The new Roots album is the best rap album I've heard in quite a while.

And on a side note, he said gall, not gal (Bold, impudent behavior: "the gall to demand a fee". Thank you Google dicitionary). JapanAlex is a man, lol. Or at least to my knowledge nest.gif.

peepwall[1].gif i respect pac, but i dont particularly like his music either.

Seems really cool. Watched a couple of the promo vids. Want to get into it. I just picked up a whole mess of Spiritualized albums and I'll probably back track through The Roots catalog too. Tremendous group. Also, an all around talented band. It's one thing to be a creative force and be distinctive blah, blah, blah. It's also quite another to be a late show band. That takes a certain talent too. The fact that they can do both, even though one facilitates the other, is nothing short of amazing.

I still need to give it a listen. I didn't much like their last album and it actually got me thinking that I appreciate the people in the band more than a lot of their music.

It's fine to do that but the argument he used (that it's a "cool" album) is so nonsensical to me. I don't know where you guys are from but it's considered a dense, plodding album that you actually have to -listen- to and isn't considered "cool" here. So that was just ridiculous to hear that. But maybe for y'all that made more sense. I'm not exalting it, just laughing at this whole "cool" thing.

The final seconds aren't creepy at all.

Not exactly hip hop, but I know The Weeknd has been mentioned here along with Billy Ocean. Anyhoo, I'm really digging this.

The Weeknd makes great music. I think House of Balloons udun may have been the best albums of 2011.

No new rap.

The Weeknd is solid.
