The first 20 seconds. That’s all I have to say. Phoenix’s 1901

The projector is genious. These two are dope together, go hear ’em. Here’s Mary.

The Black Gallagher

Don’t call it a comeback, please. Cam is too funny. IDK how to take his recent music. Some are calling it hard. Okay. I’m older now and don’t take Cam seriously. Those four songs that have leaked are quite regular along with the beats. On the flip side, I still hold some vintage Cam verbage (“duck, duck, say goose“) to heart–who couldn’t?

See the Get It In Ohio video since I cannot seem to post OnSmash shit on WordPress yet… as Pusha T would exclaim Yuuuuck! Are they slangin in an MPX!?! Like the fact Cam brought it outside but what’s with those awful colored jackets? And a Dodgers hat in Chicago?

As Always Lupe has something profound to say. Why is he like the last real rapper alive?

Never seen Go Go Gadget live…

Or that wicked tight verse off Everybody Nose.

PS: Lupe’s been all over the U.S. but hasn’t been to my city (MPLS)since the The Cool dropped (minus the GITD).


Cudi Meets Television

February 20, 2009

So Cudi is schizophrenic? And that Hispanic grandma, an owl, is Cudi’s imminent death. LOL on the Prince sighting. Cool first video, like the cartoon feel. However the dreamy cartoons (dogs and witches and goblins) were like Manny Rameriz (from left field dummy!!!) and kiddy.

drakeSo Far Gone was and is thee shit. Go and hate (to your girl) that Drizzy just put you in a twirl. Or eat a pile a feces–you jerk! The tape hit on a lotta levels.

Seven The good R&B is back (see A Night Off). The R&B beats on the tape were refreshing; the spare and slow approach is the way to go. Llyod and Trey sound better with Drake, huh? Brand New is bad R&B though. Sounds like a bad track from a Ray J album. LOL, think it over.

6 Killing other people’s beats. Ye. Lykke Li. Peter Bjorn & John. And if YOU think Jay Z. The fact that Drake can dabble and have rap fans still bump Little Bit, Unstoppable and Lets Call It Off is noteworthy.

Five Swagger is a top priority to Drake. Just the way he flows on a track is so cocky; oddly, though, it’s a polite cocky. And usually I hate swagger with rappers! A few lines: “the game need change and im the motherfuckin cashier”… “even when the phantom is leased the hoes want to get in”… “double cup love you’re the one i lean on”… “diss me you’ll never hear a reply for it.”

4 Emulation (aka I wanna be Drizzy)…

Three Depth. Listen to The Calm. “to make everybody happy i think i would need a clone.” And that shit about Memphis, Tenn. Uh-oh!

2 Think! Can I just hear my thoughts for a sec, fuck! All this damn rap interrupts me pondering me. Those first three tracks, damn! Space allows me to chill and think. Lust For Life is magical: I float. “it funny when you comin in first you just hope that you last, that it lasts.” Houstatlantavegas is like the anti-club song. “ass low ass low i always request you.” Successful is Drake’s coming out party plain and simple. All this while Drake philosophizes.

One Um… too much Young Money. Did Weezy fuck up this tape or not? IDK you tell me.

If you have the chance to see Lykke Li. Do. So. Best show I’ve been to since Nas chose to revive himself right. Rarely does an artist do every song I want them to perform.

Ahem, Buddens Alert. Through the Sieve 2.18.09
