Daaaaaaaaaaaang that was an awesome video thanks for posting that. So sick. Wish there were more Dilla interviews. 9th Wonder has some good ones too.

But here's that Ralfi beat, still working on Mtume.

Anyone familiar with the late Paul C? Let's just say if there were no Paul C, there would be no Large Professor.

I posted this in the Magna Carter Holy Grail thread, but put enough work into it to warrant its placement here.


Blueprint 2 is so underrated it's crazy. Yes, there were 2 CD's that had plenty of filler songs but if you take the best songs from both discs, you have an album that's in his top 4. Easily.

"Meet the Parents" - showcases he's elite at storytelling when he wants to be
"U Don't Know Remix" feat M.O.P. - even better than the original
"Some People Hate" - one of Kanye's best ever. Those drums!
"Show You How" - hardcore banger
Biiitches & Sisters - raw, brutal, and NWA-esque
"Some How Some Way" (featuring Beanie Sigel & Scarface) - transparency on wax
"Blueprint²" - the Charlemagne beat is insane and its place in Jay vs NaS is important
"Guns & Roses" (featuring Lenny Kravitz) - love this joint. Beat is so hard.
"Poppin' Tags" (featuring Big Boi, Killer Mike & Twista) - North meets South perfectly
"Excuse Me Miss" - one of his best radio songs
"'03 Bonnie & Clyde" (featuring Beyoncé) - hard to front on this crossover
"All Around the World" - No ID choppin' something lovely
"Whatcha Gonna Do pt. II - great switchup from pt 1 and a much better beat
"Hovi Baby"
"The Bounce" (featuring Kanye West) - great club banger
"2 Many Hoes" - most hilarious lyrics ever in a club song. Great beat by Timbo
"A Dream" - not one of my faves but I appreciate the concept
"The Watcher 2" (featuring Dr. Dre, Rakim & Truth Hurts) is another banger all tho there only seems to be remixes on YouTube

I'll take that album over every Jay-Z album except Reasonable Doubt and The Blueprint. Just slightly ahead of The Black Album IMO.



Kingdom Come is underrated as well. The first 6 songs are fantastic:

"The Prelude" - one of the best intros ever.
"Oh My God" - Just killed it on the beat
"Kingdom Come" - one of Just Blaze's best. ELITE sample chopping.
"Show Me What You Got" - nice blend of radio meets the streets
"Lost One" (featuring Chrisette Michele) - dat piano! Dre came widdit
"Do U Wanna Ride?" (featuring John Legend) - another gem from Kanye
"Minority Report" feat. Ne-Yo



Besides, we live in the age of iTunes now where you can take the best songs of each album and compile exceptional playlists. The art of making complete albums with themes and concepts is all but dead. Kendrick Lamar and NaS recently did it but you rarely see it anymore.

Figured I'd post my mini-rant from the YHIF:HH/RB thread here as well for posterity's sake:

Quote:
There is certainly a place for mainstream music and past decades have had some substantial contributions as such. Unfortunately, mainstream radio is pretty abysmal nowadays. That's not to say that there aren't breakthrough acts that find huge success every now and then bcuz they're just really talented. Adele's music doesn't do it for me personally but I have mad respect for her. There are other artists along the lines. But for every Adele, there are countless plastic, test tube artists artificially inseminated by record company conglomerates pumping out pure garbage.

Kanye orig blew up on the scene and crossed over bcuz his talent was undeniable. Those first couple albums were exceptional and took him to the top. These last few projects have been anywhere from lackluster to downright awful. So bcuz mainstream radio (and their lemming listeners) swings from his jock I'm not able to distinguish between good music and formulaic nonsense? Same with Jay. Same with Em. I look at J. Cole and say here's a talented young cat with some skills. Then I ask myself, who the hell signed off on him producing his albums? He's a terrible producer. There are guys on FF who just started making beats the last couple years that are light years ahead of him.

Forget the whole "this is real hip hop" debate. I don't subscribe to that. But I do believe there is good hip hop and there is wack hip hop. Drake, Mackelmore, Tyga, MGK, 2Chainz, etc. They're all def hip hop. I just don't think they're good hip hop.

