This new joint by rich the mid, thouxanbandfauni and famous dex is cool

I gotta say though dex had some of the best records of 2016.

echoing deej's praise of famous dex with this one

he sounds like sauce walka mixed with lil yachty now, i like it better.

ANU (sisilafami), Friday, 6 January 2017 11:15 (two months ago) Permalink

he's had more good songs last year than any of the comparable rappers. his breakthrough "2 times" was more like a keef thing, most ppl just heard "drip from my walk" & knocked him as a sauce walka clone but he's way better than sauce twins & chooses better beats than anyone in rap right now

i also like abt his music that though he's v much a 'street rapper' via lineage/tradition his music isn't weighed down by trying to prove how street it is, it's just fun music that has a sense of humor about itself

I like Famous Dex's ok, but he probably has a definitive commercial ceiling after that video came out of him assaulting his girlfriend

Sort of makes it hard for me to listen to him, tbh, even though I listen to plenty of rappers who have likely done worse.

altony rightano (voodoo chili), Friday, 6 January 2017 19:31 (two months ago) Permalink

i never really identified w/ him as some kind of moral voice, or it was like never like his thought process or persona that resonated w/ me—he's an entertainer more than a narrator—so while i don't approve & it has me thinking twice about, like, how i would interview him given the opportunity, or how I would write a #thoughtpiece about it, it doesn't really affect the way i hear the music itself all that much.

but i agree it may have created a commercial ceiling—he was too late vs. say kodak whose crimes came out after the Drake cosign etc.

xp I agree with that, maybe people are responding to the tongue-in-cheek video/hook. Sort of like the response to "CoCo" and the whole "BAKING SODA I GOT BAKING SODA" bit.

i get all that but it's not actually "good"

Yeah, wasn't arguing for its quality, just its appeal. "CoCo" was also not good, but its over-the-top goonery was more appealing to me than whatever Ugly God is.

That SOB x RBE tape reeeeallly grew on me. I did not like "Anti" at all the first time I heard it (I couldn't quite get with how they rap slightly ahead of the beat) but then something clicked.

"Anti" is not even a highlight, not sure why that's the one that's getting attention. I much prefer this one:

Lebro v. Wade (Spottie), Friday, 17 March 2017 16:22 (one week ago) Permalink

Mastermind, Black Market and this new one really live up to the hype on Ross's production imo. Kinda reminds me of that 2014 Jeezy album that had a bunch of gorgeous soul beats, really like the suspended vocal sample on "Santorini Greece" in particular.

Dude has the worst "hyped up" voice in the game tho. He doesn't use it much but it's on one of the tracks here. Same one he used a bit on "Free Mason" off Teflon Don

this was produced by a kid named chad thomas, who is going into his senior year as a football player at univ of miami. he started at defensive end last season. he & ross have made some music before but that beat was way more accomplished and soulful than i would have expected.

Lebro v. Wade (Spottie), Sunday, 19 March 2017 02:05 (one week ago) Permalink

deej, I noticed you were complaining on twitter about songs that are only available for streaming and asking about how djs cope with this development. The answer, I think, is that mp3 dj pools are going to become even more important to most djs as the sale of mp3s steadily declines. My main issue with the dj pools is that they're quite expensive - at least as long as you can't actually find everything you need on there anyway. I tend to spend about $ 20 a month on afro/london/dancehall stuff anyway and subscribing to get big sean mp3s on top of that for an additional $ 20-30 a month sucks. I can send you Living Single though. They have it on digiwaxx, which is free as long as you give it a quick review before you dl it.

dope plz send. Yeah I had a dj pool sub but it kept me up on shit i didnt care about & mostly missed all the stuff i want...like do any dj pools have the new carti/uzi "woke up" record? i bet they dont, but they do have (as does amazon) the song that they pushed as a single first.
