Gang Starr??

 

Edit: PS @SuperBacon, there's a Skinnyman Council Estate of Mind gig in April at the Jazz Cafe I'm dead keen on, as I didn't end up making that other one either in the end. You up for it?

Assume his son, Big Shug, Freddie Foxxx etc filling in? Premier live is just him shouting over the records anyway.

Yeah, I’ll be up for that. Will keep an eye on funds this month and get back to you 👍

Gods Of Rap II tour will feature Nas, DMX, The Lox and Gangstarr. 14 year old me would've been sick at that announcement.

35 year old me with kids and rent to pay sees the ticket prices and groans.

Same. £96 for a midweek gig? Fuck that. I'll be amazed if DMX actually makes it over too.

Hey sorry I missed this before. Not super excited by that one tbh. I just found out the skinnyman show is with a live band :( . fuck's sake 

What’s wrong with a live band? I’ve seen Jehst with a band and it was great

There’s a Kool G Rap documentary in the works.

Sign me up for that! 

Nice. He’s definitely the one out of the “GOAT”s that I’m least familiar with, and I’m not sure why that is as he’s incredible. In fact his verse on Mobb Deeps The Realest is one of my favourites of all time.

Maybe because he hasn’t made what’s deemed to be a “classic” album, but then neither did Kane so I don’t know what I’m on about.

I was the same until about the last year or so. But I started listening to him a fair bit a few months ago. As well as ‘The Realest’, which is indeed class, I love these as well.

’Operation CB’ (cock blocking);

‘It’s A Shame’;

And probably my favourite KGR track of them all, ‘On The Run’;

”So I snuck up on the sucka. Put my gun to his head ‘What’s up now, motherfucka?’ He said ‘Wait, I wanna talk’...I put his brains on the sidewalk”.

One of the best Hip Hop storytellers for me. A master of painting a vivid picture that takes you on a journey for 3 minutes or so. Also a big fan of ‘Streets Of New York’ and that ‘Fast Life’ track did with Nas.

Childish Gambino-3.15.20

I've seen quite a few reviews of this from people's opinion I respect calling it a "masterpiece".

I think it's a fucking mess myself. I am a big Donald Glover fan and think he's annoyingly talented/handsome, but this doesn't click at all.

There's just no heart or soul behind any of it, and it feels really cold and calculated, incredibly formulaic in parts and just "zeitgeist-grabby" (is that a thing?). A real shame, as I'm sure there is a great album in him somewhere, but this ain't it. 35.31 is probably the best track if you can't be arsed with the whole thing.

Not a massive amount happening right now. Run The Jewels released two tracks of RTJ4 which are great if you like RTJ, and Jehst released this little gem as well. That's pretty much about it.

Edit: Just heard this RA and Slug track and it's really good.
