A few days ago, yours truly sat alongside journalists Jon Caramanica and Ben Ratliff for this week’s edition of The New Times Popcast. Our conversation revolved around SPIN’s review of Chief Keef’s debut, Finally Rich. The site rated the album 8 out of 10. To boot, Nas’ Life Is Good received a 7 out of 10.

Prior to the sit-down, I labeled the author Jordan Sargent for being a cultural tourist. My comments caught the attention of my colleagues (Dave Bry, Benjamin Meadows-Ingram) and opened up some dialogue regarding race.

According to Jordan, Keef, “made one of the best rap albums of the year, and one of the best major label debuts in recent memory.” He spends a majority of his review justifying Keef’s presence instead of his music. When he does get around to the music (or lack there of), he makes apologetic statements for Keef’s technical abilities as a rapper. At various points, he even compares some songs to those of the mixtape Weezy reign.

An argument that most Keef supporters make is that his “sh-t bangs”. That credit should go to Young Chop. As a whole, Keef’s music represents the lowest common denominator in rap. It suggests that being lyrical is an antiquated idea and marginalizes rappers creative scope. Yes, Chicago is a bad place. Yes, Keef is a product of his environment. But is that an excuse to be inarticulate or skillful? For some reason, hipster media/writers has this fascination of lauding crappy rap music all in the name of irony. Anyone Remember Lil B? In any event, check out the podcast above.

He right but at the same time they aren't critical of the old guard anything Jay drop is genius gtfoh.His verse on 3 kings is straight at best but it was rated in the top 5 verses of the year Schoolboy Q verse on can I speak to you off 50 tape sh*ts all over dat. They don't have enough balance to be calling out hipsters when Ross can uggh 6 times and get verse of the year.

this is exactly what they were just talking about, trying to justify Keef's presence and not his talent

Who the fu*k rated that trash Top 5?

That verse was a.ss, worst Jay verse I've heard. sh*t is fu*king terrible. Saying its straight is a disservice to an average verse
