I'ma get tickets at some point when I'm sure I'm going to be in town.

Also, I'll just leave this here, in which Na'Tee owns the beat from "Shot Caller":

I bought tickets now, to make sure I've got them waiting at will call (to please a few stand-by fans if I don't turn up if nothing else), plus a spare. Am also giving Battles a second chance, even though they were a lowlight of Primavera, because I've since found them to be ideal jogging music.

How did Battles get into the rap thread?

But guys! I just discovered this guy Rakim! He has this album, Follow the Leader, it's really great.

The beat drop at the beginning of "follow the leader" is just about the best sound ever.

HOW DO I PLEAD TO HOMICIDE?

You sort of ruined it by not hitting Paid in Full first, though. Paid in Full ---> Follow the Leader is the sound of rap moving from the 80s to the 90s. So good. Rakim Allah still my stock answer to the "Greatest Rapper Ever" question.

A friend of mine is a somewhat acclaimed battle rapper, and out of curiosity I watched a video of one of his battles from 2010. I was amazed at how brutal these guys get! Do they tend be friends, or do they hate each other, or what?

Some of them hate each other, some are friends but will still mercilessly abuse each other in incredibly personal ways.

Basically none of them can make music, aside from NoCanDo.

DJ Quik breaks down his classics

With, like, gear details.  Preamps and synths and shit.  Talks about tubes... and also about a grip of my favorite records ever.

but is it hip hop?!?!?
i kid. it's really really good.

so adult swim is streaming parts of r.a.p. music.
it's pretty mind blowing. "big beast" features t.i. (old t.i., not the new super alliterative dude), bun b, AND trouble, AND is fucking produced by el-p. soooooooo this is pretty much the best thing i've ever heard in my life.

Chief Keef just signed to Cash Money, which seems like a decent fit as long as they don't try to make him do Drake-type shit - he'd be a good jolt of street-level adrenalin.  Meanwhile the rest of the majors are snapping up young Chicago street rappers, who are almost universally fucked.

'Cause I was in a rental car with no iPod jack this weekend, I listened to a lot of rap radio. Like, I knew they play a lot of Drake and Chris Brown, but I was shocked at just how much. At one point a station played three songs with Drake on them in a row. This weird Stockholm Syndrome thing set in where for a second I actually sort of liked that canny, black-Kid-Rock Wiz/Snoop song just because it wasn't Drake, Chris Brown or CAKECAKECAKECAKECAKECAKE

edit: Oh, and fact that I haven't given Carter IV a second thought since it came out has been a good thing; I forgot how depressing hearing Weezy do "How to Love" is. Hearing that song on the radio made me sad, and not in the way the song wants to make me sad.

The only track I like on Cater IV is the one with 3 Stacks and Tecca, which doesn't even have Weezy on it

Completely feel this sentiment. In case you're in the mood to get angry about rap blogs making dumb posts about Chief Keef:
http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2012/03/gawker-calls-chief-keef-hip-hops-next-big-thing

On another note, reading about Keef on SoManyShrimp got me a little bit more invested in who the hell David Drake is. Seems like he replaced Noz at Fader, also writes for Pitchfork. I found this interesting piece online.

Fav. quote comes in the 1st graf: "Number one, Iĺm writing about rap music, which is in critical terms very poorly covered. I think a very narrow slice of what hip-hop is currently being made is actually being covered by magazines. If you have any kind of knowledge whatsoever, if you take your time trying to understand the actual scope, then you immediately stand out."
