However, you never know what they’ll cook up if they work together. Maybe having a creative force like Spitta in the studio with Wiz will bring out the old Khalifa. And, if it’s a mixtape, the wants and wishes of a major studio might also be absent.
I think we all need to chill for a bit about Wiz for a second. Only reason people pine for the “old” Wiz is because he hasn’t been able to match the two year run from 2008-2010. Yeah, Rolling Papers was pretty whack, but he also released Cabin Fever months before. Let’s see what his next mixtape looks like before we jump to any more conclusions.
I know you’re in that “old Wiz” camp. And it’s not so much the “run” he had because he had some good mixtapes before that as well. But it’s a pine for a sound that wasn’t “Roll Up” or such a blatant appeal to a completely casual listening audience.
He’s successful and no one can hate on him for that. However, from a (for lack of a better word) “traditionalist”‘s point of view, it’d be nice to see something that mirrored that How High tape or those Prince of the City tapes. Or even Cabin Fever, but that project was an anomaly.
ever since WTT (and was very succesful) dropped artists have been promising duo albums with their homies (I think T.I. even promised two) but I am holding very little faith in any of them. it takes enough work for one artist to put out an album with all the problems that come with that but multiply the problems by 2 and I doubt many will ever be actually made.
I hate when rappers promise stuff like this though.
^ man…i have no info except to say they’re both really enigmatic and busy. You’re talking about two extremely talented and free-spirited dudes right there so getting them to match up and lock in on anything is challenging I suppose. Good call though.
Man, that Nas/AZ album is waaaaaaay overdue. Also, that Doom/Ghost collaboration was confirmed by Starks himself so where the fuck is it? Meanwhile, we get to be audibly treated to Gucci Mane & V-Nasty and as and added bonus French Montana & Waka Flocka. C’mon man…..
i been listening to joi a lot this week. i would’ve like to heard her do a joint with screechy peachy, i thnik the atliens intro is the greatest of all time. raphael was all over her last two albums though. production wise.
AHHHHHH, how didn’t talk about CRS (Children Rebel Soldier by Kanye Lupe and Pharrel, fuck utopia, call it heroine), i mean, Us Placers & Fucced up? man, us placers would probably had 5 digits plays on my itunes if i still had my old computers.
You’re right he did – there was 2 songs that surfaced from that project; “Right Now” and “Gangsta Boogie”. Plus the two of them did a track with Estelle “Pretty Please (Love Me)” and to be honest if they made a whole album of tracks that sounded as good as those three it would be an all time classic.
as much utpia it would have been im sik of talkin bout nas & az lp…. AGAIN. i think it wouldnt do well know because its been in the talk of the street for so long it would b imposssible for two musicians to make that good of music for their fans…..lol been dope at turn of century tho!!
The reported nature of that project has varied a lot over time. It started off as a mixtape, but has also been talked about as an album. Over time they also said that Cole would mostly be producing it and would only be rapping on a few songs. They’ve both been asked about it recently and said that they were both too busy for it to come out anytime soon.
After hearing HiiiPower though, I’ll wait until my deathbed if I have to.
I won’t front, I can’t believe it was my shiz! But, I would say I would rather have that Weezy/Juelz collab. The Dedication mixtapes and all things Dipset was the soundtrack to my freshman year in college.
Yeah… he’s the first artist to get skipped on my iTunes now but Wayne circa 2004-2007 was nothing short of incredible. I still remember playing his verses off of “Hollywood Divorce” & the “Knuck If You Buck Freestyle” to skeptics and getting the inevitable “damn, he spitting like that now” response. Now it’s hardly believable this is the same guy that once said “call me young Raekwon. I’m a chef in hell’s kitchen.” Wayne’s mixtapes actually got me through my last 2 years of college. I’m not afraid to admit it.
