The last 5 albums you listened to
« on: November 06, 2014, 04:55:10 AM »
Shout outs to Mr Theo who inspired me  8)

Write down your last 5 albums that you listened to. Maybe with some extra comments (f.e. did you like it, dope songs that you recommend, flaws of the album, etc). Could be a cool concept imo

I'll start it off:

1/ Method Man - Tical 2000: Judgement Day (28 songs deep with 10 skits. Could have been a classic though, as there are many dope songs: Spazolla, Sweet Love, Play 4 Keeps, Step by Step, Big Dogs, Break up to make ups etc. Guess the album should have been shorter with its 73! minutes. )
2/ GZA/Genius - Beneath the surface (imo this is an overlooked album with lots of bangers! My favorites: 'Hip Hop fury', 'Beneath the surface', 'Amplified Sample' etc. I wonder who had the idea to put 2 stupid consecutive skits though (skit#1 & skit#2 on tracklist 4 & 5)?)
3/ AG - Get Dirty Radio (check out 'Take a ride' prod by Madlib! The rest didn't excite me that much)
4/ Da Youngsta's - No Mercy ('Hip-hop Ride' is dope! The rest sounds a bit outdated sometimes)
5/ Royce Da 5'9" - Rock City - the original one, not 2.0 (never really liked it, but gave it a new listen after a couple of years. Won't change my opinion though, I really don't like this album. Production is bad; 'Boom' is nice of course)

D-Shot: presidential; a bit too much auto-tune music on this one, but still a good album from the Click member
Spice 1: the ridah; a good indy album from the bay veteran.
Luniz: i still got 5 on it, the greatest hits; just want to hear the essence of the duo.
Ras Kass Apollo Brown: Blaspheny:gonna be on my top 5 from this year.
Dj Quik: couse it's so fresh (so clean  ;D )

Listened to these 5 in the last day or so.

Wiley - Snakes & Ladders - New Wiley album and its a fucking banger! Grime, Grime and more grime, has a few US features on a track called Lonely (Cam'ron, Problem, Gudda Gudda & JR Writer) which for me doesnt fit with the vibe of the album but its one of the best ive heard this year.

J.R Writer - History In The Making - always liked this album, few bangers and JR is underrrated IMO.

Ghetts - Rebal With A Cause - My album of the year, great vibe to the album and Ghetts is like marmite you hate him or love him so unless you like grime you probably wont like him.

T.I - Paperwork - Not impressed with this album, a few good songs but also some average tracks.

Professor Green - Growing Up In Public - Big Pro Green fan and this album is what you would expect for a Pro commercial release. Witty bars, good flows and catchy hooks. Just wish he would release mixtapes like others so he can also release non commercial music.

Interesting guys! Have to check out some of these...  8) Ras Kass & Apollo Brown + that Lonely track from Wiley for starters... Lord Hienz's list is a bit too far out of my comfort zone I guess. Not hating though  ;)

Keep 'em coming & let's make this a thread a keeper!

Sometimes he can drop heat but that album is too weak for someone to call himself King Of The South.

Tha Dogg Pound - That's My Work Vol.5 (Untagged) - Still not feeling it even though it's untagged
Dazzie Dee- Re-Birth - A classic so I still enjoy listening to it from time to time
5 Footaz - Lifetime - Just received my original copy so I gave it a listen and I think it's been at least 5 years since last time I've heard it
Bobby Shmurda - Shmurda She Wrote EP - It's cool but not impressive
5th Ward Boyz - Ghetto Dope - Just bought the remastered version and like 5 Footaz it's been years and years since I last bumped it

T.I. - Paperwork: this refreshing opus is on another level and still in rotation.
Rapsody - Beauty And The Beast EP: one of hip hop shinin' moments this year and a nice meal to hold any jamla fan over until their next release.
Freddie Gibbs & Madlib - Pinata: a dope ass collab album from gangsta gibbs and the beat conducta...slammin' !
Run The Jewels 2: this record is a must have for any hip hop fan. period. dope rhymes and beats what more do y'all want ?
2pac - All Eyez On Me: my fav. pac record ever. a classic album that always find it's way into rotation. damn I miss those death row days....

These are the last 5 of mine:

1. MF DOOM - Operation: Doomsday: currently listening to this as I write, it's a very good album and has tons of fun samples, clever lines and cartoonish skits.  The actual quality of the music sounds a bit off (a bit like Wu's first album) and that may be because it is like a demo in a way, but it only adds to the albums greatness.

2. Ghostface Killah - Supreme Clientele: still trying to properly get into this album, the production is banging (RZA oversaw the whole album and remixed all the beats submitted to him), but some of the rhymes are a bit impenetrable.  Need to give it a few more listens.

3. Busta Rhymes - The Big Bang: easy listening, lots of heavy beats by Dre, J Dilla, Mr Porter etc and Busta carries it off well.  A couple of tracks sort of bring down the tone of the album a bit, but overall I can listen to it all without skipping a singler track.

4. Viktor Vaughn - Vaudeville Villain - check the thread I made on it, amazing album.

5. DJ Quik + Kurupt - BlaQKout: Nice album, the raps are nothing spectacular, but a lot of Quik's beats are ambitious and different to his other albums, and Kurupt and Quik make a good duo.

Nice list , doesn't seem like there's many other MF Doom fans on here. Always loved the guy's creativity.

New Albums

1.  Gyptian - Love, Sex, and Reggae   -  ...bought this album because I wanted something new to listen to in Africa.  The reggae goes well with the life there and after Jah Cure, Gyptian is at the top of the Reggae world these days.

Old Stuff

2.   2pac and Boot Camp-  One Nation album  -  ...I was excited to finally see some sort of official version of this album.  Nobody really knows what is the actual official version.  I thought "Tatoo Tears" was a great Pac song that I'd never heard before but it didn't end up having much replay value.  The track was pretty sloppy and judging from the quality and effort put into this I can't imagine this was anywhere near finished, and it is nothing close to Pac's standards.  There's an interesting duo track with 2pac and Big Daddy Kane that I never heard before, Kane spits some ill bars on the track but again the beat sounds far from finished.

3.  Phil Collins  -  Greatest Hits   - the 80's and it's music is always an inspiration to me.  Reminds me of my first days walking this Earth.

4.  Warren G -  G Funk Era   

5.  The Show - Soundtrack   
*******

"I will make records as big or bigger than Death Row".   -Dre, Source 1996

"I didn't do nothing but make people money and I didn't leave nobody high and dry.  Any album (on death row) people are going to check for.  But it's time for Dre to worry about Dre.  I'm focused on the new Snoop Doggs, not like that but you know what I mean."

Dre -  Source 1996 cover

"Eminem will be bigger than Michael Jackson as long as he doesn't change."

Logic - Under Preasrure (great album but sounds a little too much like Kendrick's GKMC sometimes)
DJ Quik - The Midnight Life (solid album but perhaps Quik's weakest)
A-Villa - Carry On Traditon (excellent hip-hop compilation from producer A-Villa, features a bunch of artist including Freddie Gibbs, Action Bronson, Nore, Kool G Rap, Joe Budden, AZ, Coremega & much more!)
Big K.R.I.T. - Cadillactia (one of the top albums of the year)
Ransom - Pain & Glory (Ransom has been killing everything lately)
