Behind you.

“Take It Back” exemplifies the effortless slipperiness of both Blood Orange and Angel’s Pulse. It opens as a gauzy, breathy chant and drifts through soulful notes from Brooklyn singer and model Justine Skye and an ethereal Spanish-language section featuring Venezuelan electronic producer and Björk cohort Arca, then barrels home on a gutting verse from Brockhampton’s Joba. Elsewhere, Dev trades lines with Chaz Bundick of Toro y Moi and hosts a summit between Tinashe and Three 6 Mafia’s Project Pat and Gangsta Boo.
Album of the motherfuckin' year.

I'm so mad that the Tyler/Goldlink/Blood Orange tour isn't stopping by Australia.
I'm waiting on figuring out where I'll be in the fall before I buy tickets. But yeah, that should be amazing.

Just as a headsup, Dev talks about Arca in the interview and refers to Arca with feminine pronouns. I'll assume that means when we talk about Arca's work, kindly use feminine pronouns.

Also, I did not know Joba and Dev were tight. That's weird, but cool.

Y'all failed this song.


Pharrell's ice-cold synths...

The fucking drums...

The melody...

Go dumb go stupid (Lights out)
Break it down like a blueprint (Lights out)
Pipe it up, it's a movie (Lights out)
Lights out and it’s boomin' (Lights out)
Hey, she hit the baddest (Lights out)
Four-door on my coupe need a ladder (Lights out)
Got the music blastin' (Lights out)
She a dance floor savage
(No cap)

It might be just me but I don’t consider Gibbs a fast rapper at all. I consider fast rappers to be rappers that I have to look up the lyrics for.
All of Gibbs’ lyrics are easy to make out while listening to the song

Freddie Gibbs is fast, but intelligible, substantive and actually enjoyable to listen to.

Unlike, say, Eminem who is all flow and no substance.

Gibbs definitely has bars that are not slow, but I wouldn’t call him a fast rapper. For example, Crime Pays starts off slow and then he just starts spitting bars, but not to the point where I can’t understand what he’s saying.

I think maybe he doesn’t sound fast, because he never sounds gassed afterwards. Where Em straight up sounds like he just yelled at you the whole time and he needs to take a breather.

He also doesn’t do that lyrical miracle “let me see how many nonsense syllables I can rap fast” shit. His bars always have substance and sound dope (When he isn’t on that anti-vax wave lol)
