Big K.R.I.T., Rapsody, Yelawolf, And The Changing Nature Of Southern Rap

This post was originally published on this site

Big K.R.I.T. has always sounded like a throwback, but when we first met him, you could sound like a throwback and also sound like the future. Seven years ago, I interviewed an ascendent K.R.I.T., just after he released his breakout K.R.I.T. Wuz Here mixtape and just before he announced that he’d signed with … More »

Stream Westside Gunn Hitler Wears Hermes 5

This post was originally published on this site

For starters: Yes, it’s weird that Westside Gunn, the harder-than-hell Buffalo rapper, has a long-running mixtape series called Hitler Wears Hermes and that he uses pictures of Hitler as the cover art. I wish he’d call it something else! But we can probably assume that Westside Gunn is not out here endorsing Nazism. He’s been … More »

Coming To Terms With The Idea That Post Malone Is Good

This post was originally published on this site

It was the Steve Austin podcast that did it. Once upon a time, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin was the greatest star that professional wrestling had ever known.

Bhad Bhabie owes Cardi B a really, really big fruit basket. A year ago, Cardi was a reality-TV star and Instagram personality, a former stripper with a loud voice and a fun social-media presence and slightly dubious aspirations to start a rap career. Today, she’s got the #1 song in the country. That means that … More »

So There’s This French African Rapper Named MHD, And He’s Really Good

This post was originally published on this site

We were only there for three or four songs. It was enough. Last Thursday was one of those rare nights when Chris DeVille and I, the two Stereogum staffers who refuse to live in New York, were in the city anyway, splitting a hotel room the night before we jumped on a train up to … More »

Westside Gunn & Conway – “RIP Bobby”

This post was originally published on this site

Over the weekend, Bobby “The Brain” Heenan, the legendary pro-wrestling heel manager and commentator, died at the age of 73. Heenan might be the greatest comedic genius ever to make a living in the field of professional wrestling, and he was a crucial part of the WWF’s ’80s boom period. After all, it was Heenan … More »
