Week 1, Justin Bieber's "What Do You Mean?": 4.3

I'm ready to call y'all a buncha racists.



This is from 2013 Yeezus, but Kanye's new album, Waves, drops February 11. Brace yourself.

If you didn't see him debut it on SNL, you gotta. Oh man, you gotta.



His performance of "New Slaves" on the same episode was also incredible.

Not my style at all, to the point where I can't even really judge it, so I went with 5 to be nice.

since the other topic was locked i will post my contribution here

RATE THE SLAM JAM:



personally i think this one is a 10/10, sure it isn't quite as lighthearted as some of Quad City DJ's other material but what it lacks in laid back ness it makes up for in epicness. the mixing is a little uneven but who really cares. as usual the vocals and lyrics are top notch, truly capturing the tortured souls of the artists while simultaneously invoking the atmosphere of bugs bunny and michael jordan playing b-ball in space. the background music is pretty good too

i would honestly only rate this as a 9/10 but the historical significance of the song (namely, to WWN mafia where i once posted it before being disqualified) compells me to give it the full 10/10 treatment. truly musical perfection

Okay so, Black Skinhead.

First things first: I don't care for Kanye West. I rarely listen to rap and he's no exception. I would have never listened to Black Skinhead if it weren't for this combo video:



Rumor has it when Hungrybox was losing to PPMD in that tournament, he put on his earphones and started blasting this song. And that helped him win the game with ultimate swag.

The video is great, it's very well done. And the song itself is probably the best I've heard Kanye. I love the drums, I like the rapping (even if I don't care much for the lyrics), I love the rising tension. It's great. 9/10

WWN is a place where it totally makes sense that dudes are like OMG LEMMY ; ( but then complain about rap because it is "loud"

anyway this is a ten out of ten and if you don't get it then i don't understand why you're dealing with music at all? like, are you totally thick to rhythm? are you impervious to the fact that loud and obnoxious means that it's great to rock out with your cock out? aren't you interested in the way he's talking about how his larger than life blackness makes the world hate him ("you see a black man with the white woman at the top floor they gon' come to kill king kong," "my homie was number one draft pick, they still burned his jersey in akron")

btw hungrybox is fudge awesome

also pk what the fudge was the point of carrying that crumpets over, let bonesy's worthless antagonizing crumpets die please

When a topic is made with the clear intent of provoking reactions from other users and there's no real content or discussion then yeah, that's trolling and against both forum policy and common manners. If anyone wants to actually talk about whatever music or games or any other crumpets that they enjoy then they're welcome to, but using it as a vehicle to provoke fights is not cool and any further behaviour of that sort - from anybody - will not be tolerated.

Vent your juvenile frustrations elsewhere.

Then don't include a literal rating system. A songs theme doesn't require liking a song either.

Music is generally infamous for being subjective. Isn't that the first thing you would expect with a song like this?

I could have taken my own logic and use that to rate it a tad higher, but it seemed dishonest to me for a song I didn't quite like personally(and I have no idea of it's actual merit as a rap song).

im dying of boredom at work and i see that bonesy has created an alternate rate the song topic and im like OH YES TIME TO POST A SLAM but i can't because im at work so i rush home excited to post my slam but then i see the topic has been closed and im not going to have any of that, but i realize that making another topic would be far worse, probably create a crumpets and get locked and i can't have my masterpiece review get locked so i figured you wouldn't mind if i posted one of my favorite songs in a topic about one of your favorite songs, y'know, spread the love instead of hate?
