    I'm sure you'll hear "Breaker Breaker" off Beneath. The upside is these cats didn't have a bunch of mainstream solo hits like if you went to see Jay-Z you know he's only playing the radio hits. So I could definitely see some solid variety. Never seen any of these dudes live so I'm not sure how they go about doing Wu Tang joints together but we'll definitely see those plus special guests for sure. They always have like 20 dudes on stage lol.

    Reason dropped a 3 song EP that's pretty good. I feel like a hipster because I was listening to him before he ever got signed to TDE.


    I was excited for the Jay Z/Jadakiss/Conway the machine song but the beat is trash and totally ruins it.

    Signed him to what? I didn't even know Snoop was in the record label business.

    I think he's doing his own sub label under Def Jam like a lot of rappers have done.

    I'm out of the loop completely when it comes to Snoop. Other than the joint he did with Ice Cube, E-40, and Too $hort (MT Westmore) I can't even tell you the last time I paid attention to him in the music world.

    He played that one and I liked it. I didn't even realize that was a thing. He played this song too.

    The deluxe tracklist sequencing is really bad. Seems like it's almost random, lol.

    Life of the Party is a good track and yes I'm happy he released the explicit version, although Kanye's new verse isn't as good as the leaked version. Too bad. Still a nice track.

    Donda has had a lot of staying power for me and I'm still listening to it. But as I said previously, it's so bloated that I only mainly listen to my condensed 65 minute playlist with several songs cut out. And that's fine. Given that he basically just randomized the play order for the deluxe version and has so many "part 2" versions mixed in, it only makes more sense that you can make your own version. A lot of people on KTT2 seem to be doing the same thing.

    If I'm a critic, it's hard to rate the album as released, but as a fan, I will say that my version of Donda is probably my AOTY. It's great.

    Fantano's summary here... I agree with his take:

    Jon Connor released a new mixtape.

    I hate most of the beats but I guess they're all from top hip hop songs so lol I guess they must be better with some rube mumble rapping with autotune.

    I do like this one.



    It's a shame he had to sign with Dre and then be shelved for like 3 years or whatever it was.

    It happens quite a bit in the music industry. Artists/bands get signed and then have to wait their turn. The Game, same shit happened that's why they put him with G-Unit to get the ball rolling after sitting around for a minute.

    It happens a lot with Dre and with Eminem.

    Kendrick is one of the lucky ones.

    I mean look at Dre....He's been in the same almost 40 years and only 2 "solo" albums to show for it.

    Kendrick....Shit look at the gap between his records. He's been in the mainstream for like 10 years, he has 4 albums. He's Nas. It's been 4 years since his last album. Nobody is safe in the Aftermath world.

    RIP Slaughterhouse. I'm still sad we never got Glass House.

    I guess Joe Budden is doing okay with his podcast and pretending to be bisexual or whatever. Joell Ortiz just released a new album but he was always the odd man out to me and I haven't listened to it yet. Haven't looked into Royce or Crooked for a bit to see what they're up to.

    I was never really a fan. The only two that I liked were Royce and Crooked. I've never been a fan of Joe Budden, Ortiz was alright but not really my thing.

    I'd rather see Royce and King Crooked do a collab album.

    The new Nas/Hit Boy album “Magic” is really good. I think I like it more than either KD1 or KD2.

    Album out Friday. I doubt I like it as much as The Lost Boy but he has another track with Freddie Gibbs, Nas, and also Stevie Wonder on the track list so I'm still excited for it.

    If only that was a good thing.

    Show sounds like it was more of a dumpster fire than the first one.

    Hope the albums good at least. I still want an explicit version of donda 1.

    There were pretty bad audio technical issues in the second half. Basically he did his live album release like he’s been doing (no actual live vocals, just a live music video production while they play the new album, but he doesn’t rap) but then they were going to live perform some of the hits from Donda 1 and that’s when Ye’s mic stopped working so he basically abandoned performing. Yea it got rough there. But I still think no one else does this sort of thing. Other artists do full video albums but none that I’m aware of do them live and put the show out online for free live as it happens. I think it’s very cool what he does despite the bad audio glitches tonight.

    Kanye makes performance art like no one else I’m aware of since maybe Michael Jackson.

    If it's the same thing that's on Spotify it's just instrumentals under the song titles.

    Found the real thing though ripped from steam player. PM if you want it.

    I wish he would wait for it to be finished before releasing it.

    I haven't listened to it yet, except for watching the Miami live show. But yea I hear it's not so great as currently released. I'll probably just wait longer and see if he puts out something more finished. Hopefully he'll post it to streaming services eventually, even though I can respect the way he's releasing this on his stem player website only.

    It's very weird because I guess he's uploading new versions so this mega folder has like 3 different versions of Pablo.

    City of God sounds like a top 40 song.

    Crooked and Joell Ortiz put out an album together, Rise and Fall of Slaughterhouse.

    It sucks Joe Budden's ego ruined the group.

    Jeez, I feel like it's been 5 years and those guys are still talking about Slaughterhouse, and naming their album after it?

    My view on them is that while sure it would be nice if they put out a second studio album, it was never a ride or die group - it was always a "super group" of guys who came up in hip hop on their own and then formed an alliance. Therefore them breaking up isn't something to keep discussing for years and years. Even if they were the Hot Boys who came up on 1 label and got established as a collective, this would be overkill. Wayne made a dope song about it (I Miss my Dawgs) but it's not the breakup of the decade. Eminem made a dope song about the breakup of D12 (Stepping Stone). So fine, address it, but naming this their album in the year of our lord 2022 seems like... wtf are you doing.

    Move On.

    New Denzel Curry album "Melt My Eyez See Your Future"



    I'm still midway through my first listen, but it's pretty great. I put him in the category with Griselda an Freddie Gibbs in terms of modern guys holding down classic hip hop. Not sure who else is in that category and doing it so well.

    Can't wait. I was just listening to Damn again this past weekend, and it's so good. Part of me obviously wishes Kendrick was more prolific and didn't wait 5 years for a new album in his age 30 to age 34 years of life. But he has cultivated such an immaculate discography, and his albums are so well crafted and conceptual, that I get it. I love that Jay-Z put out an album every summer for 10 years straight, but Kendrick comes at it differently and will leave us with one hell of a catalog. Plus, in his defense, he put out a lot of good mixtapes in his run up to Section.80 (C4, Overly Dedicated, EP, etc).

    Pusha T album dropping Friday. Should be good. I think the rumor is it’s half kanye and half Pharrell production

    I'm excited for this one. I wonder if Cudi and Ye know they're on the same song.

    Welp. I hope this doesn't lead to the song not coming out or something.

    yea I love kanye but he can clearly be a toxic person, and I presume cudi is in the right by cutting ties with him and speaking out against him (i.e. kanye probably treated him like a dick). but I wouldn't worry about the song being cut from the album, I mean cudi says he cleared it and the album drops in 3 days. cudi just wanted to make it clear he's still done with kanye and this isn't a reunion of their friendship since people were like "oh it's great to see kanye and cudi back together"

    I like that song, especially the second verse. The video, eh, not very good IMO.

    I listened to Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers. I think it's a great album, I mean what the fuck else would you expect from Kendrick? No skips found. Favorite tracks so far are United in Grief, N95, Mother I Sober and Mirror. These are likely to change, but I really liked how the album started and ended.

    This album will undoubtedly be on heavy repeat. So much to dive into. Very dense content as usual for Kendrick. Really good production.

    Yeah, it's fantastic. DAMN. was lacking something for me after To Pimp a Butterfly was so ambitious, and I think this captured that magic again. Great stuff.
