Saturday night quarterbacking

A while ago, I ran a poll on my own site seeking to determine which was the most anticipated upcoming rap album – Raekwon’s sequel to 1995′s Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, Dr. Dre’s Detox, Nas’ Hip-Hop Is Dead, or a new Jay-Z album. Perhaps because the three mid ’90s New Yawk rappers split the vote, Dre’s Detox managed to take the poll; but it was still pretty close, with only 34 votes separating number one from number four.

The thing is, Detox probably won’t be coming out, or at least not anytime soon. It already seemed less than likely before the recent brouhaha with the Game being “reassigned” to Geffen records. Now who knows what’s the status of Aftermath. Dre tends to be at his best when he’s got a stable of young rappers and producers around to write his shit for him, and it’s been a minute since he’s had anyone around who’s worth a shit.

I imagine a Jay-Z comeback album would do well, or at least as well as the Black Album, based on the hype that would be generated by Jay-Z coming out of water. He is, after all, ascending to the level of a hip-hop Bono – going around Africa, trying to help the water crisis by rappin’ (?). Is Mos Def going to dedicate a dis song to him, too? And maybe he’ll take Sickamore’s advice and drop Beyonce like a bad habit. I heard her new album sucks balls anyway.

Maybe he’ll even replace her with a white broad. I’m sure he’s thought about it.

A new Nas album would have to be considered somewhat of a wildcard. He’s been on a commercial slide since forevar, and his last album kinda sucked balls. Even his legions of Internets stans could only defend it so much. In a year in which hardly anyone other than Cee-Lo is doing particularly well, Hip-Hop Is Dead could stand a strong chance at being the next Blood Money, on a commerical level. And based on what I’ve heard about it, it might also suck like that album.

Similarly, smart money would have to be against a new Raekwon album bucking the trend of albums by ’90s era New York rappers going double wood. To be sure, the name Only Built 4 Cuban Linx still holds a certain bit of cachet, especially in the current age of cocaine rap uber alles; but perhaps not enough to make the buying public forget the monumental, life altering shit sandwiches that were Immobilarity and the Lex Diamond Story.

And it’s worth noting that even Rae’s fellow clansman Ghostface, most of whom’s albums don’t suck balls, can’t move many more than a couple hundred thousand units. That said, who gives a shit about album sales, anyway? I know personally I’ll be satisfied with just a good album. And I’m sure as long as it’s good, Def Jam’s tax department can arrange for Rae to get the same deal they’re giving Ghost and the Roots. Otherwise, who knows what he’ll end up doing.

    It really is time for Jay to get with a white girl.

    A really young one, under 23.

  • http://xxlmag.com Bol

    Are there any prominent rappers with white girlfriends? I might have to do a post on that one day.

  • slap fire out a blog

    Cosign, I would just be happy with a good album to drop, preferably I would llove for J’s and Rae’s album to be the end all of the 4th quarter but we will see……….

  • thoreauly77

    nas is going to suck. i listened to illmatic yesterday and realized some rappers just cant do it again… and cuban linx? we all wish that it is going to be exceptional, or at least good, but i am going to go out on a limb and guess 4 good tracks and the rest is ass-gravy.

  • thoreauly77

    yeah bol, ice-t! oh yeah, you said “prominent”.

  • I Fux

  • Spark

    1st bitches jay-z and rae. is bringing everything back

  • Reed

    The way thing’s are going with Aftermath,it’s a wrap for any type off Dre album coming out. If his recent “production” credits are any idication, he’s totally lost the will to live now that he’s 50′s bitch.
    Raekwon… all sign’s point to one huge turd burger (hold the pickles). Nas is bipolar and alway’s has a good album followed by pure diareah on wax, so he’s due for a decent album that wont sell, but’ll be a critical success. A Jay album will sell on name alone and probably wont be that good being how it’ll have Young Jeezy duet #1,236 on it, followed by a Rick Ross, Lady sovereign, Rihanna track that’ll make want to poke your ear drums with a rusty nail in hopes of going “def”.

    >yeah bol, ice-t! oh yeah, you said “prominent”.

    You sure she’s not a latino?

