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.

No, just Diary of a Madman, which is insane. It's hard to imagine Prince Paul doing horrorcore when 99% of the shit you've heard from him is De La Soul's first two albums.

The amount of talent behind the boards for that record is astonishing. No wonder it's a clinic in hip hop production.

I think I'll listen to Liquid Swords later.

I see it was meant to be called Niggamortis. What a fucking awesome name.

I must apologise to Killah Priest, it's he that raps on the stellar B.I.B.L.E., not Masta Killa.

Possibly the best summation of U-God's rap career.

is 10 today.

I always toss up between this and Blueprint as my fav Jay-Z album (though I still haven't listened to Reasonable Doubt, despite owning it for years).

I was also thinking today... who do you prefer? Kanye or Jay-Z? Comparing their discographies, I'd have to say Kanye... even if Jay-Z's best raps are better than Yeezy's.

Ridiculous. It's better than either Blueprint or Black Album.

Kanye easily has the more consistent discography and, with College Dropout, Late Registration and MBDTF, just as many great records.
