Re: Bball's Hip Hop Discussion

So I downloaded this album, Original Ground 2: No Sellout by DJ JS-1 because the guest spots looked absolutely dope. DJ Premier, KRS One, Ultramagnetic MC's, Brother Ali, Canibus, Large Professor, CL Smooth, Sadat X, Chino XL, Sean Price, Killah Priest, Aesop Rock, C Rayz Walz, eMC (with Punchline, and Wordsworth making solo spots on other tracks), Pharoahe Monch, OC, Termanology, Blaq Poet, Big Noyd, Akrobatik, and Rakaa Iriscience all have appearances on this album. But this was completely underwhelming given the artists that were set to appear on this record. Your basically left searching for the good in this album instead of it being full of standout tracks. There is some unnecessary tracks (M.O.B. with Vinnie Paz comes to mind), and tracks where the artists aren't used correctly (eMC's track). It's no doubt a pretty solid album but I expected it to be quite a bit better.

Re: Bball's Hip Hop Discussion

I keep trying not to listen to the leaks but I'm seeing overall positive reviews. I'm glad because his last album was gabbage to me and overall he's never had a hard album to me.

You feed a sucker, he'll just grow to be a bigger leech lol

I think once he stuck with a theme, he knew he couldnt just be all over the place. I am being overwhelmed with music of late, so much coming out.

His spot on Chemical Warfare was alright, I'll have to check for this. When does this drop?

I think the 28th but almost every track has leaked except for one I think.

3) Rakim
4) Biggie
5) Andre 3000
6) Scarface
7) Ice Cube
8) Tupac
9) Jay-Z
10) Big L

6-10 isn't set in stone, either one of them can crack the top 5 any day of the week.

Re: Bball's Hip Hop Discussion

I prefer to include groups along with solo artists in my lists. 2Pac, OutKast, A Tribe Called Quest, Jay-Z, Wu-Tang Clan, Public Enemy, Nas, Notorious BIG, The Roots, and Rakim (not a huge fan, but I couldn't think of a ninth & tenth act that was worthy!)

Re: Bball's Hip Hop Discussion

Here's some Statik Selektah for you, bball:



Statik Selektah feat. Bun B & Cory Mo-Get Out The Way



Statik Selektah feat. Cassidy, Saigon & Termanology-Take It To The Top



Statik Selektah feat. AZ & Cormega



Statik Selektah feat. Jon Hope-The Rap Life

That's just a few joints he's produced. Without a doubt, go and listen to both of his albums. The guy is an ill producer.

Re: Bball's Hip Hop Discussion

Good ****. I downloaded both albums, i'll upload them sometime soon and give them a listen. He definitely sounds like he may live up to the hype you have given him.



And since ATL brought up groups, I guess i'll do a top 10 groups list:


1. A Tribe Called Quest
2. Wu Tang Clan
3. The Roots
4. Outkast
5. Public Enemy
6. De La Soul
7. Eric B. and Rakim
8. Black Star
9. Little Brother
10. UGK/Cunninlynguists (Tie)
