a great song, and another entry into the venerable tradition of rap songs that sound like they might be in 6/8 before settling into 4/4 when the beat drops

these really are the end times

ooga booga-ing for the bourgeoisie (voodoo chili), Thursday, 12 March 2020 19:27 (one year ago) link

Last month, Jay announced that he would be releasing A Written Testimony in 40 days (which would be on Wednesday, March 18). The album was recorded over a 40-day, 40-night stretch starting on December 26, and will feature Jay-Z, who signed Electronica to Roc Nation back in 2010.

which begs the question....what the fuck have you been doing??

crazy, not sure it will be good but def curious to hear it after all these years

Blues Guitar Solo Heatmap (Free Download) (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Thursday, 12 March 2020 20:03 (one year ago) link

hey man, he did at least, like, 8 guest verses in the meantime.

ooga booga-ing for the bourgeoisie (voodoo chili), Thursday, 12 March 2020 21:44 (one year ago) link

I mean it's kind of stunning in a way, the dude has this enduring rep based on....two songs

Blues Guitar Solo Heatmap (Free Download) (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Thursday, 12 March 2020 21:49 (one year ago) link

well the Jay Electronica album is a huge fuckin mess

Hov is all over it, like nearly every song (every song), I wonder if JE was struggling to write?

a bunch of these songs were clearly recorded in 2011 at the latest. his voice has totally changed, you can tell how much older he sounds on 'neverending story' than 'ghost of soulja slim'

and in the case of shiny suit theory, i was crazy about that song when i was 20 in 2010. glad to see it finally on streaming services tho.

ooga booga-ing for the bourgeoisie (voodoo chili), Friday, 13 March 2020 14:27 (one year ago) link

then again on 'soulja slim' he drops a black panther reference, so maybe even each individual track is a hodgepodge

ooga booga-ing for the bourgeoisie (voodoo chili), Friday, 13 March 2020 15:26 (one year ago) link

yeah everything just feels...weird and disjointed, and not in a cool way

yeah, people are gonna pull some bars and they'll look good, but it doesn't work as a listening experience

Vapor waif (uptown churl), Friday, 13 March 2020 16:19 (one year ago) link

alb is getting rave reviews, this board isn't populated with uzi stans at the moment.

also not populated with many people who talk hip-hop on a regular basis, unfortunately.

fwiw I got halfway through the 106-minute version out today and thought it was pretty alright

bold caucasian eroticism (Simon H.), Friday, 13 March 2020 16:50 (one year ago) link

was also gonna say that it's mostly good but also a lot to digest

ooga booga-ing for the bourgeoisie (voodoo chili), Friday, 13 March 2020 16:53 (one year ago) link

tacking on an extra album's worth of material but placing it at the front of the tracklist is....certainly a move

bold caucasian eroticism (Simon H.), Friday, 13 March 2020 16:54 (one year ago) link

Jfc there is literally no rapper who ever lived that I want to hear a 106 minute album from

What's the "real" album tracklist? I should check it out

it's really two albums, tbf, bundled together. most likely for chart reasons. just ignore the "deluxe edition" and listen to the original.

tho im listening to the deluxe disc right now and the future, 21, and keef songs are hitting pretty hard.

ooga booga-ing for the bourgeoisie (voodoo chili), Friday, 13 March 2020 17:00 (one year ago) link

of course, listening to uzi is always an experience where i'm like 'this knocks, what's this one called?' only for me to find out that it's called 'yessirski'

ooga booga-ing for the bourgeoisie (voodoo chili), Friday, 13 March 2020 17:01 (one year ago) link

digging urgency a lot. the concept and skits are so hilariously disconnected from the album tho, like to an extent I was literally lolling

Vapor waif (uptown churl), Friday, 13 March 2020 17:38 (one year ago) link

the non deluxe version is a pretty great album

ILX’s bad boy (D-40), Friday, 13 March 2020 21:19 (one year ago) link

the original tracklist anyway ... havent heard new one

ILX’s bad boy (D-40), Friday, 13 March 2020 21:19 (one year ago) link

heard the new one. Excellent as well.

