Oh so that is what the odd future thing was about. I had no idea who he was I just found the video worth seeing. Terribly sorry for starting this thread. Searched on him but didn't return anything. Liking this sort of transgressive punk rap.

What is going on with Maradona's beard? Why is it so white when his mustache is so black?

Moka, Thursday, 24 February 2011 18:14 (ten years ago) link

Mmm did a google search and found this:

I recently queried the new found hirsuteness of El Diego's chinnage and I'm indebted to Hasta El Gol Siempre's Sam Kelly for an explanation, here's his take:

Apparently... and you're going to love this... the beard has been grown 'on the advice of Diego's doctors' following the stitches he had put in his lip after his dog, erm, bit him on the mouth. So you see, it's a life-giving beard. I'm not kidding. That's a direct quote from Monday's Olé.

The fact that he went into hospital looking like Ron Wood and came out with a face smoother than baby's arse... well it's been noticed, but not by the press. I mean there's no way the dog attack was just an excuse for plastic surgery, right?

did Flower Boy really get no discussion anywhere on here at all? i didn't hear it until right at the end of 2017 but it's certainly a favourite now, so lush

ufo, Tuesday, 7 May 2019 13:38 (two years ago) link

definitly some amazing moments so far

(•̪●) (carne asada), Friday, 17 May 2019 12:58 (two years ago) link

this is sounding pretty good but idk if i'm sold on the way tyler has his voice (and a lot of the guest spots) pitched up nearly the entire time

ufo, Friday, 17 May 2019 13:43 (two years ago) link

heard this earlier. it wasn't as good as flower boy

imago, Friday, 17 May 2019 15:10 (two years ago) link

Woke up early and put on my headphones to listen through the whole thing undisturbed. I like it a lot, but it seems like there's a lot to unpack. So much going on that I feel like I gotta go through it a few more times to absorb it. I'm a little worried that there's TOO much layered to the point of detracting from the whole.

The thing that was bothering me was that I couldn't tell if my headphones were busted on I Don't Love You Anymore--the backing vocals are doing this weird peaking, kind of distorted thing as they reach the top of their line. Examples: 32 seconds, 38 seconds, 46 seconds. Can someone verify if that's just in there, or if my headphones are a little fucky?

unashamed and trash (Unctious), Friday, 17 May 2019 15:53 (two years ago) link

lots of cool sounds and moments on this, but i definitely prefer the sonic palette of flower boy. it does do an excellent job of blending the aesthetics of goblin and flower boy into something that makes sense--it'll probably grow on me.

god, i wanna watch this but Flex is cringey

skip to 1:20 you gotta see the whole freestyle

yeah, that was hilarious.

Tyler is one of those musicians where I like his music fine, but I like everything else about him even more.

I can't say his flow has really improved at all over the past ten years. Stylistically it seems mostly like edgy Soundcloud-type rap?

So Billie Ellish just got called out on Tiktok for some ten year old video featuring her singing the Tyler song Fish, which apparently has some anti-Asian racism in it. Did I miss the part where he got called out for writing the song, or does he get a pass on Tiktok?

recovering internet addict/shitposter (viborg), Wednesday, 23 June 2021 03:40 (one month ago) link

women are held to a higher standard on that

dyl, Wednesday, 23 June 2021 03:47 (one month ago) link

"fish" was from the time when tyler was also being wildly homophobic & misogynist everywhere so i think anyone who was already giving him a pass on all the other shit wasn't going to care about another racial slur thrown in. that shit all sucked at the time and still sucks now though.

ufo, Wednesday, 23 June 2021 05:32 (one month ago) link

i think the whole kerfuffle is a result of stan wars and tyler doesn’t have that kind of fanbase, and isn’t perceived as a threat to ariana grande’s pop supremacy or whatever, so they focus on billie instead (yes it’s 2021 and tyler, the creator fans are the relatively well-adjusted ones)

the mai tai quinn (voodoo chili), Thursday, 24 June 2021 12:25 (one month ago) link

still love flower boy, igor didn’t impress me at first but has grown on me tremendously

i’ll always have a soft spot for that album for keeping dj khaled from going number one and thereby influencing him to trounce through the sony building in new york and yell at everyone for letting him down

the mai tai quinn (voodoo chili), Thursday, 24 June 2021 12:28 (one month ago) link

