alpine static, Friday, 22 July 2016 18:24 (four years ago) link

if ppl show up here occasionally and post dope youtubes and then every once in a while someone says he's got a new mixtape out, then that's a success in my book

alpine static, Saturday, 23 July 2016 05:30 (four years ago) link

well he has a new album in august.

some posts from the rolling thread

I think unconditional thug might be my favorite a-wax release now even if thug deluxe is more of a cohesive album overall.

i played the hell outta the first half of Everlasting Money at the end of the year, it's great. I should probably spend more time exploring a-wax's catalogue.

i don't think so, but I would also like a briefing on him plz by d40 or spottie mayb

― johnny crunch, Tuesday, July 5, 2016 4:19 AM (3 weeks ago) Bookmark Flag Post Permalink

he's a loner rapper from pittsburg cali like the mob figgaz. he's very dope cuz he's always been able to put his own twist to the vibes he was rockin with, be it mid 00's mob figgaz or 10's trappy stuff.
i highly recommend "thug deluxe", "conceptz n contradictionz", "unconditionnal thug", "jr high 2 the penn the mixtape", "jr high 2 the pen vol 2", "everybody loves me", "jesus malverde", "pullin strings" and "everlasting money".

"pushin keys" is supposed to drop soon.

i found everlasting money to be a little spotty.

no pun spottie

lol. For me I don't love his old stuff as much as his new, mostly down to production. Some classic old joints tho. I jump on board around 2009-2010.

Hustles Convention from earlier this year is just ok. I really love Jesus Malverde, Pullin Strings, and Everlasting Money which is not spotty to me at all. First 3 tracks are perfection, think there's only a couple tracks I skip.

He does melancholy sad raps as well as anyone

Yeah it's good, just very of it's time and region I guess. His voice has changed quite a bit since as well. Love this from Thug Deluxe, way wavy for 2004

Everlasting Money top five release last year for me

― moistest hoist (Spottie), Thursday, July 7, 2016 10:30 AM (3 weeks ago) Bookmark Flag Post Permalink

frontloaded imo but the first seven tracks (and maybe the baby bash track) are essential

I don't skip a song til #12 Hunnid Nights. Coulda Been one of my favorites on there

i will go back sometime and retry

Everlasting Money is amazing. i checked out Thug Deluxe and some of those other ancient a-wax releases last time sisi and someone were talking about them but i didn't like it, too much that dry gully sound. and yeah his voice has changed a lot

― de l'asshole (flopson), Thursday, July 7, 2016 11:58 AM (3 weeks ago) Bookmark Flag Post Permalink

I guess I prefer the fern gully sound, thug deluxe is fire

I felt like pullin strings was nicely balanced but I'm not always buying his melodic records as on EM, emotion doesn't always ring true for me

four years pass...

Pulling More Strings and his latest diamonds pendants & charges pending are both real good emo rap.
