    New Album?

    Ya, I just checked Allhiphop as I usually do before getting here and I gotta say: Illseed is definitely off when it comes to politics (he believes 9/11 is a conspiracy) but when he gets to rumors about hip hop, he's usually right.

    What is your Jay Z fave album?

    It's tough. I was really on American Gangster. I really enjoyed much of the Blueprint. Reasonable Doubt was awesome, but a little before my time. I really like the one Volume with "It's Hot"--the diss at 50 that made me smile. But, yes, just because of everything surrounding it...The Black Album It's probably because he released it at the very, very end of high album sales....and riiiight before ringtone rap. He got everyone to know all the lyrics to all his songs. Somehow everyone knows each song on the album if they hear it. That is rare. And the content was quite good. Simple rhyming, as always (well except for American Gangster) but awesome content.
  5. last year when my college had napster (legal version), they didn't even have it. I don't use apple products (sansa mp3 player) and i've tried local record shops. i'll have to keep hunting (online retailers are usually a very last resort)
  6. i never heard the got to be real... someone very interested in letting me hear it?>
  7. i listened to it... awhile ago i think it's along the same lines as "where y'all at" that came out months before the hiphop is dead album. it's a street tester and will be left off the album. I love the one beat Toomp did for him, that you can find on forums... give nas time, he never fails

    Grandparents just don't understand

    YOU STOLE MY TOPIC. haha, no really, I've been meaning to put up a topic about Itsthereal.com Go to their site, I am a huge fan and have watched their videos since it debuted a year ago. Some of their funniest hip hop comedy sketches include "Lloyd Banks retirement party"...."Deconstructing Jay-Z"...."Deconstructing Biggie: UPS is hiring"...."Ghostwriters on Strike" It seriously is awesome. I love their show. if you go to their fanpage on facebook.... http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Real/11314775655 I have a review up on it myself about the show's greatness lol.
  9. there should be an official NHL discussion board. YA FLYERS
  10. Ok, good. I was beginning to wonder if I was the only one who derived such a meaning from the original title.

    Jay-Z Freestyle Diss

    he's doing a diss towards deshawn's deal in the NBA. :stickpoke:
  12. Hip Hop and its remix are great.... the problem is.... the rest of his album goes back into the same gun, sex, drugs references.
  13. This song is absolutely awesome. Just try and name all the lyricists on this...more than what I wrote, or the website...Styles, Busta, Neyo? It's awesome. http://www.hiphopdx.com/index/audio/id.469...op-the-violence I wish this was more prevalent in Hip Hop.
  14. :wickedwisdom: Down 15? not a problem with andre miller at point!
  15. that's a double negative, so it actually is right for once. :stickpoke:
  16. Starting at 6pm EST, The sixers begin their run through the east to the finals. Sorry detroit fans, it's going to be our turn.

