Max Bell once watched several Asher Roth videos in a row.  If you remember Earl’s introduction, you’ve always known — he was taught to take your rations and guzzle them. But time changes all rappers. The Asher Roth vids have buffered. The dust from the initial tornado-like Odd Future hype cycle has settled. Earl left the […]
Brad Beatson is rocking very loose pants UGLYFRANK of ILLFIGHTYOU is simultaneously technically proficient, at ease, and captivating. Aside from Isaiah Rashad, he might be my favorite new rapper to emerge this year.

Son Raw is bringing back Eek-a-Mouse Good rap music, no more no less from the Early Man and friends, complete with a video with far more loitering than anything on Loiter Squad. I know the music press never really got over Tyler punking them with Goblin, but No Idols, Channel Orange, Wolf and now Doris […]
