Oh, also @ louder:
I have been back and forth on Piñata all year. I've been a fickle fucker, for sure. But I just blasted the whole thing a few times over the weekend, and Madlib's twinkle is finally starting to really mesh in my mind with Freddie's straight gangsta flow. “Thuggin'” is one of the year's finest hip hop tracks.
What I'm saying is, I need to refurbish my TOP 10, because without Piñata it's not going to be worth a goddamn thing. Fredlib created a fucking masterpiece, and I'd m even go as far as to say it's one of the best *albjms* of the year period.
Change is hard
