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

i find him unlistenable. im convinced hed be nowhere near as famous if his name wasnt 'lil wop' in the era of GUCCI MANE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ARTIST WHO HAS EVER LIVED

Listen to my homeboy Fantano (D-40), Friday, 1 December 2017 18:35 (ten months ago) Permalink

Nah, his Gucci fandom is the least interesting thing about him. He gives lip service to Gucci, but his sound owes more to Keef. Both of those things are kinda boring on their own, but I love the tape's mashup of slasher films and sugary breakfast cereal.

Also helps that he uses his own stable of producers, rather than just tapping the same old 1017 standbys. Gucci's never made a tape that sounds anything like this

Evan R, Friday, 1 December 2017 18:42 (ten months ago) Permalink

i dunno, most of his records so far i find aggressively unlikeable

lets talk about how this is the best chief keef record of the year

Listen to my homeboy Fantano (D-40), Friday, 1 December 2017 20:53 (ten months ago) Permalink

I haven't kept up with them all but that whole tape sounds like his best start-to-finish project in years to me. The mix is interesting... all these songs, like "Less Speed," that might have been played for maximum volume a few years ago, sound slightly cushioned, like it was mastered with headphones in mind

Evan R, Friday, 1 December 2017 21:08 (ten months ago) Permalink

it doesn't feel like his 'best project in years' to me in the sense that his catalog has always sort of exceeded the bounds of his projects, and capturing just one project feels like you're only look at one facet of what he does--like, to say this best represents him when there's zero melodic records on it feels wrong. I will say that this, like Thot Breaker, feels like one of his best-packaged efforts, and is definitely more well sequenced than the unfortunate Bang 3 releases, which were kind of botched even though the have some classic records on them (ie "laurel canyon")

Listen to my homeboy Fantano (D-40), Friday, 1 December 2017 22:41 (ten months ago) Permalink

I knew from the singles that this keef would not be for me. I enjoyed Thot Breaker a lot, and I was into Nobody 2 and quite a few Bang 3 tracks were great too despite being patchy on the whole. I'd love to see him put something together that was full of tracks like No and Tats. Still, for me, he's been the most consistently interesting and innovative rapper around for the last 3 years.
