    Doesn't really fit in this thread but I think the new timberlake album is pretty good. I think I'm about 7 songs in and only 1 dud so far. The refreshing thing about it is that timberland seems to have deviated from making every one of his 72,005 previous songs sounding exactly the same

    Make that two duds. Also a lot of it is clearly produced for shitty headphones

    Quoting this since it'd blatantly not get noticed otherwise (thanks to posts about JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE of all people ;) )

    Can any of you recommend that Ice T directed documentary 'Something from Nothing: The Art of Rap'? I fancy a music documentary, last one I had was the ATCQ one.

    Any other music documentary recommendations would be cool too.

    Love this new Large Pro & N.O.R.E. track. Large Pro is on a roll at the minute.

    Brap, brap, old chap.

    Great track Blaketown - not heard either artist before but really liking this.

    Any recommendations where to start with them, LP-wise?

    The Large Pro album from last year, Professor @ Large, was his best since Main Source split in my opinion.

    N.O.R.E. can't really help you with as I've not liked anything he's done since The Infamous.

    So I guess Mobb Deep - The Infamous & Main Source - Breaking Atoms is the way to go really.

    Brap, brap, old chap.

    Yeah they have a lot of dead wood amongst the MCs but Chali2na's solo career has shown that Cut Chemist & DJ Nu-Mark were the most important thing about the group.

    J5 is the ultimate student album. Jayou has been on the playlist of every creative agency ive ever been in.

    J5 are irritatingly accessible, yet undeniably good.

    I do kind of like Charli2na albums, but I think he's the kind of MC who needs other MC around to shine. He's a bit like Busta Rhymes in that he steals the show on every feature, but somehow his solo stuff is a bit boring.

    It's like how peperoni is the best bit on the piza, but you wouldn't want to eat a bit stick of pepperoni.

    Gave it a listen the other day and Speakerboxx is damn fine.

    I significantly prefer The Love Below, but I'm an Andre 3000 nut.

    Speakerboxx is just a good solid pure hip hop album, whereas Love Below is all over the place musically. It's epic.

    I do agree with that somewhat but..... I will always stick speakerboxx on first and my favourite tunes are on there too.

    @Syrette

    I watched this doc, about the rise of crack and hip-hop in the 80s/90s, a few weeks ago and found it pretty interesting. Might be worth checking out.

    So, this Danny Brown fella is rather good, eh? Been listening to a lot of XXX these past few weeks, it's great. Dude's got range too, the album sounds as if it has at least half a dozen guest artists, but it's all him.

    Amazing album - the best of 2011 for me.

    The range he shows on the album and the way he sequences it are both brilliant. When it all finally builds up to '30' at the end it hits like a sucker punch.

    Plus - massive props to anyone who can use music from This Heat and turn it into a hip-hop sample.

    Probably my 3rd favourite hip-hop LP of the last ten years, behind only Madvillainy and Boy in da Corner.

    Love Elmatic. Tend to listen to it more than the original these days. Represent and One Love are particularly strong.

    I've been offered the chance to see Public Enemy, worth going along to watch this or will I find them a bit too mainstream for my tastes?

    When I say "tastes" I'm refering to anything by EL-P (inc all the def jux stuff), Dalek, Aesop Rock etc

    You will love it.

    One of the best live bands around & anything but mainstream.
