YOOOOOOOO, WORLDS COLLIDING AND SH*T. GOD DAMN.



damn. he went with the "jamboree" foundation. that is a bold choice. love this man.

on african giant he did the same with black ryno's "test di link/ay ya" for "destiny."

treach is arguably the most underrated MC of all time. vinny was perfect on this. :lol: love it.

You suspect it when the song starts, but then he drops the "say god damn" and suddenly it's blatant in your face. :lol:

And totally agree about Treach, I've held and argued that view over the years. His flow and complexity was so, SO ahead of his time, but for some reason he never got his flowers for it. He got recognized for his aesthetics (being brolic, the chains, gear) and personality so much more than his actual lyrical ability.

Damn after 3 days in rotation Nas might have another classic on his hands. The 2 songs I was not really feeling are growing on me. Every listen I catch another line I missed.

I was going to list my favorite songs but that changes on every listen. When I look at the reviews everyone has a different favorite. Even the bonus song that I thought I would hate could be a big single for him, that and "All Bad". AZ and Ferg had the best features on there rapping.

"27 Summers" and "Spicy" need a remix

I bought the album. If you haven't heard it yet listen to it here. Hope you all support this one too it is great.

Listen to it hear:

I'm trying to find more artists/albums/songs that sound and vibe like Koffee.

I have four elementary school kids, so I don't want it to ever get too hard, and profanity is a no, though if the patois is thick enough and the average white person can't understand it, I don't give a sh*t. :lol: I've been playing a lot of afrobeats, and love it as a similar type of upbeat vibe, but the dancehall sound that Koffee works fits perfectly for having on around the house with the family.

I'm also willing to curate albums that have some songs that would work and others that I'd take out - I don't need the whole album recommendation to be 100% perfect. I'm just looking to be introduced to more sh*t that sounds like what she brings to the table. Thanks!

Here’s some more


also, i'm assuming you've already heard "drogba" by afro b. not sure how old your kids are, but they'll probably love it.


Man, since I watched this today my blood pressure is the lowest it's been years and I somehow have no desire to punch anyone. This performance - especially "Like" - is like a drug that leaves you happy and calm.

Maaaan, Busta just doesn't stop. This man is like an entire subgenre by himself. What a monster/icon/legend who's still rolling out f*cking HEAT. Still doing top notch visuals in videos, too, with that Spy VS Spy theme in the Paak video. His career has aged as well or better than almost anyone, this is one of the greatest all-around artists of the last quarter century.
