    New Essa tune (Yungun) is great. Nice relaxed vibe.

    Currently listening to some french hiphop. This is an album I listened to a lot in college, from '95. I've always loved it. He has a great flow (probably helps it's in french). Good beats too

    Raekwon sez new Wu-Tang album is 'mediocre shit'

    To be frank, as has most of Raekwon's output in recent years, so it's a bit of a glass house.

    Still, he's probably not wrong.

    Yeah, its true. For him to say that must mean its pretty unspectacular.

    Yeah I tend to agree. I like Raekwon a lot, just a shame that most of his decent shit is doing verses on Ghostface albums

    Looking quickly at the first chart, more words doesn't equal better rapper.

    Actually correlates with illuminating adjacency with my aural preferences.

    New People Under the Stairs (out today!) is outstanding.

    Fully sample-based record, sounds so good.

    Life MC - Sounds of the Underground Album.
    On first listen seems pretty solid

    Not the best track off it but the only one on Youtube

    I've yet to try, haven't liked their last three but loved the four before that. The past three have been too slow for me vs the previous ones. Albums like rising down and phrenology had so much more energy.

    Opinions on rap artists using full bands as their live shows versus just dj.

    just watched Kendrick Lamar on tv and he had a full band. Whilst it was good the songs sounded no where near as good as the album. It lost all power to it, no bass etc.

    thinking of artists I've seen and i think generally the nights where it was just a dj and the rapper were better.

    DMX Stratford rex
    nas forum
    ghostface forum
    jay z earls court

    all were crazy and sounded brilliant.

    kanye west
    jay z with band
    nas with band
    k. Lamar (tv)

    were all a bit boring.

    the roots were great live but their music is suited to live.

    Not an album (although there is a slightly weird soundtrack available) but the documentary about Stones Throw - Our Vinyl Weight a Ton - is very interesting, and a bit depressing.

    No worries, although my urgency might have been unnecessary as it seems pt1 is back up again now.

    It's a bit different to the first one. More B sidey if you know what I mean. Still a good listen. The one with Talib is is excellent.

    Somehow missed out on Akrobatik, but he's great. Love these heavy drums (Edan beat).
