    Thats cool. Off the back of that, there's this little bit where they talk about Meth wanting to get RA on a tune and Def Jam vetoed it:

    And weirdly I've started to really like Roc Marciano

    Longshot but does anyone recognise the sample?

    Jeeeeesus this is 🔥🔥🔥

    RA, Gift of Gab and Afro. For my money the three most talented MCs around all on one track. I wish more hip hop was like this these days.

    Anyone listening to the new Flatbush Zombies? It's very very good from my first listen through. Big step up from them when I've mostly just enjoyed specific tracks before now.

    Taster:

    Nice. Speaking of RA, this is surprisingly also good:

    Both those RA tracks are great!

    I really like Meyhem Lauren's flow on this:

    Are you guys familiar with Rhythm Roulette on youtube? Producers pic 3 records at random then have to make a beat with them. It's fascinating.

    Iím far from a Drake fan but Iíll be damned if he hasnít had some of the catchiest tracks released in the last few years. His latest with the Lauryn Hill sample is bloody great.

    I heard Nas is gonna drop a new album.

    I heard Nas owes 300k in tax.

    I heard Nas is a billionaire; he owns a range of businesses, restaurants and because of their success, he's finally in the billionaire club.

    I heard Kelis say Nas used to beat her in their marriage.

    I heard Kanye is gonna produce for the Nas album but Kanye has been all over Trump's recently so I don't know how to feel about getting a Nas album produced by him.

    I heard Eminem is 10 years sober or drug free.

    I heard that unreleased 50 cent power of the dollar album ('98), it's fiyah.

    Tom Caruana (aka the guy that did the Wu Tang vs Beatles thing) did a Biggie "rough versions" remix album

    https://tomcaruanamashups.bandcamp.com/album/rough-versions-vol-6-biggie

    Volume 6. Worth listening to the previous ones too, he's very good.

    Pusha t dropped Daytona today.

    Oh yes. 7 tracks of heaven all produced by Kanye.. personal favourite is "come back baby"..

    Good to see all the reviews are 5/5 or 4/5 even though there is zero radio friendly tracks. Nas said it's a masterpiece.

    I just wish there were more tracks! At least they should have included drug dealer anonymous feat jay z.

    I must have listen to it ten times today whilst doing jobs, haven't heard one week line yet.

    Typical left controversy over the cover, which is Whitney Houston's bathroom.

    Pusha T indeed! Instant classic if you ask me. Concise, raw, melodic... Just grrrreat.

    I'm probably going to hate it soon though, playing it non stop. :/. Each of his solo releases have got better each time. His first lp and maybe three radio tracks on it and and few tracks I skipped. Darkest before dawn about had a couple of radio tracks but was much more consistent. Daytona just fire from start to finish.

    Yeah Daytona is great. As much as I would rate him over Drake though, that Duppy Freestyle is a bit fire.

    Really enjoying Daytona. I think my absolute favourite thing Pusha T has done is We Got It 4 Cheap Volume 2 with Clipse / Re-up Gang.

    I see that Kanye has just dropped his new album, which also is only 7 tracks long, like Daytona (which I'm not really feeling tbh - feels more like a mixtape).

    I can't stop listening to Daytona, it's great. Also there's the beef drama which is entertaining of course.

    I'll give Kanye a shot, interesting if it is also short, but obviously I don't have positive feelings about Ye right now.

    That whole Trump thing wonít make one bit of difference to the success of this Kanye thing. Probably make it more successful. Sad panda.

    @ModoX same and story of adidon is the best thing I've heard in rap for so so many years (diss wise). I hope drake comes back as pusha got more. Hot 97 reporting drake put money on the table for any dirt on pusha :).
