4 Elements meeting tomorrow. Def needed, feels like forever since our last meeting (both last week which was unofficial and the last meeting with a dope turnout)
Ok so I got mad lucky back in Fall and found a copy of Army Of the Pharaohs’ first album “The Torture Papers” and needless to say I bought it. I just sifted through my whole album collection and I can’t find it. This is infuriatingly disappointing.
On a related note, when did Apathy take over Celph on the one-liners?
"I hold it down like Magneto on a metal floor"
"Now I got the world on my dick like I stuck it on the South Pole"
Fuck having to sleep when you don’t want to because of morning classes
CunninLynguists, Pharaohe Monch, and Freddie Gibbs/Madlib dropped crazy gems to kick off this year in hip hop.
Army of the Pharaohs and Tech N9ne dropped some dope work. Also Apathy is dropping a solo album in June. AND another AOTP album this fall.
Atmosphere album out in like 2 weeks.
Mayday and Murs are gonna be dropping an album with potential to top everything Strange Music released last year.
Top Dawg gonna put out stuff from Kendrick, Ab-Soul, and Jay Rock (Rock releasing as a joint deal with Strange of course).
Slaughterhouse with an album Ex-Prod by Just Blaze and so far no Eminem involvement (their last album was lackluster coz of Em tbh)
Canibus came out the woodwork and is dropping a solo album over summer.
New D12 material is being recorded WITH Eminem.
New Lupe. No explanation needed there. New Common. Same deal.
I’ll hold my tongue on Immortal Technique dropping Middle Passage. He’s the opposite of Tech N9ne. Always tours but never puts out material. Tech tours a ton but puts out (arguably rushes tbh) at least an album a year.
Tldr; hip hop heads gonna be eatin good this year!
After re-listening to Tech’s album Strangeulation it’s grown a bit on me and I’m liking it more than I did the first couple times around.
Fear might be among that classic Tech as one of his best tracks tbh.
Imo in terms of Tech’s collabo albums it’s def more consistent than Sickology, and I think the features carry it up as better than Misery Loves Kompany (MLK), but doesn’t match up to Welcome to Strangeland.
Needless to say, it’s better than The Gates Mixed Plate (I try to forget he put that album out.)
Of course the one Friday I decided to leave all my textbooks in the car is the weekend my mom feels inspired to take the car on both Saturday and Sunday for the whole day. smh
Having guests in the house is one thing. It’s worse when they bring their children too
