Liquid Swords - GZA
I just found out that a compilation of unreleased Eyedea tracks was released in March:
I've already heard most of them but it shows how crazy young he was when he lots of his songs. And there's finally a high quality version of "Lines"
I recently discovered this on Spotify. I remember it on the shelves when it first came out but passed on it cause I didn't know what it was. Wish I woulda picked up the CD just for this track alone. Noreaga on a dope ass beat? No brainer!
Word, been gone for awhile. Wassup kiddies, spinning that ill ish?
Just poking my head in to assert that Hail Mary Mallon's "Bestiary" is the best hip hop album in the last five years. Possibly longer.
Rejjie snow tho.
Also great. And I know HMM doesn't touch upon big social issues or try to make rap with a messages, but... it's just so ******* good.
I really like the work Aesop puts out, he's just too dang complex sometimes it flies right over my head. I haven't heard a lot of rob sonic but I like his flow.
Haha, I think if you ever meet anyone who claims Aes doesn't fly over their heads, they're lying. He's really abstract and bends things around just however he feels like. What's nice is that HMM pulls him in a little bit so the songs aren't nearly as nutso complex as what he does solo. And Rob ends up actually flowing better a lot of the time because he's not trying to be quite so esoteric in delivery.
Jonathan is the first track here, just listen to the interplay, it's nuts.
I'm sorry, deeper in the polygons
Radical brats compare teeth on the promenade
Mans worst friend, tragedy prone
Skirting a neverending exodus from Madame Tussauds
He's an immediate threat, speaking nefarious tongues
Reeking of variant faith, drinking that heresy punch
I play defender at the center for the never enough
You called it losing my way, I called it leveling up
Up up ante, Danny riding through the west wing
Big wheel bloody, fuzzy images of dead twins
Cuff links, button-up, sloppy coat, no hat
Satan's mother, twisted sister, brothers Grimm and ghost dad
Number six throwback, Mickey Mantle Upper Deck
Jackknife pegasus to basic bitches rubberneck
Pinky swear, bible belt, o-ring on his spider bite
Flat rate to the city if you iffy gypsies ride or die
Am I the only one that doesn't like Lamar at all?
