1 Sep 2012, 3:42 de heyadamoA few days late, but I gather breaths were not being held.
TOTAL SCROBBLES = 130,981 (up the typical 20,000 or so -- FYI my scrobbles take up 2,620 pages front to back. If my scrobbled exploits were committed to paper, that would be a good hunk of a tree. *reflects* Wow. That's sorta depressing.)
TOTAL ARTISTS = 3,966 (again, right around 600 new artists join the fold this year, as per what seems to be the average. Say what they will about the moribund state of the music biz, bands are still forming, folks are still singing... and I continue to find ways to listen to 'em. BTW that is 221 pages worth of artists -- which after I think about it could be a LOT more if I don't insist on retyping in certain albums to in the artist field instead of with , and on random tracks. I'm not 100% thorough or consistent with it, but shaving the artist stat to simply the person whom album I chose to listen to is more fair to their total number of scrobbles.)
FRIENDS = 49. Also a really underrated album by the Beach Boys.

I don’t get the chance to make it back to New York nearly as much as I’d like to. If you’re in the NY area, try to make it to one of the True School Park Jams.

#10 Main Source - Breaking Atoms
I fought with myself to slide "Madvillainy" or "Black On Both Sides" into this number 10 spot. But as much as I love the both of those I guess I'm just a sucker for the classic 90's sound found on this album and the nine that follow it. Kicking the list off is this classic from one of my personal favourite beat-makers, Large Professor. He just has a way with what he does that is just classic. The highlight for me being "Vamos A Rapair", with it's funky ass beat. Whenever I pull this one out I have vivid memories of watching through The Wire for the first time. Must have been a couple of nights there where I was marathoning through Season 4, listening to this each night beforehand and getting in the mood to watch that bad motherfucker Marlo and those poor kids' struggles haha. Having said that, the album isn't faultless by any stretch. …

7 Ene 2012, 8:48 de Blue_KeyThis isn't a ranking of the statistical best producers in rap history. These are MY personal favorite 10. Producers like Marley Marl, Rick Rubin, The Bomb Squad, Timbaland are definitely in the top 10 producers ever as fact. But I have other producers that swerve in my lane of taste more so then the aforementioned sound masters. The order 1 through 10 is in personal favorite ranking. GO LARGE PRO! (*P.S. maybe I'll one day do a journal on the statistical best producers in Hip-Hop. Yeah, Dre's king. Drop Detox man, you can keep working out building up your chest like fifty cent used to look but make the album already).
