I hadn't heard of him either. He's pretty terrible. I randomly saw a reference to the fracas on the Genius homepage when it happened and it sent me down a rabbit hole.

Technically, if you play a live cover you need to have performing rights which you can license from a Performing Rights Organization. I say technically, because I'm not sure how much this is enforced. I mean, technically, you're supposed to have a permission from a PRO if you play music at you're place of business. Really, the person responsible for attaining these rights is the venue, not the artist too. If you're going to record a cover song you need a mechanical license, which a copyright holder can refuse to allow you (in most instances). So long story short, unrecorded live covers are probably okay.

I'd probably include "A Short Reprise for Mary Todd, Who Went Insane, But for Very Good Reasons" just because I've loved that song title since the first time I heard Illinois.

"John Wayne Gacy" always seemed a little too "songs to cut yourself too" for my taste. I like, I guess. "Jacksonville" on the other hand...

I imagine that they will. Most lawyers instruct their clients not to discuss pending litigation with the press.

Hey, give him some credit. He is also the gold standard for ugly dudes dreaming of marrying women waaaaaay out of their league.

But as soon as "Costa Concordia" hits my ear... I kinda lose my mind, yeah.

Is there any indication that Troy Ave was targeted because of that Joey BADA$$ diss track that Troy released a couple months ago? Troy was kinda pushing the line with that one. Context: Troy included verses attacking Capital STEEZ, a BADA$$ affiliate who killed himself by jumping off a roof at the age of 19. "Cause I'm a savage, this gon leave you sad bitch / Don't get suicidal like ya friend, here's a casket / Steez burning in Hell, my burner's in my belt / I'm really killing shit, you niggas killing yourself / Fucking weirdos, off the roof, "Steer clear yo!" / This niggas tryna fly, he think he a superhero / Splat man! Fuck you and that man"

I'm not saying she isn't entitled to feel sad or even to personally interpret any song in the matter she chooses. However, her use of a protest song about a wrongfully accused person with a hopeful yearning for vindication as part of legal and PR battle with her record company is cheap and solipsistic.

Yeah, if the stuff she alleges is true, she's had a pretty tough road to becoming a famous millionaire. I too yearn for the day when I shall be released to be the rich celebrity I want to be, on my own terms. (I'm not saying she doesn't have legitimate grievances. I'm saying she's not Nelson fucking Mandela. If she yearns for freedom so desperately she could quit or buy out of her contract.)

And Tolstoy was a rich aristocrat who nonetheless wrote movingly about the universal human experience. Who gives a shit? There's a fundamental difference between an artist saying "life is hard" and an artist saying "my life is hard."

Looking forward the Kesha's new single of "We Shall Overcome" though. That cover of "Biko" on the B-Side will be amazing.
