Re: “Young Gully's Redemption Rap

Listened to both of these. Truly some original music, Gully has a real talent, and great to see someone doing something different in the rap game. Looking forward to the third!

Re: “Communing with the Based God

Janis - I'm just going to point out that lil b himself clarifies that his negative and misogynistic lyrics are neither satire nor parody in the following paragraphs. I think that Nastia's line of questioning and reasoning with B himself actually clarifies and illuminates this glaring contrast for perhaps the first time and I've read a lot of lil b thinkpieces. Thanks for this thoughtful interview!

Re: “Communing with the Based God

"On one hand, there are tracks like "All Women" from his mixtape Rain in England, on which he celebrates women of all ages, ethnicities, shapes, and sizes, rhyming, Have you appreciated a woman's knowledge?/Pay attention to her comments. But then there are farcically offensive lyrics on songs such as "Swag My Bitch Up" — on which Lil B says I respect women/And I respect all people/But I don't love hoes/They suck dick and they're evil — or "Murder Rate," where he raps If you don't twerk we gon' up the murder rate.

As a listener, it's sometimes difficult to mediate these mixed messages or decide when to take Lil B seriously. So is he playing different characters?"

It's called satire&parody, u dip

Re: “Kool Keith CD Scam Exposed

When is Fanatik-J going to release this album. I heard that he successfully sued the label and that he was going to release the real album.

Re: “Treasure Island: From Electrifying Collaborations to Forgettable Muzak

If you only wanted to listen to dense and pointless meandering nonsense like Twigs, you could've just stayed in your Academy of Art Dorm room

Re: “Treasure Island: From Electrifying Collaborations to Forgettable Muzak

Wow- I guess you're not into indie rock. May want to try to not be so biased. Some of the bands on Sunday were amazing- like Viet Cong & Father John Misty...The National is an amazingly talented, cohesive band.

Re: “Bay Area Vibez: Strictly Roots, Almost

This write up seems bias and negative. It is what it is. Maybe the stages need to be synced up so good local acts aren't missed. Give Respect to the Roots Families in Reggae and Give Thanks for their presence in Oakland!

Re: “Oakland's Club 21 Defiant in Copyright Battle

And once these ass-hats come down on the guy so do the rest of them. Then it's not just one lisencing fee. From my understanding ASCAP doesn't own rights to all music. So now businesses are left to pay what? 1 or 2 other companies another fee? So Jay-Z and LMAFO can profit? Maybe I'm speaking from ignorance but these folks seem like exporters for self profit and the big artists stay rich. I never hear about how many small less known artists get help from these guys. Correct me if I'm wrong but ASCAP is a bunch of ass-hats coming down on the little guys. You can't play music in a cafe unless you pay these outrageous fees that small business can't afford and then you're out of business when they sue you. if they were keeping big venues in check I could understand that but these guys are being bullies and picking on the little guys.

Re: “Oakland's Club 21 Defiant in Copyright Battle

Having managed a few places I know the rules and this guy hasn't a leg to stand on. He is out and out stealing from these artists for his own personal gain.

Re: “Oakland's Club 21 Defiant in Copyright Battle

"We don't like to litigate," said a person who has the word "legal" in his job title. I think ASCAP's case is pretty strong here, but Mr. Wagener is being disingenuous at best with his "Aw shucks, what a shame we had to file several lawsuits" routine. Lawsuits are the reason why ASCAP employs him, and they're clearly a litigious organization. Let's call a spade a spade.
