Rap albums of the half-year

As an addendum to my post the other day on the best and worst of hip-hop in 2007, I thought it would be interesting to take a look at a few other albums I’ve enjoyed this year. I already mentioned the new El-P and Redman albums in the other post, so I’ll spare you any more on them. Here’s another eight, which, in addition to those other two makes a solid 10. I didn’t bother to put them in any order, since who gives a shit anyway?

Without further ado.

Black Milk, Popular Demand. One of the few bright spots in an otherwise typically suck-ass year in hip-hop has been the emergence of Black Milk, one of the best rapper/producers in the game since forever. It’s almost as if the RZA, Primo, and J Dilla’s corpse all got together and adopted a kid and taught him to be a damn good producer, albeit fairly derivative of his fathers. He’s not a bad rapper, either.

Brother Ali, The Undisputed Truth. The more and more you hear about Brother Ali, the more you can’t help but feel sorry for the guy. I mean, there’s the albino thing; the whole being a Muslim thing; possible blindness; the fact that he’s often mistake for being black; the whole being forced to have Ant produce your entire album thing; a stint as a homeless person; a failed marriage; a dead mother. The list goes on and on.

Evidence, The Weatherman LP. Not that too many people were clamoring for an Evidence solo album, but he went ahead and made one anyway. Obviously you don’t miss that other guy from Dilated Peoples, and Evidence takes advantage of the opportunity to get extra personal (some would say emo) on the lyrical tip. Production tends to be a strong point on DP releases, and that’s definitely the case here as well.

KRS-One & Marley Marl, Hip Hop Lives. A few weeks ago, I made the mistake of alluding to the fact that KRS-One has a tendency to talk out of his ass, as well as to the years of crack cocaine use which will eventually lead Marley Marl to an early grave (a while before his recent heart attack, mind you). I guess I learned my lesson!

Pharoahe Monch, Desire. One the all-time great MCs returns after having been gone since way back in the 1990s. I wonder what he was doing. If this album’s beats were any good, it’d be one of the best rap albums in ages, if not evar. As it is, it’s still worth giving a listen or two, if only find out who really killed JFK.

Phat Kat, Carte Blanche. My guess is that many of you ‘bags have never heard of this guy, but at least he’s black, right? In fact, I’ll have you bitches know that Phat Kat was once in a group with J Dilla, and this album includes three beats which Dilla returned from the grave to produce. There’s also killer work on this from hot newcomer (nullus) Black Milk and some kid named Young RJ.

Prodigy, Return of the Mac. One of the all-time great feats of shamelessly wanton sampling since the days of Three Feet High and Rising. Prodigy isn’t half the rapper he used to be, but most rappers these days aren’t one-tenth the rapper he used to be, so he still sounds pretty good by comparison.

Talib Kweli, Ear Drum. It won’t be out for a minute, but I’m assuming we’ve all heard this by now. Talib Kweli has somehow gone and made his best album since Reflection Eternal, if not evar, despite himself. I mean, collaborations with the likes of Norah Jones and UGK don’t seem like very good ideas, but they still more or less work. A few tracks are even genuinely good without any qualification!

  • ri067953

    Man, I am glad to hear some positive feedback about Talib’s new album. I haven’t really heard any of the tracks but if it is in the same realm as Reflection Eternal then I know it will be some good music.

  • smog

    im so glad to see you some what postive bol, ive been calling for this shit for weeks

  • these posts are racist

    I give a fuck, obviously.

    Talib Kweli album is going to be hot. The man is an amazing rapper. Anyone who has heard him rap live will tell you, he’s a real emcee and doesn’t need all the extra production magic to make him sound good. I hope his album does well.

  • Ryan

    I think the Prodigy album is mostly carried by the production, although P is very good at painting pictures with his lyrics, it’s just seems like he’s not trying as hard, but whatever it’s dope. The Evidence, Brother Ali, and KRS albums are all dope, the Pharohe album would definitley be better with good beats, but nothing will top his Organized Konfusion stuff, and I haven’t heard Black Milk but I will definitley check for that. I can’t wait for LOL to pop up and discredit my opinion due to my whiteness.

