  1. It could also be that he is just one of those rapers that cannot get their ish together to properly tackle all that has to be done. It happens way too often.
  2. They have been in the studio together so music exists
  3. I think it is a good album. I guess it is just not the Will Smith people wanted at the time, which is why it has a bad reputation. That never affected me though. I do think some of the production was very much a product of it's time and did not age very well, for example songs like Act Like You Know. However, songs like Maybe, 1000 Kisses and Block Party are still some of my favorite songs of all time. Especially 1000 Kisses and Maybe exemplify what is still so great about the album. This album was never about spitting and ironically the songs that focus less on that turned out to be the most timeless ones, at least in my opinion. My favorite track is probably Nothing On My Mind, which sadly wasn't on all versions of the album. Also, I love Tra-Knox.
  4. I guess I mostly listen to and buy CDs because I do most my music listening in my car and I have no option to hook up a phone or anything like that.
  5. My cable company pays for my Spotify so that is what I use. It is very useful, especially to check out new albums or to listen to some albums or songs you don't really want to own because you'll be done with them after a few times. However, I'm not sure I would pay for it myself, cause I might as well spend those 120€ a year on CD's. I might sign up to Apple Music because all my music basically runs through iTunes and because their family sharing policy is amazing. Suddenly it's 5€ or less a person a month to use it, which is pretty damn great. As for buying music, I usually buy CD's because they are often actually no more than 10€ these days, which means buying them digitally isn't even cheaper. For some records, I buy the vinyl copies, which now usually come with a digital code and often do not cost more than like 15€. I buy less than I used to, but not because of streaming, just because I realized I bough too many CDs and actually listened to too few of them.
  6. I think the problem with him is that he doesn't really sound all that interesting. It's a well made and stuff but it does not grab me at all.
  7. 1. I somehow don't remember Stacey Dash being on the show - who did she play again? 2. She tops my list.. always lol.-MC

  9. I want an album now. It's a bad name tho.. Not only is there a TV show with that name, there was even an actual R&B group with that name
  10. All of this is just terribly bad business that is much to common in the Hip Hop industry. However, I will listen to that album.
  11. Ratchet is absolutely terrible, if it would have been on the radio it would have been the worst song on there, that's how bad it is
  12. I think the Wu-Tang album is awesome. I listened to it today and everything is on point. Sure it sounds different but I like it a lot.
  13. Fab is underrated as an MC because his albums were so weak. The Soul Tapes are okay, but also a bit boring. Breathe however is one of the greatest Hip Hop tracks of the last 15 years.
  14. I agree the production has been questionable so far, but I kind of like this song. If this would not be tied to an album called G.O.A.T. 2 it would be no problem at all. It's solid mixtape material that I would not skip if it would come on in the car. Also, I'm Nice was hard as hell, people are still talking about it.
  15. My Crazy Life was my favorite Hip Hop album. I did not pay much attention to R&B but my girlfriends played the Tinashe album a lot and it sounded good to me.I have yet to hear the J. Cole album tho. Souls of Mischief album was good too, as was Open Mike Eagle's new album.
  16. Yeah when Ariana tries to be 'sexy' it seems very akward, it always makes me laugh
  17. Yeah I remember when J. Cole went there to talk to the people protesting in the weeks after the incident
  18. Mario 3D World is great, you can play it in co-op too Brakes, might be great for your and your family. Oh and thanks for adding me Kev.
