    always heard of them by word of mouth,
    but never actually listened to any albums.

    12oz opened my mind to them

    Altough i enjoyed this it pisses me off that he sais aiight all the fuckin time.
    It probably has to with me not living in america so any use of that kind of language has a reference into gang movies or ali-g...both really sabotaging the fact that dude totally gives a verbal kickass to the cop.

    i personally don't see what's so great about the dude..
    i dled a shitload of his stuff awhile ago, and musically
    it was IMO pretty flat and boring. without good music
    it's hard to care for what the lyrics are sayin', which
    apparently is his best asset.

    i like the fact that the dude is conscious.

    that alone makes it head and shoulders above a lot of music for me.

    yeah and if you listen to all or most music played on radio it is specifically anti-conscious.


    therefore mister technique says in his music that due to his political consciousness he cant sell a million records or get onto some massive corporate label who wants to change his entire idea..

    i'm actually seeing him tonight at the Knitting Factory, as well as a bunch of other artists.

    basically, the way i see his music is this... his beats are mediocre at best, and his rhyme structure is very basic, but the guy has stuff to say, which is more than can be said for many 'artists.' also, i think has the potential to get a record deal if he dumbs down his material, but he hasn't (yet, at least)... and i respect him for that. unlike fucking Copywrite, who had lines like "i don't wanna be mainstream, i wanna piss in it"... then gets signed to Roc-a-fella and becomes Mr. Anti-Underground, disrespecting everyone he used to be cool with just for some money...

    I'm with you 100%. I can't get into the guy... and when I can listen to what he says, it's no different than, say, what Mr. Lif says when gets political, which in turn, sounds to me like someone rapping off the whatreallyhappened.com site.

    *As for that clip... best part was when the cop says "Sir, get into the FUCKING vehicle". I almost cheered, sorry if that makes me an asshole.

    Uhm, maybe it's just me - but that clip was staged, right? I mean, it's not real in the sense that it was filmed live with a real cop. So I don't see what's so cool.

    Fuck super intircate rhymes if you handle your simple style well - same rule for graffiti. I had a friend play the 4th branch song for me a year ago and after that it was over:

    "This is the information that they hold back from Peter Jennings 'cause Condollesa Rice is just a new age Sally Hemmings"

    ...Intricate rhymes are only complex because they are vague and speak on more generalized issues. If you have a specific point to make why beat around the bush? Do you have an ideal example you want to present?
