Personally, I was really excited for this album and now I’m fucking pissed at it. The record is so fucking disappointing. Gorilla Zoe has one of the dopest voices in the game and he comes with some fucking candy-ass bullshit record. Motherfuckers need get the fuck off of pussy-ass bad boy and bust some real raps. The album starts off with “Do Something” which goes hard and you think the album is going in the right direction when Zoe tells you that your favorite rapper is a sissy.

Then you got “Hood Nigga” which is the cut that blew him up. It’s fucking dope but it’s also been out for over a year, so I skip that shit right into “Money Man” which is kind of like a b-side version of “Hood Nigga”. After that shit, the album pretty much goes into the shitter. Some dumb fuck thought it would be cool to rock a vocoder on “Battlefield”, I guess they didn’t get the memo that T-Pain fucking sucks ass. Then Zoe and Young Joc did a song about taking your fucking shoes off when you get into their fancy cars. It’s better than their stupid-ass wet pussy song though. Oh god, the fucking songs for the ladies or whatever bullshit demographic they try to justify that dumb shit are the worst tracks.

To be fair the album isn’t the worst shit out but it’s so fucking forgettable that the more I listen to it the more pissed off I am that they put it out. This record could and should have been fucking dope as hell. Zoe isn’t an amazing lyricist but the motherfucker sounds so fucking cool that it’s not hard for him to make some bangers. His Hollyhood mixtape is ten times better than this album. Zoe’s Boyz In Da Hood song “Everybody Knows Me” is better than this entire record. If you don’t know about Gorilla Zoe, don’t buy the album just buy that song and listen to it on repeat for an hour. It’s a much better experience than this bullshit record. Shit just watch the fucking youtube video.

The underwear over their line is my favorite part.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
