  • normaloctagon oh yuppp. I'm western US but not on the west coast. was up late doing my nite owl thang trying to wrap up this review. length is killing me rn, I'll be able to trim it a bit more but not much without axing my vision for it. *sighs* I'll probably just end up doing a super short review on something else afterwards to make up for it
    November 18 01:48 AM
  • normaloctagon nice Cure rating
    November 18 01:28 AM

    November 11 02:46 AM
  • Lord(e)Po)))ts cheers good homie
    November 10 10:39 PM
  • Lord(e)Po)))ts Hey man, i know we are in a pandemic and money is tight for everyone but I put together a gofundme for minushuman. I dont know if you saw his list but he suffered a pretty brutal loss this weekend and I thought maybe we could all chip in a few bucks and help him out with groceries or rent or whatever this month while he works through this tough time. If you can donate a few bucks and share this with some other users to help spread the word that would be awesome: https://gf.me/u/y743c5
    November 10 03:47 AM
  • Drifter My bad I didn?t see you shoutboxed my other account. Yeah I got som recs. Check out 909 Boyz - Royal Flush... Paris - Unleashed... Rappin 4-Tay - Off Parole... 3 really different but all amazing west coast albums
    November 10 01:10 AM
  • normaloctagon haha aye no worries of course. masochist bumped my doom rankings thread and I was like let's check in with the mans maybe write a little rap too. this dj akoza rec is proper chop'd n screw'd stuff man. I'm halfway through and it's giving my morning life rn. I don't have nearly enough of this sort of thing. check out SwuM. - PUF. for a boom bap take on chopped n screwed. super short n sweet lil release
    November 6 04:37 PM

    November 5 09:44 PM
  • Winesburgohio always m8! just to rudely proffer one of my own: i reckon you'd **** with DJ Cam's Mad Blunted Jazz
    October 28 05:27 AM
  • normaloctagon thx m8. and yeah, definitely peep quas. his approach can get a bit repetitive as the albums pile up but I return to his music often. "the unseen" is the classic. I'll peep some of your reviews soon too. oooo 'moment of truth 5'--yes
    October 26 11:29 PM
  • normaloctagon aye mr. speedy reply. I'm not sure where the rest of my original shoutbox comment went (or are they literally 'shouts?' lol), but I was promoting my most recent review to you (donell jones) since I remembered you from the imm technique thread as a hip-hop lover. check it out when you have some time, I'd love to hear what you think. I spent this morning listening to all my hip-hop vinyl after submitting it--and it was a good morning indeed. Do you enjoy Lord Quas? can't find any in your ratings.
    October 26 09:26 PM
  • normaloctagon you seem to really appreciate the hip-hop/r
    October 26 07:05 PM
  • JefferyBigglestein ?
    October 25 03:45 PM
  • Winesburgohio Summers End, Dopestyle, Don't Turn Your Back (especially), Currents and Creeping I think, although it's all so good and fits and weaves seamlessly
    October 25 07:19 AM
  • Winesburgohio yo thanks for introducing me to Peanut Butter Breaks!! glidin thru my headphones on constant rotation
    October 25 05:25 AM
  • DaHound https://discord.gg/2Pqpsh
    October 9 04:53 AM
  • DaHound His songs with Nas are always fire as hell. Why You Hate The Game is one of his best songs. As a stan for anything g funk and west coast related and being a native, Game is definitely the continuation of the west coast legacy and almost singlehandedly held it up until YG came around. And Game was still making better records while YG went on one of the most depressing declines in recent rap history
    October 9 04:45 AM
  • DaHound I?m right there with you. I first heard it freshman year of high school and I must?ve listened to it combined 50 times. Still my favorite Game and still one of the best rap albums ever made to me. I?m with you on the name drops thing I always loved references from people anyways so Game was like a dream come true. And I would much rather him have insane respect for everyone in the rap game before him than to throw shots and disrespect them. Game?s my dude man I gotta throw on doc 2 now haha
    October 9 04:42 AM
  • DaHound Also I know we?be never talked but you always bump the hip hop thread so you wanna join a discord with some other kinda older and more inactive users? I need someone to talk deep about hip hop with lol
    October 9 12:17 AM
  • DaHound Bro you gave the documentary 2 a 5 wtf when we ****ing
    October 9 12:15 AM
  • Halfman AYYYYEEE you a big vince carter fan?
