Train in Vain!
My favorite records thus far are:
Deniro Farrar – The Patriarch (really, really underrated mixtape)
Justin Timberlake – The 20/20 Experience
Chance the Rapper – Acid Rap
Vampire Weekend – Modern Vampires of the City
at the same damn time!
Man, I didn’t think I liked Future, but now I have like 5 of his hooks lodged in my brain.
He destroyed Three Kings, and Watch the Throne was pretty amazing too
Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, I used to think this album was overrated (I favored Revolver and then Abbey Road for a while), but I now see the light
And that video was solid, Creative Control is always on point
Ed Droste Says:
The second half of Jay-Z’s verse sounds kinda like a 2 Chainz flow
This is much better than that Radiohead collab
How about Ski Beatz/Kitty, or The Neptunes at their vintage wierdest
“Fuk wayne c and anybody that love em.”
More song related than video related, but I absolutely love how at the end of Kanye’s verse when the beat is getting too fast, 2 Chainz just busts in and settles everything back down
Some of those Fear of God tracks are good, but it’s nuts to say he’s better now than he was in the We Got It 4 Cheap/Lord Willin’/Hell Hath No Fury era: Mr. Me Too, Momma I’m So Sorry, Keys Open Doors, GRINDIN’, etc.
I did not anticipate Bey sounding this awesome over a Luger-y beat. He should get a feature on that next MMG album, haha, I guarantee he’ll sound more comfortable than Wale or Stalley
Just looking at the Mixtape of the Week entries for the past couple of months I see tapes by Gucci Mane, Alley Boy, Action Bronson, Rick Ross, Juicy J, and 2 Chainz. I don’t think any of those guys are really aspiring to be laid-back socially conscious rappers.
It would be pretty sweet if MMG Vol. 2 tape had some Block Beattaz-type work on it. I can’t imagine Wale and Stalley sounding too good over a bunch of Lex Luger-y beats.
Bon Iver, Bon Iver was an awesome record, it takes a little longer to get into than his first, but it’s really worth it.
Hissing Fauna, are you the Destroyer?
