10. Rest in Peace Lil Peep
We review the work of Lil Peep (1996-2017), the prolific rapper/singer who put out five full-lengths in two years before passing away in November. We discuss his vision, his potential, and what could have and would have been, as well as my realization that he would have have ushered in my long-anticipated return of mainstream rap-rock. We mostly talked about Hellboy and "The Song They Played (When I Crashed Against The Wall)". We call him emo and pop punk, sorry Lil Tracy. I couldn't get...
Part 9: A. G. Cook Chef Knife, Pop 2 by Charli XCX ft. Meaghan Garvey
Our Charli XCX coverage continues as we are joined by Pitchfork contributor Meaghan Garvey to review Charli's newest tape, Pop 2. Topics include a review of Takashi 69's yah mon sandwiches, Pop 2 vs. Number 1 Angel, Farrah Abraham, the past, present, and future of PC Music, and how many times we cried listening to the record (Tyrone didn't for the record, cold). Sorry I couldn't think of a better title. Read Meaghan's review in Pitchfork and her Pitch article on PC Music. Follow her on...
Part 8: Big Sean's Detroit Metro Aria ft. Al Shipley
We bring out musician and freelance writer Al Shipley (real-life music critic!) to discuss the collalbum from Big Sean and Metro Boomin. We examine the phenomenon of Big Sea, his self-care routine, and my top three least favorite rappers! Al's daughter also makes a cute cameo you won't want to miss! Al's Twitter: @AlShipley, Metro Boomin playlist by Al on Dowser's, his 2017 Top 20 Radio Hits. Here's a link to the interview we reference, with Big Sean and Metro.
Part 7: Tha Tour Hits New York y la Raperia Indígena de Nitty Scott
I said this is Part 8 but it's 7. I was faded off Legal Lean I'm sorry. Tyrone visited me in NY, where the hottest rapper is--WHO!!? We danced awkwardly and didn't catch Nitty Scott but here we talk about her new album Creature! Here's a video of her performing on Chris Gethard, not sure if this is what Tyrone was referencing. As always, support our sponsor Legal Lean by pouring up a deuce and queuing up tha Stitch! Please contact us for sponsorship opportunites, esp. if you're a...
Zone 6: The Stitch vs. Radric Davis
Stitch Gang Tha Book Club. We discuss The Autobiography of Gucci Mane, published September 19, 2017. We also discuss UFC 218 (holy shit) and, briefly, UFC 100 yay MMA! For the record my favorite Guuci Tape is the Burrrprint 3D The Return of Mr. Zone Six and Tyrone's is Chicken Talk (he shares this opinion with Gucci, actually). As always thank you to our sponsor Legal Lean. It will not leave you constipated for years on end. Pour up a deuce and queue up the Stitch! Hit us up on...
Part 5: Piss Brown, Shartbreak on a Full Moon
Listen along (or not) as we go track by track on the double-disc epic Heartbreak on a Full Moon by Piss Brown, awful man. Please torrent the album. I had to go do something with my day other than listen to this we only did 40 songs and not the 5 bonus tracks. I was drinking mimosas and I thought I didn't feel that drunk but in editing it seems I was. Tyrone was geeking as well. I apologize if the editing is messed up at points, huge chucks of my audio were cut off so I had to do a lot of...
Part 4: Pitchfork WILL Regret Giving "Number 1 Angel" a 6.3!!
Very low energy show for me, I did not not convey my love for this release, Charli XCX's "Number 1 Angel." Woman of colour YASSSS. I forgot to discuss race at all actually, which would have been interesting. Anyway check out this fucking record!! Here's the Pitchfork review which is reasonable actually: https://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/23059-number-1-angel/
Part 3: Roll in Pieces
We go long covering the latest release from "Bodak Klack" and the discography of "Sex Temptation", two of the most problematic bastards in rap today. Bodak recorded his best song after getting off a flight from another state where he'd been indicted on a rape charge. Vin Diesel Tentación serially abused and battered his girlfriend and I think assaulted a pregnant woman. On top of that he tags his songs on SoundCloud as "alt-rock" unironically. We also go over John Wick(s) and get into our...
Part 2: Two Pump Chumps
We discuss Lil Pump's self-titled debut mixtape. We recorded a whole MMA segment on UFC 217, which I attended live. But I forgot to hit record lol. Suffice it to say I screamed my throat raw. Re: raps we get into this tape, veteran rappers doing the job, a live report from a Pump concert Tyrone attended, zans, lean, how we haven't done any of that, $3000 Gucci pants??!? We describe the tape as [spoiler follows] "good." If any editing sounds weird it's because I had to edit out "audio...
Part 1: Thought Breaker
Stitch Gang Tha Tour Part 1!! The concept overall will be discussing rap and MMA, but we cut out the MMA part this episode, which is why we never come back from the break. But we do discuss one of my albums of the year and a comeback for the ages, Chief Keef aka Chief Sosa aka Chief Turbo's Thot Breaker. Moo moo moo moo.
