Now playing some Hip-Hop

I thought it was good… but on the Joe Budden podcast, they broke down Jay’s verse on this. I’m a bit late but I’m now jumping on the bandwagon that this is verse of the year, not just ‘good’ :grin:

I have to make a guilty confession… I’m not really as much of a lyrical Hip-Hop fan as I am a music production fan - the beats and maybe the flow of the rapping. I don’t usually pay too much attention to lyrics and I’m focusing more on the music behind the vocals.

But when everyone starts talking about specific lines and verses, I then go and pull up the lyrics to see what all the fuss is about and that’s when I get hyped and jump on bandwagons :smile:

Love the production on the title track. Who doesn’t love a bit of sax :grin:

Samples “I Found the Girl” by Toney Fountaine.



I love lyricism but I do follow producers too. I seem to especially enjoy albums where a single producer takes the helm for deep collaboration.

Great to see the legendary Scott Storch back in good health.

The story of Dr. Dre’s ‘Still Dre’, written by… Jay-Z.

(Sean) #109

Featuring the classic samples of Michael McDonald’s "I Keep Forgettin’ and Bob James’ “Sign of the Times”.





The apex of Neptunes-era production.

Oh yes. Classic.

Most people don’t know how far back Pharrell and Chad go… starting as teenagers working under Teddy Riley in the very early 90’s… and Pharrell’s influence/genius isn’t slowing down at all.

He really is an ageless vampire :grin:

Love this production by John Cunningham. Simple but still very melodic.

The Drake effect - blurring the lines between rapping and swinging.

Rick Ross on a Justice League production is always something special.


(Sean) #117

The original in Justice League’s Maybach Music collection. Their trademark cinematic production.

Off the new album.

The boss’s playlist - his picks for best of 2018 :grin:

Some cool picks by the 49 year old.
