Drake is far beneath Chance's level of course, but most people don't acknowledge it yet, sadly.

And untitled unmastered. is much better than VIEWS of course.

Kendrick's first verse on Untitled 05 alone is better than that album:
Quote:

I got 100 on my dash, got 200 in my trunk
Name in the grab bags, put my Bible in the trunk
Taaka vodka on the top of my binocular I'm drunk
How can I can make them popular, pop em' when I want
See I'm livin' with anxiety, duckin' the sobriety
Fuckin' up the system I ain't fuckin' with society
Justice ain't free, therefore justice ain't me
So I justify his name on obituary
Why you wanna see a good man with a broken heart?
Once upon a time I used to go to church and talk to God
Now I'm thinkin' to myself, hollow tips is all I got
Now I'm drinkin' by myself, at the intersection, parked
Watch you when you walk inside your house
You threw your briefcase all on the couch
I plan on creeping through your fuckin' door and blowin' out
Every piece of your brain until your son jump in your arms
Cut on the engine, then sped off in the rain
I'm gone

Hey louder, Kaytranada's 99% is out of this world. I just love it. It's like a mashup of Dilla, Daft Punk in a world where "Get Lucky" wasn't awful, and MIA, with some slick verses from Vic Mensa and Anderson Paak scattered throughout.

It's really, really good. I was expecting it to be a more traditional hip-hop album. But it's more like Prefuse 73 — electronic at heart with enough hip-hop to appeal to that audience.

I'm really solidly impressed by it. Probably my favorite electronic release this year, having already surpassed Moderat and Underworld. Currently it's threatening Bey's position in my favorite albums list. A very welcome new release by a promising new player. I just fucking love it.

Yes it is a dope project! Kaytranada produced All Night off Coloring Book too. ;) He has a bright future ahead of him.

WTF? New Ariana Grande is on Spotify... but only the 4 singles are playable. Every other song you get an error msg that says it can't be played.

^ Looks great. Those features!!

Severian 05.20.2016 07:06 PM

Hey, Estelle!!!
You guys remember Estelle? Fucking Estelle!!!

Even before I liked Kanye, I LOVED "American Boy." One of the best singles of the '00s. No idea where she's been since then, but she was dope.

Looking forward to this. Smell the DA.I.S.Y. was a solid little album that I ended up overlooking in the long run in 2014, but it was good shit.

noisereductions 05.20.2016 08:40 PM

American Boy was legit.

louder 05.21.2016 02:37 AM

Yeah that's a classic collab.

louder 05.21.2016 04:37 AM

Travis just announced a new tape titled "Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight", coming soon.. which will be followed by an album titled "AstroWorld."

louder 05.21.2016 04:39 AM

"My next album, Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight is basically about all my friends and growing up here [in Missouri City]. I'm not saying that it's a trap -- we not in the f---ing projects but it's like a social trap," he explained. "It's a social connection trap from what you want to do and how you want to express yourself. I feel like everyone just gets constricted by their parents or just, life."

Severian 05.21.2016 09:54 PM

New Travis Scott, huh? Sounds ... pretty cool! I maintain that he's a strong voice in hip-hop.

Severian 05.21.2016 09:58 PM

Hey, speaking of that whole crew, I just remembered how absolutely morherfucking insanely good Pusha T's "PAIN" (feat. Future) is.

I heard it at the end of the last episode of Silicon Valley (which pretty much always has dope ass hip hop tracks in the end credits), and I was like, Daaaaamn that shit holds up!

Who's with me?
Pusha T - PAIN feat. Future; official music video (YouTube, 2013)

SFAD, I think even you would like this one. Give it a listen. Yeah it's old, but My Name is My Name is having a resurgence in Severianland, and I want you all to be a part of it.

SuchFriendsAreDangerous 05.21.2016 11:28 PM

Is there a better song i should check out from that album like one that actually raps on it? Speaking of rap i was getting off the Metro visiting my priest and i was listening to Kid A when i finally realized National Anthem is hiphopAF

That moment you realize its been an entire decade since your own favorite decade for rap!

My decade begins with e-40 In A Major Way and ends with The Game Doctor's Advocate.

Im comfortable with this, but i hadn't realized it had actually been ten no twenty years for me

SuchFriendsAreDangerous 05.21.2016 11:33 PM

30 years if you count me singing NWA tracks as a preschooler in the backseat of my auntie's 84 Celica with 12" pioneers and a kenwood tape deck ;)

My fav

SuchFriendsAreDangerous 05.21.2016 11:34 PM

Having been exposed to so much gangsta and hood shit in my formative years might just explain a lot about me. It definitely explains my bad mouth!

Pusha's entire verse is rap. Everything is rap but Future's hook. Thought you'd appreciate it because, relatively speaking, Pusha T is pretty "gangsta" by current standards. There's Pusha, there's Freddie Gibbs, there's Vince Staples (kinda), and the rest is barely related to gangsta rap.

I just think the beat is hard as fuck, the sample is insane, and the gunshots give it some umph.

Severian 05.22.2016 12:59 AM

My favorite decade of rap used to be 1993-2003, but I realized later that most of that shit was shit except for tried and true faves like Tribe, Wu, Jay, Madlib and so on.

Now my favorite "decade" of rap is the 12 years Kanye's been rapping. Hah.
