I thought he was saying "Wake up nigga, gotta get the K-Cup nigga". Like he has to get up and make coffee in his Keurig machine. I'm completely serious, and a bit unwilling to believe it could be anything else now.
EDIT: I don't know if anyone is still paying attention, but /u/roymedina pointed out that Travi$ already says "Wake up nigga, smell the Folgers" on '16 Chapels'. If 'Pornography' is supposed to be sort of an intro/narration to the Travi$ "character", it would make sense that he's moved up from Folgers to a Keurig machine in the time since Owl Pharaoh was released.
i can't believe this took almost a week lmao. the sample of the short ass reference track is sooo cheesy
edit: lyrics for everyone who couldn't understand it those genius boys are quick
I hate when this happens. I have songs in my head all the time being a host and dj on Real Rap Radio. We play hip hop every Tuesday 3-6 pm. Not the "Hot" hip hop but the REAL! Anyway, as soon as I read the post I knew the song u were talking about so I hit up one of my fellow dj's at RIU who does a segment called the 401 at 4:01, Keith Grillo. He plays songs from local artists during his show every Thursday. Anyway, I explained to him what was going on and he knew the answer immediately. Anyway, here's the answer Prodz - Forbidden Love http://www.4shared.com/mp3/gg_Kh3BGce/Prodz_-_Forbidden_Love.html I re upped the link...
All the anecdotes can be found here, and this one about "Stronger" is my favorite:
>Later on, we were planning a tour after that and we were pulling up samples and things to add over songs in the live performances. I pulled up the acapella for “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” and he just looked at me like “There’s an a-capella?” And said “Yeah, it’s on the 12-inch, everyone has it.” He said, “Do you know how much we struggled to mix that fucking beat because I sampled it with the drums in it from the breakdown? You mean to tell me that there was a fucking acapella?” In the Daft Punk original, there’s a breakdown with just the little compressed drums and the vocals. He sampled that and put his drums over it. The big challenge was how to work his drums around the drums in the sample. That was funny.
Hey guys - it's been a hot minute since I last posted, and given the legendary beef that is playing out right now, it seems like a good time to post this. Check out all my other artist collections at The Hip Hop Project - enjoy!
If you ever need any artwork/designing done I don't mind helping out the /r/hiphopheads community with it. It's the only thing I'm slightly above average at and I definitely owe you guys something back just for being awesome.
*Edit - I feel like I should at least try and back that up. Here's a Port Folio of sorts...
I was there heres two videos I got in the first one four guys lift up a barrier and throw it at someone https://instagram.com/p/z8viI1s0EW/?modal=true
Also during the fights I retreated to the bathroom to watch the videos I got only to find my roommate washing blood off his hands in the sink. One of the most outrageous nights of my life.
Just remembered at one point in the show the Migos played a new song called "Real Street Niggas" and said their album is dropping June 17th
My roommate didn't stab anyone
You say this as if laws weren't created specifically to target minority communities. Nixon aides have stated on record that the war on drugs was started to lock up black people (also anti-vietnam war people, although the latter became a moot point while the former continued for a long time).
Yesterday I went to a Juicy J, Ludacris, and Ke$ha concert and it was the single hypest, weirdest, most fucked up thing I've ever seen in the best way possible. Between Juicy throwing money and Jordans into the crowd and Ludacris askin how many girls in the audience have their real ass and clean pussy and Ke$ha referencing her vagina for 45 minutes, I still have three-quarters of my hypeboner.
Edit: Pic from Juicy's IG and Luda hype man Lil Fate
This is a huge song for Yela, I reckon he's about to get the recognition he deserves.
*Em also kills it on this track, he seems back on form lately. If he were to drop an album with verses of this calibre, I think he'd be back on top. That flow at the end:
"Fill up a syllable clip like a refillable script, cock and I shoot"
Is insane. One of the best Eminem verses I've heard in years.
what's a line that a rapper uses that basically sums him or her up?
I would go with Drake's line on Over My Dead Body:
>Oh, you wanna be a motherfucking funny guy?
>Don't make me break your Kevin Hart, boy
it's missing a reference to Toronto but Drake's the only dude who's gonna threaten another guy with breaking his heart
also, all I could think of during that Suge Knight thread was Reese Witherspoon so I made this
I use rate your music and that tends to have a lot of stuff that doesn't make it high up on here. Here's a hip hop chart for 2018: https://rateyourmusic.com/customchart?page=1&chart_type=top&type=album&year=2018&genre_include=1&include_child_genres=1&genres=hip+hop&include_child_genres_chk=1&include=both&origin_countries=&limit=none&...
