Kurupt – Callin’ Out Names

Vs
Raw Man – Warning

niggas with hepatitis/ unauthorized hard-to-move arthritis/ infected selected neglected ejected/ and next time ya hit the west…

an underappreciated 2nd generation gfunk (end-to-end) burner. the other guy is just a genius, i guess. ‘warning’ peaks in both terrifying and blissful ways.

Evidence.

some thoughts:
– the stretch from ‘hey papi’ to ‘whatcha gon’ do’ is probably my favorite. slitherin’ beats that register in the Upper Ether. so is the closin tangent on ‘what cha know about this’ (crazy good).
– tried not to OD on missy but it was impossible. understandably half of the Hottest (and most, ahem, Forward Reaching) went to her, during the Golden Era between 97 to 03. ‘slap! slap! slap!’? ‘lick shots’? ‘slide’? (the most under-appreciated) good half of this is not a test!??
– are some people still talkin about danja doing the dirty work? i hope not.
– clipse come through and steamroll huge beats like ‘put you on the game’ and ray-j’s (really now) ‘unbelievable’ (‘re-up anthem’) into real bangers.
– talking about shock value is obviously pointless, it’s existence doesn’t add to or detract from.
– there were obvious omissions. some had reasons. missing a couple more sparxxx for certain.
– wonder woman remix? say yes remix? big spender? don’t know what to tell ya? yeah.
– jay-z’s reaction when he first hears the 1-second bleep off ‘dirt off your shoulder’.
(is why he had the best ear for beats. until kingdom come, anyway).
– sequencing was given care. not saying couldn’t have been improved. this was a labor of love.
– kelis’ ‘running mate’ is probably a top 10 timbaland beat (no wonder it didn’t get on the album). so is ‘hey papi’, ‘pony’ and ‘resolution’, but you already knooo that.
– …so is the last minute of ‘hit ’em wit’ da hee (remix)’. you know how you looped that shit and slapped it on a tape. 60 minutes of Funk.

Pure Timin’.

holy mothership of all things good and purrre.. (for the year) jona destroyed everyone from ewan pearson to zabiella to dj T to braxe (well) to booka shade to pullen to garnier to h-man, with one of the meanest sets i’ve ever heard. only once who were left standing were robert babicz and ben watt, but hellll. it was like getting hit by waves. wave after wave. one 2 and a 1/2 hour long track that just slung and slung and slung. and slung. jaw drop.

Paper.
