It's ridiculous that anyone would read the New York Times for music coverage. Still the sad truth is that staff critic Jon Caramanica wields serious influence over the commercial hip-hop landscape, his master narratives weaving mittens for inept writers everywhere to handle trend rappers. So with another Grammy gala toasting mediocrity upon us, I thought it was a fitting time to eviscerate his write-up of last week's Stretch and Bob reunion show
It should be of no surprise to hip-hop heads that the A&E collaboration project between Brooklyn and Boston legends Masta Ace and Edo G is beyond butter. But this video soars past any and all expectations. If this joint doesn't win a VMA next year, I'm jumping on the fucking stage.
