talib has been on social media rampage in the last few years and it seems to have really divided and "silenced" his fanbase

BUT before all this, if you've been a fan of "quality" underground hip hop in the past 20 years or so at one time or another you probably regarded talib as one of NY's best and even best in general lyricists in the business.

Anyhow, I just got the "Radio Silence" album, not sure if an album discussion thread was ever made but I'm just curious what everybody's thoughts is on this 1?

Drop ya thoughts in here and I will drop mine when I'm done bumping the album

I will say that the first song with Alchemist is fire. He def comes out swinging and now I'm on the Paak song which sounds good, too.

I'll save my whining about waka flaka and rick ross being on the album until after I hear the songs lol but why talib? why?

I haven't listened to the whole thing yet but it's been on my radar because of Myka's involvement. It definitely has an interesting mix of talent on it and Talib know's what's up but I just haven't gotten into his work since the early days.

see me I've at least liked/loved every single one of his releases

i really got to a point where i had to ignore his social media negative energy this last year and I really feel like diabolic handed him a verbal beat down. but musically he's always been in/around my top ten simply based off the consistency of good songs on all his releases. he's up there for me. dope live performer, too.

what's kind of ironic is that talib had that line on long life by dela

"Don't you hate when a n*gga got some intellect
But say some dumb shit on the internet
Do I forgive him, yes"


and this is exactly how a lot of people feel about talib lol

i dont think talib is any more intellectual then any other rapper. he just chose conscious rap as his lane. half the game says the same shit he does in interviews but he does it on beat so hes smart. hes a jackass and racist



also observe made this thread already

i saw a 10 minute rant joe budden did on jay elec. it was amazing. jay elec surpassed the papoose and saigon level of not dropping something and his time has passed. he isnt 2nd coming of shit.

Uhhh. Talib owns a book store , I'm sure he's smarter than most musicians. You don't know his history or know that he went to a university. But stay mad at him for standing up against racism. The new album is a dope. I made a post about this already

mm. i don't know, man. i think you might have let the hype get to you too much or something. or maybe you're just hating on him because others give him love. i don't know. either way, if he never releases another song, it's fine. i mean, scientifik only put out one rough demo and one album before killing himself, and i don't hate on him for not putting out enough. i enjoy his criminal album. same with jay. he's got dope tracks. sure, he could put out more, but that doesn't somehow diminish the tracks he has put out. the whole reason there was hype in the first place was because of how much people liked the tracks he released. it'd be nice to have more, but also who cares.

using joe budden as a reference doesn't help your case either. especially when you're calling jay soft. joe budden is pussy boy emo rap personified. he might have released more music than jay, but he ironically doesn't have nearly as many good songs as jay.

jay elect is dope- above average-has that vocab etc. but he deserves waaaaaaay less attention and respect. its easy to drop a verse here and there or an ep. doing an album thats dope is like showing that your a force worth fucking with. i can see people saying hes talented but the praise he gets is pure hysteria due to his top of the world affiliations and hype. people on his dicky bird when they never even heard a myka 9 album!

and whats with abandoning rap just cause you got money? dosnt seem like he's real to me.

don't mean to hate, but i think you've completely misinterpreted jay's behaviour here. didn't leave because of money.

Today I learned that having money yto own a book store or going to uni makes you intellectual lol

Talib probably isn't more intellectual than many other rappers (underground or mainstream). And his use of social media proved that despite projecting himself as such he is way less intelligent than what he thinks and what we once thought

lol this thread is a shit show.


first off, joe budden is dope as fuck when he does the introspective emo stuff but yall prob know how i feel bout that already if you know me lol his catalog got way better songs than j elec


the jay elect (common sounding) verse was coo on here to me, better than the mykah, both two of the dopest songs on here.

and this album is good, but ends kinda weak imo

plus the waka song was an epic fail and should have been left off the album. it sounds out of place and nothing like a talib song should ever sound like.

ps (at mean gene and awkward-herb)

i said "not sure if an album discussion thread was ever made"

ya bish

Been listening to this more today and I'm liking the vibe and production more than anything else I've heard from Talib in a while. Always been a fan but another one of those artists that gets boring with a bunch of mediocre material in between the great stuff. This one is definitely worth picking up though!

Wait owning a book store which means you're an avid reader and also going to a university doesn't make you an intellectual ? Lol

owning a bookstore just means you "own" a bookstore. i know university graduates that are far from intellectual. chomsky is an intellectual. Talib is just intelligent.

^dont let the rigid english language and pedantic grammatical rules entrap you! dont be a robot dawg! i can get grammatical as a grammar nazi when need be but the trick is to be mentally free and not always be worried about petty grammar. the english language is governed by the very polarizing one dimensional aristotelian logic and is used against people in various ways.
