When I think of hip hop "purists", I think of people who post on U2 fan forums.

By "pure" they mean "white," and by "hip-hop" they mean "not hip-hop."

maybe if he'd used "legends" instead of "purists" it would be better.

Also, let me know if Dr. Lecter is any good. Seemed cool, but you can only listen to so much.
I haven't, though rest assured I absolutely will. Will report back on Dr Lecter too. Just downloaded Oneirology.

Hadn't heard anything by DJ Quik, but I listened to his Book of David record today. Pretty alright; predictably great beats from a DJ's album, but lacking strong rhymes or flow. It was OK in that regard, but overly materialistic and misanthropic. I enjoyed the record because, yeah, I do primarily listen to hip-hop for the beats, but I felt it could have been better.

This instrumental hidden track sums up the highlights of the album nicely:

Oh wow, Weekend At Burnie's is fuckyeah. Great flow, deep, funky beats, solid lyrics, taut runtime...damn, it's got it all. Curren$y is going to be one of my favorite hip-hop artists shortly, I believe.

Is this the first you'd heard from him, Travis?

Yeah, pretty much, at least a couple a year on average. His two Pilot Talk albums are my favorites, along with the collab he did with Wiz Khalifa called How Fly, which was recorded before Wiz lost the little lyrical appeal he had.

Funny how losing lyrical appeal seems to be the key to success these days.

edit. actually that's not funny at all.

Listened to Tical 0: The Prequel today. It's nothing more than okay. Mate is a big fan of Meth and lent it to me. Would have preferred it was Tical, which I haven't heard but read is very good. My mates don't understand that you can't grab any old album when shopping for music by an artist you're getting into.

Or maybe I'm to methodical.

Finally listening to Idlewild, for completion's sake. The first four or so minutes have been 80% hater rap. Defensiveness is seldom a good thing.

Nice to hear Andre rapping, however infrequently.

What was your final opinion? I think there's probably enough material for a pretty decent EP, but that's it.

Yeah, there's like 6 kickass songs there and the rest was Andre trying his best to shove his head up his own ass, to no avail.

That being said, Big Boi was on the ball, and I really like the genre they chose to rape, so I had fun.
