Either the whole Calabasas Kardashian circus shitshow has fucked with his head or he's taking this "name one genius that ain't crazy" mentality to another level and he simply does not give a fuck. I'm not sure if the Ellen show is the right place to vent and express his ideas. Sometimes I think the best artists leave this planet due to unfortunate circumstances and the yes men they surround themselves with are partly to blame. Scooter Braun needs to step it up and help this dude.

I kinda feel bad for James Blake. I was reminded of elementary school when you sneak in that cool new Pokemon card but then the next day some other kid brings in a holographic card and shits all over your moment.

Hell yes. I hope Modern Soul is on the album because I need a CDQ version.

I assumed Drake was going to remain creatively consistent like Kanye when it came to having great albums from beginning to end. We're barely in the second quarter of this year and already both of these rap heavyweights have released their albums and both albums ended up being forgettable. I think Chance, RTJ, and that Kendrick/Cole joint are the only albums I'm looking forward to. Kinda getting the feeling this year in hip hop might disappoint due to there being only 1 or 2 good albums each quarter. Damn, the best rap album so far was an album with unmastered joints from Kendrick.

Spectre made me feel very hopeful and positive about the upcoming LP. When the Burn the Witch single dropped it confirmed that Jonny's input would be obvious and I think this upcoming album will not disappoint. I kind of blame Thom and his interest in recent experimental electronic music artists such as Flylo, Burial, and Four Tet as the reason why KoL wasn't universally beloved. The other guys probably knew they had to approach this next album differently and the new single definitely reflects that. Also, while on the subject of potential AOTY's, ANOHNI's new album so far after a couple listens feels underwhelming. Unfortunately, it reminded me of Woodkid.

But what if the album is so different that I'm not ready? June is very fucking close you guys! Do I need new earphones and speakers? Can my car stereo handle this album? Is it something I can hear during the day or during summer nights? What if July comes and I'm still not ready for the possible Flying Lotus remixes?

"His best album might be 808s & Heartbreak" - This honestly gave me such a good laugh that I stopped reading and went straight to the comments.

This is completely unrelated but the new layout for the Pitchfork site makes me appreciate Stereogum a lot more since the site is so easy to navigate.

Dr. Luke was responsible for helping produce and write a good amount of songs that were terrible and made flipping through the radio during past road trips a pain in the ass. He claims he's like a big brother to artists the labels are trying to push to the top of the Billboard charts. He definitely embodies the typical sleazy music industry guy that is usually behinds the scenes making a shit load of money while artists come and go (or in Kesha's case held hostage and taken advantage of). Also, while on the subject of industry vultures, people should look into Lyor Cohen and his involvement with artists like Young Thug, Migos, and Fetty Wap. Those interviews with him and Young Thug were very odd.

Zoe Saldana is great but whoever was involved in casting fucked up. She looks nothing like Nina Simone.