Even a Drake diss song sounds sentimental as shit.
Edit: Rap Genius, in case you want to read into the levels and shit. Also, I don't think this was a diss, this was a warning shot right next to Meek's ear.
IF YALL DON'T GOT APPLE MUSIC, I GOT YOU WITH MY STREAM HERE
THIS STREAM IS BACK UP!
~~EDIT THAT STREAM CRASHED, NEW STREAM~~
~~THIS STREAM IS GOING TO FAIL SOON DUE TO ME NOT PAYING FOR THE SITE N SHIT, HERE'S THE BACKUP, HAVE IT OPEN IN A NEW TAB, IT SHOULD SWTICH OVER SEEMLESS~~
El's been tweeting a lot about how much doing this score excites him so I've got high hopes for this. Capone's life is really interesting as well (check out this book if you want a comprehensive look at his life), so hopefully it'll be pretty hard to fuck this up
that being said, the director is the guy who did fant4stic so yknow, it's possible that it'll be garbage
Blowfly was a parody funk artist who did incredibly dirty songs, and then he started doing rap right after the birth of it, and so he was then the first person to ever do dirty rap music (this shit came out the same year as "The Breaks"). He was a pioneer for both people like 2 Live Crew, and people just saying more explicit things in general.
Blowfly had a huge influence on Snoop Dogg (along with Dolomite), and Snoop is probably going to be devastated by his death. He very much respects Blowfly and has had him on GGN a number of times.
This started with Jay's verse on 'So Appalled'
>I lost 30 mil, so I spent another 30/Cause unlike Hammer, 30 million can't hurt me
MC Hammer went pretty broke in the 90's, for you younger kiddos here. MC Hammer calls Jay a Satanist, Jay pretty much said he wasn't even worth responding too. All pretty pathetic if you couldn't tell.
Here's an archive of an old hip-hop forum
Some of the posts were made in the 90s.
Yo, I've been following the man since 2007, just wanted to clear a few things up:
Jay hasn't ever put out an official EP -- everything is a leak by DJs or old friends of his from his Detroit days. In other words, Style Wars EP was unofficial.
Furthermore, a great deal of existing Jay Electronica music was made between 2003-2006 in Detroit with J Dilla and Mr. Porter, though much of it didn't get released until after Jay made it big with Act I.
Here's a discography that's up-to-date as of last fall, I believe the only track it's missing is the one he did with Rapsody: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-YrAk8Z3LUiZzZ2WDFYVkV4cDg/edit?usp=sharing
Thanks for making this guide, it's long overdue.
Peace, and may every day be another day closer to Act II.
Lol remember the time some guy on here was trying to find this song but couldn't remember the name or artist so he uploads himself mumbling what it sounded like? I saved it before he took it down, gonna try and find it, it's hilarious,..
EDIT: FOUND IT
SHEESH it sounds so much better on Tidal. I don't have a subscription but it lets me listen full http://tidal.com/#!/us/jayelectronica ain't no preview biihh
Edit: looks like it was a glitch for half a day, no more free preview bih
please donate to support public radio. NPR is supported by viewer funding, and they do so much for the culture. Method Man was on Wait wait don’t tell me last week, they had CyHi’s album streaming early, and we haven’t and even gotten started on their journalism.
can I post a soundcloud link?
this is just a freestyle any feedback will be welcome. lemme know if I should add/take away bars, could still use some work probably
HOLY SHIT! You just posted this after the perfect moment in time happened.
This may get buried since this post is a few hours old, but you also seem a bit off your rocker so you're probably reading every one of these comments looking for pussy references haha.
I'm a programmer, and I think this would be hilarious to actually achieve through automation. It's not insanely hard to do so either! The icing on the big pussy-flavored cake? The fucking Genius.com API just got publicly released TWO WEEKS AGO, after people have been asking for it for years!
For the non-technical savvy, that means that you can do far more simplistic lines of code to pull data from a website's information.
I really don't see this being hard to do at all. If anyone else on here has programming experience and wants to help me (as I am stupid busy with my non-pussy-related programming tasks) please message me! And OP, hit me up too. What you're doing is admirable, but as this fuckin genius said:
> As a programmer, performing a pointless robotic task causes me great emotional pain.
