The Weeknd (Official Thread)

Does anyone know who is on the production?

Illangelo and Doc Mckinny.

Man this tape is fucking dope. A lot better than I expected smokeyfacesmokeyface

Overall it's good, his voice is kind of hard to make out sometimes. Like the beats overshadowed his voice at some points, but he came correct.

I agree. I can barely hear what he's saying in Lonely Star.
August 19, 2011 @ 02:16:16
lonely star, life of the party - ehhhh

thursday, the zone - alright

the birds p. 1, rolling stone, gone, heaven or las vegas - illy

overall: good, but not HOB.

House of Balloons was alright to me. Thursday is better. Still, I can tell the Weeknd is gonna blow up, even more so than now. I got love for this cause. &)

Gone is the standout track in this one imo. Great song smokeyface
August 19, 2011 @ 07:59:08
defs agreeing with Gone standing out, and HOB being better than Thursday. The two have completely different approches I think, from beats to lyrics. Overall, I enjoyed HOB more than Thursday, but Thursday has some good tracks..Gone, Zone, Bird pt.2

Downloading now, finally smokeyface

You can hardly hear what Drake is saying. Background is way higher than the vocals. But this tape is dope.
August 19, 2011 @ 10:48:23
gone is the best imo

zone sucks to me the rest of it is very solid
August 19, 2011 @ 11:45:28
No bull I was more hyped for this than I was for WTT. Downloaded it last night but was too tired to give it a listen. About to start the first playthrough now smokeyface

House Of Balloons >>>>>>>>>> Thursday

Thursday just seemed like a lot of unfinished or throw away tracks. There was way to much mumbling also. Thats just my opinion.
August 19, 2011 @ 12:29:57
August 19, 2011 @ 13:45:23
the zone is the illest track on thursday
August 19, 2011 @ 14:34:50
Finished first playthrough a little while ago, and it's pretty much what everyone said, HOB was better but Thursday still didn't disappoint. Banging tracks for me were Lonely Star, Thursday, Gone, and Heaven Or Las Vegas. I thought Heaven Or Las Vegas was dope as hell, probably my favorite on the album.
August 19, 2011 @ 14:46:30
I really enjoyed "Gone". I never liked the fact that all his songs are like 5-8 minutes long. A bit much for me.
August 19, 2011 @ 15:09:35
IMO the mixtape was type boring. HOB was better as everyone has stated. the best songs to me are
the zone
the birds part 1
rolling stone
August 19, 2011 @ 18:18:13
the birds part 1 smokeyface
August 19, 2011 @ 18:40:07
Birds part 1 has been out for a while :| but shit, this mixtape should come equipped with a fucking condom because it raped my ear drums. Fucking can't wait for Echos of Silence &)&)
August 19, 2011 @ 19:03:04
Still don't know what the big deal is about The Weeknd.....but I guess I probably need to hear some tracks. Probably wont tho
August 19, 2011 @ 19:08:08
House of Balloons and Thursday are both dope in their own ways.
August 19, 2011 @ 19:13:17

I'm on my second playthrough now and the scary part is I think these are his filler tracks.
August 19, 2011 @ 19:16:14
He does a lot of "falsetto" in this mixtape which is probably why so many people aren't feeling it, but the production is just as good or even better imo.
