i found both albums much better than I anticipated.

I liked both enough to listen to but don't think either will hold up for me or be in rotation. Per scroobius pip and his repeated mentions on his excellent radio show available on mixcloud or xfm---Kanye sounds good. but...it isn't the revolution it is made out to be and ratking, death grips, pos, and others have done just as interesting stuff. But, what pip doesn't say, which i would point out is that Kanye takes a bigger risk to fuck off his success, which is at least a little interesting. Yet, a 30something new father with a fucking hos song(s) is also kind of creeper to me.

i would probably say the following are hitting me harder than either of these records:

run the jewels
thunderbird gerard
the uncluded
ratking


I also liked GKMC. loved it actually. but at the same time, not sure how you can say kendrick lamar is a "good rapper." again, still love GKMC.

I was ok on the sadistik record, worth getting, but not blown away. he also will send it to you free, so really, hit the guy up. worth the time and i actually have three or four songs on there in frequent rotation.

I second the Joey Bada$$ talk, good record. i also liked 1999.

I finally liked a J. Cole record as well. Enjoyed Born Sinner.

I also would shout out the donnie trumpet record and the chance the rapper acid rap mixtape. For that matter, for 90s style stuff from europe, i also liked that soulslicers "slice of life" record.

You can already guess that as wildly inconsistent (worse than ever) that it is, i am also rotating in some freddie gibbs cuts off ESGN. Super pick and choose though. No quality control.

And it seems like it is not getting that much buzz around here, but Working Man is worth a number of late night spins on headphones to digest and enjoy.

http://now.msn.com/kanye-west-t-shirt-sells-out-despite-costing-120-dollars


$120 plain white T-shirt designed by Kanye West sells out Poet Thomas Tusser famously said, "A fool and his money are soon parted." But it took a $120 plain white T-shirt designed by Kanye West (with French design house A.P.C.) to prove just how many fools exist. Priced at roughly a gazillion times the cost of a regular white T-shirt, this Egyptian cotton "Hip Hop T-Shirt" bears no visible difference from a dollar-store tee. Other than the words "A.P.C. Kanye" silkscreened on the inner neckline, of course letting only the wearer know how willing he is to throw money down the toilet. But despite the exorbitant price and simplistic design, the Kanye T-shirt sold out upon its debut, along with $265 jeans and $280 hoodies.

I'm scratching my head. Kendrick is a great rapper. He raps his ass off on that record. And writes his ass off. And comes fresh with it. Pays homage and moves the fuck on. That's a good rapper to me. AND, as far as I can tell, he can rap live in your face. What else is an emcee to do?

I'm just sad that I can't be 16 years old again driving around with my friends listening to "The Art of Peer Pressure."

Run the jewels has no replay value at all. It's pretty lame really.

Kendrick is a better rapper than both Mike and El combined. And I want to have El-P's babies.

Can a free album even have "replay value"?

Wouldn't it just be "replayability"?

It's value is based solely on it's replayability. But I hear you. It has no value.

It's shallow. Which is what they wanted but isn't what I wanted. And the raps really aren't that tight. I don't know what everyone is losing their shit over. I don't think these two getting together makes for anything all that special. I liked what Mike was doing more before El and well, just wake me in 5 years when El-P's next solo jawn drops.

If you say that an El/Mike show is the best hiphop (or whatever) show you've ever been to then you've been to some awful fucking shows. Or you have awful taste in shows.
