James Blake doesn't strike me as a kind of guy that wears shorts so I don't think a move to LA was ever gonna happen.

August 24, 2016 on Chance The Rapper, James Blake Disagree About Whether They Leased A Hollywood Mansion Together
I've always thought of Cole (and Drake too) as an average everyday dude. He blew up thanks to internet rap blog posts and Facebook/Twitter shares. Someone that can satisfy the "90's music was better" conscious rap crowd and the trap/dance rap fans that just failed a midterm and want a break from partying and wanna get into serious study mode. His songs always sounded like motivational/everyday life raps that were like a mix of average Nas songs released after It Was Written (arguably his last classic). I at least admire Cole for acquiring a big fan base and radio presence with little help from Jay-Z but damn dude is boring. He's still big when there are other rappers (many whom are mentioned on this site) with more interesting persona's. Dude is like the Kurt Angle of rap music. Also, for some reason he's always reminded me of Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh.

Hearing that Demi Lovato song is the equivalent to smelling a nasty fart in public.

I think trying to figure out which songs on an album have the potential to be a hit is the wrong approach to the album/listening experience. I prefer hearing a specific artist or work because of the time of day/night, season, or mood I'm in. Also, those two exact songs and Pyramids I recall skipping after a couple months of listening to Channel Orange due to how often they were played by others.

I remember as a kid not being able to afford pay per view movies and wrestling events but would be able to sometimes see them on certain channels with the colors and visuals all distorted. I was still happy though because the audio was clear and I could kind of decipher what was going on even though it looked super trippy. These songs remind me of those blissful feelings I had as a kid.

If you're not RTJ then making a collab album is silly.

I really tried to get into their last LP but the prog rock stuff just wasn't working for me. To this day I still listen to Cross, Planisphere, and some of the live album tracks so I'm really looking forward to this next album.

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.

May 5, 2016 on James Blake’s New Album The Colour In Anything Out Tonight, Hear Three New Tracks
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.

May 5, 2016 on Drake “Sold” 1.2M Copies Of Views Only Thanks To Old “Hotline Bling” Streams
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.
