Totally forgot UG. Should still have that CD floating around somewhere. 'Just a little samba' was a sure skip though. Kinda brought that whole thing down.

Not Depeche Mode, we're on Fresh Mode.

Big Tony shhnow dude here. Like cloud rap Michigan shit even if that word combo makes me wanna self harm.

Fucking flabbergasted by the ugly duckling inclusion our.
You got a fav J5 song too?
Honestly J5 were cooler

Next it'll be 7L n esoteric!

Seeing a lot of personal growth on here between that n Killah Priest. Heady times

d said...

Actually I think I solely see Tony as Michigan style cos he's funny

That's the only Tony Shhnow song I've liked to date. Coincidentally, it's the only Tony Shhnow song I've heard which has a hook.

Jayou is the J5 song I dig. Never wanna hear Concrete Schoolyard again in my life.

d said...

He has hooks, sometimes. Not many songs more than 3 mins long though so prob not martorialist material

I watched Never Been Kissed recently n the nonciest thing bout it was the suggestion that the cool kids were into Ozomatli.

I don't necessarily mind short songs if there's some semblance of songwriting there. It's short songs which are basically first-take freestyles which bore the shit outta me. Ol' freestyle friday arse rappers.
