That line of argument doesn't make a whole lot of sense. If commas meant "and" then why not use semicolons instead? (I'm not trying to argue with you; I'm just putting into text something I noticed.)

"Green Light" -Lorde

Disclaimer: I love Lorde, and this piano ballad is fantastic. The music perfectly compliments the tone of the song, and the slight vocal effects that Lorde uses only serve to further what's going on in Lorde's mind.

"No One Knows Me Like the Piano" -Sampha

If you haven't heard Sampha's newest album: GO LISTEN TO IT!!! Sampha carries so much soulful emotion in his voice. On top of that, his piano playing is fantastic and his lyricism brings him to new heights.

"Too Much" -Drake ft. Sampha

Honestly, I really only like this song because Drake talks about Houston and I have a strange pride for my birthplace. However, I think the beat is really nice and Sampha is great. Drake's bars are pretty classic Drake, so if you're into that then it's a pretty great song.

"Doug Stamper" -Open Mike Eagle ft. Hannibal Buress

Yes that Hannibal Buress.

"All Caps" -MF DOOM

I love DOOM. And his collaboration album with Madlib is my all time favorite album. I highly suggest everyone give this a shot.

"Snowing" -Daggerfall Soundtrack

This is my favorite video game (for many more reasons than I could fit in this small blurb) and the music is absolutely captivating. It added so much to the atmosphere of the game. I especially love this song because you can almost here the influence for the Skyrim main theme (which would make sense given that the province of Skyrim is kinda snowy).

"Pretentious Friends" -Modeselektor ft. Busdriver

This song BUMPS. I don't even know what it is about this song that I like so much, but I've listened to it at least twice a day for the past week.

"Ann Wants to Dance" -Papooz

This is a nice laid back indie song.

"Hey Mami" -Sylvan Esso

The minimal production coupled with Amelia Meath's vocals creates a mesmerizing soundscape.

"Mary Jane Love" -NoName

NoName is a spectacular lyricist and her beats have a nice classic hip hop influence.

"Why You Never Became a Dancer" -Whitehouse

Whitehouse is nuts. It's harsh and abrasive and like nothing you've ever heard.

Sounds like I'll enjoy him cause I love all of Hellfyre Gang!

I'll give these a listen; thank you so much!

Oh for sure. If I had more time to consistently sit down and watch movies I would definitely signup for filmstruck.

I really hope Netflix starts bringing in more classic films like this. It'd be so nice to have a place where I can easily find old films that I haven't been able to watch.

I'll check out the other guys you mentioned, but Outkast is fantastic

Formerly_Me  ·  link  ·  parent  ·  post: Who is your favorite rapper?

Madvillainy is probably my all time favorite album, so I feel you there.

I haven't actually heard of Billy Blue before! The song you linked was pretty dope, so I'll definitely check out more of his stuff.

Formerly_Me  ·  link  ·  parent  ·  post: Who is your favorite rapper?

Earl is dope! If you haven't, for sure check out Between Villains. It's got DOOM, Earl, and Captain Murphy (Flying Lotus' alter ego)

I know the classic example of his rhyming prowess is That's That, but I think Guv'nor is crazy because he uses Eyjafjallajökull and rhymes every single syllable!!
