Travis Scott’s Discomfort September 18, 2014
When Brad Beatson dies, bury him with velour on Listening to Travi$ Scott is frustrating. He isn’t a great rapper like Young Thug, Rich Homie Quan, or Migos—all of whom shine on Days Before Rodeo—but a stylist whose music sounds better in album format. Most of his songs are as scattershot as a random 5-minute sample from my average […]
Brad Beatson knows the fix is in on the Little League World Series Meet Naomi and Lisa-Kaindé, the 19-year old French-Cuban twins that echo Sade and their Yòrúban roots mixed with a kick reminiscent of Adele or MIA.

Although plenty of Passion of the Weiss writers and friends call the city home, I haven’t made the 99 mile trip south since. This video makes me feel like a fool for not […]
Brad Beatson is trying to get that Puff Daddy Money UPDATE: Episode 3 “White Trash Bruschetta and Henny Wings” In London, Bronson’s lost in translation while snacking on the world’s best pork buns and crushing room service. With the pinky out, he gets the finest lamb at the kebab house that could cure Magic’s cough, and taste tests beigels with […]
Brad Beatson can give it to you but whatcha gon’ do with it? I’ve got this image of everybody standing on the beach somewhere, and there’s this festival on the beach and everyone’s having a really great time. There’s like people surfing, sharks in the ocean, police cars are like pulling up on the beach. […]
