    Lupe's latest single off of Lasers is "The Show Goes On"

    I admit I'm a huge Lupe fan, though I definitely didn't appreciate the bullshit that went on with the release of Lasers. I may have came halfway through my first listen, March 8th, 2011 can't get here quick enough.

    De La Soul - Oooh

    This remains one of my favourite anything ever. It is a shame though that De La Soul's stuff is generally impossible to find on the internet, including the itunes store and youtube. And until recently Spotify.

    This song in particular I haven't found anywhere I've looked.

    Whatever publisher they have must really hate intelligent distribution.

    Girl Talk counts, right? I think so probably.

    I think this album isn't quite as good as the previous two but damn if it isn't fun to listen to.

    And my opinion might change the fifth or sixth time I listen to it through. "Shimmy Shimmy Ya" over "Creep" is inspired imo.

    Personally I love the Miley Cyrus and M.O.P. mashup.

    But yeah, it's very different from Feed The Animals. I think in a thematic way it's more similar to Night Ripper -- Feed the Animals was unique in that Gillis took the format of the mashup and used it to create something that you experienced as an entirely new, original song. He made it completely his own art. It obscured the process, the technique of mashing up behind the more cohesive and stand-alone appeal of the tracks he built on that album. Whereas Night Ripper is an album that more transparently states "I am sampling" although because it was rougher, glitchier, and generally displayed more of the tics and techniques of a DJ.

    Whereas on the other hand, All Day is understated, polished, and smooth, but ultimately the same thing happens. Because he lingers so much longer on his mashups, and perhaps actually because of their simplicity and polished grace (I think many, if not most of the mashups on All Day are skillful beyond what anyone else out there has demonstrated an ability to do), again the transparency of "I am doing mashups" is more prominently on display. Instead of a cohesive album that manages to feel like something completely different from its constituent parts, All Day seems more like a series of exceptional but unrelated mashups, that happen to be thrown together on an album.

    Where Feed The Animals had Greg Gillis songs, which just happened to be performed using samples, All Day seems more like Greg Gillis mashups -- someone else's music, skillfully recontextualized, but not wholly formed into a new entity. I've never seen his live shows, but it reminds me more of what you would hear a DJ do in a live setting than what can be afforded when creating an album from whole cloth.

    I'm not sure there's anything necessarily worse or better about this, but that's my take on it. And I will say the individual mashups are some of the most exceptional I've ever heard. The pairings he does, while more along the standard white-song/black-song backing/vocals format, are really pretty phenomenal. I guess All Day feels to me like I left Hype Machine on shuffle for 70 minutes, except each track is slightly shorter and produced with a much higher degree of skill.

    I feel like Feed The Animals had a higher level of virtuosity but that All Day is more understated, like you said, but the word that came to my mind is "intuitive," which I think go together when talking about mashups. I've never been to one of his live shows either, so I can't speak to your last point. I do think that the Hood Internet gives Girl Talk serious competition, but All Day feels both more fun, more intuitive, and more polished than Trillwave to me.

    So Pink Friday is really disappointing. I think the Pitchfork review sums it up pretty well actually, which is rare because their reviews are usually indecipherably referential.

    I thought the guy actually had a good point -- a lot of the top 40 female artists out there right now have these interesting, outsize personas that are super fun, and then on record they revert back to really safe pop or R&B.

    It's shame, because I really think she's got a tremendous amount of talent -- I mean if you hear her verse on "Monster," I don't think you can come to any other conclusion. And then she spends a lot of the time on this album singing run-of-the-mill R&B. And even when she raps, very little of it approaches the sort of ferocity, vulgarity, or fun of her best stuff. Oh well.

    Definitely agree with you/p4k here. When she's on someone else's track (like Monster, holy shit) she tends to upstage everyone.

    Stolen from an SA poster, but apparently Kanye spent 2 days writing Nicki's verse, but no source given.

    And I am a filthy liar, as I did not pick up MBDTF at Target, because I saw it lacked a hard CD case. I'm hoping the deluxe edition comes with a hard case damn it, I don't like my shit getting bent or torn

    nikki is good on roman's revenge and monster. I can take her or leave her on other shit. if she actually writes her own bars, she's got some talent :^: and could actually be entertaining

    I have to echo the sentiments about the new Kanye album. He is a decent rapper but man can he put a mean track together.

    Also, I haven't seen the following rappers mentioned in the list (I haven't gone back through the 80+ pages though so I could have just missed them):


    Midaz the Beast (The El Midaz Affair, Grizzly Adams, etc. some of which is free or basically free on his site)

    Shad (I have been enjoying TSOL since I picked it up)

    Rah Digga (after nearly 10 years of no album I must admit Classic is pretty solid)
