I've heard isolated tracks where he stuns me; then I hear utter shit like "Dangerous Minds" and "Violate That Bitch" and I'm wondering if it's even the same guy.
Consistency is not only not Lil B's strong point, it's also not his point period. He's playing and fucking with people's minds, and you kind of either go along with it or not. The "I'm God"s and the "The Growth"s are part of the same weird project as the "Wonton Soup"s and the "Rain In England"s.Noz wrote the best explanation for it.
Or just listen to 6 Kiss
over and over until it all falls into place.
Waka Flocka does not do much for me,
I didn't care for him at all until I heard "Bustin At 'Em"
, got to the last minute and a half, and realized that his music was actually making me uncomfortable - extremely rare.
What's also interesting about him is that he dominates these huge Lex Luger beats that actually swallow most rappers whole. Much better rappers get on those and find themselves floundering.
and I haven't heard the other guys. OddFuture are the best out of all of them by miles at this point. I mean, I haven't heard the Main Attrakionz, but I can't imagine they'd be better than Bastard or Earl.
Well no, but those were possibly the two best albums of the year. That doesn't mean there wasn't a lot of other crazy stuff - Main Attrakionz had a couple tapes including Best Duo Ever
, which was better than, say, BLACKENEDWHITE
. They're making really sophisticated beats and working in an odd lo-fi mode with the vocals pushed back and the beat up front, like shoegaze rappers.
And Danny Brown's album The Hybrid
was wonderfully weird
And Clams Casino (who made, among many other things, Lil B's "I'm God"
) just might be the best producer in the game
