I'm still not sure what to make of Kanye West.
There is something compelling about him.
He has to have some undiagnosed personality disorder.
I haven't heard Kendrick Lamar yet but the guy who plays sax for him, Kamasi Washington, released a fantastic and sprawling jazz album called The Epic which I have been loving.On the topic of contemporary rappers: I know every hipster and music journalist is all over this shit like a bad rash but Kendrick Lamar is totally brilliant. There's a track on his M.A.A.D CITY album called The Art Of Peer Pressure which is one of the best hip-hop "jams" I've ever heard.
If it was'nt for the internet you'd probably never even know he was a bit of a gobshiteHe is an enormous twat. I find it too hard to see past this to make any comment on his music. His set at Glastonbury was one of the stupidest things I've ever seen.
But that's for the "Kanye West-enormous twat?" thread
The Epic is absolutely brilliant alright...and the length of it!I haven't heard Kendrick Lamar yet but the guy who plays sax for him, Kamasi Washington, released a fantastic and sprawling jazz album called The Epic which I have been loving.
As for Wu-Tang, three listens in and I'm completely won over. Will be buying a physical copy of this next week.
I love the Kendrick Lamar album but I couldn't get into the kumasi Washington one at all. Musical steroids is all I hear. Pharoah Sanders and Alice Coltrane are chancers.I had a listen to The Epic a while ago. It sounds pretty good ... serious Pharoah Sanders/Alice Coltrane vibe off it.
