I have been thinking all week I would be #1. I am so sad.
Should I just become part of the commentariat?
I WAS SO CLOSE
I saw the tweet and I was like, “WILL THERE OR WON’T THERE BE A YEEZUS REFERENCE” and now here we are. HI GUYS!
You forgot to mention Yeezus :)
Aw thank you, Raptor Jesus! No going away post from me. This was it and I’m glad you think it’s a good note to bow out with. Always appreciated how much you contribute to the convo here, RJ, and your kind words upon my departure.
I know, I said that it was there to remind “us he popped off when Clinton was president.” :)
I’ve never heard otherwise, so I am pretty sure that it’s just thinking faster than typing. Thanks for pointing out that one so I could fix it.
I couldn’t agree with you more. And at the helm of all of his maniacal Twitter-ing, it’s even more glaring.
The thing is, I wonder if we had just as much output from other rappers, we might see more of this. When people started calling Drake “emo rap,” I always wondered why someone like DMX or Sticky Fingaz from Onyx didn’t get the same labels because they’re exuding a lot of pain in a really dark way. For what it’s worth, “real emo” (sorry), at least Revolution Summer steez, is pretty dark.
All goes back to that Kim Gordon quote from earlier this year where she said she listened to a lot of rap during her break-up with Thurston Moore because it’s good for trauma. For what it’s worth, rap was built of trauma.
Kanye wore it better: “mayonnaise-colored Benz / I push miracle whips”
That was almost on the list! I love that song, too.
They’re no longer allowed to make Katy perform off-site. The dearth of her and Rihanna together was too much for me to bear(cunt).
“Hi, I’m Brian Fellows!” – Bruno Mars
Her internal monologue is definitely brutally cruel, but those eyes say she’s too faded to know that she’s not outwardly showing the shade. Oof, Rihanna.
Kevin Hart is going to make me feel so much better.
If you guys feel like you need one more rule, drink every time someone says “twerk.”
I’m on an iPad. This might be a mess. #pray4claire
I meant to upvote that :(
His use of “Fraggle” would certainly support this. Although, the Fraggles were extremely pedantic.
Yeah, I just downloaded the iTunes version and noticed that and was totally bummed.
Bad news: “R.I.P.” is actually a cover of the Migos song.
I’m not sure why you can’t see it because if you scroll up, it’s still there.
You are totally right. Producer is from Memphis. Thanks for pointing that out!
You know what? I take it back. Despite the kind of jank ears, the work is really good. Someone below pointed out that it could be fake because there’s no definition on the ends, but really the line work is just finessed really well and it clearly healed beautifully. I concede to you, KiDCHAIR. (Also, I don’t watch Ink Master on Spike TV, either.)
You are not watching enough Ink Master on Spike TV, my friend.
