Nothing like waking up to a good old fashioned Wiley rant

From what i understand, he was supposed to have a new track with features from Nicki and Popcaan drop this week, but Nicki is gone and he thinks Drake is pulling strings with OVO over Popcaan

Top Boy Season 3 tracklist.. Looks cool but WTF at no drill? How you gonna make a TV show about London gang culture and not have an UK drill artists on the soundtrack? I guess they got Headie One, but he's moved on from that sound.

Oh shit, didn’t know the book had the same writer as Gucci’s.
Idk how many read it, but it was a pretty good book.
Might have to get this then
i got the audiobook because i forgot to cancel my Audible account for like a year and had a billion extra credits but i haven't actually dived in yet. i'd been skeptical about the quality but hearing it's good gives me hope. i'll throw it one when i finish Disney War in like six months

Thundercat's bass sounds so good here 😭 Everything does really but the six-string he's playing with whatever pedals/effects he got going on is crazy.
as far as effects go i think he's probably just playing into a preamp with a pretty modest amount of a chorus pedal. it might get mixed a bit after the fact but a lot of that sound is just cuz he's a super clean, technical player. on a tech nerd note i also noticed the drummer has his midi pad at the typical snare position and his physical snare to the left, which seems incredibly obvious having seen it now but weirdly uncommon in my recollection of live instrumentation in rap shows.

holy fucking shit this new Death Stranding trailer is incredible. i'm two minutes in and i can't stop laughing. dude in a skull mask in the oval office, Norman Reedus looking like a scraggly manlet with like four pubic hairs sticking outta his cheeks, a new character named President America - this shit pushed me from 'eh we'll see' to day one. there's no way i'm experiencing this thing second hand now

death stranding is gonna be a beautiful mess

so hyped honestly
i am too tbh at this point. i've tempered my expectations cuz who knows what a transition that Kojima's been through could result in, but i want it to be good and even if it's not it's at least gonna be weird as shit. i'm like one of the four people on earth who actually like MGSV warts and all and thinks it's actually a good Metal Gear Solid. it's dumb and vague, but that vaguery makes way less contrived than 4 or even 2 for that matter

mgs4 is the most contrived and stupid game of all time

and it's also one of my favourites because of that

mgs2 the best mgs imo tho
