Apparently that Martin Shrekli or whatever his name is, has to sell that Once Upon a Time in Shaolin album. Would love for the Wu to win the bid at the auction and just release it for us.

I think middle child is hardest Cole song I heard recently and even those bars are baby thighs soft.
been listening to it alot recently and he does go hard imo, good message in the song with the double meaning.

Been listening to Friday Night lights and sideline story though, seemed much more rounded back then for me. Much better storytelling and bars. It feels like he's just gone too conscious nowadays to the point where he just rambles.

Simba series will probably always be his best songs imo

Well that Chance album is trash

Massive Chance fan but yeah not a fan of it. I liked Coloring Book (an album most OG fans aren’t a fan of compared to his first two mixtapes) but this felt like a bit of a damp squib..no energy. Not helped by the length. Forgettable on first listen. Having said hat you can still appreciate the production he puts in his songs and maybe it’ll get better with multiple listens.

I think a lot of you guys may like Rich Brian’s latest album, The Sailor. For those that don’t know he’s an Indonesian rapper, used to go by the name of Tich Chigga. He basically grew up listening to American rap and when he was like 17 (probably only about 20/21 now) moved to USA to pursue his music career. One of his influences is/was Tyler which I think you can hear in his style.

Both Acid Rap and Coloring Book were better focused projects. Especially production wise. This one seems all over the place. No direction at all.

Just saw an article on the main board about the best year for albums. There was also a similar thing done for movies on that board...so which do we prefer for hip hop?

Off the top I can think 96:

All Eyez on Me
Reasonable Doubt
It Was Written
The Score
The 7 Day Theory
Illadelph Halflife
Hell on Earth

Going a year earlier.

GZA, Rae and Meth solo albums
My favourite Pac album (me against the world)
Big L, Lifestylez of the poor and dangerous
The Infamous Mobb Deep
The Roots Do ya want More
Tha Dogg Pound, Dogg Food
Tha Pharcyde, Labcabincalifornia
Cypress Hill, Temple of Boom
AZ Do or Die
Luniz, Stackola
LL, Mr Smith
Bone Thugs, E. Eternal 1999

Definitely somewhere from 92 to 96 for me.

Not to sound like old heads that say you can't make music like back in the day...I always say 2011 is probably one of the best years for hip hop in recent times. You had

Watch the Throne
Section 80
Longterm Mentality
Follow Me Home
Return of 4Eva
The Dreamer/The Believer
Fear of God 1 & 2
Cold Day In Hell
Self Rule
Well Done
We Are Renegades
Hell The Sequel

Nostalgia Ultra & House of Balloons...not really hip hop I know.
