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.

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

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

Yo Gotti / Mike WIl (if only just to give my subs a workout)
Big Boi (more fun than i expected)
Kool G Rap (Mack Lean is good)

Kweli / Styles P
Killa Kyleon

Billy Woods (fills my indie itch)
Valee
Iamsu (playlist of his best from the last year. I love 'Nada')
Ballgreezy
Underachievers (idk, when i need some baps)
Kendrick (good but not my fav Drick)
Chief Keef

deej - i'm listening to keydo

this is pretty striking. i really like it a lot. where is he from?? he's got his own thing, love the beats, the whole thing is really murky and almost psychedelic weird to me like early goodie mobb or the witchdoctor album (not really in that he sounds like them but there's a real subterranean feel to it but still very funky)

Universal LULU Nation (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Wednesday, 12 July 2017 20:22 (one week ago) Permalink

now he's sampling "feelin' it" by jay-z hook...this is cool i like i can't really get a handle on him in a good way, or he doesn't seem to slot into a easy category

Universal LULU Nation (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Wednesday, 12 July 2017 20:24 (one week ago) Permalink

He's from D.C. i think his rapping is close to old gucci, but that might be because they're both influenced by 90's memphis rap such as playa fly and tommy wright. But there's def more to it.

ANU (sisilafami), Wednesday, 12 July 2017 20:56 (one week ago) Permalink

he name drops playa fly, tommy wright, currensy (his song tribute to currensy sounds a lot more like back to the trap house era gucci to me) but I def also get a heavy dose of DC eccentricity thru stuff like yung gleesh & other Trel era slutty boyz dudes
