Excerpts from This Mornings Alphabits: Drake Drizzle

I went from criticizing Wayne cuz of his whiny, gargling, Auto-Tuned voice being everywhere and then was introduced to his Halloween mixtape last year and was turned around. Not so much as to say that he is one of my top 10 or anything, but I definitely have more respect for him than I previously did. Think what you will. ... »»

More Reasons Why Being Deaf Sucks/Rocks: The Audacity of Mope

In the post-Matt Sharp era, I can't say that I've really connected with any of Weezer's material. Sure, there have been some catchy singles and songs here and there, but I really don't think that I could fully recommend a Weezer album other than one of the first two. ... »»

More Reasons Why Being Deaf Sucks/Rocks – I Ain't Madd

So, the Madd Rapper has a song out and it features Cory Gunz. And really there's absolutely nothing about this song that I don't love. I mean, I love the Madd Rapper as a character. During the heyday of Bad Boy, the Madd Rapper skits were always something to which to look forward when you picked up the latest Bad Boy release. They provided a nice bit of levity, providing a nice break from the glitzy club songs and occasional rugged street song. »»

MGF Reviews Chicago - Chicago (X)XXII: Stone of Sisyphus

You can't call it a comeback; you can't really call it a revival. What you can call it is a lost album that mostly lives up to its reputation, with moments of true brilliance like the title track and "Here With Me". If you're dead-set in your opinion on Chicago, grab this and listen to this. ... »»


After subjecting his fans to what has been an album-release gap that is beginning to rival that of the still-upcoming Guns N' Roses album, rapper/producer Dr. Dre has announced that he's finally done tinkering with his first new album in almost a decade, and will be ready to release it by the end of the year. Dre started working on Detox (as it's reportedly still going to be titled) back in 2004, though after several studio sessions, he decided to temporarily shelf it in order to focus more on producing material for other artists, including Eminem, 50 Cent, Busta Rhymes and The Game. The album's release was intended to be delayed only until the end of 2005, but that's when the shenanigans began... »»

MGF Reviews The Grouch - Show You the World

The Grouch – Show You the World Legendary Music / ADA (4/8/08) Hip-hop / Rap It's been about 15 years since the West Coast consistently dominated the hip-hop scene. Despite the continued presence of tired acts like Snoop Dogg and his Dogg Pound (actual combined age in human years: infinity), the truth is that California's peak lasted about two years, ending when names like "Newt Gingrich" were being introduced to the American public. The independent scene out in Cali has been trying to find its footing amid the state's rap stereotype (gangsta lyrics, dated g-funk beats), and if anyone's going to lead the left coast into the light, it might as well be The Grouch. »»

MGF Reviews The Dirtball - Crook County

The Dirtball - Crook County Suburban Noize (5/13/08) Rap rock Hailfar and bustification, jessup! This here good ol' boy from up in the woods of Oregon state (believe you me, brother, they might be on the wrong side of the Mason-Dixon but them Oregonians is country as a chicken coop) what calls himself The Dirtball shore can spit out them rhymes. This here saltine rapper has the kinda flow that them slow-talkin so-and-so's from Houston can only dream about. Ain't this the kicker, though: I was playin' The Dirtball's new rekkid, Crook County for Ralphie from up the street, and as soon as the beat hit he says to me, "Hell, I know this one. I still play this game on the N64 all the damn time." Ralphie, now, he ain't quite right on account of his daddy used to use him for a toilet when he was a pup, but damned if he didn't get this one dead to rights. This Dirtball feller rhymes better than any cracker got a right to, but the hooks jes' plain ain't there mister. »»

MGF Reviews Atmosphere - When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold

Atmosphere - When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold Rhymesayers (4/22/08) Hip-hop / Rap Much like the Coen Brothers, Atmosphere are a two-man outfit from Minnesota; also like Joel & Ethan Coen, they take a genre known for being a spectacle of macho violence and add an introspective, personal flair to it. Made up of emcee Slug and producer Ant, Atmosphere are the pioneers of what many refer to as "emo rap". Rather than drumming up some inauthentic rhymes about the usual hip-hop subjects, Slug tells a story in every track and delves into the emotional side of his characters' lives and loves. While a lot of Atmosphere's stuff is serious in lyrical tone and mood, Ant provides some revelatory backing tracks, with a spacey stoner vibe on many and a lot of deep digging into some different musical styles. Together, Atmosphere are pushing the boundaries of what independent hip-hop can be in the '00s. When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold was streamed on their MySpace page on 4/20 before being released on Tuesday. We kick off with "Like The Rest of Us", which is a poor choice for an album opener. It's built around a piano line that sounds like an augment to a bass-driven beat that isn't actually there, it just sounds like it should be. The song is quiet and introspective, definitely falling into that "emo rap" category, but it seems like a mid-album track and it feels out of place in the opening spot. While the emotional tone of Slug's lyrics are what makes Atmosphere stand out, songs like "Me", with its Enya-ish sample, and the touching-but-depressing-paean-to-a-dead-father, "Yesterday", can feel a little saccharine. »»
