The name of the game here is satire. Whether it's hardcore-wannabe MC's who want to ditch their old styles to act more rugged and raw, whether it's the hip-house movement, roller-blading, the cashier at your local Burger King, radio programs - De La Soul is coming after all of em. It's 1991, so their souls are not black and dying from pessimism (yet). But you can hear the first turn to that direction in Millie Pulled A Pistol On Santa, a weird title with a bright piano sample that distracts you ... read more

Modern Drake at his most tolerable is not hard to unlock. Just limit his run time to about 10-15 minutes. How disappointing or filled with filler can something be if it's not even the length of a Seinfeld episode? WITHOUT commercials?

Ya know, this EP reminds me of a bullet, because if you put both in your ear, it'll go in through one side and out the other.

Happy to follow you! While I wasn't making reviews, I was going through different eras and reading reviews on here. Thought your review of new Vince Staples was great, haha. And I appreciate the recommendation! I'll make sure to check that out; could always use more knowledge on 90's hip hop.

Hey! You might remember I messaged you a while back about what albums you would associate with the color red. I really enjoyed the responses from that one, so I’ve decided to do it with orange. Do you have any albums that really feel orange to you?

Albums I've enjoyed that are not available on Spotify. Bittersweet- ideally, you *don't* want an album to be on this list. TOMMY AIN'T MY MOTHERFUCKING BOY.