Hit me up OP, and y'all programmers out there.
He talks about washing xanax down with cough syrup to fight off thoughts of suicide. Im not sure if you would classify that as deep, but he has some serious problems and raps about them a lot.
Tpab is now the #1 hip hop album on Rate Your Music, thoughts?
Also, Flower Boy has broken in to the top 40 hip hop albums.
Not really, I'm VERY bad at hearing/listening to lyrics. Which is part of why I never got into rap very much and why some of my ratings are wildly different than some people here. There was one line that absolutely killed me though:
>the bitch worshiped my nuts, I guess she's sackreligious
I had to stop the track, I was laughing so hard.
>US had a black liberal president for 8 years and black people couldn't dig themselves out of the shit hole they've buried themselves in
Get the fuck outta here with that ignorant bullshit. Have you ever cracked open a history book? Better yet, have you ever listened to the lyrics of the hip hop music you're apparently a fan of?
There's too much stupidity to unpack here so I'll give you the truncated version: the history of blacks in the US has been one of literal subjugation (i.e. slavery), disenfranchisement, and social/economic discrimination. In and of itself that's not saying that black persons 'can do no wrong' or anything like that, but to assert the problems of the black community are equivalent to a "shit hole they've buried themselves in" is such a colossal distortion of reality... Try reading something like "The Autobiography of Malcolm X" to get a taste of this truth you've ignored.
>Yea trump might cut welfare a bit but you'll have a job to go to instead to actually earn the money
Not even gonna touch this one
love Guapdad, respect what POTW does, but can’t stand Jeff’s writing.
“It’s a bonafide PIN-snatching anthem, a dark-webbed lurking, survival of the fittest homage so long as your iPhone has NordVPN installed and an hour of battery life.”
> I ain't even gonna lie, I got a million dollar chick
> With a billion dollar pussy
>Every time I cum, I swear to God I feel like I be rich
I was listening to Nosetalgia by Pusha T again today and Kendrick just murders his verse with my favorite part being
>Quantum physics could never show you the world I was in
>When I was ten, back when nine ounces had got you ten
>And nine times out of ten, niggas don't pay attention
>And when there's tension in the air, nines come with extensions
Pusha T destroys his verse as well, overall a great song. I hope to hear more like it on King Push if it ever comes out.
Also for anybody that downloaded my HHH Fresh app that notifies you about fresh music, I updated it today and fixed tons of bugs, especially bugs that were affecting Android 8.0 Oreo users.
What is your favorite track where a featured artist absolutely kills everybody else on the track?
Don't think she would have deleted it if she was just messing around. Karen is also one of the more serious people in TDE.
The reason it's hard to tell is cuz his head is tilted back. But I would still bet money that is Kendrick.
We'll find out soon enough though.
EDIT: Here is definitive proof. https://instagram.com/p/0Exs0xmWGm/
tap the picture so you can see the tags. Kendrick's name is right on the one holding the baby
That beat sound A LOT like the one I made a few months ago...
Edit: And I sent that beat to Twelvey... I wonder what happened.
Edit 2: I figured it's probably coincidence because it's a popular sample... but I wonder if I influenced him to use that because of what I sent... we'll never know.
Hey guys, here's my latest collection - Gucci Mane. As usual if you happen to know of some rare obscure tracks, make sure to list them on here as I update regularly.
Check out my other collections right HERE from Kanye to Kendrick and everyone inbetween.
Or this golden lyric from lil bosie :
> (Now) If you love yo nigga, Hug yo nigga (hug yo nigga)
> Look em' dead in the eye > And tell yo nigga
> Tell that nigga you love em' (you love them)
That's the closest thing we're going to get to "Homies over hoes" in real life I think.
If you're interested and want to see the catalyst that kicked off the prescription pill epidemic, I highly recommend American Pain by John Temple. It follows the exploits of a then quasi legal pharmacy in Florida (these types of pharmacies are now illegal in Florida). But, the author delves deep into the institutions that allowed it to happen and follows the money intently. It's really fucked up and a great read.
I'm 90 albums deep this year (I have a list and thoughts on each for those interested). My favorite Hip-hop albums have been:
Outside of rap my favorites have been:
This makes more sense than I want it to.
