I tend to listen to all their albums as they drop. But I never end up sticking with them. I'm a pretty casual "fan" - more I find THEM more interesting than the music itself.

HEY, to go back to the Madlib talk for a second, I think maybe I worded things wrong. What I was trying to say was that I'd be so much more excited if he'd announce a new YNQ-related album than another hip hop collab. He hasn't dropped one since High Jazz which was part of the Medicine Show series. It's been a longtime. And as fans of Yesterdays Universe & High Jazz may know from the liner notes, there are a lot of unreleased YNQ albums out there. Heck, the Jahari Massama Unit album w/ Keriem Riggins was announced wayyyy back and still hasn't dropped.

For the record, MY first exposure to Lib was via Blue Note's compilation, The New Groove. :)

Lil Uzi Vert. That pretty much says it all right there. What the hell kind of moniker is that? "I'm a rockstar?" Who fucking says that? He'll be gone in a flash.

Chance 3, Tomorrow Bitches! :)

I liked Government Plates and the Money Store best. Some of their music kind of sickens me after repeated listens, but I can't say I'm not sort of into that. Pharmakon does the same thing to me, as do a number of noise and drone artists whose work I love.

But I agree that Death Grips are often more interesting conceptually than they are musically. But I hear this new one features guest appearances from Tera Melos, so I'm gonna have to hear it at some point.

And they have been responsible for some seriously badass tide shifts in the periphery of pop music. For example, skme of the best moments on Yeezus were clearly influenced by them. Same with Run the Jewels and the last Shabazz Palaces album.

As for Madlib... I am pretty much down with anything that has anything to do with him. I'd love to hear more YNQ, more Strong Arm Steady, etc. He's just a master craftsman. He's almost on a level with Dilla at this point.... but, of course, not quite. ;)

noisereductions 05.12.2016 10:19 PM

I agree w/ you on Death Grips regarding Yeezus, RTJ, etc.

Personally - PERSONALLY - I'm a bigger Madlib fan than Dilla. No disrespect. Just I feel like I follow Madlib much closer, pretty much for the past nearly 20 years.

On second listen, this tape is actually pretty awesome.

louder 05.13.2016 04:45 AM

Favorite hip hop project so far this year.

Why so surprised?

Severian 05.13.2016 10:46 AM

Dammit, louder you scooped me you bastard! ;)

I was gonna break this shit. Coloring Book... cool title. Very Chance the Rapper. I still want to call it Chance 3. I'm all kinds of hooked on that name, and have been ever since "Ultra Light Beam." But whatevs.

I haven't had a chance to hear it yet because I've been running around like a madman all morning, and was up half the night writing a shit story. But I'm looking forward to it.

Severian 05.13.2016 10:47 AM

Also really looking forward to hearing Kaytradana's Anderson Paak-featuring debut album, 99%.

Rob Instigator 05.13.2016 11:04 AM

I have been listening to what is ironically termed Trap-Soul

Jeremih - Oui https://youtu.be/VtcP0PFifpE

Bryson Tiller - Don't https://youtu.be/d7cVLE4SaN0 (Htown's got me feelin all throwed......)

Young Greatness - Moolah https://youtu.be/8NHerdv71w4

ha!

Heard it earlier this week. Good EDM, soul and funk beats and cool features. Some nice summer vibes.

louder 05.13.2016 03:12 PM

This new Chance is very soulful and Gospel-y.. but it's also mashed with autotune and trap. So it's a mix of old and new. Cool as fuck.
