  1. I never thought of Smooth B fro Nice & Smooth as a solo artist. Greg Nice was always the more lyrical one with a stronger presence...but I was wrong. Smooth B just dropped a solo song and I love it! SMOOTH B - Before (2020)
  2. PETE ROCK + C.L. SMOOTH - Straighten It Out Mecca & The Soul Brother (1992)
  3. Nice! I've never seen this clip before!
  4. We got new Dru Hill, too! I miss the original lineup, but good music is good music. DRU HILL - What You Need (2020)
  5. Jo Jo just released a solo single. The urban AC sound is a little boring and the auto-tune touches are unnecessary, but it's good to hear something new from him. He excels better in a group, but it's good to hear something new from him. JO JO - Special (2020)
  6. Man, I couldn't just leave this as what I was listening to. This deserved a post of its own. Check out Rakim's Tiny Desk Concert. After this, I'd love to hear him do an album with all live instruments.
  7. Chico did well in the late 90's, but I never really listened to him. I'm revisiting it, really listening to it for the first time, and I'm liking what I'm hearing. CHICO DEBARGE - The Game The Game (1999)
  8. Why aren't more of y'all into this album? They just dropped a remix of "Bad Name" featuring Method Man and Redman! http://premierwuzhere.com/videos/gang-starr-feat-method-man-redman-bad-name-remix/?fbclid=IwAR1StuxPZ3H98vOqOAFm4TIyFRiJy4Tg_jouM01QC0k217eFSI2OCWK51hA
  9. I can't remember the last time I genuinely loved a hardcore Hip-Hop track this much. LORDS OF THE UNDERGROUNG w/ ONYX - What's Up (2020)
  10. I wasn't much of a Biggie fan, but I did love this song on first listen! I never saw the movie Phat Beach, but I recently got the soundtrack. I instantly fall in love with this song. DEF JEF - 80 Ways Phat Beach soundtrack (1995)
  11. I'm not into sports, so I didn't follow Kobe, but I remember when he was working on an album in the late 90's/early 2000's that never came out. Rest easy. Prayers for his family. KOBE BRYANT w/ TYRA BANKS - K.O.B.E. (2000)
  12. If Heavy D isn't in your top, I don't really care about your Hip-Hop related opinions. HEAVY D & THE BOYZ - Who's The Man Blue Funk (1992)
  13. I was digging through a used music store yesterday and someone unloaded their D'Angelo CD singles and a live EP. These remixes and live cuts are reintroducing me to one of my favorite albums in a new way. D'ANGELO - Brown Sugar Brown Sugar (1995)
  14. Man, maybe I need to see it again. I thought it was alright. Just alright. It didn't feel like a Bad Boys movie to me. I thought some of the dialogue and comedy was weak and forced. The beginning of it felt very rushed. Dipping into the super natural was just weird. Poorly singing "Bad Boys" is only funny for so long. I don't see a lot of Michael Bay films, but I feel that the Bad Boys movies were where he excelled and I miss his directing style and use of color lighting. I really hate that one bold decision they made. Since I no longer have expectations for it, maybe I'll enjoy it more
  15. I love his flow on "Godzilla". He seriously races the rhyme as you get into the song. I just find the beat hard to swallow. The guy on the hook does nothing for me. He sounds like everyone on urban radio.
  16. I've previewed it. It didn't grab me as much as his first few albums, but I did at least generally like what I heard. I haven't gotten into the lyrics yet. Like most of his recent projects, the production goes from bad to good. I do love "Darkness".
  17. Now I'm falling down the Freestyle hole... PAJAMA PARTY - Yo No Se Up All Night (1989)
  18. I was just introduced to this song. I'm pretty sure I never heard it before as a kid. I'm a big fan of Freestyle music and always want to explore, but never seem to have the time. This just dropped in my lap. Strangely, this particular song isn't sung by the actual artist (though he did perform it live). It's actually sung by Elan Lanier. NOLAN THOMAS - Yo, Little Brother Yo, Little Brother (1984)
  19. Yes, it's from Word 2. The song was done before He's The DJ, I'm The Rapper. The verse from it made it into the live version of "Brand New Funk." https://www.discogs.com/Various-Word-2/release/1540930
  20. House Party is a classic. I wouldn't want it any other way, but there's no denying that a JJ+FP version would have been just as good.
  21. If he doesn't want to commit to an album yet, he should just drop singles on a regular basis. All the songs we've heard on his social media that hasn't released are a missed opportunity.
  22. I really loved this movie. I can't believe it didn't grab more hype. I also can't believe that anyone pays any attention to critics anymore. With the internet anybody can be a critic. The Blu-Ray/DVD release is January 14th, so I can't wait to pick it up. Buying it is the best way to give the film some extended life.
  23. What's up, friends. Tim has been kind enough to keep this forum active in a time when message boards just aren't that popular anymore. Adult life can suck and take up some time, but I'm wondering if some of us could make it a point to use the forum more frequently. As we closed out another year, I was thinking about times happier and more carefree. Those times involved good music, good people, and socializing here (and elsewhere on the internet). I'm wondering who else might commit to checking the forum and posting more frequently. It's almost a slap in the face for Tim to keep the forum u
  24. I recently got Camila's album. I'm digging this pop/R&B release. CAMILA CABELLO - Liar Romance (2019)
