The first song off "Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight" is also very good, by the way.. coming from someone who didn't really like Rodeo as much as he wanted to..

Ro is a true soul singer, garnering the spirit of Sam Cooke and Otis Redding mixed with the cool of Aaron Neville—that makes what folks in the south call, “riding music.” When listening to Ro’s music, you feel like you’re in his car, top down, with the breeze brushing over your skin.

We spoke with the up-and-comer about his cinematic sound; new album and the way R&B ought to be.

Really dude? Nothing to say about Cruel Winter being an actual thing, and not just a hypothetical from Q-tip or whoever the hell gave that quote about it?

Song sounds insanely good too, by the way. The Cruel Winter track, that is.

Here! Everyone listen to this shit before someone takes it down! It's a live rip from Big Boy in the morning of the Cruel Winter track tentatively titled "Champions" ...

Kanye West Presents "Champions" feat. Gucci Mane, Travi$ Scott, Desiigner, 2 Chainz and bunch of other mitherfuckers

Seriously... It's got that Good Summer feel to it. Radio rap, yes, but hot as hell and extremely dramatic and epic. Even 2 Chainz sounds great. It's more of a 'Ye "event" at this point than a 'Ye song, but so was much of Cruel Summer, which I love.

Louder man,
Hey dawg, how long has it been since you popped on a track or two from TLOP just to see if you felt differently about it? I'm assuming it's been a big fat fuckin' while.

I was on the road yesterday, and took the opportunity to listen to it from start to finish — "filler" tracks included — which I haven't actually done in a while at this point. I usually either play ULB-Highlights (the first half) or start with "Waves" and go through to the end. But I listened to everything, and even to me, the guy who's loved it since the start, it sounded better than ever. I no longer wish "I love Kanye" and "Silver Surfer" weren't on the album. I dig the moments of respite they offer. And taken as a whole, it's just a BEAST.

I really hope you revisit it. I think it's possible that you might kinda do a flip-flop on it.

I do this with albums I don't like initially ALL THE TIME. I check in on them to see if time away from the record has cleansed my palette, allowing me to appreciate things I once took for granted. I did this with My Krazy Life, because I did not care for that album at first. I did it with Good Kid after I saw Kendrick live. I have done it with countless Future tapes. Sometimes I still feel nothing for the album. But usually I find something I didn't notice the first time around.

I say this because I've heard a ton of great music this year from all over the music spectrum. Really impressive stuff. Some of it is truly brilliant. But there's just nothing out there, not even among the handful of TOP TIER releases this year has produced... there's NOTHING that can even hold a candle to TLOP. It sucks me in every time, and apparently not even 99% or Lemonade or Coloring Book, or long awaited new releases from Pantha Du Prince or Autechre can compete with this album.

I hope you give it another go, now that you've had some months to distance yourself from the hype and hysteria. Because Pablo delivers. If the lyrics don't grab you, the production has to (or... really should).

Anyway, that's my schpeal. Go on about your business.

Itcwas QTip and i hope to goodness he is heavily involved.

Listened to Cruel Summer today in preperation.

noisereductions 06.03.2016 09:51 PM

I dont skip anythin ob pablo. That and coloring book are just amazing to me this year.

louder 06.04.2016 12:13 AM

Aight Sev, I'll give TLOP another chance soon.. also since Kanye improved the mixing on some songs (so I heard).

I'm looking forward to Cruel Winter of course, but I really wish Q-Tip, Mos and Common were heavily involved in the project, which doesn't seem so realistic at this point. :(

Severian 06.04.2016 08:35 AM

Did you check the song out? It's a freakin' behemoth. Though like I said, it doesn't really sound like a straight up 'Ye song. That's fine though. I want GOOD Music to succeed as a label. I don't want it to just be a vehicle for self-promotion like OVO.

Yes, listen to TLOP start to finish. Give it another go, as it were. I feel like it's been a more consistently celebrated record than even Yeezus was, and once you accept the fact that it's Ye in "committee"-mode, rather than a Kanye-show album (read: more MBDTF than 808's or Yeezus), it goes down more smoothly as a whole.

