"What's The Lesson's take on the Black Hippy crew?"


  

          

Ab-Soul
Jay Rock
Kendrick Lamar
Schoolboy Q

Obvious Kendrick is already a rap superstar. And everyone who hears Ab-Soul is blown away. Schoolboy Q is a little more hood & experimental at the same time. I still gotta hear more of what Jay Rock does.

Who do you think is the best? Do you think they have the potential to be rap's next great collective? Are you anticipating the point at which they link up and release a group album? So far, how do you rank them against other *current* rap collectives (e.g., Slaughterhouse, Odd Future)?

Ab-Soul is my fav but I dig the whole crew. Anything they release, I'm getting it. They're doing rap the right way. I don't think the other members of the crew will have anywhere near the success Kendrick has had though.

Digged all the piano-heavy, west coast tracks. I'd love to hear them do some more work with a heavier classic west coast sound. Regardless, I love the entire crew and as said above, I'll check out anything they drop.

Kendrick is my favorite. Soul & Q are neck-and-neck. Jay is my least favorite, but he's still good IMO. Great crew.

>Who do you think is the best?

I personally like Kendrick the most so far

>Do you think they have the potential to be rap's next great collective?

"Great" is very subjective but I think they will have a nice run.

>Are you anticipating the point at which they link up and release a
>group album?

No.

>So far, how do you rank them against other *current* rap collectives (e.g., Slaughterhouse, Odd Future)?

I think they definitely hold their own against the the collectives you mentioned. There is room for everybody.

kendrick is clearly killing it, and he may even be bettered by ab-soul skill-wise. schoolboy q's done a lot of cool stuff. not as much up on jay rock, to be honest, but i like what i've heard.

they pack quite the punch. i'd certainly be up for a group album.

I will be upset. I've been anticipating this since seeing/hearing video for "Zip That, Chop That." I had previously heard of and heard some music by K. Dot and JayRock.. But it didn't really all come together for me like, "Oh, I gotta check for everything these cats put out" until that video.

Not sure why it hasn't happened yet. Why even call themselves "Black Hippy" in the first place? Just call them TDE, and be done with it.

I'm actually more of a fan of them together than individually. That's the whole appeal of a rap "group".. Group releases with dynamic interaction and a variety of voices/flows/styles.

So yeah.. I'm a fan. Not sure I'm loving the direction of Q's new album, though.. Haven't been too hyped on any of the singles so far. I'm kinda hoping their next round of releases will have less of the trap beats and double-time flows.. though they are good at this, it's not what hooked me in the beginning.

But yeah, the writer for GQ fucked up... Really disrespected Top Dawg and his label more than anything else... Calling the label a "baby Death Row" and basically calling Top Dawg baby Suge was very disrespectful... Other than that, it was a pretty good article...
