Despite the fact that i found Kanye West to be unbelievably cocky on the VMAs the other night, when i saw that he had a new CD out. (i didnt realize he was releasing a new CD) i bought it. You see, cockiness can be made up for with talent... see Roger Waters of Pink Floyd for example... a very big headed guy, yes he is... but he's also beyond brilliant.
Anyway. I've listened to it once so far... it's quite good. It's kind of interesting because he is really very honest about the fact that he is cocky and was sellin out all over... and the music is good. This one even has a different kind of sound than th last two. He's still the man.
i listened to a free CD i got afterward, had a few good rappers on it like ghostface, the streets, and there were some names i recognized, and it was free, but it was all that club dance rap. like hipster stuff. i dont really like it. i like the streets, but not the others like bloc party and whoever else was on there... skank rock? i dunno.
i love alternative rap and hip hop, and some GLBTQ hip hop, but the very gay-man- club hopper hip hop is not for me
I also saw the movie Adventures in Babysitting on sale for $7 and i haven't seen it in a long time. Its an excellent 80's movie and i'm looking forward to watching it tonight.
Baby Baby, Babysittin' Blues............
