PostSubject: How are these albums now vol. 2   Sun 07 Mar 2010, 6:40 pm

Here's another group of albums from the last year or two that we've had time to properly judge. How are these albums doing with age:

Raekwon "OB4CL 2"-4.5...still bumps.

Almighty "Original Sin"-4.5...Still think this album deserves more credit than it gets. One of my fav's from 08

EMC "The Show"-3.75...ehhh, this one has kind of dropped for me. A good album but a tad overhyped.

Cormega "Born & Raised"-n/a...can't believe i still haven't heard this.

La Coka Nostra "A Brand you Can Trust"-4.0...Good album, nothing classic.

Ill Bill "Hour of Reprisal"-4.25...I need to be in a angry mood to listen to this, but when i throw it on it still does it for me.

Reks "Grey Hairs"-4.25...Still great, could have been a classic if he had cut about 6 tracks.

KRSOne/Buckshot "Survival Skills"-4.0...Actually, i need to revisit this one.

Quik/Kurupt "Blaqkout"-3.5...For me it's a dissapointment. Beats were dope for the most part.

Slaughterhouse "Self-titled"-4.25...Was my album of the year at one point. It's fell off a little, not much. Still love it.

Brother Ali "Truth is Here"-4.5...Actually like this better than "Us" and that's not a shot. I've got "Us at a 4.25.

Dela "Changes of Atmosphere"-4.25...A couple of tracks i don't care for but most of it is dope.

Tanya Morgan "Brooklynatti"-4.5...Was my album of the year til i heard "In The Ruff"

Elzhi "The Preface"-4.0...Another one that's dropped just a hair.

K-Rino "Blood Doctrine"-4.25...Had only heard "No Mercy" and it didn't blow me away at all. This album changed my mind.

Raekwon "OB4CL 2"- 3.75ish. I need to revisit, though

Almighty "Original Sin"- 4.5

EMC "The Show"-4.5, really like this one, still

Cormega "Born & Raised"- 4.75. Get It In is out of place on that album, change the way that track sounds, and it's 5 stars, IMO

La Coka Nostra "A Brand you Can Trust"- 4.25, still

Ill Bill "Hour of Reprisal"- 4.25ish

Reks "Grey Hairs"-4.5. I just listened to this the other day, still love it.

KRSOne/Buckshot "Survival Skills"- Still sits around 4 for me

Quik/Kurupt "Blaqkout"- 3.75ish

Slaughterhouse "Self-titled"- 4.5, still. My number 6 of last year

Brother Ali "Truth is Here"- N/A
Dela "Changes of Atmosphere"- N/A Sad

Tanya Morgan "Brooklynatti"- 4ish stars

Elzhi "The Preface"- Personal classic, to me, although "Colors" and "Hand's Up" are a little weak, IMO

K-Rino "Blood Doctrine"-5 stars to me

Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx 2 is still 4.5 stars for me, definitely the best album of 2009. Slaughterhouse is also 4.5 stars also. I'm "on the fence" about buying Cormega's album, and the EMC and KRS-One/Buckshot albums have not made their way into my collecton just yet.

Raekwon "OB4CL 2"-4.5 Still dope.

EMC "The Show"-3.5 just because but never really played it again.

Cormega "Born & Raised"-3.5, his weakest release to date.

La Coka Nostra "A Brand you Can Trust"-3.75, lost some replay value with me.

Ill Bill "Hour of Reprisal"-nice album just not my style.

Reks "Grey Hairs"-4.5-4.75 If it wasn't so long winded it would be classic. He should have made it about only 15-16 at the most deep.

KRSOne/Buckshot "Survival Skills"-3.75 Got betta with time.

Quik/Kurupt "Blaqkout"-3.5-3.75...For me it's a dissapointment. Beats were dope for the most part. (Agree)

Slaughterhouse "Self-titled"-4.5-4.75 The album of 2009 for me easily.

Brother Ali "Truth is Here"-4.5...Actually like this better than "Us" and that's not a shot. I've got "Us at a 4.25. (agree again)

K-Rino "Blood Doctrine"-4.25 I think this one is a tad overrated my some but its mos def a solid ass album.

Raekwon "OB4CL 2"- 4.25. still holding strong for me

EMC "The Show"-4.5, One of the best albums of 2008 IMO

Cormega "Born & Raised"- 3.5. Originally I had this at 4 but it's lost replay value.

La Coka Nostra "A Brand you Can Trust"- 4 stars, Ill Bill is dope as fuck.

Reks "Grey Hairs"-4.5. I slept on this car originally, after hearing Kev and Shaun big this guy up so much I decided to check him out, and he's dope as fuck.

KRSOne/Buckshot "Survival Skills"- 4.5. I like all but about 2 tracks on this album, fuck the haters

Quik/Kurupt "Blaqkout"- 3.5. Pretty disappointing given these guys' track records.

Slaughterhouse "Self-titled"- 3.75. Originally I had this at around 4-4.25 but it's lost quite a bit of replay value.

Tanya Morgan "Brooklynatti"- 4.25. I still spin this every now and then.

Elzhi "The Preface"- 4 stars.

K-Rino "Blood Doctrine"- 4 stars, good album but overrated by a lot of cats in this forum.

Raekwon "OB4CL 2"- 4.5, better than the first, still bump this one regularly. Kiss the Ring>>>

Almighty "Original Sin"-4.25...dope album, I should really bump it more than I do.

EMC "The Show"-3.5...decent album with a couple of bangers.

Cormega "Born & Raised"- 4...nothing special, but still a solid album.

La Coka Nostra "A Brand you Can Trust"-4.5...dope ass album, still bangs.

Ill Bill "Hour of Reprisal"- SMNUTS...still don't own.

Reks "Grey Hairs"-4.25...album was too long-winded, but had some really dope ass tracks.

KRSOne/Buckshot "Survival Skills"- 2.5...boring as hell saved for a few tracks. Not a hater, just being real.

Quik/Kurupt "Blaqkout"-3...hurts to say because I'm a big Quik fan, but this album didn't do anything at all. The West Coast version of "Survival Skills" in that it's a dud.

Slaughterhouse "Self-titled"-4.5...love this album, still do.

Brother Ali "Truth is Here"-4.25...fallen off a little, but still solid.

Dela "Changes of Atmosphere"-4.5...love this album. Mad chill.

Tanya Morgan "Brooklynatti"-4...overrated, but still solid.

Elzhi "The Preface"-4.5...Elzhi is a beast.

K-Rino "Blood Doctrine"-4.25...cool album, easily my favorite from him, but I still need to cop his new one.

That's got it as released today, but HHDX is only right 50% of the time. No one talks about new shit anymore really and I don't get into Reks like that so I was just throwing it out there. Nothing on google, really, either so it probably didn't come out today.

La Coka Nostra "A Brand you Can Trust"-n/a

Reks "Grey Hairs"-3.5 stars-a good album but not the banger that everyone says it is IMO

KRSOne/Buckshot "Survival Skills"-4.25..fell slightly but is still a very good album even if Kris wasn't his hungriest on it...still has decent beats and lyrics which is what hip-hop is supposed to be about anyway!

Quik/Kurupt "Blaqkout"-n/a

Slaughterhouse "Self-titled"-4 stars..a very good album..a bit overrated though IMO!
