Killer Mike has clearly been listening to shitty early 80s hardcore for inspiration. Who knew?

The first time I heard it I probably did LOL. When he started saying Ronald Wilson Reagan at the end I thought "WAIT, is he gonna invoke the Number of the Beast? And then BLAMMO, that shit happened.

Blackstar (Mos Def & Talib Kweli) - Definition - YouTube

There aren't enough MCs out there who can flow like Talib these days.

There's such great variety here. Beats like this one go hard:

Nas - The Don (Explicit) - YouTube

But this jazzy number here is gorgeous:

Nas - Stay - YouTube

And right here is the pop jam of the summer:

Nas - You Wouldn't Understand ft. Victoria Monet - YouTube

Life is Good is pretty sweet. Not sure I love it as much as others straight up, but it's definitely good.

Stay is my favourite by miles. Heart-wrenchingly gorgeous.

Summer on Smash is horrendous.

Nas, the modern-day technology storyteller:

Quote:
This morning I got a call, nearly split my wig
This social network said Nas go and get your kid
She's on Twitter, I know she ain't gon post no pic
Of herself underdressed, no inappropriate shit, right
Her mother cried when she answered
Said she don't know what got inside this child's mind, she planted
A box of condoms on her dresser then she Instagrammed it

He opened for GZA when I saw him and was extremely good. Simon Says was ridiculous. The crowd was going that nuts I'd actually moved about 10 metres forward and closer to the centre by the time the song and moshing were over.

Dude is underrated.

Flying Lotus spun Simon Says when I saw him and I knew I had to hear Internal Affairs. This album is nuts.

Liquid Swords got a 10 and best new reissue from p4k today.

Very pleasing. The writer hits on a lot of the thoughts I have about the album. The lyricism and the rhymes are just sublime. They blow me away with every single listen. And the production is phenomenal. RZA genuinely creates an atmosphere. Whenever I listen to Cold World I feel like I need to but a thick jumper on.

My hip-hop Rushmore, as it currently stands:

1. Outkast - Aquemini
Has everything that I love about Outkast - funk, aggression, deep lyrics, fun, effortless vocals, astounding, varying production, much more - all rolled into one package. As good as Southernplayalistic, ATLiens and Stankonia are, this is the one I come back to most often. It has everything.

2. Wu-Tang Clan - Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)
Probably the best rap album I’ve ever heard. RZA gets a lot of credit for his production, and rightly so, but his style is more laying down good beats and then getting the fuck out of the way to let the rapping shine through. Protect Ya Neck is the best hip-hop track of all time, no contest.

3. Nas - Illmatic
An absolute mastercraft. Not much longer than 40 minutes, no skits to be heard of, just a hungry young rapper trying to make sense of the fucked-up world around him. Sure, Jay-Z has gone on to be more successful, but as much as he dissed Nas (and as good as The Blueprint and Reasonable Doubt are), even he had to admit this is a touchstone of the genre. Unwitable.

4. GZA - Swordsman
GZA is now my favourite member of the clan, and all the reasons why are laid out here. The dude’s lyrics are incredibly potent, and whilst his style doesn’t immediately hit you like Ghostface Killah or Ol’ Dirty Bastard, it will get under your skin. It’s death by a thousand cuts. Swordsman might be one of the most underrated tracks ever.

Albums. Thought I'd step outside the Rushmore conventions.
