Hate to say "I Told You So" but....

11 times out of 10 i'm over-ly correct about what "GOOD RAP MUSIC" is and most importantly WHAT IT ISN'T and I called this one a few months back, (click here dufus) not only did I do it here as one of my first entries but my videos on youtube date back a couple of months.

An Album I Care About Today: H.N.I.C. 2


Here’s what an average hip-hop artist’s career cycle looks like (the long-standing ones, at least):

–>Starts off with 1 - 2 supa dupa album(s)

–> Gets stuck in a creative rut for 2-5 years

–> Bounces back with 1 exceptional album to hush the haters

–> Hits creativity wall again…You get the picture.

P’s bounceback album was the appropriately titled Return of the Mac, one of the Top 10 albums of 2007. Thankfully, he keeps the creative juice flowing throughout H.N.I.C. 2. He sounds more mature, more articulate, yet more irreverent than ever. Now, all that will probably change after he goes to jail. I can’t think of too many rappers that have been able to drop a decent album after being locked up. Must be that jail food.

not lookin for props or a head nod, but when 9 out of 10 people call a spade a spade, that's just what the fuck it is.

I've known HNIC 2 was going to be phemonenal ever since a few of the cuts leaked like 5 months ago and apparently everone else is in Agreement.

Why can't rappers do this anymore. FOLLOW THE SAME SCRIPT that got you revered as one of the greats.

you see the production credits? I mean, a rapper of Prodigy's stature would usually be swayed to do more ''up beat contempary'' rap music by now but he know what got him where he's at and why Mobb Deep is who they are.
