Jesus fucking christ

I'm not at all surprised, I saw him live a couple years ago and he did the same, although the girl wasn't as young as that. Creepy as.

The NCAA National Championship football game on Jan. 8 will feature Kendrick Lamar. Should be awesome.

Finally listened to Mos Def and Talib Kweli are Black Star. Didn't catch me like Black on Both Sides. Brown Skin Lady is so beautiful.

Black Star isn't as sprawling or immediately ear catching as Black on Both Sides, but it is a much more solid and enduring collection of songs. It's tough to find a weak spot and the replay value is crazy high.

respiration is the song that singlehandedly got me seriously into hip hop in the first place thanks to a random late-night airing of the video on muchmusic, so i have a very soft spot for black star.

this is an absolutely fantastic remix too:

Fuck me.

I'd still prefer a real Madvillainy sequel, and I take that with many grains of salt, but still.

so this is a really cool time capsule of hip hop history:

https://groups.google.com/forum/?hl=en#!forum/alt.rap

https://www.reddit.com/r/hiphopheads..._back_to_1993/

the alt.rap newsgroup that goes back to 1993. there's so much gold in this. i'll just copy the reddit post:

Quote:
Link is here. Reading this feels often like hearing somebody say "yo I just heard about this cool new underground band, it's called the Beatles you should check it out".

Some notable quotes:

About MMLP on the day it came out: "This will be the biggest selling hip hop album of all time"
In 1996: "What could Canadians possibly rap about? Degrassi High?"
About Nas: "I heard his next album is supposed to be called "Still Illmatic"... when's he gonna learn he ain't NEVER gonna reproduce that ish? whatever... At least he should call it 'Stillmatic'"
"When is Dre going to make a new album? It’s been 3 years. I know many people aren’t a bit interested, but I am, I like his shit. And also, I was checking around, and I haven’t heard anywhere that he isn’t writing his own texts, like I heard somewhere around here. How do you know it and how can you be sure?"
About Illmatic: "This is a good album. This is a great album. This is probably the best debut to come out of New York since Black Moon’s “Enta Da Stage.” BUT, this is not the classic everybody’s been calling…for sure, everyone will be hypin' this album and 12" of the singles will get mad play. But a classic? A classic debut? Like “People’s Instinctive Travels…” or “3 Feet High and Rising?” Naw man. Like “Criminal Minded” or “Paid In Full?” C'mon."
Or some people were horribly wrong too:

"JA RULE = NEXT TUPAC"
"And also heard new shit from Snoop Dogg Dont know the name of it but it went something like 'Rolling down the street, Smoking Endo, Sipping on Pils'"
people in 1995 were saying Wu Tang were “commercial trash for suburban white kids" HOW???
Anticipating Biggie's Ready To Die: "personally i think it wont live up to the hype and he will be forgotten"
You can find Illmatic reviews on the day it came out, threads announcing the death of Tupac - and people being dicks about it: “hahahaha who cares” and “shut up, he was still human.. show some respect!!!”. Also, people were racist af.

Edit: Yes I know Illmatic is a classic, hence I could have put the quote at the 'horribly wrong'-section. However, he still thought it was a great album and by comparison I don't think there were that many people calling GKMC or TPAB a classic on the day it came out. Sooo, he wasn't correct, but also not "horribly wrong". More like a 'notable quote'
i've been digging around in this for an hour now. it's crazy to see some of the ridiculous opinions and wild predictions that turned out to be true.

That's very cool. Is it a cache or something?
