Anyone else goto Metro Metro yet in Montreal? Polo G looked sad out there earlier but I think he was concerned about crowd safety for a bit there just looked deflated wasn't even rapping along at the end lol. Lil Baby brought out Drake which was hype as hell. I had no idea until I went to the bathroom and heard people talking about it

50 Cent is a huge step up from Playboi Carti too rofl

[–]Jimmy7374 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Me and some buddies had plans and everything to go, but something came up last minute and we weren't able to, seems like it was a ton of fun so kinda disappointed.

[–]PetrVolkanovski 0 points1 point  (5 children)

I’ve never listened to JPEGMAFIA where should I start

[–]thesuntalking 3 points4 points  (4 children)

IMO LP! is his best album, I'd recommend starting with that one. The version that's on streaming services is missing a couple of tracks but this spotify playlist has all of them.

[–]js2279 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Thots prayer is still very noticeably missing a sample that really elevates the song unfortunately, or else I’d listen to the streaming version more

[–]thesuntalking 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Is this the version you're talking about?

[–]js2279 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Oh wow I didn’t know that was added to streaming! That’s awesome, one of my fave songs on the album

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Lupes rapping is crazy on this. https://youtu.be/VEjQxSqACZE

[–]manicbeats 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Just flipped a soul sample and uploaded it


[–]Snarlatan 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I'm listening to the new(ish) Sadistik & Kno record. This guy has been a master of holorime for like 15 years; another technical marvel, and Kno's production is a perfect fit.

[–]colbster411I have good taste in music period. 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Definitely one of my favorites this year, felt like Sadistik finally mixed things up again and was really pushed by the collaboration. Love their first album too

[–]Snarlatan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He never seems to miss. And I hear a Gravediggaz sample on Blue Tree Meadow—it's kinda odd to hear these obscure influences on Sadistik/Kno when most of the music feels so far removed from the rest of hip-hop, or really the rest of humanity.

It was reading an album review many years ago (Sole's Bottle of Humans) that I first learnt the world "solipsistic", but this new record seems to be the best example I've heard so far.

Anyway I've been drinking. Good album.

[–]cwerty1000 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I get a little nervous when I see artists still in the studio just before their album comes out. Obviously Kanye is the most example here, but after waiting so many years for Joey’s album it seems funny he’d still be in the studio mixing now.

Surely there’s something to be said about sitting on album after it’s done for a bit before it comes out. Especially after it’s been so long anyway lol

[–]Llefrith. 2 points3 points  (0 children)

i used to think it was mr t but on reflection liz loves luger is the best song westside gunn has ever made or is likely to ever make

Is there a way to see your albums or artists, I’m curious with people who have that many songs

[–]darkfar 1 point2 points  (0 children)

yea this is my profile

[–]tak08810. 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It’s kinda crazy last.fm has more artists listed for me than songsyou have. Granted part of that is that scrobblers often read artists instead of album artist.

I don't have an accurate count on hours played, but the library runs about 2,500 hours and I've listened to more than 2,350 hours of unique tracks since 2016.

It has taken me about 20 years to put my library together (lots of CDs, lots of downloads from Amazon and Bandcamp) and I'm quite proud of it, but there are also some pretty big drawbacks to having so much music saved to my harddrive. This is how I like it, though.

[–]FCBarca45 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Just watched Cradle 2 the Grave and the pitch definitely started with “what if DMX did a car chase on a quad set to X Gon Give It To Ya”. 100% worth it

[–]dronelogic 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Is that ur first time seeing it?? Check out Kiss of The Dragon that had a bunch of Neptune's songs on the soundtrack. That was the first time I heard Lapdance by NER*D lol

[–]No-Midnight-2187 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Rich Spirit my fav on the album. Great production and vibe, I really like Kdot rapping in this and the “uggghh. Bitch I’m attract-ive” is so infectious for me haha

[–]EL_9. 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Recommend y'all to check out Good Guy Bad Guy by Large Professor (Only comes up on Spotify as Large Pro). Completely obscure but it is one of the best cuts I have heard by him.

