Man, I've had the promo for a couple weeks, and I gotta say (no disrespect to Dilla, I'm not sure how much creative contol he had over this) This album's pretty weak, Beats, all incredible obviously. Cause I'm a big Dilla fan just like everyone here, but what's up with the half assed rhyming all over it??? Man. That song "Red Light" by J. Davey? one of the most killer beats I've heard from Dilla. I've been riding to that beat for like a year and a half off a beat tape. This chick sounds so weak over it, why couldn't it go to Guilty or Phat Kat? Man they would have killed this one. The wack ass singing on "Sun In My Face", "Say It" is pretty good, I love the beat from way back, but Ta'Raach doesn't add much to it, he's kind of just there.

Anyone heard this album yet? Thoughts?

got it and i agree with what you are saying about that rhyming. the beats are tight as usual especially "can't you see" and " in the streets" which are only instumentals anyway. maybe he just wanted to give some other mc's a chance to shine. by the way, that girl is awful but she sounds hot. since it's such an early promo the actual release will be different. still love most of it though and i will love anything dilla puts out.

Sadly, I agree with what has been posted here, but I wonder - what makes you think the official release will be different? it'd be nice if it was, but I'm wondering if you have some inside info, or just kinda guessing..

meanwhile, I hope the continue putting stuff out - mcs just over beattape beats. I'd buy MED, Guilty, F n D etc over those beats whenever they came out.. I'm sure many would.

actauly j davey does her thing on that and phat cat does have a joint to that same beat...of course phat cat destroys that beat, but has he ever been whack?

I haven't heard the rest (I don't download bootlegs)
But Ta'Raach killed "Say It" - LOL @ "he was just there"

for anyone who hasn't heard it - check http://www.myspace.com/taraach

and i haven't heard the track with Blu yet, but he always comes with it
so i'm sure he repped that beat properly as well
