    A few albums in the rotation over the past few days:

    Pete Rock and C.L. Smooth- Mecca and the Soul Brother and The Main Ingredient. I think C.L. was/is very underrated.
    J. Dilla- Donuts

    L.L. Cool J- Radio

    Special Ed- Legal


    I miss those days.

    Yeah, that's a great album. "On My Block" gives me an almost overwhelming urge to sit outside with a brew and blow some pine.


    Speaking of Devin, new album drops on the 7th!

    Hey, did anyone get the new LL cd? I had a chance to listen to it and wasn't that impressed. Any thoughts?

    I got it made...

    As for Nas being the successor to Rakim...hmmm. Although he's had some great moments and is still going strong after so many years, I'm hard-pressed to see how anything he's done has, on the whole, surpsassed Illmatic. And at that time, although heralded, he was not the second coming of Rakim.

    Not sure anything anyone has made since has surpassed Illmatic, Nas is definatly Rakim heir and overall I say superior.

    LL has fallen off, IMO.

    What part of Texas are you from?


    DFdub. I'd like to be into my local scene, but Houston just blows it away. It's all Texas though, and that's what counts. [​IMG]

    I'd say Nas owes more to Kool G. Rap than Rakim.

    Yeah, hasn't really found his niche, he is at times hard, then he is a ladies man, then he is old school, then he is new and usually they all suck.

    I'd say Nas owes more to Kool G. Rap than Rakim.

    It's a Demo with DJ Polo is still BANANAS!!!


    "People in the audience Kool G Rap is my name
    I write rhymes and I insert 'em inside your brain"


    BTW, can someone please explain Sage Francis to me. I am not a big underground rap guy but I "get" guys like MF Doom/Madvillain but what is the appeal of Francis ? [​IMG]
