iLose…

There is no good reason that you should ever leave your computer. Except for maybe the deuce, but even DJ Kay Slay films himself taking shits (WTF?!?). The second your azz gets up from the deck they leak that shit out and by the time you get back home and sit at the deck you have missed your window to d/l and the link is dead and everything is already on smash. The good thing is that everything is already OnSmash.

In honor of the Com Sense leak this weekend that I missed I will listen to ‘The People’ and ‘SouthSide’ on repeat. I know we dealt with the lyrical content of this song somewhere on the site already so I won’t rehash that issue. Here’s my argument… Is Jay Dee more influential a producer to current Hip-Hop than Dr. Dre? What producer has Dre brought up through the ranks? KanYe reeks of Jay Dilla’s Midwest soul and boom bap swagger. I’ve joked on Common’s macramé knitwear outfits, but his catalog is wild official and long. Com Sense goes back to the ScarFace days.

I ran around the city this weekend and I heard a LOT of Fisty Scent. ‘I Get Money’ and ‘Amusement Park’ are heavy in the streets. “I Get Money’ is the official stick up kid, hand to hand hustler, $10 pimp summer anthem. I predict that one more bonafide hit from Fisty during the late August Labor Day weekend will cement the ‘Curtis’ album as the sales winner over Kanghey’s ‘Graduation’. Twenty years from now you will still listen to ‘Graduation’. ‘Curtis’? Not so much. So you tell me who is the winner?

    I don’t know, Sunday, but, I’m listening to “The Shining” album (as I comment), and that shit is amazing. I swear, man, that album is what Hip Hop is about. But, I’m looking forward to Common’s album, then Ye’s, and Fifty’s, well, no disrespect, but I won’t be buying it. I’m sure he’ll get his platinum plaque without me, tho’.

    J DILLA RIP

    purple hulk u a fag man, talkin bout u first. u were suppose to comment on the article.

    Sans electric circus Com prollly has the most consistent catalog evar .. real talk lol

  • boner jams 03

    dilla has the best body of work in rap history….

  • Your God

    Common album wasn’t all that(no keenan and kel)

    Dr. Dre will always be more influential than Dilla and any other producer simply because every decade he dictates(nh) what the sound of hip hop will be.

    I don’t care about the Curtis or Kanye albums.

  • RICK RUDE

    Jay will NOT release “Graduation” on Sept. 11. I’ll put some paper up.

  • Cuban Link

    >>Is Jay Dee more influential a producer to current Hip-Hop than Dr. Dre? What producer has Dre brought up through the ranks?

    He brought up Eminem, although that aint saying much (as a producer I mean)

    and I know it sounds horrible, but if Dr. Dre was dead, youd see a lot more producers taking notes from him.

    and btw, that I Get Money song makes Queens worth living in this summer.

    Everyone on my street is wearing G-Unit clothes again, lmao!

    oh and by the way, Fuck “Your God” Keenan and Kel arent gay u fucking queer!

  • brebre

    I’M GUESSING NEXT SINGLE FROM 50 WILL BE THE JOINT W/ JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE PRODUCED BY TIMBALAND. IT’S NOT I GET MONEY BUT IT AIN’T TOO BAD ACTUALLY AS A POP SINGLE. IT WILL DO WELL IN RADIO AND MTV TRL SHIT. SERIOUSLY, I HOPE KANYE BACK OFF. NOT SURE HIS GIANT EGO LET IT GO THOUGH.

  • DOLO

    dilla is responsible for commons wackest and tribes wackest lps .. lol

    i disagree, Mr. Sunday…50 might be hot in “the streets”…but nobody will buy his shit…the streets don’t buy cd’s…they download the shit or they cop the bootleg…and since you heard them songs all weekend, that means they already got ‘em…what do they need the rest of the album filler for?…alternately, Kanye caters to the white folks (not exclusively; just moreso than 50)…so he will win the sales race on 9/11…and Timberlake can’t do shit about it…not a talent judgment (i’ll be copping both…though Kanye wins that one easily)…i just calls ‘em how i sees ‘em…

  • derfla the hus’la

    who has dre not influenced ?

  • John Brown

    Billy,

    If 50 beats Kanye with first win sales, he wins the battle. If he outsells Kanye he wins the battle. But, if Graduation is being played 20 years from now, what does he win? BTW, when was the last time you put College Dropout on your rotation? College Dropout to me is Kanye best work to date. But I havent heard it in a while. What makes me think that Graduation will be something I will bump 20 years from now.

    Dolo says “dilla is responsible for commons wackest and tribes wackest lps .. lol”

    Nahh mayne, just listen to that Love Movement joint again if you have to. I don’t like Tribe more than DeLa, but that is the one Tribe disk I bump more than any other.

  • Incilin

    “Twenty years from now you will still listen to ‘Graduation’. ‘Curtis’? Not so much. So you tell me who is the winner?”

    - How da fuck do you know which album will actually be better? And I still listen to “Get Rich” every once in a while, more often than College Dropout.

  • Hokus

    Curtis, Graduation, Are either of these discs gonna be relevant even 6 months after they drop? I mean GRODT still gets some play onn my speakers every now and then, and I stll bump “Jesus Walks” and a few others off Drop Out from time to time, but I don’e really listen to either of their second discs much at all. Can they bring the brilliance back? I dunno, but I read that interview with Mr. Porter and he was sayin that Dre’s “Detox” album is finna change the game again. And I believe it.

  • Crimson

    They sho ain’t playing 50 out in Cali. “Only in New York, dog, your ass is local.” The tables have turned.

  • A Musicians view…

    Dilla probably IS more influential – to producers..Its a shame alot of ppl dont know what he brought to the game.Look at who Dre co-signs:
    Hi-Tek(Says Dilla saved hip-hop.Not to mention took 85% of his style.I thought Jay Dee made “The Blast”).
    Mr. Porter(AGAIN says Dilla saved hip hop and is the reason he makes beats.)
    Scott Storch(Another Dilla fan.Remember when he was in The Roots?).Even Dre started using the “empty drums, jet-lag bounce” style ppl dissed Dilla at first for using. But like I said, he mainly influenced producers & musicians.U can hear it. Ask Kanye, Pharrel, Timbo, 9th Wonder, Just Blaze, etc. In 2002 (Rocafella soul sampling era), he left the neo-soul sound he created and went into crazy synths & hard drums. Now in 2007 we catch up & are in the synth & drums era. Do the research..Crazy

    Not to much 50 being played in the South either. Gimmicks as a substitute for word play only last so long. At least in the past.

    60% of love movement is on par with all of midnight marauders, the rest is throwaway. trust it pains me to even write that but it is what it is. besides, it was beats rhymes and life that dilla helmed. tribe had great posse cuts though didnt they? that track at the end of the love movement with punch and words is sick.

  • http://xxlmag.com Billy X. Sunday

    I agree that Dilla was complex and futuristic. A musicians’s favorite producer is always more valid than a critic’s favorite producer anyhoo.

    Jay Dilla R.I.P.
