I mean, clearly I don't give a shit about the Grammys, but I still cant help but check the hip hop winners / losers. That Mos album is sooo good, I foolishly thought it might have a chance.

Ah well, had to share that

Relapse was a really good album. Dont see the problem

Good for Em, very good album indeed. I actually just ordered Refill yesterday even though I got the original Relapse on day one. First time I'm buying the same album twice.

Estatic was album of the year in my opinion,

it was easily better then Relapse.

the Grammys love a good story behind the music, not to mention a comeback story.

Also they love the style of production Em had: non grimy & handled by 1 production team.

& i'm not knocking Dre, even though Em was lyrically wack on Relapse, Dre came with some lavish shit.

Slims lyrical content might of perceived as wack on that album, but the rhyme structure was pretty elaborate.

Only thing that I could relate it too was some of Kool G's shit. You gotta try to not focus on that ridiculous accent he used.

relapse it is much better then Mosdefs album... actualy i cant listen to this bullshit, after few tracks it makes me sleepy. last good album from mosdef was from rawkus era, black on both sides and black star with Talib.

and by the way Talib Kweli > Mosdef.

lol what

the rhyme structure was pretty elaborate.

I agree

Any true fan of Hip Hop can tell Em can flow his ass off. After listening to Relapse several times, I could tell that despite the voice, his skill is still there.

But the content is just flat out lame, boring, repetative, lackluster...need I continue

ok 1 more
Listening to Relapse(FOR ME) track by track is like watching every Friday the 13th movie back to back. After the 1st couple films, I feel like I'm slowly allowing my life to waiste away

relapse was M&M's best album since the marshall mathers LP and easily one of the best hip hop albums between 2000 and twenty ten.

And at times completely missing. Word again.

Not surprised by this tbh, even though Relapse was pure ass-sauce.

em sounded like a dr. seuss book on relapse, his flow was embarrassing. The Ecstatic shoulda won for sure.

02-04-2010, 02:24 PM
first off i wanna say, slim, mos & q-tips albums are all dope.

and i aint mad at em or winning, relapse is a solid ass album. the whole concept behind it. relapse means falling back into bad habits. in this case he was bringing up all his old shit (his mom, mariah, christopher reeves) AND talking about his drug problem while making fun of himself and his celebrity. and dres production is the sheeet on it. a couple weak tracks, but def one of the best in em's discog.

and at least common didnt win for that piece of dogshit he put out last year.

the grammys are for and run by rich whites who dont really know shit about music anyway. they are all looking at the business aspect of it.

(flavor flav voice) who gives a fuck about a goddamn grammy!

yeah mos def shouldve won for sure, that album is a solid listen from start to finish, while eminems has many fast forward moments (the song where he raps about gettin raped by his daddy, no thanks), mos def shits all over eminem lyrically and delivery wise (listen to the final verse on History w/ Talib Kweli) and is overall a better talent (em has fallen off HARDCORE save a few guest spots lately)

02-14-2010, 05:56 PM
^ to say that Mos Def shits all over Eminem's delivery is fucking NUTS!!!!!!!!! i'm a big fan of both and i'd say "The Ecstatic" was the better album but i can't think of 3 MC's that can fuck with Em's delivery in 2009/2010.

mos def album was better. mos def is better. necro kills them both