  • e

    A good Nas or Raekwon will be enough I don’t care about their sales. Jay’s album will be to watered down I am basing this on his recent cameos. Dre’s will suck because there aren’t any talented rappers on Aftermath that can sell records, I doubt people will buy a Dre album where Gage and Obie Trice are the top mcs. Hopefully Redman or Joe Budden drop something

  • http://rockthedub.blogspot.com khal

    dunno if i’d call ice’s wife latino… her name is nicole austin, which seems pretty wonderbread to me.

    to call ice-t prominent is another convo entirely…

  • DJ N-Credible

    How can you say Nas new album will suck i heard a single and dude was spittin venom…rae album probably be something to listen too…jay-z will pull a Michael Jordan and get fired by Def Jam…and dont sleep on Faboloso next album…dropping this fall…clipse album is hyped up too much they wont live up to the expectations….

  • Mikey Ess AKA SukedowN

    Ice-T’s girl is definitely white.

    She’s got that ghetto latina pornstar look going though, kind of deceiving.

    Off subject, but that new (Nike??) commercial with Mike Vick, Clinton Portis and Bryan Urlacher is hilarious.

    It starts with Deon Sanders in a kitchen (as the dad) and having coffee with his actor (maybe real life?) wife. She is looking so not the type that would date a black man.
    [Guess you have to see it]

  • LONZO

    Really not lookin forward to a jay-z album cuz he’s too mtv-trl-pop now. And a new Nas album will probably be good but not sale. ……I can’t wait for the clipse cd cuz those niggaz got a sick flow. And the new Game will be fire………..and if eminem, game, xzibit,snoop help out on Detox it’ll be hot and fire but we all know it aint comin.

  • Spark

    Lame ass name? (bonner jams) who else are we lookin 4 dipset- shit,lil whatever-shit game-shit. they’re the ruler of rap for 10-15 years c’mon lee.

  • Boner Jams 03

    so let me pose this question:

    Of these four, whose classic is the best?

    Is it:
    Dr Dre’s The Chronic
    Nas’ Illmatic
    Jayz’s Reasonable Doubt
    Or Raekwon’s Cuban Links

    I’m goin with Illmatic, followed by the Chronic, then the Purple Tape, then Reasonable Doubt

  • http://xxl 2liveanddieinGA

  • pop a poppa

    as long as i don’t gotta fly on an
    Arab-only airline i don’t care if
    none of the albums listed above sell
    any records. at least it will be
    quality hip-hop which has been at a
    shortage recently.

  • http://myspace.com/wabdamuss wab

    I think Jay-Z will deliver the best album.

  • weezybaby

    bol do u like lil wayne on the rap tip

  • Fernando

    There is no separating those albums. Cant be done. I would be perfectly content putting any one of those in my stereo system. Id probably go with “illmatic” and ‘Reasonable Doubt” right now. But there is no denying the 6-7 SUPER BANGERS on “the chronic”….Damn, now I’m doing what I said cant be done..Ill shut up now

  • Fernando

    Now Im just depressed. I just realized that there hasnt been an album of that quality in about eight years or more. rap sucks now

    Dude, seriously, if you don’t like hip-hop music, you should quit your job. Someone who really loves the music should at least wake up excited about the music, not wake up excited to trash it. Or at least if you must live to talk bad about the musicians you write about, at least take your job serious enough to write with more than elequence than the simplicity with which you write. “Shit sandwich?” That’s the best you got? It’s you’re biggest crutch catchphrase, and you got it from Revolver magazine?

    And Jay-Z’s got an ego, for sure, but he’s nowhere hear the pure narcissist that Bono is. Jay-Z actually does care too.

This nigga along with LaReid is putting out nothing but R&b and pop shit unless you count all the south artist Young jeezy,rick ross,luda. I personally don’t think we need another Jay-z album that nigga said the black album was his last and that shit went 3 platinum he now makes 3 million a year sitting behind a desk he needs to stay in that seat.I would love to hear a detox album if dre actually produce all the songs instead of having wack as swiss beats or other producers contribute most of the beats.Nas is fucking done he should have started a real label years ago when every queen artist was trying to get down with him. Nas lives in Atlanta with his wife kelis so what can he say about New York life now. Rae was nice over ten years ago but who really wants to hear his album niggas not even checking for ghostface or meth who are bigger artist.

Personally I’d rather see a return to form of the RZA producing a whole album of fire, the way he did the first string of wutang releases. I also wanna see some pigs fly this year…

    Jay needs to drop a record, or at least I hope he does. I don’t think the detox record will ever drop, because of the situation Aftermath has. The last cd the put out this year was Busta and he flopped. When you look at the Aftermath/Shady/G-Unit Dynasty this year none of their cds have gone Platinum that have been released this year. Seems like their chokehold on the game isn’t what it used to be. He can’t put out Detox because Aftermath isn’t strong enough for him to drop a record and last year had too much beef for him to drop. The nas record might be good, but it’ll brick because it’s a New York album. Killa Season, Blood Money, Todd Smith, and The Big Bang all bricks.

