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

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

ANU (sisilafami), Friday, 6 January 2017 11:15 (five 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 (five 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.

Listen to my homeboy Fantano (D-40), Saturday, 10 June 2017 05:30 (two weeks ago) Permalink

seems obviously better than yachty

carti & hnrdxx are good but not as good

uzi vert could pose a challenge, young thug also, but those arent out yet

Listen to my homeboy Fantano (D-40), Saturday, 10 June 2017 05:31 (two weeks ago) Permalink

obviously SANDAS and Trippie Redd's tapes are also ace this year but kind of rookie records.

this new trippie redd is fire btw, what's that string sample? I know i've heard it but i can't place it. Pierre bourne can do no wrong and this is a hell of a chorus lol

yeah id say thot breaker took no.1 spot from two zero one seven for me. i'd put the tee grizzley and gunnas 'drip season 2' in there also.

yeah ive been playing that gunna tape out a lot, hear it a surprising amount in chicago. "belly of the beast" is a jam, love that bassline

flopson, Saturday, 10 June 2017 19:37 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Fwiw some of the best songs on it actually leaked out a year ago. Lol a lot of him "making music for the fans" had to do w presentation and ppl's (inaccurate imo) perceptions of him just off in left field making weirdo music or whatever

Listen to my homeboy Fantano (D-40), Sunday, 11 June 2017 02:21 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Like yes a love songs theme makes this more obviously conceptual but a lot of what's going on here musically has obvious precedent in the "nobody" tapes for ex. This stands apart just cuz it is just a well-curated collection of songs put together by his current manager. (Bang 3 was put together by FilmOn, alki david's label; finally rich by larry Jackson and young chop, bang 2 and almightyso by keef himself.)

Listen to my homeboy Fantano (D-40), Sunday, 11 June 2017 02:26 (two weeks ago) Permalink

AlmightySo, IMO, is just as good as this, maybe slightly stronger, arguably slightly less accessible. In the context of Uzi vert, playboi carti, and yachty, I think it seems much less weird now than it did in 2013

JID sounds so much like Kendrick I've had trouble living with it. I keep meaning to give it another chance but I can't help but feel like he's building a career of one of Kendrick's voices

i put all the Valee tapes in a playlist but ya thats one of my most played for sure, he is like the personification of this thread rap music's memorable banalities lol. 'Shell' is top 5 of the year (despite coming out late last year)

flopson, Monday, 12 June 2017 03:27 (one week ago) Permalink

His voice is undeniably Kendrick-esque, and so is his flow sometimes, but his vision is so different that it's not a distraction after a couple listens. I hear more mischief in his sound, and more overt nods to west coast alt-rap, shit like Heiroglyphics and Funkdoobiest.
