    A load of (very good) unreleased stuff in a little mix:

    Might reach this.

    Anyone heard much Black Milk? I've heard a few bits and they've got me mildly interested in Hip-Hop again...

    if you look at the big name hiphop artists he worked with he is associated with the nadirs of their careers in every single case.

    low energy music for low energy people.

    (dilla not black milk who never got to work with anyone famous loooool)

    I thought Amplified was good outside of the weird Jonathan Davis hook but i can see what youre getting at,i remember ages ago reading this piece where this guy said that Dilla beats were better serviced by guys like Frank-N-Dank than say Common or Talib Kweli because they gave his beats room to breath instead of trying to fill in every bit of the pocket


    also come on man Black Milk,worked with Sean Price although as much as i dislike saying it he sort of became a "famous" name after he died

    only ATCQ really, + I think he got (still gets?) a disproportionate amount of the blame for that

    the posthumous "Dilla changed my life" endless unreleased beat tapes stanism can get p irritating but he's hardly the only died young artist to get that treatment

    would agree that his beats generally work better with less busy/more lo-fi rappers

    worth noting he generally tried to disassociate himself from Native Tongues + backpack rap in general

    don't follow these things like some people here but I gotta think he casts a vast shadow on lo-fi, soundcloud, etc rap, among other things

    I say all this as at best a moderate Dilla fan

    Best Dillas (IMO)

    Spacek - Eve Rmx
    Won't Do
    Shake it Down
    Pause (even Westwood played this one)
    Slum Village - Players, Climax, 2U4U, etc. (Basically that album) + Look of Love...

    for the record tho that Pharcyde LP he worked on is pretty good. definitely not the low point of their career.

    fwiw my top Dilla things I can remember are:
    Pharcyde - Drop (c'mon how can you hate on that)
    Fuck The Police
    Slum Village - I Don't Know
    Jaylib - Starz

    I do like the random fact that he got his first MPC from Amp Fiddler

    I saw some interesting things in the psychedelic thread when u brought up Balearic so if I have a chunk of time today or soon I'll do a proper thoughts response

    as far as i know they only made two albums and labcabin is the 2nd best one.
    i like runnin a lot and moment in time is one of my favourite songs in the world
    but i dont like drop. just a moment in time made me double down on everything
    and make less concessions to like, doing what my mum and teachers and other fascisyts
    wants me to and stuff,
    cos its only a moment in time so you just have to grit your teeth till its done
    it was a spiritual epiphany.
