    What do y'all think of this album? Didn't see a thread on it, sorry if I missed it I don't come here all that much.

    I think it's real dope. Alchemist dug and found some excellent brooding samples. Beats are hypnotic and match the dark street raps. Excellent production from Alchemist as usual. "Breeze," is one of the best beats I've ever heard, not an overstatement. Prodigy isn't what he used to be, but I like his flow and cadence. His lyrics focus on bragging and personal pain. There are a few lines in here that hit me.

    Basically this album is nice.

    Hardly wack. I could see if you said you don't like it, but wack? Makes me think you didn't even listen to it.

    These beats are ferocious as fuck.

    I saw this album today when I was browsing Amazon. I'll check out some samples. Prodigy had a couple ill songs from last year... I think they were off of HNIC 3. Lyrically, Prodigy kinda fell off like Kurupt did. They were both dope as fuck and just resorted to some simple ass shit, relying more on texture and mood than intricate schemes and vivid imagery.

    Go ahead and cop it man. From what I've seen you post on here I think you'll like it. Completely agree that Prodigy has fallen off and now relies on simple rhymes, but he has enough content to keep your attention. You can feel the scars and brutal shit in his raps. Plus I think his flow and voice are dope. On top of Alchemist's chopped funk samples and bass, similar to early Mobb Deep shit. It's one of the best LPs I've heard this year along with the Durag Dynasty joint.

    Fair enough. But I hardly consider Prodigy wack. Wack is Gucci Mane and Birdman and morons like that. Prodigy is more like diluted.

    And production will always be paramount to me. Beats are essentially the only musical aspect to hip hop. It's what you hear and move to. Flow and cadence are more important to me than lyrics, as long as you aren't spitting stupid mongoloid shit.

    lyrically prodigy and kurupt were never in the same sentence lyrically still to this day kurupt is still better imo
    prodigy was never some super lyrical like in the same vein as ras kass pun big l rakim nas eminem etc.

    so i don't get that comparison

    perSPECtive = pronounced "SPEK"

    absolutely NOBODY will agree they rhyme because the fact is THEY DON'T. only you.

    it is called slant rhyming they don't rhyme perfectly because don't have the same exact consonants

    Don't waste your time listening to Einstein, both members of Mobb Deep should retire, Havoc's "13" wasn't much better either.
