I was late to this one - it's great. Surprised it isn't getting more talk.

Wait - how did I miss All We Need? I don't remember reading about it or anything, even though I quite enjoyed Indigo Child

Maybe if Weezy went to jail in Norway or something... Guwop definitely seems like the extremely rare example of a prison sentence serving as rehabilitation.

I actually found his interview with John Caramanica quite moving. I didn't know I was worried about Gucci 'til I read that he was doing so well, and relief swept over me. We're happy for you, Guwop.

I don't know about this one, but that Shlohmo and Jeremih EP is still really good.

Ennh - I'm over it... I mean, the kid is named after Rakim and then ASAP is his crew, so carry the one... and I just don't really care anymore. You still worried Bronson sounds too much like Ghostface?

July 18, 2016 on The “Famous” Saga Continues: Kim Kardashian Leaks Kanye West & Taylor Swift Phone Call, Swift Accuses Them Of Character Assassination
It's confusing, but I dont think gum has all of Kim's snaps, there's a bit where Taytay talks about selling 7 million records before the VMAs or something like that. Check the reddit thread with the transcription. Kim should still just release the whole video uncut at this point, tho... Also - the top comment on that thread is just hillarious

*upvotes* but wait a second... do I consider any of these three a reliable source? I don't trust Taytay more than I can throw her (there's gotta be some joke here about that long t-swift-prolly-not-a-good-fuck thread from that other article, but I don't have the energy to navigate those waters and figure it out).

You could tell Clams was not really expecting Jesse to be up on the rap game... always funny when Jesse casually drops knowledge.

I mean - you cant really miss a leak. I wouldn't even feel bad about torrenting it, if you do. They knew full-well and were probably counting on the internet to keep it alive after they pulled it. The "leak" even ends with a short promo card that says to see the rest on Thursday at 9pm or whatever.

Great write-up RJ. Loved how you broke down those standout tracks that were so impactful. I think you and Tom both nailed it - Clams control of mood is outstanding. Palace and I'm God, in particular, immediately gave me that chemicals-rushing-into-your-brain feeling that can be totally transportive.

July 11, 2016 on Watch Gucci Mane’s Harmony Korine-Directed Supreme Ad
Yeah - I don't know if its racist, sexist or whatever... don't even care much, just wondering why that word always sticks in my ear. Maybe, it's cause it never seems genuine? And even though they're practically the same, and both derive their meaning from a classist idea on the quality of people inherently tied to class, I don't mind if some says something is "fucking class." Words are weird.

July 10, 2016 on Beyoncé Pays Tribute To Police Killed In Dallas
This is not directed at you, Xmas, but does anyone else find that the word "classy" always stings your ears? There's something about it that always feels like some kind of nasty backhanded compliment or something. It's always felt akin to that Chris Rock "he speaks so well" bit, that someone brought up in another thread. Maybe it's because I feel like I usually hear it said of (mostly black) athletes or entertainers, who have acted in a "surprisingly" gracious or generous way? Am I the only one overthinking this?

I was late to that Car Seat Headrest lp - gotdamn is it good. All in all, I think it's been a great year for music, but it's fucking hard to stave off the total nihilism, right not. I have been looking forward to Q, Aphex, and Avalanches for a while, but everything is so fucked that now that they are here, I haven't really been up to listening to anything. Might go for a drive, with some comfort music - Otis or something. (Buena Vista is also sounding great right now). Anyway - anyone else got some old stuff that they've listened to a million times that they listen to when they really need it?

July 9, 2016 on Shut Up, Dude: This Week’s Best And Worst Comments
I mean - Tom likes Bronson. Cos Bronson is fucking great. And according to this piece, Logic is mixed race, but idk - I'm technically Irish, black and Chinese, but in the end I just look vaguely white (kinda like those Time magazine covers of people from the future made from composite images), so yeah - me and Logic are from the future. And in the future, rap is fucking boring.

Hey - didn't say it was right, but you can't control language or who changes it. The same black males using bitch to signify female are also using nigga to signify male... I mean - I'm not even a linguist - these are just vague memories of papers I've read or pieces I heard on the radio. Re-reading my comment now - I don't even think "recoding" is the right way to describe this phenomenon (apparently "semantic shift" would be more accurate - coding is unrelated), so if you want to just discount me as some anonymous idiot on the internet and move on, go for it. I just think language is an interesting thing to talk about. God-damn everything really gets muddled when you consume as much information as we do everyday...

There is a linguistic argument to be made that "nigga" and "bitch" are currently being recoded as signifiers of gender, particularly in rap. There's also the argument that asshole as a pejorative should be used with less of a gender-focus, as it's currently usually applied more to men, and women are usually called bitches, even when they're acting like assholes. I'm not advocating anything except - damn language is weird and cool...

Gotta be faceswaps right? Did you Cersei's walk of atonement on Thrones? That shit was a body double with a CGI faceswap. Add in the home sextape style filter to make it a bit harder to spot, and hit the 'Ye button, u good.
