    You don't eff with Khrysis??? To me he's been markedly better/funkier than 9th for a decade plus at this point.

    Nottz is next level compared to those guys. He degraded himself joining their crew IMO.

    The Testify joint is tight to me I love Tek N Steele doing the back and forth style that they've been known to do. My only issue is the track is too short.

    The Rhapsody thing really needs to stop already although I can imagine how hilarious it would have been if Sean Price was asked his thoughts on her collaboration with his crew members.

    Dapping mostly for the latter part. Nottz is maybe the best beatmaker on earth to me.

    Khrysis definitely has some odd melody choices. He likes a lot of really zaney and bugged out sounds. He was the first of the bunch to really step outside of soul samples and sample obscure shyt. He used to flip Sesame Street records and stuff like that.

    Is this the kind of stuff you mean by weird melodies?

    yes, i cant get into Illmind (who is very widely respected) for similar reasons. i know thats your old college friend, i respect his resume but i simply cant get into his stuff. i love Elzhi but did not like the recent project

    Do you really think of him as being in their crew though?

    he as doing beats for Jamla artists before he was ever involved in any official capacity. He only produced 1 joint on that compilation they dropped that was over 20 songs long, and he still does most of his placements and projects with other artists. He's been Soul Council since 2014 and I think he may have done like 7 or 8 total beats for them in 5 years.

    Nah breh you're good. I understand. You know production and we have a lot of similar tastes. I actually used to like Illmind a lot when he first hit the scene but around 2010/2011 when he basically stopped sampling I stopped liking most of his stuff. Not because he stopped sampling. I like a lot of beats without samples, but his specific sound change just wasn't for me.

    He also really has this image on social media where he's portraying himself as like the Gary Vee of hip-hop producers. I think it's a little bit irritating even though I know he's trying to help people.

    The irony is Nottz was/is a huge influence on Khrysis and he would arguably not make beats like this 1st link without being influenced by beats like the 2nd (from Nottz).

    i thought it was cool of 9th to reach out, and Nottz to accept it. i like when producers bond, especially guys who have carved out lanes in their respective sounds

    Nottz is the king of creative drums to me, ive always thought he was a top shelf talent

    And the bass lines... they’re so groovy and they sound like nobody else.

    For example over Xmas I wanted to listen to this song and I had no idea back when it dropped that Nottz did it. But I heard the bass lines and realized it had to be Nottz. I googled and I was right.
