DMG ..stood out on the FaceMob albums..Devin was eh..on em...like out of his element...

they had another called silence..that hoe jammed



Silence is more like a DMG solo album. (Devin is not on it)...
I agree that Devin is out of his element on some of the tracks (the hardcore ones),but he kills the slow ones.


thought the same..dmg goes hard...rap-a-lot crazy for not keeping him in the mix..him,big mike, Willie d and 3-2 the only ones that was on the roster that useta eat everybodies favorite Texas rapper for lunch everytime they got a verse from em...




I actually believe it's leftover tracks from DMG´s Black Roulette... and that Rap-A-Lot just slapped on the FaceMob name.  :P

That's when a lot of people took notice of him.
Before that I always had to explain who Devin was....

Quote
-cats was like,Devin? Who?
-You know the funny cat with "Pussy is dope" and "Fa´Sho".....
-ahhh him
5 minutes later they forgot the name  :P :-\

 :P  :eh:

The Dude is a classic, easily his best  8)

as far as the best one from this year I'd go with Landing Gear

devin to me is in the same boat w 8ball n mjg with me... its always like 2-3 songs i like off bat..but i never bother to play their shit ever for awhile..

then i interstate skate wit it in the deck...n what was 2-3 songs i liked...turn into enjoyin the whole album...


n hi-life i cant force myself to like that album...kuz it has a fucked up version of the song alchemist produced..n when it dropped i was in washington state at the time..at fye..

i picked up all his shit again..since i was gone be up there for awhile..i aint have no music on me...as im grabbin everything ..what i thought was a white dude said u forgot one n reached around me n put that hi-life shit on top of everything...

i was like ionwan that bullshit mayne...its garbage..then the dude was like shit u got everything else of the dude might as well pick this up too..i turned around n it was devin n rob quest laughin...n devin was like i wouldnt buy the shit neither n i wrote some of the songs..its all good my last check anyway..lol

til this day i cant see how people like hi-life over landin gear ..yo mind > the entire hi-life album

the replay factor is up there with the previous devin albums

"Marley And Me (Remix)"- http://www.zshare.net/audio/542439233f1aa134/ Here's another Smoke DZA/Devin collab "Highway"- http://www.zshare.net/audio/54244009a2f77d8d/  To Tha X-Treme is the best Devin album, IMO (I like them all, though). For '08, I gotta go with "Landing Gear". Not his best album, but it's better than the mixtape and the Rap-A-Lot leftovers. That Hi-Life album has some great songs, though ("My Occupation" w/ Bushwick is amazing). I liked the Smoke Sessions, but I was really disappointed with the sound quality when I bought this (some songs sound like demos). Overall, it was a solid year for Devin. Devin=the most consistent hip-hop artist. Still waiting for this banger to be released- http://www.zshare.net/audio/54244238d713dd9c/

You know what I think of Blind Rob as just the DJ/producer.....
So when I think of Odd Squad I "forget" about him  :P
Thanx for clearing that up  ;)
