***Official Rap/Hip Hop Discussion Thread***


Recommended Posts

Cross-posting with the 2021 music thread, but it belongs here, really, because I can see the J. Cole love.

He's got a new album and Billboard Top 100 #2 single called "my.life." ft. 21 Savage and Morray

No caps, of course.

Unfortunately, the song really isn't that good and borrows liberally from Styles P and Pharaohe Monche's "The Life," using the exact same chorus Pharoahe sings (and presumably penned) without crediting them in the "featuring" section of the track. These days, I guess good money begets good money, and they've paid off the appropriate people not to take credit, lest the original from 2002 or so become a smash all over again. These are both on Spotify.

my.life.

I was just reading up on Youngblood NBA...

Guy is about to have his 8th child and he's 21.

Yikes.

 

I can't really give an opinion on his music yet (gotta listen to some more) but I'm surprised he's done so well the past few years and his name isn't exactly a household name.

 

 

Update:

Not a fan.

Isaiah Rashad cut a new album recently. "Lay Wit Ya" is a great track, the album is downbeat but excellent. He's from Chattanooga, signed to Top Dawg Entertainment, much like Kendrick is. But he's got a totally different style. Don't go in expecting Kendrick.

Whole Nas album is a triumph. Moments is beautiful. Just so great. 

Thanks for the recommendation.  Love Nas.  There are a few moments I remember in my life when it comes to music.  Listening to One Love for the first time was one of those.
