Laziest line-up so far. Sure Redman, cool. EPMD, you can see them a couple times a year in NY. Pusha T - not bad but still. Given all the new talent based in NYC now, this could have made such a more meaningful impact.

It ain't hip hop without Kanye, y'all slaves.

Disappointing. When Pusha T is your biggest name you know it's not the best. Chance the Rapper is where its at

How Jay Electronica get in a NOI uniform is puzzlingly and then drops the N word and F bombs numerous times. Times have changed. Something is up with this, I got a feeling there is some muscle flexing toward the "elite", Jay and Jay are in some sort of fight for survival with them so they need to channel power from what know but aren't true to (ie 5%, NOI). Electronica not NOI and JZ not 5%, but they need their energy or what they perceive to be power. It must be frustrating and demoralizing have half a billion and not being able to effect change no more than when he didn't have it.
