Sometimes I feel bad about skipping (several) Thursdays on this column, but I’ve come to realize that I never meant to write this up religiously every week, for the same reason that I don’t write about every brand new record or leak already cluttering up blogland. This isn’t Julia & Julia with curse words, I’m gonna write about some stuff I feel like talmbout when I feel like talmboutit, not a dutiful batch of pithy remarks and Sendspaces you can set your watch to. So, without further ado… links and stuff after the jump! Read More

Sorry I skipped two weeks y’all. But in that time, no shockers. Kanye, Ross and Jeezy still the hardest shit out (honorable mention to Vado: slime, it’s your time!), Drake album has its moments inbetween interminable amounts of r&b self-loathing, Eminem “comeback” LP 100% unlistenable – and I’m not trying to hear it about the production credits, I love Just and Khalil’s shit too but even the better tracks could have been Game album cuts if Jayceon was all AY CUZ AY MAKE THIS LIKE METALLICA UNFORGIVEN WITH TOO MUCH ORGAN AND WE WILL ROCK YOU DRUMS but thats a rant for another time. And ultimately a moot point, good beat + bad songwriting = bad music no matter how you attempt to justify otherwise. EXHALE. But why focus on the big dogs, here’s some joints you may have missed.
