If you got so much cheese where are the black distributors
And these record companies shake em down like mobsters
But impostors, like commercial locks are not rastas
Always faking moves, never, making moves
...Still, brothers leave brothers all battered and bruised

Something about it just comes off as meh. I'll probably give it a better chance later, but every time I've listened to it nothing seems to grab my attention. Dude's flow is just "functional" and the production seemed really uneven. I'd hear a couple things I liked, then it's like they'd drop those threads entirely or something idk. That (and Goldlink) will definitely get a better listen later but they didn't grab me like the other stuff I named.

Tin Wooki is also a good album this year but maybe a bit long. Also

I get if you don't like dude or w/e but you're writing off what's easily gonna be a top 5 rap album this year. Dude's production has really taken off, and he's always at least interesting lyrically.

If Milo's upcoming album is any good Hellfyre Club will have the year TDE was supposed to.

I dont really hear it on the first verse and the second verse all I really notice is the "life's a bitch with no pre NUP" which sounds like a meh Kanye line that everyone pretends is really good. I probably wouldn't really even make the connection if you guys didn't bring it up. That said though I'm really interested to see what happens with Rocky's career. He went from a huge buzz to kind of disappearing. Even if he's not better I still think he has way bigger mainstream potential than Kendrick, possibly even at a Drake level.

I made a prophesy about Rocky. The stars are aligning for his falling-off. The whole thing was Gucci and Chef Keef would continue to go back to jail and gently caress up their careers. Then it was Schoolboy Q and Rocky were going to brick up after a while. What started it all was Trinidad James getting signed.

LOL!

Dude's definitely an acquired taste, but his album's genuinely good. Like I like Sage a lot as well and his album this year was solid, but even this year I didn't think "this is top 5" or w/e. So it's not just my bias, even though I fully admit a bunch of dudes probably won't be into it at all (especially in this thread where tastes tend to run to different stuff)

As for busdriver stuff, I'm at work so can't post vids just yet (maybe I'll replace them later) but here's some of my fav of his songs:

opposable thumbs
lefty's lament
sun shower
Split Seconds
quebec and back
sorry fuckers
beaus & eros
scattered ashes

Also I'll be the first to admit dude's stuff can be corny at times.

Rocky was never that good, he just was the most "safe" of the dudes in that lane. It's a bit early to say he fell off, but yeah his momentum's died a ton (and I don't think he can get anywhere near as big as Kendrick or especially Drake, Ferg has more potential than Rocky)

Q seemed to try too hard to get famous and his album suffered. Or so I hope, I'd rather that he's still the dude who made habits & contradictions than ras kass pt. 2. It's like he saw Kendrick taking off, and rather than stay in his lane being a smart/gangsta/party/weirdo and let folks naturally take to his style, he tried too quick to make pop poo poo and failed. It's especially unfortunate since Kendrick's essentially been able to stay himself and get famous-O.D. was a way more "pop" album than gkmc.

I was definitely reaching with the Drake comparison but I still do think if he linked up with the right people and really figured out where to push himself musically he could be at the Kendrick level, definitely not skill wise but album sales, public image, radio hits. He's got all the intangibles. And he's got way more potential than Ferg, Ferg's never gonna pinch Rihanna's rear end in his life without getting slapped. Kendrick's mainstream success and appeal is weird to me though, I can't wait to see what his next album is like and where his career goes.

I agree and I think that ASAP Rocky is dope, and he brings a refreshing blend of style and New York/South fusion that comes out awesome production wise most times. I've seen him twice live and the energy is undeniable. I'm also biased since I grew up on NYC (being from NY and now living in Jersey) dudes that exude that aura of "I don't give a gently caress, I'm gonna do me" which has almost totally vanished from hip hop today.

ASAP Rocky's problem is that 99% of the dudes in ASAP mob are loving trash. Ferg has some redeeming qualities but he isn't really a great rapper, his delivery plus bravado makes for some entertaining music though. He's loyal to all of his boys and I respect that but he won't be able to go far trying to let them all eat along with him. He is far and above the rest of them as far as career and raw talent and it's only going to hold him back branding anything but his solo career.

As he gets older and more humble I hope he realizes he has to focus on his own brand, and hopefully he keeps honing his craft and stays hungry. It's not easy to stay relevant in rap without constant material being dropped, and even harder to sustain getting paid.

There's a video of Rocky and Snoop hanging out and Snoop told him that very thing, make sure you eat first before your boys, when you make it to the top then you can reach down for them.

Rocky don't do his own production.

And his problem isn't ASAP Mob (although I do agree that most of them are trash), it's that he's all style and whatever. There's nothing in his actual music to hook people, so when he's not trendy anymore it's not likely he can stick around. He's like a new version of Kriss Kross or something.

And the reason I said Ferg has more potential is on top of having charisma and whatever, dude's actually got a recognizable musical style that makes him stand out compared to other dudes. Rocky's essentially anonymous on tracks where production isn't doing gymnastics to make him sound different.
