2009 pretty dope. I'm fucking with this new Tdot Illdude album, got a bunch of bops reminds me of Don Tolliver. Oh and the new Deniro Farrar hard as bricks too. Running through the latest Crimeapple right now.
Fuck the Grammys. It's an irrelevant institution that has routinely shut out performers of hip-hop & R&B and is now facing the consequences.
There's a more verbose argument to be made, but I prefer the medium of memes:
Grammys: *continually nominates folks like Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar, Frank Ocean, Drake, et al. and yet overlooks them in favor of mediocre pop albums*
Hip-hop / R&B superstars: *refuse to attend*
It's so stupid, and I'm glad the President of the association that runs this shitshow is getting flack for it. The only requirement I have for the Grammys this year is that Mac Miller should win for "Swimming", but I just know their voting body will fuck it up and give it to Post Malone or something.
If you have a space in your vote you need to fill, I recommend OIL OF EVERY PEARL'S UNINSIDES by SOPHIE. SOPHIE is a really talented producer that collaborated with Vince Staples and Kendrick Lamar on Yeah Right.
