I just wanted to say fuck Pitchfork for not giving Stereogum credit for posting Amber's statement that she shared with them first.

Nobody and I mean no rapper, singer, or artist is at this man's level right now. Dude even inspired Moonlight Director Barry Jenkin's to put that Boris Gardner track that is sampled on Wesley's Theory from TPAB in the beginning of the film.

March 24, 2017 on Kendrick Lamar – “The Heart Part 4″
If this was posted at 3:11 pm east coast time and Moscow is 7+ hours ahead then it was posted at 10:11 pm Moscow time. Now this video is 1 minute and 35 seconds long. Trump is the 45th president and was inaugurated around 12 pm. 1:35 + 45 + 12 rounds up to be 60 minutes. 10:11 - 60 minutes = 9:11. What. The. Fuck...

I am not a fan of both Kesha and Dr. Luke's music and if the accusations against Dr. Luke are true then he is a piece of shit. But so far it seems like the courts are slowly siding with Luke. What if Kesha lied? What if she actually made a lot of this stuff up because she wasn't satisfied with the direction of her career prior to her legal battles with Dr. Luke? Her last hit was that Timber song with Pitbull from 2013 and that came out a year before all these accusations were made to the public. Nobody really knows what happened between them but I do hope Kesha somehow can prove these accusations. If she loses then that was a really fucked up thing to accuse someone of and also her legal fees will be ridiculous.

Jorja Smith is one of those SoundCloud gems that i found last summer and she is incredible. This was really awesome that Aubrey featured her on his new project. I never recommend music on here but if you guys get a chance it will be worth your time listening to her music.

If anyone were to create an interactive VR Taylor Swift I bet it would actually be like an evil secret ploy to get new material for her songs. Probably worse than Skynet (Swiftnet?).

March 5, 2017 on Father John Misty – “Total Entertainment Forever”
Lyrics aside, 21 Savage is about as boring as a Christian youth rap concert. Remove the Metro Boomin beats and he sounds like someone who just woke up at 3 am to pick up a phone call. I bet even the older Jewish folks were wondering why the fuck the parents didn't try to reach out to Aubrey. Forget the kids and their questionable choices in music. Also, I predict all these Future copycat monotone rappers by the end of the year will become irrelevant. We reached peak Future on DS2 and after that his albums have been the same shit. I'm just glad there are other rappers in Atlanta that are in their own lanes and keeping that weirdo spirit that we associate with the city alive.

All this needs is a Ellen Degeneres cosign and an edm remix version featuring John Mayer on the guitar. Seriously though, I could imagine all these guys in Malibu a couple months ago sipping Cactus Cooler with shoe less Rick Rubin and thinking "the world ain't ready for this". Rick was probably left speechless and was laying down and gently massaging his god-like beard while this convo went down. Maybe add some Diddy shit talking adlibs and this single will be certified diamond by July. "Get a sun tan ya bish, take that take that".

February 24, 2017 on Calvin Harris – “Slide” (Feat. Frank Ocean & Migos)
21 was waaay better than 25. If I was Beyonce or Kendrick I would just stop showing up. Spending 4 hours for nothing while knowing a bunch of old folks are pretty much deciding who the main awards will go to. Also, it seems like they make up awards categories so almost everyone leaves with something like this is some team sport event and they want everybody to feel like a winner. Next year they should make the best new modern classical contemporary island song category and nominate artists that have been famous for more than 3 years but were just acknowledge by the fossil Grammy voting committee. Either some of these older voters will be replaced soon or this shit will soon be canceled and only streamed from their website.

February 2, 2017 on Hackers Target Radio Stations, Force Them To Play YG’s “FDT” On Repeat
Hold the fuck up... so Pharrell just announced his wife had triplets and now Beyonce saying she's having twins. Each already has one kid so now altogether they have 7. Kanye and Kim got two kids and if they announce she's pregnant with twins that makes the total number of hip hop babies 11. Now if my math is correct each will have around 4 kids (Beyonce's 3 plus Jay's son/weed carrier Memphis Bleek makes it 4). 4 is the number after 3 and the potential number of rap babies is 11. 3-11 you guys. Crazy shit..

January 26, 2017 on Drake Wants To Get Back Into Acting, Become The Next Johnny Carson
Kind of feel like Rostam is taking this too seriously. Damien Chazelle (director and writer of both Whiplash and La La Land) developed this movie with the main emphasis being on Stone and Gosling's characters. All Chazelle intended to do was make a movie that pay's homage to old school Hollywood and the people that come to L.A. with unrealistic dreams but tried to give this movie a realistic outcome (for the only two characters who mattered in the movie) that would satisfy different audiences. Also, Chazelle has a jazz background and wasn't able to get studios to fund this film until Whiplash was winning critical acclaim and being nominated for awards. To shit on the jazz aspect of the movie without understanding the reason for why he included it is kind of a dick move. This is like me criticizing a Vampire Weekend album for not giving a verse to some popular indie rapper at the time and just letting them appear on a remix song. I get Rostam is trying to raise more awareness when it comes to the lack of diversity overall in the entertainment industry but at the same there are other movies and directors that he could be shitting on. Other movies and passion projects that came out this year that he could help promote.

December 13, 2016 on Kanye West Meets With Donald Trump At Trump Tower
I'm not a major fan of Soul but damn it's crazy how long it took to release this album. It seems like everyone from TDE can't release their albums without CEO Top Dawg's approval. To everyone outside the label it seems like his favorites are clearly Kendrick and Q but shit dude these other talents gotta eat too. I get that Isaiah Rashad's album was delayed due to personal issues. But all these other delays are gonna lead to people leaving the label and TDE possibly losing the prestige it currently has.

Terrible timing. Kanye is not even in the position to give a proper response. Subliminal rap verses calling out other rappers are the worst. Especially when they don't mention who they are targeting by name. A lot of current gen rappers do this and the supposed beef seems about as fake as a WWE beef. Jermaine is like the Kurt Angle of rap. Boring to watch even though he knows the game by heart. Someone who you skip on the radio and then switch back to the station when you think his songs are over.

November 9, 2016 on Donald Trump And Rap Music
Less than a third of the population voted. This election just confirms that the hatred and ignorance that has existed prior to our country's birth is still alive. Sure, a lot of people already felt hopeless before yesterday's election results but fuck all this sadness and disappointment. We need to be strong for all those people who believe that their voices do not matter and are threatened by the status quo. Be considerate and responsible consumers and respectful of what has existed on this planet prior to mankind's existence. Sending love to anyone that is worried about walking down the street and afraid to be themselves. You are not alone.

I usually tend to have low expectations when any artist or group reunites and releases new material but this is a big fucking deal. Also, it's been forever since Q-Tip released music so I am excited for this.

I'm thinking Kendrick does these types of collabs so he can have creative freedom on future projects and so his label bosses are less involved in his process.
