Yes its very frustrating that I can't find a publication that it caters totally and exclusively to my particular interests! This is why media is dying.

If Kendrick wants to be on Broadway so bad he could just cal Lin-Manuel instead of sending him these slam poety operas imo

Throw Away, Wesley Presley, Codeine Crazy, March Madness, Kno The Meaning, Percocet And Strippers Joint, Aintchu, Run Up, Drippin, Seven Rings is a quickly cobbled together list off the top of my head that spans the 18 mo and covers as wide variety of sound / mood as he has

I mean you can have multiple tacos with different types of meats in it, each it own distinct experience, LIKE HAVING 3 MEALS! If you want multiple meats in a burrito they get rolled into an indistinguishable franken-protein.

I don't think its THAT amazing that a blog that started off covering mostly indie rock music has a predominantly white male audience (an assumption I'm making, granted) would both complain insufferably about not covering "true music" and mimimize sexism and racism. ALL YR FAVS R PROBLEMATIC DOODS MINE TOO GET OVER IT.

Its probably a cop out excuse, but I think the women-as-objects trope works really well in the Jay Rock vid. They're all rapping about self loathing and self-destructive urges, and going over the top with it might serve as an acknowledgment that its fucked up. It def enters "becoming what you're critiquing territory" so i think its viewer's mileage may vary kinda thing, I would not try to defend it to someone who is disgusted by it. (says the man that just did that)

Evolution, the fall of Rome, dinosaurs, and black holes? You have got to stop getting high and watching Cosmos, my pal. Although, now that I think about it, after invasions, financial crises, and govt corruption, the leading cause of the end of the Roman Empire was too much faux neon and not enough grunge rock so maybe you have a point.
