#1 reason why hip hop sucks in '06

Artists like DJ Shadow...

another hero goes under.

kudos to cut chemist for his innovative album. i was worried about his solo on a major, considering z-trip went sour on his first big adventure.

is it radio play or what?

i think its safe to say Shadow surprised everyone. I read interviews where he said he was fine w/ loosing fans on this album in return for new ones. but i think Talib Kweli is the best example that if you're gonna cross over you gotta have the right sound. Kweli lost a lot of respect in the underground relm and barely broke the surface on the radio. Fact of the matter is, is the radio wasn't and still isn't looking for an artist like Kweli, just like they're not gonna be dropping more than one single off of this shadow shit. :(

WOW....interesting, saying shadow is one of the reasons why hip hop sucks in 06 ? maybe you need to open your ears and you mind.

Sorry but your far off the mark, hip hop is dope in 06.

Shadow had an amazing cut on ENTRODUCING called "why hip hop sucks in 96" those who know his music would understand why i used this phrase 10 years later as a subject header.

Let me start by saying I don't think hip hop sucks now, nor did i think hip hop sucked in 96, shit 96 was one of my favorite years in hip hop. hip hop is still my foundation and though our sets include more than hip hop (if any) the dj community knows what paved the way for us to be spinning records in the first place.

I wrote the original post after i heard the album, upset yes, still upset? Nah i'm over it. just wanted to see if anyone felt the loss of another great musician. My neighbor and I used to argue about the dopest producer period. he gave me speeches about Shadows epic albums and I argued back about how Madlib puts out several classics a year. Well, my neighbor has finally given that argument up. Peace to Shadow for what he's given us in the past and how he paved the way for instrumental hip hop to be more of a journey rather than just another dope beat. Premptive Strike, Entroducing, Private Press, Product Placement, and his segments on the SCRATCH movie will always be in rotation and the hope for progression will always exist.

long live hip hop. big ups to Stones Throw for keeping it alive.

i love that album and he says it was made on the original mpc 60, but some tracks i heard on the new album just not feeling it. i think the whole hyphy movement made it difficult.
