Comments

I needed this news. Anxiously awaiting the melting of my brain.
That YBB comment is way better than my dumb joke. After sporadically commenting for the better part of a decade, it’s feels nice to make SUD for the time. This is the best community! I still read every day even if life is too crazy to participate in discussions. Opening a restaurant right before the pandemic hit was less than ideal. Anyway, lots of love to all of you from the Tokyo chapter of the commentariat

It's officially objective fact now!

Missed opportunity to have Phoebe Bridgers as the musical guest.
Not sure what I expected, but flow reminds me the late Alias and his voice edges closer to Doseone's rasp, so definite anticon vibes.
"Hip-hop's first legit TV competition." While different in style from the typical competition show, Freestyle Dungeon has been a vital part of rap culture here in Japan for quite a while. It would be amazing if they could adapt it for English-speaking audiences and have upstarts go at it against rap legends week after week.
I listened to this album so much upon moving to Japan. Crushes on everything and lots and lots of train rides. It was the perfect soundtrack.
Back home in the US for about a week. In the first 24 hours I've heard "Old Town Road" four times in the wild; at the grocery store, more than one customer was singing along under their breath. I've followed the articles here, but the song is so far removed from the cultural zeitgeist in Japan that I had no idea just how big it was.
I've definitely seen worse beer commercials.
Vince just got added to Fuji Rock and I'm beyond thrilled. Kendrick came last year and it was a similar feeling as we don't get a ton of big name Western rap artists on these shores. Dude is the best.
Wonder what Chris Burden would think of that set design.
I wish this crew would bring something like this or Eaux Claires over to Japan. Fuji Rock is already set in the most beautiful location, just give them one of the days, add in some Japanese artists, and see what magic happens. JV released all those Japanese lyric videos for 22, A Million but hasn't returned yet to play any of those songs. Though we were particularly spoiled to get Julien Baker and Phoebe Bridgers within a month of each other already this year.
Barney Greengrass makes me miss the US, living in New York, and eating fish. The spinning video, while annoying, reminds me of being incredibly hungover yet finding the strength to drag myself uptown for coffee and lox before walking through the park and sitting in the Met for hours before returning to life, heading back to the hood, and getting drunk again. Last week marked one year of sobriety, incidentally. I casually like these singles, but like many of you mentioned, I'm hoping the album gives them greater context.
My friend (diminutive Japanese woman) was promoting her bar last week by recreating the Green Mind cover (smoking inside is still a thing here). Wrong album, but I was hoping somehow she'd gone viral. Alas.
