Will Sessions – Represent Intro / It Aint Hard To Tell

Wednesday, September 28th, 2011

Elmatic Instrumentals is pretty dope, very good for dayjob listening (ie keeping it real without getting fired). Will Sessions interpolate and riff on the originals subtly but enough to make these new versions interesting on their own terms. At it’s best points this album reminds me of El Michels Affair’s The 37th Chamber.
I’m singling out “Represent Intro” because it’s the album’s most significant deviation from the original Illmatic tracklist, and it’s good enough to make me wish the band did more like it. And “It Aint Hard To Tell” is getting posted simply because it’s “It Aint Hard To Tell”.

Does Elzhi care anymore?

First read this and then this and then this.

El – Why do you even bother anymore? You’ve been phoning in verses for years now. What happened homie? You used to be the future star. You were that ’87 Topps Bo Jackson Future Star at one point. You continued to steal the show and we all rooted for you. Are you bored? Are you uninspired with rap? Are you all disgruntled because the Fat Beats album wasn’t promoted well or that Slum Village is run by snakes? Black Milk deserves better. We the people deserve better. Enough with this bullshit. Don’t waste anymore time talking about T3. Stop with the Nas remake. Get your shit together or just fall the fuck back. And you owe Mic King his $ back for that wack verse too.

T3 (Slum Village) crying about how Elzhi stole all the attention

Let’s not be naive, the ONLY reason why Elzhi isn’t all over this new SV album is because he shitted on all of them. This video is proof that T3 has hurt feelings that he isn’t considered as dope.

The 2009 Register Vol.7: iCon the Mic King

When Employee asked me to write one of these I was at a loss for what to talk about…as I often am when people ask me to tell them stories about where I go and what I do. It’s kind of a problem I have where I’m not as mindful of my accomplishments as I should be because I’m always trying to get to the next thing. I also hate qualifying. I’m the dude that’ll tell a hot bird my dayjob is picking up animal dookie at the petting zoo. However skimming through the writings of the other guys (except MB…I totally skipped that philabuster) made me get more perspective on my year. Then I wrote it and it was dumb long and I had a nightmare where I was pelted with “didn’t read” emoticons.
