    That New Jay!!! BLACK ALBUM REVIEW

    Discussion started by Milton - Nov 14, 2003

    I just got it cause I convinced the idiot at Fred Meyer that it actually got released today. "Oh ya, I heard it on the radio, and I'm sure they're selling it at Circuit City already."

    So this is in the Reasonable Doubt territory if not better. Maybe its just the hype, but the whole thing is FIRE. I'm saying the hottest mainstream hip-hop/rap album of the last 5 years at least, period.

    Here goes the quotable shit song by song:

    December 4th:
    "I went to school got good grades good behaved when I wanted/ But I had demons deep inside that were raised when confronted..."

    "Momma couldn't beat me hard enough to match the pain of my pop not seein me."

    What More Can I Say:
    "They don't paint pictures they just trace me."

    "I'm not a biter I'm a writer for myself and others/ I say a BIG verse I'm just big uppin my brother."

    "Far from a Harvard student just had the balls to do it"

    "God forgive me for my brash delivery/But I remember vividly what these streets did to me"

    Encore:
    "Soon you gonna see that you can't replace him with cheap immitations for these generations."

    "From Marcy to Madison square, the only difference is a matter of years."

    "You want in the game attention new dudes, I could get you BET and TRL too, you want in the public send ya budget, but fuck it, I ain't budgin'"

    "Record companies told me I couldn't cut it, now look at me all star studded, God Father above par like I putted."

    Change Clothes and Go(It's the one to sell records):
    "I am to the East Coast what Snoop is to the West Coast what Face is to Huston"

    Dirt Off Your Shoulder:
    "All the rappers be hatin of the trap I be makin/ but the hustlers love to see one of us that made it"

    Threat:
    " Now its a duet, you wet when you check out the technique from the two techs"

    "You looking at the black Warren Buffett so all you critics can duck sick"

    "We rat pack ni**as let Sam tap dance on you, then I Sinatra shot ya God damn you."

    "You wish I was frontin, I George Bush the button for the oil in your car, lift up ya hood then run it, then lift up your whole hood like there was oil under it."

    "You ain't gotta go to church you'll get to know your God"

    Moment of Clarity:
    "Pop died, didn't cry, didn't know him that well, from him doin heroin and me doin crack sales."

    "I probably be lyrically Talib Kweli, truthfully I wanna rhyme like Common Sense, but I did five mil, and ain't been rhymin like Common since."

    99 Problems:

    The whole part with him talking about the cop is hot.
    "Aren't you sharp as a tack, you some typa Lawyer or something, somebody important or something?
    I ain't passed the bar but I know a little bit, enough that you won't illegally search my shit."

    "Not a ho in the sense of having a pussy, but a pussy havin no goddamn sense tryna push me."

    "You know the type loud as a motor bike but wouldn't bust a grape in a fruit fight."

    "There I go trapped in the Kit-Kat again, back through the system with the riff raff again."

    Interlude:
    "My name is Hove, H to the O V, I used to move snowflake by the O Z"

    "Flyer than the piece of paper bearing my name."

    "Let me tell you dudes what I'll do to protect this, I'll shoot at you actors like movie directors."

    "I never claimed to have wings on, I get my by any means on whenever there's a drought, get your umbrellas out cause thats when I brainstorm."

    Justify My Thug:
    (With a fuckin MADONNA sample.)
    "I never asked for nothin I ain't demand in myself, honesty, loyalty, friends and then wealth."

    "Foolish pride was what held me together through the years I wasn't felt, which is why I never played myself."

    "Don't be actin like you can't see street action."

    "I put my faith in a tech, tell satan not yet."

    "When you've been wrong all along and you know it's just one life at what point does one fight?"

    "For you not to bark try and put ya dogs in his 10 and a halfs for a minute and a half, I bet that stops all the grinnin and the laughs."

    Lucifer (This beat is sooo fucking hot right here):
    "Lord forgive him he got those dark forces in him, but he also got a righteous cause for sinnin."

    "Jesus, I ain't tryin to be facicious, but vengance is mine said the Lord, he said it better than all."

    "I can introduce you to ya maker, bring you closer to nature, ashes after they cremate you bastards, hope you've been reading your Psalms and Chapters, paying your tithes being good Catholics."

    "The more you talk the more you urkin us, the more you gonna need memorial services."

    "The Black Album second verse is like devil's pie, save some dessert for us."

    Allure:
    "I put my feet in the footprints left to me without saying a word, the ghettos got mental telepathy."

    "I know how this movie ends but I still play, a leading role in Hovito's way."

    "I'm like a Russian Mobsta drinkin distilled vodka, till I'm under the field with Hoffa."

    "Hill top I'm like a toupee, mix the water with the soda turn the pot up make a soufle, all yall can get it like group page in ya two way, I'm living proof that crime do pay. Say hooray to the bad guy and all the broads."

    "Blink twice I'm in the blueberry five, blink three times I might not even be alive."

    My 1st Song (You gotta hear the flow on this one):

    "When I born it was sworn I was never gon' be shit, had to do the opposite, out this bitch, had to get my plot on."

    "This is my second major break up, my first was with a page up a hoopty a cook pot in the game."

    WHOA.

    So add shit to this, tell me I'm a wack mainstream lover and the only real rap is in the underground, whatever, just let me know...

    Breathe Easy...

    Pac was the most prolific ever, but as far as talent goes Jay is close, really close.

    If you compare Pac's shit at his prime with Jays shit on R. Doubt, or right now its close.

    Is it true that the album in the stores is quite different from the one floating on the internet? Regardless, this album is amazing. I particularly like 99 Problems, but every song is good. Wicked production on most songs, too.
