big fan of the new Denzel Curry


#364

Haven’t seen the Marlowe album that Lauren Laverne was raving about this morning mentioned here, so thought I’d share this:


#365

Yes, noticed she’d been playing one of his tracks loads recently. Enjoyed the album but I think Lost Arts (the one she played loads) is still the standout. Tove the sample they used.


#366

This is great!


#367

Edan and Homeboy Sandman album incoming!


#368

new Starlito album is beautiful, sombre summer listening though


#369

Couple of new things I’ve picked up.

Nostrum Grocers (milo and Elucid)


#370

Knowledge the Pirate - Flintlock. Bit of a poor mans Roc Marciano, but I’m still enjoying it. And Roc Marciano is on it.


#371

Enjoying this album too, especially the opening 3 tracks


#374

Can’t find a link yet but there’s a re-interpolation of Dreams by Biggie on the new Nicki Minaj album ‘Queen’, where she ‘disses’ loads of male rappers, and it’s hilarious

Desiigner and DJ Khaled take the biggest hits I think


#375

this album is great btw. new yg is also quite good


#376

Another Nicki Minaj album with many stellar highs but Scorpion levels of filler at the same time :pensive::man_shrugging:t2::pensive:


#377

Yup, maddeningly inconsistent. Like her whole career TBH. Worst this time as it’s been 4 years between albums - you’d think that’d be plenty of time to add a bit of polish and drop the crap.

The album got held up whilst she tried unsuccessfully to convince Tracy Chapman to clear a Fast Car sample. It ended up leaking and it’s clearly been rejected on the grounds that the song is utter gash.


#378

What’s the track called? Interested in having a listen. She should’ve just sampled it without asking, like Nice N Smooth.


#379

My bad, it was “baby can i hold you tonight”. Track is called Sorry and was up on youtube for a bit. Seems to be gone now. Sure it’ll be out there somewhere but wouldn’t waste too much time hunting it down!

So Ice-T and Katie Hopkins beefing on Twitter is quite… weird.
