Slaughterhouse's sophomore album isn't anywhere near as good as the debut. Lyricism is at the level you would expect, but lots of questionable production choices (seems to be the theme at Shady Records). There are standouts and there is filler.

Styles P put out a mixtape that makes him worth checking out again. Been awhile since he put out a good project.

holy crap!! new Typical Cats album is coming out!! I'm so happy rite now!!



anyways I really dig the new Slaughterhouse. yeay it's not front to back good, but when it is good it's REAL good.

relistened to SAS x Statik Selektah record these past 2 days... I like it much better than every other Statik-only record that's come out thus far.



but best album that I cannot stop listening to?!?!



La Coka Nostra... so good. I got to see them live and it was awesome, but also sucks that Everlast is no more :cry:

Joe Budden said they didn't/couldn't get Dre beats in the breakfast club interview.
I just did buy their album, Joell Ortiz's free agent, Nas Life is good, Maino Day after Tomorrow & DMX Undisputed.

I went out and physically bought it today.

I'd almost go as far as to say it is better than A Prince Among Thieves in respect to story telling and concept.

picked up a lot of new stuff this week!!

reminds me I never got to do a run down of all the prior stuff I got;

Guilty Simpson & Apollo Brown - Dice Game. Dont like it too much. Beats are real familiar if u listen to Apollo, and Guilty has always been one of those artists I pay attention to not becoz I am a fan but coz he has a tendency to align himself with lots of artists I care about. It's good overall, but none of it really sticks to me.



Journalist 103 - Reporting Live. The other half of the Left however released a real good album! It's apparent who in the duo is carrying most of the weight.



Sean Price - Mic Tyson. Very short, not many hooks, just straight rapping over beats for like 40 minutes. No way this can ever be as good as Monkey Barz, but I think it's better than both Jesus Price and Random Axe. I really dig this record a lot!!



Purpose & Confidence - The Purpose of Confidence.

picked this up coz that Rashad & Confidence album. The records are actually pretty similar, but something about this one jus gets real boring by the 3rd listen... I'll give it another go but in the meantime it's just very plain jane underground hiphop.



Vinnie Paz - God of Serengeti. I dont really pay attention to this dood coz u pretty much know what to expect with a Vinnie P / JMT album, but I ran into a friend and he talked about how much he likes these doods so I decided to pick it up. And yup, absolutely nothing unexpected here. However that's not to say it isnt a good record, and anywhere u can find a new RA the Rugged Man verse makes me happy!



Styles of Beyond - Reseda Beach. This was shelved years ago and finally came out. My new theory is, if a dope album gets shelved, it gets leaked (AZ - Final Call). If it doesnt and actually comes out years later, it sucks (MOP - Ghetto Warfare). So yah, definitely a disappointing album here, really sucks too since 2000 Fold is easily in my top 20, maybe even top 10, of all time.



and a few quick hits:

Ruste Juxx -VIC and Blaq Poet - EBK. ehh to both of these.

Skyzoo - A Dream Deferred. okay album, but nothing really stuck and lots of music came out afterwards so havent really gone back to it.

and I got more on my playlist so I'll be back to share more later!

Had to grab that Art of Dying album from my man Ca$his & just found this hot cut from 50 cent ft Snoop & Jeezy(rather have had jadakiss with his Consignment flow) but with this beat people will hop on a remix or just do they're own version. If fif is back wit an album full of cuts like this day 1 buy for me.
edit: caught the Rick Ross/MMG jab LOL gotta love fif

as far as new Hiero stuff goes, I'm crossing my fingers that this ends up being real dope:



Hiero went from being the greatest group ever to putting out disappointments.

PLEASE be good!!!

Amazon has two hip-hop albums for free right now so get them fast before the price adjusts. DJ Toure is Hieroglyphics DJ and has most of the members on the album. Uptown XO is in the group Diamond District that drop the dope album: "In The Ruff". Both albums are good and for the price of free you can't lose.

Hey it's been pretty quiet around here so I was wondering where everyone goes for their underground hip-hop news or forums? Pretty much have not been around anyone that listens to anything close to hip-hop anymore.
