9th Wonder & Young Guru Assess Kendrick’s Claim To The Throne

August 14, 2013 · Posted in Videos · Comment 

Kendrick done started a riot.

In a culture where attention spans shrink by the minute, the current most talked about verse in hip hop is still at the epicenter of the dialogue…and it looks like it’s stayin there for at least another minute.

Yesterday at a private listening event for 9th Wonder‘s protege Rapsody, 9th and Young Guru assessed Mr. Lamar‘s claim to the hip hop throne on his “Control” verse, and what it means for emcees in his league.

Take a look at their conclusions up top.

Young Guru Says Jay-Z Is 4 Songs Deep Into Next Solo Album

March 13, 2012 · Posted in news · 2 Comments 

Continuing his talk with Complex, Young Guru reveals 15 things you didn’t know about Jay-Z, all of which are very interesting. I recommend you check the article out. Apparently, Jay religiously watches YouTube freestyles, and L.A. Reid forced him to rush Kingdom Come. Anyways, Guru also revealed that Jigga is already 4 songs deep into his next album, but work has stopped since the birth of B.I.C.

There are maybe four songs so far and most of them are spill over. I don’t wanna say spill-over like they’re throw-aways from Watch The Throne. It’s an incredible beat coming on and Jay being like, ‘No that’s for my album. Hold that one, it’s for me.’ So the ones that were made so far, the beats were made during the Watch The Throne time.

“Now we’re adding on to it, but we haven’t gone back in. We had all this touring stuff. It was the end of the year and we were doing shows. Then the baby came. We literally went in to do the song for Blue Ivy and he hasn’t been back since. He’s definitely enjoying daddy mode right now.”

Young Guru Talks About New Jay-Z Album & ‘Watch The Throne 2′

March 6, 2012 · Posted in news · 1 Comment 

Jay-Z’s favorite audio engineer sat down with the folks over at Complex, and talked about Jay-Z’s new solo album, and the possibility of a Watch The Throne 2. Excerpts below.

On Jay-Z’s upcoming solo album:
“Jay-Z is always working on stuff, it’s a concept that I can’t talk about but I’m marveled at how smart this guy is. When he told me the concept, I was like ‘Why didn’t I think of that?’ It was just so simple. It’s not a concept album though. It’s not like American Gangster, it’s not a Beatles concept album. It has a concept and a title, and the title and the concept fit him so well that people are going to be like ‘Wow.’”

“I like certain writers because it takes me 8,000 paragraphs to get my full point across. When somebody can take what I just said and condense it into two sentences and still have the same effectiveness, that’s a good writer. The simplicity of the title and the concept that it conveys is incredible.”

“I can’t tell you the title, it’s so good it’s like, ‘Oh my god why didn’t I think of that? What made you think of that and why haven’t we done that before?’ It’s just staring us in the face all these years, we could’ve been put that out as an album concept.”
