  1. Hey Turntable, I don't have either of these albums but these would definitely be the ones to get. Bone THugs N Harmony - 1999 Enternal (or E 1999 something??, it's got "1st of Da Month", "Tha Crossroads" on it.) and Craig Mack's 'Project: Funk Da World' (easy must have of his)
  2. I saw a little bit of this late last night. Will is something else (something good I mean). I saw about a 2 minute preview a few weeks ago of 'Seven Pounds'. I felt confused and kept asking, what in the world is going on? I think this movie will be best if you don't try to guess the ending every which way. That'll take away from it. Instead, just go through the motions with it. We might just be saying "Will Smith has done it again" after this movie comes out.
  3. Pretty good remix Mike. Sounds like The Roots instruments and that Petrow twist. Must be tough to pick between those crazy amount of submissions.
  4. J Period Presents... the Best of MJB Vol. 1: Queen of Hip Hop
  5. It kinda goes both ways guys. It's how you read what Eminem said. He knows what he meant. If he was doing it to be funny, maybe he should've reworded that line. Where's everybody getting made who listened to that song. He said "F*** you too." You (as in the one reading this who listened to Eminem) Where's that attack he put on you for a second? It was a joke. He could've changed up the rhyme a little. Left out saying "so F*** him and f*** you too." Maybe just say cusses over and over in that line and rhymed with "i do". maybe Em was caught up in the moment, and others in the studio liked it, so he left it. Who knows. Seriously think about this tho, Eminem is a WHITE Rapper. Not all that highly receptive mainstream wise. Em cussed to get attention (some find it necessary and some don't). Look at his discorgraphy and lyrics. He was an angry white kid from a low home. What he said, and how said got mass attention. Same way N.W.A. did (who Em was influenced by, and one guy from that group produced for him. Believe his name is Dr. Dre) Eminem can't be that bad. He joked about gays and collab with Elton John. Easy E was gangsta and donated to charities and was invited to the White House somehow. Right off the bat, you know Eminem was comedic with "My Name Is". If anyone remembers the list of artists he thanked at one award show (i forget which one), if JJFP was in the list, drop it. And Will respond because he had his ear to the likes of us. It's a done deal now.
  6. I don't think T.O. will like this. "Great, another person they can throw the ball to instead of me."
  7. Yes. Absolutely awesome track. For a while when I first had that album, I always thought Jazz Fresh was just Will rapping in a different voice. That track makes you feel trapped. You hear every bit of the production. This track helps make me say that Homebase is my favorite JJFP album.
  8. Luigie - When I get things organized, I'll definitely see about going over one of your beats at least once in my life. I've peeped them before, and they got some kinda awesome. Quality - I honestly don't think I'll churn out anymore after this. And it would be criminal to not rap to another Quality beat. Da Brakes - Nah, no bugs. Only thing that will bug me, is will hip hop ever change for the better? Mike - Yeah, we could talk on a more personal note if need be. I got AIM back on my computer, and DSL (so no more slow collabing) Turntable - Trust me, I didn't just decide. I've been weighing it for quite some time. I just don't write like I used to. If I never write again, it'll be ok with me. I won't be totally turn off hip hop, I just won't do it anymore in that sense. I can't be turned off hip hop, cuz I still always smile and laugh or get excited when a hear somebody drop a line that is just so creativity, you doubt anybody else could ever say it like they did. I know I've got them. Most true lyricists have them. That's why you could never be signed and hold yourself as high as Lil Wayne because you came up with something he didn't and probably wouldn't have said as well if he did. The fact that I've got in my head, this is gonna be the last "album" I as FuQ put together, you have no idea the sense of pride I feel from here on out of every single lyric and idea I put to a page. That's why my idea snowballed within my blog of one last album, then make it a double disc, then make it a triple disc. I've got a lot of work & fun ahead of me.
