3 Dec 2008, 20:42 by PsychoBellsAnyone who can fill in the hard-as-hell to understand parts or make any corrections definitely hit me up and let me know. Gen & Memph are the two illest emcees of all time as you should know, and in addition their songs are by far the funnest and most challenging to rap. I figured that since there weren't lyrics for any of their songs besides Anarchist Cookbook and I love rapping along because the words they choose always sound so awesome fused together that I would transcribe the rest. Check it.

Check this shit out...
Yo, yo, uh
Eight zero billion galaxies balancing malice and chaos,
These men summon the words seance,
To stay lost amidst the bass hits and spitfire snare drum kicks,
No dumb shit, my blood run thick for the river,
Filtering words like liquor surge through my liver,
Who's the riddler? Who to believe?
With ease we weave magic, maniac manic beat addicts dramatic, no static
Samurai, megaton, with force equivalent to atom bombs,
2 Feb 2007, 20:05 by the_pauloi've been getting back into Jazz...
- John Coltrane is amazing. A Love Supreme and Sun Ship are just perfect examples of good avant garde jazz.
- Charles Mingus was another jazz great. playing bass and piano, really good stuff.
- Pharoah Sanders, Duke Ellington and the great Miles Davis are also fantastic to listen to.
also been getting into some new Hip Hop (well, new to me anyway!)...
- Wordburglar is amazing! really really fun and his new album 'Burglaritus' is funny as hell!
- Genelec & Memphis Reigns are also wicked. excellent emcee's and the beats come across like RZA mixed with DJ Dust from Mars Ill's beats. really good stuff.
- Brother Ali's new album is nothing short of genius. can't wait to get my hands on that shit!
- Busdriver. not so much his solo stuff (haven't properly listened to it yet) but the Live Airplane Food album he did with Daedelus is shit hot. mixing jazz and hip hop. what more could i want!
