and sam adams afaik hasnt been on national television either

tbph i find his flow on "donald trump" generic enough to be inoffensive, and the beat's not bad; i could see something like this, but with an actual hook of some sort, being a hit

(nb I said flow not lyrics — if i tried to pay attention to the latter i would get rolling-induced eyestrain before he stops to take a breath)

mike posner has hits, i wouldn't be surprised if this other stuff became popular

i don't find it very interesting tho bcuz it pretty much exists in its own universe

btw i think it's wrongheaded to say that frat guys aren't into popular rap anymore -- these types of dudes are into drake, kanye, wiz and cudi especially

lupe is gonna sell 250k albums this week, i think males 18-25 are prob a large part of his fanbase

J0rdan S., Saturday, 12 March 2011 23:33 (five years ago) Permalink

wiz is a big point of crossover tho

i heard about sam adams via this (black) aspiring rapper dude who is in a frat that would sometimes link to his shit on facebook (this was before i hid him from my news feed)

The reason why wale's album bricked is cuz he and his label tried to connect with that market but I don't think he's fratty enough

His restarted career with maybach music seems to make more sense to me

j0rdan i know lupe & those guys are big w/ frat audiences too.

i think this is a break w/ that though ... these are artists who are frat-popular w/out being otherwise popular

deej, Sunday, 13 March 2011 01:13 (five years ago) Permalink

this shit is appalling, want to declare 100% allegiance w/goon crew on this, but "more popular than odd future" = because of YouTube views? not sure that's really a reliable gauge of popularity, tyler's on national tv, these guys are Popular On The Internet

lol IOW co-sign w/deej's last post. frat types are into all kinds of lame shit that normal ppl are repulsed by

five gone cats from Boston (underrated aerosmith bootlegs I have owned), Sunday, 13 March 2011 01:19 (five years ago) Permalink

i know thats not proof but there is no proof of anything any more -- we're lost in a sea of non-evidence of popularity -- my pt in bringing up youtube views is to show that just because we hear a lot about odd future in our social world doesnt mean there isnt another world out there that is paying attention to different stuff

i think the odd future focus of our blogosphere lately has been a bit myopic

& jordan's dismissive "well thats just like regional rap else where" thing ... so?? do those ppl deserve less weight than us because some of us happen to have blogs or write for publications?

deej, Sunday, 13 March 2011 01:23 (five years ago) Permalink

another world out there that is paying attention to different stuff

this has been the case throughout history though - as long as I've been listening to music I've been occasionally running across stuff where I go "really? people like that?" and then it turns out there's a whole huge demographic that just was off my general radar. yr right w/general observation that one's own focus tends to distort the broader picture but the broader picture has always kind of been more a conceit than an Actually Obtainable Thing

imo

five gone cats from Boston (underrated aerosmith bootlegs I have owned), Sunday, 13 March 2011 01:26 (five years ago) Permalink

but my main point was everybody otm this music is terrible

five gone cats from Boston (underrated aerosmith bootlegs I have owned), Sunday, 13 March 2011 01:27 (five years ago) Permalink

i guess i was teh one to big challenge on that since i claimed these guys are bigger than odd future but allow me to posit it this way then: "it is my theory that this stuff is actually galvanizing a really large group of people with considerably less media attention, a group of people the size of which is underestimated & may in fact exceed the popularity of a group like odd future, possibly"

deej otm i know nothing of these frat rappers but i knew some frat boys and i've heard of like phish and widespread panic and the "underground" frat circuit is not to be underestimated.

ullr saves (gbx), Sunday, 13 March 2011 01:30 (five years ago) Permalink

these guys get youtube hits sure but would people really buy this stuff

like are people listening to this for reasons beyond the lol irony factor of white dudes rapping

dayo, Sunday, 13 March 2011 01:32 (five years ago) Permalink

yeah I can dig that, I mean what I'd say then is lots of popular stuff isn't really that interesting & that's why people who care about rap might have something to say about Odd Future but not about this -- it's just kind of a depressing albeit well-liked among some people thing, you know? I mean this is how I feel about pop & pop crit for the past 5+ years, myself, it's like lots of smart people wanna have something to say about Justin Bieber who I think deserves about exactly as much att'n as this stuff, because the music is garbage. And it always feels forced when mainstream critics are writing about what feels/sounds like a wasteland of crap in the pop world at the moment. You know? so odd future: if you love rap, you can sink your teeth into it, even if you don't like it you'll be able to get some riffs going about it, it feels worth talking. This? all you can really say is "yup...some people think McDonald's is great food to feed to your children, too" - food critics don't write about McDonald's, right

I wasn't dismissing Kevin's point about Sam Adams, but the reality is that his popularity is prob skewed in the New England area -- I hear ace hood on the radio a ton here but I don't think it means that he's popular elsewhere

I think they're less deserving of our attention cuz the music sucks

thing is like - unlike OF, these guys are not being pushed by critics...or rap blogs...or MTV or anything - yet they're still well-known among a certain cohort of ppl. that means something, i'm not sure what

sublime is also well known among a certain cohort of ppl, so is O.A.R.

dayo, Sunday, 13 March 2011 01:41 (five years ago) Permalink

idk yes the music is terrible (to my ears) but if they can garner some kind of following in this day of balkanized music taste and make a living off of this, and the music is harmless, more power to them I guess, even if they won't be blowing up on pitchfork anytime soon

He was never as terrible as people made him out to be. He did the whole "little brother discovers your Native Tongues CDs" thing well on Blue Slide Park

lol this is very true. But I found his old puppy dog on the playground stuff kind of likeable; it's his newer attempts to be an adult artist that are insufferable. He gets worse each year imo

idk i think i like this album, although yes the idea that this is some feminist awakening does not really jive w/ the content

if the Watching Movies one is similar but better, maybe i should check that one out

Ariana's skit on SNL where she did vocal impressions was pretty great, these two seem like maybe they deserve each other
