      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.

Was there ever a Thes one/Madlib beef?

33 posts in this topic

In the song by People Under the Stairs, "The Dig", at about 1:28 Thes one spits the line "I know places you dont, dig places you wont, yo fuck a loop digger in my city man just stay home..." and im wondering here if there was ever a beef between the two of them? because i only know madlib as THE loop digger. any thoughts?

and heres a link to the song to check it out.

Either way, its one of my favorites by them.

That is a great track but you are reading too much into it. Thes is using a generic term, not calling out the bad kid.

Yeah, I agree with dude above. Although, I will say that I'd assume Thes would frown upon some of the blatant borrowing that Mablib has done from countless battle, dirty style, break records....Thes is one of them cats that seems anal about making beats in a very specific way...og wax, all samples, no keyboards, etc. It's an honorable way to make beats but whenever people start acting holier than thou about it...they need to chill and just do them.

there are tons of places where madlib has fairly blatently reused parts of songs that have been flipped before......

althought there is a kankick song (can't remember off of what) where he does call out thes one and double k in one line and says that he is double k, and we all know madlib and kankick are homies.........

i made a thread a couple months a go bout that bur noone replied its off seeing spirits and is one of the last tracks on it.

i know on traditional heritage kancick used a people under the stairs cut, but that was years ago.

plus i think all the new shit puts is putting out is really boring and bland but i love their older stuff, havent heard fundmc but i did buy step father and returned it under a week.

ha

word i just copped that kankick joint a couple weeks ago and heard that line, kinda through me off, don't know why he would be talkin shit on them at all, but i totally feel the same about PUTS, i read nothing but bad things about step father and never bothered to cop it, was thinkin about it again recently cause i was bumpin them for a few days straight, but was just deterred yet again, i did hear good things about fundmc though....maybe i'll check that out soon

whattttt?

also, fun dmc is unlistenable at first. i took a few and i dont think the album is killer, but i definately have a few tracks that stick out, though they dont compare to their old shit. too classic to stand up to.

fun dmc is much worse than stepfather to me, jamboree parts 1 and 2 are reminiscient of suite for beaver(s), on and on is too dope, and there are at least two others on there that are solid. fun dmc has some really bad lyrics, even for people, the beats arent even as catchy, theyre trying to reinvent the wheel

Actually, I tihnk I said "plenty" but when I really think about it the only ones that come to mind are the "cold get dumb" line from that Madvillain Track...it's a very common line from one of the Dirt Style breaks and the "yoga"'s and shit are also off one of the D Style joints.

Shit...that really is all I can think of but I want to say I've heard some really common breaks get used in some of his tracks. Fuck, guess I can't back up what I'm sayin' here...but like I said I really don't care where people get their material from as long as they flip it right, which is probably why I can't remember any of the examples.

I mean what the fuck was that thes one dickhead blabbing about ? how many breaks in hip hop have been used over and over ? like if he's the 1st one to use a break that makes him proprietary of the thing or some shit. since I watched how he fooled the public in that battle with will I am (dj dusk's soundclash dvd) and reading about his extremist views on software usage in hip hop production and the mandatory use of only og vinyls and such and such I really dislike the guy.

I do like his beats but yeah, it's always annoying to hear people tell you the "right" way to make music.

What did you mean by fooled the public in the soundclash battle? I watched that way back...that was a good vs right there..take a holier than thou sample producer and pit him against Will.I.Am.

well will I am should have won that battle. his set was actually live (with keyboards and stuff) while thes one was playing preprogrammed samples off his mpc with little to no progressions. mostly loops

That battle was awkward for me to watch. Looked like Thes felt uncomfortable, or like he was taking it too seriously.

I enjoyed it, though. :P

I love P.U.T.S but there not very impressive as artists. Just catchy samples looped up with quant. drums. It's just fun hip-hop to chill out to..... not great or amazing, just good.
