So this is pretty crazy and great. Why not? More Wu Tang is always better.

Joetorreous B.I.G., everybody.
Every Wes Anderson Song?
Now I need to start assembling this playlist.
This album is better than it has any right to be.

One thing that I think drew me to Faith No More when I was a teenager was how much they all just seemed like a bunch of weirdos. Not like weird-for-weird’s sake weirdos—I could never stand that phony shit—but like people that felt totally free to follow their muse to whatever weird-ass place it wanted to go. I respect that. And it looks like time hasn’t dulled that for them at all. Awesome.
Run the Jewels is great. Like, all-time great. But Killer Mike is goddamn amazing all on his own. This song’s politics are pretty much precisely on point.
And like Mike, I’m glad Reagan’s dead.

In a medieval game
I foresee terrible trouble
And I stay here just the same”