  • Incilin

    I remember when the Black Milk album came out you said you liked it more than any record in the past few years. But now you say you like the Red and the El-P albums more, so does that mean ’07s been a better year in rap than the last two years combined?

    The Prodigy album is really good, I was actually bumping “NY Shit” an hour ago.

    Too bad Buck didn’t make your list.

    I haven’t heard the Kweli album yet, but it’s been leaked for a while and your the first person to say its good. To say its better than Reflection Eternal is quite a feat, but then again if it’s better than RE then shouldn’t that make it the best album of the year? Don’t you think RE is a brillant record?

  • Mo Nages

    Truth be told I’d like to see a new Havoc album drop soontime. Prodigy is aight, but Havoc is sickamore

    He said the whole “muslim thing” because it appears that you people are effing crazy and nobody likes you.

    I cant believe the guys who tried to blow up the London airport were Arab! Im soooo suprised. When I heard of a terrorist attempt, I immediatly thought of Samoan Islanders, or maybe some Amish people. But Muslims???? Never saw it coming.

    Keep beating the sympathy drum TPAR. Nobody cares and nobody feels sorry.

    KRS-ONE sucks, so does the Prodigy album. I loved Mobb Deep (nullus) but P sounds like the sickle cell medecine is starting to make him retarded. His rhymes suck really bad on this album but the Alchemist beats are nice. The rest of the selections arent bad though. I guess Rap just isnt what it used to be, or at least hasnt been for the last 2 years.

    I agree with every word you wrote about Return of the Mac. As an album, it definetly can’t even look , say, Hell On Earth, in the eye, but shit its still the dopest album thats dropped this year.

    As much as I appreciate the effort, the new Redman joint just doesnt work. Everytime you’re almost convinced it does and you say to yourself “hey, this is pretty dope”, he says a punchline that could feul a million Step Your Rap Games Up.

    the whole albino thing

  • Fernando

    Being fairly white myself, I can tell you that this is definitely a cracka-ass-cracka list of emcees and albums. Not that any of them are sellouts or cater to white people, but I have been to a lot of hip-hop shows and most of the crowds for these artists are white. But then again, most of the country is white, so whatever. But I am a fan of a lot of ignorant music too and I must say that it has been a bad year for ignorant rap. The new Turf Talk & Messy Slick albums are fire, Young Buck was pretty good, Dj Khaled had some nice joints, but other than that there hasnt been much to celebrate.

  • ILL WILL

    real shit, talib kweli’s album is hot. 1st bitches! ITS ME SNITCHES!

  • b-ease

    I plan on copping the Black Milk and Pharoah Monch joints ASAP.

    I have no need for Evidence (Dialated Peoples are the MOST overrated group in hiphop history) or the albino dude.

    I havent liked a Talib song since 2002 (literally) and i havent liked a KRS song ever (yea, I said it!)

    What percentage of the 1.3 billion Muslims have committed violence against innocent people?

    You analysis Fern is great and very sound. It applies to “Christians” who blow up abortion clinics, committ terrorist acts, such as the Oklahoma bombing, the KKK, dragging blacks behind trucks, it applies to “Blacks” who sell drugs and committ a disproportionate number of crimes, and Whites who disproportionatley molest children, beat their wives, kill more people than any disease by way of drunk driving accidents…etc. etc.

    You’re a bigot.

    Bol, I know youre gonna hate on it, but I really liked Fab’s album, i thought that was one of the top cds of 07.BTNH CD was hot too, that should be up there.

    Also, hip hop in 07 is even worse than 06.On 106 & Park, they havent even retired a single video yet, by this time last year they had already reitred like 4.

TPAR keep doing what you do, its a shame how the Bush administration has brainwashed some people to villanize a inherently peaceful religion. Islam, does not equal terrorism, it is the submissio to the will of God, Allah to be correct.

    Some things some people dont joke about under any circumstances, I mean there’s a certain point where humor can become malicious, since inside most jokes there lies some personal belief or truth, consequently becoming bad taste.
