After the ascendance of greats like DJ Premier, Pete Rock and Q-Tip in the 90s, There was a new wave of producers that would come to prominence in the 2000s who would carry the torch for Hip-Hop and take it in new directions. This new generation of beatmakers included the likes of Madlib, Kanye West, Just Blaze and J Dilla.

Another one of these well-respected track masters was North Carolina’s 9th Wonder, whose warm and soulful records combined with hard boom-bap drums made the Little Brother trio of Phonte, Rapper Big Pooh and 9th one of the most beloved groups of the 00s.

Nakon velike 2015. za domaći Hip Hop, kada se Trap ustoličio i Boom Bap probudio kao nikad u zadnjih 10 godina, vrlo će biti zanimljivo pratiti razvoj istih u 2016. godini. Počinjemo sa najzanimljivijim pjesmama u 1. mjesecu, od sada ću još malo oštriji biti sa kriterijima, kako bi se istakao što kvalitetniji materijal.

Robbie Ettelson:

The only tradition more ingrained into hip-hop than Brag Rap is, of course, Songs About Chicks Rap. These ditties take on many forms, from cautionary tales about the local skeezer, tributes to the one’s who got away or just a general celebration of a particularly enthusiastic groupie. Please note: both ‘Bonita Applebum’ and ‘Roxanne, Roxanne’ have been omitted since I could live without hearing either song again for the next ten years.

„Hrabar nije onaj koji se ne boji. Hrabar je onaj tko se boji i ide naprijed.“

Album se otvara laganim, emocijanalno nabijenim tonovima klavira koji čine idealan soundtrack za život osobe koja je bila na dnu, osobe koja je odlučila da je dosta i da dolazi po svoje. Geraltov prvi vers na ovoj pjesmi je ujedno i jedini vers na albumu u kojem se otvorio i dozvolio nam da ga vidimo ranjivim, da čujemo samo dio stvari koje nosi na duši. Taj prvi, pomalo tužan, no veoma intiman ambijent me navukao da načulim uši i da počnem navijat za underdoga. Tekst te natjera na razmišljanje o vlastitoj okolini, stvarima i ljudima i da se zapitaš gdje se nalaziš. A onda preokret – buđenje. Onaj dio kada underdog kaže „dosta više“. Onaj dio kada shvati koliko je dobar, jak i bolji od ostalih. Onaj dio kada underdog pokaže svima tko je „lead, a tko je backvocal“. Banger samo takav. Instrumental Def Kluny-a za „Poput Slavoja Žižeka“ je defitivni favorit sa albuma. Geralt kroz razno razne usporedbe potvrđuje koliko je vješt wordplayer. Kroz dva lajna se može čuti i Geralt na autotune-u. Moram biti iskren i reći da mi je žao što je toga tako malo. Za razliku od jako puno autotune-ova koje sam čuo njegov zvuči dobro jer nije pretjeran, i nije kreveljenje.

The legendary interview w/ Jay Dee on World Wide dating from Feb 2001, as he speaks on the making of the seminal Welcome 2 Detroit, his production work w/ Pharcyde, Common, Tip and other stories… a must listen. Happy Bday Dilla!

DJ Eclipse:

As dope as these shows were, the best part was the exclusive promos or remixes that Pete or Marley would do/play on the show. Like the Busta Rhymes It’s A Party Pete Rock remix (6:07) that never came out.

Pete and Marley talk to the listeners (4:57) after playing a joint and then come back again at 29:16 (with a PR freestyle), 45:36 and 50:50 (again with a PR freestyle). Everything else is flavas!
