  • Thought it was pretty bad TBH lol
  • I don't even know what to make of kendrick's endorsement of XXX....so dumb
  • Wiki has the best new album out, milo maybe second
  • I like the Wiki a lot
  • Listened to about 1 minute of Luv is Rage 2 and I already have brain damage
  • welcum 2 lil uzis world
  • when I saw that Apple Music refers to this album as "post-trap" I wanted to kill myself
  • I thought it was great yknow it's not really meant to be listened to sober in a chair alone it's meant to be listened to drunk at a party on the dance floor
  • I love uzi so much I wish he repped philly more :(
  • And post-trap is an absolutely appropriate label even if it's silly- it's rearranging elements of trap music to do things that are not part of the original scope of trap music, just like post-rock and rock and post-punk and punk
  • "do things that are not part of the original scope of trap music"

    Like what?

    Well, he's not rapping about being in the trap for one thing
  • really really enjoying the new milo
  • @geo It's his best work, I think.
  • I wouldn't go that far but it's dope. New Uzi is dogshit though.

    "Well, he's not rapping about being in the trap for one thing"

    Point being? He could be rapping about Arthur for all I fucking care so this is a pretty null point
  • By that same logic clowns like Jake Paul or Lil Peep could also be allowed into the "post-trap" club since they don't talk about anything that the "initial scope" of trap music was about. A sound as mainstreamed and commodified as trap is obviously going to have people using that sound to rap about whatever they want
  • I don't think post-trap is a bad label for lil peep at all lol
  • Yea I agree with shooty, I think for me the issue is I don't like any of the music that falls into the category. At least not that I've been exposed to
  • Post-trap is trap with a sad boy aesthetic
  • I've heard the same label applied to Lil Yachty and that probably offends everyone here lol
  • I was solidly pro Lil Yachty until Teenage Emotions
  • He's def just doing trap tho tbh

    @toon_malk yeah lil peep is trash but there's actually some pretty cool stuff embedded in the movement imo (namely purpdoggs recent releases)

    Actually honestly everyone should listen to this record but no one prolly will but now at least I can say I shared it.
  • edited August 2017
    Both of those records actually

    (/chainpost)
  • which is to say I was solidly pro Lil Yachty until Lil Yachty became solidly anti-music
  • I like that OmenXIII the most of what you posted
  • I see some potential aesthetically for what some of these people are doing but imo i haven't heard anyone really expand that aesthetic to something that resonates more