I remember another thread on KTT where somebody said that a lot of Graduation was ghostwritten by Big Sean, which isn't that far out of the realm of possibility, especially since it's already confirmed that Big Sean worked on at least part of the album, and a lot of the album (ESPECIALLY Champion and Good Life) sounds like stuff Sean would do.
I mean it's pretty blatant what it's saying.
TinyMixtapes and Genius have pretty alright explanations.
Nah, he mentioned it on Drink Champs::
>“I took a super L,” Push said about the jingle. “Just upfront, no publishing. Shoutout to [former music executive] Steve Stoute, he gave me the check and I was like ‘Ahhh great.'”
>“I want artists to know that part. Keep your publishing,” he continued. “That check will be nice, but ‘I’m Lovin’ It’ been running for how long now? I did This in ’03. Who knows what it would have been.”
But he does get 40% of the Arby's "We have the meats" jingle:
>“The get back is real. I also own 40 percent of the Arby’s commercial. You live and you learn,” Push said, referring to the slogan “We have the meats” that comes at the end of their most recent commercials.
I get what you mean, the delivery of that line is awkward, but it's a reference to a Biggie line which, if you listen to the original song, is with the exact same delivery ("so don't...go there").
I thought overall his verse was dope. Laid back deliver went with the smooth ass beat, the typical Soulo wordplay with things like "And if that tech jammed you better have a toast too" (jam & toast, toaster=gun) and "I've seen lost angels, I even found demons" (los angeles), and then the way he says the last line to end the verse about his dad's death was just...damn.
this got ignored when I posted it, cuz theres some tendancy here to downvote shit even if its important
but Daz and Kurupt are performing the entire DOGG FOOD album in Orange County on March 5th

Yes, it's just a service called rapstats that searches rap genius lyrics for phrases and then shows you the frequency with which they appear, you can search for your own phrases (up to 3 words) here.
usenet is part of google groups now so if you search that you'll probably find it
like here's one from 98 talking about if it's overrated
here's one from the day it dropped (only like two comments though

Lupe Fiasco's The Cool is a story about a few characters.
All three being a personification of various things. Life styles, corruption, temptation, deception, etc.
Here's a post that breaks it down pretty well.
If this can't make you a fan then I'm not sure what will... haha
edit: there's hella other shit that you can interpret to be related to each character that the post doesn't point out but it does list the main ~~ones~~ songs on the bottom so make sure to listen to those!
edit: my friend pointed out Pharaoh Height 2/30 is a play to Fahrenheit and 1/15.
Was it only me that missed that?
A photo of Malia Obama wearing a Pro Era shirt leaked, and some conservative media outlets kinda flipped shit.
Can't find the exact articles I read from them but here's a genius forum about it.
was bored and ranked my top 90 hip hop albums of the 10s. only genre restriction was that it couldn't be instrumental.
anyway roast me.
It's from this movie called "Coffee & Cigarettes" which is a collection of short films involving coffee and cigarettes. RZA, GZA, and Bill Murray's segment was by far my favorite.
He contributed Crew Love, Shot for Me, The Ride, Practice, and Cameras/The Good Ones Go. This interview goes more in depth. He was a pretty big influence on the record.
"I'm a alien, I hope you aint the Prince of Bel Air" Literally saying that he thought/was worried that Pusha was going to murder him.
What line did you initially not realize was an homage/borrowed/taken from another song?
For me it was Kendrick's "I got 25 lighters on my dresser" line from "Backseat Freestyle". Hadn't heard the Z-Ro track until after.
Edit: Which I guess goes back to an 8Ball & MJG song and even further to a DJ DMD song. So I really didn't know shit about the history of that line haha.
It's so fucking funny how casually he talks about hearing Gin and Juice when it first came out.
EDIT: Heres people in 96 arguing West coast vs East coast
For those wondering what happened to the show
They basically never got paid so they had to make a kickstarter to keep the show going...and didn't even get close to reaching the goal

Was Foxy Brown present when Zip gave the Glock to Keffe D in Vegas and if so, did you (Greg), the LAPD, and/or the LVPD ever interview her about that night to corroborate Keffe D's story? If so, what did the interview(s) reveal?
Also, do you believeThe Notorious BIG was aware of Puff Daddy's involvement in Tupac's murder prior to his death? If so, when did he become aware? If you believe he was never aware, how do you reconcile that belief with the lyrics of "Long Kiss Goodnight" and the allegation that Biggie's wife, Faith Evans, knew all about it?
