Again, regarding the Dilla fiasco, it is my opinion that we as bootleggers help share things with others. I am quite the downloader, but I also support the artists I know I like as well as I feel have deserved it for putting out quality stuff. Also, if an artist personally asks you to take his/her stuff down, it's the least you can do to follow their wish, and move on. Kenny Fresh was polite about this situation, and his request was carried out. RIP Dilla.

I'm done, carry on. Have a good day everyone.

- All tracks produced by The Avalanches

In case you're wondering, there are only four tracks for "At Last Alone" because the other five tracks are remixes of The Avalanches' stuff, and the remixes suck. The Avalanches are a group from Australia whose debut CD "Since I Left You" quickly became a hip-hop classic. It also gained fame for it's unheard of use of 1000s of samples. Enjoy.

Top Five Rappers & Producers
So the other day I was sitting in math class bored as hell, when I decided to make a list of my "Top Five Rappers". I was actually sitting at my desk when I was doing this, with my iPod in hand so I could scroll through the list of artists and come up with some names. Right before I even began looking through the artists, I came up with three off the top of my head: Big L, Big Punisher, and Nas. At this point I was like, holy shit, this is gonna be easy. I then came up with a list of other possible candidates for the last two. These candidates were: Rakim, Method Man, AZ, Canibus, and 2Pac. I rationalized that although Method Man was a big player in the game he didn't show enough prowess alone, and Rakim is a legend for sure and it's rumored that he even produced the Eric B. & Rakim stuff but same as Meth, he just hasn't showed his skills outside of his roots (a.k.a. Eric B. & Rakim). Then, I sat there for like, fifteen minutes trying to decide on AZ, 2Pac, and Canibus. I figured that Canibus deserves a spot after Rip the Jacker, Mic Club, etc., and that 2Pac was such a huge part to the game that he couldn't be forgotten.

Top Five Rappers: Nas, Big Punisher, Big L, 2Pac, Canibus

Surprised at how long "Top Five Rappers" took, I figured that with fifty minutes left in class a "Top Five Producers" was worth a shot. Right away, I came up with
four: DJ Premier, DJ Shadow, RJD2, and Pete Rock. I got ecstatic because I thought that this one would take me no time. But oh no. After widdling down my last to pick the fifth producer (I went through ten other producers), I came to two producers: Jay Dee and 9th Wonder. But now I'm fuckin' stuck! I can't decide who is better because they both kick so much ass. So I'm including them both in my list until I can pick one.

Top Five Producers: DJ Premier, Pete Rock, DJ Shadow, RJD2, and Jay Dee/9th Wonder

Hit me up with your "Top Five Rappers/Producers". If you're bored and need something to do, I guarantee this will occupy your time for quite a while.

I copied and pasted the tracklisting from amazon.com, so if the "Listen" links work, then that'd be cool. Let me know if they do or not. Sometimes it pays to preview stuff. Hope everyone had a good holiday.