    You have a point there Mr N-Credible, there is no comparison. YJ is a generational demarker in that the older you are the less likely you are to “get it.” Leaves me scrathing my head, personally, but I’m sure Ice Cube left a lot of people scrathing their heads back in the day. With that said, I still have these things called EARS, which tell me that “thug motivation 101″ sucks. I like Carter 2 by Lil Wayne, but that’s because the sound of that was more universally musical (if that makes any sense).

    On the other hand WTC (for all their fading glory, can still rhyme circles around near everyone in the game) is completely irrelevant to todays’s youth culture, sorry to say. The only people that can appreciate WTC are those that grew up with it or “music heads.” I’m alright with that.

    Jay should drop Beyonce when he got chicks like Christina Milan and Rhianna running around. They are younger than her and look flyer too.

    As for the most anticipated album, I think a new Jay album will suck really bad. The new Nas album is prolly gonna be a mixed bag with some good stuff and some terrible stuff. The Ray joint should be hot if he picks the right songs to put on the album.

  • Whoa

    Why are all these picks known for f’ing up at least once. Dre’s Detox totally depends on who is co-producer is (Mike Elizondo is MIA, Melman is AWOL, Scott Storch doesn’t need Dre).
    Jay-Z does well regardless but how much of relevance does it make (note: Beyonce’s Deja Vu & Ring the Alarm both suck & might make LeToya’s Album sound just that much better and be LeToya’s Sweetest Revenge)when you can’t produce a winning Rap Act on Hip Hop’s Premier Rap Label. Nas is either going to weird it up again or produce another “just alright” album (ex. I am, Stillmatic). Raekwon can’t make a hit to save his life in this post Cuban Linx Decade. The greatest hope lies in The New Blood who haven’t had to live in the shadow of classic albums they can never top.

  • e

    Ice Cube had to live in the shadow of Straigh Outta Compton and produced Amerikkka’s most wanted, death certificate, and 2 westside connection albums not all rappers are that mentally weak where they buckle to the pressure

  • Sushi K

    ^
    True but Rae is living under the pressure of two consecutive er… shit sandwiches. In fact I would rather listen to Thug Motivation 101 than either of those albums.

    Incidentally, Ice Cube > Raekwon, but I still think OBFCL2 will be much better than the slab Ice Cube dropped this year.

    If you all haven’t heard Raekwon’s Vatican mixtape, then dig it up somewhere, as it’s got some great shit on it.

    IMHO: Vatican>Fishscale
    (although Shakey Dog off Fishscale is absolutely sick)

    With any luck the album proper will be even better. It’s just nice to hear Raekwon all fired up and crazy lyrical again, with good music backing him up.

  • Akatok1

    I think that Dr. Dre cd will the one the succeed. Come on Dre knows when to put out cd and knows to produce it correctly. He’s a perfectionist. Nas cd will be second because they wanna see if he will still be the same Nas they everybody loves or will he go the commerical route. Rae is third because his other two albums sucks. He needs to take his time with his lyrics and pick good beats from the RZA. The Game is next because even though he’s on Geffen, everybody wants to know if he can make it without the assistance of dre and 50. Jay-Z needs to shut up keep his 3 million job and fuck b to death and enjoy life. He made classics albums sold so many copies… even put damon dash to shame (his label got dropped from universal so he went to koch for that usual $7 a cd)his era came and gone. The reason why New York is losing in the rap game because they are always talking about the south not making good music. They need to just shut the fuck up and concentrate on making real music. Stop making fucking commerical ass songs and r&b type songs just to sell records. That lets me know you a sold out bitch. The reason why the south is winning because they work hard on what they do. They concentrate on their music. They’re not worrying about making hits… they just want to put out good records that people can just dance on. Besides if you want real lyricism go to UGK, Scarface, The Getto Boys, Eightball & MJG, etc. You cant say Young Jeezy is good because he always takes about dope selling…. and always saying heyyyyyy all the time. Plus his flow is just too slow sounds like he dragging his flow to the beat. T.I. is not the king of the south because he’s still a rookie in this business.. you name me one person that was the king of something and didnt get killed later on… right nobody… T.I. needs to concentrate on making good music before his ego becomes his dismise. Lil Wayne needs to step his game up period. He losing his audience how the hell you get caught up in a drug bust and you on cash money on your last two albums went platinum.. just dumb. The only New York that’s been in the game still making money is 50 Cent and he needs to chill the fuck out. The reason why Mobb Deep wasnt successful was he was half of the songs and he was trying to give them that crossover appeal. Didnt work. Tony Yayo cd flopped because everybody knows this motherufcka sucks. Also we need this fucking radio stations to stop playing the same fucking music and give other people chances. i mean we got stations that was being paid by the artists labels to spin their songs to death. That aint right. The music needs to speak for itself. These producers need to stop thining about making hit records for artists and just make music. Sometimes you can tell when producers are losing their touch for example…. Scott Storch was making good hits until he started bitting on lil jon’s 808 drum and bass tracks, Jazze Pha beats suck period….same beats he use before he switches them up from time to time….. Jermaine Dupri…. needs to step his game up really. I do give credit for bringing Mariah back and bringing Usher back too…. but this nigga thinks he’s god gift to artists. He uses his same 808 tracks to everybody and uses different synths that really suck. The only thing I see him doing good this year is probably Janet’s cd since she’s going back to the more (Control Album style) urban area she was know for. But everybody needs to stop hating on bullshit and make good music. Look at Three Six Mafia… they still do the same music after so many years, and they got an Oscar. See what happens when you make really good music, dont worry about hits. The music will speak for itself if you let it. Step yo Game Up NEW YORK

