same awesome shit throughout.

    Eh, authentic is too subjective. You don’t like Ross as an artist in general, so his songs with features are naturally going to sound forced, or unnatural to you, when in fact, with the possible exception of Jadakiss on MM3, I think every guest on Teflon Don was weaved into the fabric of the LP very well. Gucci gave an uninspiring performance, but him appearing on MC Hammer made total sense to me.

    In any event, I think a better articulation of my point is that the best barometer of a classic album is classic albums that we’ve all listened to in the past. I just happen to think Illmatic is the best of those classics. One of the things that stands out about Illmatic is the lack of guests.

    I think some classics are better than others. In my opinion, the best ones have fewer guests.

    1st off the music is wack right now! Sorry but it’s the truth… There is no essence or vibe to any of this shit being released right now! None of these Ye tracks, none of these Banks tracks will are memorable… the last joint that dropped that was worthy was Exhibit C… That shows you how pitiful Hip Hop is right now, and how bad of a place it’s in right now! Niggas are overly optimistic so they forget to play devil’s advocate with reality!

    There is absolutely a method to Ross’ madness. His talent lies more with putting the right people and sounds together than rapping. He’d be an excellent executive producer so long as he can understand another artists vision.

    I do think he’s going to have to show another side of himself on his next album though.

    I’ll agree to disagree from 1 standpoint… As talented as Banks is… he has yet to put out an album on the level of The Natural, at the end of the day that’s what it’s really about.

    Honestly, I think THAT is the biggest difference in hip-hop now. EVERYBODY raps now, or produces, or knows someone that can. Nobody listens to music without comparison to other music or their boys n them, etc. People say STAN whenever you say you like an artist, or say something positive, and call you a hater when you give a critique that isn’t positive. Its impossible to be a fan now– niggas and kizzas dissect the music months before release, listen to leaks, watch trailers for videos, and download mixtape after mixtape until they get tired of the artist… then they throw them away.

    I agree with this wholeheartedly. I really consider myself a student of the art of rapping. So many rappers bore me because their technique is terrible. Everyone comes off as bored and uninterested in the art of putting together words, voice modulation, syllable count, etc, rhyme scheme… people are so concerned with punchlines and swag that its disgusting.

    The Natural is dope, but Hunger For More is a very GOOD album that has aged very well. I understand what your saying, though. Music has become disposable, and it never used to be like that.

    I subdue the microphone and left it in submission
    then cracked the Phillie open

    Not a job, but definitely a culture. Being culturally aware means exactly what Goldberg is talking about. Rap has become disposable and entertainment value has overshadowed talent and authenticity.

    JihaD

    So by culture you mean not just hip hop music then ? ‘Cause I don’t give a fuck about no break dancing.

    Hip Hop is entertainment, now. Music is entertainment. Jay Z calls himself an “entertainer”. I’m a hip hop fan, but I don’t have to live hip hop because I’m not a hip hop artist. Just like I don’t have to live basketball, but I’m a basketball fan.

    So that means you like Rap music then– the entertainment aspect as you will. Thats fine, but there is a difference. I don’t know how to break dance or DJ, but I appreciate their place in my culture. I understand graffiti and raps place in that same culture. I understand the difference in lexicon, slang, word codification, and terminology. I grew up with that shit. The dress, the attitiude. Thats Hip-Hop. You don’t have to like it or be a part of it– you can just like Rap. I listen to heavy metal and alternative music, but I ain’t a rocker, ya dig?

    difficult to explain…

    the show revolves around white men of the 50s- early 60s….what i notice is over the seasons is the show makes an emphasis on cultural references of those times and that people back then had marriage issues, women in the workplace, teenagers sex, racism, of course. Great acting, smart writing, you gotta see it for yourself to decide if your going to like it or not.
