Yeah. It's been a while, but yeah.

That reminds me, I still haven't checked out his 2015 release Your Face.

Man I am not super feeling the new Underachievers, guys! I feel like a turncoat. I've been championing those guys since Indigosim (which is- far and away- their best work and one of the best hip hop releases of the decade), but I can't get behind Art of Duality. There's nothing *wrong* with it, but... It's just more of the same.

They don't sound hungry and dangerous like they did on Indigo, or even on Cellar Door's primo moments. They sound... pedantic. And it's just the Cellar Door concept. Like, oh look we are the ying and the yang -- oh, we're STILL the ying and the yang... it's *duality* yo, cuz we're womanizing thugs but we're also super spiritual!

Uh-uh! No! That's corny shit! What the hell are you guys doing?!

As far as "beast coast" is concerned, Joey Bada$$ is running circles around them at this point. The beats are fine, mostly, and many of the lyrics are passable, but I'm not re-playing tracks. It's just not good enough, dammit.

Well yeah, Rocky's ALLA destroys both Underachievers proper albums... But is Rocky really part of the whole "beast coast" scene? I don't think of him that wa, but maybe I'm wrong.


ALLA has been a slow burner for me... This wasn't the case with Live.Love or Long.Live (though I did briefly think Long.Live was a bit lacking... not sure why, since it's obviously a perfect album). But ALLA immediately hit me hard, then I went through an extended period of only listening to a few of the songs... I'm only now starting to see that it really does work as an album, and that it holds up to repeated listenings.

"Excuse me" is still my jam though.

Yeah, but is it "OK" Game of Year of the Wolf, the "sometimes amazing" Game of Jesus Piece, or is it THE GAME? Know what I mean?

Everybody (except for, like, me) hated YOTW, and Jesus Piece was underrated as hell, even with that killer title track. The Game's fans haven't been Game fans lately. Why do people feel like resurrecting an old album title is going to make him great again?

I've always liked him, myself, even his "bad" albums. But... man, rap album sequels almost never manage to really match the original (unless you're Raekwon)

I thought YOTW was alright, but his weakest studio album. Jesus Piece was great. Anyway, I listened to the first few tracks on this one at lunch and I like it a lot. It's not what you're expecting. It's weird - it has a very deliberate 90's hip hop sound. There's a track w/ Dre and Cube produced by Will.I.Am that throwbacks to "Rebirth Of Slick" of all things. There's tracks built on Pac's "I Get Around" and Erykah Badu's "On And On"... and this is the first 4 or 5 tracks. Really interesting album honestly. I'm sort of caught off guard.

Well, what do you guys think? Should I get the standard edition or wait for 2.5?

(Yeah, I'm buying it. It's the Game. I buy Game albums.)

I'm pretty excited about it too at this point.

Whoah. Weird.

I have my hands full with new releases right now. Trying to work in time for the new Deerhunter, Battles, Oneohtrix.., Deafheaven, etc. all at the same time. But oddly I'm finding myself listening to less and less music of any kind. Kinda sucks.

Yeah man, you didn't know about that?

I like that song quite a bit.

I'm thinking it will be kind of like a hip-hop/jazz/funk version of Atoms for Peace. Not sure why.

There's a new Blackalicious album out now. Did I mention that already? It's not bad.

I kinda stopped listening to Blackalicious years ago, but I'd be lying if I didn't say I had a special place in my heart for Blazing Arrow and The Craft. I like Imani Vol.1 too. Glad to see them back.

Hey man I keep meaning to message you. I went through EVERYTHING and while you definitely have a few albums I wouldn't mind having, nothing really jumped out at me. There's a lot of overlap in our collections.

Did you really list your entire hip-hop/rap collection? There were a couple of titles (can't remember which, now) that I didn't see, and it made me scratch my head a bit.

I'm sorry bro.
