Random stuff

Frankie Tha Lucky Dog is the only person who could ever make me laugh during a conversation about Lil' Phat's death. David Drake's article on/interview with Frankie got more quotables than Great Adventures. Read it here.

The pros of being British: you can enjoy Tyga's new Freaky Tales redux song with Boosie guilt free because Kylie Jenner would be 100% legal here.

The cons of being old: you try listening to Future's 56 Nights mixtape but the sheer barrage of Ironside theme samples just makes you go and play Positive K's Step Up Front and Above The Law's Murder Rap instead.

Told y'all Troy Ave was gonna fill the void left by Hell Rell. Would still rather listen to I Know Why You Mad over 90% of New York rap made during the last 3 years, mind.

Seeing the Ego Trip site posting mixes by a white 43 year old AZN fetishist who refers to records as vinyls and has a spreadsheet of how many ethnic friends he has like Wicked22 makes me think that Ted Bawno might be real after all.

Every day this week I've checked VladTV to see if there's a Lord Jamar interview about Rachel Dolezal and every day I've been disappointed.

”Kids seem to ruin everything for these rappers. They’re taking away your focus with trying to stay in touch with me. I just think that their priorities are not in order"

Whoa @ the Murder Rap siren being the Ironside theme. Thats Southside or someones drop, cant remember, definitely heard it on other peoples songs though. p ignorant imo since that noise wearing out its welcomes a fine balance.

The Frankie articles essential.

The Frankie article might be my favourite piece of journalism since that chick interviewed the professor from Cornell University about Iggy Azalea's place in rap music and then proceeded to ask him question after question after question about why Iggy didn't shout Charli XCX out in any of her verses on Fancy.

(Go here if you missed it.)

Frankie treasures a hand-written letter Young Ready once mailed him.

This is the 2nd best thing Young Ready has done after 1 Rubber.

That chick hung up on Charli XCX is brilliant.

The Frankie article was like Christmas coming early.

"how was 106 & park more important than my radio show?"

these new southside/808 mafia ironside beat tags [fader + most of the internet are calling it the kill bill siren] are a new obsession rn
