Lil Uzi Vert's XO Tour Llif3 is great, extremely melancholy feeling with a really upbeat beat and lyrical delivery, with some really dark lyrics :

Some interesting Mos Def with a jazzy feel:

Wayne's latest feature gives me hope he'll release some music I'm excited about soon:

XXXTentacion works with a lot of different sounds, and I'm partial to dark and violent tracks, so this has been getting some air-time recently:

Some goofy fucking trap:

I have a different translation, but I'm curious, how are you finding the russian nickname dilemma? Is it very clear to you which character is which, or is it a puzzle? Are you very familiar with russian writing?

This is a particularly good strategy, because we know (the biblical) God will take bets (see: the story of Job), or at least, he has taken one.

My first response is "what a good idea". My second response is "what about funding"? Wikipedia would require many times more employees if this method was adopted. And not just grunts, either. People who have some level of specialization, and therefore, expect bigger checks.

I think a possible compromise might be to have "account validation" of sorts. Add an accreditation option for user accounts on wikipedia. If you can prove you have, say, a degree in economics, maybe you should get more of a say in articles about economics. That's the best "half-way" option I can think of.

Wikipedia is just the obvious comparison, I think this method could be used for lots of user-driven sites.

Still, the SEP is a really cool site, and well maintained. A pretty ingenious solution to a long-standing problem.

Maxo Kream's Album "Maxo 187" is my current pick for the best trap album of the year:

Travi$ Scott has offered up another decent trap album, though I think the strong track is:


I've also almost finished listening to Honeymoon by Lana, though I think as of the first listen it's fairly lack luster.

Dr. Dre's Compton is a surprisingly decent album, given his long hiatus, and the release of an album seemingly to promote the movie he's involved with.

I'd link to "Talk about it" if I could, but finding a copy that will stay up long enough to be useful is difficult.

Father's short EP is alright, but certainly not special the way some of his other work is.

In another genre, I've been enjoying Dopethrone by Electric wizard:
