Dre has been working on Detox for a DECADE (WTF Dre!?) and they say that even though he had multiple strokes (which led to left side body paralyzation) and a heart attack over the last 4 years, his voice was unaffected. So I hope he had a few tracks on Detox and his profits go to his family ti help pay for all his medical bills and family futures.

I have J Cole's album although given how unmoved i am with his music (being a talented vocalist doesn't mean you have the energy to keep my attention)... its just sitting here. Still.

Should i?

Um, if you're looking for excitement and intensity, then you're gonna want to look elsewhere. Depending on how much you've listened to him previously, there will be a couple tracks you've heard before. J. Cole is a lyricist at heart, and most of his songs are slowed down to help him articulate his thoughts. Word play is good. No club bangers to speak of. Still a good album, but it could be a matter of taste.
TVman is dead. I killed him and took his posts.

I never did get into J Cole, but did accidentally stumble onto Phonte and i'm glad i did. Unlike many around him (even Drake, who seems to have developed himself off Phonte), he raps with clarity ad sings really well and talks about topics that are quite humble - his 2018 album he spoke about the death of his father, trying to lose weight and getting married.

It's sad how he hasn't blown up compared to other - less talented and versatile - rappers, but his output has been nothing short of fantastic.

It was Ego that, for me cemented him as someone who can both sing and rap rather than just jump between one or the other.

Yes! No News is Good News is a classic! If you don't know Little Brother, that was a rap duo he was in some time ago and they got back together for an album last year.  Check it out if you haven't!

Phonte specializes in what I call "grown man raps".  He's similar to Black Thought, but with less intensity.

Speaking of Black Thought, please check out Streams of Thought vol 1 & 2, if you haven't!

Can you edit the links in?

https isn't supported, so it doesn't show up on my computer.

I really need to try the Little Brother album. I've been listening to the Pacific Time EP quite a lot lately.

This aint about Hip Hop or Rap, but about Indie Music and I didn't want to look for a make a general music thread.....

I don't know who knows what Bandcamp is, but they apparently provide a place for the indie music producers to sell their stuff online.

Well, it appears that in the face of the COVID-19 Pandemic, they have decided to waive all fees and send all proceeds directly to said artist this Friday.

https://daily.bandcamp.com/features/bandcamp-covid-19-fundraiser

So if you have a favorite band, and you've been meaning to purchase some of their albums, now would be a good time to do so and either save a little money or have the artist get all the proceeds instead of a slice going to the distributor.
