did Underachieverz sample "Mystic Brew" as well or am I making that up? I think I'm making it up.

Actually, if we're gonna get picky... Kanye and Cons sampled "Electric Relaxation," which of course features Tribe sampling "Mystic Brew," but they didn't sample Foster directly. :)


Cole (or whoever) sampled "Mystic Brew," directly like Tribe did for "Electric Relaxation" as you said, but didn't sample "ER." And I actually like "Forbidden Fruit" too. Can't really help it. I don't remember anything about Cole's performance from the song, but "Mystic Brew" is such a dope ass track and lends itself to hip hop so beautifully.

Not sure about Underachievers. They really went downhill after Cellar Door. Heads went too far up their asses. And I had such hope!!

Yeah, I know! Did some listening this morning. Fun and cute, with a couple really awesome moments, but it seems like Chance is getting farther away from rappity-rappin'. I find myself just dying to hear him start to rip, but he is doing a LOT of sing-songy talk-singing these days.

Anyway, definitely a mixtape worth hearing.

I listened to Black Star this morning too. Goddamn that is a great album. I really, really, really want to hear Dec. 99th, but I quit TIDAL a while ago. Hopefully -- because Mos Def, and even moreso "Yasiin Bey" — is such a relatively low profile artist compared to the likes of Kanye, Rihanna and Beyoncé -- they'll only make it a TIDAL exclusive until tomorrow.

I can't imagine there's a shit ton of money to made in holding a Yasiin Bey album ransom for weeks/months. His fans have been his fans for nearly 20 years, and TIDAL isn't going save itself by tapping into that particular demographic.

Crossing my fingers and holding my breath for a Friday iTunes/CD release.

I actually love Jeremih. I still listen to Late Nights all the time. But this tape is just cute, pretty underwhelming for both..

This new Migos & Lil Uzi collaboration surprised me:

Rob, check it out. I think you're gonna like it.

Hey, so, I previewed some of the Dec 99th tracks (alas it is not for sale on iTunes or on CD yet), and I just want to throw this out there so y'all aren't surprised... it is not what you're probably expecting. There's a pretty pronounced British grime influence, and the songs are dark as fuck and mostly sung. Think more along the lines of a slow-mo Death Grips or an even grimmer Yeezus than The Ecstatic or Black on Both Sides.

Weird. Definitely weird. But I don't hate what I've heard. It's just not what I was hoping for.

Oh yeah I forgot to mention.. I've heard the singles prior to the release. It's an experimental project, with a lot of sung vocals and it sounds really dark like you said. Can't say I'm disappointed though, especially after the Cole album I think it's gonna feel like a breath of fresh air. ;)

Houston Rapper Paul Wal arrested.

Yeah, I'm not disappointed either. But... kinda seems destined to be talked about for about a week and then promptly forgotten.

Sadly, I feel you on that.

Finally listening to "Honor Killed the Samurai". Always better late than never, heh.

louder 12.24.2016 12:25 PM

Earl is a fan of Ka and I can totally see why. He's kinda like an adult version of him in a way.

Need more listens.
