Asahd is also credited as a producer. So yeah, I don't think Khaled really produced anything.

I am literally an old guy with glasses and a beard, so maybe that's what I have against them.

I cannot wait to write a Nelly column. The opportunity will almost certainly present itself sometime soon. And I completely forgot about that Hamilton soundtrack song! That was really good!

I missed like 15! They're all amazing! That "Thank You For Sending Me An Angel" performance has always been my favorite, and nobody ever talks about it.

I mean, it's my favorite, but if someone made a case for Dirty Mind or Sign O The Times, I wouldn't be mad.

April 14, 2017 on Premature Evaluation: Kendrick Lamar DAMN.
That movie suuuuuuuucks. Guy Ritchie's post-Snatch attempts to get back to his gangster-caper roots were just the saddest thing. Can't remember the last time I saw a director fall off like that.

April 12, 2017 on What Happened To Ludacris?
Queen of Hip-Hop Soul. Puffy exec-produced her early albums. Sang over the "Top Billin" break. Showed up on Method Man and Ghostface's first albums. So yes. Sometimes, writers don't use shortcuts because we don't want to cite a bunch of shit and distract from the point we're trying to make. Maybe don't assume bad faith next time.

Maybe 15 years ago, this guy in Baltimore introduced me to a girl who I guess he was dating. And when she went to go get a drink at the bar or whatever, he whispered to me, all excited, that that was who The Glow, Pt. 2 was about. I'm pretty sure it wasn't Genevieve.

Selena had a hell of a lot more cultural impact than, say, Jeff Buckley did. He was the one I was including to be nice, not her.

if you cannot get behind "my little midget bitch kick you in the dick," you will never appreciate rap music. it's like "dead in the middle of little italy, little did we know that we riddled two middlemen who didn't do diddly," except if stifler or cartman wrote it. it's magical.
