    fuck it, I just hate this generation. that's it
    Im not saying that's a bad thing. I'm just pointing out consumption habits have changed, and you can legally purchase something + download it.

    This isn't the early 2000's anymore when revenue from digital goods was non existent.

    "assumed Adrian was doing the whole thing"

    Me too but Bob Perry & Andrew Kelley will have some input in this LP. "Rise of GFK" was produced by Adrian Younge, Bob Perry & Andrew Kelley and has certain Chamber Music elements in that track.

    I don't like buying digital music. I prefer CD or wax only and I really don't give a fuck what y'all think about it. I just don't wanna buy digital-music 'cus it ain't make you owner. And y'all right saying that we should support Wu and buy their albums, but I live in Poland and sometimes it's very expensive to buy a few albums from USA...

    I wish Killah Priest, U-God and others less well-known rappers (I mean mainstram) should have better promotion and distribution 'cus I've been trying to buy "Dopium" for years and I've never seen it in my country....

    I don't live In USA, but I think it's easy to buy albums there 'cus most of rappers I listen to live there

    also i can't trust somebody else to encode the files for me. overall compression, narrowing the stereo image to make it a few kb smaller, etc.

    people think they're getting 320kbps on a torrent, meanwhile it's sourced from a shitty itunes version. no thanks.

    yall sound like old and bitter young people

    i believe that Wu will release some shit that's gonna give nigahs charlie horses on they foreheads real soon. them nigahs ain't stupid.

    i have faith that they know what they doing

    they may have to update the way they release and distribute the art though - we livin in some very different times

    i'm an old head - i used to mix on belt drives - but mp3s/wavs is the shit - i love this iLL ass digital age.

    You do realize there is literally no difference?

    The audio data is stored magnetically on your beloved, flimsy, piece of shit CD and its also stored magnetically on a hard drive when downloaded.

    I really don't see the appeal of chinese made plastic jewel cases.

    Are you guys autistic? Do you need to grip and squeeze a physical item in order to enjoy the music?

    Vinyl is the only thing worth collecting if you are infatuated with album art.

    That's why I buy things on wax. I won't buy PWOWR until it comes out on vinyl.

    I enjoy playing it on a turntable, just putting the needle on there and wait until the record is finished. The sound is also very warm. I don't like CD's though.

    It's kind of funny seeing people here getting sentimental about CD's - in terms of what the product is and the audio qaulity. The audio on CD's is of a limited frequency - you can get digital files that are almost the same quality (frequency range) as vinyl - so i don't really know what the fuck you people are talking about.

    I only buy vinyl and digital now, i own over 400 hip hop album on CD, all of which i bought prior to 2006 and they are a massive fucking waste of space.

    To me Wax > CD and. I love to listen Wu on wax. It sounds kinda ill and if ya ain't hear it on wax you can't compare it

    But I buy CD too. I just don't buy music in digital (I did it a few times only cus I had to)
