When he came through OKC in 2006, Saul Williams was his opener. The crowd wasn't that into him, but the end result was Niggy Tardust, so ultimately worth it for Saul hopefully.

I'm pretty sure this song should be called "Kwame"

Oh fully agreed there. I wouldn't have even known it was her (assuming it is) without someone telling me.

The stuff I've been reading is that Gaga is uncredited on it, which isn't mutually exclusive with having Anna Wise on there (and Tom seems to confirm that it's her above).

"That’s something else impressive: Kendrick’s MC Eiht collaboration made it onto the album, and his Lady Gaga collab didn’t." I realize it isn't "Partynauseous" but Lady Gaga is on the album as the female voice in "Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe".

Wait, so was the whole verse dissing Nas not performed the first time Jay-Z did "Takeover" at Summer Jam?

Saying the Spurs are "about as fun to watch as linear regression" is such an obnoxious way to say "I didn't watch any Spurs games this year." (and I'm a Thunder fan)

By "game-changing" you mean a new low in modern minstrelsy, right?

Can you guys have a Deconstructing column on why Tom loves bellowing, proudly-ignorant rap (NTTAWWT)?

Hip-Hop has come so far. It used to be that only men were allowed to make shitty misogynistic songs with obnoxious beats. This song is a true feminist victory.

This is great! I always wanted to hear what Drake's ghostwritten verses that couldn't make the cut for a Wayne album sounded like!

What's really laughable is the idea that Childish Gambino and Drake made albums that were better than mediocre, much less the two best in their loosely defined genre.

Now I'm curious what you thought about Cold Day In Hell since I figured that was the obvious choice for MotW.

Re: Seattle’s rap landscape It will not surprise you to find that Seattle has a good set of backpack rappers (although obviously how you feel about backpack rap in the first place is a separate question) but if you're interested, check out Macklemore, Blue Scholars, and Common Market. Other than a certain degree of cleverness though, there doesn't seem to be a ton of overlap with their work and Nacho's work. Also, I'd like to add that I enjoy this series and hope that Stereogum keeps it going.

In the off-chance their blog doesn't cover it, he put out a nice little album called Before Taxes and Mello Music Group will email singles from him (and other people that you'd probably like if Diamond District/Oddissee turn your crank) if you join their list.

For only a 1.5% owner, Jay-Z is definitely getting a big return on his investment in terms of publicity

Yeah that culture of disrespect is a big problem. Always hearing people say things like "Only when it’s on while your mother is on my dick." or "This bitch gets way too much press for someone who has one Pitchfork-approved single." Thank you Michael_ for delivering us from such inane commentary and guiding the site in such a positive direction. Your sacrifice in the comment above mine will not go unnoticed. May your martyrdom free us all from a comment section polluted with trolling and insults.

I'm surprised to see Stereogum covering him since Okayplayer is probably an epithet around these parts, but definitely happy. He's produced a lot of good to great albums in a sort period of time (with Diamond District and Traveling Man as standouts) and deserves a bigger audience than he has.

All those pictures you see are song titles. If you click on them or click play, it will show my thoughts. The Spanish DarkChill scene is more authentic because it realizes that writing things is just selling out to your brain and societal expectations. Images are the purest medium of communication and therefore I must use the language of the (now played out) scene while other music blogs wallow in the muck of written language.

Everyone who comments and writes here is facking queeah and their taste in music is terrible. LOOK AT ME!! [Tugs on editor's pigtails] GUUUUUUUYS Pay attention to me! hahahahaha gotcha. Now check out my music blog that is totally unique because I am intellectually superior to you. Are you into the Spanish DarkChill scene? You're not? I'm sure you guys will be into it when GvB, BV, and Pitchfork fist it into your 10th-day-of-the-cleanse hipster rectums, you sheeple. I've already soured on it but I decided to make a website celebrating that bitterness. Check it out: www.limonparty.org

" struck full gale force as Jay fired “Takeover” at Nas’s “Ether" "Takeover" was released months earlier, so really "Ether" would be the one firing at "Takeover".

I'll bet the producers wish it was Nas that picked these beats. Then they'd at least get paid.

They (Kanye or the lawyers or whomever) offered the featuring credit to the Redding estate when they were doing sample clearance.

Thinking it is one thing. Rising to national (internet?) prominence based on saying offensive shit and having every critic jerk you off over some occasionally original music is another.
