Quite. Bought and paid for within five minutes of me finding out it existed, rather than me spending 48 hours manically refreshing his Twitter feed and going "Just shut up and take my money!" before switching to "£20 or a Tidal subscription? Lol, fuck off" and pirating my first thing in about four years.

This popped up on my FB yesterday.  I love 90's hip hop and it took me right back to listening to stuff like Naughty by Nature and Lords of the Underground.

I got the Ocean Wisdom LP at the weekend but haven't had time to listen to it properly yet. Tbh I wasn't that keen on the brief flick through i managed to do, as you say, made me feel old, but I think I need to digest it a bit.

Dead Prez were pretty shite last night, turned up 2 hrs late so perhaps slightly coloured by this.

 

Got some tickets as compo to Smif N Wessun next Thurday if anyone is keen and in Manchester? Wrekonize.

Anyone listening to the new J-Zone album?  It has more of a singles-and-instrumentals-thrown-together feel than the much more cohesive last album, but it's chock full of classic J-Zone sick of the rap business curmudgeonly raps and funky instrumentals so no complaints from me.

 

DITC album is sounding nice too:

OC and AG all over it which makes it essential listening as far as I'm concerned.

Oh snap, the bridge wars was never over! These dudes are doing drive-bys on pimped out walkers, damn! :lol:

 

I might be biased, but imo 2016 Shan is punching above his weight. It's good to hear KRS dropping a decent rhyme again though- all it took was some good ol' fashioned 100% homegrown beef - "Technically I didn't take you out Shan, the crack did"

That kid has got talent, reminds me of a young energetic mix of Redman and Lords of the Underground!

Yeah the production is great. I'm finding his voice a bit of an acquired taste at the moment but the constant guest spots are helping while I get used to it.
