OBCL2 is a great album. A little too long winded for sure but overall with all those tracks there's only about 2 or 3 i skip past. So many fucking bangers on it. Rae showed heads how to properly make a sequel album. Of course it's not on the level as the OG as that's a Mt. Rushmore album but it still holds its own 14 years after the OG.

I listened to the album about a month ago and it just didn't hold up for me. I loved it when it came out, but it sounds poorly constructed now, and kinda all over the place.

these were the really good tracks still: cold outside, gihad, surgical gloves, broken safety, fat lady sings

and that's about it....everything else ranges from serviceable (sonnys missing, new wu) to trash (catalina, we will rob you)....it has its moments, but overall is just too long and comes across as messy when listening now. eh, whatever.

I revisited it a couple times since we decided on 2009 for the next year to do. Tracks that are good to great on it to me are...

House of Flying Daggers, Sonny's Missing, Black Mozart, Gihad, New Wu, Surgical Gloves, 10 Bricks, About Me, Ason Jones, and Kiss The Rings.

Pyrex Vision is dope but only like a minute long.

I think the album doesn't have as much cohesiveness cause of the variety of producers he used. The beats are all over the place.

the critical comments are on point. OB4CL2 is pretty dope but beats are all over the place and some weak shit and too long. plus i can only take raes pseudo mafioso psycho babble in small doses. he came strong and correct but he even used an old dilla beat we heard before.

on the flip side, I listened to born like this the other day and that album still sounds fresh as hell....

the production from jake one, doom, madlib, and dilla (a murderers row producer lineup) is fantastic...and doom sounds hungry and energetic on it. tracks like gazillion ear, ballskin, absolutely, that's that, angelz, and cellz are just excellent and carry that classic doom feel, but with fresh energy...

out of all the albums, I think this album should probably win, tbh. it's an excellent piece of work. kinda reminds me of the Aesop rock refresh with skelethon/the impossible kid.

born like this might be my favorite doom album right up ther with dangerdoom and madvillain.



that rae is NOT how u do a sequel at all clock. ther is no cohesiveness like a mixtape and its 24 songs like a shitty mixtape. i understand i have a different taste than most (not saying better) but at the same time it takes alot more for me to like a song and put it on a playlist. seriously 21 songs are not good on that outta 24. maybe like 9-10.

DOOM and Rae were 1a and 1b in this round for me. Both are top shelf and i wouldn't be mad if either of them won the AOTY. I think it'll come down to those two and Fashawn. Maybe Dopp as well.

I just meant in terms of quality. Usually when artists go the Part 2 route it's a fail. But yea it doesn't have the theme or cohesiveness of a sequel.

^gino- rae came pretty raw and he picked a lot of really hard beats. not too cohesive but could have been a lot softer. i see and hear his effort to come correct and he did for the most part.

i mean its good but sequel winning aoty is ridiculous to me. rap is notorious for doing horrible pt.2 albums or mixtapes and im serious, this is no different. i dont wanna hear raekwon for even 14 songs in a row let alone 24.

What albums you think have a legit shot? There's going to be a lot of middle of the road shit in the finals. As i just said, id be shocked if it's not one of those three or four albums. I know In The Ruff has an outside shot too but i don't think it'll get enough votes. I just hope it's not a blowout like the last year we did.