ILX’s bad boy (D-40), Saturday, 14 March 2020 04:09 (one year ago) link

philly and Pennsylvania in general just seem so ... relevant for neo-america; its combination of urban decay contrasting with gentrification and its proximity to trump-country Appalachia makes it feel like a microcosm of forgotten usa. i feel like for this album it sort of contributes to this stylistic slurry of regional and popular styles and makes the emo blend in seamlessly. uzi's drugged out exuberance concealing pain, being vulnerable and aggressive at the same time, just feels very touching as we all slog through the long 2016. obviously, it's unsustainable, and the amount of young rappers dying lately is just so incredibly sad, and then those that do succeed being turned into anhedonic shells a la future or drake, it all just points to a sense that things need to slow the fuck down and that we need to disconnect from this hyper individualistic life

Vapor waif (uptown churl), Sunday, 15 March 2020 17:46 (one year ago) link

oh awesome didn't know about that

I don't get Pop Smoke

pop smoke is cool, i wasn't blown away with any of the projects he dropped when he was alive, but i've grown to really appreciate the hits. his stuff had a bounce and it was fun to rap along. his main artistic mode was '50 cent if he smoked 500 cigarettes before each verse,' but it would've been cool to see him grow.

ACABincalifornia (voodoo chili), Thursday, 9 July 2020 17:18 (one year ago) link

that all sounds about right to me; his hits still resonate for me. I should listen to the new album.

i've been spending a ton of time in my local cemetery; it's about 350 acres of open land and one of the only places to be calm and alone in nature in brooklyn right now. Pop Smoke was buried under his government name out there in February in an unassuming and hard to find space and there is ALWAYS a group of two to five kids keeping vigil by his entombment.

maybe I'll try again, I haven't really found any of the newer generation of NYC post drill/trap/whatever rappers that interesting

Love Koreatown Oddity, I'm a sucker for those West Coast weirdo vibes

don't try with the new album, imo. it's a&r'd to death.

nyc drill isn't my bag either, tbh, but sheff g and sleepy hallow are doing interesting things. idk who said, but i saw someone on twitter describe sheff g as sounding like 'if scarface were british' lol

ACABincalifornia (voodoo chili), Thursday, 9 July 2020 19:14 (one year ago) link

the only thing I really heard of Pop was the new album, aside from a couple things on YouTube prior, does he have a definitive mixtape?

his first mixtape is entirely produced by 808 melo and it has his two most famous songs, i'd check that out. only 9 tracks.

So-called jazz rap is almost never jazzy enough for my ears in that it tends to minimize the improv part of the equation but what I've heard so far of this Boldy James / Sterling Toles collab gives the lie to that assumption. Not worth more than a 7.7 according to p4k tho.

the new mozzy album 'occupational hazard' is an extension of the vibe of the 'beyond bulletproof' project he released earlier this year, sensitive street guy stuff. there's no song on here as good as "pricetag" or "unethical and deceitful," but it's a mozzy album. you know what you're getting from him at this point. i will say, he sounds excellent over live instrumentation on "livin what i know," the closing track

nothing wrong with being an industry plant, usually just means that someone found the artist early and worked behind the scenes to develop the music before releasing it into the wild. as opposed to the regular rapper instinct to drop everything immediately.

was thinking hard like what do these beats remind me of and there's parts where the synth sounds and melodies remind me of Boards of Canada

this feels pretty exciting

why do people hate this?

I don't necessarily have the facilities to understand this style completely

'Inconsistency' seems to be the main gripe.

pomenitul, Saturday, 26 December 2020 18:04 (eleven months ago) link

It’s an incoherent criticism imo. The album has a cohesive unique sound and there are no tracks id really skip (tolerance for guests ymmv). People are just being confronted with something new and don’t know what to make of it

Weirdly it’s divided some of his more fervent fans as well, but I think it’s because he’s moved past the sound of “die lit” which despite having self-styled themselves as a vanguard for they don’t really want him to move past

i think another part of it is that the sound whole lotta red pretty distinct from the sound of carti's leaks, which people fell in love with. there isn't anything on here that has the vibe of "pissy pamper," for example.

