  1. I doubt many people will understand why I feel this way...but Slum Village's Fantastic Vol.2 is one of my favorite albums of all time. There were amazingly smooth beats courtesy of jay Dee and even one from Pete Rock...amazing guest appearances, from the likes of Kurrupt, Q-Tip, DJ Jazzy Jeff himself, Common, Busta Rhymes and D'Angelo...and T3 and Baatin weren't exactly the most complex with their world play or rhyme schemes, but they had a way of rapping with so much style and confidence that even their least profound rhymes would stay stuck in my head for days....and they are ridiculously quotable if you pay enough attention. The content was pretty much about womanizing and materialism, but it was so unique that even during my "conscious rap" phase I listened to it over and over again. I think like millions of people all over the world, just discovered "Off the Wall", I think some hip hop heads should discover this album and realize it's worth....it's sad that two of the people who made it this magical aren't with us anymore.
  2. fair enough... But how much better could the album have been if there were beats and rhymes like some of his recent freestyle joints... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2zgp4eMpxYY http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=80FSJEqB9WM&feature=related http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fk1AECO9VHI&feature=related
  3. It's pretty funny and catchy....I'm not in love with it, but I'm not mad at it either!
  4. Aw...Thanks guys!!!..even though I'm studying for two tests coming up 2morrow, it just feels better when it's my birthday..
  5. If I was still 12, this would be my joint...I kinda feel corny listening to this...good to see em put some effort into his rhyming and throwing a few jokes in there though...
  6. Is the new death cab that good? I dig alternative stuff from time to time and really liked the fleet foxes album...
  7. lol is this infinite era eminem? The phrase "rhyme biter crime fighter", suddenly sparked up my memory...
  8. Ok so that was Kool G Rap with poison...this was later cover in the Roots track "BOOM". Someone else do one...
  9. Travis Barker & DJ AM - Fix your face mixtape
  10. eighties...underrated legend, not often talked about here...I'll give you a hint - this verse was used in two different songs (it was covered by a pretty well respected hip hop act in the early 2000s)...points will be awarded to either answer... A mind designed to find a rhyme thats right on time One step beyond and not behind the line That separates dogs from divine Take it as a caution, or a warning sign Whether antonyms, words Im blending them Homonyms, synonyms, good like m&ms With polo and while hes slicing Ill turn the mikes last name into tyson My brain is like a factory constantly creating Material stitch by stitch for decoration Lyrics are fabrics, beat is the lining My passion in rhyming is fashion designing Now it gets odd it, cause people want to sport it You bought it, if you didnt then you couldnt afford it Poetry full of surprises, its like a game show And my brain glows just like a rainbow Rappers and poets they already know it ****** is a terror not a error and never will I stop reaching for better Whether wheels of steel or reel to reel ***** will make you feel the real deal I usually rap hardcore and I know That yall thinking am I somehow semi, so
  11. Whatever...it's not like he's going to make good music to accompany this attitude. I would rather listen to Biggie commit sin after sin on record than a conscious soulja boy record....
  12. whoa, a little harsh...just a totally different brand of artists...
  13. Too much Neptunes....even though I'm a pretty big fan of Pharrell and Chad. I think their mixtapes are where it's at...
