Sound Session #257 (5-2-10)

This week’s SNSS was one of my favorites in quite some time.  We were joined in studio by Grynch, DJ Nphared, and Marcus D, plus we had Substantial and Oddisee call in from the East Coast.  All are dope musicians and good people, so it’s always a pleasure to chop it up with them.  Additionally, we played a ton of great music (well, what’s new) from some of our favorite artists.  Here’s my quick 2 cents on a few of the records:

  • B.o.B & Lupe – can’t wait to see these guys at the Showbox Sodo on Friday
  • N.E.R.D. – I still insist there is no better job in music than being Pharrell
  • M.I.A. – I can’t hear this record without breaking something.  Uber hard.
  • Shad – there’s nobody in the game that makes me rewind for lyrics more than Shad K.  TSOL drops May 25th!
  • Kendrick Lamar – the definition of “spazzing” on a beat
  • Tunji – reminds me of “Paris, Tokyo” in a way…
  • J. Cole – I really wish they woulda left the b-word in the chorus for the radio edit. You can say that these days!
  • Donnis – This record is a sleeping giant. Isn’t Donnis working with Atlantic now? Why aren’t they pushing this? Smash hook.
  • Eminem – Lyrics/flow are insane, as usual, but shoulda got Drake for that chorus. Don’t laugh, it’s true.
  • Public Enemy – Arizona took another L this week, so we thought we’d remind them
  • Nas & Damian Marley – this might be the best album of the year when it’s all said and done
  • Drake – I love this record…and my Jansport still fits!  Imagine that.
