Tonight I shall play Madvillainy in your honour. :=)

I see what you mean----it's the best of the lot! Love what MFD does with samples.

I didn't realize he was born in London...

Madvillainy was actually produced by Madlib, one of the great hip-hop producers. It is a collaboration between him and MF. You can hear Madlib rapping as his high-pitched alter-ego Quasimoto in America's Most Blunted and Shadows of Tomorrow.

You're not a true rap fan if you don't have "Breakin' Atoms" in your collection from Main Source

I'm not a true rap fan. Grin

I know Ovi looks in from time to time. I wonder what he'd make of this? It's an unholy marriage of the voice and guitar of the remarkable Jandek and the beats of MF DOOM:

Fresh Kid Ice (aka The Chinaman) of 2 Live Crew died last Thursday, aged 53.

Their big hit, "Me So Horny", caused no end of a ruckus in 1989. I remember it well. I thought it had, well, balls...

This is the clean version, as the dirty version is pretty dirty! LOL

Ha! After taking a long break from MF Doom, I discovered a full-album YouTube vid of Madvillainy. Grin

Great stuff so far! I was bowled over to hear a snatch of "Sleeping In A Jar" from the Mothers' double album Uncle Meat (starts at 3:47)...

I'm not much of a rap fan, Muggins (ask Ovi). Once the words become more important than the music I'm out of there. It's not just rap----protest songs may be well meant but they're lost on me...

There are exceptions, of course----there always are. Ovi has kindly opened up the world of MF Doom to me. The Doom album that appeals to me the most is Take me to Your Leader, where he assumes the guise of the three-headed King Geedorah. Wonderfully wacky stuff:

I know rapmeister Ovi snorts at the mere mention of Macklemore, but I'll take the risk, lol...

This is for Rick, who, um, left the fold today. If his behaviour wasn't just an utterly over-the-top
cri de coeur and he really believes what he said, perhaps he should listen to this:

I took a listen to the few tracks from Kanye West's debut album available to me on YouTube and these two stood out:

"Through The Wire" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jr_5yTNvIt4)

"Slow Jamz" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HanMCyypC68)

Really like the use of samples here. Oh, and belated happy birthday, Ovi. :=)

Thanks man. Really glad you dug it. I view Kanye as the single most important artist of the 21st century, and quite a genius in what he does. It seemed like every new album he did shifted the course of popular music. I love the high-pitched soul samples on The College Dropout, the whole album has such an inviting, warm character. Naturally, everybody started doing that after and he's never returned to it.

A band called The Beach Boys are mostly going to be a fun in the sun-themed group. And that has, is, and will always be just as it should. There needs to be ONE classic band that isn't a pack of endless "artistic" moan. All people wanna do is make The Beach Boys into another Beatles they are less tired of.
And, for anyone who has actually experienced them, surfing and cars carry PLENTY of emotion and life experience. They can carry as much metaphor as any Van Dyke Parks clever epistle.

John (and others), I remember you really liked the video I posted a while ago with the rhyme analysis of some great rappers. Here's some more regarding MF DOOM:

An line-by-line breakdown of Madvillain's Accordion that shows how much depth there really is inside every single DOOM bar. Maybe the video is too long, but even a few minutes can send your mind to a truly heavy trip, in the same way analyzing Dylan's lyrics does. It's a huge inspiration for me as an aspiring writer and a person interested in language.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j3v5iqAWvvw&

On a lighter note, here's rapper Mos Def reciting DOOM lyrics and stopping every few bars just to laugh at how ridiculously cool/smart/funny they are. This is another one of my favorite videos, for it shows a famous artist acknowledging and being passionate about another one and often there's no higher praise. It's like when Keith Richards talks about Chuck Berry and you realize how much it means to him.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zTBIvIDnnv8

Highlight: When he gets to the 3rd verse of Beef Rapp and you realize along with him how funny DOOM's put-downs of mainstream rappers really are:

What up?
To all rappers: shut up with your shutting up
And keep your shirt on, at least a button-up
Yuck, is they rhymers or strippin' males?
Out of work jerks since they shut down Chippendales

Two cool vids there, Ovi. I gave the breakdown of Accordion about six minutes, which was enough to discover just how dense DOOM's rhyming is--
--not one wasted syllable. And the Mos Def video is hilarious! Wow, a true fan---he keeps shaking his head in wonder. 

Thanks a lot for those!

I've lined up Mad Villainy again for early morning & late night listening.

After DOOM's brilliant epic album it's "drunk in the club" time again, haha (sorry, Ovi). "10,000 Hours" is most unusual in that it starts very upbeat and bright with some great synth lines but ends in the dark ("welcome to the heist"). I don't think you can say that about many songs...
