Does the Genius gave some new album material dropping anytime soon, or is this an in-between project?

Guns don't kill people - rappers do: Goldie Looking Chains.

I heard it on the radio a few weeks back and now I'm hearing it everywhere.

Check it out. It makes me chuckle.

'sup yall.

This month Im reccomending on a funky, lay your woman down pimp tip.

Saturday I bought

Yesterdays New Quintet-Stevie

A Madlib instrumental reworking of Mr Wonders greatest hits.

Some of the coolest music ever. Even the Girlfriend likes it :D

I also bought

Jedi Mind Tricks- Visions Of Ghandi

Thanks for the heads up yo'

This album is fucking real. Nice Stoupe beats and some ace lyrics.

Madvillain- Madvillainy

'Nuff Said. :D

Here's my first August recommendation:

thumbNail_4352.jpg

Porn Theatre Ushers LP

Its the debut album. I haven't heard it yet but they've never released a bad record so i'd imagine it'll be good.

They'll be more recommendations when I wake up.

Yesterday I managed to get Ghostface's Supreme Clientele for £3.50 second-hand. Why doesn't this album get any hype around here? I reckon Heath's post in the July thread is the first Rllmuk opinion I've read. I seriously love the album. I reckon it's every bit as good as Ironman. Less "Wu" sounding than that, but lush and cinematic nonetheless. 'Saturday Nite' (uses the same sample as Pharoahe Monch's 'The Mayor') is prime night time driving stuff, which is a theme I've been thinking about a lot recently. Music I want to drive around the city to at night:

Saturday Nite - Ghost

Don't Say Nuthin' - The Roots

And that's all I've got so far ;)

for real?

I dont own any of Ghosts solo joints.

I loved Daytona 500.

May have to pick this and Ironman up.

Yeah I slept on Supreme Clientele as well, I think I might have to do some digging.

I'm going through a real Ghostface phase at the moment, his new album is so good, one of my albums of the year so far.

We gave his newest one, The Pretty Toney Album, a lot of love when it came out in April. It was surprisingly great. Really soulful. I'd say Ghostface, and only him, is consistently good on the solo tip. Bulletproof Wallets isn't as good as the others, though. I managed to pick it up brand new for £3 in Fopp a couple of years ago so I can't complain. It had a few nice Alchemist beats and one killer RZA cut (namely 'Maxine').

I still really like Bulletproof Wallets though, its got 3 or 4 duff tracks on it granted but its got 3 or 4 really dope tracks as well.

And the picture on the back has got Raekwon picking his nose while holding the biggest Congac (sp?) glass in the history of the universe ;)

Oh yeah, the photography in the CD inlay is fucking great! You've got Rae cooking soup or something while Ghost stands next to him in a dressing gown holding a big wad of money in one hand and a pineapple in the other! Funny motherfuckers, those two.

Sorry, the artwork I was talking about is from Bulletproof Wallets. But get Pretty Toney anyway. Like esar says, it's one of the best albums this year. It's my most listened to album of 2004.

So, Esar, how did the shuffle night go? ;)

It was dope thanks!

It could have been busier but as it was one of the hottest days of the year they didn't do too bad (they made a profit) but highlights were Infinite Livez (his live show is amazing with crazy puppets, plastic swords and a Princess Diana blow up doll) who did songs about crisps and my Little Pony and UK DMC champ Blakey who smashed it even though he played 'I Wanna Sex You Up'.

I'm looking forward to the next one already!

Sounds dope.

Maybe we should all get to the next one for a Hip-Hop meet?

Ben said he will be emailing you soon. ;)

Yeah the hip-hop meet has been long touted. I say it's up to the London heads to identify a suitable show. I mean, I suggested those Wu shows, the DMC's and even invited fools up to Scotland for those PBWolf/Madlib/Prince Paul shows in May. So far, no meet. We just need a good show and we'll do it. So long as Das can get the night off work ;)

Madvillain- Madvillainy

'Nuff Said.  ;)

What did you make of this, by the way?

One of the grimiest, coolest clubs in Scotland (Dundee's Reading Rooms) put on an all day barbeque in their beer garden yesterday. I was getting stoned and the DJ played America's Most Blunted. It sounded great coming out of a top sound system. It was just cool to see drunken milfs and aging hippies rocking out to Madlib beats with students and posh birds alike. Heads weren't ready for the voice of Lord Quas :D

Also, if you click the link in my sig you should see my idea for my honours project. As research I've been watching a bunch of crap 60's trash and on Saturday night I checked out Russ Meyer's 'Motorpsycho.' Basically, the incidental background music was playing along as this truck stopped on a desert road. I noticed that it was sampled at the end of the Madvillain track 'Rainbows' (sick tune). Listen to it. You can hear the truck stopping :(

I love it when shit happens like that. The sample hit me like a brick in the face.

It's cool to think Madlib also digs 60s trash. I'm also well into my Dhalsim references. It really is no wonder why I love his shit so much.

Loved it. Seriously.

I was worried it may be over hyped but its just so smoooooth. Galaxy chocolate type flows over some of the best beats.

In short I thought it was the jam.

I read your 'something cool' topic. I would love to help you with that, sounds like fun.

I might get in contact with Stones Throw and see if Madlib is available for doing my soundtrack. Strictly 60s trash-based. Practically built on Russ Meyer samples (those soundtracks to his flicks are funky shit, all you crate diggers. If you ever see one, buy that shit).

Mobb Deep - Win Or Lose

It's more 60's spy flicks and trash skin flicks, actually. Not very hip-hop. I just figured my lecturers would be sick of all this grafitti and pimped out shit I've been doing for the last 4 years.

I just bought this:

B0002CX66Q.02.LZZZZZZZ.jpg

So far, it's a nice little bunch of instrumentals. I recommend fools check it out. There's one awesome blues style cut, mashed up with funky flutes. This is good.

Fust-o: I'm glad to hear Mobb Deep's new stuff is sounding good. No more Nelly collabo's, please :unsure:

Looking forward to checking out Alchemist's album soon enough.

EDIT: OMFG. I just heard a track on Blend Crafters with some smoothed out melodic horns and a looped piano melody. Quite aptly, it's title is 'The Shit' B)

You know it!

Was it you recommending the Non-Prohets album Das?

If it was I agree but have you heard the single remixed by MF Doom featuring Slug and Brother Ali? I just found it by accident searching through Picadilly Records website. Its fucking sick!

I'd be up for some kind of meet if there's some forewarning - I might need a place to crash for the nite though.

I've been listening to this all weekend -

sq-vlad-biggie-mixtape.jpg

Full of rare and unreleased rhymes, quite a lot of it is new to me.

Bought from here - Official Mixtapes - really good service. Bought a Kanye West compilation which is getting a lot of rotation too. Most of the mix(cds) are erring towards the G-Unit side of things but there's some interesting stuff.

The mention of Supreme Clientele lead me to dig out my MD - One and the Nugget are f'n bangas! I listened to Ironman earlier at the weekend but I don't think it has stood up as well as some of the other early Wu solo albums.
