The Source[edit]

The image pages with the archived review copies are from a WordPress blog called THIMK. The recent post for Death Certificate is at this link. The site has many similar posts with copies of reviews by The Source via jpg. images. Dan56 (talk) 22:39, 24 December 2010 (UTC)

Unconstructive editor[edit]

Since you've reverted this editor before, I thought you should know that he's reverted you on Reasonable Doubt. I've had a similar problem with this editor on Illmatic, and tried being civil about talking the matter out. Dan56 (talk) 02:36, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

To editor: why did you delete the Allmusic quote? It's a reliable source. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.61.180.32 (talk) 03:44, 18 August 2011 (UTC)

Reasonable Doubt[edit]

You think having that gigantic table looks less messy than what I did? Look at In My Life Time, Vol 1, Vol 2...Hard Knock Life, Vol 3...Life And Times Of S. Carter..pretty much anyone's album that has sample credits listed. They're all listed the way I changed it to but you only felt it necessary to undo Reasonable Doubt? (13:08, 12 May 2011 (UTC))

And I see you did it to Doe or Die as well but left ALL the other albums alone. The track list table is much easier to read. Why would you want to jumble a table with a crap ton of information. The average user isn't looking for samples, they just want to see a clean track list. (Highbird2010 (talk) 13:08, 12 May 2011 (UTC))

The reason why I "only felt it necessary to undo Reasonable Doubt and Doe or Die" and "left ALL the other albums alone" is because those other pages you listed aren't on my watchlist - therefore I didn't notice (nor do I care about) the changes you made to them.
I disagree that listing an abundance of samples in prose form is "easier to read" as opposed to "a table with a crap ton of information". For albums that have less samples and notes, I don't see anything wrong at all with the simple tracklisting format, but with a lot of these hip hop albums from the '80s/'90s that contain extensive performers, notes, samples, etc. I really don't see why not to use the table. --Blastmaster11 (talk) 23:47, 12 May 2011 (UTC)

I see. Well I'm definitely not up for having a wikipedia internet battle. I guess I won't touch those albums since, somehow, you have the final say on it. But either way, happy editing! (Highbird2010 (talk) 00:45, 13 May 2011 (UTC))

If this is something you feel strongly about, we can start a discussion at the article's talk page (sorry for the late response). --Blastmaster11 (talk) 19:18, 15 May 2011 (UTC)

Miseducation edit[edit]

I'm sorry. I've forgetten about that. But I passed the article again and noticed three maximum ratings. I looked over other reviews with Google News archive search and it seemed to me that at least replacing the USA Today score with Pitchfork would make it reflect the reception a little more accurately. Would that be acceptable? Dan56 (talk) 23:56, 18 August 2011 (UTC)

Help with editor?[edit]

I am having an issue with an editor to Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), who continues to remove certain content, claiming that the content's cited source is unverifiable speculation and he does not agree with it. The editor, 174.24.148.57, claims to be registered user who does not feel the need to sign in. Dan56 (talk) 05:40, 28 September 2011 (UTC)

Comment?[edit]

Hi. Would mind commenting here? An editor has been unreasonable in removing an image in that article, so I have to be the one who finds consensus. Dan56 (talk) 02:26, 7 March 2012 (UTC)

(8-7-'14)[edit]

I provided you with a source for ALL artists, thus far and actually lived through it... With the exception of the beatnuts, you have no latin artist, which contributed and influenced a whole generation of latino youth and made impacts on the culture, thats flat out racists and Im going to keep posting it up as long as you take it down! -Smoggy13

Hi Smoggy13. Where in the MTV source does it say that Kid Frost was a notable artist from the golden age? Secondly, the other websites that you added are on the top hip hop songs from the golden age ... not top artists. Also, these are from user-submitted blogs, and according to reliable sources, blogs aren't adequate. To say "... you have no latin artist [...] thats flat out racists" is utterly asinine. Pulling the race card in situations like this is a brainless cop-out for someone in desperate need of an argument. The notable artists section isn't for people to list their favorites, or artists whom they feel were important - it's for artists who were at the forefront of this era (backed up by reliable sources). If you're gonna edit war and "keep posting it up as long as (I) take it down", then Wikipedia administrators will get involved and I'll have to request a lock on this page. Either get reliable sources, or don't add material ... it's very simple. --Blastmaster11 (talk) 23:10, 7 August 2014 (UTC)

Do Your homework of when kid frost, among the others rappers I have listed, were active and blew up to a major latin audience around the country and then tell me... what era there music was from? When were they active from? The golden Era as its described right here in this section states... "everyone offered something innovative, like every new single re invented the genre" There is a genre called Chicano and Latin which does have a large fan base and following, and every single artists I listed Has pioneered therefore contributing a starting role into the culture. If you know anything about rap, hip hop in general... You'd know kid frost Had a major impact amongst the west coast/gangster rap... and his hit "La Raza" is considered to be one of the first successful latino rap songs and YES a Lighter Shade Of Brown did infact have the first Platinum selling single with "On a Sunday Afternoon", YES before cypress hill and beanuts which you both have listen...So do you research on the genre and follow your sources a little more accurately cause who knows maybe you might you might actually know what your talking about in a future conversation. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Smoggy13 (talkcontribs) 02:52, 9 August 2014 (UTC)

6 Feet Deep[edit]

Hi. I saw you rejected my edition of 6 Feet Deep's years of production. I found this info in the interview with Prince Paul here. He said that they'd started the demo in '91. ("we started the demo in ’91 and the actual album came out in ’94"). He said later they'd been recording it for six months ("Right after we signed the deal it probably took us about six months to record it."), but he also mentioned that "2 Cups Of Blood" had been recorded in 1991 at his house and it hadn't been re-recorded on the album. ("A lot of stuff that you hear on the demo tape is actually on the album. So yeah, “2 Cups Of Blood” was recorded at my house, it was recorded on an 8-track cassette Tascam, I had an SM58 microphone, everything that you hear on that record is low budget and we just mixed it at a decent studio to make it sound good"). To me, if the track was recorded in 1991, we should add information that the album was being recorded from 1991 to 1994 Tashivana (talk) 06:59, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for touching base. --Blastmaster11 (talk) 23:41, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

Banks dispute[edit]

Particularly, I have that issue of RS (cited as source) and he didn't even mention her. Btw, Google only shows "AB salms/blasts KL", tho she didn't get a response. His name shouldn't be there. Cornerstonepicker (talk) 22:38, 23 December 2015 (UTC)

Hi. Thanks for touching base and being civil - no need to edit war here:). Anyways, Azealia went on socail media here and called Kendricks' sediments in a Billboard interview "The dumbest shit I've ever heard a black man say". She even went on to say "HOW DARE YOU open ur face to a white publication and tell them that we don't respect ourselves.... Speak for your fucking self". Kendrick retorted with "I know the history. I'm not talking about that. I'm talking from a personal standpoint. I'm talking about gangbanging". --Blastmaster11 (talk) 23:20, 23 December 2015 (UTC)
But it wasn't a response to her (at least not directly). He received other critics about the song 1 2. Saying "Banks had an online dispute with KL" is incorrect since he didn't acknowledge it, or even online. Cornerstonepicker (talk) 23:42, 23 December 2015 (UTC)
If you go back and read the RS article, that was a response to Azealia's remarks. Also, several of the artists listed in the Azealia Banks controversy section never directly acknowledged her (such as Pharell). I re-worded it though on her page. Hope this helps. --Blastmaster11 (talk) 00:02, 24 December 2015 (UTC)
