He just might. Plus, his analysis of a couple of the lines in New Slaves is more than a bit off so Im thinking it is probably him.

Not to mention a familiarity with Chief Keef.

It was picked up on by a lot media outlets and hasn't been debunked anywhere. Azzerad is a well regarded critic, I don't think his blog would ghost write reviews from high profile musicians. Also, I love the idea of Lou Reed staying current with hip hop mixtape circuit.

When I heard this yesterday, I thought of my good friend from high school. He had "saved himself" as a concert virgin for Lou. So when we could go see Lou at the Roxy, three of us went up there to see him. I don't remember when it was, or even what songs were played, but my friend was in heaven.

And all day yesterday, the song that this news put into my head was the Modern Lovers' Roadrunner.

I don't think it was ghost writing either. But I think he had a bit of help from someone, maybe if just Google No way he got that Beenie Man right on his own. That wasn't even remotely a song played outside the 90s dancehall scene, really. I suppose he might have heard it on one of a few compilations in the years since, of course.

I really like that he listened to the album and wrote a review on it, even if he did have to source some stuff. That's what good writers do anyways.

The fact that he was sharp enough to put in that level of research is still impressive. Hell, that's more than I can say about most music critics today.

Also, I'm fairly certain this was my introduction to Lou Reed's music

After reading Laz's recommendation earlier in the thread, I listened to The Blue Mask this morning. It was exactly the album I needed to hear. The sound of the album is so spare and natural (except for the fretless bass, of course, a tone that always drives me up the wall) that it suits his songwriting perfectly. My House is haunting and beautiful, an awesome opener. The title track is absolutely terrifying.

Not my favorite of his solo output, but not too far from it either. It's a great look into his mindset from that period, and honestly one of the better midlife crisis records I've ever heard.

Oh, absolutely. In the Beenie example I have no doubt he probably recognized his voice and maybe even faintly remembered hearing that track one night and looked it up. Good catch on his part. Stopped short of mentioning Capelton too but hey he gets props from this dancehall fan!

PS Yeah Wild Side was probably my first Lou Reed track also.

When I was in my teens we kinda thought this was a bit wack:




He had another song `I Wanna Be Black` I think that was a bit cringeworthy also

Overall a brilliant brilliant guy though however conflicted. RIP.
