so the heart emoji i typed with that isn't appearing, so now it just looks creepy.
Very late to the party, but I just want to say thank you to Scott, Tom, and everyone else responsible for this wonder of a website for the years and great writing and for fostering such a robust community. Being a part of the SG commentariat from 2012-2015 was some of the most fun I've ever had on the internet and I look back on it with love. When that direct deposit hits on Friday, y'all got some money coming too.
fuckin hatsune miku & kyary pamyu pamyu god damn.
logging in after over a year to tell y'all that dansolo has had the best takes so far in this entire comment section and the rest of y'all are dusty as fuck.
nicki minaj is op young money pls nerf
You goddamn Europeans always playing the "I was born and raised under a fascist dictatorship that tortured my father in prison three times during his life" card
"There was also Neil Portnow presiding over a 12-year-old boy playing jazz piano because NARAS delights to see today’s youths indoctrinated in the dying sounds of yesteryear." yo I agree with everything you said, but are you really gonna shit on a kid who's actually learned to play an instrument?
Ha. Literally everyone that talks to me about the classic rap station we have here has been white. I mean i'm okay with that, it's just sort of hilarious when my early20something year old friends wax nostalgically about Black Sheep when I know for a fact that a lot of these dudes' first rap experience was Ludacris's Chicken-n-Beer or something.
Yeah that's probably true. It was really funny. I only ever watched re-runs on BET when I was a kid. Not to mention that Grace Jones skit actually introduced me to Grace Jones.
I should probably clarify that I meant Benji was a fluke in the sense that it was strange that I actually liked it, since "48-year-old sad white man folk rock" is literally the furthest thing from what I ever want to listen to.
Benji was the only Kozelek output that I ever spent any real time with, and I'm glad I did. However, going back and listening to RHP and other SKM stuff, Benji may have been a fantastic fluke. Not saying the dude can't write good music, but there's only so much choked-up rambling a guy can take. I want to listen to Universal Themes, but it'll be awhile before I feel like I should. also nice In Living Color reference there Tom; you'd be a great contestant on I Know Black People.
man look: Rappers are always rapping about sexist and misogynistic stuff. The fact that it's just accepted that "bitches" are property you can buy with fame and money proves that no one is actually scrutinizing rap music as hard as they are literally every other kind of art and media. Rap music has always gotten a break from being offensive towards women because it's not *explicitly* offensive towards women. And that's weird as fuck! Like if I was a woman, it'd be hard for me to listen to a bunch of dudes refer to me as a bitch. Something to steal from another guy. But we're all good with that. But rape? That's crossing a line. Why? Isn't all misogyny crossing a line? I mean I know for a fact that some of the same folks who call for people like Rick Ross's and RHQ's careers over their rapey bars love Danny Brown, a dude who once rapped "so no apologies for all the misogyny." where y'all gonna stand on this issue? can't be in the middle.
you crazy for this one marina
bruh i literally just walked out of the theater. it was great. also -- how does one go about joining the gummer's spotify mix?
"but somehow the internet (myself included) only collectively realized exactly what Rich Homie was saying today." ...but the song leaked back in December? Like how did you just miss one of your rap heroes drop a line about rape?
