great rapper, never gets enough props, was hoping "B.M.F." would raise his profile a little but it really didn't, did it?

i'll try to get into specific tracks later but here's how i would rank his official-ish albums:
1. A Gangster And A Gentleman
2. The Green Ghost Project
3. Super Gangster (Extraordinary Gentleman)
4. The Ghost Sessions
5. Time Is Money

ghost sessions would be higher but the rock remixes kinda drag down its consistency and really they're all worthwhile imo

some dude, Friday, 21 January 2011 01:48 (nine years ago) link

i just skip the rock remixes -- that album non-rock remixes is way way better than green ghost imo

my ranking's somewhat arbitrary because again there's not a dud in the bunch. but A Gangster And A Gentleman is definitely tops, kinda slept on record and hits a nice between-Blueprint-and-GRODT sweet spot in NYC rap.

"Burn One Down" is also awesome

here's something I can't figure out -- did The Lox ever rename themselves D-Block, or is that just their record label? I swore I remember in the late 00s looking them up and seeing wikipedia had renamed their article "D-Block", but now it's a separate article about the label only.

styles p's verse on "Fuck You" is pretty inspired (I am listening right now!)

i love tampon spaceship (San Te), Friday, 21 January 2011 02:13 (nine years ago) link

yeah i mean those are like the bonus tracks on "The B. Coming" imo -- simply dont exist

*gets the power* (deej), Friday, 21 January 2011 02:13 (nine years ago) link

lol I skip the bonus tracks on at least half the rap albums I own. except for like albums like Nicki Minaj Pink Friday where they're half of the good songs :/

it is kinda funny how they've done little to distinguish D-Block as a distinct brand from The Lox -- for years the only apparently artist on D-Block outside of the 3 of them was Jae Hood, then he defected, and they've got a bunch of little random 3rd string D-Block artists like Bully and Team Arliss who do most of the rapping on the D-Block projects. they've has been threatening to sign with Def Jam or whoever for a new Lox album for years, my theory is that whenever they feel like doing a group project but don't have a major label ready to put it out they just call it D-Block.

I now have all of Styles P's solo albums, and think they're all really solid. love his lyrics, street level but he pulls out some really cool turns of phrase...the production's really nice too. think Super Gangster bogs down in the second half but starts out really solid.

now waiting for my new copy of the first damn Lox album, urgh.

Phantom Gangster Chronicles Vol. 1 is really short (29 minutes) but it's still quality Styles P.

three years pass...

digging on the newest one. I liked last year's Float, feel like he's doin more interesting stuff lyrically on this one. the beats are mostly nondescript and get out of the way.

like the track w/ Vado a lot
