started getting into kanyes latest album. the lyrics are really simple yet so deep. originally i thought it would be like all this other t-pain or lil wayne new autotune crap, but man was i wrong. welcome to heartbreak and amazing are 2 of my fav songs right now.

#1 should be "In the night I hear them talk, the coldest story......."

Best song on the album

i need some new rap on my ipod. preferably 90's stuff. any suggestions?

MUST HAVES from the 90s off the top....in no order

nas - illmatic....it was written

dr. dre - 2001

eminem - the slim shady lp

mf doom - operation doomsday

mobb deep - the infamous....hell on earth

common - resurrection

gang starr - moment of truth

outkast - atliens.....aquemeni

big l - lifestylez of the poor and dangerous

noreaga - n.o.r.e.

cnn - the war report

ghostface - ironman

wutang - enter the wu-tang (36 chambers)

raekwon - only built for cuban linx

notorious big - ready to die

jay-z - reasonable doubt

i'm probably missing a bunch...obv 2pacs stuff and snoop lol not huge on old westcoast....but IMO if ur missing ANY of these albums ur 90's collection ain't complete. all borderline classics

best RW blurb ever:

Heath Bell worked around a walk to strike out the side Tuesday and earn a save against the Dodgers.

His choice of song was "Blow Me Away" by Breaking Benjamin, in case you were wondering. Apparently, you don't get to choose grown-up music until after your first 30-save season.

Even thought everyone on here hates my music. I'm listening to Oceano's new CD Depths its one of the most brutal CD's in recent memory.

Here's the a link to their music video District Of Misery.

Real hip-hop.

Underground hiphop and some R&B. None of that mainstream garbage.

Thank you. I'm not the biggest fan of rap, but anything on the radio makes my ears bleed. It isn't even rap it is club music or R&B that they show off as rap.

Em's new album Relapse just leaked today. been listening to it all day, can't get enough. I absolutely hated Encore and am pretty damn happy and relieved he came back strong. The singles he released kind of suck...but the album is crazy dope.

Deja Vu

Underground

My Mom

Stay Wide Awake

Beautiful

all amazing tracks. this guy is the KING of flow, wordplay, multi-syllable rhymes...just so refreshing to hear new em, makes u realize how much better this guy can be than everyone in the game pretty much..

3am is the creepiest song

I really like that song, it is my favorite song that I have heard lyrically, but he like changes his voice in it. He sounds really weird in it and I find it extremely annoying the most I listen to it.

3 am's the best of the singles leaked early imo. but yeah the voice is a TAD annoying...weird accent.

these tracks are incredible imo...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zHa_FjQgwKQ Deja Vu

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8I3YhJoyptU My Mom (really reminds me of MMLP em, the story is crazy entertaining, flow is incredible)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihEkGDbuR7E Beautiful (probably the deepest em track i've heard in some time...this and deja vu em pours his heart out

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kgMOugvImFQ Stay Wide Awake

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uz4s4vQX6uM Underground...this is that Till I Collapse em...fierce!

ive heard all the singles and a couple other tracks off relapse and im not really digging that accent hes using in some songs.

i'm pretty sure no one does...which really baffles me as to why he uses it so often. well i guess it's a new accent for this album, but he used an arabic type weird accent on encore that no one liked either. he just needs to cut out that nonsense. but i still would urge you to listen to the whole album; the songs i listed above do not have the accent (well stay wide awake has hints of it) and they're all incredible imo.

Havent listened to Em's album yet.

Really awaiting Crime Pays. As an avid Cam supporter I'm not downloading any leaks. Gonna go cop the album Tuesday the old fashioned way.

Been listening to tons of Drake lately. A lotta Cudi. Akon's first album. Scarface's "Emeritus". U-N-I "A Love Supreme" is crazy good.

And then for my ignorant music fix that I always need I've been listening to El Dorado Red outta Atlanta and a bunch of bay area stuff. Jacka, Berner, Ampichino, Messy, Lee Majors, Husalah.

damn, i listened to underground and deja vu and both those songs are just killer slim shady s***. those 2 songs are like the 1997-2001 em. beautiful is really good and really deep too, but not the 97-01 em that i love. are there any other songs on this album that are somewhat like the 97-01 em?

yeah man, "My Mom" to me is awesome...exactly like mmlp marshall imo. the chorus is a little corny, but i really could care less about hooks...the beat goes hard, and the stories he has in that track are awesome. the flow is 2nd to none. and theres no accent.

honestly aside from the accent on a handful of tracks, pretty much all the tracks is old em, flow wise and subject matter. his flow hasn't missed a step since old em...if he just cut the accent in a few tracks this album would be right there with eminem show, etc.

Still listening to Motown: A Journey Through Hitsville USA. Boyz II Men, took my girl and my mom and dad to the concert last night, dragged my dad but had to for my girl and my mom for mothers day, they cried during A Song For Momma. Today it is all about the Boyz II Men covers of Motown hits.
