We’re having fun now right? This whole June 18th thing is bringing out the best in everyone and doesn’t bear any resemblance to that long forgotten release date square-off between Kanye and Curtis in 2007. That was then and, even still, 50 forced the issue.
No, what we’re facing right now is a slew of artists warming up summer the way it should be done. There’s no manufactured beef or even contempt for each other. They all seem to be producing the quality of work they and we, as fans, can be proud to listen to and share.
Besides the big three, Statik Selektah’s dropping a project plus Mibbs and Snoop DeVille have one in the oven. There are probably even more projects that I’m forgetting to mention who also drop this month. It’s summer and this is rap. This – this whole June 18th thing – is the energy rap should have about it.
Anyways, here’s Mac’s video for his album’s title track, “Watching Movies.” Obviously, his album hits stores and we’re five tracks in to hearing the whole thing. And, from what Ryan tells me he heard at the listening session, it’s good, borderline great.
May as well enjoy it.
