Yeah, Ticketmaster claimed they started that whole "flux rate" bull horsefeathers to counter scalpers, but it's such a horsefeathering shameless scam.

Ozzy is not only somehow still alive, but more surprisingly still releasing new music. And it is... pretty good???




Don't get me wrong, I'm sure these songs are massively auto-tuned and produced, but it is impressive nonetheless that they can end up releasing songs that sound as good as they do considering the condition that Ozzy has been in over recent years. Sharon is going to keep that money machine going until the very end.

I actually really like that one with Tony Iommi

I met Sabbath in 1998 at an instore appearance for their Reunion album. Took Ozzy about a full minute to sign his name (first name only). I walked away from that experience telling people he'd be dead before the end of the year. Guess I was off by a little. Lol.

I saw Ozzy in 2010 maybe and he horsefeathering rocked the stage. Genuinely shocked all of us considering how feeble he always appeared on the Osbournes.

As one reviewer put it:

I’m partial to this one, if only because it offers the opportunity to hear El-P rap on something that doesn’t sound like a Decepticon stepping on your face.

Doesn't El-P do all the production work for RTJ? It's one of the things I like about them (that their production work isn't all over the place with dozens of different producers)

His production is great AND that line is true and funny.

El-P's music has sounded like a Boom Bap Borg for a good 25 years now, and he's really horsefeathering good at what he does, but it's also cool the rare times he breaks out of that, like with this or the DJ Shadow track.

saw kendrick lamar in atlanta at the state farm arena last saturday. unbelievable. top 3 hip-hop shows i've ever seen (outkast and beastie boys are the others). 29 songs in 90 minutes:

https://www.reddit.com/r/KendrickLamar/ ... r_atlanta/

all beef, no filler. floor tickets and we were about 20-25 feet from the stage. had dancers that were straight out of the whitney/moma.

(not my videos but someone uploaded some of the performances to youtube):







so good, in fact, my girlfriend bought tickets for tonight at barclays.

Feels like the Kendrick show scheduled for Columbus isn't selling well. They're pushing social media ads like crazy right now

Totally playing armchair psychiatrist, but the clips of his live show from the last few weeks definitely sound like the dude is in a much better place. He was BLEAK for a while there.

My best friend took his whole family to the Kendrick show here and they raved about it. He said it’s the best rap concert he’s ever been to and he’s not even a huge fan. His oldest son is the Kendrick fan.

It wouldn't be a RatM tour without a bunch of bummer cancelations.

That sucks, man. I was at the show where Zack hurt his leg. I was happy to see them early in the tour because I was worried about possible COVID shutdowns. Never expected an injury to cause cancellations.