I love the sample on The Glory.
I also really like the 21st Century Schizoid Man sample on Power. I would have used Devil in a New Dress, but IIRC that's a Mike Dean production.
As good as it is (pretty good IMO), I can't help but feel that this is exactly what I'd expect from a new Beyonce song... nothing really mindblowing here.
What? "Uptown Funk" directly used the hook from Trinidad James' "All Gold Everything"

Yeah I've really tried to understand the overwhelming praise and I just don't get it... It's decent but when people are throwing their arms up claiming it as some sort of "masterpiece" for the trap genre and it's got one of the 5 highest ratings ever for a trap song on RateYourMusic.com I just can't help but wonder why.
Like, people have been rapping about drug abuse and depression in hip hop since The Message. This is nothing new. And nothing about the way Uzi describes it comes off as particularly insightful or impressive to me. When he isn't talking about drugs or his ex the rest of the lyrics in the song consist of predictable brags ("Stackin' my bands all the way to the top", "Clothes from overseas, got the racks and they all C-Notes", etc.) The beat is nice but nothing that blows me away compared to the stuff that guys like Metro, Mike Will, Southside, etc. have been doing lately. Hook is easily the best part of the song but that's just one component of the whole piece, and I still don't think it's so godly that it deserves being praised to the high heavens like it has been. Also I've admittedly never liked Uzi's voice but I understand that's not a legitimate reason to dog on the guy so I won't count that against him.
I just fail to see how it's anything more than a catchy pop rap tune with slightly darker than usual subject matter for a song that's on the radio. I feel like I would need to be seriously invested in Uzi's personal life and relationships to be fully in love with it, and I'd honestly be very surprised if he's any sort of significant force in hip hop even 5 years down the line. Idk, maybe I'm wrong.
Not sure how anyone can have a strong feeling either way on it. Smallest verse on the album and I bet if she went JK Rowling on y'all and called herself Jessica Empolon, no one would be crying in their soup.
I gotta go with The Autobiography of Malcolm X.
Before I read that I was just another middle-class white kid who had only met a couple black kids in his life. I had internalized some of that institutional racism.
Reading that book made me open my eyes to the fact that it was a perpetuated thing. It also made me much prefer Malcolm X to MLK, even though MLK radicalized near the end of his life.
That sample was first popularized by J Dilla and Madlib back around 2005. It's since been used by MF Doom, Wiz Khalifa, and yes Tyler, the Creator.
I doubt Royce is going through Tyler's catalogue looking for beats.
Did anyone see the instagram video Curren$y put up last night of wiz picking him up from the hotel in a lowrider? God damn that shit was triumphant. Spitta was so proud.
No, a big part of her hate is plenty of other stuff including racist tweets or changing Kendrick's lyrics that referred to himself as a slave to refer to herself as a slave master.
Hey guys - thought I'd give Kid Cudi the doogywassa treatment this time. Such an awesome musician.
Check out my other collections on Kendrick, Eminem, Kanye and much more right here
done. soundcloud is a gigantic piece of shit site and it's not loading for me but ill try mixcloud
Black person here and I kinda disagree. Call me a backpacker, that's fine but I think it has more to do with standards than "fun allergies".
I am legitimately concerned with the direction of black people in general and the direction of hip-hop isn't helping(not saying it's the cause of black strife but correlations can be found). Not trying to start a huge debate about the relevance of that statement either but it is what it is.
Again, this is my opinion but I don't indulge in someone like Waka Flocka or Soulja Boy, not only because I think it's trash, but it CAN also be destructive to black people. Yeah, whites eat it up too, but they're are much more capable of removing themselves from the music entirely.
It certainly isn't a intellectual status for me. I'm too old to give a shit about a "status". I just like music that makes you think, I like thought-provoking lyrics, not necessarily "conscious" or "positive" rap but I don't like hearing the constant "Money, Bitches, Swag" theme. Sure, I have been known the rage to Gucci when the drinks start flowing and it's a good atmosphere, but when it comes to objective listening that shit is junk.
Dr Boyce Watkins and Micheal Eric Dyson two of my favorite black intellectuals had a debate over hip-hop and the accountability of the rappers. Very much worth your time. Not saying this will change how you look at this topic but it a very good listen if you have the time. I think everyone in the sub should listen.
