Great write-up James. Do you know if he's put up the song lyrics anywhere? I can't find them on his bandcamp, hopefully he includes them in the cd copy.

"Jay has until 3/11 to convince them"...... wait a sec! ... 3/11 = 3 divided by 11 = 0.272... 0.27 rounds up to 0.3 (3) and 2+7+2=11....... GUYS 311!!!

The theory I've seen on some forums is that this was supposed to be a mixtape but Drake decided to drop it on iTunes so it would count as the 4th album of his 4 album contract with Birdman, and he could be free to sign with someone else. Not sure if that's true, but it kinda makes sense considering the subject matter on some of these songs (Now and Forever) and the name of the project.

Speaking of the Macklemore Iggy Azalea, I think it's worth noting that she might be getting more hate because she seems completely ignorant to the extent that she is appropriating black culture while Macklemore acknowledges and draws awareness to it (I mean the guy has a song called White Privilege). Just my two cents, I don't know much about Iggy

This seems like as good of a place as any to say this... James, thank you so much for your year end song list. That Small Wonder album is seriously life changing. I think I've teared up to it more times in the last couple weeks then any other 2014 album (minus wild beasts). But really, your list was really cool, and it led me to discover the Sharpless album mentioned in this article, as well as Bellows' Blue Breath. Also, thank you for introducing me to Kero Kero Bonito and Trace Mountains, both those albums are great. I'll give this article a read tomorrow, when I'm not inebriated by 2015 good cheer! I'm confident it's filled with good stuff
