Rick Ross: God Forgives, I Don’t (Mediafire download leak)

It took a while to get this album leaked, but now Rick Ross album “God forgives I don’t” has finally hit the net.

 

It’s out on Mediafire, a torrent and a Rapidshare link. You can see the “evidence” of the leak below, as this is a picture of the complete CD version which has been ripped. And all I can say, this album deserves the attention it has been getting. I thought NAS album was going to be hiphop record of the year, but now with Rick Ross – I’m not so sure. God forgives I don’t is a return to form for the man. This is the normal version and doesn’t include the iTunes exclusive tracks or whatever.

Enjoy fellow Rick Ro$$ fans.

Frank Ocean: channel ORANGE Mediafire

The debut album from Frank Ocean has leaked as a Mediafire, Rapidgator and Sharebeast download. The guy has been surrounded with a lot of controversy since his blog post, talking about his sexuality. But really, who cares about that? This album is the thing which matters and it hit the internet yesterday night during Jimmy Fallon. Enjoy this fine download.

I’m pretty disappointed. Nostalgia, Ultra was pretty near AOTY for me; this is just an unfocused mess. 2/3 of the album sounds like an extended interlude. Thinking of You, Lost, and Forrest Gump are the only notable tracks in my opinion.

I’ve often found myself confused as to how Nostalgia, Ultra became so highly regarded. Swim Good and Novacaine are really the only standout songs on there and practically everything else was just him singing over a well known instrumental. What was good on that mixtape was really good but there was no way I could have listened to that mixtape and had enough original material to be able to reach a fair assessment of his potential.

I think nostalgia was just showcasing his talent and songwriting. CO is where he tries to create his own vibe with his production selection, he seems to be more adventurous/outgoing with his lyrical content on a few songs on this album, like his coming-of-age.

I only finished my first listen through on this but the production is incredibly tight, smooth, and not overbearing and he’s exploring a lot of interesting themes lyrically. I feel that it’ll only get better with repeat listens.

50 Cent: FIVE (Murder by Numbers)

The master returns. It’s 50 Cent fifth album, simply titled FIVE – Murder by numbers. It’s one of those albums which needs some time, but man it’s a return to form for the rapper. Interscope hasn’t given this album any kind of promotion, which kind of sucks. Let’s hope it gets some spotlight when it hits downloads in early July.

This is a download leak of FIVE and contains all of the album tracks.

I feel for 50 when he had the single I’m on it leaked last year, and I get that he blames the label for it. But now that the complete album has leaked, there are still no promotion made for the album. It’s a blank. Well, hope you guys enjoy the album and be sure to check out the other links.

This will be his official sixth release. This is his first album the he produced completely on his own. Some of the sounds are similar; you can hear that he is venturing into a new direction with his music.

This rapper can use his abilities with music to touch and even get his fans excited about the messages he sends.  He will be playing in many of the states this year and into the next.

This is one of the most unique and original sounds available in today’s music world. Aesop Rock has been spending the last two years actively tour and rocking out almost every night with new and old fans.

If you haven’t heard of his music, this is definitely the album to start you out. His fans seem to follow him wherever he goes. He always has time to stop and say hello and sign an autograph or two. There have been a few times that he has opened up for other large bands. However, his fans want him to be the IT band all the time. You can listen to his music and feel his soul at times. He definitely works his music into a fine art. Enjoy the Skelethon download!

While, the band states that Living Things, is the music obtained from the combination of all their four previous albums. Lastly, they also stated they were “contented in [their] own casing” and in “familiar province” and subsequent to years of improvisation that gave room to their previous albums  in their two previous studio albums, Minutes to Midnight in 2007 and A Thousand Suns in 2010.

Shabazz Palaces: Black Up | Review

Artist: Shabazz Palaces
Album: Black Up
Year: 2011
Genre: Hip Hop

 

Right from the opening track “Free Press and Curl” this album grabs you, a heavily effect riddled beat opens gradually and goes in 3 different directions and grows as the song goes on, the first transition drops around 2 minutes and adds a melodic female vocal looping to the beat along with heavier electronic rendering, around 3 minutes the beat trails off and picks back up slowly with a more chilled out heavy bass sound. But enough about the beat, Shabazz has a unique flow and wordplay which matches all three settings nicely even during the hook which reminded me more of a purple rap track like those we’re hearing more and more of and I’m not taken on most.

Onto “An Echo From The Hosts That Profess Infinitum”, this might be enough to sell most people right here a reversed loop in the background make this one of the filthiest beats I’ve heard in a while and I was definitely feeling it. This is definitely a banger but comes to the table with a whole different feel than the traditional hot track on an album feel. This track also grows as the track goes on and transitions towards the end, this again does not take away from the sick entirety of the track. Shabazz again comes strong, call me crazy but the wordplay on this track reminded me somewhat of Vast Aire wordplay.

 

[quote]Probably closest to a hip hop beat “Are You… Can You… Were You?” heavy strings over piano make for a good combo, Shabazz’ hook on this one gets a little annoying but doesn’t disappoint on main verses.[/quote]

 

Next up “A Treatease Dedicated To The Avian Airess From North East Nubis (1000 Questions, 1 Answer)” it was like a ghetto love story by an astronaut on acid beat had a outta this world in a 1950s space movie feel to it. Definitely feeling this track.

“Youlogy” starts like an interlude for about 20 seconds before slapping you in the face with bass and hard lyrics. Takes a jazzy feel about halfway through, and finishes just as it started with a glitchy hard beat and more.

This track carries an interlude feel up until about the last quarter “Endeavors For Never (The Last Time We Spoke You Said You Were Not Here. I Saw You Though)”. Immagine jazz undertones and smooth smoke filled lounge singer vocals, although it’s not a track that Shabazz comes out on until the end still a sick track. The production on this album is definitely unique.

“Recollections Of The Wraith” opens with Shabazz droppin a quick verse over a drum sample and goes into what’s probably my favorite track on the album. It’s been driving me nuts what the samples from but reminds me of a slowed down distorted version of a 90s pop or rnb singer. This track suffers from what is the only downside to this album is the sometimes overly repetitive hooks but the beat and lyrics again save it from downplaying the overall feel.

 

 

A choppy start on “The King’s New Clothes Were Made By His Own Hands” was just enough to not take away from the track, and again the beat grows as the track goes on. The shortest track on the album at 2:07 this one seemed just right as it wasn’t necessarily a banger but a psychedelic journey track. The only thing I can recently compare this to would probably be Jeremiah Jae

Least favorite on the album “Yeah You” wasn’t necessarily a bad track but the distortion on the vocals was a little much for me. It sounded like he was under water with the heavy flanger effects. Other than that lyrics were fire like the rest of the album, and beat seemed a quicker pace which wasn’t a bad thing. Wish this were tossed in as a remix and there was an original without the flanger effect.

And wrapping up with “Swerve… The Reeping Of All That Is Worthwhile (Noir Not Withstanding)”, which in my opinion was a strong finish for the album. Beat which remains the same up until the end outro beat, is arguably one of the best on the album that showcases more female vocals and electronic effects. Lyrics are again spaced out, to some might be thrown off but I like the wordplay.

In closing you’re either going to love or hate this. I would recommend at least giving it a listen to figure out for yourself though.
