My manStill need to hear Whack World in its entirety but as for right now.
I'm debating what I'd put last.
- Orpheus vs. Sirens
- Supreme Blientele
- Streams of Though Vol. 1 and 2
I really liked Drogas Wave but haven't relistened to it due to the length and wanting to only hear it as a whole rather than in pieces. Still need to relisten to No News is Good News too as I didn't really absorb it the first time through. Black Eyed Peas' is an easy and refreshing listen, as is Dicaprio 2, which may be why I like it a lot.
It’s a better than average pop album.
Yeah it’s a bit weird. I am not a fan of the album and I don’t see how it’s a better mainstream release than something like astroworld. It’s getting a lot more acclaim than plenty of other rap releases. Hell its getting put in top 10’s of general lists which is laughable.
I really fuck with Killy and bumped his two projects heavily this year. Surrender Your Soul will definitely be in my Top 10. But I guess I can kinda see why some people would find it annoying - I generally don't have an issue with all these rappers with nasaly or weird voices though e.g. Thug, Nav etc. (except for some of Kendrick's voices when it doesn't fit the track he's featured on). I'm more annoyed by certain types of inflections more than voice tone. Like, I really dislike The Weeknd's style of singing and inflection.
You probably like more technical Rap with fast rapping and more lyrical? Maybe you'll like Joyner Lucas who's technical like Em, Tech 9ine, but on more modern beats:Can anyone recommend some more....upbeat/energetic albums? I've skimmed through a bunch of the thread and listened to a lot of the more common names such as Drake and Kendrick Lamar etc but it's not quite what I am after. It may be that I tend to like "Rap" more(tbh I am not sure what really separates Rap & Hip Hop), few examples would be Chino XL, Tech N9ne, Bone Thugz(certain tracks) etc. I can listen to pretty much anything, but lately I have preferred lifting to upbeat hip hop/rap rather than the usual heavy metal.
Any help appreciated.
