Props for this, don't have time to read this at the moment but will check it out later. Haven't listened to his new single, is it any good, got any expectations for his new album?

yeah i have heard 7 sogns, so almost half the album; and i pre-ordered it yesterday. it's sounding dope, "Still Here", "New Era", the song with Reks and Termanology and the DJ Premier produced "Spit Six", "Hardbodie" and the amazing GURU (tribute which Shug spoke in length about during Part 1 of this interview) are all terrific shit. the only joint i haven't been too keen on is "Big Fly Homie", so 6 out of 17 so far is looking good, don't you think?

nice, a Shug album with premo would be ill and i would check a soul album from Shug. i dont really know what id expect but itd be interesting. this would be the best time to drop an album like that i think

just received "I.M. 4-Eva" and this shit is a winner for sure... little dissapointed i couldn't get it on wax, but on the other hand the 36 page CD booklet and the dopeness of the LP makes up for it. anyone else bought this yet, or at least heard it and if so what you think?

Need to check it out

"My Boston" and "Play It" is one of my favourite Premo beats so it will be interesting to check the beats on here.

trust me, it's dope.. there's a few joints that so-so but there's enough extreme heat to justify the purchase, especially the booklet, which is CRAZY.

for those that liked this interview, in a few hours you can check out part 1 of my interview with Oxygen AKA Ox The Architect, a super ill Long Island emcee who's part of Soundsci with Audessey from Mass Influence, Spox-PhD with DJ Spinna and formerly the really ill Sputnik Brown crew.

also Lost Tapes is the only site in history to have posted the FULL INI "Center Of Attention" album as it was originally supposed to have been heard if it was released. not even Pete Rock said this existed, guess he didnt count on the few test presses leaking huh.. needless to say it's an amazing musical experience to finally get to hear it