    September 3 12:53 AM
  • Hurricanslash I should probably try that again once I'm finished with my exams on monday. But ay, if you wanna hit me up on Discord, my name is Hurrican#7201
    December 7 02:19 PM
  • Hurricanslash Ayy, pretty good, how about you? I`m not on Sput much anymore these days, Im usually just chilling on the Discord. I see youve been rating a lot of stuff pretty recently, so I guess youre more active than me nowadays. :D
    December 6 01:41 PM
  • LambsBread i dont know i still kinda hate it
    March 27 05:37 AM
  • LambsBread idk dude I just wish people would stop seeing the world through the black-white spectrum, I really feel like people making rap songs like TPAB in 2015 are just doing it for attention, and whether or not you think that's true, at least notice how much attention Kendrick actually did get...
    March 17 10:53 AM
  • LambsBread no I liked that album a lot, it was funny
    March 15 04:43 PM
  • GnarlyShillelagh you right you right, i'ma go get some and then right a few
    March 14 02:34 AM
  • ParanoidAndroid96 I know it's dumb to get in arguments about racism over the internet, but I actually can't help it
    March 14 01:06 AM
  • ParanoidAndroid96 god these people
    March 13 11:40 PM
  • sunbathory i doubt there is much i can do at this point but i guarantee u that discussion in the gkmc thread will go no where. trust me ive had argument about race relations with ppl on here (including hillary) and i can guarantee you it will go no where you will eventually get exhausted and stop responding just out of apathy at which point he'll say he won the argument because u didn't respond and it will be a mess. this is like 100 percent what always happens but i guess do what u want jus heads up
    March 13 08:58 AM
  • GnarlyShillelagh bruh that's a great question, idk i needs to tho
    March 9 06:26 PM
  • Hurricanslash That sounds cool! Do you have anything recorded I could listen to?^^
    March 9 08:57 AM
  • Hurricanslash Yoooo, I just now saw that you gave me a soundoff for my current mixtape! Thanks man! Also, I'm working every day to get better with flowing and to have some kind of confidence in my voice! What did you think of the concept/story behind the tape?
    March 7 04:19 PM
  • Hep Kat that was u being mean? dam b uz a bish azz
    March 3 01:55 PM
  • Hep Kat fortunately she's old enough now to use cough drops when she gets sick, so we're able to manage her colds that way. my mom has emphysema too, and she has an endless prescription for the big bottles, so if we go over there for dinner, instead of having a beer or a glass of wine or w/e, sometimes i'll fix myself a small glass of lean. i've never drank more than one small bottle's worth at one time, because it's completely unnecessary- that s*** creeps up on ya over time
    March 2 01:25 PM
  • Hep Kat i didnt feel think it was, and i appreciate your concern. i don't do it very often. like, i only do it when someone in my immediate family has a script they're not using. i've never gone and copped it from johnny douchebag on the corner of da block. for example, my daughter won't take any cough medicine. period. so when she gets a script for that, i fill it, and i'll make lean out of it. it's weird because i can remember being her age (5) and loving the taste of prometh/codeine
    March 2 01:22 PM
  • Hurricanslash Really? Can you name an example? Maybe my nostalgia-goggles are too big.
    March 1 03:43 PM
  • Hep Kat YOU? dare question ME? do you doubt my powarz boy?
    March 1 02:19 PM
  • Hurricanslash I don't even know why, they are still so on point with their lyrics. And I just happen to listen to Rap almost exclusively for the lyrics. Why is this considered stupid nowadays again?
    March 1 09:22 AM
  • Hurricanslash Same here, same here. It's just that, the Hip-Hop part of Sput is soooo small, and you can barely enjoy anything without someone jumping in your face for it. It just ticks me off.