  9. One more, then no more from me. I have decided that I will try to put together one more of my albums, and then I'm personally done rapping. Things have taken a turn. I'm not quite the same, and neither is what's going on around me. I wanted to keep getting better in how I made my albums and what I did with them. That situation stalled out. Let me explain what seemed to be my process. "From The Penn". - That came out at the end of my senior year in high school. Our/My last days captured what was within and around Wash High while I was there. "Writer On The Block" -That was done in my last days (a few months after actually) at Penn Commercial. What's weird about these 2 cds is that they were done while I still had an easy accessible audience. Now I've done cds without that scenario, but that's kind of, I don't know. Now that I don't really have a "phsycial" audience anymore, making music isn't as easy. Then I get consumed by other things that I want to accomplish. I have it in my head that, I'll make this, and if people happen to hear it, ok. If not, that's cool too. But I'll have it available just in case. So I was originally going to call my album "21...Ways To Flow". (a play on Shanice's '21...Ways To Grow - nice album btw). It was going to be all my ideas, lines, songs, etc. that I did when I was 21. That was slow, and I mostly had lines, beats, sample ideas, and song titles. There wasn't enough, considering what I wanted to do. I didn't want song title ideas when I was 21, and lyrics written when I was 22, which I am now. So the only 2 songs to make this "coming of age" album were the title track, and "My Lady". So I was thinking about what could I call my next album. Something I always would freestyle was, "the F is for Fresh, the U for Understanding/ and Q is for Quality, it's what they demanding. So that's my album title. F.U.Q. (Fresh, Understanding, Quality). I've always been known for my flow, so that could be an F alternative. I don't know when I'll have this album done. I really don't know. I'm thinking of maybe a double disc, because I want to do a "Featuring FuQ" too, so maybe that can be disc 2 of this album. Because there are some songs I have added verses to or would like to. Think when I rapped to "Because of You" w/ NeYo. There are some songs I did in the past that most people haven't heard and some ones I haven't done and meant to for the longest time. Maybe do one big collab with all artists I personally know on one track. Basically, since this is my last rap album, I want to make it count. I'm not discontiuing myself music entirely, just not making it anymore. Well, I'm not rapping anymore. I still got music ideas I want to. But that's another blog. F.U.Q. will be a no fear album. Like, should I really rap to this beat? Should I really say this like that? More than likely, it will be beats already heard or put together by artists. But that's ok, because I'm just having fun with it, and not making money off it. I'll probably put together a "Greatest Hits" (if it's ok to call it that). Songs that have "underground hit" in them (sort of) Like I feel they are so good to me for what they were, and what I said or did on it. Maybe that could be disc 3. I'll figure all this out eventually. FuQ [september 15, 2001 - ???] (the date I started rapping, and the date I ended) ----------------------------------------------------------------- Separate from my blog.... One day, I decided to get links to all my songs I ever posted on this forum and save you guys comments/critques. I TRULY Appreciate any bit of time every single one of you ever gave me to listen to my songs and tell me if they're good or not, and what I could try to do to make them better. Every lyric you ever read. Simply I say thank you. Thanks for being so cool. I haven't been at this forum much anymore, but i don't need to tell you that. What I do in a day now, has changed. If I ever did anything to make somebody mad or anything of the sort, I'm sorry. I know for a fact I owe bigted. BIGTED (so you see it) an apology. I'm guessing we don't talk anymore because I didn't use your skit that we did. I didn't want to ask you to redo it cuz I guess I didn't want to slight you like that. When I think back to what I did with everybody else's, which was much later on, I should've had you do it with no background and used what parts worked (which probably would've been most of it). Only 9 people intially got the cd when I finished it. I don't sell in big numbers. Just whoever wants one. I wish my idea for you to record songs would've went better, because as you know, so many people on this forum respect you and would like to hear bigted on the mic at least once. I even thought that if I ever visit my niece & nephew in NJ, I would find a way to visit you and hook up. But that's not to be. (things of which are some my fault, and some with what goes on around me). Not only you, but Mike Petrow in NJ as well. Mike Petrow (this is personally to you, but others may read). When I saw you rap live, I instantly thought, 'It'd be so cool if we could rap live together. I can just imagine the energy and how dope it would be to share a stage and spotlight with someone else who is into to hip hop like me. We'd be the "White Star" per se (even though i'm not all white)to the Black Star (Kweli & Mos Def). The Dynamic. Sometimes, I think you're so good, that I'm jealous. "Organized Mess" is your underground classic. It's your Eminem "Infinite". It's your Nas "Pre-Illmatic". I call it a classic because of the personal you put into that cd when I listened to it. Where was this Mike Petrow when we did "Pass The Mic"? I let one of my friends hear it, and they said "I'll take your music over his(mine) anyday." i told him, you're just not as open-minded as I am. Of course, you're going to get better. But what a way to capture you're current peaking skill level before you do. This is not my tell-all last post, but I felt the need to say whatever now.
