Is it wrong that I not only don't find her Em cover horrible, but I actually like her more for it?   Honestly never gave her much thought before, but she's now somehow way hotter.   <object st

Whoa, MTV still puts out UnPlugged shows apparently. And apparently they have nothing to do w/ acoustic sets anymore...   <div style="background-color:#000000;width:520px;"><div style="padd

Huh. I think "King" Hammer sounds like a very confused man.

 

Not sure if I'm on board the Danny Brown joint either.

 

But what I am feeling is the new Lil' Wayne album. Not the greatest hip-hop album ever, or even from the past year (that goes to Em for Recovery in my book), but it's still pretty fuckin' awesome. NZA should like this one especially since Weezy is tight on the rhymes.

the danny brown one...i just love J Dilla, and production that sounds like him works for me cause i miss the dude. he was amazing, so sad he's gone.

 

Lil Wayne...i clown the dude (his style works for me sometimes, sometimes it don't - he can rhyme but i think he gets lazy on the lyrics sometimes), but he at least sounds different from a lotta garbage out right now. he's prolly my next 50 Cent: a few years from now, he won't be all over the radio, he'll have a video game and ill end up digging him more.

 

me, im gonna check out budden's mixtape 4 and some dudes like Jay Electronica:

RZA/Rae/other dude's new single - solid effort, good track.

Jay Electronica ft. Tone Treasure – Jazzmatazz

 

Diddy's still crying over losing this guy, and still called him the breakout artist of 2010 despite not even getting a fuckin' mixtape out.

based on the singles like this we've heard/leaked, i gotta say: if he can get it together for ROC and put something out there, i think he could be huge; dude's style is good and he flows some heavy content a bit like Rakim did. J Cole's getting more notice in hip-hop (prolly for putting in more work?) but this is the artist to watch, for me.

akon still bores me, dre still produces like it's '03, snoop's still not trying...but it's a fun track.

 

i'm going through my backlog & will have some good underground shit to post, hopefully soon.

Good shit. Dre is back. As far as the supporters, I agree with Nick. Still its a promising first release for an album that's sure to be great. Surprised Nate Dogg didn't get mentioned. He's clearly doing back-up vocals.

fuck, i'm so used to Nate's vocals with Dre's stuff i forgot to mention them :LOL: love that dude, though.

 

seriously going out of my way to not talk about Detox though, Dre's been trolling the industry hinting at that shit dropping for years now, and it just reopens high school wounds of wanting for the Dre/Cue Helter Skelter album that never came. :???:

 

50 Cent: still a clown.

Kanye West - christmas in harlem

 

but even better:

 

Ghostface Killah f. Raekwon, Method Man & Redman's "Troublemakers"

Ghostface Killah Ft. Joel Ortiz & Game - Drama (game owns this track)

all off:

 

Ghostface Killah, Apollo Kids

 

Official release date: December 21, 2010

 

The verdict: On the face of it, Apollo Kids — Ghostface Killah's ninth studio album and his eighth in the last ten years — looks like a contractually obligated mail-in: questionable cover art, no lead single, nonexistent promotion, a relatively scant run time, and a whole grip of guest rappers helping to minimize Ghost's overall workload. This, of course, is a drag. Other than last year's R&B experiment Ghostdini: Wizard of Poetry in Emerald City and the odds-and-ends collection More Fish, every one of Ghost's albums deserves a place in the responsible hip-hop fan's music library, and the thought that the dude has stopped trying as hard as he always previously had does not engender warm feelings. But the situation, it turns out, is not all that serious.

 

And that's because, as always, Ghostface still really can't open his mouth without saying something entertaining. This is the early front-runner for favorite line-chunk: "Got bitches in mi casa boiling fresh lobsters / But I don't do the shellfish, Im'ma just eat pasta / turkey, Italian sausage, chopped-up kielbasa / doing hits from home like an elite mobster / love my onions diced up real little." Elsewhere: effective-to-inspired soul-sampling beats; ad-libs in which Ghostface makes fun of people's clothing; a snippet or two of Tears for Fears' "Shout"; and the Game using the phrase "I get my Rachael Ray on." It won't rank up there with his best, yeah, but Ghost would need to try much harder than this to make a crappy album.

 

dropping tuesday! :bananaman: bonus: Ghostface's commercial for Dove -

finally went back to given this a proper listen the whole way through...damn, very few misses here. this is my favorite Roots album since at least Tipping Point, if not Phrenology. do not miss, if you're a fan.

 

61wAX%2BRROlL._SS500_.jpg

 

this shit goes hard, like Supreme Clientele in the day. i totally forgive starks for Ghostdini last year, and if you're looking for the next strong Wu effort after Rae's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx II, this is it. do not sleep. i haven't even finished it yet cause i keep looping a few tracks.

 

2lj6b9w.jpg

 

Liquid Swords 2 is like my own Chinese Democracy, i really hope it drops & delivers next year...but in the meantime, this collection of b-sides & such is a really great holdover. I personally can't get enough GZA, and Muggs did it justice, some DJ Premier sounding tracks here off & on.

 

if 2011 is for hip-hop what 2010 was, i'm gonna feel spoiled.

I never really got into Kno (Cunninglynguist) before, but if loreli or anyone else that can get behind a conceptual album is down...what ive heard so far is solid, vaguely Gravediggaz type stuff. also, the art for the next project is equally good:

 

c7meZ.jpg

 

anyway, was reading that Ghosface was finally done with Def Jam (been waiting on this, like every producer wants to get with him and its obvious he had some better help on Apollo Kids but it's still not consistent), but apparently he signed back on for a few more efforts, which are rumored to be named "Supreme Clientele 2" and "Blue & Cream".

I'll listen to that Black Keys/Big Boi mash-up, Nick, as soon as I'm done running virus check on my PC after the website you linked bombed my browser w/ pop-ups. Cheers.

 

The Crunkmas video was funny though. Was that SNL's Keenan Thompson in there at the end as Lil Wayne? Me thinks so.

Firefox. That page crashed the browser. First time that's happened to me since I started running the fox in ages. All good though. Anyway, I likewise thought of you first when I saw that Lauryn Hill tour news. Does this mean we're gay in anyway? Can we get Jumbie or Jay or another gay Hondonian in here for a ruling or something?
