Up for the sleepers. Top 2 song of 2012 right here, just didn't feel like making an "appreciation" thread that would've gotten like 3 replies...
Love Lupe but glad he didn't get a verse on this sh*t(He was supposed to be on it). That spoken word at the end >>

The new band practice series is dope too. Phone Calls and Floor Seats With Young >>

These Band Series EP is fire. I like Sky cause he is a true MC & artist...& stays original. Quietly, he had Album of the Year last year with very little homage paid.

Surprisingly a lot of Sky fans here said it was underwhelming & why I don't know, never got any specifics. I loved it though, bought my copy & everything...

I just put myself on to his music last summer. Album was complete, unique, beautifully crafted lyrically & well produced (besides the couple of tracks I don't care for)

It's tough to release an album on the same month as the most anticipated album of the year. (GKMC).

If y'all remember I had a Skyzoo - Where Do I Start thread a little while back. Y'all mentioned so many different projects that I didn't even get a definitive answer so I just picked what was suggested the most, this...


And this sh-t was DOPE. Only 1 track I wasn't really feeling like that but lyrically this dude is nice. Got a decent ear for beats too (some of them I labored through, the lyrics carried the track; same time though there's some nice samples on here) so yeah he's got a new fan in me.

Officially add me to the anticipators list for his next album. In the mean time Live From The Tape Deck is about to get a spin. I remember y'all sayin this was the better overall project. It's got a lot to live up to...

oh sh*t..

The production is every bit as crucial in shaping the masterpiece that is Below The Heavens, the landscape that exile painted was fu*kin amazing in my opinion, it really did sound like how the album cover looked if that makes any sense.

I won't even get into the subject matter or the form Blu was in on than album, cause I'm not here to force people to listen to what they don't, but if you just a regular a.ss working class person, that album is like explanation of sh*t you probably been/or will go through, but then again I'm bias its prob my favourite album ever.

Back to the topi at hand, Salvation most cohesive, The Great Debater is his straight complex rapping his a.ss off mixtape really, most of that sh*t I'm stil tryna understand in all honesty (although Sky fux with The Wire heavy, so the references from that are fu*king awesome).

My favourite project is still what first got me into Sky since I saw a pixelated version of the Way To Go video back on a late night underground hip hop show, Cloud 9 with 9th Wonder. He has gotten better as a rapper and artist since then though, but some of his highest points are on that album.

Stop Fooling Yourself >>>>>>>

To people who can;t get into him, his hooks can sometimes be repetitive as fu*k especially when coupled with a boring beat but his ear has definitely improved and expanded in terms of production.
 sheedawg said:
I see your point, I guess each to its own. Alot of peoples general I guess view when being critical of BTH is that th production is a bit generally the same, bar a few tracks which is guess it both IMO its strongest a.sset cause you cant listen to a few songs and get into it, its has to be listened from start to finish and then you start seeing how the mood shifts sonically and matches Blu's subject matter. But I can see why you would think it lack flair, it doesn't really have a huge track or the stereotypical 'banger', this is definitely headphone sorta music.

Cold Hearted being the perfect example.
Just re-listened. Since the last time I listened I've developed a tolerance for the boom bap style & while Exile's may not be the best I've heard (even after re-listening none of his beats really impressed me) I thoroughly enjoyed it a lot better this time than the last. Just figured I'd throw this out there...
