Was it the Tallahatchie Bridge? Cause that's one enigmatic motherfucker of a bridge.

Christ on a stick, is your argument is really "think of the child?" You realize the alternative is that she doesn't exist, right?

December 8, 2016 on 73-Year-Old Mick Jagger Becomes A Dad Again
No single trait guarantees someone being a capable father. Mick Jagger is a pretty fucking bright guy. He's been around the block a few times. He probably knows what he's getting himself into. He's more successful than you and I will almost assuredly ever be. He has assured that his grandchildren will probably never have to work a real job. It's weird that you feel compelled to question his right to procreate.

1. 3 Stacks on "Solo (Reprise)" 2. 3 Stacks on "Kids" 3. 3 Stacks on "Decemba" (haven't heard it, but it's 3 Stacks, so I'm certain it's great) Honorable mention to Thugga's verse on "Mixtapes"

This is my heart bleeding for that unfortunate rich-as-fuck infant who has to shoulder the heavy burden of being not only a millionaire, but a millionaire who inherits the social cache of being Mick Jagger's kid. He's a real modern-day Oliver Twist.

I know we like making fun of Rolling Stone for including the new Stones album in their year-end top 10, but Blue and Lonesome is kinda really good. If you like England's Newest Hitmakers, there's no reason you won't like this. And Mick sounds pretty great. After hearing the album, you won't be too surprised that he's still firing live shots at 73.

In the Academy's defense, "Daddy Lessons" doesn't say anything about trains, or trucks, or prison, or getting drunk. Rules are rules.

Man, watching that reminds me how laughing at out of touch, holier than thou, emotionally unstable, white people was a lot funner two months ago, before a bunch of them freaked out and elected a short fingered monorail-pitchman president.

So J. Cole is about to launch the cultural revolution. "Wet Dreams" playing on loop on someone's Spotify is the new Little Red Book.

My dictionary lists both and "bottoms of sack" and "bottom of sacks" both metaphorically make sense. Maybe we should get an earnest white dude to tell us what the streets think is the right choice.

But what about the boulevards and avenues? Why doesn't anybody bother asking the loops what they have to say? I'm sure the drives and circles have very insightful and specific opinions about hip hop. Don't even bother about the ways, they don't know what the fuck they're talking about.

Nope, you're wrong. Amanda Petrusich, Mark Richardson and Stereogum guest writer [redacted] are today's "Pitchfork" writers.

After helping create a celebrity culture that enabled the insanity of a President-elect Tr*mp, I honestly marvel that people who work at TMZ can manage to sleep at night. But here they are, hounding people who are actually trying to serve the public interest, over a case that no self-respecting prosecutor would submit to a grand jury, just so they can score the latest scoop about some batshit insane, semi-famous singer. "212" is still a great song though.

My entry point to Tribe was hearing "Electric Relaxation" on the radio sometime around 2005. I remember thinking it still sounded so fresh that it absolutely blew my mind when I found out that it was already 12 years old at that point. Ever since Midnight Marauders has been one of my favorite hip hop albums. I still think "Electric Relaxation" is the best introduction to Tribe, especially for indie music nerds.

Funny how Dumbfuckistan is made of all the states where people want to actually live (and New Jersey). I say that as someone who lives in the reddest possible shade of a red state, fwiw.

Hey Tom, there's a glaring and obvious oversight here. I' m going to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume that this record slipped your mind when you wrote this list up. But really, try harder next time. https://s3.amazonaws.com/hiphopdx-production/2015/06/RiFF-RAFF-Peach-Panther-Cover-Art.jpg

Honestly, I love lists and awards, but I don't get why we so worked up about this every year. The Grammys don't and have never really had the institutional integrity to justify the shits given. It's like getting super-invested in what a room full of Ryan Seacrests think is the best music released this year. I mean the Academy Awards is far from perfect, but we give a shit about them because movies like Casablanca, All About Eve and The Godfather have won the Oscar. We wouldn't really give a shit about them if they had given the Oscar to movies like Pearl Harbor, Transformers 2 or something like Crash.
