    He was killed in briarwood, not Jamaica.
    Whoever killed him knew exactly what they were doing. You can tell by where he was shot and the bullet grouping.

    Parts of Jamaica besides south side are rough. I call it working class but anybody from another state might be like what if they walked around certain parts. I'm from around parsons blvd where you catch the f train fwiw. I brought a friend out there who was from another state and she was scared as hell for whatever reason. I mean ok niggas started acting crazy at McDonald's but it wasn't that serious.

    Anyone see that jayz tidal freestyle on wshh? Couple nice little jabs in there at the industry, the hypocritical people out there shitting on tidal, and police abuse.

    KIller mike on bill maher 9:30 he gets into it.

    I like the breakdown of the violent culture. Like ya, okay hip hop creates violence is what they say, well lets start with religion first buddy, and then work our way down, because you will find hip hop to be at the very bottom of that long list of what helps invoke violence in human beings. Religion, poverty, lack of education, greed, etc..

    Been a while since I shared some music, so I'll do a review.

    ChocQuibTown-el-mismo-flowactivo-400x400.jpg
    Colombian hip-hop group ChocQuibTown dropped their latest album today titled El Mismo (The Same in English) and I have to say that it's superb. El Mismo is the group's fourth non-remix album and it brings the flavor and energy that the group is recognized for. The titled track is set to an upbeat instrumental and the trio does a decent job when it comes to flows and energy. It's serviceable and gives you an understanding of their style, but the proceeding tracks after the original version of "Cuando Te Veo" are the exceptional pieces of this project. The album has a varied range in terms of tone and sound. You have tracks like "El Mismo" and "Una Raza Llamada Sabor" that are the more upbeat salsa type songs while you also have the serene tracks like "Cuando Te Veo" and "Nuqui". "Salsa & Choque ft. Ñejo" is my personal favorite of the dance tracks.


    I have to also give recognition to the production on Mismo. Slow Miguel did a superb job on producing this. The guitars and xylophones present within are among my favorite instruments. The saxaphone on "Nuqui" in particular is a nice touch to add to the placid feeling the song evokes.


    On the level of rapping, I feel that it is done rather well. Carlos is the flow master of the group, Gloria's rhymes are a nice compliment to her vocals, and Miguel's energy cannot be beat. My commentary on the lyrics is strictly limited as the crew microphone commands in Spanish. I think I know a considerable bit of Spanish, but am not versed enough to keep up with it in something as fast as rap. If I could find the lyrics online, I'd analyze them then. From the titles of the songs I can get a feel of what the song is probably about.


    This album also features four renditions of their leading single "Cuando Te Veo". All of them are pretty good and apply a different genre to each version. A couple of the mixes actually sound better than the original. The Salsa rendition is the best of the bunch. To sum up this album it is a fantastic entry to the group's discography and probably their best to date. This album is recommended highly


    8.5/10

    Oh damn, dem flashbacks of getting john blazed and riding to the twilight zone in baltimore bumping this shit. Man, i remember when fridays use to be epic in life when you were younger. I dont have a cane yet, so i could bring it back, but man, when you 19 fresh with the whip, getting off work at 330 from a good paying job. Start dialing up you homies and ladies to see whats good, and get your big homey to cop you some booze. Even the whacker years in hindsight were still fairly fun, and the post whack years were just out of control. Lemme stop telling my life stories. lol

    Been bumpin a ton of Wu Tang lately. I always seem to go back to stuff I am used to.


    Anyways this bangs.






    Are there any rap battles where they actually rap over a beat or is it just the spoken word battles? I've been looking up rap battles, but all I find is this spoken word stuff.

    Eh, ive listened to ghost all my life, and he is one of my favorite rappers, and after listening to action bronson for a couple years now, i can spot an action record from a ghost record no problem. Listening to ghost's new album, which is FLAAAAAAAAMES, i never once felt like i was listening to action bronson, and getting confused.

    Sometimes with the og rap niggas, i be like, why you still rapping. Let the youngins be free to express themselves without having an og artist compare them to whoever. Its free money, but you too old to be worried about what someone half your age is doing and sound like. Not that ghost aint say he was cool, its just like, stop.

    Its like, my nigga, stop. There are probably 20,000 niggas in new york who sound like ghost right now in general, and if they tried to spit, would sound like him.

    Regardless of the amateur ears that have people saying he sound like ghost, those two dont even spit similar bars or content really.

    Rone interviews Lux lol. Rone still the GOAT comedic and charismatic battle rapper also think Lux accidentally mentioned Daylyt when answering who's a threat lol. Daylyt vs Lux been brewing for a while, and could happen at URL this year and will probably be one of the best battles ever.
