Not a bad way to share a release date:

Did Drake hack Sports Center and just randomly drop the CLB date? pic.twitter.com/BOcN51J0wK

I'm so glad he's working with Mike Reno on this record.

I don’t really care about Drake but hopefully is better than the other guy’s record.

i don't understand what the point of hyping up this album's guest artists on billboards is given that none of them are remotely surprising and few are interesting

And almost all of them (Jay aside) have been on songs with him in the past year.

Can someone explain the Ayesha Curry line to me

It’s a compliment to ayesha, he’s friends w the Currys. Saying other girls aren’t Ayesha enough… ayesha is the ideal wife strong/independent/amazing cook/etc

This record has a record numbers of ridiculous Drake lines.

anyway i like a few of the tracks near the end

first two-thirds or so are a slog

I’m guessing they’ll swap out the sample ASAP:

Drake has given a writing credit to R. Kelly on 'Certified Lover Boy' and sampled the singer, who is currently on trial for multiple sex trafficking and racketeering charges, for his song "TSU" https://t.co/0EEEVONP2z

has he "given him a writing credit" or is that what people get when theyre sampled

xheugy eddy (D-40), Saturday, 4 September 2021 02:21 (two weeks ago) link

the latter.

we no longer credit writers when they're criminals -- part of restorative justice

xheugy eddy (D-40), Saturday, 4 September 2021 02:52 (two weeks ago) link

the thing people are taking issue with is the sample itself really, no one's saying "the sample is fine but r kelly is bad so he shouldn't be credited for it"

ufo, Saturday, 4 September 2021 02:53 (two weeks ago) link

well i think people are implying the problem is the 'writing credit'

xheugy eddy (D-40), Saturday, 4 September 2021 05:08 (two weeks ago) link

which is a natural result of the sampling & i haven't seen anyone fail to understand this (but i'm also not really following whatever twitter convos are happening about this maybe people are that stupid idk). like the actual RS article makes that connection very clear & focuses on the sampling itself, despite the tweet being worded a little weird.

Leaving all the singles off of this feels as if he had left “Nice For What” and “God’s Plan” off of Scorpion. Need to listen again, but so far preferring Dark Lane Demo Tapes. But maybe this one is consciously “no beefs, no sneak disses.”

And it turns out it’s not even a sample. Great work all around

xheugy eddy (D-40), Sunday, 5 September 2021 03:54 (one week ago) link

that seems to be responding to a buzzfeed piece which completely bungles the story by claiming r kelly was "credited as a co-lyricist" which is obviously wrong

but it doesn't actually address the point of "it's a bad look to sample r kelly, especially because it means he gets a credit". like ok, even if they didn't actually care about the bit from the r kelly track & just wanted to use a sample of ron c talking that just happened to have the intro from the r kelly track in the background, if they do agree he's that bad then maybe they should have just left it off completely. the orchestral bit from the r kelly track behind ron c talking isn't "faint" either

Give me a break

xheugy eddy (D-40), Sunday, 5 September 2021 04:48 (one week ago) link

It’s a slowed clip from an old og Ron c fuck action, nobody was like “let’s sample r Kelly for this!!”, this is a tempest in a tea pot

It’s rain and owl noises lol

“I’m running out of ops, they’re running out of options”

My son, a budding fan of rap, and I have incessant conversations about whether or we like Drake or just think he’s hopelessly ridiculous as a brand/person

The timing of my recent visit plus Covid meant we didn’t see an MCU movie in the theater, but Donda and CLB dropped during that window so we were able to experience those events together, though we had different opinions
