    smelt, sitting on hella eggs, chillin in igloos, ice fishing with my beak
  1. well, i dont like either of those guys but i'll probably listen anyways.
  2. its ok, im very familiar with lupe. i own "food and liquor" and listened to "the cool." i even have some of his old mixtapes. i'm also from chicago....and i think he SUCKS! hes gotta be the most overrated rapper of the past couple of yrs. none of my circle of friends, at least those that still listen to hip-hop, like him. the only time i see or hear about him being one of the game's best is on the internet. i never got his appeal. BTW new reks album dropped today, cop it. musically its 100x better than "untitled".
  3. -nope, never before released and it'll be a 1 time limited pressing. its called "demented thoughts." -only time i ever saw kool keith was when he was in his dr.doom phase. -herb mcgruff was in big L's crew C.O.C. harlem cat who released an ok solo LP 10 yrs ago then disappeared.
  4. it helps when your older brother is a DJ. BTW, are you familiar with the cenobites? they just released this limited pressing (200 i think) of previously unreleased mid 90s tracks. tryin to get my hands on a hard copy, but i doubt it'll happen. starting price is 80 bucks. its the 2nd of 5 limited pressings. its being sold by the same people who released herb mcgruff's demo EP.
  5. nah just wondering if you were down to trade. just link me to your e-bay if you ever put those up. im always looking for more vinyl. i've been buying 12"s since i was maybe 13. couldnt tell you how many pieces i got, but if you're looking for somethin lemme know. i got a bunch of breakbeats, funk and electro, but my specialty is mid 90s (94 to early 98) indy hip-hop. i know which blogs you're referring to...my buddy used to be one of the main contributors in that circle.
  6. mixed bag today: crystal antlers EP (prod by mars volta's keyboardist) al green's latest album jay electronica mixtape A$$holes by nature album sigur ros' new one and notwist-the devil, you + me
  7. hey swish, dunno if you're a fan of z-ro but have you checked out the new ABN?
  8. you saying that primo and others of his ilk cant produce laid back, chill beats? primo, pete rock and extra p's beats hit me like a metronome and make me completely zone out and really get me into the lyrics. to me, that style of heavy drummed, subtle jazz sample with chops, stabs and scratches based hip-hop suits nas to a T. hes got a grimey voice and a poetic, fragmented, non-sequitor style full of imagery. those "metronome" beats are perfect for him. besides, nas will never sound right over hyped beats cuz his flow isnt that versatile. nas' lyrics are guided, angry and on point. his flow
  9. all i gotta say about the album is that, outside of "fried chicken", i cant wait for the accapellas to come out. nas still has a terrible ear for beats. i was right, i like the mixtape more than the album. pretty deflating to say the least, but then again, i havent had high hopes for a nas album in yrs. the man just has no clue from a musical standpoint and sounds akward on his beats. seriously, why cant nas reach out to large pro, primo, L.E.S....pete rock, kev brown, etc. or actually keep a dj khalil song his album? ("esco lets go" bangs)? the beats are so watered down and sugary that i c
  10. ouch. mic T's the only one i like out of this new chi-town hipster BS. he's vicious. hopefully he sticks to his roots and doesnt become another one of what this city's been producing lately....you catch him throwing up "folks" at the end? also, i've met mazzi before. my buddy brought me up to the studio when i visited him and mazzi worked on WKCR. hes actually cool people, but i dunno where his heads at.
  11. yeah, they shouldve picked a different name for their band though. 2 piece band, the + a color + plural noun... sound familiar? their sound is surprisingly full for a 2 piece. they must get hooked up in the studio. anybody seen them live?
  12. good looks. gotta check my blogs tommorrow. i still listen to n****noize weekly. sick tape.
  13. "fried chicken" is more my type of beat. he also has this song where he raps just over an untouched david axelrod track a la ghostface. good stuff. i have a feeling that mixtape will be > than the album. nas makes terrible decisions on tracks like that, hence the existence of "lost tapes"
