Nas! I was just listening to An Andrew Broder (Fog) remix of One Mic. Think of a folkey indie band collaborating w/ Nas. recommended. Look it up.

Is that a Nina Simone sample?

I never sleep, b/c my brain is never bored.

The piano sample sounds a ton like White Magic's version of "Plain Gold Ring"
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 3/30/18 7:07pm Devin B.:

But, I'd defer to you, NGH. Could very well be Nina

The tinnitus ringing out of my ears is so loud it causes hearing damage to people around me.
  Swag For Life Member    Fri. 3/30/18 7:20pm Anthony!:

ok first try on some full headphones like Koss 4As and play your favorite song at the loudest comfotable volume
Avatar    Fri. 3/30/18 7:20pm ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

@Jason Nevermind Agreed! I got my copy of the LP two days ago. It is NICE!
  Swag For Life Member    Fri. 3/30/18 7:22pm Anthony!:

then immediately (it has to be) do the hardest workout you are capable of. go back to said headphones and the ringing should be substantially reduced...if not try step 2 24-48 hours later
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 3/30/18 7:23pm northguineahills:

Wow, Common Sense, what year am I in ?(please take me back there)
Avatar Fri. 3/30/18 7:23pm Billy Jam:

am coming to u from NJ studios of WFMU - but dont feel like talking on mic - the music can speak volumes more + interview that I just recorded an hour ago and edited down with Naru (FKA A Brother Named Quick) talking about his old school buddy Oakland 90s emcee Strong Soul who died 2 days ago in a church in Las Vegas while singing at a funeral - aged only in his late 40s - but as Naru notes - the perfect way to go for one who loved music his whole life -

step two requires patience and this web site

  Swag For Life Member    Fri. 3/30/18 7:26pm Anthony!:

first find the highest tone you are capable of hearing at a moderate volume. it must be moderate
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 3/30/18 7:27pm northguineahills:

@Jason: verdad por el Black Milk.
  Swag For Life Member    Fri. 3/30/18 7:27pm Anthony!:

go 1000 hz higher and listen for 2-3 minutes. do not turn up the volume. you should hear ringing at the freqency your inner ear is damaged
  Fri. 3/30/18 7:28pm DJ4AM:

Woooooooooooo!
Avatar Fri. 3/30/18 7:29pm Billy Jam:

yeah yeah 4AM
  Swag For Life Member    Fri. 3/30/18 7:30pm Anthony!:

play around until you hear the exact freq your ears are damaged. Divide that number by 2. go to that tone and listen at moderate volume for 2-4 minutes. you should not hear ringing. this will last about a week or more.

will try your advice Anthony, the worst result is it can be the beginning of a new composition. Salud!

  Swag For Life Member    Fri. 3/30/18 7:34pm Anthony!:

just play it safe with the volume. but try the workout first
  Fri. 3/30/18 7:35pm DJ4AM:

Many thanks sir! @northguineahills
