One of my favorite rap related videos ever, if you haven't seen this watch it. Young 50 was a force:

For anyone who thinks Yayo sucks (he kind of does not but whatever) he has a bunch of really good material on the old G-Unit tapes. GOAT hypeman

You made it a hot loop, I made it a hot song"

you're right! all the stuff being released under his name are cobbled together scraps from the last few years when he wasn't in jail or hosed up out of his mind. i swear someone posted an article showing how his mixtapes are being made by a bunch of dudes with no involvement from him anymore by just grabbing whatever random verses they can and throwing them together. dude's essentially lil b at this point with worse quality control.

How rock hard do you get when you get to hate on Gucci? I'm pretty sure the article said he talks to these guys every day to work on putting these mixtapes together. If you listened to the songs it's pretty obvious they aren't just taking random verses and putting them together on the same song.

There's a bunch of songs on trap house 4 that have multiple verses that are clearly from the same recording session and meant to go together...unless you think he just used same flow and same specific topic on random recordings they're putting together. I don't really hear anything on TH4 that sounds like that, but his other stuff with tons of features I guess

Less antagonism - more construction: I recently picked up a copy of DJ Scott La Rock's Man & His Music and it kills. I love B.D.P., but this might be my favorite record by them.

freddie gibbs is coming here too but he has like 4 trash openers and i dont really feel like sitting though all that

If you're close just show up 30 minutes or an hour before he goes on. If you can't find out what time he's supposed to go in find out when the place closed and go two hours before that. I've done it got a bunch of shows but I lived a block away from the venue so we could pregame or whatver until we wanted without worrying. Worked out more often than not

I like this song but "channeling" is putting it mildly... Rocky straight up copies Kanye's whole style on both verses.

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.

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.

Rocky was an upsale of Lil B. Now that basegod's star has dimmed, Rocky doesn't have an audience. It was pretty shrewd how someone capitalized off the the swag trend like that and I hope RCA or Sony bought them a boat that year.

SchoolboyQ has "it" but he is stuck on the westcoast. He could be like 2Chainz and have a 2nd career if he ever leaves TDE.

Kendrick's success isn't weird IMO but it is impressive that he could pull of being the "deep but relatable" westcoast Nas thing. Many have tried.

Rocky has "it" as much as any rapper out right now. His audience is people who like his good songs? I get what you're saying with the swag stuff but calling him a rich mans Lil B is retarded.

Schoolboys career is way bigger than 2 Chainz's was as Tity Boi. He'll be fine he just released a pretty mediocre album. I don't know if it's a good indicator but his song Studio is on the Sirius stations at least 30 times a day. And he's doing sold out shows around the country/world. He doesn't need TDE at all though. I don't need TDE at all though either

And that's pretty much what I meant by Kendrick's success being weird. He's pretty much the only rapper in his lane and doesn't really have any direct competitors I feel.