Yea that’s what I mean .. he’s on some next sound. Tho a couple leaks did make the tracklist iirc

ILX’s bad boy (D-40), Saturday, 26 December 2020 18:47 (eleven months ago) link

huh I feel like the production has a pretty definite aesthetic, which prompted me to ask if it was one producer (though I see it's multiples)

I don't know anything about him really other than magnolia so it's interesting to hear ppl are upset

In all honesty this is where I am. I haven't given it a full chance yet, but it's a pretty big swerve in style

Thinking abt this Jzone thread

I used to bag on artists making 180 degree change till I hit a point it felt like everything most wanted or expected from me made me want to torch my studio and what I really wanted to do was exactly what they didn't want. With experience now those artists inspire me the most.

The new Carti is the only rap album I've really liked this year.

it sounds like rico nasty to me

flopson, Sunday, 27 December 2020 05:47 (eleven months ago) link

some combination of the first sremmlife and 1000gecs is what keep coming to mind for me. I agree, I like pretty much every track on this and it moves on to the next before anything ever gets a chance to get stale

its what i wish rico sounded like to me lol

which, same thing, but still

ILX’s bad boy (D-40), Sunday, 27 December 2020 06:29 (eleven months ago) link

i don't really see it as a big change in style, it sounds like the leaks mixed with the production rico or other soundcloud rappers get.

and of course it's bette music.

better*

ANU (sisilafami), Sunday, 27 December 2020 11:54 (eleven months ago) link

i didn't keep up with the leaks or anything but to me it sounds just like he's just leaning even further into his existing idiosyncrasies rather than it being any sort of left turn

really good album

I'm listening now and it is really great (maybe a xmas release wasn't ideal? lol). But idk maybe it's cuz I listened to the s/t a lot more than Die Lit, and I've never heard any leaks, but I feel like he's using his voice in a bunch of different ways on this, e.g., his super raspy voice on Rockstar Made.

rob, Sunday, 27 December 2020 15:03 (eleven months ago) link

i mean it just seems like a fairly natural continuation of what he was already doing even though there's new stuff there

ufo, Sunday, 27 December 2020 15:07 (eleven months ago) link

Ok yeah that makes sense, it's not like he put out an album of ballads or something

rob, Sunday, 27 December 2020 15:12 (eleven months ago) link

never heard die lit but this just sounds like carti to me

||||||||, Sunday, 27 December 2020 15:53 (eleven months ago) link

i hope the deluxe is only with the baby voice though

ANU (sisilafami), Sunday, 27 December 2020 16:01 (eleven months ago) link

This is way more aggro than die lit or the leaks, come on

There’s a reason stans keep saying the second half is “better” and it’s cuz “place” is the leak aesthetic whereas most of the rest is in the new style ... and I don’t agree that it’s just standard production, there’s clearly a curated sound here that separates it from the earlier stuff

ILX’s bad boy (D-40), Sunday, 27 December 2020 19:47 (eleven months ago) link

the whole vibe of the album is a midpoint between the leaks and stuff like this

I see some common sonic touchpoints but that’s a pretty disparate list of “influences” to suggest it’s a more conservative “midpoint” between the leaks and those. More like a ramped up version of those

ILX’s bad boy (D-40), Monday, 28 December 2020 20:33 (eleven months ago) link

Really I think the producer-auteurs prob most responsible for this sound are the working on dying guys who’ve been doing uzi’s shit but they went in a new direction here

ILX’s bad boy (D-40), Tuesday, 29 December 2020 01:49 (eleven months ago) link

it's a great album, no doubt about that

flopson, Tuesday, 29 December 2020 03:40 (eleven months ago) link

i'm starting to think so too. can't stop thinking about "punk monk"

It’s probably my favorite rap album this year, haven’t been knocked back by something like this in awhile

Yeah this or EA

tempted to stop my end of year listening and slot this in given the collective shine but i think ahma wait for 21

Doom homage title is weird to me & counter the traditional spirit of these threads frankly but ppl get mad at me for pointing this out every year and I no longer care

lol i typed & deleted the same thing cuz i didn't wanna come off as a dick but it's true

yeah, this is the main reason why i bumped the thread and didn't just start a new one.
