    I liked that version of Helpless a lot better live, although it's still one of my least favorite of the tracks I've heard.

    I thought that version of Helpless was disappointingly pedestrian and then, I dunno, does Ja Rule always sound like that?

    I preordered the album and it's now December 2 but it's not letting me download the rest of the album and I am so, so sad.

    He's always had the growly voice but I think it might be shot now.

    Yeah but I've already paid for it and stuff and if it's available now I don't know why it won't let me get the rest of it. :(

    Yeah, I'm just clicking around randomly, but I think I generally like the ones that weren't released earlier a lot more.

    I've listened through the mixtape twice now and I think my favorite tracks are Wrote My Way Out, Congratulations, and Chance's Dear Theodosia.

    Also, my brain refuses to believe that's Jimmy Fallon.

  • Raijin QuickfootRaijin Quickfoot I'm your Huckleberry YOU'RE NO DAISYRegistered User, ClubPA regular
    Why? It clearly sounds like Jimmy Fallon to me.

    Just got through my first two listens as well. For stuff that wasn't already released - I absolutely love the rap section of Say Yes to This, Burn is amazing, and Chance's Dear Theodosia is the surprise of the album for me. With that said, there's only really one track I'm not a huge fan of and that's Jimmy Fallon's, mostly because of the intro. I think if it was just the song I'd probably be far less annoyed by it.

    I'm sure over time they'll all end up growing on me though. I'm slightly obsessed with Burn though, and I haven't really heard of (or didn't realize I'd heard of) Andra Day, is her actual album as good?

    The Jimmy Fallon track is on permaskip for me

    The Jill Scott/Dessa/Andra Day run is real strong. Easily my favorite chunk of the tape. (Though the Andra Day version sounds incongruously... triumphant? It doesn't quite mesh with the lyical tone of the song, but is still musically great)

    The Jimmy Fallon track is fine

    It's the skit at the beginning that sucks

    But really, what would a rap album be without one incredibly lame skit?

    Most rap albums (that I have on my phone at least) separate them like "You'll be Back (Skit)" and then the real track, that way you can hear the song without the crap. But still it's my least favorite track so far.

    I keep listening and can't get over how great the Theodosia Reprise is. And yes, the tone is far more victorious on this version of Burn but holy shit does her telling him he's sleeping in his office give me goosebumps and something about her delivery of "your sentences border on senseless" kills me every time.

    It's something that Sean Kingston has stuck on replay. Something like a melody stuck in his head. Or Shawty.

    Fear not, my friends. There are a few of us in the world, who want a separate thing for our music, and we are not forgotten. Look up the SanDisk Clip line, they're tiny cheap mp3 players with MicroSD slots. However they are very sparse on features that aren't 'playing mp3s.'

    So for somebody who is not a big rap music fan, and only has some vague idea of who these artists y'all are taking about are, will I enjoy this mix tape?
