I was going to give you some shit for being super hard to read, but now it seems like you hadn't heard the record at te time? And now you have and you're digging it?

I hope so, because I've always been like warm on Lupe. I liked the Cool, and I thought I liked Food & Liquor (a recent spin of the 5-year anniversary edition-- which come on... Who does a 5-year anniversary edition of anything?-- kinda bored me to tears and I was forced to reconsider my entire opinion of the album).... I never listened to Lazers, and I'm not sure why I was excited for this record but... Jesus, it's really goddamn artful. It's thematic, cinematic and BIG like a slightly more airy, pop friendly MBDTF. It's got that lovely cover art
(Is that design by the same guy who did the packaging for 808's?) and mostly it's fresh as hell.

"Mural" is my jam right now. What a killer track.

Other tracks don't necessitate the length... Like "Chopper," which would have been perfectly fitting as a 3 minute banger.... Some of the songs sound a bit out of place next to the more (can't believe I'm saying this) George & Ira Gershwin-like beauty of "Summer," "Mural," "Dots & Lines," "Fall," "Madonna.." Etc.

But the lesser songs have a lot to love about them. (Though there was no need to rhyme "FARTS" with "art" and "smart" on "Adoration of the Magi"... Really, that was totally uncalled for. Haha)

I think it's safe to praise Lupe for taking some chances. This may well be his MBDTF, and while it's got nothing on Ye, It's still an admirable attempt to prog-out hip hop. Plus, I like the Anime references

Not as solid and straight up deadly a record as B4.DA.$$, but as far as I'm concerned B4.DA.$$ is an undisputed success, and one of the strongest debuts in years.
yeah Lupe really delivered. Mural is unreal.. i had my doubts cuz as much as i love the original Food & Liquor, the sequel was bland as hell. Lasers was pretty bad too. this is his best album since The Cool for sure.

man.... Sremm, Bjork, Lupe, Belle & Sebastian, Sleater Kinney, Manson, Young L.... even as I'm making a conscious effort to hear 1 or 2 new releases per week, it's already looking like it will be a struggle to keep up and current in 2015!

so the new Rihanna, Kanye and Paul song is out.. and it's actually a song for Rihanna's album? need someone to clarify this.

here it is: http://www.rap-up.com/2015/01/24/new...urfiveseconds/

EDIT: what the hell, it's an acoustic song and Kanye is barely on it.. even for a Rihanna single it's pretty underwhelming.

so Wayne is suing Birdman for $8 million, which probably means we won't get Tha Carter V in a long time. i just remembered Wayne said he recorded enough material for about 9 albums. goddammit.

new Mike G single from Award Tour II

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Je3udde6Hfs

Mike G remains one of OF's secret weapons. Nobody ever talks about that guy, but his flow is always astounding to me.

new Big Sean song, featuring Drake and Kanye as a hidden feature: https://soundcloud.com/bigsean-1/blessings

Sean has really stepped it up recently, i never even liked him that much, but his new album might be good.

I really feel sorry for Big Sean. The consensus seems to be that he's pretty much just corny and terrible. I actually rocked "Hall of Fame" for like 2 straight weeks when I picked it up because it reminded me of Graduation. And because I'm a staunch supporter of G.O.O.D., and I love the shit out of every single moment on "Cruel Summer."

But he's just not on the same level as Pusha-T or T-Pain or Keef or any of the other artists that have aligned themselves with Ye and his label. So yeah, eventually I stopped listening altogether and the "Methadone for Kanye" effect wore off and I just wanted the real goddamn thing.

But I still think his style is an excellent addition to a group track. "Control" was SEAN's single after all, even if Kendrick got all the buzz.

I'm tempted to not even listen to the new Big Sean singles because I hate seeing the guy get blasted in the comments sections of itunes and datpiff and hiphopdx... It's just sad. He's a truly grateful guy, and I think that's obvious. He's definitely an underdog, and he's lacking the personality offered by the 2 Chainz and Pusha's of the world... But does he deserve to be crucified? Fuck no.

Anyway, I will have to check the new song due to the presence of Mr. West.

But personally I'm in Sean's corner and always have been.

I'm also starting to hat Drake. Yeah, he guested on a "remix" of one of 2014's best songs that sounded exactly like the original only with MORE non-rapping... and yeah, Nothing Was the Same ended up packing a lasting punch, but I'm so fucking tired of his name and voice and stupid face turning up everywhere.

I'd rather have Sean leading the industry than Drake. The guy is going to be a "I love the 00's" punchline on VH1 in 2030. I mean, just thinking about his "story" and sprinkling in a few of the more popular viral images of the last few years makes me question the sanity of this generation. Is this the long term effect of fluoride consumption?

....
Forgot what we were talking about again.

and yeah Drake has really oversaturated himself. now i heard he's planning to drop a mixtape BEFORE the album?? i just want him to take a really long break.

meanwhile, Andre 3000 and Frank Ocean were confirmed to be featured on Chance's next solo album. expecting greatness already.

Apparently Chance is playing with some multi-instrumental/cross-genre shit... Normally I'd say "slooow down" to an unsigned (or is he signed now? Fucking hard to know these days) Chicago rapper who has exactly one successful mix-tape to his name.

Actually, I'm saying that now... Fucker needs to slow down. What, does he think he's perfected rap already? Done all he can do with it by ripping off Common and Tribe and looking perpetually distracted like some autistic boy genius who engineers Lego castles in his head while you're trying to teach him how to fucking tell time!

Well Acid Rap was fine enough but he hasn't earned the right to jump ship yet. He needs to buckle down like Joey Bada$$ and deliver a classic debut that's chi-city to the core. Then he can mix things up, incrementally, first with production, then with song forms and some day with an inside out version of the genre.

But I do not want to hear how rad his friends are at riffing. It's the purpose of an emcee to make a testament out of nothing but his words, knowledge & linguistic skill. I know he's such a darling right now, but he's gonna fade fast if he doesn't prove Acid Rap wasn't a fluke. Hell, I can't believe kids can even openly like that record without getting their shit kicked at school. But I guess even the most thoroughly held-back senior in high school wouldn't even remember the release of College Dropout at this point, much less any substantive Gangsta rapper's formative years. Fuck..

But I digress.

I just feel like he needs to pay his respects to hip hop and live by the code a bit before turning into Prince.

No offense, but shouldn't we excommunicate this motherfucker for talking about non-hip hop music, so unapologetically, within the sacred walls of this fairweather thread?

I know there's no official rule banning discussions of other genres from our little suburban community just outside of Postpunk Noiseland, USA... but I do feel I should point out that the only time this practice serves us is when I talk about electronic music.

Nah, I'm just playing. Seriously though I have no interest in checking out this artist. The cover art you posted makes me think of Jason Mraz, whoever that is.

(Ha! I'm outrageous. Betcha can't tell that my life is coming apart at the seams.)

Hey, this album's pretty damn good! I have never listened to Vic Spencer prior to this... He's a fuckin' crate digger, and I like the sample play, the chopping and screwing of vintage jazz samples... He's a bit of a big deal in Chicago, but I'd never paid him any mind. I think he samples Earl Sweatshirt, among many others, but his flow is aggressive and he writes about crappy rap (which there's a lot of, let's be honest).

Not sure if I'll still like this in a month. He does dis Jigga at least once, which never goes over well with me. But on the whole it's a pretty good record so far.

Oh... He samples a lot of shit that I know but can't name. Damn. That's infuriating. Anyway check it out.
