It got a little better right at the end, but that could just as easily have been because I started to tune the album out .

His best moment remains "Devil in a New Dress".

I do not even know what to make of Broke with Expensive Taste. I'm about 6 tracks in. This is not what I Was expecting.

A$AP Yams, the de facto manager of A$AP Rocky and A$AP Mob as a whole just passed away. He was 26. The word right now is that it was a codeine overdose, but no official statement has been made. If it is another codeine-related death, you can add it on to the list with Pimp C and DJ Screw. What a waste.

Considering A$AP Rocky has made an entire career off glorifying lean, this could have a significant impact on his music.

So I'm really liking this Joey Badass album. This is my favorite song on it.

Listened to most of it this morning, it's really, really good and I'm looking forward to getting to know it a whole lot better. The production is really strong and quite warm, and his rapping sounds very confident. I've been a fan ever since I heard his verse on 1 Train - I'm thinking about signing to the Roc / but my niggas on the block still assigned to the rocks

Also, unrelated, but I really want to commend Yeezy and No I.D.'s production on Pusha T's My Name is My Name. I'm still thoroughly addicted to this beat, that dark piano is so good.

Before you get too acquainted with B4 DA ASS, make sure to listen to 1999 if you haven't already. Killer mixtape, slightly better than the album.

My goodness, this is definitely one of my favorite hip hop albums ever. A little long, and a bit of filler in the middle, but so many highs, I don't care:

True & Livin' - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia





and a bunch more, but also for having this random ass track near the end:

Alright, time to up Black Star's debut to 5 stars.

I've had this beat running through my head all day:

"Temperature" is such a criminally underrated track, great verse from Talib Kweli too.

Mos Def and Talib Kweli Are... has been at five stars since it came out, where have you been? Respiration is easily my favourite hip hop track, ever. Randomly catching the video on Muchmusic one night is basically the entire reason I'm a rap fan.

Kweli is here in Toronto in a couple weeks, not sure yet if I'm going to check out the show, has anyone seen him live? My experience with (the admittedly few) rap shows has been pretty "meh" overall.

Sadly hip-hop shows are very hit-and-miss. Have never seen Kweli but if he was touring here I wouldn't go, unless it was a double show with Mos Def.

He's brilliant on twitter though, and recently wrote a terrific article on the use of the word nigga https://medium.com/cuepoint/nigga-please-93b5d29a615

I saw him at the Warped Tour like 10 years ago and thought that for being a rapper, he was actually ok.

I guess that doesn't help you at all.

That's a fantastic article. Also like the Louis CK quote at the top.

Indirectly hip hop-related:

There's an exhibit of Jean-Michel Basquiat's art at the AGO running until May. I can't wait to go check it out, I hope there's lots of info about his influence on early hip hop and graffiti (I'm sure there probably will be).
