Am I the only one who thinks R. Kelly’s golden age is NOT Ignition Remix’s era, but actually right now? Just needs to spend more time on his albums…
Ughhhhh, I’m still waiting for the documentary on how someone went from being in consideration for the greatest rapper of all time to a complete piece of shit.
OH SHITT though CALL OF DUTTYY OMGG. How many 14-year-olds (and mentally 14-year-old twenty-somethings) are gonna lose their shit over the maximum brotato combination that is middle aged Eminem rapping for a Call of Duty promotion .
This is how i know there is no god.
Was this recorded with someones phone? After passing through 2 dixie cups and a string? Underwater?
Doesn’t seem as polished or solid as Live Love A$AP, but has definitely got some new tracks worth checking out. If it were simply labeled a mixtape I’m sure it would seem more like a treat, particularly the first half of the album (as a whole might be on par with Live Love A$AP but with bigger hits, bigger misses.) Still leagues ahead of the Lords Never Worry disaster.
Seriously though I’m dissapointed, I was hoping there’d be a comment party. Nobody else cared about this?
Anyone else listening to this?? Fergivicious is tightttttt. Sucker for the opener as well. Can’t wait to crank this all night.
Gotta say Within and Without is one of my fave albums of all time (top 3 at least,) i never thought the music was just “headphone music” as some people may suggest. With Allen producing on both these lps its just as rewarding a listen intimitally as it is ambiently. I also think Paracosm is much more accessible than W&W.
Awesome summer soaked music all around. Just remember to be patient with this guy. I remember Diplo saying something like “Washed Out could use some starch.” I think a lot of people (including Diplo) can learn from his patience in how he builds his songs. Glad to see its possible for someone waste deep in chillwave break the mold while still carrying the torch.
He’s got his block behind him like he’s pullin’ out the driveway. I feel like most people back out of their driveway.
I don’t want to be that guy -but nice try Hannah – still can’t hold a candle to the vocal range and power of the original. Still like seeing artists show love towards one of the greatest songs of the past 25 years (Still can’t believe how old it is.)
This is excellent, love seeing artists compliment each other like this.
Megan James, if you’re reading this (which obviously you are) we need more of your vocal work on songs! I wan’t more covers in the vein of that Soulja Boy one you did earlier this year.
Its dissent from the Nerd Rap movement.
Music – like any other art medium – isn’t confined to a singular template of whats good and whats bad. Smart lyricism isn’t inherently better than “ignorant rap”.
Lupe Fiasco-esque raps of intellect just aren’t progressive right now. The Will Ferrell sample on Niggas in Paris sums it up perfectly, lyrics don’t necessarily need to make sense or fall in line with any particular view of what you think is a good line, it just has to sound cool. As long as it “gets the people going.”
For the record, I think the beat provides more than enough substance. That skittering high-hat is what takes the song to another level. Particularly in contrast to the otherwise modern, washed out synths used on the hook.
