i liked these local (to me) guys big kahuna og + monday night's album last year called thug tear

they just released this: https://schemeteamallstars.bandcamp.com/album/shark-report

it’s weird that the can-i-bus album has a reputation for bland beats, but i’ve never thought so. maybe it does compared to black on both sides or internal affairs, idk

boz conspiracy by toby hus (voodoo chili), Tuesday, 12 January 2021 14:15 (six months ago) link

that one los & nutty song reminds me a bit of jimmy wopo (RIP)

the canibus song deej linked made me think about how rare it is to hear steel guitar in hip-hop, but lo and behold, the big kahuna mixtape that roxymuzak linked has hawaiian/steel guitar on my fav song from the tape

boz conspiracy by toby hus (voodoo chili), Tuesday, 12 January 2021 16:40 (six months ago) link

late pass on this carti album. so weird on first listen, nearly experimental.

the serious avant-garde universalist right now (forksclovetofu), Tuesday, 12 January 2021 22:10 (six months ago) link

maybe it's the sonics and vocal experimentation, maybe it's the way it proudly wallows in toxic solipsism (with occasional vulnerable moments), but the album i keep thinking about when i think of whole lotta red is future's monster

it's "wesley presley" thee album

boz conspiracy by toby hus (voodoo chili), Tuesday, 12 January 2021 23:32 (six months ago) link

better than monster imo

ILX’s bad boy (D-40), Wednesday, 13 January 2021 01:38 (six months ago) link

tiwa-nty one savage (voodoo chili), Friday, 5 February 2021 18:08 (five months ago) link

i thought his album was pretty disappointing, the leaks were much cooler/more distinctive to me. but i'm still really interested in what he's doing generally

J0rdan S., Friday, 5 February 2021 18:20 (five months ago) link

jeff weiss has been tweeting about this guy and uh as you might expect i fucking love the shit out of this

Blues Guitar Solo Heatmap (Free Download) (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Friday, 5 February 2021 18:31 (five months ago) link

the album was a little patchy, i agree, but still had some bangers, especially "home run" and the title track.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=erBR3olroG4

tiwa-nty one savage (voodoo chili), Monday, 15 February 2021 23:49 (five months ago) link

re: pooh shiesty, his tape is pretty solid front-to-back, but besides "back in blood" there's nothing on it as good as this cut from 2019

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NDllimEdhaE

tiwa-nty one savage (voodoo chili), Monday, 15 February 2021 23:51 (five months ago) link

idk “guard up” is a pretty great single imo... “back in blood” is nice too & has the durk feature boosting it but i actually like “guard up” better

J0rdan S., Tuesday, 16 February 2021 02:48 (five months ago) link

babyface ray's latest ep got a lukewarm p4k review, but what can i say i just like the dude, and it was cool to hear him over different styles of production (tho he always had a broader sonic palette than a lot of his detroit peers). i get where the review is coming from, considering how good ray can be at his peak (2019's mia season 2 is one of my fav rap albums of the past five years)

this song is hard as fuck (the whole album is, tbh), and my mind exploded when i placed the stooges sample lol

wow this album rules

It's hopelessly old-school, but DJ Muggs & Rome Streetz's Death & the Magician really scratches that 90s hardcore rap itch.

pomenitul, Tuesday, 16 March 2021 20:31 (four months ago) link

Don't know what to make of Duke Deuce the name but the music's really solid.

rome streetz has a little Big L in him

I liked the sound of that at first, but it quickly felt like someone yelling in my ear too much, does he have other modes?

Sheldon Pearce ( former Pitchfork current New Yorker writer editor) calls Alchemist “one of hiphop’s greatest producers ever” in his little New Yorker review of Armand Hammer “Haram.” I like Alchemist style but am not sure if he’s in top pantheon. What do you all think?

curmudgeon, Tuesday, 13 April 2021 13:48 (three months ago) link

he's been a fixture for two decades and he's arguably having his greatest (critical) success now, idk where i'd put him on my personal list but he's worked himself into the conversation

voodoo chili, Tuesday, 13 April 2021 13:54 (three months ago) link

I really hate ranking shit, but I definitely think the last decade has done a lot to make his stock rise

and in retrospect he's definitely part of what led to the whole new east coast grimy underground shit - griselda, mach hommy, roc marciano, the god fahim, etc etc etc, hell daringer's whole sound

Blues Guitar Solo Heatmap (Free Download) (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Tuesday, 13 April 2021 14:15 (three months ago) link

one of my fav alchemist beats

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sr3bZzNNL-4

voodoo chili, Tuesday, 13 April 2021 14:46 (three months ago) link

He's very resilient, he went from producing street hit singles in the 00's to middleground albums nowadays.
Gotta respect that. But greatest producer ? No.

