Default I Rip It Hardcore Like a Hip Hop Album Club

Those who want to participate should suggest albums they would like considered for homework assignment and then that suggestion is included in the upcoming thursday poll.

In order to get people to vote for your suggested album, you should include a little information about it and perhaps some album art to pique people's interest!

Don't worry about committing yourself. You can join once, then never do it again or join every other week or whenever you want. You can vote, suggest and not discuss, anything goes.
I was thinking we'd skip the voting and people would just sign up to do an album. First come first served. To start things off...

Earl Sweatshirt "Earl"

More of a rough demo than an album, 16 year old Earl Sweatshirt delivers a sick, funny and creative release (produced by Tyler, the Creator, also of Odd Future fame.) Many people have called him (and his Odd Future brethren) the future of hip hop, and with such talent at such a young age it's easy to see why.

PM me if you need assistance locating this album.

I'll give this dude a shot, if I can find his album. I've been hearing about this young crew. I don't think I'm going to care for it, but I'm open to try it before I make an opinion.

I think it's cool you throw up an album suggestion but we probably should stick to Tore's format or similar and throw up a poll for next album. Or we can piece it together first. Cuz I don't have Earl yet.

I'm going to be very active in this thread if it works. Or if it doesn't.

I'll be up for this one, although I like prog the club for it seems to never choose things I'm a big fan of. Downloading now.

I really dig this album. Everything sounds pretty rough, but dudes got nice flow and he says some pretty crazy stuff.

PS is it ok for me to post the link to the album download?

I don't know how cool that is with the moderators anymore, I know we use to but got wicked paranoid about the RIAA. Anyway,

This album isn't as strong as Tyler, the Creator's release but it still holds a special place in my heart. Like abearmauledme said it's rough, but I have a special heart for lo-fi music and demos so that's part of the appeal to me. I think it's funny and at the same time very uncomfortable - which is something I like in music.

I'd rather run it in a way where all the clubbers sign up to suggest an album, that way it's a bit more fair to everyone because I think it'd be mad lame if someone ended up suggesting an album but never got there's picked. It'd make them want to quit, plus I think this would work better since there's less of us.

On that note who wants to sign up to post the next album?

Ey, I've fixed that by always including the album in every poll until it is picked

Anyways, to Abearmauledme, no album download links on the forums please!
