Default I haven't made a thread in awhile - so this must be important.

... and it is.

I'm talking about - IMO - the best hip-hop album of '09 (which I tried to school you fools awhile back had its own thread and all) Survival Skills. A KRS-ONE & Buckshot with 9th Wonder on the beats.

Heads still didn't listen.



... but yeah ... to all you dead beat dads out there... listen to this. Stop doin' ya thang in them streets. In the clubs. Check-yo-self and get it together. Look in the mirror my e-ga. What's more important, ya kids or shawnta big phat booty + the crew all at Club Fluidz with some no-name DJ Danja-Danja keepin' it live yah yah riiight riiight!



Instead, listen to this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=paZiU_-b_ac

Oh... and here's a good one on there with Mary J.

So with all the bangers out there in '09 what's better than this album? Perhaps I missed something. 2009 was BSBDDS.

I'm in the middle of it. Mostly pretty good with a few real gems. The title track was really good, and the best track so far is one of the best I've heard in a while, 'Connection'. Smiff'n'Wesson are as good as they've ever been and the wonky piano riff is perfect.

Two thumbs

2009 was a pretty weak year, but so far I don't think it's as good an effort as Mos's, Doom's, Rae's, and maybe some others I'm forgetting. It's on par with the Slaughterhouse debut or Jay's album or k-os' if you want to count it.

I can't exactly explain it... but your persona and posting style... reminds me a lot of a young Buckshot in his old Boot Camp Clik days.

Take it for what it's worth.

You know it's weird, people actually tell me that ALL the time! They're always like, hey man, you remember Buckshot from BCC, hit it big in the late 90s, well you give off a super similar vibe to the way I feel when I listen to him!


Though frankly he's on the bottom end of the Bootcamp Clik, behind Sean P and the S&W boys.

Nah, Buckshot is the backbone. Kid is the realness. I'm going to post another album you should hear (if you haven't already).

I'm partial to Steele and especially Tek. Buck's still top notch though.

Yeah Lojo, great album top to bottom. I haven't heard the debut yet though. I'm still working through Sean P's solo works too.
