Great lyrics, terrible beat, and her voice sounds just bad. She sounds like Lil Bow Wow

And I guess y'all right, she clearly wants to have that heavier sound that Kanye tried to have on Yeezus, I guess he is "influencing" people

^ agree. Lauryn's lyrics are great, but i wish she would smooth/mellow it out. give me more of that Miseducation sound.

You're already ready for another Earl album? Damn we got some short ass attention spans in this thread

I'm still digesting Doris.

Doesn't anyone have an opinion on Event II yet? I thought you all would be bustin out of your trousers.

As for me, I need some new DOOM, some Madlib projects, and that motherfucking new Wu Tang I was promised a year ago!

New Mos Def would b nice too, though I have been revisiting his albums and finding them less awesome than I remembered.

Pusha T and Killah Priest are serious contenders for the year end list.

I can't remember why I liked Hall of Fame. Big Sean has no flow whatsoever. Maybe it just reminded me of Graduation. Whatever, still fun for a listen.

Such focus has already paid off, said Steinberg. "He made his own record. He wouldn't listen to anybody. And there were songs — I'm just going to say this, and he's probably going to get mad at me — that could have been top hits on the charts that he recorded but he chose not to put them on the record. He wants to grow into his voice.

"He was like, 'I don't want to have a number one my first time around with this. Can I take my time with this?' I mean, we've had some crazy conversations."

Agreed, but that record is too long, too deep, and too complex to make a more mainstream Year's Best list. That is why it was self-released in the first place, Priest seems to be more concerned with releasing his art in his way on his terms than making it in any way a commercial success. Definitely and hands down best record (of any genre) of 2013, but it'd be a stretch to convince anyone

^ gotcha.

93 'til Infinity is getting the 20th anniversary reissue treatment soon.

"Half our homies are now dead, in jail, or super thugs," Opio says. "But our response to the hood was different. We were trying to elevate and expand our minds through psychedelics and books. When we were growing up, the thugs told us that they'd kill us if we sold dope with them. They told us that we needed to be the lawyers."

LEGENDS.

So seeing as everyone is so focused on what's just come out and all that, let's go back a bit.

Most over-rated rap/hip-hop albums?

Eazy-E! and y'know.. maybe just NWA in general. i used to like them a lot when i was younger.

but now i think that their appeal was always more about the imagery than the music.

and i'd be a liar if i said that Straight Outta Compton is a straight 10/10.

influential? SURE. but they also lacked the intelligence & creativity that the Wu, Quest Tribe & KAST had.

i do like the album though. they just seem like a bunch of goons to me. except for Ice Cube.

looking back, Lupe's first two albums aren't even that great, despite having a few great songs (which i still listen to from time to time). he had a spark but never fulfilled his potential. Kendrick already shits on him.

Donuts. Dilla is one of my fav producers but i just don't get half of the tracks. i prefer his work with Slum Village, Common, ATCQ, etc. sorry.

The College Dropout is a mess.

as much as i love it, it's probably Kanye's worst album.

and of course EMINEM EMINEM EMINEM. how can anyone call him the greatest MC of all time, if even around his "prime" other rappers dropped better albums?

Life After Death is great, but it could've been much better if Biggie had the chance to finish it like he intended to.

not gonna call any of Pac's last three "overrated".

i'm done.

How is it overrated? It was never hyped, or highly rated, or critically acclaimed. NWA was low-life, street, gang-related music, not for the radio, never intended for the radio, and never got play on the radio. NWA was underground, or as Eazy-E put it, "The underground hip-hop thugsterz.."

To be over-rated you have to be hyped in the first place, I'm just not buying that NWA or Eazy E were ever hyped in the first place. Did they make a lot of noise? Fuck the fuck yeah. Did that noise necessarily translate into critical acclaim or mainstream success? Not entirely.

Interestingly enough, MC Ren was actually quite intelligent and political in his music, both his raps in NWA and his later solo releases. I think the cerebral aspects of NWA are subtle. Songs like "100 Miles and Running", "Dopeman", "Fuck the Police", "Approach To Danger", "Appetite for Destruction", "Boyz In Da Hood", were all very political, very critical of society and socio-economics of American life, very much reflective of the gritty, low-life, pessimistic approach of being poor and living in ghetto America in the Reaganomics era. Yes the music was crude, violent, and hopelessly misogynistic, but interestingly enough, that was sort of the point, so that their music was bordering on ghetto fabulous satire. It was a way to be able to find a way to laugh at otherwise totally not funny shit.