    Big Will VS Fresh Prince

    I know Elvis may not like this...but how much more does Will got to do to be knighted the "King"? :fencing:
  18. Ok, it's obvious I'm biased and do not like 50 Cent but to be fair I spent alot of time listening to "Curtis" to try and be objective. Kanye's "Graduation" is much easier to listen to, as it would be for anyone of us. Anyway, first "Curtis": 01. Intro-Actually brought me to expect a "Reasonable Doubt" theme from the album just because of the mafia tones... 02. My Gun Go Off- Typical G-Unit with hard guitar and tight strings. Very forgettable. 03. Man Down- Again with the strong G-Unit heavy block-bass with chimes. A little synthesizer and piano. Mentions pergatory but goes nowhere with the story. 04. I'll Still Kill featuring Akon- Extremely hot production. The choppy beat is one of Akon's best. 50 Cent actually flows decently on this. Really powerful stuff. Decent. 05. I Get Money- We've all heard this. Hot production, good choice to follow Akon's best work. 06. Come & Go Feat. Dr. Dre- No real vocals from Dre except "Kick Em Out." This was what 50 referred to as "In Da Club pt. 2"...I can see why. A different feel. Choppy strong, high pitch cord with classic Dre bass-backed piano. Trumpets placed well. Very powerful from 50. Again, a surprise. 07. Ayo Technology Feat. Justin Timberlake- We've all heard this one too. As much as I dislike Timbaland...it's catchy as hell. Timberlake is growing on me just for his work on Kweli's album. Enjoyable flow. 08. Follow My Lead Feat. Robin Thicke- Another song that's a single with music video. Funny to think Will Smith was collaborating with the same artist. Simple production with good flow. Would be classy if not for his male-ego rhymes. 09. Movin On Up- Another G-Unit block-based bass track with metal clang. Forgettable. Really terrible themes regarding people's daughters. 10. Straight to the Bank Feat. Tony Yayo- Old in retrospect. I guess people like it. I never felt the song. We've heard it though. 11. Amusement Park- Failure of a song. Really lazy and thus the reaction this song has recieved. 12. Fully Loaded Clip- Dre saves this track a little with the production. The creativity of this song is along the lines of "Ghetto Quaran" so....it's tolerable. 13. Peep Show Feat. Eminem- 2 chords, one swish sound tied to an 808 drum and one shallow electric guitar set. 50 seems threatened on every track he's on with Eminem. Faster pace than usual...It feels like an Eminem written hook though. Eminem ABSOLUTELY MAILS-IN THE LYRICS. Pointless, idiotic stuff. 14. Fire Feat. Nicole Scherzinger and Young Buck- Feels like a beat that would better suit and young-up-n-coming two-step kid. One line he says is " You can hate it but face it, Tupac and Biggie aint around." Ouch. Nicole is more of an ear-sore than 50 on this song. Young Bucks placement is good. 15. All of Me Feat. Mary J. Blige- Another G-unit block-bass beat. YOU'D THINK 50 would say something creative with Mary J. on the track. Very recycled flow and rhyme. 16. Curtis 187- Feels like a combination of an Eminem-backed beat and a late 80's beat. That's the only real thing to mention. Forgettable except for the minor treat to old school feel. 17. Touch The Sky Feat. Tony Yayo- Initially feels like it could be something special. Nice shout out to Biggie and Pac....but then it's a dance song. Ugh. Yayo makes me have a headache. Talking about myspace pages. WOW. Album Rating: *1/2 A star for good production on half the album, and a half for an attempt on good flow for a quarter of the album... Now for the fun: Kanye West- "Graduation": 01. Gord Morning- Piano plus soothing beat and harmonic strings. Great way to enter the cd. A little too strong on the vocals for such a track. But all in all a great start. 02. Champion- I love the sample from Steeley Dan. A Shoutout to "WILL SMITH AND HIS SON".. :wickedwisdom: Very fun track. 03. Stronger- The DRUMS ARE REDONE BY TIMBALAND...AND SUCK. ALL HE DID WAS COMPLETELY BLOW THE BASS OVERBOARD. IT'S GOING TO KILL MY SPEAKERS. meh 04. I Wonder- MY FAVORITE TRACK This sample is amazing. He didn't mess with it either so it's really great. The violins are a proof that Kanye learned from his co-producer (and composer) of his last album. So soulful.... 05. Good Life Feat. T-Pain- I don't like T-Pain. I don't like T-Pain. I don't like T-Pain. I...LOVE...this song. It's true. Perfect use of T-Pain. Shoutout to Philly in this. Just a thankful song mentioning how good life is. A Michael Jackson distorted sample. 06. Can't Tell Me Nothing- It's an anthem that's awesome. I just wish he woulda opted out of the whole Jeezy ad-lib. 07. Barry Bonds Feat. Lil' Wayne- Weakest song on the album. It feels like a really bad throwaway mixtape track. Interesting production...again really thrown together. Lil Wayne is lazy. 08. Drunk and Hot Girls Feat. Mos Def- This song's beat coulda worked for a more gangsta rap artist. But it's creative and dark. I like Kanye on this. Unfortunately, Mos Def doesn't rap...only sings. Creepy track that is growing on me. Theme is weird but I like it. 09. Flashing Lights Feat. Dwele- Wow, what a way to produce a song. Again amazing combination of Hip Hop and composing. Synthesizers are pretty well placed. I like the theme of star-struck, overwhelmed rich women. 10. Everything I Am Feat. DJ Premier- Tight, but simple scratches on point...with distinct piano instrumental and light bass. Very simple yet leaves the door open for Kanye to deliver quality lyrics. And he does. Really introspective. 11. The Glory- Very soulful with a sample that isn't but fooled me as a Jackson 5 sample...again, it isn't. I believe this was supposed to be on Common's Cd but was left off. Fun. Lyrically not too special. 12. Homecoming Feat. Chris Martin- It FEELS soo much like Elton John is on the piano. I SWEAR. Maybe it's me whacked out late in my dorm but my dad's extensive Elton John collection hits me over the head on this song. Martin is subdued. Better, much better than Jay's collab with Martin. Fun track that is just something to play in your house for the next 30 years. Has such a 1970's piano, english-pop feel. I love it. "Do you think about me now and then? Cause I'm coming home again. Baby, do you remember when fireworks at Lake Michigan?" :wiggle: Kanye pays hommage to his home. My second favorite track easily. 13. Big Brother- Kanye makes an emotional song with the sound of another "Encore" feel....and is a song who's theme is dedicated to Jay-Z. Very honest, soul-exposing song. Production-wise, I enjoy Encore and this equally as Kanye's most enjoyable production. Not too much...Not too little. Album Rating: **** 4 Stars for great production, flow, and themes. Not a five because of the terrible change to a fun "Stronger" and the horrendous "Barry Bonds." Everything else was near-perfect. I say this year so far, the top albums are: 1. Ear Drum-Talib Kweli 2. Finding Forever- Common 3. Graduation- Kanye West I hoped you enjoyed the review...
  19. I say we get a petition signed to stop the damn voice modifier. FIRST T-Pain. Then Snoop. Then Usher. Then Lil Wayne. IS THERE AN END IN SIGHT??? Oh and while we're at it, let's ban the kiddie-production loops. I mean the soulja boy instrumentals, lolipop instrumentals, the usher instrumentals (that polow da don refuses were from garage band although a youtube video by a 15 year old shows it is in fact the same loops on garage band)...really anything that feels like it belongs on a cartoon channel rather than a hip hop song...and then for it to go and be rapped over about sex, drugs, and alcohol just makes my brain explode.... sorry for the absolutely off-topic rant. i just think t-pain has infected hip hop with this absolutely terrible form of singing that is catching like wildfire.

    The Game disses Soulja Boy?

    :yeahthat: He's one of my favorite rappers. He's better then a lot of 'em. Hurricane Chris, Jibbs, Soulja Boy, 50 Cent, Mike Jones, Three 6 Mafia... Have you been bumpin "Big Dreams" for the last 4 weeks like me? lol

    The Game disses Soulja Boy?

    Come on, Game's got talent. He's controversial but he's definitely talented.

    The official MLB thread!

    Every analyst agrees, no more powerful lineup in the MLB than that of the Phils... but it's ok, disagree with the truth.

    The official MLB thread!

    The PHIGHTIN PHILS will win the NL East, like last year...and then the magical run through the playoffs... no one has a more potent lineup at bat. bullpen could use some work but we'll work through it