  14. Yeah the Clipse are pretty good...Wish they would rap over grittier beats from time to time tho'...
  15. oops misread the rules, I guess i win!! late eighties...often considered one of the greatest mc's....2nd verse...picked an album track so it might be a bit hard... o I prescribed her, something to revive And surprise her, shes liver and much more wiser Than the light I shine when my brain cells spark, Come to me so we can glow in the dark And soon, you can represent the moon As long as I keep ya in tune Ill tell ya who ya are and why ya here Take it in stride cause it might take a year Its funny - how time flies when ya havin fun We got close and it was almost one She kissed me slow, but you know how far a kiss can go F*ck around and miss the show So I told her to hold that thought real tight We can finish where we left off later on tonite Back to the scene of the crime on time As they introduced the fiend of the rhyme She stood with a birds-eye view of me Thinkin of later on of what she would do to me The back of the room I could see her eyes gloom Patient, but hopin that the show was over soon As the place was ripped in half, she made her way to the front row So I said lets go I packed my mic as they screamed for an encore The speakers were blown, plus my mic was sore Besides I got places to go, ladies to see And she could tell me how crazy she was over me We drove off - she said she liked the way that I performed And couldnt wait to get soft and warm, I said, Ive been watchin you, watchin me Looks I received made it hard to mc I can take a hint, so I knew that she Wanted my agony agony ag-on-y in her bod-y Showed her some sights, then I took her to the condo She was pipin hot, but I kept my calm so She asked how come I dont smile I said, everythings fine, but Im in a new york state of mind! As we reached the kingdom, she said bring some Champagne, shell entertain then sing some Sentimental, songs real gentle, It hit the spot and you know where it went to As we embraced I felt her heart pumpin I knew she was in the mood for somethin So I laid on my back and relaxed It wasnt the perignon that made her collaspe Over me
  16. Ok, fine I'll give you that...lol. Now Bart obviously posted a Bone-Thugs-N-Harmony track, but I'm not too familiar with their work so I cannot tell you the song name...
  17. Lol! For future reference to identify a Clipse verse, look for at least one reference to dealing cocaine... Q-Tip - Gettin' up the album in an almost undisputed rap classic...2nd verse...early nineties It's been twenty-two long hard years of still strugglin Survival got me buggin, but I'm alive on arrival I peep at the shape of the streets And stay awake to the ways of the world cause **** is deep A man with a dream with plans to make Cream Which failed; I went to jail at the age of 15 A young buck sellin drugs and such who never had much Trying to get a clutch at what I could not... could not... The court played me short, now I face incarceration Pacin -- going up state's my destination Handcuffed in back of a bus, forty of us Life as a shorty shouldn't be so ruff But as the world turns I learned life is hell Living in the world no different from a cell Everyday I escape from Jakes givin chase, sellin base Smokin bones in the staircase Though I don't know why I chose to smoke sess I guess that's the time when I'm not depressed But I'm still depressed, and I ask what's it worth? Ready to give up so I seek the Old Earth Who explained working hard may help you maintain to learn to overcome the heartaches and pain We got stickup kids, corrupt cops, and crack rocks and stray shots, all on the block that stays hot Leave it up to me while I be living proof To kick the truth to the young black youth But shorty's running wild smokin sess drinkin beer And ain't trying to hear what I'm kickin in his ear Neglected, but now, but yo, it gots to be accepted That what? That life is hectic
  18. Nice one Turn!!! Ok this might be kinda hard... um...2000ish...rap duos first album...underground classic...first verse "Give me the fortune, keep the fame," said my man Louis I agreed, know what he mean because we live the truest lie I asked him why we follow the law of the bluest eye He looked at me, he thought about it Was like, "I'm clueless, why?" The question was rhetorical, the answer is horrible Our morals are out of place and got our lives full of sorrow And so tomorrow comin later than usual Waitin' on someone to pity us While we findin beauty in the hideous They say money's the root of all evil but I can't tell YouknowhatImean, pesos, francs, yens, cowrie shells, dollar bills Or is it the mindstate that's ill? Creating crime rates to fill the new prisons they build Over money and religion there's more blood to spill The wounds of slaves in cotton fields that never heal What's the deal? A lot of cats who buy records are straight broke But my language universal they be recitin my quotes While R&B singers hit bad notes, we rock the boat of thought, that my man Louis' statements just provoked Caught up, in conversations of our personal worth Brought up, through endangered species status on the planet Earth Survival tactics means, bustin gats to prove you hard Your firearms are too short to box with God Without faith, all of that is illusionary Raise my son, no vindication of manhood necessary
  19. Lol, I really like the album, it's a real feel good, walk in the sunshine...break dance in the middle of the street kind of music...
  20. So good....I could really use an album full of this stuff!
