(Also I agree 10 day is better than acid rap whoever said that in the last thread)

Yeah that was me. I think it's somehow more uneven but the standout tracks are better imo.

Also there's a whole bunch of these dudes popping up in Chicago now. Alex Wiley had a mixtape earlier, as did Hurt Everybody and a couple others I can't remember now that I picked up tapes for. It kinda reminds me of the project blowed stuff that popped up in the 90's during LA's big gangsta rap phase (although less organized obv).


Lots of dudes don't mind talking about old stuff (and the last album you really talk about is almost 20 years old which is like ancient in rap) but some goofy recap isn't really adding anything or w/e especially when half of what you wrote was wrong. Like your whole post came off like a pitchfork profile circa 2003. Also I think it's a good assumption that people here are familiar with Wu. Since your postcount wasn't negative (which fwiw is the first thing I check when I suspect a troll post) I assume you're somewhat being sincere so why not actually talk about why you think they're still relevant to rap, or why you think people should listen to them, or anything else.

Aside from that Big Sean track, I'm really liking the new Common album. I like the really gritty, raw production style on it; it feels like the album I was hoping I would get from The Roots this year.

Ja Rule is straight up rear end. Murder Inc. fell off harder than Christopher Reeves, and of course he blames 50 Cent for that. He claims in his new book that 50 Cent worked with the police to shut him and his affiliates down.

His only song I care for is "I'm real," lets be real though, J Lo could have subbed Ja Rule out with any other rapper and it would have been just as big of a hit.

I also don't know why anyone would want to beef with 50 in the early 2000s, dude was merciless. The only dude that got at him was Jadakiss (Checkmate is probably top 5 diss tracks ever).

RiFF RAFF working hard, already releasing a new(?) track with a video.

I feel like he's actually getting better at spitting completely nonsense verses.

I started off kind of ironically listening to RiFF RAFF and laughing at him, but now I kind of feel like he is objectively good at both satirizing and making good-sounding, vacant luxury rap simultaneously. I think his most accessible was Hologram Panda... there are some actually really good and coherent songs on there. The funny part about him is he seems to completely dork his chances of coming up in the worst ways possible. He had a song with Wiz Khalifa and he spit the laziest freestyle I've ever heard, but then he has some song with Dolla Bill Gates or Ghetty or whoever and absolutely murders it.

He's supposed to have a song with Katy Perry coming out soon. RiFF will be on the radio soon. Amazing.

YG - Bicken Back Bein Bool

Beter biper bicked ba batch bof bickled beppers. YG just dropped this video and its pretty.. krazy. Some San Andreas in real life type of poo poo.

Didn't Compton go bankrupt? Rappers are quick to defend themselves and claim merely to provide social commentary, rather than glorify and advertise thug/trap living. I wonder if YG gives back to his neighborhood/city. He sure loves to rap about where he's from, but he seems like the type of dude to waste all of his money on strippers and gambling. Seems a little exploitive. In Miami, all of the big name MMG/YMCMB rappers get g checked by old heads for not giving back to the city they claim until they buckle and do so.

We talked about it a good bit when it leaked a few weeks ago (it is in the old thread). The leak was low quality
So i hadnt given it a serious listen until now. It is kinda me/underwhelming so far, especially compared to Black Up.

If the city is going bankrupt no one person is going to fix that. As far as the rest people who (claim) to exploit their community as a means of making money don't seem like the first people to build community centers.
