Cool cool... Never heard of those guys so I'll check them out!

:pint:

I quit drinking and partying around 3 years ago and used to get my knowledge and updates from just going out, so I'll definitely have to check those names out.

Starting to get glad I got this thread up now!

HIP HOP FOR LIFE!!
Definetly check out the Kendrick album. His album, the newest Nas and Action Bronson's 'Blue Chips' were my favorite albums this year. Although album cover of the year has to go to Action Bronson and Alchemist's 'Rare Chandeliers'.

Yea, I think 3 stays with me coz me and my ex-girlfriend would listen to it a lot... (in a Michael Scott voice) AND HAVE SEX!!! :)

But yea... Rawkus was definitly a historical outfit!

I used to dj drum-n-bass too, and "Rawkuts" (with T.O.V.) was a sister label of theirs that I was totally into...

I stil got my Mos Def (I.Q. Collective)/Universal Magnetic album too...

Speaking of Mos (now calling himself Yasiin Bey) he just threw a nice freestyle over a Young Chop beat from Chief Keef's "I Don't Like" and proceeded to dis Keef & Lil' Wayne and probably a handful of other ignorant dudes. Mos is always a hero, even now that he's Yasiin.

I haven't really felt Alchemist yet. I really didn't like his album he cut with Fashawn, and still seems like a step below anything Fashawn did with Exile.

Boy Meets World by Fashawn and Exile is def one of my favorites from 2009.

^^^ I used to DJ also, I stopped around the time Serato exploded so I still have a lot of vinyl. I put some of my favorites in frames on my walls. I'll post a pic when I get home.

Boy meets World was great. For me Alchemist is hit or miss. But every now and then he make a banger (ex. The Red Carpet by Evidence and Worst Comes to Worst By Dilated Peoples, Keep it Thoro-Prodigy)

Yea, he must be having to pay some debts for getting catapulted into the limelight or something. It was nice to see him and Talib on the Chappelle show back in the day...

That "What's Beef" clip they did was serious sickness!

I will say, When Life Gives You Lemons You Paint that fudge Gold, was probably his last album I really gave a crap about... And really like.

But as of late, I'm really not digging his stuff as much.

Sweet! Yea, serato and final scratch definitely changed the culture... And was the downfall of the "local record" shops :/

Great to hear you still got vinyl too. I have sold a few of my jems (in order to buy prints :wink: ) but still probably have over 400 or soo.

And glad that Gramaphone (Chicago) is still doing well!
