Comments from sellingthefuckout

What is your basis for calling what I said utter "cap"? It doe snot make me feel good about myself. I am not "trolling" I know a person that worked direct detail with James Taylor during a political campaign, and told me that there was a bit of a facade that was placed in interviews. After working weeks with the man he refused and somewhat belittled the person im referring to after asking him to sign Taylor's first LP. I don't get satisfaction out of this, and doesn't make the songs he wrote and less impactful, but while my tone may have been brash it doesn't belay the point to keep perspective on artists and not be surprised if they don't measure up in person.

Yeah, but, too bad I have heard that he is a raging egomaniac in private.

Hard to believe Lil Kim is only 40.

I saw them a few years ago when they were doing a small club tour and damn it was powerful stuff. Set: Runaways (Live première) Somebody Told Me Smile Like You Mean It Spaceman This Is Your Life The Rising Tide Miss Atomic Bomb For Reasons Unknown Bling (Confession of a King) Shadowplay (Joy Division cover) Human A Dustland Fairytale Read My Mind Mr. Brightside All These Things That I've Done Encore: Flesh and Bone Jenny Was a Friend of Mine When You Were Young I think it is a big thing now to be passive and coy about your intentions as a musician. A brooding confidence is needed in this "aww shucks" kind of music atmosphere that has been created. Everyone is so PC now that it is boring.

I think that like "It Was Written" that "Hell on Earth" was way under appreciated. It was a little more polished, but there are some damn bangers on there. "Give it up Fast" is tremendous and one of Nas' best raps.

Publishing these articles just spark more interest for assholes next year. Honestly, the shop I went to had a girl that posted up 8pm the day before to get that Brand New record. While I do not like the band, and am frankly amazed at that level of dedication in a city not named NY or LA like this one it just sucks that some dick could be right beside a genuine fan, and then gouge them moments after they buy an album.

I wonder if the TDE influence is going to become a conflict moving forward. It seems like a lot of the nickel and dime stuff is in Punch's hands. This Reebok thing smacks of advice coming from outside, especially since Kendrick seems put it out there that his only concern is his art and leave the other stuff to TDE. Being obliviously loyal is not an excuse for taking bad advice.

I understand that this is a premature evaluation and anything on here should be taken with a grain of salt, but why take such definitive views on the music if you admittedly have not fully digested the work? Also, with your entire Pac comparison, how does your assumption that Kendrick idolizes Tupac mean that he needs to be him? Are you just really missing Shakur and are disappointed KL's not giving you the gang mentality, borderline misogynist raps that you crave? If you listen to all of the "interview" at the end and the message about power being a young man's game, than at 27 Kendrick doesn't have time to wait on taking a stand. THAT, if anything contributes to an imbalance in this work, the clarity he is feeling right now and how to properly channel it while being the best rapper in the game. Btw, I don't think that there is one once of fear or anxiety in that "Control" verse.
