I've soured on dude a lot but I don't blame him for LASERS at all. He was forced by his label to work with whoever they picked for him if he wanted to get out of his contract and I know around the time he released it pretty much all his interviews he said he didn't like the album at all.
i've heard conflicting reports about the whole LASERS situation but yeah most of it probably wasn't his fault. i remember hearing that originally that b.o.b airplanes song was meant for him or somethin

ehh, i think the lyric stuff is a bit harsh-he's definitely gotten a lot more preachy but when he's on his game I think he can still make "conscious" stuff that sounds good.

although until he's had a string of garbage i'll never count out the dude who made SLR...
i guess i soured on him when food & liquor 2 ended up being merely okay instead of the great comeback album i thought it was going to be (remember how it was going to be a two parter? lmao). i agree that he can still make some good "conscious" songs but god drat stuff like bitch bad is so loving preachy it drives me crazy

a friend is trying to get me to listen to Pro Era and its members, she reckons they are really good. Never really listened to them enough to know. I know I like Steez but only listened to some of his stuff after the fact, so I don't know any of the poo poo he was also on. What do you guys think was the best thing Pro Era put out so I can give it a listen and finally do as my friend asks and give them a chance?

I got her to listen to the Underachievers and Flatbush Zombies after a little pressure, so I feel it is only right to listen to stuff she reckons I would like. She says they are similar.

don't ever hear any of them mentioned in here, so I never figured them worth a look before really. listening to The Shift now regardless and it is alright, nothing too special tho

There's not really all that much out from them. I like Rejex probably the best (Joey's second tape) but most people probably say 1999 is the best thing they've put out. I'd start there, and with the aprocalypse mixtape that's the group comp. If none of that grabs you chances are you won't really like them.

Biggest reason you don't hear much about them around here (outside of when something new comes out, there's usually a little talk then) is that for the few people here who would actually appreciate that style and aesthetic there's dudes who are pulling off the same stuff, but in general better. The thing I liked most about Joey's stuff was that there's a...naivete there compared to a lot of rap (especially compared to stuff he's influenced by). But that's not really enough to hold attention imo, and he's not really done enough to differentiate himself from the other similar dudes (not to mention his influences)-If you're not particularly familiar with his stuff you essentially can't tell the difference between him, Bishop Nehru, and Astro.

Contrast this with the dudes you named (or Doppelgangaz, for another take) who are actually taking that stuff in new directions so they're actually out of the shadow of the 90's acts they're trying to sound like.

They're essentially like any number of generic good-rapping 90's dudes so there's nothing really to make them stand out past the initial listen-they lack personality or something. Now with that said, I'll still be checking Joey's upcoming album, and pretty much all the Pro Era dudes can rap so it's not like they're garbage. The original production they get also shows a lot of talent, it's just a matter if they'll become dudes who are more than a 90's NY cover band.
