I've often spoken of my hatred for Pitbull. But, as Imperor pointed out, at least sometimes he appears to be willing to send himself up and he has given us a great .gif.

But this Waka Flocka Flame fuckwit, wow. I've not been able to make it to the end of any of his songs, something I can't even say for Pitbull - at least if you are blind drunk in a club you can have a bit of a fist pump to his songs.

Waka Flocka Flame is completely devoid of talent. He can't rap, he does this shrill, shouty, faux-tough-guy bullshit that just sounds pathetic. His producers make the most lifeless, artificial beats imaginable, as if cramming as many electro hi-hat noises into five seconds as possible is the way to go. I don't even need to bring up the lyrics.

And yet, for some fucking reason beyond any explanation, he is quite popular. And not just with 15-year-old dickheads whose favourite artists are Skrillex and Bauuer, but with people who get paid to review music for websites like Pitchfork. Just read this for fuck's sake - "If Waka Flocka Flame has lowered the standards for writing in the rap world, he's also introduced a new level of catharsis." Try and make it through more than 10 seconds of either track posted at the top of the review. He is held up as one of the best in the game by some people. This isn't hardcore rap.

I just do not fucking get it.

I listened to the paint song when you were ranting about it cos I was kind of curious what type of song would induce my levels of vitriol in el cobblerino, and that was terrible enough. You will not get me to listen to another.

This is some hot shit:



The Superfriends sample on the track prior to it builds up to this one really well too.

WILL THE SUPERFRIENDS HAVE ENOUGH POWER TO OVERCOME THE GHOST THAT'S BEEN TERRORIZING THE TOWN?

WE MEET AGAIN, GHOST!

Indeed it is! The album worth hearing? Haven't heard about it. The Rebel INS has had a notoriously spotty career.

I would say it's definitely worth your time. I do think you have to have some appreciation for the Wu-Tang aesthetic to dig this one as much as possible, but it's really good either way.

I love Action Bronson's guest spot.

I wrote this in a LS 95/To get that 90s vibe

Yes. Definitely has that boom-bap feel to it. Will check this out, love the name Czarface and the Kirby-esque album art is dope. Thanks for bumping this LM.

Anyone watch DeadEndHipHop reviews? They're pretty sweet. This one's funny

From all reports I Am Not A Human Being 2 is the worst hip hop album I'll never bother to listen to.

I Am Not A Human Being 2; probably the most undemanded sequel since Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance.

Loved the review, but it didn't deter me from listening to the album. In fact, quite the opposite.

If you ask me, he has one great song, Mr Carter. The other 15 or 20 tracks I've heard by or featuring him have been uniformly atrocious.

I cannot fathom why anyone thinks he's one of the greatest rappers alive. Even on Mr Carter he kind of sucks.

Maybe he should have taken Jigga's advice. "Young Carter, go farther, go further, go harder."

Dr Carter, from the same album, is awesome.

Not atrocious. Good, actually. I'd forgotten about that one. Three Stacks shout-out. But his vocals still aren't very good.

New Tyler album is better than I expected but won't be worth the attention it's going to get. Way better production than Goblin and arguably less terrible from a lyrical standpoint, but still pretty terrible. He's still recycling the same daddy issues/Golf Wang chest beating/I'm-not-as-controversial-as-Eminem-but-I'll-keep-trying BS and it's even lamer than last time because the shock is gone, if there was any to begin with.

But yeah, much better beats. MUCH better. Hell, I enjoyed the music almost all the way through. There is a massive dropoff after IFHY, hitting rock bottom with the hideously awful mixtape filler Trashwang and Tamale, but I could fuck with an 11-track version of Wolf. Giving it a 3/5 for now, but I doubt I'll want to hear it all the way through a second time. Domo 23 (only the first 2:30 made the album, sorry Cobbs), Pigs, Trashwang and Tamale are just too terrible to sit through again.

And the new Lil Wayne is horrible, but not necessarily worse than Carter IV. The bland, uninspired production does nothing to help matters.