  • h-lo

    NaS said he was ready to make the ablbum of his career but he also wanted to rock
    the clubs. (MTV interviews) So I’m looking forward the most to his new album. Plus, keeping in mind that Jay will appear on it, it has to be special.

    I’m not sure what to expect from the upcoming Dre album. If there is even less good rapping (Eminem is retired, right?) as on 2001, even the best production won’t save it.

    Jay has to think twice whether he puts out another album . Because if he does it has to top the Black Album, which is not the easiest thing to do. If he does he’ll have the chance to make some less exciting guest appearences forgotten.

    Speaking of dropping Beyoncé: As her new album probably won’t deliver (it’s at least hard with Dèja Vu as the lead single), Jay might dive after white chicks like Nelly Furtado or Christina Aguilera (buying her husband out of the deal or offering him Be) as they have put out the best hiphop-related music so far in this year.

  • marlon

    Jay-z is nice but coming out of retirement is lame, thats like those businesses that always have going out of business sales but never go out of business, its hurting, besides judging his verse on De Ja Vu and Stay strapped he has fuck all to say anyways. Now Nas, the verses is Where y’all at and my brothers keeper tell me hip hop is dead is going to be ridiculous. Detox is never coming out, period. Raekwon’s album I’m doubting is coming out any time soon and if it does it will be good if RZA produces, but again, not holding my breath. people habe to start looking to new blood though really, these guys are nearing forty for them to spit shit the youth can relate to is kind of weird. Papoose, Uncle Murder, Maino, Bobby Creekwater, Stat Quo, these are the albums I’m looking forward to anyone who’s looking for a hot one from these legends needs to go back and listen to the albums these guys dropped when they were hungry and be content.

With it bein basically gold after 3 months tells me true hiphop headz are feelin it and it’s hardly a flop. U know, i never remember hiphop folk talkin bout album sales so much til 50 cent, now thats how people measure how good an album is. If Young Dro sells more than Busta or Ghost is he better? Im sick of this shit, this why im stuck in the 90′s!!!! 2pac’s first album(2pacalypsenow) didn’t go platinum til 4 years after its release,so was the album no good for 3 years? Busta already gold and if all this bullshit wasn’t surroundin him, id say he’d EASILY go platinum. I still think he will(in the US) because it’s a solid album,people who don’t have it are sleepin.

If it calls for a more simplistic or more style than just flat out killin’ ‘em wit’ the lyrics so be it. When it’s time 2 get busy we all know how Jay do. Then this nigga stay ahead of the curve. He was collaborating with Southern artists b4 it became the thing to do(Big Pimpin’(UGK), Ha(remix) Juvenile, and Scarface). Nas shit is gon’ be dope. It always has been, u muthafuckaz just don’t like 2 think. That’s y the South is winnin’ right now with that simplistic shit ’cause niggas don’t wanna think. Don’t trip though y’all, that shit gon’ fade because if u really trip all the southern artists that really sale(and when I say sale I mean at least platinim plus:TI, Luda, and Outkast) do have a nice spit game. Yeah Mike Jones, Paul Wall and Chamillionaire went platinum, but how many of them will b around in ’08,’09?!?! We just gotta wait it out.
