I think Danny Brown and Vince Staples have the chops. They just need the albums.


Earl has the mind and the flow, but seemingly no will.

Earl and Tyler need to get on the same page and do something outstanding and adult. Potential is there. Tyler on the boards, and earl on the mic.

i'm enjoying the fact that a hip-hop album has gotten 3 pages of discussion on a RA board.

Re: Kendrick Lamar - Damn (April 14)

The cool thing is that I've gotten into loads of great bands from TBY recommendations... most which don't sound like RA or alt-country. Admittedly, I'm totally guilty, in my older age, of circling the wagons to which genres and artists I'll let in.

The other thing about critic hype, also, is that the hyperbolic praise doesn't really benefit the artist. They writing is pitched as such to establish their topic as a top story and make sure their name is on the byline.

To be fair to KL and artists who get his kind of coverage, the press is probably good and generates sales, but can also backfire through no fault of their own... case in point, I'm holding this record to higher standard than if it dropped w/o out the sensational hype.

me too. i can be so easily lulled into eating the same food, drinking the same beer, wearing the same clothes etc but often when i try something new or different i wish i would have sooner. i've pretty much locked in most of my main musical artists/genres at this point, but i still try and step outside my comfort zone now and again. hence my giving this Kendrick album so much time.
