Syllabus Day

9/5/2020
Episode transcript from Otter.ai: How's it going guys and welcome to the first episode of the Put Me On podcast. I'm your host Jaylan Harrington. A little bit about me, since this is our syllabus day. I'm a junior studying communication. And I suppose my fun fact is that I also write, so if you like football, pop over to TechnicianOnline.com and we read some of my stuff on the football beat. But as far as music and me, I mean, some of my favorite artists include Mac Miller, Snoh Aalegra, the Passenger, the Weeknd, Lana del Rey, I mean, I'm into a bunch of genres, but I think the biggest is absolutely rap. You know, I of course, I like the top three artists, you know, your Kendricks your Cole's your Drake's, but I'm also a fan of the new artists. So, you know, the Baby's, Little Baby into Da Baby. I like NBA Youngboy I like little TJ, you know, all of those guys. I also like you know, your favorite rappity, rap rappers. So people like Griselda, Roc Marciano, Stove God Cooks, you know, your real grimy rappers. But enough about me. I mean, what's this podcast all about? It's about music, and specifically, rap and R&B. So the idea here is I want to listen to all the new music coming out in those two genres and try and tell you what's decent each week, so that you don't have to do that all by yourself. So you know, each week we're going to talk about the new music that comes out, then maybe spotlight an artist or a project or two. And sometimes we might even talk about things that are going on in the culture. So, you know, with that kind of leading out of the way, let's get started new music, and there is a lot of it. Let's start with the only major album release from last week. Flee Lords pray for evil two a collaboration with the producer Mephux and it's a second album in the past two weeks. Now of those two, it's absolutely the better one. I mean, Flee Lords, like most other grimy rappers, in the sense of the style is going to be the same, you know, the lyrical content, the flow all of those things, it's going to be pretty one note, they're going to hit you over the head with that. And if there's nothing else, then you're going to get tired of them. So the production is really what's going to separate a certain track from another one. And from Mephux, his style really sits well with Flee Lord I think. So it gets stale in the second half I mean all the standouts really come in the first half, including the second and the third tracks. Those are the best two songs on the album and they had the best two features on the album, one by Rock Marciano all in all perfectly evil two is a very, very good grimy rap album. If that sounds like is something that's up your speed, you know, those coke bars, that boom bap production, you know, that's gonna be it for you. You're gonna like the album. Now on the singles, and let's just start out by saying, I need to know. Okay, I need to know what type of hold Bella Hadid has over the Weeknd. I need to know it's, this is insane. I mean, in 2018, he released an EP right. And it was all about how sad it was about her and about losing her right. And you know, he had that one song that also shit on Selena Gomez right? Then he takes a year off. Okay, he comes back and then 2020 he releases after hours, an album full of 14 songs about how he's sad about Bella Hadid and how he's lost her. And now he comes back and gives us this Calvin Harris song. I mean, he will not stop talking about this girl and she must be amazing. So for those who are unaware, the weekend dropped a song with Calvin Harris called Over Now. And this song is the second example from this year of the Weeknd trying to slip some lyrics past us over some upbeat production right so earlier this year on the song heartless started, out the gates with never need a bitch I'm what a bitch need right. Two minutes later when we're not paying attention. He's crying about what a terrible person he is. Same thing here. Okay, he starts the song off...
