Just discovered Jedi Mind Tricks (the band, not the actual tricks.....i've been able to do those for years).

The album- The Thief and The Fallen, is marvellous.

Sounds good, couldn't find it on soulseek (FIRST TIME THIS HAS EVER HAPPENED BARNY!!)

Was just looking at Action Bronson on RYM, he now has over a 100 credits where he appears on other peoples projects.

Was fully expecting to hate this, and he actually blew me away, the Belfast accent doesn't really lend itself to hip-hop but his content, rhymes and intensity is incredible.

Did you ever listen to his album, Johnno?

Nothing new, but I can't stop listening to The Infamous by Mobb Deep at the moment.





It's so fucking good. It's a bit like a Illmatic in style but much bleaker production & raps.

Was googling it the other day and I found out that it's one of Nick McCabe's (from the verve) favorite album too, which for me is an absolutely mega endorsement.  

He said this about it; 

"The production on The Infamous – sonically it's just genius. It's a shame some of the lyrics are so offensive as it detracts from how good the music is."  

It's funny how he can't handle a few murder lyrics but still, when McCabe says something is sonically genius, you gotta listen.

the new young thug album 'no, my name is jeffery' is my favourite album so far this year. it's not traditional in any sense, but its creative and magnificent. it's hook upon hook and somehow is both explicit, absurd and romantic.

he's really great. I haven't listened much to his latest mixtape Coloring Book, but that's for no particular reason, i liked it very much on first couple of listens. In fact, imma play it on my drive back, thanks m8!

Acid Rap is his first mixtape and is excellent. he has a properly unique style and his guest spots on others tracks are always good value. There are some properly exciting things happening in pretty mainstream rap once you drown out the 90s hip hop bores banging on about how everything is shit since wu tang.

Listening to something by Flatbush ZombieS which is sounding pretty nice!

I'll give Chance a spin tomorrow.

Decent effort by the BBC.

As a 90 minute overview I thought this was pretty great. Considering it had to cover the best part of 40 years in an hour and a half- it gave props to & spent time on the right people, wasn't afraid to criticise, had interesting interviewees and touched on important aspects of the culture not often spoken about outside of the culture. And Rodney P is a really good presenter.

Obviously in 90 minutes you can only scratch the surface and a lot of important characters (and there are a LOT of important characters in the history of hip hop) are left out,despite deserving a mention. But the most interesting ommission was Afrika Bambaata, presumably due to the recent allegations.


FFS, it won't let me embed the video