I am a web developer, here is some feed back:
Clicking. Make sure the user is allowed to click on the whole area of the title, not just the actual text. To do so, you need to float the element "a" (which is the link) to the left. Then adding margins to top and to the bottom (so it centered). Doing so, you can click on the full height of the bar. Make sure it's 100% width so you can click on the whole area. This allows for the responsive you already got going on.
As someone mentioned below, it would be cool if you can open the links directly into the site without having to open the other site, and then just crediting the site. I would do so by using the accordion feature from jquery ui. I see you already have jquery running on your site. Check out this accordion. http://jqueryui.com/demos/accordion/
As you can see you can collapse/open panels. Another way it would be having like lightboxes. I still like the accordion more.
Fonts, make them bigger, especially for the titles on for each section. Font's too fat to read well.
Design wise - Add more color.
If you need any advice on how to do anything you are stuck feel free to send me a PM and I can guide you. Good job, looking good.
This weekend I got completely smashed and passed out on my friends couch. They drew a swastika on my forehead (and a whole lot of dicks on my arm). I woke up after an hour and decided to walk home, they were laughing and told me not to go, but I got drunk angry and left anyway.
I woke up in the morning and saw the swastika. Hard to believe I'm still alive.
Anyone else see Days of Future Past? Quicksilver was sweet as shit.
If anyone wants to hear some sweet NZ Hip-hop, check CPM out. They're kind of decent despite the meme named song.
It's not in any official review but he has mentioned it as a 'classic' in his "I hate hiphop?" video, and on his rateyourmusic page he ranked it as 10/10.
I'm not sure if you're serious or not, but the librarian in me can't pass this up.
The Third Life of Grange Copeland was her first book. It follows the life of a black sharecropper from the 1930s to the 1960s and is not just a snapshot of black vs. white relationships, but also abuse and how difficult it is to escape the binds of family history. It's a tough read and it's almost impossible to muster up any sort of sympathy for the main character, but by the end of the book you'll feel like you've known these people personally for years.
The Way Forward is with a Broken Heart is my personal favorite by Walker. It's a collection of stories that are mostly fictional, with some autobiographical strands running through them. It's a great introduction to Walker's style of writing, and much less depressing than the majority of her novels. The highlight for me is her telling of the marriage she had to a white man.
Obviously, she's most well-known for The Color Purple, but she has an extensive bibliography of novels, essays, and poems and I wanted to recommend some lesser known works.
I'm not Slug, just a huge fan.
It's on the Overcast! EP, found here. Vinyl and cassette only. Instrumental can be found on The Lucy EPs.
It's discontinued, so you'd technically wouldn't be compensating him, but it's the closest you'll get, I'm pretty sure. I'll check my collection to make sure they didn't release it on anything else.
Charlamagne is very vocal about his dislike of Drake (think the same way BigGhost does, for being soft and all that) and Funkmaster Flex apparently sided with Meek during this whole beef. So I guess this is Drake siding with the enemy of his enemy and showing his #1 hater that he really is all that.
> This is a direct allusion to Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man. The unnamed narrator is walking down the streets of New York City when he smells yams, which triggers memories of his hometown in The South.
> Yams are a key ingredient in African cuisine and have significance in some parts of Africa as a sign of social status. In his novel Things Fall Apart, Chinua Achebe begins by documenting how a man’s worth in Ibo society was largely determined by his yearly yam yield. When Kendrick says he “got the yams,” he means he has attained money, power and prestige.
> In a certain moment in America, the closest analogue to yams was arguably crack, thanks to its boom in the 1980s. Crack also has a distinctive smell which lingers. To expand the metaphor, Kendrick can “smell” that the government (“the power that be”) had a role in the crack epidemic that destroyed black neighborhoods in the 80s.
5 lb bag of Sour Patch, $17, on amazon prime. I'm sorry for showing you this.
R&B is allowed here. It doesn't have to be "in the realm of hip hop"
Instead of trying to be an arbiter of genres I usually just go with RYM because they're fairly accurate.
According to Rick Rubin's annotation of Black Skinhead, Kanye went on a rant and said something like "I turn on the radio and nothing speaks to me, and I don’t want to have anything to do with it, and I don’t want my music on the radio because I don’t like what the radio is.” So that sounds like he didn't want it on the radio.
