With all the sequels to classic hip-hop albums being released and planned lately, this one actually doesn’t come as much of a shock. That doesn’t mean that I didn’t nearly spew water all over my monitor when I read that Liquid Swords 2 will be “produced by The Abbot.” Can he possibly mean the whole album? Even Rae only got 3 tracks for OBFCL2. If he means what I hope he does, there’s no reason why GZA’s next album shouldn’t be able to top what Rae accomplished last September. According to RZA himself, LS2 drops this fall.
Here’s the first track off of the new mixtape by Dave Sitek of TV on the Radio and funny person Aziz Ansari (aka Raaaaaaaandy). Why are they angry? Apparently no one sent them verses for their mixtape? Who are they angry at? How about Cudi, Jay-Z, Luda, Drake, Clipse, Mos Def, Kanye and MF Doom. Biggest surprise? Aziz does a pretty good Marshall Mathers double-time rap (my wife even asked “Why are you listening to Eminem this early in the morning?”)
