i've listened to square fucker all of it! and it didnt hit me on any level and if something doesn't move me on the first listen i rarely give it another chance,thats just me. whats wrong with diversification? not a damn thing my friend,but just because its diverse doesn't mean i have to like it, sorry i dont roll that way. i always try to distance fans from the artists but a large % of buck65 fans always seem to be indie-rock wankers who know shit about shit and it really gets on my nerves and that unfortunatley plays a role in my opinion of him,albeit no a big one.
it reminds me of a house jam i was asked to play at.it was a u of t jam and the minute i walked in the door all i could see was a sea of indie rockers and culture jamming nimrods.some joker was on the decks rolling through the typical stones throw,mo wax set,which i didnt mind cuz i love that shit-but i wasn't gonna play any that night.when my set arrived i started out with steely dans 'peg' a few heads recognized but most were lost,i didnt care i proceeded to roll into some tom tom club,into some sugarhill gang,through a lesson mid-eighties classics with some obscure rock,funk and pop tracks thrown in here and there.i eventually wound up playing nineties big tracks(black sheep,das,beatnuts etc. etc.) then some fucking weak looking bitch comes up and asks if he can play some 'real' hip-hop' and has the buck 65 square album in his hand,i looked at him said 'whatever' and put the kool keith 'panties' that i was about to play back in my bag and bounced the fuck out.
well...your opinion I guess but a narrow minded one...and square DID move me, not on first listen but over time, that's the best way to get into buck...his shit can reach over time so don't rule that oue ...I LOVE most hip hop so im sayin this as a fan of hip hop's ways of getting others to enjoy what it has to offer and buck is one of those cats who does that with every release...AND what's wrong with putting on buck after a keith tune?
BTW he's our best hip hop export next to the dude from main source and K-os so EASE UP!...I'll laways have respect for buck65
