Ha. Literally everyone that talks to me about the classic rap station we have here has been white. I mean i’m okay with that, it’s just sort of hilarious when my early20something year old friends wax nostalgically about Black Sheep when I know for a fact that a lot of these dudes’ first rap experience was Ludacris’s Chicken-n-Beer or something.

Yeah that’s probably true. It was really funny. I only ever watched re-runs on BET when I was a kid. Not to mention that Grace Jones skit actually introduced me to Grace Jones.

I should probably clarify that I meant Benji was a fluke in the sense that it was strange that I actually liked it, since “48-year-old sad white man folk rock” is literally the furthest thing from what I ever want to listen to.

Benji was the only Kozelek output that I ever spent any real time with, and I’m glad I did. However, going back and listening to RHP and other SKM stuff, Benji may have been a fantastic fluke. Not saying the dude can’t write good music, but there’s only so much choked-up rambling a guy can take. I want to listen to Universal Themes, but it’ll be awhile before I feel like I should.

also nice In Living Color reference there Tom; you’d be a great contestant on I Know Black People.

man look:

Rappers are always rapping about sexist and misogynistic stuff. The fact that it’s just accepted that “bitches” are property you can buy with fame and money proves that no one is actually scrutinizing rap music as hard as they are literally every other kind of art and media. Rap music has always gotten a break from being offensive towards women because it’s not *explicitly* offensive towards women. And that’s weird as fuck! Like if I was a woman, it’d be hard for me to listen to a bunch of dudes refer to me as a bitch. Something to steal from another guy. But we’re all good with that. But rape? That’s crossing a line. Why? Isn’t all misogyny crossing a line? I mean I know for a fact that some of the same folks who call for people like Rick Ross’s and RHQ’s careers over their rapey bars love Danny Brown, a dude who once rapped “so no apologies for all the misogyny.”

where y’all gonna stand on this issue? can’t be in the middle.

“but somehow the internet (myself included) only collectively realized exactly what Rich Homie was saying today.”

…but the song leaked back in December? Like how did you just miss one of your rap heroes drop a line about rape?

I think it’s great that kid takes an interest in music but any kid who takes his or her middle school band classes seriously could do that. Just saying.

April 24, 2015 on DIIV Announce New Album Is The Is Are

everytime I think about DIIV, I’m reminded of a conversation I overheard at Bonnaroo ’13

“ooh I love these guys! Who are they?”
“I think it’s Earl Sweatshirt.”
“Nah, this is DIIV.” (Earl had cancelled)
“But the schedule says Earl Sweatshirt.”
“Trust me, this is DIIV. Earl is a rapper.”
“But they aren’t rapping!”
“Because this isn’t Earl Sweatshirt!”
“ugh whatever”

expected to reveal this comment and it be something like “Frank Ocean makes cool music and Channel Orange was a decent record but damn it wasn’t all that calm down”; was disappointed.
