    Common's album is gonna get so commercialized it's gonna lose it's value.

    I remember listening to it early this year off my friend's bootleg. Now I see MTV and VH1 play Go and I realize how much those channels can ruin good music.

    They should stick to making reality shows... I can accept those.

    Right, because in this day in age with so much BS on tv a good album getting airplay is a bad thing

    I'd say Big but I'm bias... but he can't come close to Tupac's songs... the guys' been dead 10 years and put out more albums than the living.

    my friend who's like one of Nas' biggest fans.. who won't shut up about him.. even he thought the double CD was bland. But that's nothing new.... what rapper who has put out a double CD that's solid top to bottom? Life After Death.... there were a handful of songs that shouldn't have been on the album.. making it a single CD. Same thing with Wu Tang Forever.... that could easily have been a single CD and been wayy better. Jay's Blueprint 2... horrible.

    And for Cris who thinks I hate Nasir..... on my b'day I ordered Verbal Intercourse off of Rae's Cuban Links album... cause I think Nas' verse is probably the single best rap verse I've ever heard. And I have no problems saying it. I've been saying it since 95 when I first bought the damn thing.

    Although I haven't bought the last Nas CD, I've heard songs off of the album & I was impressed. I guess that album is for people who "like hip-hop". Although Nas isn't the MOST intellectual rapper that's out now, he does give you something to think about; That's all I ask of a CD.

    I like a lot of dance music although I wouldn't say I am a huge afficionado of Hip-Hop. My dance tastes lean more toward the techno end. I am a pretty huge fan of Black-Eyed Peas, but they tend to gravitate toward more mainstream, and incorporate what I would say is a bit more funk which to me is different than Hip-Hop.

    Oh HELL no.

    Hieroglyphics is coming to perform for free at my local Borders. My parents are taking me to Chicago the day before, and I'm coming back the day after the performance, which is the 23rd. Del, Casual, and all are going to be there. I'm one pissed off mother****er.

    Seriously how is Common's getting play bad?

    oh wait, your a CGBG kinda guy...what was that you said to me? " I heard Hip Hop since 97 'cris".......

    and Nasir album has outsold everything Jay been dropping Def Jam (Bleek, Young Gunz, Teirra Mari)

    only album that won't flop is Kanye's..........and that's cause Nas is on it :)

    Although I think the Damien Marley Nas did was hotter

    Holla Sonic :) I'm in a good mood today :)

    Nas' double cd is garbage. I remember when it came out last year or so and people were like, "Oh his album is sick, you best cop that sh1t" and I was like, aight, I'll get it, I put it in my cd player nd it was just garbage, I wasn't impressed at all. Nas needs to go and fix up.

    Not really. I did just buy SCRIBE - THE CRUSADER... quite good. I am very impressed with the stuff coming out of New Zealand.

    Yeah but I say the same thing to everyone, if the album is garbage like everyone says, then apart from Common's album what else was hot that came out since last november? Cam? Game? Snoop? (oh wait Luda, MF DOOM and 9th Wonder dropped some heat :up:

    It's definetly the most divided in terms of what he's put out. It aint universally panned like Nastradamus and it aint loved like Illmatic and Stillmatic.
    Gimme Theif's Theme, Street's Disciple,Nazerth Savage, Sekou's Story, Just a Moment over everything Cam and Game's albums (except the Kanye Tracks cause Down and Out and Dreams was nice)

    But like it's Rae and Ghost said "**** it, it's the god yo" as long as son's putting out music it's a beautiful thing, allow these other MC's bailing out when the rap game's depleted (Em, Andre, Q-Tip, Hov)

    BTW go get that AZ! :up:

    Hip-Hop isn't groundbreaking anymore. . . there's a lot of guys out there who aren't really that talented on the mic, and their fame is frustrating. . .
    but to each his own.