    February 28 03:24 PM
  • Hurricanslash Heyyo man, what's up? Also angry at the hip-hop part of Sput right now?
    February 27 09:06 PM
  • gagnonov honestly didn't really enjoy this one, thought it was kinda bland. Daily Operation and Hard To Earn are probs my favorites tho. you should check out Reloaded by Roc Marciano, kind of like a slower paced Raekwon with the same descriptive smooth ass flow
    February 25 08:53 AM
  • Let Totally dude, here's some real chill stuff. Terekke - (discog) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F1Qmi34ouCQ Kerri Chanlder - Atmosphere EP https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kt0gB5r0Mko D.

  • Let Yo cool dig, I really like Still Tippin'. Nardo Akura also sampled lost woods in one of his songs, check it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J1dNmHiBWT0
    February 21 03:50 AM
  • HalfManHalfAmazing one day that huge glob of hip hop is going to be a tiny blurb and when that day comes i will rightfully take my place as part of the sputnik elite/ sputnik master race
    February 20 07:36 AM
  • Let And of course Friendzone https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fkKooMgPBmE (these guys have produced for Main Attrakionz)
    February 10 09:54 PM

    February 10 09:52 PM
  • LambsBread np dude i think youll like it, its a really diverse album but yeah Still Comin Up is one of my favorites. could you tell me some songs where Drake raps like he does in Game's song "Good Girls Go Bad" like no singy hooks, no autotune, and just rap about s*** like Simpsons and Ninja Turtles?
    February 1 08:23 AM
  • LambsBread try this link for that Ellay Khule albumhttps://play.spotify.com/album/0WAimzrq9ZWhlzXTFp88i1
    January 31 08:23 PM
  • HalfManHalfAmazing gotta start rationing out these 4s
    January 28 03:16 AM
  • SharkTooth sure dude, Try These out:Primal Scream-Screamadelica, Deep Purple-In Rock, Truckfighters-Gravity X, Funkadelic-Maggot Brain, Elder-Dead Roots Stirring, Kyuss-Welcome To Sky Valley, Deep Purple-Machine Head, and Doctor Smoke-The Witching Hour
    January 22 03:28 AM
  • Hurricanslash Ahh, so that's the reason. Yeah, people get offended too easy nowadays.
    January 21 06:10 PM
  • SharkTooth brick also once had Unknown Memory 5'd jsyk
    January 21 03:17 PM
  • SharkTooth he just released a new album
    January 21 02:05 PM
  • Hurricanslash Ohhhh s***, okay, yeah, I understand why you would change it. Damn.
    January 21 01:27 PM
  • SharkTooth you into Lupe Fiasco?
    January 21 03:25 AM
  • LambsBread Hasn't changed since I made that list, except i'd switch Ellay Khule in for Talib Kweli
    January 20 10:00 PM
  • LambsBread http://www.sputnikmusic.com/list.php?memberid=1035697
    January 20 09:57 PM
  • Hurricanslash Nah, I meant the blackface thing.
    January 20 08:44 PM
  • Hurricanslash Yo, what exactly did you say about Lean in your review? I'm pretty curious. Also, I see you're enjoying the new album by Joey as well! I was just thinking of asking you about it.
    January 20 11:13 AM
  • Keyblade sup man, you can check out my latest list. the first 10 or so albums i consider to be essential
    January 13 07:17 AM
  • Hurricanslash I'm guilty of that as well, but yeah, as you said, it's all about the attitude you have about it. I mean, as much as I hate on that new Sremmurd-album, I still absolutely love No Flex Zone. SharkTooth, Lambs and you are the only ones I can name from off of my head who aren't this insufferable about Rap at the moment on here.
    January 11 12:33 PM
  • Hurricanslash I noticed that a lot of people on here give zero ****s about lyrics in rap, if they aren't ridiculously stupid and endlessly quotable, care more about how much the beats "slap" and have a distinct disdain against more thought out/deep lyrics.
    January 11 12:11 PM
  • Hurricanslash I'm doing fine, how about you? That's basically exactly what happened. Wanted to tell you this before, btw, thank you for being someone who doesn't have this weird approach to hip-hop as most other people on here do.

