I done exploded, turned rapping to an art (Boom)
Swimming with the sharks (Shark), trapping when it’s dark (Dark)
Better be smart (Smart), money make a n***a aim at your body parts (Rah)
Money make a n***a change, make him lose his heart (Change)
Me and Metro bring the pain, then we top the charts (Pain)
3400 Club Drive where we started
I was seventeen with a .15 carbon (B-r-r-rah), I turned into a goblin (Rah)
I was having dreams of getting rich off of robbin' (Robbin’)
Fucked around, my grandma got sick, couldn't solve it (Who)
Two years later I got rich and I'm ballin' (Woo)




This is up there with Ric Flair Drip as peak Offset/Metro. Effortless flow and flow switching. Mr. 'Set was definitely in his bag for this.

It’s so bad it’s good.
TBH, this. Got stuck in my head, but re-listened to it yesterday and the lyrics are.. exactly what E-40 gets and deserves to get shitted on for.

Shlohmo did his first BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix a few days ago. Seems like hes been out the spotliught for a bit but he back now. Its real nice and moody, def some new stuff in their. Apparently he has a new album coming out later this month.

Bonus, Four Tet takes on UK rap:
his new album is good and the bbc mix is good

OwOtacon Good stuff. A Kanye musical would be incredible and capture him better than a (Hollywood) biopic ever could imo.
I mean when you put so much of yourself into your music, a musical just makes sense as a biopic. Especially considering Kanye has songs like Last Call or Through The Wire which already self-canonise certain events of his life within his music.

Oh I was meaning a story told through theatre would be better than any sort of film haha. I don't think a film, musical or not, would necessarily be bad but it wouldn't have the same intimacy or power a live production would have.

I agree with you there, especially because it revolves so heavily around live performances - Hey Mama at the Grammys being an important example.

Ay Kanye stans what's the story behind the car crash. Budden has hinted a few times it's bullshit and Mal was in that camp and only nods his head.
I didn't even know this was a conspiracy. People are saying Payroll tapped his shit and GLC jumped in?

A quick google says it's hollow, at that. Plus there's police reports from the night of, apparently.

If it's a conspiracy, people would believe he crashed the car on purpose to cover-up anyways, though.

The beat is pretty generic but Q kills that shit. Definitely a short ass single to drop, but we’ll wait and see.

I like that hook in the middle. Overall though, the track sounds a bit like Oxymoron Q.

I've cancelled my plan for the second half of the Kanye musical because quite frankly - a story needs a third act and that hasn't happened in Kanye's life yet. I had two ideas for endings. One was a tragic ending of his SNL performances, symbolising his moral and artistic degradation. A more optimistic ending was Reborn, symbolising a hope for a personal and moral revival.

obviously the kanye musical is a dual perspective story switching between kanye on the verge of a nervous breakdown, paranoid that everyone is out to get him, no privacy left to hind behind, and one of the crew that robbed and tied up kim kardashian, representing the other side of the camera, the fame obsessed that are able to follow a celebrities every move, until the intangible becomes reality and the two paths intersect.
