haha

i mean i totally subscribe to the theory that every element of the album contributes to the whole and wouldn't want to change a thing -- BUT if i was going to delete anyone from the record it'd totally be Wayne

oh i'd love weezyless edits of both his songs

i'd totally vote chris brown tbh - i've loved plenty of his songs before and after LTTP but i think his performers here are among the very few that hint at any actual humanity

well at least the better of the two CB songs appears without him (and perhaps more crucially, without Wiz Khalifa) on the Dawn mixtape

Poor Turrican (some dude), Monday, 23 April 2012 19:47 (2 years ago) Permalink

i might feel compelled to vote for CB in this hypothetical poll so please don't

also my hourly rate for humiliation is pretty high but i'm not saying no at this point in time

gotcher back, dude brought it on this album imo. i know tim agrees too

pretty happy that I had cause to order stuff from amazon and got a $3 physical versh

y'all are underrating weezy on "strobe lights", that might get my vote

I have never underrated weezy on strobe lights

the strobe lights are dancing
we've taken all the chances

yeah no i do think we're p much on the same page here generally but just for me weezy's presence on the album was vital in kinda idk, emulsifying the cocky/dreamy "hate you but i love you but i hate you" motherfuckers that's stoned patient aspect that i think would otherwise have got a little lost just with diddy carrying it. obviously subsequent releases in the ddm canon have further gone some ways towards internalizing the whole aesthetic so that perhaps now weezy doesnt quite seem as necessary, but at the time (and still in terms of lltp as a standalone piece) he was pertinent

also i say weezy's 'presence' rather than contribution specifically - i would suggest it's important to note all guests on the album have their characters sublimated into the lttp vibe, almost like they're mutliplicites of a single conflicted self rather than discrete entities cosigning the main body. like i might have first said ross was eminently the least essential person on this but even he works as a sort of texture of in-the-here-and-now brash celebrity unaware of the diddy/biggie melancholies to come

these are not the lines i would choose to type out to sell wayne on "strobe lights" to sceptics (though i do like his turn on it)

lil wayne's attitude on 'strobe lights' is like someone pulling the wings off of a fly

dayo, Monday, 23 April 2012 21:54 (2 years ago) Permalink

pretty devastating imo

Exile in lolville (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Monday, 23 April 2012 21:54 (2 years ago) Permalink

really fits into the dark, doubtful middle third of the album

dayo, Monday, 23 April 2012 21:55 (2 years ago) Permalink

love hypothetical polls btw, dudes should fail to realise them more often

this is so crucial yeah! but the best ones are also entirely recognisable as themselves, or at least they're basically still doing what they normally do, so it's not just straightforward self-anonymising in service of diddy, it's kind of...almost like the other way round, an extension of the sade love (and how diddy quotes those songs diddy on "coming home"). it's him identifying with what wayne, justin etc do and using them as mouthpieces.

We should also have a "best guest appearance on a version of a LTTP song that didn't make the album" failed poll.

e.g. Nicki vs Cassie vs Serani vs ??

There was a PROLOGUE mixtape?!

twinkin' and drinkin' and ready to fly (Alex in Montreal), Tuesday, 24 April 2012 17:12 (2 years ago) Permalink

J0rdan S., Tuesday, 24 April 2012 17:13 (2 years ago) Permalink

it was like 4 actual songs and then a bunch of interludes of famous fashion people speaking iirc

J0rdan S., Tuesday, 24 April 2012 17:13 (2 years ago) Permalink

there were technically two prologue mixtapes if you count the one with felix da housecat from the previous year as well

liberté, égalité, beyoncé (lex pretend), Tuesday, 24 April 2012 17:14 (2 years ago) Permalink
