      STMB   01/22/2017

      Sorry for the outage. The board went down for repairs on January 5th, and we didn't expect to be out for a full 16 days.  STMB is using a default skin, as you can see, and that will probably be the case for a few weeks.  Meanwhile, the board is working better than it ever has before.

AMPLIFIED.

14 posts in this topic

I threw on Amplified earlier today and I don't understand how an album like that could be so slept on!

The album was WAY ahead of it's time thanks to DJ Scratch and Dilla.

How does everyone else feel about this album?

i think it had that effect on lots of people. many were hating on tip for the now acusstomed to girls shaking their thang on his vibrant video. many felt the video was blinged out when they saw tip in in...

tip n ass - no way.......

in an interview he even stressed he wanted to go in different directions regarding that video and stuff.

soooooo... many saw the video .... they walked........ many slept...... they were saying to themselves.... "this is the guy from low end theory??????????

i used to play "lets ride" at parties and other dj's - would be like yeah i got that, and realized how dope that that track was.....

but that's just me, with my mini scene in my city....

yeah, i copped it back when it droped. it is actually a nice groove. but at the time, we were already devistated at the break up of tribe. then for tip to do this..... at the time, most heads felt like one of their own had betrayed them. back then, if you wasnt feeling what was on the radio or on BET then you was either a "hater" or a "backpacker" or both. i had another point, but i forgot. oh well. i liked amplified then and i still listen to it on occasions.

good album, i wanna hunt down the instrumentals. The drums on "breathe and stop" is bananas, I think dj scratch did that beat. But dilla stole the show.

dilla did it. scratch only did two joints on there. n.t. is crazy too. always laughing my ass off when at the end. i like that album alot and i don't understand why it should be slept on. the videos were on mtv all day. maybe the hardcore peeps slept, but the world wasn't.
