    Pretty good representation of my musical taste, although its a little rap heavy and very light on rock. Just the luck of the draw.

    1. Thick is one of my all-time favorite Big L verses AND one of my all-time favorite Preem beats. Also, Television and live Otis are where it's at.

    Welcome Home by Coheed and Cambria
    G-Beat by Aoi Yuki
    Redo by Konomi Suzuki
    White Rabbit by Jefferson Airplane
    El Manana by Gorillaz

    These are all things I've listened to as of late. Couldn't compile them into a playlist because I've got too much overlap for some artists. Like the twenty Wu songs or the six Biggie songs.

    1. "Ali Bomaye" is the best song The Game has dropped in the past five years. On one of his own albums, anyway; his "Just Another Day" from Dr. Dre's Compton still bangs today. And that, my dear readers, is the most music criticism I've written in three months.

  19. Cam'ron - "War" ft Hell Rell
    XXYYXX - "Set it Off"
    Beanie Siegel - "Go Low"

    Cam'ron - "Give Me Some Head"
    Cage - "Public Property"
    Yelawolf - "Whiskey in A Bottle"
    Lupe Fiasco - "Brave Heart" ft Poo Bear
    Ice Cube - "Wicked"

  20. Red Hot Chili Peppers - We Turn Red
    Ghostface Killah - Winter Warz
    OutKast - Spaghetti Junction
    Wu-Tang Clan - One Blood Under W
    Method Man - 2 Minutes Of Your Time
    Run The Jewels - Blockbuster Night
    Red Hot Chili Peppers - Dark Necessities
    2Pac - Temptations
    Royce Da 5'9' - Wait
    Wu-Tang Clan - 40th Street Black / We Will Fight

    Maybe not the best songs to represent artists, but good representation of musical taste overall

    1. Run The Jewels' "Blockbuster Night Part 2" is my shit.

    Bop Alloy - Star Child

    Public Enemy - Public Enemy No.1

    Not hugely representative, I suppose. Normally it'd be a bit more eclectic... am surprised The Smiths didn't come up in this shuffle as they apparently did for everyone else, especially as I have a lot of Morrissey on my iPod!

    Oh, and great to have you back Max!

  24. Max is alive good to know now, when can we expect some album reviews???

    19) Timbaland "Fuck Off, Magoo"
    20) Warcloud "Don't Worry, Max Will Come Back In 2017 With 400 Reviews Of Terrible Wu-Tang Affiliate Albums From The Early 00's Nobody's Ever Heard Of, Including Their Parents"
    21) MC Hammer "Can't Touch This"

    1. Timbaland's "Fuck Off, Magoo" made me laugh much harder than I was expecting. Well played.

  37. Has anybody of you considered that the names of the tracks Max posted may hint on his personal condition and that there will be no new posts soon?
    At least I'm sure that it wasn't his intention to be bombarded with your shitty playlists - he probably already lost faith in us.

    1. this is exactly what I was thinking.

    2. Actually, the different playlists was exactly what I was hoping for. Although I appreciate the deeper reading into the song titles that I chose for my own...

  38. Great playlist. Im surprised max even has a kevin gates record in his playlist

  39. Come on Max, come back! The new Joe Budden needs a HHID review!

  40. Max, your Fat Joe retrospective got set back two albums -- he's recorded as a D.I.T.C. member on DITC Studios and Sessions.

    Also, Havoc released a solo album and a collabo with the Alchemist. Assuming you'll get back on the blog anytime soon (i.e., by January) these albums should be a reviewing priority.*

  46. Hip Hop may not be dead, but is Max? And what might he have to say about the current hip-hop landscape?

    1. Is that really something you want to know? Asking for a friend.

  47. So when is max coming back ?

  48. Well... I'm still surprised to see no post in all these years. This really was an outlet for finding super rare shit that nobody heard about; you had a lot of words to say, you grew in the best way possible.

    I may still browse the rest of this blog to find out what shit is worth bumping but damn, without a review it seems like the entire stature of the blog just fell to the wayside, no offense.

    I don't know if you want to reconnect, just letting you know how you unknowingly impacted the blogging game.
