  1. I still stand by my Detroit Pistons (even tho I live in Phoenix). They got 3 ppl going to the All-Star game now. I sure wish Jason Maxiell was in the dunk contest.
  2. My top 2007 albums are: 1. Talib Kweli - Ear Drum 2. X Clan - Return From Mecca 3. UGK - Underground Kingz 4. Lupe Fiasco - The Cool 5. Kanye West - Graduation 6. Polyrhythm Addicts - Break Glass 7. Wisemen - Wisemen Approaching 8. Pharoahe Monch - Desire 9. Busdriver - RoadkillOvercoat 10. Black Milk - Popular Demand
  3. You don't like Common? I know Finding Forever is far from his best, but it's about time man gets his just dues.
  4. Dangit, yeah I had just bought my first UGK album yesterday. I am usually weary of mainstream ish, but both rappers have caught my ear lately on guest appearances and I can recognize the skill. Maybe this is a sign to me. Hmmm...anyways, RIP Chad.
  5. You forget an HBO movie called Something The Lord Made which anyone who has seen it will tell you that it is Mos Def's best performance. I can't wait for "Be Kind Rewind" with Mos and Jack Black! Common's getting his weight up in the acting department too.
  6. Okay, Will Smith is obviously number UNO and if you don't count Marky Mark, then Mos Def would be number two.
  7. This is an older album that is just now getting released. It was actually made near the time of "Foundation" but shelved. The album's ok and Brand Nubian is still possibly my favorite group. However, the beats were pretty lousy and can get a little boring if you're not in the right mood for it. There are some dope songs, but not a lot of energy was brought to the table here. It is funny how there's a "Girls, Girls, Girls" on here that Jay-Z would bite the hook for like 3 years later. LOL, that ol' bitin' Jay-Z!
  8. I got in, as the "Wisemen." We need to fill the rest of the league up. So if you're seeing this, JOIN US! (if u know even an inkling about basketball)
  9. U still have room or not? I'm interested. Haven't done one of these in years, but lately I've been following the NBA again, thx to my favorite team the Pistons.
  10. "Stronger" is crazy for about the first minute, then loses its steam as Kanye's rapping gets more mediocre. Listening to the snippets, the first two tracks sound really good to me and #11 and 12, among others. I like "Can't Tell Me Nothin," but there's something missing that keeps me from loving it.
  11. I wanted to give 50 a chance, after I saw him buildin with KRS on Rap City and all, but looking at the song titles and listening to the 30-sec snippets on iTunes, it sounds like he's doing the same 'ol ish. Too bad. I was hoping he'd come a little more grounded. I got a question: if I haven't bought either of Kanye's first two albums and heard them in their entirety, is there any point in buying this one (other than to spite 50)?
  12. This recent album made me appreciate "Be" even more than originally.
  13. Maybe my favorite group ever. Too bad cats on the Amazon boards don't wanna seem to mention them among best groups.
  14. I love both rappers, but I think they should form a more diverse group. Common and Nas possibly. Their styles are different enough, yet both are GOAT candidates.
  15. I have it and it's decent, but nowhere near the top album of this year. It starts out really well the first 5 songs or so but kind of levels off after that. I always appreciate the jazz fusion effort, and this is easily better than Guru's last solo album. Vol.2 is still the absolute classic of the bunch. As far as album of the year, have you heard the new Talib yet? Wait to hear that b4 nominating any other album as best of the year!