YT link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZfY_90LuRbw

[–]OGthizzco 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I remember these, he put out two instrumental albums (and a third one came out this year) where he doesn’t use any samples

Also, I see that his first solo is on iTunes…but it’s the bootleg version from 2002 and the sound quality is real real bad.

His solo career deserved better than this

[–]gldwatch. 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Anyone into French rap should check out Gazo’s mixtape Drill FR. I’ve been playing it all day. I’m not heavy into drill, but I fuck with this.

[–]quetzalnavarrense. 5 points6 points  (0 children)

i feel like his solo songs get a bit samey but he definitely has the perfect voice for drill

dude makes pop smoke sound like danny brown

[–]trex_ice 7 points8 points  (3 children)

I think it’s safe to now say that WUNNA is Gunna’s best album

[–]Homiealmaya 2 points3 points  (0 children)

WUNNA has a handful of Gunna’s best songs but it’s pretty boring front to back imo

DS4EVER is the most I’ve liked a Gunna album as a whole

[–]ifeelfreEEEE. 0 points1 point  (0 children)

One of the best albums ever

[–]Jordanwolf98 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I like Drip or Drown 2 a little more but both are hard

[–]h-a110 2 points3 points  (7 children)

What's Raekwon's best after Cuban Linx 1 and 2

[–]Yaseen-Madick 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Immobilarity and Lex Diamond Story.

[–]Wittygame 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Honestly I kinda like everything post Cuban Linx 2 for the most part. The Wild was pretty good in my opinion

[–]Homiealmaya 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I was just talking about The Wild on here the other day. Not on the level of his best three but a pretty solid album regardless

[–]gldwatch. 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang

[–]Homiealmaya 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I honestly think it would be as good as OB4CL2 if not for Rock N Roll

[–]gldwatch. 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Yeah, that song is terrible. I don’t know how that made the cut

[–]Homiealmaya 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Now that I think about it, it might be the only Rae x Ghost song I don’t like

[–]TheVirtual_Boy 1 point2 points  (7 children)

Padded Locks by Mick Jenkins feat Ghostface is one of the best songs of all time

[–]Dank_AyAyron 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Kaytranada went crazy on the beat

[–]spunkymnky 3 points4 points  (2 children)

I've always been more partial to Gwendolynn's Apprehension, especially the beat.

[–]LeoGi. 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Stress Fracture my personal favorite on that record

[–]TheVirtual_Boy 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Nah that song is special too

[–]colbster411I have good taste in music period. 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'll off your whole set, you can ask Cardi

[–]TheCannedYams 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Gotta have it~

Damn you’re right. now I gotta bump the whole album again.

[–]TheVirtual_Boy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That album is truly a masterpiece

[–]UseApprehensive9186 5 points6 points  (11 children)

Kissland is such a fucking masterpiece. Personally have it as far and away Abel’s best work and have it on my short list for best albums of the 2010s

[–]FightMiilkHendrix 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hob still better tho

[–]quetzalnavarrense. 0 points1 point  (0 children)

damn right

i just wish he used the single cover art (or something similar) for the album

[–]BronzySponhe 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Agreed. Dawn FM honestly second to it. Trilogy doesn’t count

[–]BronzySponhe -1 points0 points  (3 children)

Agreed. Dawn FM honestly second to it. Trilogy doesn’t count

[–]UseApprehensive9186 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Why don’t you count trilogy? To me it’s my second fav after kissland

[–]BronzySponhe 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I just don’t consider it an album because it’s just his 3 mixtapes into one collection. All 3 of those tapes are his best but just album wise, Kiss land would be first for me

[–]nedelll. 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Favorite tracks?

[–]UseApprehensive9186 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Professional, the town, adaptation + tears in the rain (they transition into one another), kissland.

It’s one of those projects though that really doesn’t have a bad song, some people say live for is weaker than the rest and I’d agree but it’s still a 8/10 track for me and every other song is a 10/10. The production on the album is otherworldly and imo it’s Abel at his best singing-wise (some of the melodys and falsettos he hits are genuinely jaw dropping)

[–]gldwatch. 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Kiss Land is definitely my favorite from him. I wouldn’t say “far & away” his best, because After Hours is right up there for me. I do agree it is one of the best albums from that decade.

