    Just finishing listening to your mix, sorry about the delay... been so busy hence the lack of new threads.

    Anyways, your mix: Your best yet!!!!

    Love it, I like that you've mixed it up with other genres and Barry White came as a surprise haha but I always been a fan :tu

    Slum Village is always nice, the laid back tracks are nice too.

    Good to see ElZhi on there, you been to see him yet?

    J. Cole is coming on tour, you going? I was tempted to get a ticket.

    Thanks!!!

    The mix was reflective of what I was feeling musically at the time...

    I saw Elzhi perform LIVE on Nov. 19, 2010, so that was also a factor... the guy is terribly under appreciated

    Not a big fan of Cole... I can't seem to get into his music

    Yeah, those are definitely the best because they fit a certain mood, which helps with the flow. It's like that with all great mixes and albums. Guess that's why Budden's is obsessed with it.

    Nice, really envious of you for that too and totally agree.

    I haven't really given him the biggest of opportunities, but I like what I've heard so far... not on no Kendrick Lamar ish though. On a side note, don't know what to make of him and Dre?

    But I saw Drake live and thought that'd be terrible, but he did a good show minus the Lil Wayne shout outs.

    haha yeah definitely a great album I still was feeling the EP more though... but Overly Dedicated is his debut album. I just hope whatever path he chooses, it's one filled with music releases because he's too good to slip by the way side.

    Yeah, well, it's what they're reporting it as.... album reviews are all over the net with the name attached, but I've just done a search and some are calling it an EP too :/ I'm confused. I'm glad it's not his debut if so though, because whilst it's a great album/EP, I think he can do even better going off of the Kendrick Lamar EP (which I'm listening to now!)

    *edit* this seems to confirm it:
    The new West does it again. This was originally supposed to be an album and was given out free as an EP. Kicking out $9.99. [or $5.99 like it is now on iTunes] for this wouldn’t have been a waste. A solid jump into the mainstream, indie conversation.

    So supposed to be an album, but released as an EP. Either way, it's great... whatever it is lol.

    Make a thread! :tu

    I'll check it out next week, been trying to cop Kanye's album all week but they've not had it in the store by me... SMH. Going HMV in the morning before I drive to the east coast, should be a good album for the trip! Hoping not to get stuck in snow though :/
