To put RHCP on any overrated list is just a giant fucking joke.

Macklemore – My Oh My

Was not as bad as I expected.

However, if you’re going to pretend you can play the guitar, play it. That guitar part isn’t hard, to half-ass it is infuriating.

Also, the first minute and a half was awful.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis + Doomtree + Childish Gambino + J. Cole

I don’t even like hip hop that much and that alone is a huge boost for Lolla. I’ll be really excited to see a mix of artists this year.

@Tom – I’m pretty sure you undermined the validity of anything you may have been going to say with the phrase “bon iver hypey garbage”. Not only does that manage to make about as little sense as possible, while being horrendously vague, but it makes it pretty clear that you care less about the music and more about being a smart ass.

Pro-tip: Like music or don’t like it. Just don’t be a moron.

The point is that he wants to make music. And if people like that music, that’s awesome. But it’s never ABOUT selling the music. And in regards to the article, the point is that JV loves collaborating with people – but it has to be because the two musicians have something drawn them together, not because some corporate exec thinks they should. That being said, I think it may have bene prudent for JV to roll with the punches and make an interesting collaboration out of a dumb situation.
