  1. Oh dope, this was on my release radar last Friday and I had no idea it was Mike. I saw Amir back in Chicago opening for Mike, and he was fire.
  2. Yea you're the only one I've heard of. First, there's a reason it's a demo verse and didn't make the studio cut. I don't know what you consider cheesy about it, I guess that's opinion. I like him telling a story of coming up as a teen. Yea it's not your standard hip hop teenager story but Mike wasn't the standard and that's exactly what you'd expect. You're not going to say "damn why is pusha t rapping about selling drugs? That was cheesy" because you know where he came from and what he knows - there's an expectation there and Mike delivered IMO If you want to talk about flow, this is his first time spitting live so I think it's safe to say he didn't nail every lyric 100%. If you compare the live performance to the lyrics Mike posted himself, you'll know he didn't nail it 100%. That's what a live performance is. Still he spit 8 bars with a recurring 5 syllable rhyme scheme he hit about 12 times, it completely fits the track and Mike doesn't rap off the beat at all. No way I'll think it's awkward
  3. I can't wait, this is amazing news. I think K Flay and Mike could both use more awareness. I don't think enough people know about either of them or the great music both of them make. K Flay is talented af
  4. Beautiful playlist, beautiful words. This day is going to be hard for a lot of us today, and that's okay. Thank you

    One Year

    I can't help but to watch this video and believe it's foreshadowing
  6. you have gotta be kidding it's a hobby we're living we were properly spitting to some wobbly rhythm popping off in the kitchen at parties properly hidden i was probably nervous but still i gotta forget him jacket possibly referencing some army division and camouflage-like images all my idols within them trying to avoid kids my mom strongly forbidden so i was probably skipping out doing robbery with them good kid and lived in the bubble and barely knew it probably couldn't recognize trouble to get into it trying to find like-minded rhymers to make a crew with but nobody liked the same type of music i'm used to it thing is new* opportunities i didn't know what to do with sitting there on a sofa with smokers gamers* and users* knowing i'm not stupid but too unsteady to prove it maybe i'm running to it but maybe i'm running through it
  7. MGK had a solid verse, he really impressed me. One of the best I've heard from him, but he seemed like he was featured because Ryu and Mike fell out. It seems like that's exactly the track Ryu would be on, MGK no matter how good still sounds like a replacement to me, just because Ryu doesn't make much music now makes him worse? Dude has one of the most underrated flows in the game right now, he rides and bodies just about every beat he's been on. Don't need to bring irrelevant Reseda beach stuff up, that's not relevant to the conversation I'll listen to Make it up as I go twice for you and you can just take About you twice. I think K Flay has two solid albums, I like almost anything she puts out now. Her voice, not unlike Skylar Grey, is incredibly polarizing IMO
  8. MGK is nothing but a Ryu replacement to me, I feel like Ryu would have been on that track five years ago - and would have come with a better feature. Chino kills it though I absolutely love the K Flay track, it sounds like she had a hand in the production I love Brooding, I could listen to Mike's instrumentals all day About You is still the least favorite song I have listened to, I wish Mike took his lyrics and put them on a better track. HE GOES IN ON IOU HOLY GUAC. My jaw dropped about 25 seconds and and stayed until he finished his second verse World's On Fire seems like it's the second weakest track on the album Can't Hear You Now is a great ending to the album. So proud of Mike, so impressed by him
  9. I feel like we both read what Rick had to say and got two completely different understandings from it. Nowhere was it implied to me that Rick suggested replacing Chester. I don't think rick saying it was a different dynamic is a bad thing. Rick obviously is heavily respected from the whole band, and after working together for so long they have rapport. Wasn't he right? They gave fans closure and I think they gave closure for themselves with the concert. You said it yourself when Mike said he appreciated the other artists but knows that nobody stacked up to him, even when everyone else from LP is intact. I see it as Rick telling Mike they should try it once, instead of letting that anxiety and build up steamroll them. I think after the concert, it helped them be more comfortable with whatever it is moving forward
  10. I won't ever know close to the info astat does, but I'm at least a hip hop head and ye stan
  11. The song we major was originally a Kanye track, featuring Nas I think, off of his second album, late registration
  12. I read this on Linkinpedia Styles Of Beyond's management company Spytech Records in April 2005 announced, “xt type deal. Machine Shop Records has the same vision as Styles of Beyond and are here to make changes to the hip-hop game. S.O.B. has also been working on their first major label appearance, “ FORT MINOR ” which features Mike Shinoda ( Linkin Park ), Common, Black Thought (The Roots), Kanye West, Kenna, and more. And catch this…the album is executive produced by none other than (drum roll please) JAY-Z!” It was correct about every other artist, so I thought there might be some truth to another song..Kanye was right in Jay's camp at the time, produced and worked with Common a ton around that time, and brought up Lupe Fiasco. I feel like it makes sense around that time, anywhere from 03-06
  13. Is there a track that didn't make the final cut of Rising Tied that had Kanye featured?
  14. Watching the Weenie Roast right now, it's incredibly emotional. It's tough watching him have to intentionally skip and transition around Chester's parts, and it must have been hard for Mike for create his setlist with that in the back of his mind consistently. Proud of him for picking himself up and going solo, there's always going to be that part missing though, but it's not fair to keep dwelling on it. I didn't like the vocals on Papercut, and i personally hope that isn't what he uses more of going forward. It's all up to Mike and the band though, I'll respect all decisions made
