    happy bday MiA

    loved that review, my teenage daughter has some drake shirt she wears, i know nothing about him but will have to bust out the “as unique as the snowflakes he use to catch on his tongue while he was makin snow angels on the driveway of his momma house in Toronto before he would run into the kitchen wit his homies Kyle n Blake n have hot chocolates n make smores or some shit” line

    reminded me of “And Clarence lives at home with both his parents
    And Clarence’s parents have a real good marriage”

    i find myself re-listening to those 2 hoods every couple weeks. i really dig the 2.0 sound; “destination unknown” or “just in it for the jamz”

    I think it always has and always will be, with all arts, the case that some people create magnificent works of art that are game changers then others just follow and imitate. With technology we have so much more access to both inexpensive or free methods o making music and to huge amounts of actual music. It is such a pleasure for me to sort through it, to find those gems that connect with me and to try to share it with other people to turn them on to it. What is hard and perplexing to me is when people just blanket say they don’t like so and so genre of music, full stop. I mean, I have not connected with country pop but if someone I respected told me to check something out based on their positive experience with the music, I would give it a shot. It’s such a great pleasure and joy to be proven wrong.

    @a.joggerz- i fully agree. part of my musical philosophy is that there is no bad genre of music. there is good and bad music made in each genre.

    I Would also argue that hip hop is very much thriving right now, with a very vibrant beat scene that mirrors the free jazz movement that shook up jazz when it got stale. It’s not as MC driven anymore, or for now, much more about production, pushin that, collaboration, positivity and community. The whole low end theory, brain feeder scene is just killing it right now, and some of those guys are getting sort of big (flying lotus). It’s a bit like the trip hop thing was but without the cheesy acid jazz vibes, much more about bass, beats and space. Between that and juke/footwork there is a lot of freshness out there now.

    I have to agree with AJ here. The internet and the fractured nature of hip-hop being beat and single driven more than one producer working with one MC has just crated all these great collaborations.

    Flying Lotus doing beats for Earl Sweatshirt.
    Action Bronson and Freddie Gibbs on the new Domo Genesis with beats by Alchemist
    ElP Brooklyn’s whitest OG backpacker producer hooking up with Atlanta’s Killer Mike

    And like he said the MC’s have gotten less technical and more support the beats than show off on the mic. But the beat makers are pushing boundaries more than ever. Tons of great instrumental releases too.

    I really dug the Clams Casino beats on the A$AP record and found his own instrumental stuff to be just as good.

    Danny Brown – XXX
    Schoolboy Q – Habits and Contradictions
    Spaceghost Purpp
    Big K.R.I.T.
    Killer Mike and ElP

    Bunch of great recent releases

    And if anyone missed out last year Shabazz Palaces is the straight goods.

  23. roberto luongo Says:

    and how can I forget. Action Bronson crushin everything right now. great MC

  24. roberto luongo Says:

    recent gaslamp killer on brainfeeder is killer instrumental stuff too

  25. kayatosh Says:

    for the record i like TAB. w/ a little fat trimming it delivers. e.g., ML&C from detroit 10.18.
