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:



Interstellar Overdrive sample FTW, it's one of the best rap/rock moments I've heard in a long time. Rick Rubin would be proud.

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

As time goes on I'm finding it harder and harder to convince myself that I like Sir Lucious more than more than MBDTF. I've come back to the latter more often, even if the former's a lot easier to get through. Ughhh

Big Boi's record is dope as hell, but I think anyone throwing MBDTF under the bus will look pretty silly decades down the road. This may be reactionary, but I don't think there has been a more significant hip-hop album than MBDTF in a long time, maybe going as far back as Blueprint. It did not necessarily innovate to the degree that it sounds radically unlike everyone else, or even Kanye's previous work, but it united everyone. Can you name me a mainstream album that received more unanimous critical praise in the last decade? Just look at metacritic. It won the Pazz & Jop critics poll by the widest margin in its history, and that's going back to the early 70s.

And by mainstream album, I really do mean mainstream: platinum sales and two big time singles. Even sites like MTV.com ran to its defense when the Grammys snubbed it. Can't exactly call it underground or accuse it of not being influential: within the hip-hop community...the way others talked about it...it was the prevailing example of upping your game within the industry. It's the closest thing they had to Brian Wilson dropping Pet Sounds and leaving minds everywhere completely fucked. Love it or hate it (and I'm not judging the album subjectively here; I'm going by the closest thing I have to observable facts), it's clear that Kanye created something really memorable with MBDTF. So yeah, I mean, I think most of us can agree it's a significant work, and the album isn't so ludicrously overproduced that it will sound like hell decades from now. If anything, such a ridiculously dense record should keep on growing. But hey, maybe I'm the only one who still believes albums can BE significant at this point in music history.

A modern classic, for sure. Hell of an album. And the Grammy snub is fucking baffling.

But really, when is the last time the Grammy's were truly relevant anyway?

Of course, they don't mean all that much. Everyone knows that. It's an awards show. But, still, very surprising that it wasn't nominated.

So I have read in a few places that this Shabazz Palaces album will make believers even out of those who do not usually gravitate toward Hip-Hop. Is there any truth in this?

I haven't heard it yet, plan to. Raekwon has a new mixtape out too, gonna listen to that in the coming days.

In the meantime though...

When a motherfucker steps out his place
And gets slapped in his motherfuckin face
Just because the motherfucker tried to base
The G.O.D., the G.O.D.

And while I see his whole clique passes by
Motherfuckers think they qualify
And for those niggaz want to try
The G.O.D., the G.O.D.

Yo
I'm not caught up in politics
I'm no black activist on a so-called scholar's dick
I come through with the Wu and drop math
And versatile freestyles bombs and phonographs
and deliver, all things and other in weight
searched to death, on how living things relate
Cause at a young age, I was molded in a religion I relied on
and got caught up in superstition
Scared to split pole, duck black cats
Once in a while, threw salt over my back
But with knowledge of self remove the shell
Made things seemed complicated now small like elves
So turn off the lights light a candle, have a seance
Pull the lid off the Dean Martin scandal
Witches, warlocks, spooks, and holy ghosts
RZA lets defraud the hoax

When a motherfucker steps out his place
And gets slapped in his goddamn face
Just because the nigga buddy tried to base
The G.O.D., the G.O.D.

And while I see his whole clique passes by
Motherfuckers think they qualify
And for those niggaz want to try
The G.O.D., the G.O.D.

We were on the same ship when the slaves were checked
I had to pull your card you was on the top deck
So I plotted my escape, I saw the Thin Line Between Love and Hate
And fast from the hog on the plate
I suffered brutal pains, from whips and chains
Punishments that were set to wash the brain
So look listen observe and also respect this jewel
drawed up, detect and reflect this
light I shine, because my power is refined
through the truth, which manifest through eternal minds
Purified gases and masses the same elements
that helped spark civilization classes
I see brothers quote math plus degrees
Lip professin' ass niggaz can't feed they own seeds

When a nigga steps out his place
And gets slapped in his motherfuckin face
Just because the nigga what he tried to base
Wit' G.O.D., wit' G.O.D.

While I see his whole clique passes by
Motherfuckers think they qualify
And for those niggaz want to try
The G.O.D., the G.O.D.


I mean, fuck. Every time I hear this song I feel like I've gone 10 rounds with Ali. Phenomenal.
