As I give my creaking knuckles calisthenics, I’m reminded of how great 2013 was for music. There were a lot of great releases, and I think that a few of my selections might shock a few people this year, but it’s necessary to give credit where it’s due. Leave your comments in the C-Section below, and let me know how you feel.

Kanye & Pusha T Bring That “New God Flow”

Posted in Audio, Media with tags , , , on Tuesday, July 3, 2012 by Tim Althaus

Well, isn’t this interesting? As many people know, I haven’t been a huge fan of Kanye’s music in the past few years. I actually submitted an opinion editorial about him to the local newspaper a few years back, and although it didn’t get published, I still felt good about it. Don’t get me wrong, I really like College Dropout and Late Resgistration, but I really don’t like any of the material that he’s put out since Graduation. I was on Facebook yesterday, and this track popped up a few times, so I figured I would humor myself and check it out; I’m really glad that I gave it a chance.

This song is truly unbelievable, and it makes me want to see a full-length project between these two. I haven’t been too keen on Mr.West’s flow as of late, but this is the hungriest he has sounded in a while, and it takes me back to the College Dropout days:

“Hold up, I ain’t tryin’ to stunt man/but the Yeezys jumped over the Jumpman/went from the most hated to the champion god flow/I guess that’s a feelin’ only me and Lebron know”

Pusha T also has some subliminal words for person(s) remaining nameless:

“Step on they necks til’ they can’t breathe/claim they five stars but sell you dreams/they say death multiplies by threes/line them all up and let’s just see/Fuck em’ Ye/Fuck em’ Ye/ I wouldn’t piss on that ni**a with Grand Marnier/their shit is shoppin’ at Tarjay (Target)/my shit is luxury gourmet”

This is the type of track that I love to hear Kanye on, and if this is what I can come to expect for the future, then I will be definitely keeping closer tabs on his music. Don’t sleep on this one.

Wild Style Wednesday Review: Clipse, Lord Willin’

Posted in Music Reviews, Wildstyle Wednesdays with tags , , , , , , on Wednesday, July 15, 2009 by Tim Althaus

lordwillin This album was my first introduction (as well as most other people) to the Brothers Thornton. I remember being in 10th grade riding around in my buddy Copus’s car listening to this album damn near every day. Since the album Lord Willin’, Clipse has been a duo known for their wicked, witty verses and sick ass Neptunes beats. To me it was really funny when they dropped Hell Hath No Fury because it seemed to me that nobody mentioned Lord Willin’. It was almost as if Lord Willin’ never even existed. In my opinion you couldn’t have put out a better label debut than Lord Willin’, this album is stacked with addictive top-notch beats and over the top lyricism filled with more metaphors and allusions about cocaine than you can imagine. Malice & Pusha are so good that they make cocaine sound interesting. Continue reading

Album Review: Alchemist, Chemical Warfare

Posted in Music Reviews with tags , , , , , , , , , , on Thursday, July 9, 2009 by Tim Althaus

Chemical WarfareFor the last decade (and then some), Alchemist has been making some of the best beats in Hip-Hop. Much like his last album 1st Infantry he enlists a near all-star cast of some of the best cats in the game to help him bring you some real Hip-Hop. Another thing that you may notice is that ALC’s beats are just as deviously deadly as ever before. He sounds like he has been more at home with the MPC than ever, and Al’s chemistry seems like it should be in a text book it’s so good. Continue reading

This is making me fiend for these guys album like the hard tan that they used to bake in the kitchen. According to the video interview, the new album is going to sound a lot like Lord Willin’ which is a great thing to me, because I think it was better than Hell Hath No Fury. It sounds like we are in store for a great album from the Thornton Brothers here real soon, stay posted for more news.

Apparently Clipse aren’t bullshittin’…

Posted in Music News with tags , , on Tuesday, April 28, 2009 by Tim Althaus

brothers-thortonMalice & Pusha T aren’t kidding when they talk about birds, pies, or any coke reference for that matter. Apparently the ex-manager for Clipse has been indicted on charges of leading a $10 million drug ring. According to the article at HipHop DX, Anthony Gonzalez has been running the drug ring mostly out of his club Encore Lounge in Virginia.

The article goes on to say that Gonzalez has pushed over a ton of marijuana and one hundred pounds of cocaine since 2003. Even though his operation is out of Virginia, his operation has supposedly reached as far as South America. The indictment on the individuals involved claims that,  “the people that were involved put themselves in the position of music producers, rappers, entrepreneurs, club owners, clothing designers and other legitimate occupations to conceal their real identity”.

Gonzalez was the manager for the Brothers Thornton up until 2006. Clipse has still not publicly commented on the issue. They are currently managed by Steven Victor.
