OC has become one of my favorite artist over the past year or so. I got into him after listening to Jeru heavy for a minute. His rhyme style is confident and mature vs young, ruthless and careless like many from his era. This is my favorite OC track to play in the morning to trigger thoughts. The calming jazz sample is perfect as a backdrop for the excellent verses.
Actions have reactions, don’t be quick to judge
You may not know the hardships people don’t speak of
It’s best to step back, and observe with couth

I’m glad The Game has confidence that he thinks he’s the best from the West, then you hear Kendrick rap his ass off even when the beat has gone off. Damn KDot! Continue reading
Well while sitting around and listening to jams from back in the day I decided to throw on that Com Sense “Resurrection”. One thang lead to another and I was looking for No I.D. productions. I found his discography and I noticed that he produced almost all of Com’s “Resurrection”. As expected “Resurrection” dropped in 94, as a lot of classics did (cough cough Illmatic). Well the reason that I raised this question, is No I.D. the greatest hip hop producer of all time, is because Continue reading
Bleek is a good rapper, not great. Most of his albums are good, not great. You can’t say Continue reading
The first time I heard Black Milk was when I had peeped his song called “The Matrix” of his album Tronic. In all honesty I saw the song online somewhere and I clicked to listen to it because I seen the legendary DJ Premier was on it so I had to take a listen(1st rule of being a hip hop head, you never pass over the chance to listen to a Premo track).
