    DN = Diameter Nominal. The term Diameter Nominal refers to the internal diameter of a pipe. Together with the nominal pressure rating and the materials class, all dimensions of a piping line, e. g. flange dimensions, are defined by indicating the nominal diameter. Steel is often not specified, but assumed as material.

    Sometimes conversing with you is like conversing with a JG Ballard book from the early 70s

    id probably read that Keef article but at this point im tired of the conversation surrounding "influence" in rap something i never thought i would get bored of.

    David Drake is also the guy who upon hearing that somebody felt Dedication was boring he responded that it was meant to sound that way






    dont get it twisted i like his writing, its just that when he talks about Keef he turns into fucking Ray Manzerek talking about Jim Morrison and i cant take it

    Pitchfork review:

    Rakim
    The 18th Letter/
    The Book of Life
    [Universal]
    Rating: 8.0
    It's 1998. Rakim is back.

    After a long- assed leave of absence, Mr. Old School himself has "come back to bless the mic." So how's it sound? Not too shabby. The beats are fresh, the rhymes are solid, the samples are perfect. Rakim is still a master lyricist and he proves it with lines like "I used to roll up/ This is a hold up/ Ain't nuthin funny/ Stop smiling, be still/ Don't nuthin move but the money." R also brings back a true old- school trend: talkin' shit. Man, if this guy really thinks of himself the way he talks, he's the most confident motherfucker on the planet. ("Nobody been this long awaited since Jesus.")

    The 18th Letter comes packaged with The Book of Life, a kick ass introduction to the music of Eric B. and Rakim. It contains 15 of their early essentials, including "Follow The Leader," "Eric B. is President," "Let the Rhythm Hit 'Em" and "Paid in Full." Even if you're just sitting down for your first listen to these early hip-hop classics, you'll feel like you already know 'em. Rakim's been sampled more times than Pizza Rolls at Sam's Club.

    Remember, kids. The sign of a truly important rap release is that it comes with two discs. Don't let this one pass you by.

    what's the dissensus conssensus on tupac and biggie?

    i'm guessing that you lot don't like pac.

    biggie you have less of an issue with, but don't particularly rate him. although i bet junior mafia's one of those arbitrary, off-kilter craner obsessions.

    i'd even say that nate dogg's the only 90's west coast stuff you guys are in to, though you wouldn't like to admit because it would seem too anti-populist.

    Biggie is a logistical endpoint of a thread started by G Rap with terrifying influence of mediocrity. Tupac himself, mediocre rapper but transcendental influence as so many better rappers took his tropes and made them great. Also gave us Ja Rule which was awful but hey.
