I don't think I can really disagree with what Crooked I is saying here. I keep seeing these audio excerpts that were from the interview process that went into writing this MC book and I'm thinking that I'm gonna have to check it out. It'll be interesting to read about the different kind of techniques that different MCs use to construct their verses.

Feelin' this. I was a little skeptical before hearing this considering The Roots' last album just came out. Judging by this track, it definitely doesn't look like a rush job which is nice considering the tracks with John Legend on How I Got Over were probably the dopest on the album. John Legend and The Roots Wake Up hits stores September 21st.
|Here's a recent press release from Guerilla Funk Recordings. New Paris? New T-K.A.S.H.?? New George Clinton produced by Paris???? Dwaamn.|

I don't know if I've been sleepin on this or what, but this shit is straight fyah. Produced by Masterkraftsmen, Gold Chain Military is Planet Asia's crew out of Fresno. If this track is indicative of what the rest of the album sounds like, I'm definitely gonna have to peep it.
GCM is: Planet Asia, Tristate, Killer Ben, Killa Kali and Sav Killz
For those that are a little unfamiliar with this whole thing, you should probably watch Pheonix's appearance on Letterman from about a year or so ago. Basically it looks like we're getting the hip-hop version of Borat. I'm down, the dude seems like he was definitely dedicated to his character. Are you not entertained?

In addition to art, there'll be hip-hop and soul DJs, $2 pizza slices, a live graffiti canvas hosted by Jake Spruce, a piñata filled with small liquor bottles, an art raffle, birthday cake and the release of the sixth issue of Muster, the WFAL's literary zine. "As much as we're really trying to step up our caliber and amount of artwork," Gould says, "we're also trying to make it an event. I'm really into the idea of the old-time variety show."

I've been listening to this album for the last couple of days and it's pretty illy. I'm not sure if it's quite 5 mics illy, but time will tell. The true classics are the albums you listen to 10 years after they came out and it still gives you that feeling. For example, UGK Riding Dirty, still as dope today as the day it came out, maybe even doper.
"For every album labeled a classic, there are dozens of others that people feel deserve the honor. So I realize that people now feel they have to place my album next to others that they feel were more impactful, and argue their case. With social networking being as prevalent as it is in our society, these arguments now take place in a very public arena, which in order to be heard, you often have to be very opinionated and abrasive to stand out. So people, while having no personal hate or malice towards me, will make very loud arguments about The Source’s decision, and the loudest ones will probably get the most attention."