Look at it this way... When you're younger (and I mean the royal you), you watch TV and movies based on what grabs your attention and what you think you like. This is why Adam Sandler comedies are successful even tho they're all horrible. When you get older (and there's no specific age barrier. It just clicks earlier for some ppl esp if they have older siblings, relatives or friends showing you what's what), you start to develop your tastes based on who's responsible for what. You start following the careers of ppl specifically. You liked Children of Men, so you can't wait for Gravity. You loved The Wire so you decide to check out Generation: Kill. Your fave movie is The Usual Suspects and you find out the writer is writing The Wolverine so you go see that opening weekend. So if you like Alchemist and you find out he's producing Currensy's album, you seek that out.

I remember Norah Jones' debut selling multiplatinum and was everywhere on TV and radio but it didn't interest me at all. I liked the singles but never thought of buying the album. Flash forward several years and I hear Danger Mouse is producing her newest album Little Broken Hearts. Well, I loved the brilliant creativity of the Grey Album as well as his work with Gorillaz, Broken Bells, Zero 7, etc. I knew this was something I had to check out and you know what? LBT is by far the best album made in any genre IMO since The Blueprint. It's that amazing.

I've been making beats for 15 years. I don't just listen to hip hop albums from the 90's. I'm always looking for samples. I think the frustration that older heads like me have is the complete irreverence for those artists that came before this current crop. Not just the younger fans, but the artists as well. It's like if Kyrie Irving came into the NBA and was like "Nobody cares about Isiah Thomas or Gary Payton. Me and John Wall are the realness!" I've got younger friends and relatives that enthusiastically seek out those artists like Gang Starr, DITC, Hiero, Boot Camp, etc from me and I load up an entire ext HD of straight classics. It's like somebody traveled back in time and gave them the greatest collection of music ever.

Every other genre embraces those that came before them. Why doesn't hip hop? I don't want to come in here and just be like "That sucks! Listen to this instead!" Willink and I started the Hip Hop 101 thread to try to share what we grew up with. Other than a small few, the only ppl checking for it are those that are already in the know. So I guess that's fine. But one thing I know for sure is that ppl have been dissing mainstream hip hop for over 25 years and rightfully so. For every Lauryn Hill, you have a 2Chainz. It is what it is.

To help celebrate the 20th anniversary of No Need For Alarm, we caught up with Del during the West coast leg of his current tour supporting Deltron 3030’s Event II to discuss the creation of the album in-depth. And Del turned the clock back two decades to talk about the shift in sound between his first and second LPs, the months he spent living in New York and hanging with Q-Tip, the Beastie Boys, Kurious Jorge, and Dante Ross, collaborating with his Hiero homies, and much more, including a track-by-track breakdown of the entire album, his involvement in the cover art design, and an apology to a now well-known music journalist who he dissed hard on one of the album’s final cuts. This is The Making of No Need For Alarm with Del the Funky Homosapien.


http://nahright.com/news/the-making-of-no-need-for-alarm-with-del-the-funky-homosapien/

Fascinating read! I love all the behind the scenes information about the process of making this gem.

Crazy it's been 20 years since it came out (makes me feel old LoL). I remember buying No Need For Alarm the day it came out at a Best Buy in Milwaukee. I think I bought Midnight Marauders the same day actually. No Need For Alarm is a top 5 West Coast album of all time IMO and at the time of its release, there were few MC's in the world on Del's level.

The Black Album was something larger than music; it was a cultural event... And yet, it was all coming to an end; leading up to its release in 2003, The Black Album was billed as Jay Z’s final album, with the implication that the rapper would go on to focus on the other entrepreneurial endeavors that were beginning to define his output just as much as music had. That never happened, but it was a very real sentiment at the time... By speaking with a number of core contributors to The Black Album, we tried to capture the unwavering spirit of an icon determined to make his mark on history.

Good stuff.

93 Culture is my ode to the golden era of boom bap hip-hop. To keep it authenticate as possible I created this album using only the techniques and tools typically used in the early 90s. DJ Chorizo Funk mixed the instrumentals in that classic mixtape format and Dinco D of the Leaders of The New School came through on the hosting tip to keep the vibe going.

Equipment used:
ASR-10
MPC 60II
Akai S-950
Mixed in ProTools, bounced to casette, then digitized again

Good look on all those links. I'll be listening to those thru the holidays. I have so many cassette mixtapes of Stretch & Bob, J-Love, J-ROCC, you name it. I'd love to transfer them to mp3 someday but it's going to be so time consuming.
