Unfortunately, Kanye and A$AP are the only hip hop albums I've heard this year. Not super big on either of them, though the former is leaps and bounds better than the latter.

Am I the only one that dug 12 Reasons to Die by Ghostface? Not one of the year's marquee releases, but I found it quite enjoyable.

I forgot about that one. I listened to it once and it was pretty enjoyable but I haven't gone back to it.

Top 5 and >>>>>>> Long Live A$ap for me.

LLA was a big disappointment, I really loved the cloud rap aspects of his debut and that hazy feel was completely gone.

He's great live, better than your usual hip-hop artist. Played about 90% of Liquid Swords. I think I saw on Twitter that he's playing with a band too, which I'm jealous about.

See if you can get him to sign your shoe, like he did mine.

^The production has been stuck in my head all day after only one listen, and I just read Busta self-produced it. Q-Tip's flow on it makes my balls tingle.

RZA on the stalled Wu reunion album

Quote:
And one of the guys who showed up the most was Method Man. He showed the most tenacity, he was the most vocal, he showed up the most, and he got the most lyrics on the new album. He's already recorded eight or nine songs. He’s been on it. You know, I give Cappadonna credit, he’s been really on it. U-God has been present. Masta Killa be representing. Inspectah Deck has been somewhat present. Ghost has been, you know, 20 percent present. And Raekwon hasn't shown up at all. When you look at somebody like Masta Killa and U-God, they seem to have that original hunger to complete the legacy. I respect that everybody [is] busy with they own lives. I started with a plan that I thought would work. Now maybe my plan not working.

I got optimism off the summer tour we did in Europe. It was so healthy. We got a lot of time on the bus to talk, to argue, to laugh, to hug, to see fans loving us. And to see the potential of what we can do. To see the potential of the legacy of what we did. We got a lot of work done [recording in Europe]. I feel like we have enough material on the album. I just need Raekwon to come onboard fully. I need some more energy from Ghost and GZA. If they give that energy, I will give us a great last album. If they don't give us the energy, I gotta figure out a plan B.
A RZA-hemmed Wu album featuring mostly himself, Meth, Cappadonna, U-God and Masta Killa. Hmm. Really only one of that five is a brilliant rapper, although Masta Killa can die knowing he has one of the greatest hip-hop tracks ever (B.I.B.L.E.)

The only album with better production from RZA than 36 Chambers is 6 Feet Deep. He's really on his game when he's striking terror into listeners. Those are some creepy-ass albums.

Whose album is that?

I'd argue Liquid Swords has the best production from what I've heard, even better than 36 Chambers. I can nearly feel the cold when I play Cold World.
