Ready to Die may be what puts Biggie over Tupac, for me. While they both have awesome tunes, I dont think Pac ever made a singular LP that good.
I agree, growing up on the WC, everyone was always rah rah'ing for Pac. I liked him when he was still a East Coast rapper, Strictly 4 My Niggaz, before all these folks even heard of him.
Once he signed to Death Row, he was a god out here. Was always a Biggie over Pac guy.
Tupac can tug at my heart more than Biggie. I dont think Biggie could create a Dear Mama, or Keep Ya Head up. But, when looking at an entire catalog, I think he is more consistent.
Not a bad analysis, for a 150lb white kid, who's been to 106 Phish shows.
Pretty much sums it up, good analysis indeed.
This kid is good, not sure if you've heard of him, J.Cole
Love J Cole. And that latest release, Forest Hills Drive....so good.
He's another one, man. We are in a special time for hip hop. D'angelo, Kendrick, Run the Jewels, Cole (even the new Drake album isnt too bad)...really quality stuff, that can stand the test of time.
I always hated on Drake!! But my son kinda talked me into him, never wanted to give him a solid listen, but he is kinda nice!!
It's like Kendrick lit a spark when he cut this verse, everyone stepped their game up after this:
This tune always gets to me. Especially this video...At like 1:07, you see a blond haired kid in the crowd. That was actually a friend of mine who checked out shortly before the release. He was a big Cudi fan.
EDIT: This time with video
It's a good one, sorry to hear about your bud.
Love the downplayed beat. Really warm, drum and base, style
Supposed to be a true story, the NY Knick he is talking about isn't confirmed, but John Starks confirmed the story is true.
Love that the old school hip hop beats are coming back. Finally recovering from the dumbing down that the South (I'm looking at you Cash Money(not YMCMB), Lil' Jon, all the trap boyz, Souljah Boy) did to hip hop.
The only southerner that I ever really dug, was Big K.R.I.T.
Although, I do love this Chief Keef track, so fucking gritty. It's so real, if you listen to what he's saying, "don't make me call D. Rose boy" that's his boy who is a known killer. Chiraq does not fuck around, it's sad, but these kids don't care if they live or die.
