But Pitchfork only likes rappers who crazy or hood, man”

there's a few more, but i dunno where they are


pitchfork is honestly one of the shittier ultra hipster review websites out there and they do not know their hip hop. the writers are clearly suburban white or whitewashed wannabe backpackers who pretend to be more than that

this review sums it up well

http://www.yesyesitis.com/2011/12/pitchforks-review-of-childish-gambinos.html


they fucking gave a drake album an 8.4

that lost all credibility i ever had for them. the fact that you quote them loses all credibility you have

P4K reviews all kinds of music...they don't judge hip-hop the same way hip-hop heads do...Drake's album is good music homie, sorry.

The flow is rather clunky but I've been liking these guys lately:
Can't hate on Murs:

I'm still curious about this. In fact, after I realized you posted the Laroo T.H.H. and Turf Talk feat. E-40 video, I'm even more curious. Granted, I think the music on "Money to Blow" is tremendous but, even considering that Hyphy and/or Bay Area hip hop aren't about lyrical virtuosity, Laroo and Talk's MCing seems especially prosaic in terms of content and delivery. In short, great beat. I just wish it was given to some MC's that could do something more effective then just fill it up with tired cliches.

Laroo, Turf Talk, and E-40 are much better emcees than Childish Gambino will ever be. What "more effective" could be done with that beat? Each to their own, I guess.

eh. to each his own.

i just find it interesting that camp has universal positive reviews except from pitchfork and gambino shits on pitchfork imo justifiably. man if you get your opinion on hip hop from pitchfork i dunno what to say to you

That's such a lame argument. "Hip-hop heads don't like so-and-so artists or this kind of subgenre, they like true hip-hop." I know most of the rap writers at Pitchfork right now, and they're as big of hip-hop heads as you can get. Plus, no one should get their opinion of anything from any review outlet; they should get their opinion of things from experiencing them.

Listening to Liquid Swords again and RZA's verse in 4th chamber might be my favorite ever, maybe second favorite after Inspectah Deck in Triumph.

Liquid Swords is a classic. One of my Wu faves.

did you mean to address indesertum here? I wasn't really making an argument, I was just defending p4k/kinda taking a shot at annoying self proclaimed hiphop heads who talk shit on a lot of music because it doesn't fit into their view of what real or true hip hop should be (ie people who take that big ghost review seriously, it's fucking hilarious, but if that's how you judge music you should probably kill yourself/if you don't understand that that album is masterfully crafted/produced you are beyond help even if you hate drake/think he's a shitty rapper)

Ol' Dirty Bastard movie to star 'Boardwalk Empire' actor Michael K. Williams -- EXCLUSIVE

WILLIAMS-ODB_320.jpg
Quote:
As the deadly stick-up man Omar Little on The Wire and the fearsome bootlegger Chalky White on Boardwalk Empire, actor Michael K. Williams has played his share of tough SOBs. Now he’s going to take on a bastard.

An Ol’ Dirty one.

EW has learned exclusively that Williams, 45, will star in an upcoming film about the legendary Wu-Tang Clan rapper and all-around troubled soul Russell Jones, a.k.a. Ol’ Dirty Bastard, whose impressive mic skills and outrageous showmanship were eclipsed by his erratic offstage behavior, assorted arrests, and an early death.

Joaquin Baca-Asay, the cinematographer on We Own the Night, Roger Dodger and Jay-Z’s video for 99 Problems, is also joining the project, making his feature directorial debut.

Liquid Sword is just an EPIC album.
Easily in the top 5 ever.
