RIP TO A LEGEND. MF DOOM FOREVER.

The word legend gets thrown around loosely, but MF DOOM is nothing less. MF DOOM always left a major mark on me as soon as I first heard his unique style of hip hop. He was so different, and that was what made him relatable. That is something that can be inspiring to anyone. Hip hop would be nowhere close to where it is today if it weren't for this man. This is sad news and I'm very hurt right now, but there is solace in knowing that he'll live on forever.

Production is lovely and Erick gets much more personal than he usually does on FBZ records. Pretty good EP.

Obviously this is a pretty rough mix, but it's still interesting to hear Dev's ideas and how he turned them into Coastal Grooves. The vocals have always been his weakness and this is the roughest his vocals have ever sounded, which kind of holds me back from enjoying this project as much as the other Blood Orange projects. With all of that considered, I still had fun listening to this and he just has a way of reeling me into a project.

Hello there! What is an album that you've given a 100 score, and why so?

Simple explanations are fine enough, but detailed reasoning is of course welcome. If you have multiple 100s, then just pick one of them as your answer. It's for a list by the way. Thanks in advance, and have a great day!

Hello, I hope you're having a good day. I am reaching out in regards to my next AOTY Icon Interview. If you're unfamiliar with the series I crowdsource for questions. This time around for January 2021 edition, I will be interviewing PipePanic. The question is, what is a music-related question you can ask Pipe. Please refrain from asking questions as simple as "What is your favorite album?" Please also refrain from asking for thoughts about a specific album or asking joke questions. I ask that you ask something thought-provoking and ambiguous. I will be selecting the best questions to ask Pipe. If you can't think of any questions, you have a week to think about it. I also recommend checking my shoutbox before asking the question just to verify it hasn't been asked already. All participants will be credited for their questions. The interview will be posted by the end of the month. Thank you!

Hello friend, I hope you're having a great day! If you have any interest in participating in a list I'm making, here's the prompt:

Aliens have come down from a previously unknown planet, and touch down right in front of your house. You come outside, and they speak English somehow, but they ask you for one thing- to give them a human album. You have an MP3 player, but it only can hold one album of any length. You can give the aliens any album for any reason, but please explain why you chose the album you chose.

Thank you for answering (if you do), and have a great day!

Luckily my shelf + storage room has plenty of space. There are LPs moving in and out all the time so it isn’t a problem 😉

Hey there! I got my first record when I was 8 - Metallica’s Black Album. I also inherited quite a lot off my parents & grandparents and have been spending a large amount of money on crate digging & collecting. Buying in bulk (boxes) also helps. I’m 22 now btw. 👍
