As a Miami resident, I have a feeling I will be hearing a lot of this in the future...and I'm ok with it.

They should really look into using a backing band more often. Narcos killed.

Curious to see if Culture II is worthy of a Premature Evaluation and by that if Migos has risen that far in the ranks to justify it. Crazy to think Culture came out 1 yr ago tomorrow.

Really wish something was written about Beach House 3, which is really good. The only thing Tom seems to like to write about Ty is the lothario similes that preface his name. The R&B landscape is pretty tough to shine through if your name isn't Frank Ocean but I think Ty deserves his due.

Total Ye Stan over here but I wish he'd give up the T-Swift crap. It's the equivalent of Eminem rapping about Britney or Jessica Simpson.

I have absolutely loved St. VIncent ever since I first heard "Paris is Burning" way way back ago. My one minor rub during this is time is that there always seemed to be not necessarily a facade but a kinda mask that she keeps with her music. Glad to see she's getting more personal and it's definitely showing on the way she let's loose towards the back end of the song

She did do an album with David Byrne. That's plenty of new wave by association

Definitely think there should be a reference to Glory in this article. Just revisited it last week and it's seriously under-rated

At this point you need an interesting backstory to elicit a BNM, at least for established indie bands. Look at Fleet Foxes's Crack-Up, which I believe is equally as good as Painted Ruins, and one could easily argue that both Fleet Foxes and Grizzly Bear are equals in the indie spectrum---top tier but maybe not up there with Radiohead, Arcade Fire, LCD Soundsystem, et al. But there was a more interesting backstory with Robin Pecknold 's hiatus vs the Grizzly Bear guys. The hiatus was only a year apart but Robin had the whole going back to college thing along with rise of former member, FJM, to stoke interest. Grizzly Bear just took a while to make a new album, which doesnt have the same cache.

People are acting like Kanye hasn't made a great album in years. TLOP is barely a year old and is still amazing.

This album is amazing and it's becoming a travesty that she continually gets overshadowed by big sis (as amazing as Bey is)

I actually think Glory is ridiculously good. People will write it off for all the same tired reasons: Does she write the songs---no. Can she sing---no But it is impeccably produced, very consistent, and straight up bangs. Is she Taylor, Ariana, or CRJ---no. But this is definitely the best Britney, front to back, that we've ever had.

She's Indian/Sri Lankan; he's of Pakistani decent. It's not as far fetched as you'd think

Almost as tragic as when Grizzly Bear were bumped on Letterman for the Chevy Volt. Their performance of "Ready, Able" was well worth the wait though

How has that new Gucci not leaked yet? Also, any thought to add R&B artists to Status Aint Hood. I know most R&B artists sit in that gray zone between Hip-Hop and Pop but it seems like a lot of good stuff falls between the cracks here at the 'gum between Status Aint Hood and This Week in Pop

I'm not doubting that it's not targeted at specific people. Just like I'm not doubting no shoes, no shirt, no service isn't targeting specific people. But to say either of those codes are targeting a specific race is going too far.

July 2, 2016 on Chance The Rapper Calls For WhirlyBall Boycott
There is nothing in that dress code that I can see that prevents he or any other person from entering that establishment. Whirlyball has every right to enact and enforce a dress code that they see fit. Same right goes the Chance and every other person to not go to that establishment if they don't want to. But to say those rules are there to keep black people out is very obtuse. Not every black person dresses like that nor does every person who dresses like that black.

Hmm...I guess I missed the part where the dress code explicitly discriminated against black people.

Calling out JT for capitalizing on what black people invented is as dumb as calling out LeBron for capitalizing on a sport a white person invented

June 30, 2016 on Vic Mensa Calls Out Justin Timberlake For Cultural Appropriation
100it to me is pretty bad but I actually like this mixtape. It might be my favorite thing he's put out since DS2. Purple Reign was pretty great and cohesive and all but to me this has a lot of bangers. I guess part of the problem is this really is a "mixtape". There are a good amount of tracks that don't even have Future, so it feels even more like a product of DJ Esco than a proper Future album that's been given the title of mixtape just because it's free.

May 20, 2016 on Watch Ariana Grande In The Snapchat Horror Movie Dog Face Filter
I dont think Pharrell gets the recognition he deserves as a producer. I think nowadays we just focus on "Happy" and "Get Lucky" and the hat but his production credits go toe to toe with anyone and his range has been extremely far reaching. I cant count how many times I've gone "Wow, I didn't know Pharrell" produced this. Last year he produced arguably the track of the year K.Dot's "Alright" but few people associate him with the song. All this is to say I'm glad JT is working with him again. They had magic on Justified's 4 best tracks not named "Cry Me a River" and I hope they can bring it back
