Just heard probably the worst case of brickwalling.  DJ Quik song "Funny How Niggas Gone Change Things", when the bass drops, it's so loud it actually distorts the song!  I've never heard mastering that bad.  I've never heard something so loud on a professional recording it actually distorts the vocals.  Wow.  Even an amateur like myself knows not to do that!

New group with Everlast called Warporn.  He's dropped the guitar and back to hip hop (thankfully, that singing was getting stale).  Free mixtape:

Can someone please explain to me why Kanye West is considered a musical genius? Don't get me wrong, I like his music, but I don't see how sampling songs by other artists requires much talent and it seems most of his songs were co-written and co-produced with like a dozen other people.

There are all levels to this, like what Kanye did on POWER, or the insanity that Endtroducing... and Since I Left You are, being all sampled - mostly the last one, since it seems to have around a thousand samples or more.

I'm into A Tribe Called Quest lately, especially The Low End Theory.
