New Eminem album, first single, comedy shenanigans with stupid accents riffing on celebrity culture. This will date FAST. And on two listens I'm not over keen, but you never know in the long run.
EDIT: Third listen, I like it. Apart from the Sarah Palin line. Sorry.
What's mental for me is the following line:
"You're my Amy / I'm your Blake."
Oh my lord!
I would never, ever have though, all those years ago when Blake Fielder-Civil (then minus surname) was crashing on my sofa in Camden, mocking my Wu-Wear and my rap aspirations, and raiding my change jar that he'd end up getting name checked in an Eminem song.
Brother, you made it!
Props to Rapradar. Oddly enough, I was gonna post something today about how hard Elliot Wilson's new site is smashing the game like frustrated chess players, then Camp Marvin, who care about these things, went and beat me to the jump. Forsooth:
"I've been the most regular user of Nahright.com since one month after it launched... But since the hipster movement and the over-posting of Eskay's weed carriers I have to say I'm less inclined to click a link on Nahright any more. I was worried that I'd lost a bit of love for hip-hop music and for a few months I really thought I had. Then RapRadar came along. I was very skeptical about Elliot Wilson going online and I am man enough to admit that I was wrong to be. Him being as well connected and experienced as he is, there's less room for error on his site. Without throwing Nahright under the bus with little to no evidence to support my claim, I kinda feel like Eskay and them got a little bit gassed by rappers personally and now they're the centre of a scene that isn't really going anywhere. Whereas RapRadar comes from XXL, The Source and Ego Trip so you know what you're getting, to the point, to the minute hot shit. I don't think Elliot Wilson could get any more gassed at this point [not a diss] he's pretty much hip-hop's pen. He'll go down as the guy who saw it all and wrote it all down and he knows it. So when a Mickey Facts or a Garry Spacks or whatever the latest cross dressing weirdo rapper pretending to have loved J-Dilla beats comes out he's not going to fall for it lightly.
The main attraction RapRadar has over Nahright though is the media player. Maybe I'm lazy or maybe I just don't like downloading and killing the industry any more but I'm really sick of going Sharebee, Zshare, wait, wait, wait, listen, like? Download, wait, wait, download, wait, wait. When Zshare's not working you're on Megaupload downloading bullshit freestyles until you can't be fucked any more. Did the download generation hit a wall? Or are they about to? Who do we trust?"
Ain't that the truth?