I wish Bone Thugs got more recognition today than they do. I mean theyre one of the best selling rap acts of all time and have 2 classics (E1999 Eternal & Creepin on ah Come Up) and The Art of War, BTNHRessurection and Strength & Loyalty are all really solid. And without them, we wouldn't have Migos for example, the influence is crazy. I mean they basically invented a unique style, they were both chopper rappers and also melodic as fuck, almost singing sometimes.
This is such an incredibly reductive view of criticism. I would agree that sometime reviewers can get carried away, and the quality of reviews can be debated, but critical thinking is essential and at the core of all digestion of art. Would highly recommend you check out this book by A.O. Scott which goes into this in way more depth. Plenty of artists are critics themselves as well.
There's definitely a debate on whether or not scores are problematic, but I'd say it's more that people don't fundamentally appreciate what a score in criticism aims to convey, rather than the score itself.
Check out this video. It's one of the first music videos and a lot of people say a precursor to rap.
Childish Gambino - R.I.P. I was really impressed with the song until I looked it up. Bun B's verse is still sick though
Basically, Tidal allows you to stream music with a much higher bit rate. The highest quality mp3 is about 320 kbit/s, whereas a lossless audio file has a bit rate more than four times that (1,411 kbit/s). This means your going to get a lot more quality from the top and bottom end of a song.
However, being able to tell the difference is going to rely heavily on the quality of your headphones or speakers. You can try their website demo. It plays a song at a lower bitrate and then switches it to lossless. If you can't tell the difference or can only barely tell the difference, then you probably don't want to spend $20 a month for the service.
Here the album page for ABC on rateyourmusic: link. It has over a thousand ratings, 7 reviews, is #19 overall for the year, and #5 among hip hop albums. That's the only place where I've seen the album have any traction or discussed at length (the comments box has a lot of comments).
According to hip hop legend, Snoop wrote most of The Chronic, at least his and Dre's parts. According to this, Snoop at least wrote on every song but 3 out of the 16 tracks (1 of which he didn't write on is a skit)...and he was featured on 11 songs, also, he's the only writing credit on "Nuthin But a G Thang". Dr. Dre wrote on 11 tracks, which means Snoop had 2 more writing credits on Dr. Dre's album than Dr. Dre. So, take it for what it's worth.
>What is HHH currently writing? a book? an essay? a blog?
Currently writing a blog, mostly casual album reviews, ~~I'll add the link in a minute~~ here's the link. I also just started running the same reviews on a Tumblr account, in case anyone prefers that method.
Is anyone else fucking excited for this Golden State/San Antonio game tonight? Regardless of your thoughts on the Warriors, we could be witnessing history, which is always crazy/fun. And it's one of the best NBA matchups ever, at least record-wise.
Would you rather see GS win? Lose? I personally want them to win just to see a record broken. I'm fairly young though (21) and didn't have the opportunity to see those MJ Bulls teams in action. I'm an OKC fan as well, so I don't have much invested in this matchup as a neutral fan.
Edit: Fixed links
Oh yeah... lots of samples.
Also check out WhoSampled for YouTube links to the specific portion of the song that was sampled. (Donuts starts at the very bottom of the page I linked)
looks at all their most viewed songs, complex songs dont have a lot of views, popular songs do.
people come to rap genius to understand references and slang more than actual song meaning
ex: hot nigga
i saw an article recently where some kid got in trouble for quoting that dj tag.
Lupe: 1st verse on Failure. There are 2 triple entendres in "throw off my scents" and "I reign supreme" and the rest is just packed with wordplay.
Edit: 3 actually see /u/tak08810's comment below.
This is actually pretty interesting, looks like Reasonable Doubt wasn't so hot with some people in 1996
I found u/MerovingianDynasty's RateYourMusic profile the other day. The plethora of 0.5 star ratings on Eminem and Kanye projects along with the 4 star rating for Everything Is Love pretty much confirms it's him.
The tupac line from logic's new song "city of stars" has everyone on Instagram going wild. People defending the line and others "denouncing" their logic fanboyism can't wait until the discussion thread I have a lot to say about the album.
What are your thoughts on the tupac line?
http://genius.com/8189283 there is the line if you haven't heard it yet.
I can't seem to find it, I remember back when it surfaced there were a few versions out there and I grabbed the one that was combined the best, I could upload it somewhere when I get off work if you remind me in like 4 hours ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Here's that. It's definitely the same pad melody. Doesn't feel that much slower but just different synths and drums. Feels like an intentional sample. Who sampled had D4L - I'm Da Man listed too,
