I tried the Young Thug a while back. I just want to give him some Ready Brek and send him to bed. He does my fuckin head in. Shame tho cos the beats are top, as are the guest appearances.

Really like the beat on that Praying For My Downfall track.

What do people think of Deniro Farrar?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_3dl_sBhN6Y

He's got that Main Attrakionz connection so I dunno if he gets a fair shake from some more serious hip-hop heads for some reason. But he's pretty sick. Has more of a presents than Main Attrakionz. Beats are usualy pretty outthere. He's not far off Kevin Gates with his flow and all that. He's just as ernest, has a simular presets. But has people like Ryan Hemsworth do tracks with him.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5apLU45YQ4

Plus in that vid he uses a sledge hammer as a machine gun, miming gunning down people with his skinny ass top off so he's obviously well'ard and not a guy you could smash down with a fence post in seconds.

He can do those skitering hi-hat, snare combo autotune tracks pretty well too.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bD14Ss-nzNs

I'm into it. It takes that hyper drugged out vibe and kills it when he does it well anyway. Not sure his new tape is as good as the tape with Squadda B last year but its solid as owt.

I guess he's a professional so must have a team behind him but there's that interview with Zaytoven where he starts talking about Gucci and then goes kind of speechless when he tries to describe what he does.

I keep trying to wean myself off him, and look for other people to listen to, and then just come crawling back. He's ridiculously talented.

It's the beats. He's got great taste.

There are only 4 good songs on that list, and only one comes from a rapper this forum has discussed at any pace.

All I'll specify in is that Kevin Gates might be THEE most boring rapper ever. He's so good it's dull, boring and useless. Him, Don Trip and Freddie Gibbs will form a trio one day called "Trappers Who Are So Suffocatingly Grown Man, We Should've Been Born As Detroit Rappers Who Cry About Novelty Rap Singles Because We're Insecure As Fuck, And Have The Personalities Of Cardboard"

(Sorry Corpsey!)

Corpsey
18-05-2013, 10:15 AM
lol

I find Kevin Gates a lot more interesting than Freddie Gibbs, who I DO find boring, but I can see where you're coming from I suppose.

Mind you I don't listen to Gates much. I don't listen to any rappers at the moment. I dunno if that's just my taste changing, or my hipster instincts kicking in cos rap is so boiler room trendy now, or if there's really a lull at the moment in quality. I rarely see anything on digitaldripped/datpiff and the various rap blogs that catches my ear and makes me want to download at the moment.

Gucci Mane and Future/Freebandz Gang honourable exceptions. Young Scooter, F.B.G. tapes were the best I've heard this year I think. I was quite into the Casey Veggies tape too.

I'm not against being into rap still, though - maybe I'll have a look.

CrowleyHead
18-05-2013, 03:19 PM
Rap's definitely in the lull mode right now. I think the post-hyphy/ratchet kids are going to be the next wave, and then all the little Chief Keef babies running around. They're ridiculously productive scenes, just not producing too much "EXPLOSIVE" talent, but that's good. Scenes need to be more healthy and self-sustaining. Also, there's a younger wave of futuristic rappers that are doing good, but I think Atlanta's kind of SPENT past Young Thug now... Mostly too much old man trapper music.

I'd say, give it a year, or w/e.

I am actually a bit nonplussed by this one. He's rapping great, but IDK, I feel like the production is cleaned up a bit too much, plus all the guest producers just aren't as good as Tree!

New Kanye singles are mind bogglingly not good as far as rap singles, but he's rapping as good as ever and the songs are more interesting for just how I can't get WHY he's making them.

Idk man - you heard "Hell Yes", "Terrific", "Thirsty"? I'm not saying all of his stuff is hot, but he's still putting out interesting stuff to keep me curious. Even the track with Chief Keef was hard. Not that I wanna listen to all the tapes, just too damn many, but I think he's still got something.

finally got round to hearing the kanye SNL songs. black skinheads is kanye doing death grips isnt it? new slaves is some of the most interesting lyrics ive heard from him in a while. this album sounds like its going to be his noise-rap album, or his self consciously avant-rap album. not sure if that suits him. wasnt bowled over by daft punks beat for skinheads either, though it might sound different on the album. its like kanye wanted a human after all type of beat, when id rather hear kanye on an all around the world type beat.

