    alright heres my review.....excuse the length of it but im sure u took time to make the mix so the least i could do was take time for a a review i split the review into two parts since most of the songs i am familiar with i gave my thoughts on each individual song then the cd as a whole

    Ahh well, doesn't look like my thread is going to be approved anytime soon. Here's my mix:

    RuffDraftPresentsSinceWeLastSpoke.jpg

    Ruff Draft Presents... Since We Last Spoke

    Tracklist:

    1. Since We Last Spoke - RJD2
    not much to be said...sets the tempo for the cd and what man in his right mind doesn't like rjd2


    2. Greenland - Emancipator

    another dope instrumental almost sounds like music from one of my favorite games ever chrono cross....one of the few songs i have not heard...now i have a new artist in my playlist

    3. Resurrect Me - Braille

    believe it or not braille is actually a christian rapper....a dope one at that, it took me awhile to get used to his voice but once you do your happy u didnt write him off because of it...this song is VERY heartfelt and i actually hadnt heard it before(very rare for that to happen lol) this song WILL become one of my favorites

    4. Breath - Grouch

    the grouch....best member of living legends imo....that cd show you the world was dope.....this song itself is actually tied for my favorite song on the cd and actually this is probaly my favorite grouch song.."but keeping up with the neighbors wont save ya im deep enough to know myself now thats major/and im proud of me/no male figure to teach me how to be/oh well/to eager to reach outerly/i shouldve known if all was good at home i wouldnt have grown"....hell the whole song is a quotable glad to see the grouch is being heard

    5. All I Want in This World - Cradle Orchestra Featuring CL Smooth

    Im a sucker for live orchestras what can i say lol ive had this cd for a while and while it was not my favorite track it was in the top 3

    6. Father - Fashawn

    heard rave reviews but never gave him a listen...until now fits in perfect with the mix but not too sure if i would listyen to a whole cd of him...but will give boy meets world a try


    7. Us - Brother Ali Featuring Stokley Williams

    hands down my favorite albino rapper lol good choice of song

    8. Still Love - Soulstice

    just got into soulstice not too long ago defintly gonna have to check this japan release out

    9. Meridian Sound (Part One) - Lushlife

    cassette city ftw didnt know anybody knew about lushlife


    10. Ghostwriter - RJD2

    rjd2....nuff said

    11. I Rock - Open Mike Eagle

    never heard of him before he sounds like he coulve been on a def jux release....translation im gettin the cd asap lol

    12. Slums - The Reavers

    underrated cd not much to say except i love the song


    13. Summertime Running - Mos Dub (Mos Def produced by Max Tannone)

    cant believe i didnt know this existed...well i do now and its in heavy rotation


    14. On Melancholy Hill - Gorillaz
    im 50/50 on the gorillaz kinda got to be in a happy mood to listen to em...i mustve been happy cuz all 4 times i seemed to like it

    15. Cold War - Janelle Monae

    when i first saw the tracklist i wonderd how she got in there....i listened to how well it flowed with the mix and answered my own question


    16. Learning How To Fall - Grieves

    decent song

    17. Sunday Money - Custom Made

    hmmm never heard of him before i liked the song so i will check him out


    18. Warm Up - All Natural

    females cant rap?....yea jus check this track out n watch that opinion change(she reminds me of apani)

    19. Life's A Bitch - Fashawn & DJ Green Lantern

    imma have to be honest here.....hated the song...not that its not a good song but i hate when artist do this type of thing(reks,joel ortiz)

    20. Black Sands - Bonobo
    perfect way to end a dope mix


    Hope you enjoy it. Post Feedback here if you like, as it doesn't seem to me that I can make threads...

    overall....i dont think i have to tell u how dope the mix was....kinda got me scared to post mine cuz it might pale in comparision lol

    i listend to it 4 times(workin on computers for a livin u find ALOT of free time)...i pick up on little things some may have even been unintentional but genius none the less.....for instance how u went from brailles song resurrect me which is a somber song talking about bring me back to life then the next song is the grouch breath which literally feels like a breath of fresh air kinda in the sense that u are being brought back to life or awakening

    the addition of janelle monae was perfect u guessed right...fans of good music are fans of good music plain in simple

    props on the mix

    lol man, thanks a lot for the detailed comments, was an interesting read.

    Nahhh, post it up!! Sure it will be great, I can't wait for it, I need to hear some new music.

    LOL I can't believe you picked up on that, that was intentional, funny. I spend a lot of time putting the tracks into a tracklist and that same comparison clicked when I was putting it together. I find some mixes in-cohesive, which is a shame, but at the same time, not many people have the time to do it and it's more so something that I enjoy doing (I find it an escape from work). It's all the more worthwhile when people pick up on it, so I'm glad you did. Same goes with Janelle Monae, it keeps the mood carrying over. I had to take two Rhymefest tracks out of the mix because I couldn't find a fit for them. I also placed the Cradle Orchestra track next to Fashawn's as the kid on Cradle Orchestra's song finishes the track singing acapella, which then goes into a song about a father... the kid was symbolic of Fashawn. But I'm just a huge nerd.

    I'm really happy that you found some new artists, I know you're up on your underground hip hop, figured there might be a few I could recommend to you. Good to hear that you're into Lushlife too, their CD is so well produced.

    I couldn't decide on a track to put out from his mixtape (Fashawn), but I thought it was well done considering what beat he's going over. Please don't let this affect your judgement, Boy Meets World is one of my favourite CD's of last year, pretty much my favourite and I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

    Looking forward to your mix!!

    Nice pick, Fashawn's album is very, very good IMO, but I'd definitely just let your ears do the listening and just try to experience it from a fresh point of view.

    I'm relatively new here but yeah...I stumbled on this site hoping to find other like minded HipHop fans. But this site is lacking in balance and it mostly seems like another payola site pandering to the mainstream.

    I love Atmosphere. I hear Slug had a new baby so he has taken some time off. The new Brother Ali is dope. It's a classic in my opinion. Same with the new POS. Haven't been feeling Cage but I dig that he experiments. Sad to hear about Def Jux. I've been listening to ILLUS a lot. His new album with JJ Brown is dope, Feel Good Music. Trying to give him some shine. The new Fashawn is also dope and I am loving anything from Blu.

    You should def check Illus and also look out for godAwful. His new one on Bandcamp is siiiiick.
