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.

April 11, 2017 on Rattle & Humble: Will Kendrick Lamar & U2’s “XXX” Be The Most Self-Righteous Song Of All Time?
Wasn't sure how to fit it into my "everything there is fun and weird" thesis, but yeah, Jens is great.

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.

Migos and Roc Marciano made great rap albums.

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.

I'm talking about persona, numbnuts. He's presenting an image. That takes one.

February 22, 2017 on The Future Of Future Is A Great Rap Supervillain
Yeah, I stuck around long enough to see the mudstorm and then left to watch Redman. I remain convinced that this was the right decision.

January 26, 2017 on Watch Anderson .Paak & His Young Son Give A Delightful Ellen Performance
Is this former NXT Superstar Danny Burch?!? It's pretty fucked up that you got bounced out of the first round at the UK Championship tournament. Hope the back of your head healed up OK.

I didn't think either of them was that good.

new bigbang album is out this week, but apparently t.o.p. has to start his mandatory military service right now, so the group is calling it quits.

entirely true. also south korea is crawling with boy bands, so yes, that is a competitive title.

Way closer to the former. His music is still great. I'm just extremely pissed off at him right now.

December 14, 2016 on J. Cole Is Making Comfort-Food Rap, And That’s OK
Yes, if Pinegrove headlined festivals. (I'm maybe the one person on staff here who doesn't like Pinegrove that much.)

Yeah, I thought it was pretty fun as these things go. Relax, buddy.

December 14, 2016 on Watch Bruno Mars Do A Delightful Carpool Karaoke With James Corden
It's more of a tonal thing throughout. There's no one moment where the Hindenburg explodes.

December 8, 2016 on Watch Madonna Do A Ferociously Awkward Carpool Karaoke With James Corden
You know that thing where someone is being nice to you for a reason (I was interviewing him for Urb magazine) but you still get the feeling that, in other circumstances, he would be an absolute dick to you? It was like that.

I had dinner with Immortal Technique once, and I would frankly be shocked if he was *not* doing shit like this.

Noname should've been AOTW. I'm pretty sure I didn't have time to process it before writing that week's piece.

I'm glad you guys all realize that I'm being serious all the time. Sometimes people think I'm joking. They are always wrong. Thanks for recognizing.

I think of him more as the chattering-teeth guy.

BET's media player is really, really screwy, which made putting this together a whole lot of fun.

October 12, 2016 on The 10 Best BET Cypher Performances Of All Time
I don't believe it. Paul talks about watching Rush Hour over and over on that album, and that seems very particular and specific. I think he was trying to sound like less of a nerd when he got famous. Paul's "Still Tippin'" verse is great, too, and that was also pre-fame.
