  • I like Yeezus, you wouldn't really call it a 'hip-hop" album though. Just bough new Man Miller's album, so far it's pretty damn good.

  • I'm just waiting on 3 projects, The Jay-Z one, Freddie Gibbs, and Dream Chasers 3

    :( I got atleast 2 weeks before I"m satisfied.

    I checked out the J. Cole album, it was okay, certainly wasn't gears towards me but there was a few cool tracks.

  • Ok, so I know you guys probably won't really feel this one but I'm in it lookin goofy and there's some things in it some of you might appreciate. We shot this in the studio one night in about 10 quick minutes just for fun. We were off that Jamo being silly. Who cares.

    I've given it a couple more listens. Still wouldn't say I'm a fan of it, but I guess it's not totally as offensive as it was the first time around. Some tracks have potential to grow on me I guess. I guess people need to push the boundaries sometimes or else we don't ever evolve, but this just feels like it over shot the mark by a few miles...

    So Zeb and Peaches will probably fricken love it.

    There's one track where he just screams and breathes heavy for like 3 minutes straight. It's definitely not "everything I'm not (makes me everything I am)". It's more like "AAAAAARRRRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! LOOK AT ME!!!!!!! I'M BEING WEIRD!!!!!!!! BOOGA BOOGA BOOGAAAAAAA!!!!!"

  • I'm not a fan of rap but they were saying on the news that Macklemore is doing a show in Seattle. Since he's a local guy its cool to see what he has accomplished in his career so far. But they said tickets were $124. wtf?

    About the only bands i would pay $124 to see would be Led Zeppelin or Pink floyd or something and even then i would bitch about the price.

    I think this might be the most underrated hip hop track of all time. Rakim is the shiz.

    Yeah, I think for now he's gettin while the gettin's good. We'll see what his staying power is. I'm hoping for the best. I fully expect he'll do all kind of free/crazy public appearances and publicity stunts in the future, it just depends on whether people still care or not. Pop fans are fickle.