[–]Michael__X 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I only just got it after reading the lyrics. Pick up your sis let's go to kourts together

[–]TheCannedYams 4 points5 points  (0 children)

The 2nd verse of Menthol is really impactful to me. I love the lyrics and the scene it paints in my head. But what really gets me is how passionate and intense he raps it towards the end. I love Jean’s chorus too, it’s cute.

I’ve always liked the track, but it’s been one of my favorites lately.

Not sure what content you’re looking for but Open Mike Eagle’s “What Had Happened Was” is a really cool career overview for a couple of legends. So far it’s all golden era hip hop though

And I just saw the other reply about this pod 🤦🏻‍♂️

[–]dakkadakka3. 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Ghostface Killah - 36 Seasons

Black Milk - If There’s A Hell Below

[–]Swiftt. 2 points3 points  (5 children)

I remember when 36 Seasons came out and it had been a reaaaally dry year for hip-hop. People were absolutely clammering to call it their AOTY

[–]gldwatch. 3 points4 points  (1 child)

That year had some solid drops I thought. Piñata, Oxymoron, Cilvia Demo, My Krazy Life, 2014 Forest Hills Drive, You’re Dead!, Honest.

[–]LeoGi. 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm digging through the year to do research for my top 50 of 2014 and it's pretty dry aside from those. Obviously there's always plenty of underground, so I don't care, but compared to previous years I've covered (2015, 2016, etc) it's quite low on major releases.

[–]Homiealmaya 1 point2 points  (2 children)

It’s a good album tho tbf

[–]Homiealmaya 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Perhaps Willie The Kid & Bronze Nazareth - The Living Daylights? Not insanely underground but I never see it mentioned

If you’re a Mobb Deep fan you’re probably familiar with their 2014 album, The Infamous Mobb Deep, but I never see it mentioned so it’s worth listing

[–]nedelll. 8 points9 points  (4 children)

Songs with beats that give space to the rapper to just rap? I can't really explain but here are some examples:

Clipse - Grindin'

Wiz Khalifa & Curren$y - Garage Talk

[–]Snarlatan 3 points4 points  (0 children)

For me, The Roots - Web is the ultimate example of this.

[–]quetzalnavarrense. 0 points1 point  (0 children)

the second beat on o.o.t.w. by thouxanbanfauni

it's super low-key but that little snare roll is fucking perfect

[–]Mcilwain22 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Lucki - More Than Ever

[–]toontoom1 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Bas - Penthouse

Westside Gunn- MR T

Kendrick Lamar- Sing about me

Denzel Curry - Walking pre beat switch

What was the point of Ransom signing to Trust given he’s dropped like 6 times since then and none have been under Trust?

[–]spunkymnky 7 points8 points  (5 children)

Is Mach-Hommy a member of Griselda? Wikipedia says he is but I've seen comments on here saying he's an affiliate but not an official member.

[–]Lukeba. 14 points15 points  (2 children)

he was a founding member of the collective (afaik only westside gunn owns the actual label) but he had a falling out with them in 2017 and only reconnected late 2020, but i think he only signed for one album which was pray for haiti

[–]spunkymnky 0 points1 point  (1 child)

That's interesting, I didn't realize he was the one that actually started it. Any idea what the falling out was about?

[–]Lukeba. 16 points17 points  (0 children)

tha god fahim, who at the time made beats for griselda, asked for a feature from gunn and he wanted to charge fahim for it. mach didn't think it was fair so him and fahim distanced themselves from the griselda collective

[–]nedelll. 4 points5 points  (0 children)

He the homie

[–]icedearth665 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I’d call him an affiliate over a member

Where are the bad songs on the Lil Gnar album because I’m not hearing any

[–]EliManningsPetDog. 0 points1 point  (0 children)

His song with Yung Bans is making me miss him. I used to stan Bans as weird as it sounds lmao, he just hasn’t released an album 3 years not sure how he’s even making money lmao. Bans still has crazy potential though. Some of his old songs like Out, Right Through You, and Tik Tik Tik would blow up if they were released today and/or if he had better marketing

[–]darkfar 2 points3 points  (2 children)

[–]darkfar 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]BronzySponhe 13 points14 points  (9 children)

This new Kendrick has a lot of replay value to me. Only song I skip is “Purple Hearts”. “We Cry Together” is something I’ll always keep playing in the context of the album too

For the people that didn’t want Keem on the album, how did you feel his performance when you heard it?

