so Tyler the Creator is turning into Joji. personally I think they're both more talented at making dirty raps. This genre was huge when it first came out but the sound gets really repetitive in my opinion.

You're wrong about the context of Okie from Muskogee, and you're also way off base about Sunday Bloody Sunday. If a protest song is against an institution, then a song about the conflict in Ireland between protestant and catholic factions absolutely counts.

Revisionist History is by far my favorite podcast. Being a musician, I was very excited to hear what Malcolm gladwell would do with his music podcast. all I can say is I found it boring and not a little disappointing. sure hope he gets back to what he does best.

It is odd, he trailed the series so heavily on the back of the revisionist history series (which is worth a listen) that it sounded like multiple episodes were ready to air, but clearly not, or just not released yet
