  1. Edan's Radio Show. All kinds of flavors... Check it out here. If you dig it, check out episode 2 for sure. http://grandgood.com/2009/05/01/edans-radio-show-episode-1/
  2. Listen man, I explained myself. I tend(ed) to stop listening to "mainstream" artists when I thought they were selling out or their music got tired, redundant, whatever the case. Gangstarr, Tribe, De la and the list goes on. I never said I didn't listen to a "mainstream" artist, but gave reasons why I started focusing on the underground right around 99 or 2000. You talk about opinions then true talent. What you perceive as talent is different than others. I'm not sure what is absurd...maybe my opinion and what I listen to is absurd to you. Notice I haven't said that one time no matter ho
  3. EVERY single rap artist? Really? Well if that is the case then it just goes to show why I don't have much interest in giving them any of my money. It is when I decide not to buy an album from an artist. That equals being watered down man. I can tell you that Sage Francis, Buck 65, Aesop Rock, El-P, Jel, etc. have NOT done this. That is why the underground is much more appealing to me. And you continue to want to compare musical artists to athletes. It is not working for me. Music is a creative industry, hopefully. They are many differences between the two. And a whole album cannot b
  4. See, that is the kind of stuff that turns me off bigtime. It's what the true underground artists/albums/songs don't do. This is why I now primarily dig for old samples and break beats. My friends with similar taste call it selling out for the masses and some of my favorite artists of all-time have done it. I have no problem with these artists or the people who listen to them. It is just a big reason why I have been turned off by rap music in the past several years. Again, this might happen to others as they get older or it may not. There is a lot of money in the rap game to be had and i
  5. Dude, I listened to his stuff on youtube. Not impressed. If that wasn't his actual skill, then what the hell was he doing singing at the espys in front of a national audience? And I generally dont like the sing-songy MC's with overplayed chourses in their songs. Let's just say I agree again with Chris Wills on this one and that we have pretty similar tastes. You and I don't. Now if you want to talk about maturity levels that's fine. Maybe you can mature enough to understand that I don't like what I don't like. Anybody who is influenced by Crucial Conflict of all groups is sure not to r
  6. Sorry for the double post, but just had to recommend "The Conmen" and their mixtapes. I think they have been out awhile but I just downloaded 5 of them. They are full of great beats and you will recognize sample after sample if you were a hiphop fan thru the 90's. The blending is great and really makes for some good listening, imo. NICE
  7. I will let my buddy know, although he might already, and he will prolly look into gettin it. I knew I heard of Herb Mcgruff somewhere, just couldn't plave the name. RIP Big L!! Oh, and MiggyManCrrush was talking about Lupe Fiasco??? I am pretty sure I just heard him singing on the ESPY's. That was unfortunate. And he is an up & coming star? I guess I AM getting old.
  8. Yeah, that does help. I have a Cenobites EP somewhere. It's Kool Keith, Gofather Don & several guests. Is that the one? I believe it had like 10 tracks, but it has been awhile since I rocked that. I think I used to play "Kick a Dope Verse" & "Mommy" quite a bit. I was lucky enough to see Kool Keith on Thanksgiving night, 2002 in Columbus. He came out in full Black Elvis attire and put on a good show. Not too familiar will Herb McGruff's stuff though, but a brother is too broke to afford a piece a wax for 80 bones right now. I will definitely be sellin my Cenobites EP if it is
  9. Awesome man. Sounds like you have a nice taste. I like your style man. You probably have the pieces I will be selling, but I will let you know regardless. Impressive to say the least that you started collecting vinyl so young. I was way late on getting my decks and starting to collect. Props
  10. I haven't done any ripping of vinyl. I just borrow the ripped vinyl that others are so nice to share. I am actually going to liquidate some vinyl here real soon to clear some room and make a little cash. I do have some awesome blogs I visit almost daily that keeps the mp3's very fresh with older stuff mostly. Let me know if interested in the few blogs that I find very nice and also if interested in the sale of some vinyl. They will be on ebay soon and I can pm the blog sites(lots of old awesome funk) if you wish. Word
  11. I'm really not interested in trying to change your mind and trust me you wont change mine. I'm sure you do know more about the artists these days. It doesnt take long for me know what I don't want to hear. All the artists you listed I have heard and made comments on. These debates are exactly what I have avoided for several years now. It does nothing for me. I am not taking 2nd hand knowledge. Go to HHB, a blog that everything that comes out. I don't enjoy the music. Thats it. You said when you were born and yes I was listening to hip hop music then. I dont mean anything besides the
  12. Ignorance is being uninformed sir. I'm pretty sure I am not uninformed. I am just tired of it. I have heard most of the artists you listed. Nas, only Illmatic and a few other singles. Common was one of my favorite rappers but wasn't too into the albums after Resurrection. The Like water for Chocolate was the end for me. He is smart enough to understand the shelflife of most MC's is short & is getting into acting. You will also see many MC's getting into production, etc because they understand it's hard to keep putting out dope ish. I mean Public Enemy was one of the greatest ever
  13. Nas should have quit after Illmatic. The album is a top 10 hiphop album & is like a movie that never should have had a sequel. The beats, stories, lyrics, rawness & flow still makes for a great listen. I wish everyone could realize how good hiphop was in the 90's & how awesome Yo! MTV Raps was compared to what is out today. Now I refuse to listen to anything "hiphop", which is such a loose term. I mean I have heard people put so many pop artists in hiphop. And meanwhile Kool Herc sits in his small 1 bedroom apt. while people like lil wayne, lil chingy, lil bow wow, lil flip &
  14. I have been into the mixtapes a lot of lately. A couple of good ones for the true hiphop heads is Popular Fallacies by John Doe of the 1200 Hobos. And Qbert has a set of break CD's with 4 Volumes called Breakonomics. Not sure how old these 2 are, but both new to me and I have been playing them into the ground at the gym. Anyone who might be interested let me know and I can tell where to get them. Don't worry it won't cost you a thing .
