    Would recommend checking out “Thought vs Everybody” by Black Thought. Twisting words to rhyme, just absolutely stellar. Dare I say it, GOAT. Best to ever do it.

    Nice reminder. It popped up on my YouTube a couple of days ago and meant to listen. Epic as always, this popped up straight after as well which is another epic 5+ minutes from him.

    New Nas album tomorrow to look out for.

    The Firm has a reunion track on there too which is cool.

    Yeah I'm excited. A new Nas lp is like a lucky dip, you never know what you'll get. The production is often terrible which is a shame as he is one of my favourite rappers. The lead single is good but nothing special.

    Well he's definitely addressed the production issue, there's some great beats on the album.

    Only issue I have so far is that some of his verses/songs are a bit short.

    Just finished first listen. I see what you mean about some short tracks.First impression is I like it but much like his last album I doubt it will still be in rotation in a couple of weeks. While the beats are all nice there's nothing stand out.

    Edit...Okay near the end of second listen, it's growing on me a lot.

    Drum & bass, but some exceptional lyricism from Harry Shotta

    Shotta is fire over drum and bass as a straight up host MC. Second coming of MC Shabba D but way more lyrical.

    New black thought track up on YouTube feat killer Mike and pusha t. Pretty much my three favourites. Beat is pretty average and the annoying swizz beats voice is on it but the three verses are excellent.

    Edit..I'll have to check out that new lox

    Enjoying Coffee & Kush Vol 2 by Problem atm. He’s been consistently underrated for a while.

    Not strictly hip hop but the new Morrisson track feat. Jordan is haaaaaaard. East London meets Salford and these two really don't fuck about, at all

    https://youtu.be/ajvIxmkvOG0

    Jordans' recent Fire in the Booth is pretty on point too.

    This channel makes music using freestyles and archival interview footge from rappers, I've never really been into Kanye but I really loved this. The whole channel is just butter.

    Been listening to this on and off for the past week.

    Not convinced it works as an album, and there are one or two duds, but my God it's good to have proper Busta back. Some of the tracks are great.
