    Amos Barshad

    Much like Michelangelo after the Sistine Chapel, Rae Sremmurd must now ask themselves: Where does one go after perfection? "No Flex Zone" was an immaculately breezy summer jam, and we've been crafting shrines to it in our closets all s...

    Amos Barshad

    Kendrick's "Control" verse unleashed a tidal wave of responses, but it was an inversely proportional kind of thing: Unlike the original shit-stirrin' bars, most MCs' retorts were bland and predictable and easily brushed off. You were either: A du...

    Amos Barshad

    Drake, "Wu-Tang Forever" So Drake took "It's Yourz," off Wu-Tang Forever — one of the greatest, hardest, truest punch-your-best-friend-in-the-face rap songs of all time! Of all time! — and integrated it into a, uh, you know, Drake so...

  6. The VMAs Live in Brooklyn, and Prince's Endless After-Party

    Amos Barshad

    Let's get this out of the way: There's no particular reason to go see the VMAs live. This thing is not a live show that happens to be televised: It's a performance-first, production-heavy event, rendered in MTV's signature jump-cut OCD style for TV c...

    Amos Barshad

    So far, helpfully, each iteration of Drake has had a clear and distinct through-line. In the first round, tracing roughly from his mixtape So Far Gone to his proper debut Thank Me Later, it was Drake as a broken-hearted oversharer, all tears, regret,...

  9. Yep, Amanda Bynes Got Arrested

    Amos Barshad

    The Amanda Bynes Meltdown, which had been screeching along all fine and dandy with cheek piercings and head shavings and vagina-murder-by-Drake requests, reached its inevitable bum-out low point last night. Sweet ’Manda got arrested. In her own...

    Daft Punk, "Get Lucky" After oodles of anticipatory action, the full Daft Punk x Pharrell single is finally here, and so now the Internet can start arguing about it (vis-à-vis the correctness of the hype cycle, over/underratedness, classic ...

    Kendrick Lamar, "Poetic Justice" No, Kendrick didn't get the Janet Jackson cameo he so rightly desired, but this clip is certainly still worth your time, at the very least as a chance to bask in the warm glory that is Kendrick's extended victory...

  13. Chris Brown and Frank Ocean Got Into a Brawl This Weekend

    Amos Barshad

    You couldn't have scripted this better: On Sunday night at Los Angeles's Westlake Studios, Chris Brown, arguably the most media-reviled figure in pop music, got into a fight with Frank Ocean, arguably the most media-beloved. And while hearing the fac...

    Amos Barshad

    OK, yes, there is some call for skepticism here: the release date for A$AP Rocky's official major label debut, LONG.LIVE.A$AP, has already been pushed back twice (first it was September 11th, then it was Halloween); also, it's a high-priority rap alb...
