i like it
obviously a throwaway. This shyt is average as hell. Still...there's a couple of tracks that go.
Vado did that Vino sample
LIstened yesterday and Imma listen later today but Imma keep it real....Conway ain’t that nice on the mic anymore and he lacks lyrical creativity...the beats can’t save him after a while. All in my opinion but imma listen again....talkin about mixtapes before albums but the lyrical content be the same as the mixtapes literally the same
Edit and im a little salty this nikka WSG talkin about retirement because when he wants to rap he raps his ass off
Listened again it's dope, Hawks, Tito's, Black Spoons are all dirty
but he said "Imma get my youngin" on this project and that's an automatic 5 point deduction
How many young bulls and youngins you got Conway
I'm with that/
My click packed, full of Piranhas
My shyt clap
You'll get flipped back into August
I fukkING HATE BENNY....so simple but it hits hard with no effort God damn his entire verse I hate Benny I swear to God
Almost fell asleep to this shyt
Definitely feel he's new shyt isn't as original as what he was putting out from 15-17.
I tend to compare everything to The Cow and a few other tracks and I don’t like how he be repeating himself...if he says he doesn’t write then he needs to write ..we will see on the next album because the first album was aiight
Benny just has it
West is unique and if you bypass his voice his lyrical ability is up there
Conway has too many hit and misses lyrically
Camino a baby WSG but he has some really good introspective tracks
Mach Homicide better than all of em
Those albums and beats are weak compared to his classic run...where's the keep it thoro,we gon make it, mobb nukkaz, the forest,legendary street team bangers at..he used to have them head nodding jawnts that been missing for years
I’m gonna try to take away my bias and hopefully give a suitable answer as a beatmaking nerd. Al has had 4 main eras where his style had signature changes: 1998-2003. 2004-2010. 2011-2015. 2016-present. Obviously there is some overlap in periods and some rappers may pick beats that were made in older time periods, etc.
I could break down the key signatures of each era but there’s no point. Based on your list it seems like you mostly prefer Al’s 98-03 era style. Because I don’t think you named a joint more recent than 2002.
And I got friends in the game I respect that thought 1st Infantry in 2004 was a fall off for him. So I’m not knocking you whatsoever for your opinion. Taste is subjective.
I do think it’s interesting everything you named is 15+ years ago. Not to say you’re wrong but to say if that’s the case, then I’m surprised that you’d be talking about a fall off that I assume you think probably happened over a decade ago.
And those are classic joints. I love ‘em. But I’m not expecting him to make anything that sounds like that, given that he’s one of the rare beat makers that (for better or worse) never seems to stay in one zone for more than a few years.
Al is one of my favorite producers but I’ll give you this. I do think there are some beats (the occasional lazy loop) he makes now dats that are called dope because he did them, whereas if I did them I wouldn’t be getting nearly the same level of praise. But I’d also say this applies to 90% of established producers.
This shyt really light
lol its funny you posted this
when i heard the conway track i figured id be the only person to think of this vado song
