Jay Smooth is in danger of gettin memed beyond the hills with his one octave too high delivery, but he has a valid point. Memes are created by certain types of people, for certain types of people. Just ignore em Jay, theyll go away, youll see…
More worryingly prescient comments from the late DJ, this time about Madonna, from 1985.

Real heads had this off Westwood back in the Denzils, but i ain’t never seen footage!!, Love the energy as people hear the punchlines for the first time..Finesse is clunky, but who really out there does it better..
Lordz of the Underground didn’t know who they were fuckin’ with, with that “yes, Mr funky-man”, those fellas better cut it out.

one of the standout cuts on “habits & contradictions, and allegedly a kid cudi sample/rework, young Q & asap’s Rocky, go bar for bar about all of lifes possibilities. well, the ones that involve “weed+brew”.
Rocky breaks down the collaboration..
If that’s a word you can use about Gangsta Rap in the modern era, because for all the “freedom of speech” arguments of the past, it’s HARD to talk about it in a positive light nowadays.
But Fuck it, you have to..when it’s as dope as this.
Madlib loads some fire literally into the hole, and Freddy comes with it, in Gory Tek-nicolour..
“i love hiphop but.. its 2012 and we still promoting violence? then we wonder why the world is fucked.”
2Pac and Mc Ren would be very proud of Freddie Gibbs, as would Zro, for keeping this tradition of music alive in the skinny jeans era.respect to Freddie for showing us what the streets of Gary, Indiana look like forty years after the Jacksons made it famous. it ain’t pretty, but “nothing is as pretty as a pair of tiddies”- Drexl Spivey

For me, a strong centender for the best l.p of last year was “the marathon continues”, and this was the first song i heard off of it..now getting a very nice visual inspired by Nipsey’s trip to the far east, shouts dantheman.There’s multiple gems dropped in this song, all over some art of noise-inspired greatness. And those drums are hard as fuck.
“in the material world, the thought is contagious..”, that, is some rakim-type shit right there.
