I've decided that I like Waka, simply because his music makes me uncomfortable.

I think this is pretty much why everyone likes Waka.

why do people insist on liking die antwoord
Their music videos are fan-fucking-tastic.

Also, it's a really funny joke.
I just saw their newest video. Case in point. For god's sake, it includes a significant passage in Xhosa where a young man proclaims his unwillingness to participate in the circumcision and coming of age ritual traditionally expected of him, because he's too much of a baller to give in to peer pressure.

Me, the thing I worry about with them (which I might have mentioned on here) is the fact that they seem to have far more visual artists on the staff than actual musicians, and that tis has led to them either already tumbling into style>>substance or is sailing dangerously close to the wind on that count. And while I think this is the best Waddy has done in his long career as doyen of SA rap, the rapping never rises above serviceable.

i know i'm sometimes on some hyperbole when i hear stuff for the first time (which i then usually later regret), but THIS is really good.  assuredly.  (if it's any help, dude is e-40's son.) (via tumblin erb)
i also just copped mic strange's da bootlegz vol. 6 (available over at dat piff), and so far i'm really impressed, but that's not surprising given what i've heard from him already.

Not enough The Appeal in thread.  I seem to recall you being vaguely anti-Gucci, Antero?  Have you heard it?  It really won me over.

I don't want to say I'm anti-Gucci per se, I more just don't really care about what he's doing.  We're moving in different directions.  If I met him at a cocktail party we would have very little to talk about.

I ain't following mixtapes worth a shit this year, so it's mostly just the hyped records I've been tying anchor to, and fuck if I am not totally on board with everything Kanye's doin' of late.

Especially "Take One for the Team" which is the best G.O.O.D. Friday thing yet. Earns its extended two minute outro with a keyboard line from the neon superbrain.

Yeah, I heard about that last night, fucking crazy. Motivated me to put on E&A last night for the first time in a while, and although I'm not the hugest fan, I was reminded how talented the guy was. Fucked up.

As for my hip-hop lately, I've mostly just gone back to listening to Ghostface after buying Ironman, and I've realized that Supreme Clientele is like the last LP of his I don't have. I need to correct this.

Also put on that Freddie Gibbs mixtape midwestgangstaboxframecadillacmuzik again last night, and shit, if anyone still hasn't heard this, well you oughta. Really need to give his other mixtapes more of a listen, cuz the dude is amazing.

Edit: Also, Lil B is awesome

Yeah I don't know how the hell it happened, but his most lauded album ended up being the one left out in the end.

And I kinda lied because I don't own Bulletproof Wallets or his last one.

Neither of those are vital.  Bulletproof Wallets was hamstrung by sample clearance issues in a couple places, and The Wizard of Poetry is... well... it is what it is.

I got love for both of them but it's true they aren't really vital. "Flowers" is the song that particularly stands out where you're like "something very important is missing from this song"

Hmmm, i seemed to have found the original version within a couple seconds. i love the internet. Wow, it's way better.

I just created a custom-made "original" version of Bulletproof Wallets. It's way more consistent now. I've only listened to it once but I think it could get in the top 3 ghost along with Supreme and Pretty Toney.

The songs one needs are:
The Sun
Forrest (Original Version)
Flowers (Original Version)
The Watch
Good Times (pt.1)

and they are all available for free here: http://www.wutang-corp.com/media/downloads.php

pretty neat.

That really sucks about Eyedea!  I had not heard about that at all.


And though it seems a little awkward to say in the next breath, what does everybody think about Revolutions Per Minute?  I'm just hearing it for the first time right now and I'm really digging it.  I did a search of the forum though and didn't see any mention of Reflection Eternal since around the middle of last year.

i've been listening to ironman a lot lately, so this is a cool coincidence.  why don't more people talk about that album?  i know in older-dude-new-york hip hop circles it gets A LOT of praise--in fact it's sometimes called his best album--but other than that it seems left out of the conversation, similar to tical, which we've touched upon a few times.
i never thought pretty toney was that good, way too overproduced for me (though of course, as with anything ghostface, it has some jaw-dropping shit on it). seems like it was just a place where a lot of people our age started with ghost, so it has a sentimental value. but i'm going to take your advice, babar, and do this original version of bulletproof wallets.  for anyone else doing this, here's a link to tracklist of the original (i think).
that screwed version of "money in the sky" is wonderful (already an astoundingly great song).  if you check the tag for "babe rainbow," soho has a link to a screwed tape babe did with a bunch of good material.
revolutions per minute was good but not terribly noteworthy, mainly because it's impossible not to listen to that record in light of genuine classic train of thought.  the only thing i can really remember other than, "hey this is a damn good record considering the expectations, and it gives me hope for a new black star joint," is that jay elec verse on "just begun," which is stuuuuupid fresh (actually that whole song is like whoa).  i'll have to go back and give it another listen to see if i still feel the same way about it.
how come eyedea never blew up?  he was arguably the best pure emcee out of that entire pack of early 00s alt-rappers (except maybe sage francis, who became somewhat of a star).  i never really dug his stuff, though i never heard oliver hart, and i've been told that that's the place to start.
loving good fridays ("so appalled" is my favorite so far).  kanye is an absolute beast. he's been using the past two years to repeatedly prove that he's top twenty.

Kanye's Runaway film is pretty fucking odd.  Certainly, he seems to be the only person around with rock star ambition, so I gotta love him for that.  Also, the music is generally of higher quality than the Good Friday stuff, especially the last song in it.  There will be at least one fucking awesome cut on the new album.

yeah that was sort of huge disaster (city of angels, right?).
the only truly redeeming part of it was the michael jackson face float, and the line "do you know she's a bird?" followed by kanye deadpanning "nah i never noticed that."
but i have to give credit for ambition, and for out lady-gaga-ing lady gaga, if you know what i mean.
it would have been better if the model had been a real bird.
