  1. Great find! It amazes me how many people count Will out after all of these years. smh.... Would love to hear all the records they did together!
  2. Wow I hope you'll get the track AJ. Nice work guys digging up some research. It's amazing the things we'll do just to hear a new or unreleased JJFP track!
  3. It's weird how there would even be the duration of the track listed too. Homebase is an amazing album - it's really my goto album during the summer. Trapped on the Dance Floor is such a dope track, love how Jeff spits on it too. I wonder what ever happened to El Sid and Jazz Fresh? Their verses were real impressive. Back to the topic at hand, we need to ask Jeff if "Let's Party" exists. haha
  4. It's the summertime and I've been listening to the Homebase album a lot recently. I was just looking online and I see that on the LP/Cassette version of the album that there's a bonus track called "Let's Party". This is the very first time I'm hearing about this. Does anyone know if this is legit? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homebase_(album)
  5. Awesome, I have to say I'm definitely surprised. I'll be ordering this soon!
  6. Great post. Hopefully as time goes on more interviews and performances are posted on YouTube.
  7. This is from December 10, 1998. I feel as the author's timing is off about some things but this article is an EXCELLENT read. One thing that amazes me through the years is that Will is very consistent with what he says. For example, he was just on Kimmel back in February talking about how he was on tour with Run-DMC in Japan with 50,000 people going wild - well that is in this article. 16 years ago! This is just a real in-depth read. Will talks about some of his upbringing, dark times in his life, his drive...etc. Love it. http://www.rollingstone.com/movies/news/big-willie-style-19981210
  8. Kev - did you get that hoodie at H&M? I think I have the same exact one ...haha! @Julie - what bad YouTube comments?
  9. Great news Kev....glad you got to hang out with them and chat about music. It seems like this year is the year we'll finally hear something new. He spit a new verse over the Clique beat in Toronto so we're on to something! This is definitely some great news. I'm looking forward to the Dayne Jordan album too, especially coming off his EP which was spectacular.
  10. ​Hope you can get some info! lol I always feel weird asking him stuff like that - I know I probably shouldn't but I feel like people ask him all the time. haha
  11. haha Tim, I was trying to figure out the lyrics myself. It's definitely a new verse from what I gather. I think if it wasn't new, we'd all be able to quickly identify the corresponding song. Hopefully this is the year! Also - I really hope the Vinyl Destination crew got footage of this performance!
  12. Holy crap - that could be a new verse Will is spitting. I love how he's rapping over the Clique beat! WOW!
  13. I absolutely love this. It's a brilliant concept and fun show!
  14. I think Will is just exploring different production styles and experimenting a bit. After all, that is what he said a couple months ago right? That's why he was with Calvin Harris last summer and Kanye West the past couple of years. I think Jeff will always be involved musically - as he should be. I agree though, I want production handled by Jeff over anybody else. No matter how credible or popular they are, Jeff is the #1 guy. After 10 years, it's just hard to keep the faith about Will returning to rap. Yes, there's been surprise shows here and there and little pieces of news that Will is recording, it's just hard to believe it until I see it. What really annoys me is we'll hear some of this but then all of a sudden it's squashed because Will signs on to another movie role. As hard as it is for me, I'm trying to be optimistic and I guess the good news is that it seems more likely than ever that he's going to release something.
  15. Well I haven't seen anything yet that has said it's a fake.
  16. Exactly. Also the absence of new music defeats the entire premise of Lost & Found. He said the rapper was lost to the actor and he never fully reached his potential as a rapper. As good as the album was, you can't just say that and not drop anything new after that. It just bums me out.
  17. I think that's fake. Remember we went through this 2 years ago when Yeezus was about to be released. Ugh..
  18. I've actually been listening to the album on repeat the last week or so. It's crazy how it's been 10 years since this album came out. Who would've thought 10 years later, we'd still be waiting for a follow-up album. It's just so disheartening when I think about that fact. Ok back to the album. My favorite track is definitely Party Starter. This hasn't changed since I first heard the album. It sucks how long Interscope waited to release a second single. I remember it felt like all-eternity while Switch soared and remained at the top of the charts. If I remember correctly, Party Starter had a short run on the charts and I used to hear it on the radio too. Tell Me Why should've definitely been the second single as planned. What was the reason again? It was "too political" or something? That's just BS to me. I'm not going to do a track-by-track review but I'd give this album a 8/10. The core of the album is definitely Ms.Holy Roller, Tell Me Why, Lost & Found, I Wish I Made That/Swagga...those 4 songs are rock solid in-terms of lyrics and substance. A few songs like Scary Story and Chosen One (great lyrics - horrible beat), Switch (Reggae Remix) bring the album down in my opinion. I also wish some of the tracks were longer. Songs like Here He Comes, I Wish I Made That/Swagga (2 songs in 1 - wish it was 2 full length songs) are great but just too short. I feel like some of Will's best tracks are entirely short songs. Willenium for exampe had the Interlude on the song Potnas...that beat was incredible but why just a minute long? Born to Reign the title track was under 2 minutes...come on Will! I also wish Will's second verse on Pump Ya Brakes was a lot better. He could've done much more with it. Too much "boy this, girl that.." in my opinion. However, my biggest disappointment is the lack of Jazzy. I wish he had done production work for more than one track. Overall, this was a good album and it was a strong comeback album for Will.
  19. Looking forward to this. As long as they keep everything as original as possible, I'm on board. Maybe we can finally hear some of the material he did with MC Hammer such as that song 'Too Late Playa'. I just don't want another 2004 Loyal to the Game compilation. That was really, really bad.
  20. Yes AJ, the Brand New Funk Live version on CD is something that jumped out to me. That's a nice little surprise. Honestly though, I just think the whole project is sort of cheap. While it's great to have new remastered stuff, it's sort of pointless given all of the other compilations. The artwork alone just turns me off. It just seems like there wasn't any effort put into this.
  21. That is pretty cool. I'd love to ask Jeff one day what the relationship was between JJFP and 2pac and Biggie. That's one hell of an all-star cast. AJ, what's the source of this?
