Why am I so disinterested in this album? I've absolutely worn out my mp3s for the last 3 Drake releases (Nothing Was the Same doesn't even get a mention, Tom?), but I just don't want to listen to this thing...

Wait - what. The first half of Pablo is the strong part... Ultralight Beams, Father Stretch My Hands, Famous...

D'angelo... Kind of? I know I've used Prince + George Clinton as short hand to describe D'angelo, but I guess it doesn't really work as well the other way around. Fuck — Prince, we'll miss you

I haven't listened to Consensual Rape (I mean — that title is already a problem...). Is he rapping in characters like he does on Hookers on the Point? *fingers crossed Bronson hasn't been a secret horrible person this whole time cos I love that guy and it would make me sad*

Scenario would top my list of songs most fun to rap to. I guess if we're being more specific, it's Busta's verse that I'm thinking of, but still. My most fun verses to rap out loud list goes something like: 1. Busta on Scenario 2. Pimp C on International Players Anthem 3. Everything else

Watched a girl fall on her head at the last Guerilla Toss show I saw at Palisades. She got that lovely beer/dirt grime on her hair and kept dancing. Never really thought of them as that weird tho...

That Sister Nancy sample on Famous tho?! Or the opening to Father Stretch My Hands or Chance "just having fun with it!" That's Life of Pablo for me. It has these moments that just feel almost transcendent. I guess that's what Kanye meant by Gospel music, besides the obvious Kirk Franklin ties, and "wrap nori in lamb's wool" stuff. It's not alway there, but some moments on the album feel genuinely special.

Chance? YG? Leon Bridges? Why are all these guys on this thing?

Hopefully it means he's gonna lose that sandwich line?

February 14, 2016 on Indecisive Kanye Takes Down TLOP Buy Option, Is Gonna “Fix ‘Wolves'”
I haven't listened to this one yet, but these comments remind me of Death Grips a couple years ago... Sure on the outside it seems like Death Grips is just noisy try-hard nonsense, but if you actually listen, it's full of all these sweet melodies hidden amid the din. Thugga is the same thing... sure, the lyrics are often inscrutable, and he's so prolific that everything can blend into one nonsensical mish-mash of ad-libs and crooining, but it all works musically. Barter 6 is actually this kind of a sparse and beautiful lp, with these perfectly timed yelps...

Upvote. Running Chrome Version 47.0.2526.106 (64-bit) on OSX 10.11.3 I mean... if that helps at all

I also love only one. It's so pretty when pmac's keyboard, Kanye's broken auto tune and those ty dollar sign backing vocals all come together.

So.... Can we get the actual Tom rankings? I mean... I don't really get the point of keeping this list in line with the Best Music list, and I'm much more interested to see how you would rank them and why then keeping "continuity" with the "master" list.

One must not question Thugga's sartorial choices.

So was the Weezy feature recorded before or after the Carter/Barter 6 beef?

Haven't listen to this yet. What were your thoughts on Days Before the Rodeo? I really enjoyed it, but only as something I played loudly in the car with the windows down, and intermittently rapping along too. I can't even think of what any of the lyrics are right now or what the album is about, but I still loved the sound of it.

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.
