Abramovic is a much maligned ass clown of the NYC art scene, so her lack of due diligence here isn't the least bit surprising.

With the down votes, please give your reasoning for disapproving of what I just said. Guns N' Roses, Anthrax, Tool, Eminem all have songs about violence and/or violence towards women, yet we are not outraged. Jesus, last year Stereogum and every other music trade paper out there was falling over themselves for Run the Jewels when they had songs actively encouraging murder. And what's more all of these examples were RELEASED for the public to here, imagine what was left on the cutting room floor (like this song was meant to). Once again, not a fan of Rich Homie and I'm certainly not saying he's artistically on the same level as these examples, but the principle is the same. Are people outraged because they're assuming Rich Homie is only capable of rapping things that actually happened to him? Silly question, people are outraged because it is the fastest way to self gratification nowadays. It's art, sometimes it goes ugly places. It might not be very good art, but its still art. Get over it.

May 14, 2015 on Rich Homie Quan Raps About Raping Somebody, Offers Feeble Apology
Dear Lordy Lord, All the horrible shit sung/said in song lyrics and getting in a tizzy about something that wasn't even released. I'm no fan of Rich Homie or his brand of rap but its a creative process. You really want to put every artist on trial for something they do or say in their work space? Double standards running wild.

Melodies match up well, but the lyrics don't match at ALL (aside from vague comic value).

He had just cashed a pay check. Also he showed them the money (not too bright) but I guess you don't expect part of a famous rappers crew to steal from you. By the way, this took one google search and about 3 minutes. http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2015/04/06/dmx-accused-of-robbing-new-jersey-man-at-a-gas-station-police-say/

April 6, 2015 on Police Investigating Whether DMX Robbed Man At Newark Gas Station
Agreed, all the editorializing at the end of this article is combination of vague assumptions and ignorance mixed together into a big bowl of wrong. The least you could say is "$3200 sure is a lot of money to be carrying around at a gas station in Newark at 12:30." (although he was driving, its not like he was strolling the streets). That way you aren't insinuating the victim must have been a drug dealer or pimp. It is possible that the guy was exaggerating how much money it was or he could be lying about this or that, but oh wait, the story provides absolutely no information to back up those assumptions. Either wait until there is more information or don't say anything at all.

Interesting video. Really nice use of context to shape a scene. Not to be a total buzzkill though, but if we're looking at this as a form of storytelling it doesn't really make sense that the black guy would flee, given the ending.

While race could have something to do with this consider for a moment that these people don't like Kanye's music. If you don't like his music what are left with? An obnoxious, pompous, egomaniac that parades around with his tabloid wife saying things like "Kim is more relevant than Michelle Obama." I think he's an extremely talented performer and producer, but the guy can be pretty insufferable as a human being.

Alright, "violence" aside, there is no way that painting is worth $4500.

Azalea Banks being mature enough to stomp a feud? Yeah right. The place she's burying the hatchet is in someone's skull.

As someone who studied the Vietnam War and contemporary history of South East Asia in college, this is pretty ridiculous. Are there people that don't like the Viet Cong to this day? Sure. Were the Viet Cong any more brutal than any other fighting force of the last 150 years? Not particularly. Actually compared to what the French did to the Vietnamese in the 50s, the Viet Cong are practically saints.

I'm not the world's biggest Beyonce fan by a long shot but Single Ladies was a pretty transcendent hit.

My dad was a big music hound growing up. He was also a big Zeppelin fan. He saw them by chance at the Filmore East way back before anyone had ever heard of them. He still talks about the first time he heard "Communication Breakdown" (their opening number that night). He has instilled a lot of musical wisdom in me and one of those pieces of wisdom is this simple truth: Nothing, not even "Stairway" can match the mind blowing power of the first time a human being hears Led Zeppelin I. You got it wrong Stereogum. You got it wrong.

If he blows up about it he risks looking like the self absorbed jerk, especially since him winning was so surprising. Besides, he's be shown to roll with these things in the past (I.E. David Lee Roth jerking off behind him at the VMAs way back)

What I would like to know is, when The Weekend showed up for this and he saw dancers with tape x's on their butt cheeks was he like "okay, yeah, I get this." or was he like "WTF?"
