I've been slack as fuck on hip-hop this year. Gotta lift my game.
I like Picasso Baby and On The Run like I mentioned, and Holy Grail is a good song (although I may like Justin Timberlake's portion of the song more so than the Jay-Z portion). Oceans and Tom Ford are good ones as well, but again Oceans could be better more so because of Frank Ocean. La Familia and the song with Rick Ross are total crap though, I think overall it's his best (other than Watch the Throne but that's again all because of Kanye) album since The Black Album, although that's not saying too much.

Don't get me wrong, I don't think this is a masterpiece, I just expected a steaming pile of horse manure and was pleasantly surprised.

I will say something though that should elicit some discussion: I hated Good Kid m.A.A.d City, listened to it twice all the way through and couldn't stand it, I took it off my iTunes playlist immediately at that point. I read an article that said it was as good as Illmatic the other day and almost threw up in my mouth. Illmatic is not only the best hip hop album of all time, it's one of the best period (I put it in the Dark Side of the Moon/Led Zeppelin IV/Abbey Road sort of class). I was honestly floored when I read that from a professional music critic.

Yeah I've seen some of my posts around from back when I was active, man I could really be a shit head at times. It's like they're written by a completely different person.

I think looking back that what I was most concerned about was that the thread would degenerate into nothing but chatter about the latest Soulja Boy single or the merits of crunk or something rather than a discussion about the kind of hip hop I wanted to talk about. Still, what a pretentious little fuck I could be.

Ahh I miss Mia so much, even when seeing new pictures of her cute dog on FB.

I miss Mia so much that I'm willing to ignore DaveC's opinion on one of the best albums of the past five years so I can just think about how rad Mia is instead.

Hey Gabe, good to see you're still around buddy. I'm in Toronto now, working for a bank. Been out of the army since January 2012 when my contract came up.

What's new?

That is great, but I'd truly like to know why you didn't like good kid m.A.A.d city. Not being snarky. I'm surprised that it was a shock to you that critics compared it to Illmatic. I think it was a fair comparison... it was Kendrick's major breakthrough, and it features some really outstanding lyrics about life, much like Illmatic did. Illmatic's better, but good kid m.A.A.d city was excellent in its own right, and it was critically acclaimed as well as commercially successful, so I'm interested to know what about it turned you off so much.

I honestly can't speak to specifics. I heard it last months ago, and I admittedly only listened to it twice as I mentioned. I do remember not really being a fan of his style, and none of the beats I heard really got me excited. Both times though I wasn't able to focus on the lyrics (I once had it on while I was cleaning the house) so in fairness I'd be willing to give it another shot if that's really the strong point of the album.
