My new post for the WEEKEND Watchers blog (blog of the entertainment paper I edit, sorry for all the fucking self-promo, I suck) that is approximately half-thrash-related. Enjoy.

Your professors need to give you more homework. You clearly have too much time on your hands ;)

Haha, my company pay me too, but when they require me to produce something that's bullshit they get told where to go ;)

It's funny I used that because I actually hate the -gate suffix as well on anything but Watergate. It's just kind of been made a part of the lexicon and sometimes we all trip up. :lol:

Enjoyed that more than I thought I would. Nice piece of light hearted writing altogether! :)

Big Daddy Kane would fall more under the 80's than the 90's for the big 4 of hip hop. Actually, I know for a fact he would, because the big four of solo MC's in the 80's were LL, Rakim, KRS-One, and Kane. Nas, jay-Z and even 2pac are more appropriate for 90's MC's.

Interesting comparison of Slayer and Kesha though.

Definitely Googled "big four of hip hop" and found that list, so I can't speak to its accuracy. :lol:

Never play by the "rules", bro ;) If there's one code to live by, that's my favourite. I've made two careers out of it. Well, one career and one "career" ;)

LL cool Jay was a great rapper back then but to call him the greatest and place him as the big four? Blasphemy.

Nas, Kool G Rap and even 2pac are more appropriate for 90's MC's.

Fix'd.

Also...Kool G Rap shits all over anything made by Jay Z. He created Mafioso Rap/Hip hop. A Style of hip hop that would later be taken by MCs such as Nas and Rakewon(both rappers have said countless times in interview that Kool G Rap straight up influenced them and went as far to say that he started the genre...if you want to even call mafio so rap a genre...They even have some of their albums DEDICATED to Kool g rap, forgot which albums but its on the back covers.)

But I definitely concur with KRS, Rakim and Kane as the big four of 80s mcs.

"Slayer was singing about Nazi death camps and Satanic rituals. They took thrash and pushed it to its edge yet maintained their popularity. Thatís what Ke$ha is doing."

lmfao, god damnit brad :lol:

Yeah, I don't really see how Ke$ha pushes things to the edge.

He wrote an essay about how Kid A by Radiohead was a concept album about 9/11. Despite being released almost a year prior. Yeah.

I never called him the greatest, and why wouldn't he be a part of that big 4? If he wouldn't be there what solo MC from the 80's would be?

My mistake: he said it predicted it. He tries to save his dignity by saying it's "half-assed" and that he's not entirely serious, but come on. Most of the parallels he draws make Nostradamus' "predictions" seem like hard science.
