DANNY BROWN’S ‘OLD’ - THE KID MERO REVIEW
YO I AINT KNOW SHIT ABOUT DANNY BROWN TIL I WAS AT A MY NIGGA COMBAT JACK’S BYOBBQ A COUPLE SUMMERS AGO AND I SEEN HOMIE DO “BLUNT AFTER BLUNT” AND I WAS LIKE “BRUH THIS NIGGA HAIR IS WEIRD BUT HE UP THERE FUCKIN KILLIN IT!” SO I DID MY RESEARCH AND LEARNED ABOUT XXX WHICH WAS TOUGH SO I WAS LIKE MAN I CAN’T WAIT FOR THIS NIGGA DROP SOME NEW SHIT.
READ THE REST!!!1

It’s funny that Brown gets love in that “This is a new golden age of hip hop” AND the “This is NOT a new golden age for hip hop” pieces as well as Kid Mero’s (hilarious) review but the first week sales for Old were disappointing. As in disappointing to me personally because Old is a great album and it was only like $8 on CD at Bxst Bxy.
What, a leaked MP3 is enough? While I’m sure Brown makes his money off touring, an album purchase is a vote with the wallet for labels to continue to releasing worthwhile music and support artists. Not saying that all label-artist relationships are equal but ‘Old’ definitely deserves a $ vote.

Rap writing worth reading

"In the ring, and even in the depths of their voluntary ignominy, wrestlers remain gods because they are, for a few moments, the key which opens Nature, the pure gesture which separates Good from Evil, and unveils the form of a Justice which is at last intelligible." —Roland Barthes, “The World of Wrestling.”

Maybe it’s just me, but David Drake seems to be writing at a new level of authority and maturity this week. Taking the quoted Barthes from the Gucci piece as a cue, there’s some thoughtful confrontation of the idea of artistic authenticity here.

  1. We Want That Old Thang Back: Danny Brown, Nas, and What the Artist Owes His Audience
  2. Gucci Mane on Twitter: Meltdown, Marketing…or Something More?
  3. Riff Raff’s past was thoroughly investigated by the LA Weekly…yet we’re back where we started.
