lol man i LOVE "Turbulence", i maybe came off as harsh on it but you gotta admit that alot of the shit he says seems random as hell yet it sounds dope the way he delivers it and that beat is absolutely nuts. good tune-up tho and great review for "Radioactive" too man.. i noticed i have still "Swinging Swords" and "Pleasure or Pain" (i'll try to go lighter on U-G there haha) in that section
i just took at least an hour to write six reviews lol, they're all pretty damn long tho. you can check them over, if you find anything that's not neccesarily need to be in there or pointless to mention or whatever you could try to edit them down a bit. if you like them as they are now you can keep it that way too, fine with me either way.
the reviews i did was "Turbulence", "Faster Blade"/"Wisdom Body", "260", "Jah World" and "All in Together Now". i might try to do more later cuz i really want to finish that section, there's only a few left now. btw, do you want to write "Radioactive"? i never really cared for that song altho i know alot of peeps think it's great... supposedly that was a joint RZA produced for Masta Killa's original 'No Said Date' around 1999 i heard (which also had that original 'Secret Rivals' song) so you could always mention that.
the list you put together looks fine on first inspection, i'll take a closer look in a bit but i don't think we're gonna have much beef over it. i'll try to step up my writing game too, i've been lazy as fuck when it comes to our project but we'll get back on track for sure. here's the new Pharoahe Monch, incredible album. let me know if it's not working for you
from the songs you wanted me to pick one from i got some thoughts. "What The Blood" will probably be my pick plus we can use an interesting angle with it has been a long-standing rumour that actually Y-Kim produced it but Def Jam didn't want no unknown there. you can hear RZA shout out "WHAT UP Y-KIM?!!" too.
then there's "G-Dini", with two awesome versions, one where Ghost absolutely killed the "Bastards" beat by Blaquesmiths and then the US/EU remix by The RZA that's amazing too. so it's either between those two songs, "What the..." is prolly my fave on that album, totally embodies how hardcore Wu was back then but at the same time "G-Dini" is worthy of the list too. what do you think about these two?
hey homie, sorry about the late answer to your post, i haven't been logged on for a few days since my brother has been down here plus we've been totally wasted the entire time. i like "Symphony '00", great posse cut, both Red n Meth has classic verses, it was important as it was a comeback LP for EPMD + this was a stand-out track.
another similiar one is the rmx of "Simon Says" by Pharoahe Monch, it has the exact same beat and hook as the OG and EVERYBODY loves that song. i saw Monch live at a festival where at least half there wasn't very familiar with his shit but that song made the entire crowd goes nuts. and it always gets the same effect at house parties too. the mix has Method Man, Redman, Shabaam Sadheeq and Lady Luck. take a listen to that if you haven't heard it and let me know how you feel about it.
aight props man and good looking on the check for sophomore, i'll keep that in mind. btw have you got a chance to listen to the "SvWT" bonus cuts yet? that Havoc track should've really made the album if you ask me, that beat suited Rae perfectly!! "Wu Crime" didn't do much for me as far as production goes but lyrically it sounded solid on first listen.
great review fam!! i really enjoyed reading that one, dropped a few comments in the thread. i just finished six reviews, "Must Be Bobby", "Put Your Hammer Down", "Grid Iron Rap", "Sickness", "Hip-Hop Fury" and "Deadly Melody" and added a few notes on your "Shakey Dog"/"Lolita" review that i thought was appropiate. whatchu think`?
