Sendoff! Tomorrow! Earl Sweatshirt is coming to town, and while we’re all ready to Get Down to Some Sick Beats and Rhymes, everyone knows his lyrics can get pretty sad. But don’t worry, Kenyon. In moments of musically evoked emotional vulnerability, you can get productive. Instead of tearing up when Earl spits fire about missing his grandmother, keep that game face on, and honor yours. Memorize the following lyrics to scream tomorrow with your grandma in mind:
Awright awright awright. First things first, I love words. I love learning new words, using weird words, listening to Bo Burnham’s “Words, Words, Words” … you get the picture. So a few days ago, when I checked The Thrill‘s list of posts going up this week, I was confused to see a word I didn’t expect in a post that didn’t make sense. According to my fellow editors, I was to write a post on “Cam’ron’s List of Riders”.
Alright, here’s the deal. We are kickin’ it old skool this weekend, going all the way back to the ‘Crazy Nineties’. Not only that, but we’re going to give you some banging rap songs from the decade that saw the genre take over the country. Blast these from your boombox and pour some out for Tupac and Biggie, becuase shit’s about to go down.