  • melonade Id rather die than **** with rym lmao
    December 28 07:51 PM
  • melonade Guess I have to leave sputnik then smh
    December 27 12:58 PM
  • unclereich dude everything ugle puts out is 5/5
    December 18 03:20 AM
  • melonade I flex 24/7 sorry
    December 17 09:08 PM
  • ChoccyPhilly Hey man, check out Signor Benedick the Moor's recent EP? Seems like your kind of thing
    December 17 09:01 PM
  • melonade nah
    December 17 11:04 AM
  • melonade Well their music for one, not to mention their awful individual persons in the band. The time in which they made their music also. Plus the name is really blah. So Is the cover art. Just literally everything
    December 13 02:41 AM
  • melonade hahaha **** I hate myself for not getting that
    December 10 09:02 PM
  • melonade Wha
    December 10 04:24 PM
  • SharkTooth Acknowledge atm, but it changes too often since his stuff is so good
    December 9 06:14 PM
  • SharkTooth I agree so hard man, Slaughtahouse and Disposable Arts are two of my all time faves
    December 9 04:08 AM
  • SharkTooth Nice Masta Ace ratings
    December 8 07:54 PM
  • ChoccyPhilly Sweet! I used to hate the genre but I found out the more experimental stuff appealed to me a fair bit. You should check out the recent Signor Benedick The Moor EP, Opus 3. I really enjoyed that and that and Clipping is the kinda stuff I'm looking for right now
    December 6 06:42 PM
  • LambsBread thanks for reminding me of Acid Rain Drops with that album rating, that needs a review bad.
    December 6 09:44 AM
  • LambsBread oh yeah i know riverside, i got a coworker who is from there, says he hates it lol, i dont really see why though
    December 6 09:43 AM
  • ChoccyPhilly haha I'm not that bad. There are people who make 10k within their first year and I didn't manage that. I'm here everyday and i post about 20 times at least but most of my comments did come over the summer when I didn't have too much to do, so that explains it really. Oh yeah, and I've been trying out Clipping if you've heard of them
    December 3 09:50 AM
  • deathschool Who's dat in your prof pic?
    December 3 09:42 AM
  • ChoccyPhilly Somewhat. My 2nd last rated album was a nice hip hop EP and is more of the stuff I'm after. Give it a listen?
    December 3 03:32 AM
  • Trundle Ah, I come back from time to time, have had to focus on medical issues which ive had my whole life, but yeah, i do come back to check what new albums have dropped n s*** like that
    December 3 12:24 AM
  • LambsBread yeah, although i'm not living there right now, where you from?
    December 2 07:37 AM
  • Activista anti-MTV What's up? Nice review of Gang Starr...
    September 3 07:08 AM

  • Hawks I know that.
    March 20 06:55 PM
  • Hawks Eh I did NWA as a 3. I tend to not listen to the s***ty albums.
    March 19 07:13 PM
  • Hawks I don't?
    March 19 01:12 AM
  • TheIllmatics i lol'd at your comment on that dude's black milk's album of the year review.
    March 3 10:24 PM
  • PurpleDrank nahh man
    January 22 03:47 AM
  • TheIllmatics did you really give soulja boy's album a 5?
    January 20 12:15 AM
  • Trundle Well the one song i listened to had the annoying high pitch voice ib the background.
    January 19 06:38 PM
  • Trundle Hey, only got a chance to listen to one song, was down with the mc-ing if i remember but no so much with the production. Since then i've had to take an impromptu trip from Canada to Cali for personal reasons. I'll give him another listen when I get home, no worries.
    January 19 09:19 AM
  • Trundle for sure man, but he better be brinin no gimmicks! hah
    January 15 08:31 AM
  • Bulldog its funny how i predicted that somebody would make a soundoff like that before i even actually posted mine.
    January 10 02:37 AM
  • SwagChef hey mang. i see you like your hip hop. me too. welcome! im bulldog, but im currently serving my ban. enjoy your stay here and if you have any questions or anything id be more than willing to help dude. happy posting!