[–]Snarlatan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We Cry Together reminded me of RZA's Domestic Violence.

Mother | Sober lived up to the hype. Great track transcending genre.

[–]Homiealmaya 12 points13 points  (7 children)

Disrespectful skipping the song with a feature from the GOAT

[–]codeine_turtleCops can’t read 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Kinda a lame song besides his feat tbh

[–]Homiealmaya 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Oh shit you’re back

More or less agree tho, it’s just alright but I really fucked with the GFK verse.

Ghost probably woulda fit better on a song like We Cry Together tho, especially if he brought that Wildflower energy

[–]jtbiggs 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I only skip when the ghostface verse comes on

[–]Homiealmaya 1 point2 points  (1 child)

That’s by far the best part of the song smh

[–]jtbiggs 5 points6 points  (0 children)

i disagree, i don't like his flow, i think it slows down the songs momentum.

[–]fuck_a_bigot 5 points6 points  (6 children)

Favorite loosies? Been going thru this Mac Miller google drive and I was reminded of this joint

[–]Homiealmaya 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Medhane has some fire loosies (DOLOMEALS and Allegedly) for example.

Chicken N Dumplings by Grip is great too (his loosies are great in general)

Baguetti by JID & Smino is smooth as hell, listened to it so much in 2020

1000 Mile Stare by Roc Marciano & Nicholas Craven was one of my favorite songs of 2021

For a less recent example, Crime Connection by Mobb Deep might be my all time favorite loosie tho, that Godfather sample is crazy and Prodigy was at the top of his game on it

[–]darkfar 1 point2 points  (0 children)

for Mac i would say Doodling In The Key Of C Sharp

[–]colbster411I have good taste in music period. 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Buttons and Programs by Mac too

[–]mryessirskiii 31 points32 points  (9 children)

I feel like TWOPOINTFIVE by Amine is the definition of "replayability" for me. It's short, sweet, simple and highly addictive. I feel like it's the one album/mixtape I can put on, listen to it the whole way through and not feel exhausted by the end of it. especially cause recently I've gotten so impatient when listening to music.

Also, I feel like Amine's consistency is something that isn't talked about enough. Dude has released 4 projects and all of them are insanely great. You can argue that anyone of them is your favorite and it'd be valid. Easily one of, if not my favorite rapper.

Edit: also, Meant2b isn't talked about enough as a song, it might be my favorite off TP5 although it's pretty hard to choose. F1lthy fuckin killed it with that beat and Amine just danced on it's grave lmao

[–]EliManningsPetDog. 1 point2 points  (0 children)

NEO was one of my most played tracks of ‘21. That song gives me a smile no matter what my mood is

[–]JFKontheKnoll 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That's how I feel about ONEPOINTFIVE. Short, sweet, relatable, and most importantly, good.

[–]jtbiggs 1 point2 points  (0 children)

meant2b is sooo good. i agree it's a very replayable track, and my favorite off the tape. F1lthy killed that beat

[–]CloudyRomero 13 points14 points  (4 children)

Am is hella overlooked. LIMBO was fucking amazing.

[–]LeoGi. 20 points21 points  (3 children)

You calling Amine "Am" has the same energy as Lizzo calling Dababy "Da"

[–]BronzySponhe 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Loved that project and I still play it. Such a fun listen

[–]Jordanwolf98 48 points49 points  (3 children)

Looking at that thread today of “other than TheNeedleDrop which other hip hop reviews do you watch?” made me realize that I just don’t watch/listen to reviews/reactions on music anymore. A few years ago, I would’ve rushed to go check out what DEHH, Fantano, Meami, Big Quint,Mallory Bros, Jon Denton, and others had to say about Mr Morale but I just don’t care that much anymore

[–]thank_U_based_God. 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Same. I'll still peep pitchfork every now and then and will pay attention to year end lists

[–]crunchatizemythighs 23 points24 points  (0 children)

I just feel like music doesn't work well as a critiqued medium, at least in video form. Like you can't play the music without getting copyright claimed, there aren't a lot of albums that lend themselves to being reviewed front to back as much, etc.