  10. Wow!. Truly a shame. Johnny J was awesome. 2pac & him most definitely had super great chemistry in the studio. I'm totally with AJ's points. Most of the post. Pac albums, whenever a certain song would hit and I wondered who did it, in the credits was more than likely Johnny J. And Mr. Petrow, that'd be funny. (in a sense) if those two came back like that. If 2pac were still alive, it could be the other way around. While Johnny J's in jail, 2pac's album is blowing up. (Me Against The World did that.) If Pac were still alive, he'd probably visit Johnny J whenever he could to keep J stong, and he'd still be alive today.
  11. Very very cool. I used to be in the names of "The Elite" he mentioned. :therain: OF course without Silvertiger, no one here would know who Kel Spencer is. (even though there are Will Smith fans who heard "Uhhh" and apparently don't know a dope MC when they hear one.) Anybody at least got any research the other Underground artists he's up against to see what kind of pull they got?
  12. Thanks a lot Luigie & SilverTiger.
  13. Ok cool. Nas with a summer release.
  14. You didn't "Stan' it up. I already like Nas as is, but seeing what you said and describing each track, I won't stall another minute to get it. I love things like comedy and stuff mixed into music. This real "Mixtape" is right up my alley. Nas is DOPE. Period. There's no such thing as over hype for a real emcee.
  15. Da Brakes - Thanks. I must have been typing the thread up while you did that. Schnazz - Thanks. I did 'Hip Hop Love' in 2006. I posted it on the board, so I'm guessing you may not have spotted it.
  16. How is this the soundtrack? Were all these songs played on FPOBA episodes?
  17. That's great. Not only did Will encourage his currents fans of maybe a new album, but he gained street cred and used the word "narcotic".
  18. Add me to the list of one of the ones that like it.
  19. Hey JJFP board, I haven't been by for quite some time. It's been 7 months since I made any new music. From Oct - May. I finally recorded a new song in May, and have put it out to hear in June. It's called "21...Ways To Flow". It's a play off of Shanice's album "21...Ways To Grow", which is really good btw. Because if AJ's got it, you know it's good. The beat was produced by Quality. His production is really amazing. And being a member of the board, you should've heard some of his stuff. His beats match my personality, which is probably why I like them so much. A smooth, laid-back groove. http://www.myspace.com/mikefuq http://www.soundclick.com/fuq It's also on facebook via iLike (for those of you that have it) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 21 is the age, I been turnin' pages, spittin' my flow for days Rhythms in a journal, I know how to narrate It's pain, struggle, hustle, drive I'm tired of livin', just nudging by Judge me why? I got a confidence that sees your perceptions as lies I want to lay with a sexy female, tell her all my dreams Ones not accomplished, those in progress, and ones already happening Suppose to see the age as mature, but I feel like a punk to the core Centered the pain like a Figure Four twisted lives from out the door Takin' my time, find tranqulity in watchin' skyline Tryna get by, a street light beyond the block Beyond endurance of my clock, that ticks and tocks Invert my personal hurt, see 20/partial A mirror fears no feedback that I offer tomorrow I borrow the overease of weed smokers and mix karma The comeback kid with sweet senses and no sorrow Many ways to flow, so follow these creatives you can't borrow as I foreshow, what I started to know 21, got ways to flow It's therapeutic, give me proper regroupin' to get inside Paint pictures via my eyes, my visions are no surprise But leave the average man stupified like Doug Funnie's Quailman, 2nd childhood characters give me a plan Adolescent adult, I keep my faults in a vault but never bury 'em, keep up with the ever-changing America as I try to be everything I wanna be Journey progression, still steppin' and 'Stressin' Destiny' I'm distorted in what's respect, build up with need and neglect I need that reset button to get my mind in check and neglect the balance that feeds personally 21...Ways To Flow, everything in me
  20. Wow, I really like this a whole lot. DJ Green Latern did an awesome job at production. Nas has always been a really strong lyricist, even though he may have put out an album or two that question his personality or intentions. Now an interesting question is, what if Obama isn't elected? Does Nas drop the song off the album or does he change it? I think what would be cool is if Obama does win, a host of MCs should do a remix with this song. One definite would have to be KRS One.
  21. I just think it's stupid to buy an album and only scan it. I always play my cds in full, even if a track is not particular to my liking. But I don't have to worry, because the artists albums who I do buy, never let me down.
