tape was whatever for me. It definitely had some shining moments (Hardknock in particular), but he just isn't really using that to do something creative. Even though it's evident that Joey is a pretty good technical rapper, he rarely deviates from basic rap cliches, which is extremely troubling, because his sound relies almost entirely on a time where if you didn't have something insightful to say, or at least able to present it through a personal/interesting/original perspective, you weren't really much.

IMO, joey just needs time to develop, but that's gonna prove to be hella difficult seeing as how everyone is anxious to go out and discover that next big thing in music.


you make a good point, considering he was really just thrusted into the lime light, he hasn't has time to develop his sound or songwriting properly because of it. I fux with it just because I like listening to people rap well, but he does have growing to do, and it would probably be better for him if he didn't have to do it under a microscope.

you guys sure are some critics son . i feel like people don't know how to appreciate or complement music anymore . of course this nigga needs to grow , he's 17 and this is his first joint he put together . take it for what it is , but that's just me . i enjoy that fact that this is new but i feel like i'm listening to 90's hip-hop again . then again , everyone has their own opinions i guess .

personally i loved how raw it was, but i think people just aren't used to a mixtape actually sounding like a mixtape anymore.

and fuck, everyone loves SUSPECT, it's the only song i skip. i just can't sit through long ass songs, I guess I just don't have the attention span.

Just downloaded 1999 and really feeling the old school vibe and the production. Plus he's only 17 so if Chief Keef just got signed to Interscope then he has to be in with a chance of getting a decent sum for a deal sometime soon.

Just downloaded 1999 and have listened a couple times. This shit is so cool! I love the vintage 90's vibe that is obvious. I dig this kind of funky rap too.

So woke up to MTV2 Sucker Free Countdown and this dude was on there with the number 9 video. IMO I hate these cheap imitation 90s rappers. Though I will say he can rap, I am just tired of the cliche.

Ha.

having bars, actual flow, and at least a somewhat original style completely =/= being a 90s rapper. you're getting actual hip hop confused with "90s rap", along with everyone who's said that in this thread so far. genuine self expression/culture will never be a cliche by the way.

He is by no means the best or as good as hype suggests, but is any artists that generates buzz?

yes he is. and what hype? this kid musically shits on any verse anybody in OF has ever done besides some of earl's maybe, and he has like 1/100th the amount of hype they do, if not less. why even say shit like this when real artists start to get buzz again?

pssshhhh, look I like the kid musically but he doesn't have a quarter of the originality that OF had coming out of the gate. Theres mad cliche elements through the whole project and while its enjoyable the fact of the matter is OF became as important as it did mainly due to the fact that their whole movement really was insular, NOBODY does that style like those dudes and we've seen MANY people try.

Delivery, production sound, lyricism, flow, overall vibe, at its best Odd Future really did completely set a new precedent for all of that shit and while I definitely appreciate 1999 its far from a game changer

All I do is smoke weed, blow lines, and listen to MF DOOM. And rap. http://www.facebook.com/SpacemanNYC

Why are you bringing Odd Future into the argument? Hop off the tip.

1999 was good, nothing amazing but it's smooth listening the whole way through.

Argument, discussion, whatever. And fine, then why is he being compared to Odd Future at all? This isn't directed towards you, by the way.

because we were comparing the levels of Hype between them? Really, this is that hard to follow?

I am pretty sure his style isn't original. His bars are okay not for me as of now. Flow is cool but nothing I will really ride. Fact remains the same him and a slew of worse rappers are riding this 90s train hard.