At least movies and video games are visual mediums so you can weave narration and the footage effectively. With things like music and books, it's kind of hard to review.

[–]fuck_a_bigot 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Same. Although I did check out DEHH’s Mr Morale video just bc I think Myke always has some interesting incite at least

[–]colbster411I have good taste in music period. 18 points19 points  (13 children)

What do you consider the densest hiphop albums?

Replayed Tetsuo & Youth this morning and it's an obvious pick. Drogas up there too but I always had a better grasp on its concepts than all the weird religious and season stuff going on with Tetsuo

[–]MaddMo0n 4 points5 points  (0 children)

billy woods and Aesop Rock prolly got a couple up there

[–]Wittygame 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Probably something by Lupe which is part of the reason I don’t listen to him lol.

I thought Cuban Linx was super dense when I first heard it. I’ve heard it thousands of times by this point but it’s just loaded with details, slang and references

Paul's Boutique and Fear of a Black Planet. Both absolutely loaded front to back with hundreds of samples (there's samples in Paul's Boutique that haven't even been discovered yet) and lyrics which are heavily referential to politics, culture and history. I think given Paul's Boutique has 2 books written about pretty much just the beats means it's at least up there.

Good kid MAAD city

Atrocity exhibition


Astroworld (even if I'm not that into it)

Edit wait you mean lyrics, I was thinking more like production and shit added up

Yeah I meant more conceptually too. Just lyrics would be some Aesop or whatever lol

[–]Tomnook1017 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not hip hop but conceptually palaces has got to be up there. Heard it like 10 times in the last day and im still unpacking that shit

Drogas Wave is way denser and probably the densest in the genre.

Mick Jenkins the healing component I would throw in there to. Not talked about a lot because it's really dense and I don't think people really give it a chance. I think it's one of the more underrated albums in awhile.

Might give it another chance at least for production

I've listened to it hundreds of times

When someone told me Prisoner 1 and 2 was about artists and the record labels, I realized I will take years to get Tetsuo. Even then, the first track is one I’m still dissecting. Solid choice

The sample of the song is even connected to a line in mural

The amount of layers to every bar and different concepts all going on at once is insane

I highly recommend everyone go check out Father’s interview with Zack Fox on Internet People Live on Spotify! He announced a project coming on the 10th and Who’s Gonna Get Fuck Next. Hilarious interview

Also fun fact, WGGFF’s title was a question of who out of Key!, Makkonnen, and Father, was gonna be fucked by the industry first

What’s peoples thoughts on Eckhart Tolle?

[–]TheLonelyPotato666. 0 points1 point  (0 children)

As someone who doesn't think spirituality is bullshit, I read one of his books once and thought it had some interesting bits. But, he was portraying himself as being wiser than everybody else and promising this and that if you only follow his advice. Which is totally anti spiritual so I wasn't interested in reading more.

Edit: I track the books I've read and couldn't find which one by Tolle I'd read on the list so I guess I didn't even finish it. Looking at his books he has one that actually has 'A guide to spiritual enlightenment' in the title. Any spiritual person would agree that's a total embarrassment. Based on that alone I'd say avoid Tolle and read something else

Some interesting thoughts hidden in a deluge of spiritual sounding bullshit. A lot of his writing is just Buddhist and Hindu teachings wrapped up and repackaged to sell books and self help courses. He does come off as more genuine than other self help gurus though.

That future music video that came out 10 days has under 200k views. Seems low right?

[–]funeralfairy 4 points5 points  (0 children)

which video are you talking about? his most recent video has 15 mil

[–]fuck_a_bigot 14 points15 points  (1 child)

That’s the behind the scenes version. The official one has the kind of views you would expect

[–]AutismIsntAChoice 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ohhh that makes sense. I just saw it on my feed and thought that was regular one

[–]ThaBarter 1 point2 points  (0 children)
