Plus the Lesson is relatively dead these days in general.


I'm hyped to cop this album, and I'm sure its great. I know I'm not alone.


Not everything is a fight, man. You can post agenda free. Its okay. In fact, I encourage you to do so at least once in a while.


You lose credibility when 99% of the time you are just trying to troll people.

Not to mention, do you have any specific thoughts? Why don't you post your thoughts- spend your energy on that.

spending so much energy (50.000+ posts!?) on a board that sucks so much?

....yet none of it made me go "why use this?"

Black Sambo might be my favorite record Sky has made, at least top 5.

Even the girl song sounds better this time out.

Only misstep is Raheem sounds like a bootleg Anderson.Paak on Baker's Dozen. Not to diss Raheem, but I just couldn't rock with it.

There really isn’t anything bad to say about this album. Not a bad song on the entire thing. I really liked the spoken word portions as well.

Not sure why I picked Kiss but they strike me as similar MCs whereas they sound exactly the same on every song and don’t deviate much at all.

unless you want to include Jadakiss' mixtapes, most of which were mixed and mastered at a time when that was less vital to a mixtape than just getting the bars out there.

Jadakiss' whole discography is "did you even listen to that beat before you wrote to it?" personified. I really wish he'd have wound up on a team that gave a damn about production or timelessness.

Not saying he’s a better rapper than Jada. But his albums generally have better production and no bad songs. Jada is a great rapper, but his albums always have a few flat out stinkers.

I've never had a Skyzoo album that felt slapped together or weak.

Granted, I've never been a big Lox/Jada fan so I may have missed an album or mixtape over the years, but all them Lox/D-Block projects would have a couple of tracks I liked enough for a playlist but the albums themselves had a lot of tracks I'd skip.

In response to Reply # 24


  

          

Sky took that scene in Menance and explained the environment that allowed that scene to happen.

There was an undercurrent of people looking down on black folk in that community. They have their preconceived notions about them. They think they ain't shit, etc. Then...

I feel sorry for your mother. And shit goes left.

And instead of O-Dog destroying the tape, he passes it around with his peers and his fame grows.

O-Dog needs to be accepted by his friends so he sells the tape around the hood. And O-Dog needs to be accepted/respected by those store owners so he enforces it.

Some quotes from the song that I think support this:

It's like knowing where the cameras in the walls are,
And they were already talking for you before the talk starts,
(preconceived notions. Here's what they think about you)

And your direction comes into question like it was On Star,
It's either turn it on for the tape or turn into wall art,
(The hood, what they think about you, and all of the odds against you, you either the hunter or the prey)

Now there's a motive on top of that tape rolling
On top of that other motive that same tape ain't notice
(the other motive being acceptance)

t's all context, but get all that acclaim and you'll get to love it,
It starts as a flash, it grows into fluorescence,
It goes into an essence that poses when you press it, like the tape do,
It dares you to mimic it like "son what your aim do?”,
And however you fit in that light is how it takes you,
Like, word to a shooter's touch, steady as ever like you shooting up,
Brighter than ever, you ain't losing much,
And validation is everything that you knew it was,
You finger prints on a bottle but that ain't proving much,
For the importance of needing importance,
Until its loud enough where somebody's seeing you for it,
And calling for everything you did it for, as dull as what you living for,
Promised it would never turn dim at all

This is all O-Dog showing the tape around the hood. Validation tying everything together.


I'm gonna go out on a limb and say it's Lupe, 3k and Skyzoo as far as poetry goes

Peddler's Theme was the first album of his that didn't blow me away, but I don't think this one will disappoint, from what I've heard so far.