ANU (sisilafami), Tuesday, 13 April 2021 21:48 (three months ago) link

i took pearce's "one of the greatest" to translate roughly to "top 50 or so"

voodoo chili, Tuesday, 13 April 2021 22:40 (three months ago) link

will never say no to funky, paranoid, l.a. street shit

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9m3fEeuaKtE

whole project by comptonasstg is pretty good, tbh (vicious road 2 riches)

new redman song is good as hell lol

god "tombstone" by rod wave is so gorgeous and amazing. i am not that familiar with his work but definitely my fav among the songs i do know. should i listen to his new album or an older project?

my fav rod wave song is still 'heart 4 sale' tho it slightly predates his breakthrough

ILX’s bad boy (D-40), Wednesday, 5 May 2021 18:19 (two months ago) link

if you go back far enough, you'll find rod wave songs that are actually upbeat

real cool shit from Danny Brown's Bruiser Brigade label...almost like if Koreatown Oddity was more gangster

Blues Guitar Solo Heatmap (Free Download) (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Wednesday, 5 May 2021 22:03 (two months ago) link

co-sign, good album. he actually does have a bit of hov in his voice

the mai tai quinn (voodoo chili), Wednesday, 5 May 2021 22:15 (two months ago) link

It's cool I think Bruised Brigade is actually going to be a cool and interesting label with a real vibe, not just the typical rapper label where it feels they just are doing it because that's what you do when you get to a certain level

Blues Guitar Solo Heatmap (Free Download) (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Thursday, 6 May 2021 12:37 (two months ago) link

heavily fucking with the topaz jones album.

love zay but it's hard to deny that the song gets 10x better once duke nukem shows up

mach-hommy album is good, great clunky trashy beats across the whole thing

na (NA), Wednesday, 26 May 2021 18:48 (two months ago) link

agreed, i dig it too. he's a much nastier and more creative lyricist than the other griselda guys. never feels like he's doing cosplay.

also totally fearless, will say anything.

the mai tai quinn (voodoo chili), Wednesday, 26 May 2021 19:34 (two months ago) link

prob not gonna wade through 68 minutes of lloyd banks in 2021 but the tracks with benny the butcher and freddie gibbs are high-quality grime

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cyNDIvzp5y8

the mai tai quinn (voodoo chili), Friday, 4 June 2021 19:34 (one month ago) link

*not grime music, obv, grimy east coast street music

it's not great like its forebears but i like it anyway. the dreamlike vibe of the video is pretty cool, wish i could dance in that club he goes to

dyl, Wednesday, 16 June 2021 06:15 (one month ago) link

there are some rly nice touches in the production, as is often the case w/ mustard

dyl, Wednesday, 16 June 2021 06:16 (one month ago) link

i didn’t mind it but it’s not that exciting, prob a “safe” choice. he’ll come with something harder next i bet

J0rdan S., Wednesday, 16 June 2021 06:32 (one month ago) link

of the big A list rappers rn he’s prob still my favorite

the herbo project is really great imo, not in rap many who can do the vulnerable tough guy thing like he can. somehow still only 25 years old.

bart harley-jarvis cocker (voodoo chili), Friday, 16 July 2021 14:29 (two weeks ago) link

the "i really mean it" flip is the only real weak spot, i mostly think rappers should just let that sample be in the future

bart harley-jarvis cocker (voodoo chili), Friday, 16 July 2021 14:35 (two weeks ago) link

wow yeah feels like he's been around forever

digging Deuce Ellis - Acid

he's got a good flow, love the beats, the live bass sample almost reminds me of a modern Low End Theory track this one has Che Noir who I like a lot too

it's kind of trendy to hate on kenny beats nowadays, but this one is equal parts sinister and playful. offset jim does his "norcal drakeo" thing pretty well here, it's just fun to hear him talk
