It's so...90s though. I mean, it's good, but in a very dated sort of way. I can pinpoint precisely was era it came from without thinking about it. In contrast, Big L, OC and early Ghostface sound like any number of underground LPs being released today. I would say that sound was more enduring and influential than most west coast, even though radio stations still play the shit out of California Love and Gin & Juice.

The beat from Big Poppa is straight up 90s west coast.

One thing I can say - Ready to Die is not a driving album. Played a few tracks on my comp and enjoyed it more.

Maybe if you're driving a LADA pumping the thing out of an 8 track, sure.

Play that baby in a sports/otherwise snazzy ride with a nice system out on a nice open stretch, and it's definitely a driving album.

Not to mention there aren't many clubs or crowds you can pull up to while bumpin One More Chance, Juicy, Big Poppa, to name a few, where heads will not turn. Pretty heads. Heads that you want in the passenger seat while you crank that shit to 11. Hell yeah.

Also, the beat/music from Big Poppa is the Isley Brother's Between The Sheets (1983). Classic classic track. They're from Ohio by birth and during their careers New York/New Jersey. To be fair I think a couple west coast artists did sample it probably in the mid to late 90s, but the majority of artists who've used it are from the east coast scene. Juicy is Juicy Fruit, by Mtume who was as east coast as they come.

Holy shit. You weren't kidding. That's straight up blatant too, not just a worked-in sample. I feel so goddam (and depressingly) ignorant sometimes.



this - is a fucking stellar hip-hop tune.

GZA feat. Killah Priest - B.I.B.L.E. (Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth) + Lyrics - YouTube

fucking blows my mind. i'm still warming up to Liquid Swords. Swordsman still by far my favourite tune from the album, but 4th Chamber (killer verse from RZA) and Shadowboxin are great too. Not really a bad song, just a pretty inaccessible album, i find.

the very first martial arts soundbite is creepy as fuck... but it doesn't fucking work at all into Liquid Swords.

Not exactly: 2005. Mixing rock with rap is an inherently old school thing to do, I suppose.

Madvillainy just gets more and more rad. I've heard it so many times that it's like an old friend who always comes up with something profound to say when we meet, only they're really twitchy and fucked up so I never see it coming.

I've just got to deal with the fact that Madlib is one of my favorite people, in general.

If you like jazz and De La Soul (specifically De La Soul Is Dead), have I got the band for you:



Innercity Griots is siiiick.

HYPEHYPEHYPE

Undun Reviews, Ratings, Credits, and More at Metacritic

Completely forgot this was about to come out. HipHopDX gave it a perfect 5/5, which is rare for them.

 
Debatable if Jimmy Fallon's band is purist shit or not.

Fuck, I've got so many fucking albums from this year to hear help me out, any hip-hop albums aside from the obvious (ie ones I've mentioned) that have stuck with you from this year?

I don't know that I could recommend the entire album, as it's vaguely irritating, but this song is badass as hell:

I really like De La's penchant for humour. Afro Connections at a Hi-5 is hilarious.
