Hating Sky Blue Sky is just dumb. There’s nothing wrong with getting a bit of pop in your Wilco. I will defend Hate it Here to the end. Sure you could say it’s a bit corny, but it’s also really funny and sweet and a bit sad all at the same time. It’s wonderful.

I listened (well – to some of it). I still think it’s pretty shitty. It’s just manipulative use of much better music. It adds nothing to the songs it samples and functions only as a shitty mashup of nostalgia with a bad chorus. I would much rather just listen to the original songs.

“What are you even supposed to do with a song like that?”
Do? I honestly can’t tell if asking what you’re supposed do with a song is a brilliant way of thinking about music or just a dumb one. It’s definitely a weird question to ask. Do. Do with…

I actually think there’s a lot more Mos Def/ASAP overlap than you’d expect (although less Blackstar). I’d expect most of the rap fans on this site are fans of Mos and Rocky.

Oh shit… Is this gonna be like Country grammar with those tracking shots back forth as Nelly paces in front of low-riders, etc.? Cos I love that video. Love it.

March 26, 2015 on Watch Some Behind-The-Scenes Clips From Kendrick Lamar’s “King Kunta” Video

Wow – I guess I was totally giving her (or whoever runs her twitter account) too much credit. I thought it was some complex joke about her perceived identity, the co-opting of culture, her relationship with rap, and rap’s relationship with the rest of culture all wrapped up in borderline satire on tumblr/pinterest type photographs.

But, again – I don’t know shit about T Swift. Other than that video which beat out Single Ladies for that meaningless award was total garbage.

I dunno – isn’t that the joke? I don’t follow miz Swift – does she have the capability for that?

Wait – he cowrote fourfiveseconds?! I love Kanye and Dirty Projectors, but that song is just… not good.

March 12, 2015 on Listen To Dave Longstreth’s New Orchestral Work “Michael Jordan”

Wow… it’s still really bad. I was happy that this missed the cut for Yeezus, I can only hope we dodge the Awesome bullet again on So Help Me God.

March 11, 2015 on Kanye West – “Awesome”

I watched Degrassi, and have always spent too much time on mixtape websites. At first, I was like – well that’s weird the guy from Degrassi is rapping now, I don’t really see that working out, but Best I Ever Had was a fun kinda poppy rap song, so whatever, we’ll see what happens. I mean – half jewish Canadian teen soap-opera star? Seems unlikely that he would become a star, right? Still, I’m a huge Weezy fan, so I was listening.

I didn’t love So Far Gone or Thank Me Later, and was still wondering if this Drake thing was for real. Then Take Care, which had probably my favorite song of that year, Lord Knows. I loved that album. Ok, now I’m totally open to the idea that Drake is good, now. Nothing Was the Same hits. That’s it. Drake is good. He’s just really good, now. He’s a thing. He’s not going anywhere and I’m there for any Drake album, now.

February 13, 2015 on Drake Drops Surprise Mixtape If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late

I don’t know about instagram, but Freddie Gibbs has run a twitter account for his dog for a few years, I think it’s @smokeygibbs, and Best Coast has one for her cat.

Skits suck. They are the worst.
But….. 36 Chambers is probably the worst example of bad skits. Wu tang is one of the few groups with good memorable skits.

Will have to give this a listen. I was hoping/expecting this week’s spot to go to last week’s Travis Scott tape. It’s sooooo good

September 3, 2014 on Mixtape Of The Week: Swet Shop Boys Swet Shop EP

I dunno – when I heard that live snippet of this song before Yeezus, I was really worried about the album. I really hope this song misses the cut on the follow-up, too.

September 2, 2014 on Hear New Kanye Song “Awesome” Teased In Keeping Up With The Kardashians

Damn – it’s gonna be real hard to not wear out this mp3 before 10/28

Kinda reminds me of the beat for Liquid Swords in its awesomely simple infectiousness.

August 21, 2014 on Run The Jewels – “Blockbuster Night Part 1″

Coincidentally – I’ve been listening to Rich Forever again, this past week. Got damn! It’s still so good. The production is just crazy for a mixtape.

I’m excited to give this a go. Devil is a Lie has getting a ton of spins for me.
