So Kanye has tweeted over 100 times in the last hour. If nothing else he might get De La Soul on streaming, even if Donda is never happening.

Edit: This is turning out to be one of his better manic episodes.

Great album.

I also just noticed “Felt” dropped a new album about a month ago (Slug and Murs) produced by Ant. Both Felt and Atmosphere have serious issues when using Tidal, as there are other artists of the same name in there messing it up.

Lastly, new Class for the Classified fans:

I really enjoyed this. Doesn't make up for the show that got cancelled here with Rage, but it's something at least.

Anyone check out that new Benny the Butcher album? Hit Boy does the beats for the whole project and it's pretty great. Sounds like a NY rap album from the early 2000's but tweaked for 2020.

The Benny album is pretty decent, if you like him check out Flee Lord. Griselda adjacent as it were.

New 3MG? Woooooooooooo

Opinions on the new Busta? New Black Thought? New Common?

For the record the correct responses are dope, dope, and not my thing but still dope.

Eminem dropped a surprise album b-side to Music To Be Murdered By. I like it, though I can always do without the skits and stuff like that beefing up the number of tracks. Still haven't heard an Eminem album I didn't like.

Couple listens through and it just gets better.

Gnat is a masterpiece:

I get hooked on some weird songs, for weird reasons. I currently love this and have probably listened to it a hundred times since I first heard it:



Honestly, I don't even know what it means, but its awesome. It's the kind of thing my wife laughs about because I love all this and really can't possibly relate at all.

I know there are a couple of you left around here and seeing best of 2020 lists I’m realizing I clearly don’t have enough indie backpack cred. In no particular order my favourite albums of 2020:

Unlocked - Denzel Curry and Kenny Beats
Mauve - King Fantastic
Cincoriginals - Tobe Nwigwe
The Allegory - Royce the 5’9”
Slab Talk - Paul Wall and Lil Keke
I Miss Hyphy - Mistah F.A.B.
Anime, Trauma, and Divorce - Open Mike Eagle
So Help Me God - 2 Chainz
Rocamerikkka 2 - Flee Lord & Eto
Love & Rockets Vol 2 - MURS and DJ Fresh

Plenty I left off or swap in and out (Flee Lord releases like 10 projects a year) but that’s a good starting point.

So anyone else following the Donda rollout? I mean good chance it still never comes out, but it has been an interesting insight into how manic Kanye's current state of mind is at. Music itself has been pretty meh so far what's been played, but again will it ever even come out? Probably not.

I have been watching the rollout and it's been interesting to say the least. The music seems pretty meh but Kanye actually living in Mercedes Benz Stadium is hilarious. I would love to see some good music come out of this but I doubt it. He hasn't had anything I've truly enjoyed from front to back since My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.

On another note, has anyone checked out King's Disease 2 by Nas? Pretty solid album. It's good for him when he works with one producer vs sourcing out beats from various producers (Illmatic is the obvious exception)

Yeah I liked King's Disease 2, nothing amazing but probably his best since Stillmatic. Overall it's been a pretty meh year for hip hop though, guess I'd say Tyler's album is probably the best thing I've heard this year, but Kendrick and Kanye to come so hopefully one of them drops a great album.

With time being so meaningless now I had to go back and look to see what had come out this year

Bun B and LE$ - Distant
Vinnie Paz - Burn Everything That Bears Your Name
Skyzoo - All The Brilliant Things
Flee Lord - Delgado
Ransom - se7en
RJ Payne - Leatherface 3
Reef the Lost Cause - Invisible Empire
Benny The Butcher & 38 Spesh - Trust the Sopranos

Thats a quick look and I’d say I’ve been pretty impressed with hip hop this year. I might listen to a different stuff than some other though. I wanted to like that Nas album but like the previous one it felt like getting preached at by my dad.

I don't listen to as much rap as I used to, of those I've only listened to Benny the Butcher (liked it) and Bun B (meh).

Donda is officially out now. Nearly two hours lol. Gonna be a mess but I suppose that's to be expected.

I’ll try to keep this post under 6000 characters

Music makes me high - lost boyz and dogg pound
Beasts from the east - lost boyz, redman, canibus
Akickdoe - C Murder and UGK
Watch for the hook - cool breeze and outkast
Throw your hands in the air remix - cypress hill, EPMD, eiht, redman
Headbanger - EPMD etc
I got 5 on it remix - Luniz and half the world
4321 - LL, red, meth, canibus
24 hours to live - Mase, Lox, DMX
Usual Suspects - Mic Geronimo, DMX, Ja Rule, Lox
Flava in ya ear remix - Craig Mack etc. The 90s loved them some remix
Dusted n Disgusted - e40, pac, Mac mall, spice one
Off the books - beatnuts, big pun, etc
John Blaze - fat joe, nas, jada, rae
The Anthem - Sway and Tech and every rapper around damn this song still bangs so hard
Leflaur Leflah Eshkoshka - OGC, heltah skeltah
Banned from TV - NORE, Jada, pun etc
The Points - Black Panther soundtrack. Biggie, busta, loads of people.
WWIII - Ruff Ryders. Fine it’s 2000 but whatever
Thug Luv - Bone and Pac
Cowboys - fugees, outsidaz

Uhh… that’s probably a good start. Left off wu tracks since those don’t count IMO. Probably forgot a bunch of good stuff and will hatefully edit this later. I also think you’re required by international law to include tribe’s Scenario on any such playlist.

Anyone listen to Donda yet?

First reaction:

Some definite legitimate gems in there with a bit of filler that could have been scrapped.

Jail Part 1 and Part 2
Jesus Lord
Off the grid
OK OK
Hurricane

Those stood out.

I think Jesus Lord, Off the Grid, Come to Life, Moon and Believe What I Say are great, but my goodness is this thing bloated. Cut this thing down to 10 songs and there's a very good album in there, but in its current state it's just too long and nowhere near good enough to justify the run time.
