BKNY Mixtape

Posted On Friday, November 19, 2021

I first got put onto to Talib waaaaaaaay back in '98 when BlackStar's debut dropped. And while I loved Mos to def (no pun intended) I just looked at Talib as the other cat in the group. My intern Sha used to literally beat me in the head everyday about how nice Talib was and how I was sleeping on him blah, blah, blah. And then one day something all of a sudden happened...I actually heard Talib. Now, you may be asking, "ummmm  you didn't hear this nigga on the BlackStar album?" And the best way I can explain it is have you ever hear or read a bible verse over and over but then all of a sudden one day it just speaks to you differently? Welp, that's what happend with Talib when I heard Reflection Eternal's "Move Sumthin." I don't know what it was or what I heard differently but all of a sudden Talib went from "that other cat" to be being nice as hell. Now I won't hold you, I've never been a fan of his beat picking skills (not including that 1st Reflection album & the Madlib "Liberation" project) but throughout the 10+ albums/mixtape he's dropped, he's defintely had some BANGERS on tap! So bang out to my BKNY mixtape as a reminder and/or introduction to just how dope Talib is.
