  • I'm totally digging this J. Earle guy from S. Carolina lately.

    J. Earle - Top of the World
    J. Earle - Go Hard part 2
    J. Earle - Eyes Wide Shut
    And just cuz... who the F samples Journey? It works though. J. Earle - In The Sky

    This is a great thread. I've totally gotten back up to speed with Hip Hop just checking out everyone's picks. Thanks all! I don't feel quite so old and out of touch anymore! :th2thumbs:
    So you're admitting I'm a celeb...

  • Oh and Yeezus is pretty good for me
    but I have been listening to a lot more EDM over the last few years and that last song is the only typical hip hop song the rest has a really grimy minimal dancehall feel...that song blood on the leaves is dope... kinda trappy
    His basic ass flow never has quite done it for me but he's got some good lines on this one

  • I'm just waiting on 3 projects, The Jay-Z one, Freddie Gibbs, and Dream Chasers 3

    :( I got atleast 2 weeks before I"m satisfied.

    I checked out the J. Cole album, it was okay, certainly wasn't gears towards me but there was a few cool tracks.

    I've given it a couple more listens. Still wouldn't say I'm a fan of it, but I guess it's not totally as offensive as it was the first time around. Some tracks have potential to grow on me I guess. I guess people need to push the boundaries sometimes or else we don't ever evolve, but this just feels like it over shot the mark by a few miles...

    So Zeb and Peaches will probably fricken love it.

    There's one track where he just screams and breathes heavy for like 3 minutes straight. It's definitely not "everything I'm not (makes me everything I am)". It's more like "AAAAAARRRRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! LOOK AT ME!!!!!!! I'M BEING WEIRD!!!!!!!! BOOGA BOOGA BOOGAAAAAAA!!!!!"

    About the only bands i would pay $124 to see would be Led Zeppelin or Pink floyd or something and even then i would bitch about the price.

    Yeah, I think for now he's gettin while the gettin's good. We'll see what his staying power is. I'm hoping for the best. I fully expect he'll do all kind of free/crazy public appearances and publicity stunts in the future, it just depends on whether people still care or not. Pop fans are fickle.
