Game – Diamonds (ft. K-Young)

Posted by tyltempest on 03/28/2010

Don’t know if it’s off of R.E.D. but this shit is smooth.  K-Young is also the same singer off of Bone Thugs’ song Meet Me In The Sky.

Kardinal Offishall ft. Rock City – Bring It Back

Posted by tyltempest on 08/30/2009

I don’t know the story behind this or which track came first: the original version of Forever or this.  The hook is even exactly the same save a few lines in the latter half.  Kardinal rips this though, second to Eminem’s verse on the latest version of this track.

Drake ft. Lil Wayne, Kanye West, Eminem – Forever

Posted by tyltempest on 08/27/2009

Drake ft. Lil Wayne, Kanye West, Eminem – Forever

It’s out, and it didn’t go as horribly as I imagined.  In fact, each rapper managed to drop a dope verse.  Lil Wayne made sense, Kanye did away with autotune, and Eminem did away with his accent, and Drake just did his thing.  Dope track all around.

Also, supposedly this isn’t the final version, as there’s supposed to be a different singer on the hook this time around, so we’ll see when that surfaces.  I’ll update this post with a tagless version when one surfaces.

UPDATE: The link has been updated with a tagless version.

Jay-Z – Venus vs. Mars

Posted by tyltempest on 08/26/2009

Jay-Z – Venus vs. Mars

Another Blueprint 3 leak.  I hope this is the last of the club-type tracks, because as it is, Blueprint 3 already isn’t living up to it’s namesake.  It’s not bad, but if this album is going to be one of the best of the year, Jay needs to get serious on the rest of the tracks.

Jay-Z – Reminder

Posted by tyltempest on 08/24/2009

Jay-Z – Reminder

Another leak from Blueprint 3, and another Timbo produced beat.  Again, not bad.  Jay’s verses are better on this, but the beat and hook aren’t up to par.  And Jay-Z’s new ad-lib is nothing short of retarded now.  AWH!

Jay-Z ft. Drake – Off That

Posted by tyltempest on 08/23/2009

Jay-Z ft. Drake – Off That

I was anticipating this track and I’m pretty disappointed.  It’s not too bad, but Jay doesn’t sound right on the beat.  Second, Drake doesn’t even get a verse, demoted to hook duty here.  The worst part about that though, is that he’s not even singing.  It’s like he’s just there to be there.  This will probably end up a single.

Black Milk – In the A.M.

Posted by tyltempest on 08/19/2009

Black Milk – In The A.M.

I only first heard of Black Milk a few weeks ago, and his album Tronic quickly became one of my favorites from 2008.  Unlike most producers-turned-rapper, Black Milk isn’t too bad at the latter, and definitely excels at the former.  This is a pretty dope song, though I don’t know if it’s off anything.

Blueprint 3 Official Tracklist

Posted by tyltempest on 08/19/2009

It’s a little hard to read at first but that’s the official tracklisting for Jay-Z’s upcoming Blueprint 3.  Similar enough to the earlier rumored tracklist, one notable change being that Empire’s State of Mind features Alicia Keys and not Nas.  Too many guest features in my opinion, but other than that it looks like this will be one to look forward to.

Regarding the review for Escape Route, it’s coming.  I’ve been busy so I’ve been only typing out a track a day or so for the review, but it will be out soon.

At Least He Knows They Messed Up

Posted by tyltempest on 08/13/2009

Looks like Joe Budden finally spoke on the quality of his album Escape Route on a post at his forums, and sounds like it wont happen again.

Amalgam aint shit…. they supposedly hired some guy who is “incredible” w/ mixing, this was his test run… he failed….

“The Great Escape” will be mixed properly, cuz I’LL be taking care of it, them niggaz obviously don’t know shit about music, & are ruining great music w/ their cheap, cut every corner possible bullshit….

i got y’all on the next run, promise

As far as the review, I’ll have it up tomorrow.  Don’t worry, a day won’t kill you.

Joe Budden Plans “Escape Route”

Posted by tyltempest on 08/11/2009

Alongside Slaughterhouse, today Joe Budden is also dropping an EP to serve as a prelude to his upcoming album The Great Escape.  It is available exclusively on Amalgam Digital.  I’ve already listened my way through it and it’s definitely a step up from his previous albums.  It features some of the better production he’s spit on as well as a guest appearance from the rest of Slaughterhouse, and it can definitely rival his Mood Muzik tapes.  Unfortunately, whoever mastered this did a terrible job.  I’ll have a review up later today or tomorrow.
