The long awaited debut album from the heavyweight mc unit that is RHYME ASYLUM is finally available, having heard a sneak peak of this a while I ago I can tell you all that its certainly worth the wait and worth picking up; the album features Diabolic, Copywrite and Reain; not only this but you're gettin an album full of sick beats courtesy of ldbb league entrant LEATHERFACE, with an extra beat and co-production coming from other league heads S-TYPE and BUDGIE (respectively)..so umm yeah...GO COP THAT...
Gettin into the last quarter of the league now!, here are the matchups for week 9.
Week 9 Matchups Prolifik vs N!K Sivey vs Purpose Kelakovski vs Shears Ceerius Productions vs Urban Midnight DJ SnapS vs Pinnacle Eyebs vs Mr Dick R2ThaBeatz vs Like Mike Budgie vs S-Type Pataphysics vs Just Jay Darren Paul vs Raul Supreme Billy Bones vs Kosyne Joe Davies vs Wizard At Will Dockmini vs Adequate Jon Phonics vs Jaisu Kanzo vs Archimedes Phocus vs Kryptonite Jekay vs Apatight Wizard vs Leatherface Ed Strong vs Lotek Terror vs Prophet
If you don't know about Skillz' (aka Mad Skillz from back in the day) ill debut From Where??? I suggest you track it down (*cough* props to Cro!!) its from the defuct Big Beat label from back in '96. Anyway the production list was immense and in this interview Skillz & DJ Source go over the finer points, its deffo worth a read..
Earth, and Ironman, just to name a few. Yet amongst all these heavyweights, there was a worthwhile album that many overlooked. It featured a much hyped newcomer and an all star production team that featured The Beatnuts, Buckwild, Clark Kent, EZ Elpee, J Dilla, Large Professor, and Shawn J. Period.
The album was Skillz (formerly Mad Skillz) debut From Where??? Skillz, who many now associate with ghostwriting and year end wrap ups, came in with an original, varied effort that featured songs complete with memorable punch lines and hard-hitting battle raps. Despite a few misfires, the now out of print album proved to be a very strong rookie effort. Between several classic beats and creative lines like, “I came alone, draggin bags of bones, slit my own wrists, and bleedin’ out microphones”, Skillz created something TSS considered worthy of a Reconstruction...........
I think we're back again...a good indication to if the site is working is the leaderboard to your right..you see that go down we're in trouble.ANYYYYYWAY the tech homie Douglas (lol) from Brinkster has moved the ldbb site to a different server; turns out they were having database problems that affected us but no one decided to reach out and tell us.
Should be sorted now as I had a good mess around with it last night and the things I did to it previously (check the leaderboard, old weeks beats) that caused it to fall over arent happening now..so FINGERS CROSSED!.
Week 7 Matchups N!K vs Sivey Prolifik vs Kelakovski Purpose vs Wizard Shears vs DJ SnapS Urban Midnight vs Eyebs Terror vs R2ThaBeatz Kid Eight vs Just Jay Like Mike vs Mazzie Jaisu vs Darren Paul Budgie vs Apatight Joe Davies vs Raul Supreme Richie Rukz vs Dockmini Wizard At Will vs Jon Phonics Adequate vs Kanzo S-Type vs Phocus Archimedes vs Pataphysics Kosyne vs Mr Dick Ed Strong vs Leatherface Billy Bones vs Pinnacle Kryptonite vs Lotek
Week 6 beats are live so head over to the site to commence voting, keys are hmmm still available; guess im weary in case anything breaks but eff it...yeah holla at us on the forum.
Aite, so I havent got a clue on whats going on with the league site.
At first I thought it was a database issue with too many records in the points table, every time someone hits the "Submit Scores" button, we store that entry in the database and currently we're at 3645 records (which isnt that much)..but it looks like the problem is deeper than that..
Anyway we've got the techincal support guys at the web host on it and im told they'll be sorting it this morning (american morning for what its worth)..
In the background im still uploading beats and samples for week 6/7 so hopefully we can roll over today still..