Take your time of course, but remember ... I hauled ass to listen to I Don't Like Shit... again last time we talked about that, and took your words of praise to heart while I re-evaluated an album I'd largely written off. No pressure though ;)

louder 06.06.2016 01:52 PM

ELDORADO is finally up on Spotify.. so maybe it's time for a certain someone *uhm* to check it out. ;)

New Vic Mensa EP, download for free: http://pitchfork.com/news/65860-vic-...alot-going-on/

 


The cover art is lame.. but he's a talented dude. Loved "Down on My Luck" and his verse on Wolves. I'll give it a chance.

pepper_green 06.06.2016 07:31 PM

TLOP is Kanye being lazy. it's amazing how really stupid he sounds when gone a long time without hearing the record. TLOP is the most childish pop/star stupid rap record of 2016. boring album.

his feel good dream of " having evil porn hot thick ass sex with a dark light shade girl with questionable good pussy' has faded and now he should just focus on being a daddy. with his old ass. welcome to fatherhood and normal sex Ye. it's over Kanye unless you can get the other ugly sisters to lick yr brown balls.

don't promote it like it's the shit unless yr Muhammad Ali.

too bad he's as boring as searching for a four leaf clover. good looking black kid MTV.com ready. can't rap, tattoos, sounds like a ready made Micky dee's commercial. yeah, he suck!! he's yr mellineminem generations's Tommy Tutone.

oh look, he has 'southside' tattooed on his neck!!! oh cool! he must be from the southside, throws rocks and slams killer pussy. I bet the kids in Scotland will get a thrill out of that.

stick to yr Danny Brown and yr classic limp biscuit kids. only losers on percocets and cut molly mix with weed listen to this shit .

pepper_green 06.06.2016 08:30 PM

don't tell me otherwise. been there, done that, and stuck my finger in yr mother and survived the limp biscuit Korn era. I know a thing or two. so go do yr homework and don't be late for class kiddos.

suck on a blunt suck on nuts. ASAP!

louder 06.06.2016 09:38 PM

LOL. Thank you for funny posts.

I think Vic is a total cornball.. I mean, just look at this pic:

 


With that said, I'm starting to like it. I'm tired of rappers who are way tougher (Gibbs, The Game) or way cooler (Future, ASAP Rocky) than me.

oh come on man! he's an young asshole and should put the guitar down because he saw Prince is dead in the grocery store mag rack while buying olive oil for his mama to cook lasagna. he's better off dying his hair and trying to fuck white bitches on '16 and pregnant mommy I have a black rapper boyfriend' on MTV.com.

Sorry, but you've flip flopped too much on this topic to be taken seriously anymore. Just last week you said another Kanye album in 2016 would turn you into an honest person.

And you praised 30 Hours after initially calling it a fucking Drake ripoff. You have lost whatever credibility you may once have had. Also, you say whatever whenever, whether you believe it or not. For these reasons and many others, you are not part of TLOP talk.

It's a great album and you're probably some kind of Bitch if you can't see that. Even if you don't like every second, I wouldn't believe you if you said you didn't like Real Friends or FML or Ultra light Beam or Fade. I just wouldn't believe a goddam word of that shit.

It's already been culturally vetted and accepted as a great album. Why wage war on the world? Especially when you can't keeps focused thought in your head to save your life?

Haters can hate, but Pablo is already a classic.

Now run along and flipping flop to the barber shop, rabbit!

Severian 06.06.2016 11:16 PM

Seriously, if you can't dig "Fade" you're stuck in the safe zone. I'm not sure Kanye's ever made a more powerful song.

And if you can't dig Real Friends, you probably have no business listening to anything other than the most generic thug ass hip hop, cuz you have no taste.

If you can't dig ULB, you're probably a sociopath. As for the rest of the album, if you can't dig any of it, you probably take yourself way too seriously. Even the songs I didn't initially love sounds like gold to me now. Father Stretch my Hnds 1&2... Even FACTS. I can't believe how much I love FACTS now.

louder 06.06.2016 11:37 PM

"With only one guest feature from Ty Dolla Sign, the EP tackled issues such as the Flint water crisis, the Shooting of Laquan McDonald, and self-inflicted wounds.

The EP was highly anticipated due to the fact of the long period of time between Mensa's last project INNANETAPE which was released on the 30th of September 2013 highlighting almost a 3 year break between the projects. The project deals with a lot of Mensa's personal problems as he details his struggles with addictions to a range of drugs and suicidal thoughts."

LOL. I agree that he shouldn't get anywhere near a guitar unless he really learns what he's doing. But he's a good rapper.
