Anthony talks about 10 more albums he’s come to like or dislike more since initially reviewing them.
I'm often asked about my music listening process; this video contains the (somewhat unexciting) details.
I've been frequently asked about my thoughts on ghostwriting, specifically in hip hop, so in this video I'm going to give the reasons why I don't think it's necessarily a bad thing.
Note: I think ghostwriters SHOULD be credited, but the practice is as prevalent as it is because there's this unrealistic expectation that every single person on the planet rapping has entirely written or conceived every word coming out of his mouth. Not everyone is a writer, and I'm willing to suspend the necessity of a rapper having written their own lyrics in the name of a quality song. But are other fans willing to do the same?
Today I'm talking about how memetic humor has slowly but surely become an integral part of music promotion.
Has rap music replaced rock in the cultural zeitgeist? Hip hop is everywhere and it doesn't seem to be slowing down in terms of popularity and influence. A polarizing genre known for it's controversial figures, it's hard to deny the impact hip hop has had in the cultures of the world. How has this happened? Will it continue? In this conversation, Feefo, Beezy, Kinge, and Myke discuss hip hop's rise to replace rock music as the new cultural zeitgeist. They get into some of the reasons why and discuss whether or not hip hop's rise in popularity will continue or fall off. What happened to rock music? Metal? That and much more is discussed in this new Dead End Hip Hop conversation.
