I suppose so. I had a limited familiarity with them before the Fallon thing, but didn't really go into it much because I was confused by their release history and how most of the stuff is solo albums featuring the other guys.

Gotcha. For me, it's slightly annoying to have people all over Tyler when Earl Sweatshirt's really the better MC. Tyler is a fantastic producer, no doubt, but I'm often more impressed with other releases from the group, like MellowHype's BlackenedWhite, than his solo stuff. But, you know, good for them and all. Tyler wanted to get big, and he succeeded, so I can't get too mad about it.

I love that even in the age of the Internet no one has any clue what happened to Earl.

What a sad story. I know it makes me sound like a dick, but I was personally offended as I listened to Lasers, offended by what Atlantic did to the man's sound. It's very clear that the record does not have his stamp of approval, and it sucks for him that he will have to tour something he doesn't believe in. All my sympathies there.

That being said, he was responsible for the lyrics of the album, and they do largely blow. He's lost all nuance and cleverness. It's just awful, and I wish the apologists would just admit to themselves that EVERYONE mailed in Lasers.

All Black Everything is pretty cool. Apparently, Lupe likes that one too. That gives me hope.

Agreed on all three points.

"All Black Everything" leaked a few days before Lasers, and I remember thinking, "If a good chunk of the album is like this, it'll be ok." Too bad it wasn't.

Rappers is talking to me as if (come on)
We in the same boat I tell them quick no I move Coke! (uh uhh)
And you and I don't share no common bond
So forgive me if I don't recieve you with open arms (No)
It shames me to no end,
To feed poison to those who could very well be my kin (uh huh)
But where there's demand, someone will supply
So I feed them their needs at the same time cry
Yes it pains me to see them needness
All of them lost souls and I'm their Jesus
Deepest regret and sympathy to the street
I see no pity for they fix when they kids couldn't eat (so sorry)
And with this in mind, I still didn't quit
And that's how I know, that I aint shit (I aint shit)
My heart bleed but that's aside from the fact
I live from my kids and theirs and them youngins after that

From now on, if I need to do a number two, I'm going to say, "excuse me y'all while I fill my potholes."

I Don't Wanna Care Right Now, State Run Radio and Break the Chain are three of the worst songs I've ever heard and they're on the same goddamn album.

The new Gambino EP is sounding great.

So the new Raekwon is pretty meh. Actually reminds of Apollo Kids; not awful but far below what Wu-Tang is (still) capable of. The beats are totally generic, mostly no name producers on here (I guess they blew out their production budget getting Dre on Cuban Linx 2). Anyway, big letdown coming off of OB4CL2.

Yeah, he's got some good flow, but the beats just aren't there on this one.
