This slaps, but I'm still a lil peeved at him for delivering the worst show I've ever seen a couple weeks ago (and stealing my friend's lighter to boot).

Wonder which Final Fantasy game is Aubrey's fav.

I'm undecided on erasing them from streaming platforms altogether, but removing those artists from heavily promoted playlists seems really uncontroversial and fine to me!

June 28, 2018 on Kendrick Discusses That Fan He Brought Onstage Who Rapped The N-Word
Kendrick's politics are imperfect, and - furthermore - insisting on boosting his music's value via a political lens is a recipe for eventual embarrassment. If the Kanye thing taught us anything, it should be that placing those expectations on artists and their output leads to trouble.

Maybe he should do an interview where he explains his thinking behind protecting a domestic abuser's presence on Spotify playlists.

Daytona is rap critic pandering mixed with oldhead posturing.

Man, this is good; handily the best of the Wyoming albums IMO, and - personally/relatedly - the only one I’ve been able to listen to without the storm cloud of Kanye’s 2018 hanging over. What a pleasant surprise.

All this discourse about short rap albums lately and still not one mention of I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside!

Not sure if anyone here's heard it, but dude has an incredible remix of a NIN song from years back that sorta predicted the sound of Shaking the Habitual. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CkgbmO7AEBQ Would love to hear some original material from him at some point.

June 20, 2018 on Fever Ray – “Wanna Sip (Olof Dreijer Remix)”
They had some growing pains in public to be sure, but nothing so severe as to overshadow the music IMO (which has been great, steadily evolving and more often than not offered for free). Like, if you enjoyed Money Store way back when, would think Bottomless Pit might also be your bag. Unless dick pics > music.

June 19, 2018 on Album Of The Week: Dark Thoughts At Work
Can’t wait to hear Kamasi!!! Strong AOTY for me potential based on the singles. Also anticipating Death Grips, who at this point have amassed one of the most consistent discographies of the decade to my ears. Shame that it became in vogue to dismiss/dunk on them - not totally sure how that came about

I don't think Daytona is the canonical work it's been positioned as, but that's a conversation for another day. For now, I'll just say that the Bey-Z album tops an album with a lyric like "Never trust a bitch who finds love in a camera / She will fuck you, then turn around and fuck a janitor" for me.

Consensus is boring! If this is a new development in music discourse, then it's a good one.

Also Kanye got owned? Between those aforementioned bars on "FRIENDS," dropping this amidst his multi-album rollout and totally changing the conversation, the wildly divergent ways in which both camps released music this month, Beyonce retconning herself as a member of the Throne on "LOVEHAPPY," and the fact that this is just plain better than any of the Wyoming material...feels undeniable that Kanye's now the one watching the throne, as it were. Another extremely entertaining element of theater on top of the performed romance.

Bad take possibly, but I had an extremely good time with this! Functions in much the same way as Watch the Throne IMO, insomuch as it sounds expensive as hell and escapist with hints of darkness, and Jay-Z's motivated to rap well. Also it's not exactly a novel observation, but Beyonce can rap extremely well. Sometimes music can just be fun.
