Should have included a poll with every Bishop song and everybody can only pick 20 tracks. I remember doing something like that a year ago, but a lots changed since then. If anybody wants I can create a thread with the poll i mentioned, but I know people don't like so many Bishop threads at the same timie.

i dunno its all opinions, but i feel like my list is closest to an actual hip-hop album rather than the next g-unit cd, even though there's still a few corny tracks on there.
like this one:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/UILQhtR8f5g" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/UILQhtR8f5g</a>

?

haha :laugh: like my girl is the game with her titties out...

that track is pretty damn similar to that other new bishop track 'err'day in the streets' and it certainly belongs in the same place (trash can). maybe its the new detox sound?

if slim the mobster actually puts an album out on aftermath i won't know what to say :-\

definitely. i wouldn't discount any possibility. he might just 'blow up like you thought i would' and 'get paid' :o

i just find it comical based on bishop not being able to release his album.

So Much Style

I've actually been meaning to make a thread like this for awhile but could never quite lock down the songs I would put on it myself, but here goes..

1. It's Bishop [Prod. J. Wells]  I know it's old as hell but it's still one of the only songs where everything works for Bishop. J. Wells Provides a banging beat, Bishops flow is aggresive and the lyrics work.  It's a good introduction to Bishop.

2.My Inheritance [Prod. Focus?]  Another old track but it's a personal favourite, Lays out the state of music on the west coast and states Bishops intention to bring it back.

3.Goatit Ft. Phat Kat & Elzhi  [Prod. Black Milk]  From a technical Standpoint the tightest verse Bishop's ever done (IMO). He goes nuts and to leave this of would be a shame.

4.All I Dream About Ft. Pooh Bear [Prod. Scott Storch] An underrated Bishop song, One of a few Bishop Songs I can dance to and it's not corny, I love Pooh Bear on the hook.

5. Inconvenient Truth Ft. Black Milk [Prod. DJ Khalil] Bishop and Black Milk speaking the truth about the state of hip-hop what's not to like.

6. N*gger [Prod. Diverse]  Goes from complaining about hip-hop to speaking on racism in our day and age, this could be replaced with american dreaming, but i like the verse on this one better and i like how he points out the hypocrisies of using the word.

7.Greatest Trick [Prod. D Porter]  Another track of Bishop speaking on the ills of society. Mr Porter provides a great Instrument and bishops lyrics hit home.  As would others i'd loved this mixed properly.

8.Street Theology [Prod. Mark Batson] How you could have a performer's name like Bishop Lamont and not have a song on your CD that tackles the Church.  Instrumental is a little weak and the subject matter may not be for everyone but i still like it.

9.Hallelujah Ft. Xzibit [Prod. Dr Dre] Continues with the Church feeling from the previous song.

10. Grow Up [Prod. Dr. Dre] Great summertime beat and track.

11. Milf Ft. Wendy Vaughn [Prod. Diverse]  This little known (At least little discussed) song that has long been a personal favourite of mine.  It's his funniest track with some great storytelling and punchlines. Plus Bishop isn't that great at making club dance songs so why not go with something a little different?

12.Everyday [Prod. Diverse] Possibly one of Bishop's most inspiring and sentimental tracks, this song just works.

13.I Allways Knew [Prod. Cool and Dre ] Another Uplifting track. Bishop gets introspective.

14. On Top Now Ft. Black Milk & Stat Quo [Prod. DJ Khalil] braggadocio and tight verses from all three plus the beat bangs.

15. No Stoppin Carson [Prod. Dr. Dre] Ends on a high energy note with a simplistic yet effective Dre beat.

Bonus Tracks.

16. Friends [Prod Hi Tek]

17. It Hurts [Prod. Dready Beats] Love the Keys on the instrumental, Bishop is Meh.

18. I'm a Soldier [Prod. Da Riffs?] Another old favourite track.

I tried to make a cohesive thematic flow for the LP rather than just a collection of songs. I didn't really know where to put milf but it's a personal favourite so it had to go on.  A mix of older and newer songs but i think it works.

Didn't know either until I checked the Vaults (Shameless Promotions for The Vault) when i posted. I allways go there when i need production credits, I think the Instrumental has been used for others, I know Ras Kass did a song over this beat too.

Here's the one i made after "the confessional" dropped :

1) It's bishop
2) Street theology
3) Grow up
4) No stoppin
5) Feel on it
6) Send a nigga home
7) On top now
8) Fuck your couch
9) First they love you
10) Posted (with glasses)
11) Up and down (was the first official street single about 10 years ago)
12) Hood psalm
13) Caltroit
14) Go at it
15) Inconvenient truth
16) It hurts
17) Gorilla pimpin (DOPE verse from BL)
18) All i ask you (last verse is insane)

Now i would add "Hallelujah" of course.
There are about 10 other tracks which i think are dope album cuts (afrika, cant figure it out, nothing could be better...)


Keep up the good work Bishop, i hope he'll really get that BIG spot on the Detox album to get major exposure. He deserves it.

PS : is the "no country for oldmen" project over ?

Good list! Looks like a real hip-hop selection, most of the corny tracks have been avoided. Plus you chose 'All I Dream About' - easily one of the best album calibre Bishop joints.

I respect Dr.Dre just for hooking Bishop up with all these dope producers and allowing him to release all this god damn dope material.   But my gut tells me the really dope sounding shit hasn't even been released yet. 

For example, It Hurts leaked and that beat is on another level.  That beat is on some futuristic album shit.  Even the Hallelujah beat sounds weak compared to It Hurts.
not really, if you ask me

he has a point though...Bishop needs to drop ''It Hurts'' mastered, or just even the instrumental is enough for me...it could be my favorite beat ever...it's just on some 2030 shit  8)

If you don't know the code - should be on the Reformation, with a verse from 50 at least thats the plan
All on my dick - the confessional
Bitches on my Dick - Pr1me Presents Stylafornia, was a Reformation track at on point may still be but likely a leftover
Ain't no Other nigga - Young and Reckless Mixtape Presented By Drama Beats, It's not out yet, no idea when it drops
Nothing could be better - not sure but i think it's a Reformation Track
Up & Down - old street single, not on any projects
Friends - DJ Warrior and Peter Parker Presents Loud Vol.1 Sounds like a Reformation Leftover to me (no confirmation of this)
Don't come around here - same song as if you don't know the code i thought.
We aint' gangsta's - no idea although i think there is a longer version with another rapper on it, I just have the bishop verse.
Missile Testing - not on a project although maybe Team America based on his Kim Jung Scrill impersonation at the end.(just my speculation), I think it's just a standalone diss track


aite ima ask here first
(good lookin for the idea, and this is what i can remember what i wanted to know right now)

oh alright yeah I was confused I didnt mean "Don't Come Around Here" I was thinking of "If You Don't Know the Code" that song is sick sucks there aint a full version, and by saying its gonna be on the reformation you might as well say its gonna be on the game and 50 reunion record cause that shit aint happening.

We can hope. If not I have more faith in bishop leaking his songs from the math than stat quo ever doing it.
