Producer & Professor 9th Wonder made some interesting comments on Twitter last night about how he wasn’t feeling the most hyped album in a while.
Thank you God for giving me the ability to listen to music objectively, despite how big the artist is…Lemme tell yall something, I am not a follower, never will be, if something is dope, cool, if not, then cool, but I don’t follow. #STANDTALL. #WTT as a whole is not for me. I can rock with New Day & The Joy. I understand expansion/experimentation in music, but its not for me…..It has nothing to do with samples vs. keys…cause I ROCKS with The Neptunes, Swizz, etc….As a musician/beatmaker/active participant in hip-hop, I want to be SCARED when I hear something, like when I heard Aquemini….It has nothing to with the STYLE of rap, subject matter, NOTHING..its the FEELING for me..u can KILL 50 people in a song as long as it bangs.
If you have an opinion about Watch The Throne as well — whether positive or negative, please leave your thoughts in the comment section.
