Blaq Poet – Ain’t Nuttin Changed
from The Best That Never Did It (Year Round, Coming Soon)
Blaq Poet is an ageless headbuster. I mostly posted this to balance out the next selection.

Drake f/ Bun B & Lil Wayne – “Uptown

from So Far Gone (Mixtape, 2008)
So Far Gone may be the first decidedly post-808s & Heartbreak mixtape, in fact roughly the first third of the tape sounds like producer 40 was told to “make something that sounds like ‘Say You Will’.” Drake later raps over the “Say You Will” instrumental. (Then there is a remake of June 27th freestyle on here, which just seems disingenuous, if not completely out of place.) But beat selection aside, my man is just not a very good rapper. Dude is like Wayne if you stripped him of all his charisma and style and just left the awkward punchlines. And it’s odd that, in the era of Officer Ricky, his credibility has remained unchecked. Far be it from me to suggest that someone can’t rap well (or rap/sing, as there is surprisingly little rapping going on here) simply because they are a soft handed Canadian television star, but when they actually can’t rap well and are also these things it should raise a few questions. This is the most tolerable track on the tape.

TD f/ Peedi Crakk – “Goin’ Off ’09

from DJ E Stacks – Welcome To Trilladelphia 3 (Mixtape, 2008)
Philadelphia getting back to what it does best – jacking old school breaks. Ike Turna (great name!) just loops up Biz’s little oscillating voice box effect for three minutes straight while TD and Peedi snack like Scooby Doo. (||?)

Droop-E – “May I Transform”

from Hungry & Humble (Sick Wid It, Coming Soon)
More departures. It seems like just yesterday that young Droop-E was slapping young ladies with wads of cash, now he’s matured into one of those guys who raps indiscriminately about girls and religion over acoustic guitar beats. Basically, he made an Atmosphere record. (Only have a myspace link on this at the moment.)

    wow i really hope all of Droop-E’s album isn’t like that. you heard the new one with 40 and Cousin Fik? I was actually excited for Droop-E (no B-Slim?) after hearing it, but now i’m not so sure.


  2. julio manchvegas Says:

    that’s one of the more exciting premier beats ive heard in awhile…

  3. Safari Says:

    I’m surprised that “Well Isn’t this awkward” by C. Hamilton wasn’t mentioned. I do think the Drake sounds very 808s..

  4. PURPLE HULK Says:

    He remade June 27th? That faggot piece of crap. I wanna see soneone beat the shit out of him, I hope I never see that piece of scum.

    You’re right about the canadian tv star crap, thats why I’ve never even heard a track from this guy. I hated that show, and he was the gayest character on there.

  5. TSF Says:

    “I’m surprised that “Well Isn’t this awkward” by C. Hamilton wasn’t mentioned.” LOL and good point! Man, ’09 ain’t off to a good start. Anyone heard that Jay Rock tape? The song with Wayne is actually pretty good, and the rest of the tape ain’t bad.

  6. Tray Says:

    I don’t know how I feel about Premo sampling Akon. It’s like, on the one hand, way to kinda put his garbage ass to good use, and it’s nice to see Premo turning to more unconventional sources for his boring scratched hooks, but on the other hand, it’s still Akon.

  7. matt Says:

    man turf talk would demolish that beat…droop needs to stick to producing

    tray — who cares dog

  9. barns Says:

    i imagine a lot of folk rolling in their grave over that june 27th.

  10. Sonya Says:

    Ok let’s go in order:

    Blaq Poet track – Solid

    Drake feat. Bun and Wayne – I thought Drake was a singer

    TD feat. Peedi – They did the beat justice

    Droop-E – The beat is cool

  11. R Says:

  12. noz Says:

  13. TooShaney Says:

    Fuck that guy. Nobody can evolve from this…


  14. andre blunt Says:

    shit slaps.

    Beef Exist amongst Rockwell Noel, and Marley Marl (both Queens bridge Natives). In one form or another. Fact.
    I’ll call it Hip-Hop Voodoo or a Recognize thing.
    In My research of The Bridge Wars and the Juice crew I find absence any response to KRS-1 From Juice crew Members Biz Markie, Big Daddy Kane, Dj Polo and Kool G Rap! Why? That is what crew is supposed to do, Righttt! Represent!!!!! Were they Juice crew or not! Were they Victims of some sort of botched shady Marley Marl Deals and decided to opt out of any Marley Marl Representations… Another story!
    I did fine present a Major Representation From Hip Hop Producer, director and Juice Crew Member ROCKWELL NOEL

    What I Also Found Is a Lack of Representation, Betrayal, Plagiarism by Marley Marl toward Rockwell Noel who went above and beyond when he fully represented Marley Marl, & Queens Bridge During the bridge wars. Bombing Krs-1 and Bdp with Records Beat U Down and Taking U Out, which brutally smashes Krs-1 to battle.

    I duly note that KRS-1 and Marley marl have since ended their feud and ironically the end of their so-called feud was spawned by Rockwell Noel’s announcement and promotion of taking U OUT.

    The two have a grim fear of what really lurks around this release, KRs-1 because he was force to answer Taking U OUT with I/m Still Number one and Marley Marl because of its impact on KRS-1 despite him minimizing play when Marley Marl Was A Dj For Mr. Magic On The WBLS RAP ATTACK Show, what is a mind-boggler is that these two records support Marley with honor against a bunch of bullshit ass rappers an Marley marl never reciprocated that honor back toward Rockwell Noel. Marley Marl never offer Rockwell Noel a deal at that time he was he C E o of Cold Chillin records and had the power to do so, in-fact Marley marl became so threaten because of the over whelming response of TAKING YOU OUT in which he begged Rockwell Noel To produce that he began to accuse Rockwell Noel of trying to make money from his name. That is some crack head shit. Rockwell Noel Swagger totally Threaten Marley Marl for unknown reasons. It has been discovered that because of Rockwell Noel’s powerful impact against KRS-1 that would reveal to the planet that Rockwell Noel as a far superior force than any other of Marley Marls friends or other Juice Crew Members and a direct threat to Marley Marl’s in some form or another. I don’t know! Very dysfunctional, Marley Marl and Aaron Fuchs Tuff City Records is facing a severe law suit by Rockwell Noel for scheming and plagiarizing his work including A LINGERING CRIMINAL COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT ISSUE as Rockwell Noel Discovers unauthorized releases of TAKING U OUT and non Payment for Beat U Down and the wop sensation remix…

    BEAT U DOWN AND TAKING U OUT, BEAT U DOWN AND TAKING U OUT currently available ON Bmx/ Bangin Joints Records as an MP3 On Sale Now At Itunes, Rhapsody, Napster, and Amazon MP3 and on 12 inch Vinyl.

    I’m sorry…I completely disagree with you about the your Drake Critique. I was shocked all through out the tape. Just his shit is on point and his craft is going to be on point.

  17. Blah Says:

    Drake is overrated. He’s nothing special at all. He’s got a really lazy and phoned in flow; no mic skills whatsoever.

  18. Dizzy D Says:

    DRAKE is on TOTAL CLUB HITS 3 with I’m Still Fly. IN STORES NOW!