(tyler, the creator is also a sony music artist)

the mai tai quinn (voodoo chili), Thursday, 24 June 2021 12:28 (one month ago) link

xxp Though Pitchfork’s brief piece on Billie’s apology (which deployed some mighty weasel words like “she now claims”) also simply linked to the Tyler song on YT – and their 8.0 review of the album – without really interrogating the point of why it’s ok for Tyler to say it. (The TMZ article they linked to, which was better than theirs, actually did mention it at the end!)

search term: buttrock (morrisp), Thursday, 24 June 2021 14:03 (one month ago) link

(it's also telling that they don't frame it in the context of stan wars, just - "an old video which surfaced on TikTok over the weekend," or whatever)

search term: buttrock (morrisp), Thursday, 24 June 2021 14:11 (one month ago) link

Why telling? (If I'm missing an obvious point, I blame insomnia -- in which case you can just tell me to get some sleep and leave it at that.)

I should also note that while I don't really rate his new work highly in general, his guest verse on 327 was a standout for me last year.

recovering internet addict/shitposter (viborg), Friday, 25 June 2021 05:16 (one month ago) link

new album is really pretty good, production is lovely & lush same as the last two

ufo, Friday, 25 June 2021 05:26 (one month ago) link

Yeah respectfully Lumberjack is the only track off it I gave a close listen to, and I wouldn't call it lovely or lush. What gives, is it my headphones? Could you give any particularly lush recommendation from the release?

recovering internet addict/shitposter (viborg), Friday, 25 June 2021 05:43 (one month ago) link

RUNITUP, LEMONHEAD, MASSA so far

assert (matttkkkk), Friday, 25 June 2021 06:49 (one month ago) link

"wusyaname", "hot wind blows", "massa", "run it up", "sweet / i thought you wanted to dance", "rise" and "safari" are all pretty lush?

obviously "lumberjack" is going for a different thing

ufo, Friday, 25 June 2021 08:11 (one month ago) link

I'm loving this, the first Tyler that I really feel like I can enjoy instead of admiring and respecting it

but I'm not very invested in Tyler and his whole narrative, this is a just a really fun and quirky backpack rap album which is what I'm into

same reason I will always love uknowwhatimsayin? by Danny Brown more than Atrocity Exhibition

i skimmed this, some cool & fun production which is a refreshing change of pace, still not really into him as a rapper

ILX’s bad boy (D-40), Friday, 25 June 2021 17:57 (one month ago) link

wtf the wayne verse on this is so good lol

the mai tai quinn (voodoo chili), Friday, 25 June 2021 21:10 (one month ago) link

the youngboy verse is insane also

ILX’s bad boy (D-40), Friday, 25 June 2021 21:18 (one month ago) link

i went back to igor and yeah the new one's a lot better than it. igor was him experimenting & is more about the vibes than anything else, it really de-emphasises the vocals & ends up feeling kinda formless as a result, and his different vocal style doesn't really mesh as well with his production? like his gravelly voice was important for anchoring his sound, so with him avoiding that the balance is off & the contrast between the lush higher end & the distorted bass/drums of his style clashes more.

while the new one is just playing to his established strengths from flower boy and might be even better than it too. "this is a just a really fun and quirky backpack rap album which is what I'm into" otm

ufo, Saturday, 26 June 2021 04:04 (one month ago) link

love all three, it's his imperial phase I reckon
what's good: when this dropped my 19yo daughter, who had been going out of her mind waiting, didn't know - so I got to tell her, and then we synced up streams while I was at work.

Right, upper MS shakedown OTM.

Out of what's been recommended so far, Massa is the strongest to me. The second half of it is really what I was hoping for from him, but it still sounds like through much of this material he's bored; or despite the braggadocio about how courageous he is, he's still quite guarded.

recovering internet addict/shitposter (viborg), Saturday, 26 June 2021 05:23 (one month ago) link

this is the first thing of his that's completely clicked for me I think
