    Been meaning to get round to this too, Quelle Chris is so damn good. Also recommend Obongjayar's debut, he was featured on the Simz album last year:

    My thoughts on the album: I really love the overall themes of generational trauma/guilt & shedding the "saviour" label. He's really personal here, telling us stuff like cheating on Whitney, the cousin suing him, and having writers block for 2 years. Even though I don't think it's great all the way through musically, there are so many stand outs. Father Time, Mother I sober, Mirror, N95, Silent Hill, Mr Morale. I think there are some difficult questions to be asked with the use of the f-slur in Auntie Diaries. One on hand, yes the message is great, and the use of the slur makes the impact of the last lines more poignant, and you could argue that is similar to a film or tv show where actors might use slurs. But on the other hand, a lot of LGBT people have called him out for the use, and it's not right to dismiss the valid concerns- in music, you are more likely to have people sing along, you listen to it way more than how often someone watches visual media. I'm not too sure what to think about it, as a straight guy it was an impactful song for me. Regardless, I can't wait for Glasto. I think there is a strong chance we will see some tap dancers. Baby Keem and Tanna Leone seem likely to guest. Would also love to have a final black hippy reunion as Mr Morale his last album on TDE. All eyes on Milan!

    I think Biggie is an incredible storyteller, and "I got a story to tell" and "notorious thugs" are perfect songs, but there is a bit of fluff. Diddy whispering all over it is so annoying. Completely agree with the Jay Z picks, I'd put Reasonable Doubt there too.

    Carter II and III are better than IV, I can concede Life After Death being classic but I don't feel like it is

    I don't really think he needs another classic, biggie only has one. 2Pac only has one or two (me against the world is the best pac album!!!) and they're in the GOAT conversation. Good Kid and TPAB cemented his status for me, everything else is just a bonus. Wu Tang are icons with only one classic (if you don't include the solo stuff). Lil Wayne is up there for his feature and mixtape run, and you can argue has no classic albums, just a very consistent run of classic verses. Guess it's more about impact than anything else really
  8. Mos Def/Yasiin Bey just postponed his London gig for the second time, he would be worse than a Lauryn Hill booking

    After re-listening to them all, I believe the ranking is: Heart pt 3, 5, 4, 2, 1

    Last verse is in the perspective of Nipsey Hussle it seems, a lovely tribute
