"de la...first serve...let's talk about it"
Sat Mar-31-12 07:50 PM by Bblock

  

          

it's out
first impressions
the beats ain't bangin' or catchy to me
they've had better production on their previous lps
i don't want to say it sounds dated
because it doesn't sound as fresh as
their shit did back then
it sounds like older people tryin' to do hip hop
is the best way i can describe the music
they shoulda got kanye on the beats...
though it does remind me of the beats a bit from a prince among thieves...

life always offers you a 2nd chance...it's called tomorrow. use it wisely

>they shoulda got kanye on the beats...

LOL I don't think this is as easy as you suggest. Kanye doesn't really make beats for other artists anymore, including on his own label.

I mean I'm not digging it by any means but can appreciate them trying to do something. I heard they're making a real album very soon with Prince Paul so I'm still excited for new stuff from them

NAW THEY'RE TOO DAMN DUMB TO GET OR TOO BUSY TRYING TO HATE BEING ON SOME SNARK SHIT

WHAT THE OP FAIL TO MENTION WHICH WAS PROBABLY DONE ON PURPOSE....IT'S A CONCEPT ALBUM IN THE SENSE POS AND DAVE ARE PLAYING TWO CHARACTERS WHO ARE TOTAL OPPOSITES OF THEMSELVES...THE BEATS ARE DONE BY TWO FRENCH CATS WHO HAD THE IDEAL OF PUTTING THIS TYPE OF ALBUM TOGETHER THEN POS AND DAVE CAME UP WITH THE CHARACTERS SO THAT'S HOW THIS ALBUM CAME ABOUT.

MASEO SAID ON THE REDBULL INTERVIEW THAT THIS ALBUM CAME OUT TO BE FUNNY AS HELL. SO MY GUESS IS THAT ALBUM MIGHT BE A LITTLE BIT TOO INTELLIGENT FOR SOME PEOPLE TO GET IT OR UNDERSTAND THE HUMOR

You slap the nigga(DRAKE) five n he gon moisturize ya palms nahmean!-BIG GHOST NAHMEAN!

I'm on track 3, and I'm surprised by how much I like it so far. The beats & rhymes are pretty fun. It's not something that's gonna pack the dance floor at a party, but for chillin in your apartment, it's pretty cool.

shit don't even sound excitin'
sounds like some shit weed smokers would listen to
oh wait, curren$y already does that
i think weed smokin' was the worst thing to happen to rap music
once rappers really acknowledged and bragged about smokin' weed
the music started to suffer

I think once people understand that, then they will digest it as something else not another De La Soul album.

My impression of these guys was they didn't put shit out unless it was up to par (thus explaining the long absence)

And yeah, you can say that it isn't under the De La name and blah blah, but who you think is gonna be the folks checking for this? De La Soul fans.

THAT DE LA MIGHT HAVE ASSUMED THAT THEIR FANBASE IS A LITTLE BIT MORE INTELLIGENT THAN THE AVERAGE FAN SO DOING AN ALBUM WHERE THEY ARE ALLOWED TO GO INTO CHARACTER LIKE AN ACTOR DOING A MOVIE WOULDN'T BE THAT HARD OF A CONCEPT FOR THEIR FANS TO UNDERSTAND ESPECIALLY SINCE THEY WERE APART OF PRINCE PAUL'S PRINCE AMONG THIEVES ALBUM

I don't care that they did an album under a new name or tried some new shit. Cool, spread your artistic wings. I'll never knock someone for being trying to be creative.

It's that the shit just ain't good, IMO.

it's nothing to be taken too seriously, theyre just having fun. i think the beats are cool, they're spitting, and the hooks are catchy.

good spring/summer album.

35. "That Was The One Song I Disliked On "Grind Date""
In response to Reply # 31


  

          

I was kind of hyped back then to hear they decided to choose a beat from Madlib but when I heard the song, it was a total let down, the songs they had on their "Impossible Mission" which were songs that didn't make their albums were way better than "Shopping Bags".

even Come on Down was some kind of disappointing


Supa Dave West really turned out some of his better work though

34. "It's a throwback"
In response to Reply # 0


          

Maybe the reason you don't like the sound is that this is some throwback shit. The sample on the single is literally an early 80's disco/b-boy tune.

The whole album is hearkening back to what hip-hop was to them when they were up-and-coming. Yeah maybe it's kinda simple break beats and straightforward, but that's the style they intended.

I dunno what to tell you if you can groove to this album. I personally thought it was funky as hell. And there are some great verses in there, too. It's no undun, but it's not trying to be.

I think really what they're saying with this project is: we're just here to make music. Here's something that's a new take on old styles, and a cool idea perfect for Plug 1 and Plug 2 to rap about.

I'm only 5 tracks in but Pos and Dove are holding it down on the lyrics and these beats are NICE (So far at least)

It's great to hear Dave and Pos, but the beats are just decent to me. Kind of sounds like instrumental music you'd find in the score for the fast-moving/transitional scenes in a big blockbuster comedy real clean sounding and BIG, but they lack that soul/grit.

Lyrically, like most hip hop concept albums it starts off very strong, but kind of just ends.

I'm fine with it. It's a side project, and we know that there's another official De La album on the way soon; I just don't imagine that I will listen to this as frequently as their other albums.

Not sure what some people were expecting but I'm loving these funky/disco type beats.

wow i'm shocked y'all really dont like this, i heard this album and was bugging out, i thought it was extremely dope and put together very well. I can see what y'all are saying with the beats but as far as lyrics, storyline, execution, and concept i feel they nailed it all. They went in on this project to me.

It's upbeat for the most part, the skits were pretty good and the last skit before the final performance had a nice twist.

It's a solid effort for sure.

It's not Prince Paul era De La ... but it's wasn't supposed to be.

And for De La I shouldn't even be saying that shit. But being that their sound seemed to be going more RnB I haven't been into anything they released since The Mission Impossible mixtape they dropped.
