“We want that to be all the way right. It’s something that we planned from the jump, solidify each individual artist and then we’ll come with the boom. I’m not saying when. Just be ready and lookout for Ab-Soul right now. That’ll be the last puzzle to that Black Hippy thing coming.” - Kendrick Lamar

What y'all think about these albums?

    Man, if Kendrick's and Schoolboy's Interscope releases do decent numbers, we can demand it. Ab just had their second biggest opening week since Section 80. They can cultivate the attention, then it will be huge.

    yeah i see q and kendrick as the most commercially viable. soul is the least. all are dope. just copped Follow Me Home and its got some joints

    Yea, that is public perception, but Control System sold more than any of Q's efforts opening week, so there is viability there without doubt. I really wish they would put out a record with Just Blaze.

    damn, that would be tuff. how much did control system sell? i only say Q is more viable because his music seems easier to crossover. he even gets radio play out on NY radios.

    Numbers don't really matter outside of viability. Control System did 5,300 first week which is bigger than Follow Me Home or Setbacks or Habits And Contradictions.People like to feel like they are apart of a movement. They buy all the albums to support regardless if they actually like the artists. Some people do remain as fans too. He's getting radio play due to A$AP Rocky and that beat is just crazy.

    I think kendrick is clearly the best and jay rock is clearly the worst. Ab is better than Q imo but I see how people could say otherwise since they both go hard. Either way they're making the best music in the game right now. When they rap together the shit is just even better because they all shine despite the fact they all have different styles.

    They had a feature on NPR radio yesterday. Shocked the hell outta me.

    Jay Rock is cool when he's not on that Blood tip. Kendrick has an early Lupe Fiasco aura about himself. Top 10 potential.

    was Jay Rock suppose to be the fore front? he's been out longer than the rest of these guys...

    Seems like a decent group... Like just one of those groups with no lead man, they just do dope shit collectively

    and as individuals... we just gotta wait and see what happens
  • andre_1024andre_1024 Posts: 2,413 ✭✭✭✭✭
    yea it's kinda interesting to see how Jay Rock has become the weakest member (between him and Q imo) in Black Hippy, especially since he was the main guy out the gate and was really buzzin back in 08 or so..he's still dope tho and Follow Me Home was a very solid debut..

    Still haven't heard Jay Rock's album but the singles he dropped for it were hard. All the other albums was fire tho. I fucks wit these niggas heavy

    Kendrick = Ab-Soul >>>Schoolboy > Jay Rock

    Black Hippy >>>>>>>>>> Slaughterhouse no question

    Jay Rock is cool when he's not on that Blood tip. Kendrick has an early Lupe Fiasco aura about himself. Top 10 potential.

    Never seen Jay Rock really push that while doing interviews, you wouldn't know that.

    The first artist when Dude Dawg decided to form TDE and he had a major record deal right away. Black Hippy did not become an official group until Q got there years later.

    Why would you think that? Soul and Kendrick helped Schoolboy when he came in. Ab went to high school with Dude Dawg's son, just like I did. I actually went to middle school with Dude Dawg's son and his baby mama was close friends with Alori Joh (RIP), they actually grew up together.That did not put him on though, him knowing Sounwave got him in the door. He was the guy at Street Beat and was affiliated with Top Dawg. I remember when he told me he left Street Beat and was going to be in Top Dawg.They were pushing Jay Rock heavy at the time and K Dot was getting attention too. They had another rapper named BO, so Ab was the 4th guy. BO either left or got kicked out the camp (not sure, never asked) and Ab became a more prominent member. This was around No Sleep Til NYC. You listen to it , there is Jay Rock and K Dot. It was their mixtape and Ab-Soul,BO, and Punch had features. After that dropped BO was no longer around and was with Lil Scrappy actually.Schoolboy Q came around after all of that bro.

    When this came out, I thought it was the end for BO.
