    Lol, yeah it was a typo...

    Sadly it got buried with other random posts in LP Chat. The downside of having a Got News thread instead of a forum I guess.

    Only listened to 'Drop', but Mike sounds really like Eminem to me at certain points. Fucking weird as hell to hear him rap like that.

    Part of me hates saying this, but I genuinely like his flow better on Drop than anything on THP. I just really fucking love that faster, more erratic style. :lol:

    You're not alone. I've always loved Mikes more complex style he did in the old days. Wish he'd tap back into that.

    I always wished for more material from this Era and I'm so happy we got 2 more songs. If only Mike ran with this style longer. :p

    I mean, there was a slight resurgence of it on "Its Going Down" and some Renanimation stuff but I never understood why he watered himself down so much on Meteora.

    I feel like we haven't even seen half of what Mike is capable of when it come to rap. The guy could be unreal if he let it all out so to speak.

    Yeah Mike could totally be creating awesome rap stuff if he focused more on this. I really really like a lot of his rapped tracks.

    In the first one Mike sounds like oldschool Eminem. :WTF:
    The second song is way better. it has some High Voltage vibe.

    Fiends is fucking cool.

    And Mike can rap so good. What a flow in Drop. Man, that's awesome.

    I'm happy and sad right now. Those songs make me miss the first years of the band. I love this Mike's energy, that's why i wanted to be like him when i was young.

    I was not going to say i want a new HT, but fuck that...i do.

    It's super cool to hear stuff like this, makes me wonder how long we can get unreleased LP tracks lol. I guess there are still some album cycles that we've heard relatively little from, so there's bound to still be some gems they haven't released.

    Just renamed all the Fiends references to just 'Fiends'. Looks like it features a rapper named 007 which is shown on the back of the album cover, though the Discog tracklist just says Xero. My hip-hop knowledge isn't up to know who 007 is. Only dude I can find is Andre Barnes from 5th Ward Boyz.

    I believe Emcee 007 was on a Styles of Beyond track: "Spies Like Us." May not be the same guy but it probably is.

    Also I feel like this could've been inspired by Em. Remember Mike said he heard of Em before he blew up.
