Hi. My name is PropaneLV, I’m a white rapper, and these are my thoughts. I’ll be blogging here on Dirty Laces every Thursday. Don’t tell my mom, cuz I might say a few things that she doesn’t need to hear me say. Anyway….
Before we go any further in diagnosing this comparison we must first take a moment to be honest with ourselves. The black NFL quarterback has always been under appreciated and overly scrutinized. James Harris was the first African-American (meaning black) quarterback to start in the NFL and consequently only lasted 2 games. Since then, for whatever reason (mostly race) when a “black” quarterback is implemented as the leader of the offense armchair fans find themselves booing quicker. Coaching decisions are scrutinized, jersey sales tank, and overall crime rates in the city increase(this may or may not be true).
DJ Premier on the production for the latest track from Mac Miller, which will find it’s home on Mac’s upcoming ’92 til Infinity mixtape. The track is cool, but a bit underwhelming if I dare say so. His debut album Blue Slide Park is due out November 1st.
Just bumped into this over at Remix The Video and uhh…. I love it. Cover artists are an interesting thing to me, and this Neon Hitch lady is no exception. At what point do you decide that you should just make your own music and stop covering other people’s? Anyway, the Mac Miller cover is completely out of left field and cool as hell.
The first single and accompanying video from Mac Miller’s upcoming debut album Blue Slide Park comes as no surprise since he alluded to it in our girl Carissa’s interview with him for KarmaloopTV on Tuesday. The video is cool as hell, but I’m a bit skeptical about naming your first single after a market back home. It’s not exactly Black & Yellow, but by now I trust Rostrum Records knows exactly what the hell they’re doing. Shout out to them, and Rex Arrow Films as well on the video production.
