Also when I stopped following it almost every rapper was using that same God awful rhyme structure where 100% of the emphasis was on rhyming the last few words of every bar and making sure everybody knew you were doing it. Yuck. Absolutely fucken awful. No individuality at all in hip hop those last few years I was still following it.
Actually there's more originality and diversity in Hip-Hop today more than ever, the problem is that the music itself isn't really good. Guys like Schoolboy Q, Earl, Tyler, Danny Brown are new-age rappers but I don't really enjoy their music that much, it's just way too different from what we used to know.
Kendrick and Freddie Gibbs are closer to the 90s stuff, and both of them are easily the best rappers out right now.
But if you want true 90s Hip-Hop in 2013 then you better listen to foreign Hip-Hop, because a lot of them have do use that 90s Wu-Tang East Coast sound in their songs.
I recognise a lot of tracks on that Jigsaw upload, looks like it's probably a compilation than the actual album then? Especially as it's 2 discs.
Yeah, a lot of tracks are verses from various collabs with Pro the Leader. A lot of the tracks are also on the 2001 Solo Mix that Dr. ChainsawHands uploaded a few months previous to Jigsaw. Those snippets are ace though! I was pissed when "Welcome to Alcatraz" cut off, haha!
