  3. Best review I have seen so far: http://www.passionweiss.com/2016/11/14/a-tribe-called-quest-we-got-it-from-here-thank-you-4-your-service/
  4. I think I checked these guys out once before, you might have mentioned them when you found out about their work with Speech. Good stuff.
  5. These days, that depends on how the music was mastered and on the kind of digital format you use (MP3, FLAC and so on). If all things are optimized individually for the different formats, the CD is better yes, but not as good as vinyl.
  6. That actually looks pretty damn good. Not knowing anything about this movie, I was surprised and delighted by the supernatural twist. Looks like the kind of movies (often set in the holiday season, like this one) they do not make anymore.
  7. She did not join him, he joined her, and she did take a break but has been back for a while
  8. Straight to Netflix is NOT straight to TV or DVD.
  9. I have been listening to Konnichiwa too. It's pretty great.
  10. I mostly listen to music in my car and those CDs have been in my card for a while. That's really it. They're still great albums though.
  11. YG - My Krazy Life, Transit - Joyride, Kacey Musgraves - Pageant Material, August Alsina - This Thing Called Life, J. Cole - Born Sinner
  12. If you think that this track wasn't big success for what it was, you really don't understand the modern music industry. Millions of clicks, multiple appearances on all the big blogs, a Beats1 World Record - that's big. Single charts are largely for acts catering to soccer moms and tweens.
  13. 01. Spraynard - Mable (Emo/Punk/Alternative) 02. J. Cole - Forest Hills Drive (Hip Hop) 03. Kacey Musgraves - Pageant Material (Country) 04. Fetty Wap - Fetty Wap (Hip Hop) 05. Fashawn - The Ecology (Hip Hop) 06. Pusha T - Darkest Before Dawn (Hip Hop) 07. August Alsina - This Thing Called Life (R&B) 08. Dr. Dre - Compton (Hip Hop) 09. Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment - Surf (Jazz/Hip Hop/Soul/Electronic) 10. Tinashe - Amethyst (R&B) Yes, I'm putting Pusha T on there purely based on faith. Haven't listened to Gibbs yet and I haven't given enough to the Mac Miller album and the Oddisee album, but whatever.
  14. ​I'm very much of the same opinion. He doesn't need to preach it, per se, but I think that there's no gain or benefit to him doing it, so why start now? I almost think he didn't say the word completely, but the point remains that he has so much equity built up in how he's approached rhyming that I would hate to see it dropped. Especially now that people have really moved away from hard lyrics. No one is clamoring for the G-Unit types anymore. If anything, much of popular hip hop has gotten over the "coolness" of a curse. ​what about the success of the straight up compton movie and the success of the new dr dre album? there's still some gangsta rap in mainstream today ​I think those are outliers. Important ones, absolutely, but not the trend. They all come back to a group that paved the way in that realm. It's not critical mass like it was ten years ago, where it's the norm. ​Except Fetty Wap's album and singles dominate everything this year. And YG made huge waves in 2014. Gangsta Rap is as big as it always was. The difference is that modern listening habits and distribution platforms allow for more than one thing to be big, which was not so much the case in '04.
  15. This interview is amazing. Some people who are stuck in the past when it comes to Hip Hop and Will's music might be surprised.
  16. ​as 90's as it might look the fashion is very contemporary too