May I just recommend this A-Mafia compilation available on Dat Piff (http://www.datpiff.com/A-Mafia-Street-Anthems-The-Best-Of-A-Mafia-mixtape.490593.html)? A lot of this stuff is two years old but who cares really, its a nigh on flawless mixtape.

I'm really enjoying this Fader mix. In a lot of ways, a mix is more fun than wading through a mixtape with all the duffers and skits. He's all about Migos, who're looking like the next big thing out of ATL. I think you could safely describe them as the children of Gucci Mane:

yeezus is basically a quickie kanye album, but its still pretty good imo. not sure about the use of the strange fruit sample, but it does have the immortal line 'fist all up in her like a civil rights sign'. as for re-politicised kanye, it seems all the political angles in the lyrics are sexual (and borderline ridiculous).

Isn't it? It hasn't even got a proper distribution deal yet, which makes it difficult to get a hard copy. It has 40 tracks, most of them about 2 minutes long, knitted together with segues that are a feat of imaginative engineering in their own right. Sometimes Priest repeats himself -- or at least sounds like he is repeating himself -- but then the entire set lasts over 2 hours and you can count the cameos on one hand. It's an extraordinary performance. Last time anyone in hip hop tried anything on this scale (as far as I know) it was the entire Wu Tang Clan plus half a dozen guests. The only thing that makes it less compelling than Heavy Mental is the slightly goofy, cartoon-ish antics and the unsubtle (but reckless and sweeping) production. The first album had a more serious sense of drama, gravitas and purpose than this wild escapade, but never mind that, Priest has made a mad, massive cosmic extravaganza that is like nothing else that has been made this year. I can't even talk about this album properly yet.

This is the kind of album that makes me want to write apocalyptic prose poems. Like in 1999, when I was listening to Heavy Mental and Quiet Weapons for Silent Wars daily, and ended up writing a manifesto riddled with psychic premonitions of 9/11. It is precisely why I shouldn't listen to this music, because I strive to keep these impulses in check and become a socialised adult.

hey luka, this is completely random, but I remember you posting this one song few years back and I can't remember its name or the artist. I do remember how it sounded though, and I'd really love to hear it again so here goes:
the beat was pretty sparse and the vocals were heavily autotuned. the rapper was from Sydney if I remember correctly and bore some resemblance to French Montana. the video starts off in a stretch limo and then continues in an empty fancy club.

I think it was you who posted that song so if you (or anyone else for that matter) can recall its artist/title I'd be most grateful!

best rap albums/mixtapes of 2013?

mine would be -
DJ mustard - ketchup
yeezus
jon wayne - rap album one
pusha t- my name is my name
that new 3-6 mafia mixtape
juicy j - stay trippy
DJ Day (forget the name of this one but its the best instrumental hip hop record ive heard in a while)
2 Chainz Boats II: Me: Time
Earl Sweatshirt - Doris (i dont really like this, more just coldly admire it, more for the beats than the rhymes weirdly)
Danny Brown Old (i think hes a one trick pony to be honest, with no depth, all surface, but he knows how to craft an album)
Pusha t my name is my name
Telemachus - the vocal songs on this are a bit boring but the instrumental stuff is the best new trip hoppy stuff ive heard in ages, texturally very 90s boom bap but it has tons of atmosphere and emotion
Quasimoto

This is funny cos I feel the exact opposite way about him. I'd like an explanation of your opinion, though. He certainly does have that 'one trick' which has catapulted him into wider consciousness, and he knows how to play that role, but having listened to Side A of 'Old' I'd say there's plenty of depth there, as there always has been.

I'm smart, you're not, etc.

Corpsey, Get On My Level.

Also, the Danny Brown album is just fucking unlistenable production-wise.

Have we acknowledged anywhere how great ''Danny Glover'' by Young Thug is?

Who'd expect a Brick Squad member to be putting out some of the weirdest most psychedelic meets psychotic rap music?
