[emotiTee] - 2010 Official Discussion Thread

What's good my HB brethrens ! Here's a new line my partners & I created called emotiTee. Basically every image is an emoticon, but we gave each face its own "backdrop" or story so to speak. The first emoticons we're debuting are the "KnockOut" & "TongueOut". Each shirt comes with an explaination for the particular emoticon. We have them available for sale for men & women on our webshop which you can find on our website [URL] While we're only selling t-shirts for the time being, our goal is to expand to polos, sweaters, cardigans, etc. & release more new emoticons in the months to come. We also want to put these shirts in a few boutiques. If you have any questions, feedback, hate mail, etc. please feel free to hit us up at [email]emotiTee@gmail.com[/email]. =O]- [Image]

Crowning Achievements of '07

What were some of the biggest achievements of 2007 so far ? Here is one of mine: 1) "The Roc Back In The Building !" - This is the resurrection moment The Inc., Ruff Ryders, Cash Money, etc wish they had. While some of those cliques I mentioned had a moment where they made noise again (Lil' Wayne), its been more than just ONE artist on Roc-A-Fella making noise ! From Kanye West album "Graduation" being the highest selling rap CD of the year, Jay-Z's "American Gangster" receiving nothing but high reviews from just about everywhere, & Freeway's album "Free At Last" also getting some good reviews. With Beanie Sigel album right around the corner & the signing of Jadakiss, its safe to say that The Roc made the most noise this year.

Albums Plagued By Early "Leaks"

In this day in age, albums get pushed back like no other. It usually because of the first single of the album hasn't gotten the right buzz, confliction between artist under the same record label, or a track or two wsn't able to get a sample clearing. But the biggest reason has to be albums getting leaked to the masses before its release date; also called the "internet leak". There are a few albums that suffer this issue: "I Am...The Autobiography" & "Nastradamus" by Nas, "Vol. 3... Life and Times of S. Carter" by Jay-Z. "Murda Muzik" by Mobb Deep, & "Food & Liquor" by Lupe Fiasco just to name a few. Whereas some record labels tried to release albums early in order to beat the leak at its own game, such as: "God Son" by Nas, "Blueprint" by Jay-Z, & "The Eminem Show" by Eminem. But it seems like the leak is NOWHERE near slowing down. What are some other albums that felt the wrath of the "internet leak" & which ones suffered the most ?

Liner Notes

How many of you actually read the liner notes of the albums you purchase ? Which one(s) is your favorite/most creative ? Any favorite quotes in any liner notes ? Any photos or artwork inside your feeling ? Which one(s) was straight wack ? The most creative one I seen was from "One Day It'll All Make Sense" by Common. Felt like you were reading his autobiography or something. My favorite quote is from "Stillmatic" by Nas: "Shout outs to everyone...keep smilin'...life is pain...get over it. Be happy, fu*k negativity. We kings & queens of the universe, amkers and molders, gods & goddesses. Don't take nobody's sh*t ! Get smart, get started, get money & get high."

Your Favorite Pause Tape

Remember back in the days before rewritable CD's, MP3 players, & file sharing programs you had to wait for your favorite joint to be played on the radio so you could record it onto your cassette ? Ahhh the days of the pause tapes ! What was your favorite pause tape that you made or heard ? Mine was when I had the freestyle with Canibus, DMX, & Noreaga and also the one with The Notorious B.I.G. & The LOX

When Borrowing Turns Into Keeping

You ever let a friend, relative, co-worker, etc. borrow something just to never see it again ? I remember back in '98 I let my younger cousin "borrow" one of few Ralph Lauren Polo shirts I had at the time so he could wear it for dress down day at his school...that was the last time the shirt was in my hands smh

The Alchemist

Production-wise, what do you think about his beats ? I been a fan of his since I first heard "The Platform" by Dilated Peoples. Since I'm a fan for gritty beats, he's always been on my top list of producers every year
